Poems

Love
Did you ever ride your, bike, to school?
Ever feel like you’re not so cool?
Ever find yourself sitting on-the-outside,
Heart pounding so hard you thought you’d die,

Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,

Walkin’ halls a zombie, lost unto the masses,
Staring at the pretty girls, -sittin’ in the classes,
Thinking to yourself all the many reasons why,
They’d find happiness with some other guy.

Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,

Life moves so fast, -zips right through,
If you never make a move it’ll pass by you,
Never ask her out, find your heart all full of sighs,
LSD, drunken brawls, hanging with the guys…

Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,

Closer to our end I saw her so unhappy,
She came right up, -how hard she slapped me!

“What the Hell? What the ****? What’s the reason why?”
“Why did you wait so long…leave me to that other guy?”

I was young, foolish, headstrong, stupid,
Too afraid and too cool to listen to cupid,
Girl you know you still…make my heart sigh?
Imma a lot calmer now, Imma be your guy.

Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
*Buppa-dip erup-rup, buppa dip er-up,
You know Eight Owl City,
                                           -ain’t where I’m from?

You know the past isn’t pretty,
                                                -why are you dwelling there son?

You know every thought’s a lifetime,
                                                       ­    -of hands wringing, hands wrung?

Forget the past, see the future now,
                                                        -Dip­-dap-a-looma lung.

Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,
Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,

Storm on the horizon,
                                   -thunder in the air,

Crack-O-lightning split the skies now,
                                                            ­ -ignore the clouds their always there…

You know Eight Owl City,
                                         -is just a place to hide your mind?

Life is hard, it ain’t pretty,
                                          -lost in a place out of time.

Get out your head or you’ll eat yourself,
                                                       ­          -consumed by paranoia, -rage!

Forget the past; see your future now,
                                                            ­-all you do in life is age.

Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
Hands wringing, hands wrung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,
Hear me now as it’s sung,
Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,

Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,
Dip-dap-a-looma lung,
A dip-dap-a-looma lung,
"Eight Owl City," was the original Sumerian name for Heliopolis in Egypt.

I like to take a dip in the poetry well
when my life seems to be dry
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
when I question why
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
when I lost the courage to try something new
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
when I need encouragement then I get it from you
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
to ease some anxiety
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
let my emotions swell
I take to take a dip in the poetry well
while holding paper and a pen
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
where inspiration never ends
I like to take a dip in the poetry well
where I can gather with my friends
This is for All My Hello Poetry Friends!!!!
Thank You so much for your friendship and encouragement!!!
