There's a circus on my back,
    and a monkey leading the show.

I could try to get my life on track,
   but I'd really like to go.

Put hands on mouse and keyboard
    to turn on this fog machine.
Filled my mind with cloudy vapor
  and now I cannot see.

Wet. sand. pours. from. my. heart.
. . . .
into. a. castle. of. doomed. ambitions.
. . .
Too-quicksand. counts. each. beat.,.
. .
'til. the. terminal. grain.
.
leaves the partial life
         
unfinished
The eager mind's heart races too fast.

the clocks are rising up in rebellion
and nothing can stop them
quick! we have to sleep before it's too late

The untended **** can only grow
'til the roots take to stone
and it soon becomes known

Should a tug be its fate,
then a hole must be filled
but the stone won't forget
even if the garden will.
In response to PAX's "****":
****
I was left hanging
in your garden heart
yet I was only a ****
who never got your
attention.

The wilting rose
in its heart only grows.
Lest the final petal falls,
due return? who knows..
in response to Marsha's "garden":

in a garden
filled with a thousand beautiful roses,
I am the wilting one.

May
love find you, and
fear flee your name.
sadness steel you, and
courage bring you fame.

Let
love **** you, and
fear keep you sane.
sadness heal you, and
courage bring you pain.

Let be, all that may,
and suffer on another day.
Don't stop until you're finished
