Dimensions I Can't Control

Maybe someday I will be more than love
And just memories
Maybe someday roses will be more than lovable
And just memories

Your senses failing and my tension's rising
Fading memories are taking over
And you're losing control

Maybe someday this will be more than nightmare
And just memories
Maybe someday you will be more than nightmarish
And just memories

Your heart's failing and my mind's breaking
Remorseful memories are taking over
And you're losing control

Maybe someday voices will be more than adorable
And just memories
Maybe someday memories will be more than beautiful
And still just be memories

Your thoughts are moving and my effort's losing
Your mind is beyond my reach in a dimension
A dimension that I can't control…

Maybe I don't want to control
And just fight it
Maybe I don't want to control
And just beat it

Maybe I just want to save you
From the memories
Maybe I just want to free you
From the memories

Your back in control for the 24 seconds of your life
You break out of fear for the 24 seconds of your life
Your voices communicate meaningful words
'I Miss You'
And your mind is taken over again

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
