Hard Chair

from Joey - Monday, May 09, 2005
accessed 1120 times

Here is a little something I wrote while sitting out on the back verandah in Brisbane Australia. There are 4 comfy chairs and 4 hard chairs, needless to say there were 5 of us!

I'm as grateful for the hard chair and it's gift of insiration for this piece as I am for the nasty life I was born into that has now in retrospect presented me with so many tools I can use in life to help me through any situation thrown my way! Hope you like it.....

Well I'm sitting on a hard chair

And I'm thinking of a day

When the air around me's thinner

And the warmth makes me stay.

All this while I'm wishing

That a heart like yours was here

Sitting right beside me

Comfortable and fair.

The day, Oh the day,

Is getting older, never younger.

The sounds all around me

Blase a colour thru my sky

And the glimmer of a candle

Beckons me goodnight,

But I'll stay.

I want to stay.

Here with my thoughts,

Thoughts turn to play,

With the walls as they grow thicker,

Keeping me inside.

Around me's only reality,

And I'm on the other side,

But I'll stay

While they sway

In and out like the waves.

As they crash down all around me

And I'm forced into a stare

With eyes I cannot see yet

But shimmer with a glare.

Here I'm yours

You have me now

While I pour my heart out.

Of a glass without a bottom

Sitting on a table with no legs

And all this while I'm wishin'

You were here with me instead

But I stumble

And stagger

Into a train

Carrying me into tomorrow.

My gift to you my brothers and sisters, Joey

Very fluid poem...did you say you were a writer, Joey? This one would be very easy to put to a David-Grey-esque song because of its smooth flow and simple rhythm. In fact it really does remind me of David Grey, or maybe Jack Johnson. Very nice.

Nooooooo, please anything but David Grey.If we must be twee then let's try a Belle and Sebastian record. Not to attack your poem Joey, it goes quite nicely with a bit of Earl Grey.(reply to this comment

Thank you miss. If you didn't get my email to you, reply to this comment and I'll do it again!

A song it is indeed. If anything comes of my songs I'll post a link to my web site so you can listen to them. Singing and writing are my favourite forms of expression. Music to me communicates the many things that can't be put into words and makes us feel ok about them for a while!(reply to this comment
