Deep within the lyrics

Deep within the lyrics

A Poem by Jack...

 

 

Deep within the lyrics

 

 

The closest thing I know to love­

Is something I am thinking of

In every sorted worry that my mind decides to share

 

While drinking heavy in the past

Inside the shadows I now cast

The bottom of the bottle lets me know I am aware

 

Collecting on a shouldered score

Finding it is nothing more

Than voiced in my confessions of imaginary scenes

 

Reaching for a photograph

Searching for its aftermath

Tuning off the station in the middle of my dreams  

 

The fury of this drunken bliss

Reminds me of your tender kiss

Though never having felt it, it is something that I long

 

For in the end this fairy tale

Reminds me of my quest to fail

Deep within the lyrics of some broken hearted song

Thank you so very much my friend.
Some songs take us back completely... and sometimes that is a very hard thing... I really like the rhythm of this poem, Jack, and the bittersweet sigh it brings.

Doesn't unrequited love just throw all sense of reason and logic out the window?
Lovely writing, Jack.
Now... I do have to say I've not gone off the deep end (we're talking from this moment in time...) for anyone that I have not shared a kiss. Ah, but there may have been an old high school crush from way, way back... Lol. My own insanity can relate in that a haunted kiss was/is/shall be deep within the lyrics because... well, enough about old ghosts! ;) at least the kiss is a fond real memory!
