Ebb and Flow


Thoughts roll around inside my head

forever churning and turning

like a compost pile for a garden's spread

 

I miss so many things about writing

those things now long gone

part of my history

 

Silly lyrics that express a form of emotion

when did this carousel stop turning

and who ate all the cotton candy

 

There are so many things I wish I could say

over coffee just making small talk about fairs and such

but I do not trust my friends to care

 

I try to remain loyal to all I know that remains a stone

even though stones do not talk or express emotion

my life is like the sands of the sea

 

I think next time I shall ride a seahorse

looking into the bright mirrors with candy apple smiles

but I know I will never go to a fair again sand is now, my life

    Terrific vibe here. Spot on with the "candy apple smiles". A greatly written piece.
