Music is the other feeling

Sometimes this world
gets me so tired I sit
with the stars for the
silence I fear.

It scares me because
it means having to deal
with the noise inside me
I let no one else hear.

this soul
that belongs to the sea
has done things for me
has done things for me

this soul
that belongs to the road
has lightened my load
has lightened my load

(Be grateful for the  lives of all people crossing  your path while walking their own)

Night opens a hole in my head
and fills it with thoughts of you.

Today I do not exist.
I grow up and weak,

I have collected
one hundred unfounded fears.

I cry over inevitable things,
over the future I cannot read

changing at the speed of light
while I'm sitting here.

You'd know me if you knew them
- the things I loved
from afar

the roads I had not to choose,
the people I had to
leave behind.

Yes, you would.

Draw the line and
I won't cross it.

I'll sit this side
writing dreams
in the wind

drawing charades
on my arms
and legs.
