LOOK SHARP!


LOOK SHARP! S.JENSEN (C)2019

STRANGE HOW WE THINK WE CAN LET THE PAST LEAVE US WHEN IT SUDDENLY POPS BACK IN WITH A FEW WORDS AND THEN WE HAVE TO WORK THROUGH THE PAIN AGAIN

ITS NOT AS BAD NOW THAT SHOWS I HAVE TRULY RECOVERED FROM IT ALL

SHE SAID ON THE PHONE I KNOW WHAT HE MEANT TO HER AND SAID I AM SORRY TO TELL YOU BUT HE HAD A HEART ATTACK AND PASSED ON AND HOW ARE THE GIRLS

I SAID THANKS AND I HAVEN'T SEEN THEM IN A LONG TIME THEN CLICK THE CALL ENDS

I COULD TELL ROUGHNESS STILL EXISTED

TOOK ME A FEW HOURS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HECK THAT REALLY WAS ABOUT THEN IT DAWNED OH!

HMMM! ONE KID WOULD BE 23 YRS OLD NOW THE OTHER OH SHE WOULD BE BECOMING A TEENAGER SIGH!

A LIFETIME AGO NINE YEARS AGO NOW

TIME FLIES BYE BYE DEAR I HAVE LET IT ALL GO AND I AM MUCH BETTER FOR IT

BEEN READY TO MOVE ON AND FIND THE PERSON TO TAKE THAT SPOT FOREVER AND TREAT ME LIKE I DESERVE

YET STILL ITS HARD TO DO THAT

WHEN THE ONE IN YOUR HEART IS THERE AND ITS NOT HER ITS ANOTHER IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE

AND YET THAT IS NOW ON THE GOLDEN LIST

I FIGHT FOR MY LIFE AGAIN IN A NEW BUT DIFFERENT WAY ITS ALWAYS SOMETHING PLAYING AND PULLING ON THAT SIX FOOT DOOR

AND I KEEP SAYING NO REAPER GO AWAY COME BACK ANOTHER DAY I AM NOT READY YET

GOT THINGS TO DO AND LOVE TO FIND AND HOLD ON TO AND YOU CAN'T HAVE ME YET

IN BETWEEN I SIT HERE AND PAINT MY DAY AWAY CREATING

IN THAT SPACE WHERE ALL I CAN DO IS WAIT WAIT WAIT

FOR WHEN I LET THE DOOR OPEN THE RAIN ALWAYS POURS AND THEN THE PAIN LEAVES WITH IT

WRAP ANOTHER BEAD WITH THE GOLD THREAD

OH MAKE ANOTHER MARK ON THE PAGE

NO MORE WINE TO SIP BETWEEN THESE LIPS AND THE DROPS OF RAIN FADE IN THE FOG OF THE DISTANCE

MY TRAGEDY FLOWS LIKE WATER DOWN THAT DRAIN

AND HERE I AM STILL SITTING HERE ALL BY MYSELF.

SO MY DEAR ANGEL WILL YOU COME SAVE ME FROM THIS OH NO NOT YET OK THEN I DO SOME MORE PAINTING...

IT WILL COME ONE DAY AND I WON'T RUSH IT CUS I KINDA LIKE IT HERE...

LOOK SHARP AS THE TABLES TURN AND THE SPEAKERS POUND AND THE LEFT GOES RIGHT AND RIGHT GOES LEFT

AND WE ARE STILL HERE!
