Railroad Crossings Touch My Mind

guy-690483

Railroad crossings touch my mind
Worn jeans speckled with fading paint
Buddha found lying by the curb
Sorry ma’am, I’ve never been a saint
Life is an amazing gestation
There is nothing left to lose
Those stars have lost their luster
Welcome back home to live the blues
Daily life has never been easy
Always some sort of pain to endure
Demons breathing down your neck
Silently waiting for another liquid cure

Stayed Up All Night Trying To Write

  

Stayed up all night trying to write

I still can’t get you out of my head

Sleep didn’t come easy this night

Giving anything to only go to bed

The clock ticks past two & three

Knowing there’s nothing I’m going to find

Off dreaming of nothing, where I want to be

Another scotch to still my racing mind

Floating Through The World

Floating through the world

Soaking up life like a sponge

Trying hard to wipe away pain

To rid yourself of this grunge

Each night another debacle

Colorful dusk marking time set

Building your wall before alarm

Shredded by demons not yet met
