THE LOVESONG OF J. EUGENE HEDRINGTON
“Though they go mad they shall be sane...
Though lovers be lost love shall not” -Dylan Thomas
HE: I won’t apologize for looking long m’lady’s eyes
SHE: Well don’t lay blame for looks away from all them eye’s tryin’ to say
THEM: Some Earthlings can not handle all the love that’s locked inside
While seeking steps up strong cuz life’s not long enough to waste sweet precious time
HE: Words are but persuasion. On occasion when I’ve held you near...
SHE: I’ve sensed unconsciously we diggin’ we but doubt fills me with fear
THEM: In the mirror I’m a monster overcome all obstacles
In the real word I’m a lobster scuttling along with claws
HE: Jump off the aft into the deep
SHE: For a minnow we will seek
THEM: Within the creep dark ocean deep
HE: Traipse onto these empty pages unsure but boldy leave past behind
SHE: Yes I guess this feels familiar--still sailing uncharted waters now
THEM: I’m not feeling accurate--is this really where I’m at?
HE: I find it hard believing that the sight of me don’t set you reeling
SHE: It volleys back and forth across my mind front sideways and from behind
THEM: Temporarily psychotic--you won’t mind once you got it
Let me be your fantasy--what do you want me to be?
HE: Look out across your starboard bow
SHE: My ship has run aground
HE: Your captain’s going down
HE: Charge into a brand new chapter--can we fill the page with laughter now?
SHE: Yes I guess you’ll call me lover--every time it’s for forever, aber nein
THEM: I’m finally feeling accurate--familiar flood of old regret. Regrets.
“Oed’ und leer das Meer.”
