Re: Mudge's Poetry Dump

Poor Little Girl Your love affairs all started well, but none of them had legs … There’s just no place to go after you fall. You’re chasing cotton candy like you think it’s steak and eggs: You won’t find satisfaction there at all. There might be something in your eye ‘cause all you see are stars Ea...

Re: Mudge's Poetry Dump

There’s razor wire inside my chest connecting rib to rib; The wall around my heart could make Fort Knox look like a crib. All this to protect me from what no one knows is real: The things I never tell you that I feel. Oh, I admit, I laugh a lot: the whole world is my joke; But swallow your pride too...

Two Christmas Trees It’s so hard to grasp When you’re 8 years old; So he just has to ask, “How does Santa Claus know? I live in two places, So I sure hope he sees… And tells all his reindeer I’ve got two Christmas trees.” It’s a time to rejoice; at least that’s what they say… You made your choice: ...

I started a new novel, but as you're aware, my own life is so screwed up it's a wonder I get anything done at all.

Actually, most of the trouble has already happened. And that one wasn't aimed at anyone in particular ... I just heard that line and built a song around it.

How can love hurt so much? You're drawing blood each time we touch; I still want to make you mine But you're like barb wire drenched in wine. It's like tryin' to hug a porcupine. You look so innocent and cute-- With an edge like that the point is moot. I tried to step across that line, Just didn’t s...

I’m hot, I’m cold; I’m young, I’m old; I’m a little too careful and a little too bold. I’m up, I’m down; I’m silent sound; Looking for an answer that just can’t be found I know ... But I can’t take less any more; A passionate fighter In somebody else’s war. And I’m running in place just as fast I ca...

My heart is split in two equal pieces: One’s up north, and one’s in Tennessee. And I feel like a dunce – Can’t be with both at once – And it’s slowly surely cruelly killing me. So I spend a lot of time out on this highway – Back and forth, as often as I can. They both know, and they’re OK – Or at le...

I wish that I could give you Everything your heart desires; The truth is, I ain't got that much to give. I wish I had an island Where we both could retire ... These days I barely make enough to live. I have a million reasons Why I'm just not worth your while But there is one point I'm trying to make...

I like it. Third stanza doesn't seem to flow as well, to me...like what it says but it feels a little clunky. But I love the line "when I write the lyric of my life." There's a song in there somewhere.

You smugly label him An eccentric genius: Brilliant, but hopelessly out of step With the Professional World. But what you call "out of step", I call "authentic"; Where you see "genius", I see simply the courage to go against the norm; And what you call "professional", I call an embarrassment: An exc...
