I Must Inhale

I Must Inhale

All Words By : Stewart Alexander

ò Copyrighted 2011

Calm blue dawn arrives

With sunshine on her skin

My cenotaph writes itself

Everyday within

Taxi cabs and uniforms

Hide my sense of shame

For no-one ever loved me

Or spoke well of me in name

I breathe this morning light and dark

For I sense it to be stale

My days alone with fantasy

For that I must inhale

One purple legion follows me

From cradle to the grave

For my art my music poetry

All bleeds to make me slave

I love the girl in paperback

But that shelf is out of reach

Glass does form from heating sand

That glass one day I'll breach

Lot's of nice lines and imagery here, Stew, but I especially like,

"My cenotaph writes itselfEveryday within"

Hi Stewy,

Yep, I'm still breathing too. ;)

And your breath breathes life into your music and art works buddy.

I open my PC's Desktops to your beautiful creations every day.

Peace. :)

Stewie,

You write so well that sometimes I just get lost, because I keep staring at your avator...

Anyways, my favorite line was

I love the girl in paperback

But that shelf is out of reach

But wait, I'm not on a book :P I really like the title and underlying theme of having to inhale what you despise, because it's life. This would make a great song (hint hint)

Thanks for sharing :)
