I Sit Mesmerized

I sit mesmerized
Watching the sun crest the horizon
Arms wrapped around the prettiest girl
I’ve ever laid my eyes on
Pulling the zipper up to my chin
These mornings are surprisingly cold
Coffee does little to remedy my plight
But I’m content, together we’re gonna get real old

Finding An Edge To Life

guy-690510

Finding an edge to life
Loose thread; ripping out the seams
Setting out for an independent life
No purpose if they’re not your dreams
Perplexing choices to those
Who forgot to shake in quaking fear
You hope to wither in the memory
Of these who are content to remain here

Just A Suburban Housedad

volvo-645486.jpg

Just a suburban housedad
Toting the kids in a station wagon
There’s no concept of cool left
Listening to Jerry slay the dragon
I’m just trying to live my life
Please keep your drama to your own
High school wasn’t fun the first time
Trust me, that coop’s been flown

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty

Oblivious to my surroundings
Because I truly don’t care
My priority is this family
Perfectly content in my own lair
Never apologizing for being me
Many have been justly infuriated
I just smile & nod
Truth is I’m quite understated

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty

I’m No Prince Charming

  

I’m no Prince Charming
But I shall give it a go
My tactics may be alarming
I can put on quite a show
Probably not the most impressive
Please keep the expectations low
But not the most aggressive
Subtly you’ll be content & all aglow

I Won’t Judge You

I won’t judge you for your past
I don’t care how your body looks
Inward – we all contain equal souls
We can all absorb the beauty of books
Go read! Fitzgerald, Kerouac, Twain
Emerson, Rand, Tolstoy, Hemingway
Thoreau, Dostoyevsky, Neruda, Yeats
Great words are forever here to stay
It is solely up to you
To build up your literary wealth
But I will constantly judge you
For the contents of your bookshelf

Suburban queens & their diamond rings

diamonds-938490.jpg

Suburban queens & their diamond rings

Thinking sparkling possessions are theirs

The object of so many men’s thoughts

Lustful fantasies in each of their stares

Primped, dolled & dressed to the nines

These bodies merely trophy wives to be stressed

They hold no special value for society

Beyond the contents under their dress

 

I’m Getting Old

OMG! I’m getting old
I’m actively searching
For the edited version
Methodically perching
Watching their content
Preserving young minds
Cultivating the innocence
For you can never rewind
