Poised between two worlds
The comfort of angels to your right
The devil of change to your left
Nobody knows the path you walk
My friend of the streets
Others cannot know the poetry
Your soul sings

Poised between two worlds
Apart from the daily grind
Communed to the lost and hidden
Cold comfort and sweet abandon
Hold onto your hope however you can
Send out that sweet breath
Your soul sings

When the day brings you salvation
Will your eyes see the road out of here
When another soul can ease your sorrows
Will they see the chance and sieze it
When temptation gives you the nod
Will you know to give it the finger
There is no time except now
To release whatever it is
Your soul sings

Bliss Nirvana Passing

Yellow marigolds smiling
in the night
grey clouds and dinner sounds
these people
never let their children sit still
they run about the beach
their grown up dreams
out of reach
out of reach
daddy uses plastic cards
buys them pizza slices
the wind blows wind past them
past my glasses
casting shadows
This tall streetlight
mimics the sun
while I write this
the sky dimming down
I don't want to leave this
bliss nirvana
don't want to hand over this
tonight tomorrow
crash in the work and the calls
people I don't wanna speak to
only just getting to know myself
through the chaos that
surrounds you
