"Writing is the socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." -E.L. Doctorow


It doesn’t take me to tell you that
Sad that you’re home?
It doesn’t take me to tell you that
Lying while you’re here
We’re both tied at a fence at our home
The rope is solid and true,
no knife
could cut through those ties
yet we roam on looking for
anything but our rope.
we found each other unbridled
It doesn’t take me to tell you that.

As wild as I found you
I never could’ve guessed –
1 year 2 month relationship

Even though you talk
like the night
and the moon or
brambles in the unknown
I never thought you were tame enough
for her.
wild enough for me.

The sands of time don’t work
well in our favor.
And he tries to turn it for you back
We’re tied fast with rope
both at home
It doesn’t take me to tell you that

You smile at what you can’t have
And to taste it, so do I
V-necked, dark hair, cowboy boots
plays guitar and speaks
like a man
Am I cutting the rope so silently,
because I’m with you?
Well if I do,
you’re on my side too.
So much for Angie’s back.
It doesn’t take me to tell you that.
