I am first and foremost a songwriter but from time to time I like to create poems from lines and ideas that don’t seem to want to have music put to them.
I’m not sure if it is good or not since I am not an authority on poems,but for what its worth, here’s one I did a few months ago.
It is a tad gloomy, but it is 100% honest. And besides, life can’t always be sun tans and pina coladas. Hell, it is those below zero days in the winter that makes that summer sun feel that much better.
Here’s the poem:
“Just A Little”
I die just a little when I sit in this chair
Everyday just a little cuz I know i don’t care
On the wrong side of the glass to breath the fresh air
Gaze through the window and soak in dispair
I rinse and repeat day after day
Curse all the weakness that begs me to stay
A once sunny soul in quicksand decay
How much can I take before I just walk away?
If you have any comments – like “You should just stick to songwriting” or “Hey, you might be on to something here, gimme more” – just let me know below or shoot me an email (always love to hear whats on your mind).
If not, see you this Monday when I release my new song “When The Wind Blow Softly”.
Pssst… My “One Song A Month Indefinitely” plan is in full swing which means I will be releasing new music the first Monday of every month.
Enter your name and email below because then you will be one of the very first to hear my new music (Plus I’ll send you two free songs right now).
I like your poem can’t wait to see more
Thank you Scott! That is a relief to know at least one person likes it. There’s hope! 🙂
Corey I love the poem and i would like a copy of it to hang on my wall if at all possible.. It brought tears to my eyes. You are a very inspirational guy and that is why I like your music and now your poems to.
I think it’s a great poem Corey! It is sad & gloomy but don’t we all feel that way sometimes?? I think you should write more poems & keep writing those great songs too!! 🙂
Thank you Lori, a copy to hang on your wall aye. Hmmmm… can you shoot me an email? We’ll see if we can come up with something.
Thank you Mindy, as long as I have people like all of you to write for, I will keep writing, no worries there. 🙂
The poem is really good.
Thanks Mom. I hope you’re not just saying that because your my Mom now. 🙂
Cool I used to know that feeling
