Drunk on Time (day 150)

Is it possible to be drunk on time?

6am and I can’t even rhyme

Decisions that sound like a shooting star

I wish I could always know where you are

 

Counting dreams like hopscotch memories

I gasp as I wake up, tears like energy

I run on saltwater, it tangles the air

and makes it look like you could care

 

Is it possible to be drunk on time?

6am and I can’t even rhyme

Decisions that sound like a shooting star

I wish I could always know where you are

 

I’m a liar but I don’t want to be this kind

Pendulum, pendulum, I could stumble blind

Years flicker by wrapped in your eyes

I’d rather be grounded than stuck in the skies

 

Is it possible to be drunk on time?

6am and I want to call you mine

Decisions that sound like a shooting star

I wish I could always know where you are

 

Pendulum, pendulum, can we stay right here

I don’t want this magic to disappear

Pendulum, pendulum, where do you keep

the parallel worlds where we never fall asleep

If you say this poem and walk

If you say this poem and walk in circles (hand over heart) your true love appears. Really a good write! I like the idea of never sleeping but only as long as I have a good book.

"...Years flicker by wrapped in your eyes..." literally or metaphorically, nice image. Makes me go: Hmmmm... then Ahhhhh... then Yeeeeeeeeaaaahhhhh... allets
