Running With Scissors

"bouseki kakou"

Walking through the park i saw a child,
Arms out wide facing the sun.
Letting it's beautiful rays fill and kiss her face.
As i passed, she grabbed her skirt and started a spin...

Slow at first than picking up speed.
The light bouncing off her curls.
Like a tangle of vines in a vineyard:
Full of life and good spirits.

Suddenly she fell.
As she sat there stunned and dizzy her mother raced over to hold her.
I took a second glance and saw it was me holding you.
So small, fragile, and lost
Wiping your tears away surrounding you with assurance in my arms
"Don't worry" I said " I've got you, it's ok" dusting you off as i stand
You only smile and start to spin again,
To disappear only to leave the little girl in your cloud of dust...

The girl spinning, spinning, spinning again.
As if nothing had happened
Dirt flying off her dress as she goes
Only to fall again...

Only this time, no mother
Frightened, lost, and alone she holds her knees to her chest and cries.
I walk over and knelt down to help her...

She looks up
And our eyes meet
It was me...

L'affaire a de'raille'

I have nowhere to be
And nowhere to belong
Drifting along going nowhere fast
Finding you only to lose you in an instant

So lost inside this abstract mind
Searching only to find
That i nothing except, that i know nothing at all

My soul, my heart, my mind and spirit
You helped me see
What was wrong with me
But now i'm holding the pieces
With no way to fix it
Just lost
OH god so fucking lost

Bewildered and stunned
I stumbled through this tunnel
To only find the exit blocked and
The fire is approaching fast
Breathless i turn and stand to face it, to tired to run

The end is unknown and out of my control
All i have are these thoughts and dreams
that are out of my reach and your perfect hands
