NOT A FANTASY

I don’t care what you think

Actually, I really kind of do

I could be crazy, could be sane

My ideas might seem wrong

Or maybe more clever than smart

But I’m naked in front of you

This is the real me, not a fantasy

I don’t have a beautiful body

And my face is rapidly aging

My smile falters more lately

And I ask “why” far too often

But I’m naked in front of you

This the real me, not a fantasy

I cry for nonexistent reasons

Look for meaning where there is none

I tend to ruin silence with song

And my youth is hiding, long gone

But I’m naked in front of you

This is the real me, not a fantasy

This is the real me

Imperfection

This is the real me

Reality

This is the real me

Not a fantasy

  1. Painting ones world… It all sings, it’s all music, it’s all poetry, love, connect and disconnect, it’s those shadows of times past, it’s those lights in life’s nature up ahead, the parabolic curves and sine waves we generate in the moment, moments, our present, So grand and so humble… Authentic .. Legitimate… Physical… You! Simply, you!
