One For The Road

In the wake of my own flood
where these words
have dripped from my blood
scripted from a heart
that I tried to jumpstart,
well that was just the first part.
In light of all this
there is something I found
it is in a moment of silence
when the story
begins to make
all the more sense.
It is in this
coming of age
that has opened up
the parts of me
I could never see
Yet always sitting there
hidden behind a stage
up a flight of beaten stairs
awaits an inner sage.
It was in time
that I learned
what it meant
for a word to rhyme
and hang it out to dry
for the world to pry
what these words are about
the ones that I
scream in a silent shout,
some tangled in rhapsody
others touched by heartfelt melody
so soon will come the day
when my words
come back to play
never left to fray.
First I must look,
look to my own mind
for what’s left of it
and the voice it carries
I must find.
What is that I have to say
will once again sing
with that something
in the me I find
along that lonesome way
But before I go
Here is one,
One more for the road.
