Random Poem:

dreaming of you
cadmium

on a ledge over niagara,
 1
i waited till i couldn't do it --
 2
jumping off, when i should
 3
have just known -- well,
 4
 
 
you're not the one, not the single
 5
thing to tingle -- never was only,
 6
one,
 7
when i'm lonely... lots
 8
where you came from.
 9
 
 
how i lie,
 10
just want to die,
 11
it's only you.
 12
 
 
from a bridge, next to frisco,
 13
thought about the life in disco --
 14
saw yourself dressed dressed up in crisco:
 15
could i love you in that way...?
 16
 
 
how i know,
 17
just want to go on,
 18
loving you as you.
 19
 
 
suppose the marriage was legal,
 20
(but, that's just the sequel to ozzie and harriet's
 21
mindless routine --)
 22
people do what they do,
 23
they smoke and they... do it
 24
with no thought at all,
 25
of the why and the how.
 26
 
 
on a cliff over moscow,
 27
or a den in peking --
 28
what's the use of concluding,
 29
if we've never done that thing?
 30
 
 
got to know what i need;
 31
just want to go on,
 32
dreaming of you.
