Walking On A Straight Line
Oct 2018

I am sorry that I said that I am sorry
So so many times
You must forgive me as I wander
On a path that is a circle
In my mind.
I could tell you that I’m walking on a straight line
As I always planned
It never matters where I go because I always end up
Just where I began

Walking on a straight line
The saddest soul you’ll ever meet
Walking on a straight line
Guess I’ll just repeat

I have used up all my ink in writing novels of my wrongs and my regrets
This is helpful to remind me and to never allow me to forget
If I let go what would i do with all these hidden heavy bags of shame?
They are my first place trophies to show you that I can be the winner of this game

Walking on a straight line
Sparked a flame so blue it burns
Walking on a straight line
It’s okay, i’ll never learn

Walking on a straight line
I could leave the past behind
Walking on a straight line
I roll the tape and I rewind


I could tell you that I’m walking on a straight line quickly as I can
It never matters where I go because I always end up just where I began
