Midday Melancholy

Midday Melancholy

A Poem by Pandrogynite
"

Song lyrics without a tune.

"

--Refrain 1--

It's ten and that midday melancholy hits me

It swerves and stabs me in the brain

It's like a little fatal numbness

It's like a sugar shot of pain

--Refrain--


I sit and my brain idles softly

Dripping ideas in the pool

And thoughts are but gentle whispers

Of all the times I've been a fool.


I can't help all these thoughts of you

That creep up and down my spine

Even when I want to leave you

In a corner of my mind.


And I think of all the mistakes I've made,

And focus on what's right and wrong.

Obsess and stare off so bleakly,

As my brain goes off to write this song.


--Refrain 2--

It's twelve and that midday melancholy hits me

It swerves and stabs me in the brain

It's like a little fatal numbness

It's like a sugar shot of pain

--Refrain--


Lunch hits like a bag of boulders,

I'm thrown into a bloody heap,

The bustle of the average workman,

And I am just a filthy creep.


My thoughts are mine I know this all now,

And they tell me what to do and say,

But midday is a time of sadness,

When all the world's colors gray.


Until I hear that voice like thunder,

A melodic springtime song and dance,

Words meant for me to hear, now,

They offer my mind a chance.


--Refrain 3--

It's five and that midday melancholy leaves me

It ebbs and flows from my brain

There's no more of that fatal numbness

I'm just so freaking glad you came

--Refrain--
