Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

I can be funny

I can be funny

 

I used to sleep with

a dictionary under

my pillow, but she could not

breathe, so she left me for a

thesaurus of course.

insanity plea

insanity plea

 

I stand, and stare hands unaware

of blood that’s not my own,

I smile and scream while in a dream

what mischief have I sown?

 

I wish I knew which lie is true

reality’s so blurred

the dead don’t tell, they said it well,

at least that’s what I’ve heard.

 

I’ll know in time, although my crime

will show that I’m insane,

I bet I’ll live, forget, forgive,

pretend it’s all a game.

of creeks and streams

 

I wish

I lived nearer

to what I understand,

that which I’ll always need to hear,

and touch.
