I'm itchin' for a taste,
Can't keep my mind off the beast.
I get a hit from the caress of your lips.
I get my fix for less than Smack or Cocaine.
It's faster than speed....trippier than LSD. More
Than Wolfe's Kool-Aid Acid Test
All Mine, my drug!
Your touch makes me shiver...to look at you makes me
Can't keep my mind off you, Babe.....Can't Keep my mind off the Beast
Cause I'm itchin' for a taste of your love....
I Talked to a Friend Today
He said nu uh
I said I did
He asked me if I meant it
I said I did
He asked me what it felt like
I told him Electric
He asked how much it cost
I told him Less than a Penny, but more than a lifetime
He said nothing in life is free
I said If you look in the right place it is.
I sat with the stars tonight
They told me their secrets.
The thoughts no one has had...
The mysteries left unsolved...
They told me they loved me.
They filled my head with lies.
I sat with the Buddha and he said,
"if you speak and act with a polluted mind,
Suffering will follow you, as the wheels
Follow the footsteps of the Ox,
If you speak and act with a pure mind,
Happiness will follow you, as a shadow clings to a form."
I walked away satisfied, but empty.
I went and sat with Rilke and
He gave me food and drink.
He said, "One earthly thing
Truly experienced is enough
For a lifetime."
I thought and moved onward.
I stood at the temple steps
Afraid to walk up when a man
Approached me with a novelty T-shirt
That read, " A painting of a rice cake
Does not satisfy hunger."
I climbed the mountainous steps,
Burnt by the thoughts in my mind.
Thinking, "Must it be? It must be."
I nearly fainted saying," I can't go on,
You must go on, I'll go on." As Beckett.
Thinking that this is the answer to the age old question
"When the many are reduced to one,
To what is the one reduced?"
I reached the throne and there sat a man whose
Crown and Robes were drenched in Blood
He said, "Lift the stone and you will find Me:
Cleave the wood and I am there."
I walked with GOD in the fields of eternity
"Consider the lillies of the field," He told me.
"How they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;
And Yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all
His glory was not arrayed like one of these."
And I found peace in the House of the Father.
