just a couple poems


sometimes I think about her
and then start to yearn
there's just something out there
that says it's not my turn

its just so hard to give
when others hold things back
i just want to live
does it have to be white and black

life shouldn't be this hard
we try to do what's right
do we have to play a card
it jusn't seem that right

and so we all just linger
to think what comes this way
we try to put a finger
to make us feel better today

so take all this thinking
and do what you will
cause i've been drinking
but i want it still

A different man
She needs me to be
I don't know if I can
Will have to wait and see

She's not asking for the moon
What she wants, I'll give
I want to see her soon
It will be a better place to live

My life hasn't been as good
Since she said goodbye
I would do anything I could
If she'll only let me try

God how I hope this doesn't end
It's so heavy on my heart
I want to hold her again
And never ever be apart

I hope she finds the time
And gives me another chance
I want to make her mine
And forever with her dance

I wish I had a poem
Something to be happy
Of which to write

Nothing comes to mind
My brains awash
I try with all my might

I drink to much
One then another
I guess I feel better

Maybe try something else
Try to write more
Maybe a nice letter

I'm just kind of rambling
This I do know
I'll have another Crown

Sorry to waste your time
It is precious
God, I miss my town

Relationships should be easy and natural ... one-sided will never work. So I take it that the moving on thing is more difficult than planned. Hang in there, I'm sure the bikini team will be moving to your town soon.

Alrighty, then; I need to double up my efforts to get Ann Coulter to pay you a personal visit.

Reallly, you think I could write country songs? I could do that. Maybe. But here'e the deal. I have a great friend doing that now in Nashville. He has more talent in his little pinky than I do in ten of me. Starving to death writing songs isn't in my DNA. So nice of you to say though. I appreciate it.

I'll pass along one of my Mom's best lessons:
" It is NEVER had to know which is the RIGHT decision. It is ALWAYS the toughest choice".

Milk River Madman said...

Great advice. Mom's know a lot.

Good afternoon MRM,

Perhaps a road trip is in order. A vacation to a foreign land, the British isles come to mind.

Every now and then it's good to step of your own backyard and see how the other kids play.
