the dogwood tree has a rich history
it's one of notoriety and fame
bleach hallucenations insectide paint
it's pretty clear we'll always be the same
skin tight skin that breathes you back
canada dry carpet and hairpins
litter the floor with tinsel and such
it's understandable, life without friends
You can be christ for all they care
you can crucify yourself on a gate
gallows of formalities maybe i'll fall
they are inexperienced in hate
maybe we'll break out of the coldness
just you and me will be left sane
but really it's not worth the effort
no one gets very far on Hikes Lane

Girl you lost me on this one. I read it 3 times. This must be where you live. And friends are not caring, am I getting this right. It don't matter what you do, you never get to far? Am I close here? Sorry, it's probably me, I am tired.

whtdove- i don't think it's supposed to make too much sense... no one is really going to read it anyways. i don't live on hikes lane, but i live near it and my town is the tarpit of the human race. it's just describing a dirty little place with no one to care about you and nothing to really help you out. i don't know, i didn't want to write a bad poem, i just wrote everything about my town that popped into my head
sorry

Roxane,
The good paint is there
But the abstract makes it unclear.

Roxane, don't be sorry friend! That is good that you're putting it down. I know one thing in your town that is helping you. Your COMPUTER! It helps you to reach others and vise versa, I for one am glad you have one, otherwise I would not have met you!
