NYC stories (part 2)




part two



ah, but like an old song said, and all I have to do is dream...

and between falling in love with teenage rock stars and saving wayward kids from lives of decadence and abuse, I pretend to be a folk hero singing protest songs on street corners for free... wait, here's a few verses coming along now..

it's not about bombs bursting in air
or any sort of macho manhood trip
we don't need to burn a flag to prove anything
they mock themselves enough as it is

any fool can see the greed behind their actions
any idiot can lead the blind to hell
they've all traded their passions for fashions
cuz they've run out of dreams to sell

but maybe there's an answer in the question
is there still hope for love in your eyes?
the truth seems to give many indigestion
because for too long they've only swallowed lies

so tell me you understand
by taking my hand
and show me you comprehend
by being a friend

and if a spark of love ignites
let it last for endless nights
but most of all let us respect each other
for we will always be sister and brother

and if enough of us remember not to forget
there may be hope for us humans yet



all ego tripping and self-mockery aside, you should see me when I really get started...

but enough seriousness (after all, there's no one here to fall in love with in the flesh, so all I've got are words {and old songs and memories to inspire new babble and rhymes} tonight so it's play time)... the irony, however, is that I seem to be wanting to fall in love with a revolutionary, much to my amusement... perhaps I am flashing back to Evita, or better yet, Les Miserables... and it was the best of times and it was the worst of times for a far far better thing I do than I've ever done and a far far better rest I go to than I've ever known...

paraphrasing is almost as flattering as imitation, dontcha know... and I could so die for love if it would actually make things better than they are, but heck a life is a terrible thing to waste... still, when I see eyes that beg for attention, for nurturing, for affection, for seriousness and laughter and adoration... I melt... and I've seem eyes like those a few times in this life... just this summer, in fact...

and I would give everything I own... sheesh, that's a beautiful song (playing in my head at the moment)... don't take your love for granted, people, it's a horrible way to die... did I mention that I sometimes say too much?...

passion pours out of your eyes
and a longing for love
and a playful cockiness that knows lies
are a fool's game
that you are wise enough to play when you have to
am I telling secrets
not clearly enough to identify anyone
I hear you laughing

but you stare wide eyed as if you do not know
could it be too good to be true
that someone sees beyond your song and show
and understand the real you

it may all be just another fantasy
my mind is good for doing that
but if you want to sit and talk to me
that is exactly where I am at

my shoulder is available for your head
if you want to give it a place to rest
and whatever you want most in this world
I will give helping you get it my very best

because I see something in your eyes
that rocks my world
and I feel myself melting down inside
is it a fool's game
I will spend every moment offering
any proof you need to believe
I want you to be happy
and that is reality

if you want to sit and talk to me
beside you is where I will be


and what I did for love... but it's no sacrifice at all... and I haven't even gotten started and it's time to roll over and close my eyes... there's a long weekend ahead and sleeping tonight will allow me to enjoy it much more... tomorrow night there's New Found Glory, The Early November, Cartel, and Hit the Lights at the House of Blues and then Saturday starts as early as I can get up with the 100+ bands at the 12+ hour Deland Original Music Festival and that gets interrupted by 30 Seconds to Mars, HeadAutomatica, Receiving Ends of Sirens, Cobra Starship Rock Kills Kid and more at the Hard Rock Caf in the evening, dangit, too much overlapping music and fun (unless, of course, I use my secret power to be in two places at one, but then everybody would know my secret power so I won't use it this time)...

hey, what's that?... something about real life in a semi-coherent (unobscure) paragraph?... it must be time to head off la la land... so to the fun and freeing voices of Meg and Dia I sail off toward sweet slumbers (golden, even) on the wings of hope and in dreams of love, for all and for one and for me... for surely (and even Shirley), I've said enough for tonight...

maybe
