Tinkling on the Keys

Tinkling on the Keys

A Poem by Angelheaded Hipster

One more for whatever, whenever...

Its been a long time
you and I
I havent sat down like this
and actually worked at trying
to convey the thoughts of
that jangle around in my head

Its been rough, its been bumpy,
but I know in time Ill get back
into my old skin, and not be
such a f*****g downer.
Not everything in my life
is depressing, my life
is not one long sad song waltz

Im just trying to figure it out again
Im trying to remember the times we had
My smart a*s humor bleeding through
as it cut and cut and cut
and stripped to the bare essentials

I tell myself this isnt who I really am
but I think Im growing up, and I dont think
I like where the road is going.
I miss my old me. I miss making myself
laugh, with whimsical make believe
patty cakes and humpty dumpties
where the hell did I go?

I can really relate to this piece I have felt and wondered this same thing in my life eventually I just figured I'm never gonna be that again because I saw the world differently and now I have many experiences that have changed how I see and u.nderstand the world

it's hard to be an adult when we feel broken inside. I'm not sure if this is at all what you were expressing but it's what I pulled from the piece. great writing in my humble opinion!

I don`t know where you went either
but you seem like a nice enough kid,
so this is a review and it`s all for you.
Your depressed mood is not so hot '
but you write like a champ.
More please.

You just got to shake her out. She's always there. You should listen to her more... give her a chance. xxx

Ah growing up sucks sometimes and you have gotten that feeling down here perfectly...where does all of that "whatever" go?

This was beautiful Amber...as always. You haven't lost a bit of your talent.

You gotta love the journey of Return to Self. You've nailed it. The vulnerability, the questioning, all of it. :) It's great!

Sometimes back to basics is needed for us to remember where we come from and who we are, especially after a relationship has ended... we all change but deep down we are always the same cause roots can't be uplifted.
