m e s s i l o v e

my mind is a
mess –
colours splash
all over
deep purples
blues
and greens
splattered
with hot
yellows
oranges
and reds
sprayed with
a concoction
of horrific neon
pastels
– and I love
it; I would never
change it.

my brain is
painted like a
Jackson Pollock
imitation – beautiful
in its own right,
but can it
live up to an original?
my ear drums are
dripping with
the nectar
of ten thousand beats
the molasses of
twelve notes
and the innervisions
of wonderful
influences
but I love it;
I could never
change it.

I am
living
the life
only I can live –
the life that
is the dream
I am
dreaming right
now –
because only
I will live
this life
and I will only
live this life once –
and I love
it; I should never
change it.
