CHAINS IN THE MIND

Chains in the mind
     They cripple and
          they bind
     make me deaf
          make you blind
     keep us both
          confined

Chains in the mind
     They contort and
          they stunt
     keep me hunched
          keep me from hunches
               that report
                           that

Chains in the mind
            They cripple and
                        they bind
            make me deaf
                        make you blind
            keep us both
                        confined

 

Slowly I unbend
            Stand tall
            Stand firm
            Stand my ground
            Make a move
            Take a step
            Leave
                        where I've been bound

 

You think me harsh
I feel I mend
            the broken links
                        in my mind

Links
not like in a chain
            that confines
like needed channels
            that break blind
                        alleys
                              dead
                        ends
                              dead
                        locks

 

As the links mend
I break
        the chains in my mind
  take
        blind
              folds off my eyes

 

Chains in the mind
They twist
            They distort
                            contort
They cut the living short

                                    NO NO NO    electric sparks
                                                  cut connections
                                                  flash them apart

 

Chains in the mind
                    hard cold metal
hard to bend

Words Music Rap Poetry. Chains in the mind.
They cripple and they bind.
Make me deaf, make you blind.
Keep us both confined.
Rap. Beat. Rhythm. Spoken Word.
Elsas Words Music.


A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.





WORDS MUSIC WORDS

Every time I'm going
into the words not knowing
what kind of thing I'm doing
what is this thing I'm making
what are these words creating

Words music, music words, rhythm beat,
spoken word, song,
rap poetry, indie alternative music,
trip hip unhip unzipped
whispered, shouted, sung.

What is this?
spoken word poetry?
indie alternative music words?
indie alternative words music?
performance art?
rap tap rhythm song?

Where do these words belong?
They don't follow song rules
so they can't be songs
Are some rap
with a rap beat?
Are some spoken word?
Some are to be sung -
country, trip hop, pop, folk, blues,
indie alternative music,
country folk, rock and roll, rap,
world beat, jazz, folk pop,
rhythm and blues.

rhythm beat strong
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words to be lived
moments

word music worlds
rhythm beat

What's cooking?
Whatever comes -
words alive
words strong
words music worlds
rhythm beat
strong
movement
words moving
words shaping
words taking
words trying
     to catch life
     to catch moments
        moments like fireflies
          one moment bright
          next moment gone
words
words and rhythm
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words, sounds, music

word music worlds

words going on and on
like the beat of a drum
word pieces
piecing together moments

word music worlds

stronger
fainter
closer

and then
can't hear
they're gone

like moments
