I Lost My Mind – A Poem

A forgotten poem from 2000 – 2007. This one is pretty weird and a fun thought experiment. I have no idea what the inspiration was or how to interpret the descriptions. I hope those reading it enjoy this one as much as I did when I rediscovered it.


I Lost My Mind

Once upon a time I lost my mind
The chase led me to an open field
Filled with flowers towering over head
With balloon dogs chasing bubbles
Floating gently above a restless creek
Stocked with bathing rainbow fish
And cellophane men came tumbling down
Crashing apart as they hit the ground
Leaving me to search this awful place
As the skies caressed the clouds
And drops of silver rain did fall
And filled the stream with horrid screams
That led my troubled mind back home
To bed for normal, happy dreams
