A Sequence Of Events

Post by audiofool » Mon Jun 12, 2017 10:35 am

I lost my shirt
you took the prize
you canceled my debt
painted the bluest skies

you make me laugh
I make you recoil
a fool and his money
you are my foil

it's a thankless task
one I don't really mind
in a world of clones
you're one of a kind

I'm puzzled by events
who's pulling the strings?
reading the tea leaves
sleepwalker's running rings

anything is possible
opportunities are few
I'll convince the skeptics
truly I love you

you make me laugh
I make you ill
I make you think
someday say you will

I lost the battle
you won the war
I gave up trying
you gave even more

is it pure chance?
or just a lucky break?
for better or worse
all others to forsake

I lost my shirt
you took the prize
captured my heart
I'm lost in your eyes.

So do the "running rings" belong to the sleepwalker, or are the sleepwalkers running rings? :mrgreen:

If my measurements are correct, I think I achieve more lasting good in my sleep. :lol:

Honestly, maybe because of lack of my English ability, I'm not really sure what you're struggling for. But I see a hint at the very end as I quoted your struggle still continues. I struggle, too, to savor life to the utmost with a feeling that it may be achieved when I'm able to just let go. Thanks for sharing, audiofool.

Thanks for commenting, soular.

I think I'm saying something about the mystery of falling in love-being in love. It can seem like one has come under the control of irrational, even unconscious forces.
