Memoria Morbus

December 2, 2009

Step back and rewind
In the thicket of time
I forget who I was
I recalled who I loved
And lost all my mind

Without remorse
I veered from the course
Of expectation
Romantic relations
With cosmic force
And where do I go?

With a pocket of inspiration
Another cause for an inflammation
Of biblical proportion
And what shall I do?
When my head is on backwards
And I’m stumbling o’er words
A picture in distortion

He sings and I revel
In a voice like the devil
And who is to blame?
The nightime of my eyes
Drowned in your lies
And o-o-o-oh the shame

Watch the circuit break
And taste my own mistake
I lost myself to blue
Dionysian breathing
Memories seething
Chasing after you

And what is the point?
Of this dementia waltz
Giving in to words that ring false
To simplify the game
What do I look for?
Clawing at my neck
What a gorgeous wreck
And I call out your name

My poetry is absurd
Choking on the words
I love how you sound
Living in the fire
The spark’s uninspired
When you’re not around
