My Mind Is Twisted



My mind is twisted, not your average mind Off centre is a good way to describe it Not saying it's a bad thing or totally unwelcome Kinda like this weird kinda twist Normal and mundane just has never appealed Always had a strange outlook for sure Look at things from a different perspective A little weird but sure not a bore Everyone should try it, just give it a whirl Why am I promoting this thing Until you experience it you'll never know joy It will cause your dear heart to sing I'm really not special, just discovered a truth To feel happiness all else above Since grade school, teen years, now old and grey The secret's no secret, it's love My mind is twisted, not your average mind Off centre is a good way to describe it Not saying it's a bad thing or totally unwelcome Kinda like this weird kinda twist © Jack Ellison 2013

    Thanks Jack for reading and commenting on my recent posting. I've truly enjoyed this poem; your usual inner-most feeling that reflects the total outer world experience. Cheers Jack! JM

    Everyone has unique qualities... some twisted, some more the norm! I can't be anyone else but me! Thank you once more for your kind words... they are ever appreciated! Cheers!

    All here at Troll Lake and Acorn Falls agree: Love is not twisted... Like us, It's perfectly normal. LOL... We were doing so well till I added that last part... Love is the basis for our good feelings... like hope, and kindness... or is it the other way around? No Dragon... I'm right! We love you and keep hoping all sorts of things... Like you'll some day behave... LOL... OOOPPPS! Gotta run... I disagreed with Dragon... and we all know he's always right! Put the barbecue sauce down! Bye!...

    A twist in the mind is really quite acceptable - but a twist in the trousers is totally uncomfortable! I liked this one, Jack - not your average mind, for sure :) xox

    From an outside perspective, you may be weird. But, I am weird too. So, to me, you're normal. ;-) Nicely said! =D
