high

Posted: 07/24/2011 in house of change, house of love, house of music

high

i got high

high up on the bridge and the

water far below

away beneath my shoes

kept moving

empty

deep and blue…

i thought about

when i thought that

falling was just a way of getting

high

i got high

oh every time i was with you

so now baby it’s just a long way

a long fall

to the water below my shoes

but i can’t dance

can’t go with you

where it’s so endlessly

empty,

just empty

deep and blue.

    I’m hearing the deep blue blues in this one!

    Blues, what do you want with me? The circular phrases are hypnotic, and they say that after awhile, the distance starts calling you down. I think took a step and I fell into this one.

    definitely the deep blue blues…. impossible to read ~ it must be sung with a blues guitar or saxaphone the only accompaniment. i get high on your words. mmm hmmm…..

    “The deep blue” seems to move on multiple levels in this poem. Mesmerizing!

    AKA Tom Eliot

    Love the tone of this poem – icy and removed – a trance induced beckoning from some where other than here.

    I really like your style.

  8. What a beautiful poem. Highs and lows dance across my mind when reading this.

  9. Reflections says:

    Love the dance of your words, yet the depth is startling. Beautiful poetry!

    Yes, this is hypnotic!
