waking up from death


i'm losing all the things i never wanted to keep
it's like waking up from death again to breathe
all the ghosts are gone now, the slate has been wiped clean

so ride, ride on 'til the monkeys are off your back
he said fly, fly on and don't you ever turn back

you know the freeway is no place for a pair of red balloons to be
but the rebel in you will meet up with the outlaw in me
when living replaces this hot hot air we speak

so ride, ride on 'til the monkeys are off your back
he said fly, fly on and don't you ever turn back

sandpaper heart (haiku)

hand in hand again,
this sandpaper heart and i..
we sleepwalk through life

swimming (haiku)

swimming in the mind,
through rolling rivers of time
sweet thoughts, they linger

figure eight

spinning around in circles
our arms stretched out for miles
cross-eyed and dizzy
don't you dare look down

this is just the way it has to be
this is just the way it has to be
don't you dare fall down

climbing toward the sunrise
vines twist into a figure eight
fearless and lovely
they don't dare look down
don't you dare look down
don't you dare fall down

detour (haiku)

taking a detour
in the search for the sacred
to slow dance tonight.

in whispers (haiku)

in whispers she lives
as his eyelids open, close
wake me, take me home.

eggshells (haiku)

under full moon sky
on a tightrope ten feet high
she walks on eggshells.
