Burn Out Blues And Bust

Organic moon light heart pounding brilliance
bursting from the seams
slipping from the sidewalls of a passion pit
Fumbling for the remote control
flip the switch from brilliance to boredom…
And some where out there is the second coming
of my redemption
The second coming of a new day
with promise and intention
Lasting longer than a flash in the pan
lime light first blush of love
Smiling from ear to ear Cheshire cat grin
that gives nothing away
But a clear image of a pure ecstatic inner
love lust glow

Because I know some things
are worth waiting for
even if the odds are in favor
of burn out blues and bust

But I’m a romantic at heart
bleeding from old wounds
and the side effects of too many
sleepless nights
Wandering around my apartment as if
the secret to a loving life
is hidden in the slow pace of walking
from room to room
The creek in the floorboard is a sure sign
I’m not alone
That a brighter day awaits right outside my door

Because I know some things
are worth waiting for
even if the odds are in favor
of burn out blues and bust
