The Beautiful, the Bad and the Psychotic
Alex & Just Patty
I’m losing my train of thought,
I’m coming off the tracks,
My contaminating cause is lost,
When everything is turned to black,
But with the lights out, it’s less dangerous,
And with this god-like power of poetry,
I find out that we’re all brainless,
Poverty and loneliness, I can’t contain this,
My emotions now are purely naked,
My life is utterly shambolic and shameless.
Type over the moon and scribble out these stars,
Will write for food, can’t you see my rib bars?
I’m filling up on philosophical words,
Scoffing all this hurt; turn the oven up, the heat helps,
If lovers come they get burnt,
My words are the corruptors of worlds,
I’ll have you stuck in reverse,
A wondrously strung verse,
Understood, it’s understandably coheres,
My meaning means nothing if it’s not forced head first.
See through my eye of the blackest storm,
Can you hear that barking guard-dog?
I’m coming at you all as a dark horse or a shark with killer claws,
Putting your smiles to bed until your laughs lost,
Sanity, it won’t last long, so back off,
I have hacksaws, gasoline and a matchbox.
No light lives here,
Born to fight or disappear,
Wishing you were here,
Where history belittles me,
Cities sights within me,
Now I’m in open flight over the sides I fly,
Downwards I drive; gentle gravity has little interest in me.
The road to your destination
Is one hell of a bumpy ride
Keep pushing forward without hesitation
Even in the most darkest nights
The moon will guide your path
And the stars will lead the way
I find out that we aren’t all heartless
Love and kindness, you can do this
Your emotions are raw and defined
Your life is still a blank canvas
Paint a lullaby and travel a thousand journeys
Feed of courage, can you see the opportunities?
I’m dazzling with endless determination
Stop the bleeding, heal the bruises, the cold helps
Love will heal what words can’t
My letters are the center of reflection
I’ll get you in first gear
A verse written so sincere
Understanding can melt an iron heart
Love glues together whatever broke apart
See the road appear throughout the fog
Can you hear the serene calling?
Tame that wild horse, or let it break free
Sanity is overrated, creativity takes its toll
Fire can be put out with water, so go ahead
In the dark you can still fight
Even tell wrong from right
Where history lies behind me
The future is calling for me
So spread those wings and set yourself free
Even if it means living a life on the edge of sanity…
