Playing Dead

Post by audiofool » Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:54 am

well, I'm craven
and I'm cold
always doing
as I'm told
more or less
halfheartedly

punching
the clock
in my blue
argyle socks
gazing at you
contentedly

you're more
than a desk clerk
if I were more
of a knee-jerk
kind of guy

I'd move beyond
the pleasantries
offer up
the possibilities
but why deny

I'm going home
alone

you're a dream
in black and red
here I'm used to
playing dead
grinding out
the 8 to 5
your form keeps
my corpse alive

so I'll muddle
on through
plans for me
including you
on my mind
consistently

pleasing the man
in the chair
does he know
and should I care?
my guess
I'm late history

I'm going home
alone

If I could summon
up the nerve
all the things
that you deserve
wait and see

I'll treat you to
the finer things
designer shoes
and diamond rings
high society

you're a vision
from above
in leather
I'm in love
passion proves
the case
fate is written
on your face

We're going home.

My dear God. This well penned. :bow:
Entering the sanctuary of my mind may lead to perils of unknown magnitude.......... hold on and embrace the ride. Feel the tolls as we pass from existance into my sought domain of twisted reality. -negatv: 5/05-

If I changed anything I have done in my life I wouldn't be me. Personally, I kinda like me. I'm an asshole, but I'm my kind of asshole.

Friends are what help me guide myself through life. I just have to find the right direction first. -negatv- 10/06
