Two Minds. Or Many.

I meant to love you
But got distracted by myself
And then the monkeys came along
And we just had to watch them play
By then we had both forgotten about love
And misery
And melancholy
And togetherness
And loneliness
I meant to tell you
You meant the world to me
But the world means so little
I took one day at a time
And tried years at a go
And nothing changed
We stand still like clowns at a circus
The last show over
The people gone
The pretty horses smoking rings of sawdust
The lights might have faded
But the stars still shine
Leave me be
I might get along with ghosts
But I don't want to
