Up A Lonely Ladder

Daydreaming, wishing for you
world turning, words are burning
stuck to the page like glue

Every cold, dark night that you don't see
how my heart could be
the skeleton key
open up all your doors, empty all your drawers
see what love has in store
for you
but oh every cold, dark night that you don't see
oh I go
up a lonely ladder to the moon
and blue is the solace in my tune

Nightswimming, thinking of you
darkness falls, emptiness calls
and tells me you've been untrue

Every dreary rainy day that you're gone
how can my soul go on
a silly little song
that's all this ever was, and all it ever does
is crumble into dust
but you
oh I bet you didn't even hear a thing, did you
guess I'll go
up a lonely ladder to my room
and blue is the safety of my womb

Stone cold crazy
Los Angeles is hazy, sick and it's lazy
but the sunshine strips away all that decays
in the middle of a blue-green sea
see to the middle, the center of what's inside me
up a lonely ladder, the Drifters singing 'Up On The Roof'
down a broken staircase, the pain is 100 proof
sparks struck on the moment of thinking of you
world keeps on turning, the words are burning
and I'm stuck to the page just like glue

Daydreaming, wishing for you
words turning, worlds are burning
and I think of you
stuck like glue
oh I go
up a lonely ladder to the moon
up a lonely ladder to my room
yeah blue is the essence
casing effervescence in my womb
and blue is solace
blue is the safety
in your tune

A very good piece of poetry filled with images, dreams and even some really good songs!

One ladle serves the soup that feeds the mouths of the many.

this plays out like a sad song, full of emotion with no destination... nicely written

You come up with the best lines and string your words together like none other.

Did I ever tell you how much I love reading your poetry?

You know, I just realized this is the second time I posted this one. Getting forgetful in my old (not really, I'm only 37) age. Sorry for that. Hope you all didn't mind the repetition. Thanks for the comments regardless.
