faded and jaded

26 March 2010

like my favorite shirt
that’s washed too much
i am all faded, jaded
and full of stains;
soft but tattered
my thoughts all scattered
and i just can’t trust
that i’m not totally insane.
not a day goes by that i
don’t lay awake and cry
thinking of you and wondering
why i don’t know your name;
and the truth is just this
that i’d like the promised bliss
but i just can’t risk another slip
over something so surreal
that can cause me so much pain,
not the least of which
is that like flipping a switch
i could so easily go down
a road that leads to nowhere good,
off a cliff at ninety and drown
and you just an ornament on the hood…
so to you i guess i’ll apologize
and just have to be one of those guys
who passes up on something good
because he can’t keep getting hurt.

    Excuse me … I’ll stop laughing at you in a moment. It’s the “just an ornament on the hood” bit that got me. Ahaha! Carrots and cliffs and cars … I think, when it shows up for real, it will sneak up behind you with a stick, so I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    Ehehe… I’m soooo comforting ain’t I? You need to chat with me soon or I’ll threaten to disown you.

      It’s not from lack of trying lately, you know…it’s just that we keep missing each other…
