Sometimes Overheard & Worked Over - Poem by Leone Richardson

SOMETIMES

I wish I was somewhere else
and each time
When I am not quite myself
with that devil about to make love to me
I fear I might be too weary
not to give in.

When you cash in your round trip ticket to sheol
Can't help it
You'll never look the same again
With a landscape to haunt you
the moment you close your eyes
& images of scorching souls
tattooed forever in your mind

Sometimes
I wish I was somewhere else
But oftentimes
when I am not quite myself
before that devil can make me his lover again
I remember you know what I'm talking about
(When) I don't want to trade horror for bliss
just wish it would give me a little rest.

Someplace else
I would still be carrying my load
But somewhere
there's always one like you around
When I feel this grip tear open wounds
I remember you share with me all that I've found.
Kindred souls chime to a similar tune.

When you cash your round ticket to sheol
Can't help it
You'll never look the same again
With a landscape to haunt you
the moment you close your eyes
& images of scorching souls
tattooed forever in your mind
