tears in the corner of my eyes…

     AS A POET/SONGWRITER, INSPIRATION  INTO MY SONGS HAVE A JANRA OF THEIR OWN. TO SAY A CERTAIN WORD OR PHRASE TO JOG MY PEN ON PAPER, EVEN A SMELL OR FRAGRANCE CAN KICK OFF MY MEMORIES A CERTAIN LOST MEMORY OF A BETTER TIME IN MY LIFE.

     AS FOR REMEMBERING PERIOD. IT IS SO HARD FOR MY MIND TO STAY FOCUSED LONG ENOUGH TO IMBED CERTAIN PHRASES OR SONGS TO LATCH ONTO FOR A STORY. MAYBE THE WORD PLAGARISM COMES TO MIND AS I SOON WANT TO EMBARK ON A WRITER’S PATH BE IT A NOVEL OR BIOGRAPHY OF SORTS SO EVEN TO SIT AND READ ANOTHER NOVEL HAS ITS LIMITATIONS RIGHT NOW WITH ME.

CLOUDING MY MIND TO THE AUTHORS STORY. I DON’T WANT TO DEFINETLY CLOUD MINE. YET, LISTENING TO LYRICS ON THE RADIO I REALLY ENJOY I WILL OFTEN RACE WITH MY PEN TRYIN TO COPY EACH WORD. SO LATER I CAN READ, NOT SING, THE SONGWRITER’S INTENTION BEFORE MAYBE THE MUSIC WAS ADDED.

     I HAVE THOUSAND AND ONE ‘SLED’S’ I CALL THEM. LYRICS OR POEMS HOPING TO BECOME LYRICS AND MOST DEFINETLY HAVE LEARNED LIFES UPS AND DOWNS. PLAY INTO MY SONGS.  KNOWING THE LIFE GONE BY EXPERIENCES MIND YOU, HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE TO A WRITER, FOR EXAMPLE, I COULD NOT WRITE MUCH ON A DETAILED BRAIN SURGERY FROM THE SURGEON’S VIEW AS I AM NOT A BRAIN SURGEON. YET THE EXPERIENCES I’VE  HAD AS A FOOTBALL PLAYER, SOLDIER, CHEF, PAINTER OR DRIVER I COULD BECAUSE OF MY EXPERIENCES IN THOSE AREAS.

     ON IMBELISHMENT, B.S. I’M GOOD AT ALSO BUT AS MY IMAGINATIONS GO I WOULD STEER CLEAR OF ANY OPERATING ROOM. SCIENCE FICTION, ROMANCE, WESTERN NOVELS AND THE INSPIRATION OF THESE AUTHORS, I’M GONNA GUESS EACH ONE EXPERIENCED SOMETHING IN THE AREAS THEY WRITE. EVEN TO STUDYING THE UNKNOWN AREAS BEFORE WRITING ABOUT THEM.

     SO THIS POEM I PENNED FOR THE MIND TO TRAVEL DOWN THE PAGE.

 

                                          tears in the corner of my eye…

 

                                    THE TAMING OF MY MIND

                                     HAS GRASPED JUST ONE THOUGHT TODAY

                                     IT IS THE MEMORIES OF SMILES

                                     DEEP IN MY SOUL. THE SECRET PLACE

                                      I WANT HAPPINESS.  THOSE AROUND ME

                                      AND IN MY LIFE, TOO.

                                      TO STOP THESE BLUES CREEPING IN

                                      TO HOLD THEM AT BAY

                                      SEE, THIS FEELING I HAVE

                                       KEEP IT SOMEHOW. TO STAY

                                        YET I KNOW IT WILL WALK AWAY, SOON.

                                         TURN AROUND MY BLUES.

                                          TURN AROUND THE BLUES.

                                           TEARS IN THE CORNER OF MY EYE.

                                            B;UES.

                                            MISSING YOU….
