Vanity

I was just thinking about seeing if I can get the pieces that I have posted on this blog published. A friend suggested that I should self publish. Then the thought crossed my mind, is a vane thing to do?

I know this is a one maybe two person blog, but please wiegh in with your thoughts. I would love to read to see what you think

Straight to the River

I loved too soon
She loved too late
In the end I gave up hope
And she found hope
Living the tangent lives

I stood on the mountain top
Ready to conquer the doubters
She huddled on the ground
Seeking sanctuary from others
Leaving both of us empty

I am crazy far more than sane
She is mad from the pain
My delusion that we could cross the plane
Her reluctance to board the ship
We are doomed by our own insanity


We are headed straight to the river
To wash away the past and present
We are chained to what of should have been
Straight to the river, straight to the river
To be baptized into a new light of sanity
Straight to the river to set our ships free


We stand washed and walk to the shore
Soaked in redemption of clarity
I climb the mountains leaving her
As she heads to the open fields as
I loved too soon and she loved too late


We are headed straight to the river
To wash away the past and present
We are chained to what of should have been
Straight to the river, straight to the river
To be baptized into a new light of sanity
Straight to the river to set our ships free

Straight to the river, straight to the river
Straight to the river, straight to the river
