Sometimes I just can't
find a way to breathe I can't
think of other things.

Up the Down Escalator...

Why am I always
        running up the down escalator
Crossing the runway
Wrong way
On a One Way?

Why does it always
        feel like I'm on the freight elevator
Going to the basement
Not sent,
But still I went.

I wander down blindly
       down the outer corridor
Looking for the right doorway
Can't stay
'Cause I can't pay.

Running in circles, up and down, round and round
I'm screaming for help,
But not making a sound.

Writer's Block

Sleeping in the night
Dreaming in my bed
Stories, songs and poems
Are racing through my head.

Standing in the shower
My mind is filled with rhyme
But like the water I dry off
The words get left behind.

Sitting at the beach
Basking in the sun
A million things I want to write
Yet now I'm finding none.

Waiting at my keyboard
