05-09

it's time for me to go
back
take it way way back
in time
to the time
when it was just me
my pen
and my paper
though the tears i'll leave behind
it was serious times
with me
frankie
john
and my disillusionment
with
love
life
school
people

when i lived every word to
when your lover has gone
and closed my eyes to the irony of
back to you
when the weight of my life
rode my shoulders so hard
they ached in the middle of the day
and their only relief
was that pen to paper

it's time for me to go back
to that time when
ignorant people called me anti-social
and people i depended on
left me to sink or swim,
alone
is where i should be
and it was sad
it is sad
but i always knew
that sadness
that pen
that paper
my frankie
and my john
would never
leave
me.
