No Rocket Ship

You're always shooting for the stars....
But you never make it quite that far....
Because you have no rocket ship....
That you can use to take that trip....

You're always reaching for the moon....
But you won't get there anytime soon....
Because you are not an astronaut....
Even though, you pretend a lot....


You always live just on the edge....
Precariously, standing on the ledge...
Of reality and your imagination....
Never falling, from your position.

And had it been anyone else,
I might worry about their mental health.
But I know that you are just being you,
And being creative is just what you do .

You stretch my mind, to its limits,
Reaching full capacity,within just minutes
Traversing thoughts, at lightning speed,
Your mind is a drug, my addiction you feed.

And had it been anyone else,
I would seek them out some mental help.
But I know, this is just who you are,
And I hold you in the highest regard .

Mindless Dribble

You, Sir, have an active imagination,
Always making up stuff, always creating.
Believe you can just say what you wish,
And there will be no consequences.

I'm innocent I tell ya, innocent I say,
I wasn't even in Copenhagen that day.
I was right here, working my nine to five,
Just trying to make my way, through this life.

You Too

Crazy you are, you say whatever you feel....
We never know if your teasing or for real....
You leave people, shaking their heads...
They can't believe, you just said what you said.

If they only knew, what you did in real life,
They would see, that you're just living it right.
Spreading joy and laughter wherever you can,
Not caring how you look, to disingenuous men.

Doesn't mean, you don't know what real is,
Or that you live in a world, other than this.
I love the way... that you do you,
Don't ever change, whatever you do.
