Poem - I Survive

A YouTube musical homage to the main characters in “Lost and Delirious” let me to write the poem “I Survive”.


I Survive

I survive, but am I spared
from the sight of the straight
in their bubble so constrained
their breadth of vision is incomplete
disregarding the consequence
of love’s influence most conceived?

Perhaps the best is on their mind
this does little good when I try
their small box has tall walls
ignoring joined infrastructure
when joy is the end result
matched complete note by note.

Denying the biology of my need
with their dogma pressed to page
of what love should always be
regardless of the plumbing found
when the heart is embraced
to find the one that does the same.

Against the backdrop of fearful signs
held so high to show their god
of the truth used to save the world
these definitions are held to breast
of the love they would deny
to me and mine as I survive.

Lyrics - Friends Leave

The lyrics “Friends Leave” were inspired by a quote by Stephen Chbosky in his book “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”.


Friends Leave

Turn the page this day on another change
it is the constant when everything shifts
the sun above must be very amused
oh how many more can my heart sustain?

They say life doesn’t stop for anyone
friends come and they go by revolving door
former a blessing, latter a curse
oh is this the price of joy they bring to this soul?

Things change and friends leave
life doesn’t stop for anybody
the cross I bear for as a singular one

It seems I’m the one standing in one place
this is my illusion fostered by the world
others do wonder where I’ve departed
oh am I the vagabond drifting?

So I’ll embrace them while I allowed
by timing of my vagrancy or of theirs
as both are felt as wrinkles move across
oh when we come together as before?

Things change and friends leave
life doesn’t stop for anybody
things change and friends leave
life doesn’t stop for anybody
oh now a malady all must endure?
