Metaphorical and reality enjoy a meal together with ironical meeting them later for drinks.

We are walking emotions trapped in skin
feelings wiggling in arteries and veins
Thoughts wrapped around bones and ligaments
70 percent water
Imagine diving
intuition your breathing apparatus
Swim down inside to find your true self

Oh enough of this authentic self blah blah
gotta feed the kids
get the washing done
find where the roof leaks
the bills are worse than ever this year

The eyes are the anchor of the soul
hold on to the rim of your iris
careful
if you were to fall
Colors never known to invade sight
The mirror would speak in a tongue of old
telling of a land
surrounded by seas not for mortal man

This beach has a lot of friggn seaweed
and the salty water stings my eyes
Sunburnt again
I bet I’ll blister as well
Why didn’t I listen to mum and slap on sunscreen
Red as a lobster I am

A heart is silly when blindfolded in love
bumping
tripping
falling over words and feelings
A mind periscope is love’s dexterity
Use it
It is Free
You were given one at birth

Treat em mean keeps em keen
I read that’s the way to go
I’ll ring only one more time tonight
Do you think my butt looks big in this?
Wonder what my love type is?

Artist's Description

I wrote this and to be clear cynicism was not my agenda.

I see the dichotomy of being human and our endeavors to live our lives in a world that has it seems to me to have more and more contradictions ..
