Cory Fox Poems
Boys and girls, take your places It's time again, I'm sure you know To wear your happy faces Because we all love a good show
Fish Of A Different Color
Big fish and small fish Swimming here in this pond Fast fish and slow fish And now one is gone
Jagged, bitter edges hide Fragile lies about to break Transparent fools trapped inside Each to make the next's mistake
Fragments And Run-On Sentences
'I pray for you more than me Now life is never dull The two of us have worlds to see I think you're beautiful'
They tell me that they care But I know what lies beneath Once they see my nightmare They're lying through their teeth
A Box With Your Name
When Christmas grew near And the shoppers appeared Wearing their caroler's best I was blinded by lights
My Complete Opinion Of The Ocean
I wish I was an otter Skies and waves the color of jeans It fills my pants with water The ocean is really cool beans
Raindrops drumming on the car ride home No one beside me; I’m on my own Alone with my thoughts- a listless moan
Three brothers walking after dawn Found gold in a pot on their lawn Said the first, 'Let us share! ' Said the next, 'We won't dare! '
Candle In The Wind
Bewildered and frightened, I walked one night Unsure of whether to run or be still When my eyes beheld such a welcome sight- A lovely candle, glowing on a hill
I see her tears and part of me dies And pray that hope is reflected in me But the emptiness in those hazel eyes Is the only reflection I see
86'D For Life
Who’s to blame for walking by When it’s so easy not to care Beneath a mop of tangled hair Beneath a pale winter sky
No Other Life
The paths which strangers actions do condone Are surely the most natural of signs I’ve found a path that I can call my own I want to live no other life than mine
Quintet V: 'Lame'
In a one-sided war of attrition
Man will fight until his dying day
But should he just let go of ambition
The meaning of time is stripped away
Spreading my Gospel on every street,
I hear them whisper as they wave
“Just who does he assume he’ll save
While he lives on bread, but never meat?
