Open the windows of your shuttered mind

to the unencumbered breeze of fresh thought

Let it gently spread; swirling through half-opened

doors into darkened corners to remove

 the stale, stagnant, settled dust of the past

 allowing for very good use of the space

A muse amuses

sometimes uses

even abuses

an open mind

But she’s most unkind

leaving one in a bind

when off she goes

We must face the woes

all up in throes

our hearts attacked

thoughts gutted and hacked

We admit we need her as we beg her to come back

Round, round, round; outside, then in

so this revolving life does spin

all to the tunes of their coming in

Filling up, filling in

every space inside my head

until it weighs a lot like lead

mixed up with a bit of dread

from things said, to the things unsaid

just never what you had in mind

though like a love-lost fool, you’d pined

for the times before, left behind

when everyone seemed more of one kind

Round, round, round; inside, then away

leaving you sad-songed from the fray

Through the door to find the way

a bit dizzy, you pick up the day

What’s in your head

No wonder it aches

Your pillow can’t hold it

and shoulders do break

Clear your mind (he says)

There’s erasers, bulldozers, explosions

Speculate on the method, since

some could cause a bit of erosion

Once you’ve got it figured out

you can then, go on to bed

where you will have made room for

the lovely, buried dreams, still

waiting inside your head

It’s hard to let go of someone

of course, letting go means

you thought that, once

you held them near

If your jumbled mind is all-a-clutter

retrieve your heart’s shards from the dark gutter

Speak over the chaos with no hint of a stutter

 so the wings of your soul can begin to flutter

Then wait for the wisp of a gentle breeze

Let it lift your spirit from its knees

to twirl in dance as it sets free

a mended heart; a mind at ease

There’s a lot that

I don’t understand and

try as I might, my mind

never gets the upper hand

Too much time is spent

on trying to figure out

how to stand taller than

those shadows of all my doubts

I just wish everything

could be clear and clean

free from sorrow, void of pain

love, being all it would ever mean
