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

My Guitar

As I run my fingers across the strings
I feel a spirit move in me
It brings a force out of my hands
An uncontrollable beat to be set free
And it feeds: off my soul and eternal needs
As I allow it to echo through the chamber
This seemingly pure instrument through which it breeds

Now You’re Gone – A Poem

From the forgotten poems circa 2000 – 2005. This one looks to be on the topic of teenage angst. This one was selected by Jacob from the stack.

Now You’re Gone

It’s like smiling
When there’s the lump
In my throat

It’s like crying
Alone, Day after Day
No one will see

It’s like lying
All those words
You said to me

And it’s loving
Every minute act
That says you still care

It’s running away
As to not bother you
And sitting alone

It’s fearing you
Yelling at me
Screaming how I’m wrong

It’s watching you kiss
Hold this other girl
And me pretending

It’s pretending
I’m fine with it
And I’m your friend

It’s facing the fact
No matter the love
I feel for you

I’ll never get you back.

Atomic — A Poem

A forgotten poem from 2010. I believe this was with the collection of notes that may have been also associated with a road trip I took in 2012, making this a little more confusing. The poem seems to be about consciousness and physics… maybe? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Atomic

I see tiny little gods
In clouds and blades of grass
I hear their voices
In the breeze
They speak like mountains
In the fog
Their fingertips make words
Unfolding strange unfurled light
Where twelfth dimension archaic belief
Falls into place
And out of sight

Where is the line between
Science; God?
Welcome, acknowledge —
As the one, I turn to
Where seams come together
I will not fall apart
These tiny gods that vibrate
With life
Two planes together intertwining
To generate
The mind.
