In The Haze

I want to have – an animated tattoo
of a scorpion – that sits on my shoulder
and it moves around – daring people to touch it
and I’ll tell them that I can hear it’s thoughts
These are the things that run through my head
When I try to fall asleep
and I know there’s weirder things waiting for me
if i go too deep

There are sharp shards
in the colorswirl maze
where the shattered light
is competing for your gaze
…before it fades in the haze…

I want to draw you – to the edge of my brain
but words can’t tell – what you’re gonna see there
the drifts of meaning – won’t translate my hope
that the seeds of intention will find fertile ground
these are the things that run through my brain
when I try to fall asleep
They flash in succession just waiting for me
I wonder which thoughts i can keep

There are black dots
in the colorswirl maze
where the explosions of light
go to rest after they graze
…before they fade in the haze…
