When a boy thinks of a girl

his cheeks don't go red,
nor do his pupils dilate
but his heart beats as fast
as a horse's gallop in race

His lips strongly tremble
in the midst of conversation
his legs that won't settle
due to headstrong infatuation

her beauty overwhelms him
her cold hand warms his heart
her gaze,  like Medusa's
a romantic work of art

his thoughts full of appreciation
for whatever form she may have
a wonderful mem'ry,  imagination
a thought that can't be grasped

his thoughts he can't express
his mouth he cannot open
his words he can't confess
but his heart, ť was always broken

but all this is not really
'bout when a boy thinks of a girl
because in these words you can tell
that he always has loved her.
does the girl think of the boy?
We've all got mental problems,
Some of us hide them better.
How about that weather?

Tripping the syntax,
And I'm having difficulty
discerning my sanity right now.

There's a voice in the wind
at the throat of the world.
The sacrificial alter will hear me roar.

I'm on a duel-carriageway to crazy,
And the horses gallop onward.

Strange tidings through car doors,
Soft footfall on sand-torn shores.

Want to know whats wrong with the earth?
More violence, less hair,
And people don't hang around beaches anymore.
Betrayal stirs.
You untamed,
slip through my hands,
like the Sahara sands,
you untamed like the ever growing fields of green,
you,
not,
the,
same,
as different as the untamed tides of the moon's rise!
Crashing in to the sands of the home to you roam,
Untamed like the soft whispering spirits of the wind,
through,
the,
air,
untamed,
like the gallop of a stallion,
free,
Your heart wild,
untamed,
your,
heart,
untamed,
the way that you look at me,
untamed you see,
can I tame you now,
your,
love,
untamed,
by,
those,
who,
can,
not,
see,
who you really are,
to,
me,
your heart like the ever growing glades,
you,
untamed...
