what do you call it?

Charming Madness



My mind floods through to the core
Minutes
Slowly they slide through obscurity
…. I let it beckon me
it's easier to escape into my mind
Madness can sometimes surround me
In
and throughout this dark room.
Heavy breathing ………………………………….
And you are beside me
So much
it's all around.

My mind
So vast
Stretching here……………… and then sooooooooooooo far
It takes me to a different realm
I see it,
It shows me one after one
Or it can be
Like a fast picture show.

I laugh and I scream
I cry and I shout
It's only a movie
But I am worn out.

Me, yes……………..
Hi, I'm a Virgo and
A Fire Horse
It's so nice to meet you
Isn't it nice outside?

Laugh, no cry
The wit
and oh ………
the charm.
My inspiration
Now, there's a word
C H A R M.

Yes, I'm a cynic
But most writers are
Use it
Be creative
My inner power.

Writing
My mind
Funny,
how it escapes me
As I remind myself to breathe
Madness?
Many try to show and even say it is so

I believe
That only you will know.



not sure when i wrote this. either last year or year before. it's a favorite of mine.

Better than a fortune cookie on a rainy day my dear, what a lovely poem... I sit here typing this to you with my friend Michelle's bra on my head...one cup on my head, the other cup on Trina's head...I think we're going shopping as Siamese twins.

So...
are you breathing in,
or breathing out?

Olivia said...

My goodness, it's like seeing another side of you!

One and two words alone can express so much.

and gosh... you are so right... i'd LOVE to meet christopher. i can only imagine how he is in person...

Olivia said...

Ah, I need to remember to breathe too.
The way my mind feels lately too!

I enjoy Christopher's comments, they are so full of life and randomness :)

The Moody Minstrel said...

Well, I meant "breathing" in more of a psychological or spiritual sense, but whatever works...

Keep the muse a-rolling!
