Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


20 May 2014



I’m certifiable,

always doing the same things,

hoping for different results.

Wrong person, wrong time,

I have a litany of excuses,

but the outcome is

always the same.


I’m mad, insane …

I’ve lost touch with reality,

disbelieving what I see,

deluded by what I want to hear,

nothing’s real,

it’s just a game

I never win.


So, lock me up,

throw away the key,

I may be certifiable,

but love is crazy.

  1. If anything can make us crazy, it’s Love! 🙂

  2. I was wondering where this was headed and related to your words, as well, Michael. Then I read the last line; what a twist and great ending! 🙂
