GOING CRAZY AGAIN

I’ve been going crazy

Ever since

You up and left me

Leaving me high and dry

Watching Sanity

Waving gently goodbye

 

Harsh is the blade

Of indifference

Making all the difference

Cutting whispering throats

Leaving behind memories

Of long lost wailing ghosts

And heartless cruel hosts

Of laughing

Jackals and alligators

Singing psalms in the moats

Around the castle

Of misled expectations

 

Guiled and gilded

Appointments of disappointment

Leaving salty ointment

To salve

The wounds

Of crushed entitlements

And long lost titles

Of crowning achievements

Of gold belt buckles

And broken fleshy knuckles

Of sweat stained wrestling ring turnbuckles

Or scratched records spinning under turntables

Of the electric whining ratchet of the tattoo machine needles

 

 

I’ve been going crazy

Ever since

You up and left me

Leaving me high and dry

Watching Sanity

Waving gently goodbye
