This is what’s on my mind?
What’s taking space
While I can’t find peace
Or thankfulness?
This is some kind of mess
Probably of my own making
Never mind what isn’t breaking
Isn’t hearts and isn’t shards
Isn’t what makes life so hard
It’s not something I want to do
Going o’er old ground with you
Dragging down the moon and stars
From long ago when they were ours
To sit under and hope
That what we had was something else.
But somehow all along we knew
That what it was just wouldn’t do
And so we wrapped it up in lies
Set it to sleep in its disguise
And wished on all the stars and wine
Someway somehow there’d come a time
When things were back the way before
The chance came knocking at our door
And we took it


With apologies to Sara Bareilles and her fabulous song, which got into my head and tangled with some things already going on in there.

    Lizzi poems (Yes, I know that’s a noun, but I’ll make it a verb if I want to, so there, grammar police.) a sadness.
