Walking My Thoughts (day 53)

I’ve slipped, I’m stuck in a mystery

If only I could get out of my head

Her hand’s too slick to save me now

In a mudslide I’ll drown instead

 

Walking my vicious thoughts

down the river, down the road

Walking my bitingly honest demon

and I don’t know where to go

 

She’s fallen, tugs at my shoelaces

with a heavy heart, a husky voice

But I can’t shoulder my thoughts

when they force me to make a choice

 

Walking my vicious thoughts

down the river, down the road

Walking my bitingly honest demon

and I don’t know where to go

 

I need to reclaim my head

I walk until I can see change

Until my breath’s a little softer

and my thoughts aren’t so estranged

 

Walking my vicious thoughts

down the river, down the road

Walking my bitingly honest demon

so now I know where to go

 

Someday I’ll learn to walk on water

and drag my thoughts along,

maybe even embrace them

like another wanting song
