The Complex Brain
To love or not to love that is the question
Do I tell him how I feel;
Do I tell him how he makes everything seem surreal?
Or do I stand back?
Close my mouth like I've been caught up in a trap
Or should I squeal?
You make life seem so unreal
This is the way you make me feel
You make life so surreal until;
Reality hits me, that you are no longer mine
And we had to say our goodbyes
It was no longer our time to shine
But forever in my heart you remain
I try to keep my feelings domain,
But I cannot resist the urge
Of how you make me feel.
You make life so unreal
Just by how you make me feel
Is this love
Or is this tragedy
When will my fairly god mother come sprout
And talk to me what all my dreams are about?
Will she give me that glass slipper or will I have to ask her?
I am always scared that my life will end in disaster
Holding on, not letting
My hope begins to show.
You saw the vulnerability in my eyes,
You saw how easily I begin to cry
So you took it further, and pretend as if it we're over
Maybe some things are better for us than we think
True love can make our hearts sink
And our souls grow bitter
And our skin turns old
We were once
So brave and bold;
And now we don't even have a place to call home
The Summer Gazebo Readings are held each Monday evening at 7pm in June, July & August. Each evening 4-5 authors and poets share their work from our Gazebo on Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, NY. SGR is produced by the Kiwanis Club of Oceanside. Funds raised through sponsorships help send underprivileged kids to Kamp Kiwanis each summer. This summer marks our 7th season!
