John Coopey on THE CONTINUING STORY OF THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER (4 hours ago)
Where were the words
why couldn't we talk
So much I wanted to say
but the words got caught in my throat
Why did the magnet push us apart
when there were words to say
Could it be different at a different time
was it just the timing
I don't know
So off beat
We couldn't get the timing
of the dance
Yet the magnet d...

I understand, I know.
When you look at me
I'm not much else but a ghost.
That needs to let go…
Not everything you've done to me
I've been trying so hard to fix my problems
I've turned are lives into one
Its not you
Understand this for me
You work hard for your girls
I understand I'm disappointing
My words hurt I know
I wish you could see the dark place

Its so much easier
not thinking for yourself
To not be yourself
To not care for yourself.
You hurt less people
You don’t get in the way
You make people happy
Your feelings just go away.
Deep down inside
You know you are screwed
That one day soon
Someone is going to wake
Something inside of you.
Confusing how its not yourself
That opened up t...

My heart is immersed in a jelly
All sounds blocked, all feeling numb

Death warmed up
Every cell is sad
Has given up
Just an empty, breathing vessel.
Is this what it is like at the lowest point?
Or is there further to fall?

If time had stopped,
Where you stood and waved -
A hint of a smile that couldn't be erased,
And we forgave each other.
Like, old friends reuniting...
Old stories to tell and old feelings long gone.
You knew while I couldn't figure it out,
As a bystander I heard the news.
I had treated life like a dream,
And you were a form of reality as you stepped right in.
You taught me about the th...

I'm staying up tonight
To find that lucky star in the sky
But I think it fell in a black hole.
I’ve been searching
For the sun to come out
But it burned out years ago.
I was surrounded by such beauty
I could not take my eyes off of you
But I wasn’t enough to captivate you for long.
My heart used to beat for you out of time
You were like a flower that st...

It's all a trap,
You say just one drink, won't hurt right?
Just one line, I won't do it again.
Just once , I want to try the needle to see what the big fuss is about...
I'll just kiss you once , like you won't break my heart.
Just to flirt with death and heartbreak seems to be an addication itself.
Flirtation, the most innocent form of doing something that will lead to something...

Every morning indecisive and overwhelmed
Who should I sit by?
The question is,
Who would want to sit by you?
I mean, No one wants to,
And you know it.
That's not true.
I've got plenty of people who wouldn't mind me.
There’s the girl I sit next to in class
And we talk from time to time.
Oh, and don't forget the boy who waves hi to me i...
