Grounded Vacation

Come soak your toes with me
In this lazy river babbling,
While we laze about chatting,
Soaking up the Sun's sweet rays.

We grow green in each other's shade.
Our twisted roots, intertwined,
Curling up cozy by a spot of water
With just enough soil in the sand.

Oh! You and me honey nectar.
Oh, you and me with our little leaves,
Sweet on each other's sugar
Baked in enough breath and sun.

Life isn't just some jigsaw
Of a puzzle, waiting to be
Put together one rainy day.
It's more than that.

A mosaic of fragments
From other lives and works.
Falling in place after
One helluva storm.

Crafted with a little bit of care
And a whole lot of chaos. 
My brain shattered
On a hardwood floor,
I stop for a moment
To gather my thoughts

And hold each shard up
To the window pane
To let the light refract
Through, and thoroughly
See each chipped angle.

Taking such a hard hit last night,
You're still seeing stars in the daytime.
Spun around and woozy,
You're landlocked and seasick
On this waterbed, and not one
Piece of the fare kept in the hull
Of your bodily vessel.
So hoist the sails and set anchor,
You're gonna be stuck at port
A while longer.

I knew a girl who
Moves like Japanese baseball
---The metaphors are intact
But it's so damn fast,
And I can't keep track
Of the plays made past.
The rules are a little different,
But you get the gist.

Santa Claus is not real.
There's no bunny with a basket.
No fairy with a pouch full of quarters and teeth.
And the only things going bump in the dark
Are your parents fucking in the next room.
