Poem -

Water Under the bridge

Water Under the bridge

I've been drinking and a smoking
And a playing the Blues
Dancing in the Moonlight 
In my red suede shoes

Thoughts of you come at me like a loaded gun 
Arrows to my heart tell me it's time to run

You're like a loaded gun
Baby I just had to run

I tell myself it's water
Flowing like a river to the deep blue sea
And I tell myself it's all you and me will ever be
Water under the bridge
Of destiny

You're so crazy that you're scary 
My time with you was like a visit to a black hole
Always wondered whether I would make it out whole

You're an all in Black son of a bitch
Conceived by the Devil on a Full Moon
Youre the son of a Banshee Witch
Ain't dancing with the Devil mighty rich?

You're like a loaded gun 
Baby I just had to run

I tell myself it's water
Flowing like a river to the deep blue sea
And I tell myself it's all you and me will ever be
Water under the bridge
Of destiny 

I talk with my Tarot cards
And try to deny
The cards that try to tell to me
It all wasn't a lie

I bury all my memories so deeply away
That even my thoughts can't come out to play
I walk down the streets with my head held high
My mask looks so perfect
Can't tell I'm walking a lie

You're like a loaded gun 
Baby I just had to run

I tell myself it's water
Flowing like a river to the deep blue sea 
And I tell myself that's all you and me will ever be
Water under the bridge 
Of destiny

So here I am a walking by the shoreline 
All alone
I don't even call you on the telephone

I'm still drinking and a smoking 
And a playing the Blues
Dancing by the Moonlight In my red suede shoes

Time it trickles slowly
My heart beats the Blues 
I'm running through the river
In my red suede shoes

Footprints in the sand are so easy to erase
But footprints on the heart linger for days and days

You're like a loaded gun
Baby I just had to run

I tell myself it's water 
Flowing like a river to the deep blue sea 
And I tell myself it's all you and me will ever be
Water under the bridge 
Of destiny.

Love it DD. I can tell it's written as a song. A song I'd like to hear played.

Gorgeous song, Double D! 
Please put out an album, so I can buy a copy. 
I love your sadness(sorry), but sad songs are my downfall. 

You are a wonderful writer! 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew yes melancholy bedevils me at times.  There's beauty in the Darkness as exemplified by Leonard Cohen (R.I.P)

Absolutely true, D's. You should see my wall in my office, it's completely filled with full lyrics, and verses of sad songs. An homage to sadness, because life is ultimately such. 
You're cool. 

Matthew.
