Get, Got, Gotten.


I’m accustomed to nice things,
Like purple ribbons and blue balloons.
He crept up during the night,
With flashing lights and silver spoons.
A good night combed my hair straight through,
But it left the comb twisted and tangled.
He’s always watching from the corner,
The corner’s watching from an angle.
He tempts me with glimpses of dusk,
Hoping that I’ll take a long walk.
He’s betting I’ll have a nervous breakdown,
But my breakdowns refuse to talk.
The shadows often come to spy out the land,
Sometimes I can even hear them creeping.
They know the sunshine can’t reach the garden,
And they know the vegetables are full of secrets.
They tried to catch me on a spaghetti night,
But I knew it all too good and well.
The windows and doors sealed themselves shut,
And my sweet tomatoes will never tell.
I see him peeking through a window,
But I don’t find his looks intimidating,
Because my eyes are also a glowing bright red,
And the weight on my shoulders is twice as heavy.
My soul set out like an armed navy ship,
Refusing to suffer such a shameful defeat.
My soul crushed like an armed navy ship,
Under the weight of his massive seas.

Maybe other people would know I was insane, but would I?  In my state of mind, how would I know I was insane, because if I were and I knew it, then I wouldn't be insane, because I would have tried to stop myself from being insane, but insane is a state in which the person is not sane anymore, and I would not like to be in such a state, though I know I am somewhat, so I know that if I were insane, YOU would be the sane one.

Haha, well, maybe I'm not as sane as I thought, then.  But you know, if I were crazy, would I know about it?

based on our awesome conversations and magnetic bonds i couldnt picuture your elevator being anywhere near the top, even if you like to analyze everything. if you were normal, this never would have worked captain.

Well, maybe we could try talking regularly, so there's not use for stupid communication skills...though I'm sorry that you call them that, I can't help who I am.

This is very true.  I love it when someone says something and it's like you've heard it for the first time, but you know it's true, you just never heard it put into words...

thats why they call it a journey and not a destination. you already know you're going to get there, what matters is how. thats also why they call it life and not death.we know we're dying we just dont know how, it depends on how we live. captainize me captain.

Hm....well at least you can know where you're going, just not when or how you'll get there, but the place is all that matters, so you don't have to worry about the rest

Well, this is true, it reminds me of Terry Brooks.  It's like knowing you're gonna die, but you don't know how, so you don't exactly know, do you?

that thought is equivalent to this philosophy 'he may know my every move but he cant see me coming". or should it be "I cant anticiptae your moves but i can see you coming"? it was in one of my poems.

Hmm.....this is a thought....just because you know what's happening doesn't mean you know how it is happening...
