Roadside Mantras

on

For the past 40 days, my lover, best friend, soul mate, father to our children and husband, Mountain and I have been writing a short “I love you” comment for each other…today, for my I love you was a song I wrote for him…through I’d share…it’s called:

Roadside Mantras

she’s just the small town girl in me
trusts everyone, yet knows no one
soaked in the sweat of half spent men
tired of drive by lusters calling her fight
her desires driving her wild with want
she sees him in the mist of the night

scared of what lies within and without
scorched and burned by many
she finds herself tainted and used
lost and confused not knowing 
fear takes hold
tears her a new one
she’s lost in the dust of the old

he’ll make a woman out of her
two kids on her hip
a woman must she be
a woman she must be
no denying the past
but the future
is bound to be a blast

she finds herself at the bottom
doom and gloom ride her soul
lost in the West
tryin’ to ease the weight
fakin’ orgasms
and make believe love
her heart’s filled with spasms

the first time she touched him
one tap of his foot
lost in lust
tryin’ to ease the bloom
as he consumes her
storybook love eases the pain
electricity and destiny blur

roadside mantras
filtering into her mind
within them she feels truth
makes her blind
the light too
heart cracked open
bliss breaks through

lost in a daydream
standin’ on a bridge 
down a soul side road
with a lost man on the run
breaks them down
fear shatters into fun
yet she feels like a clown

it comes in fits and bursts
she’s filled with him
heart busting at the seams
but the past clings to her soul
draped in a veil of disgust
she loses her trust
figures it’s all one big game
love sure ain’t the name

the first time she touched him
one tap of his foot
lost in lust
tryin’ to ease the bloom
as he consumes her 
storybook love eases the pain
electricity and destiny scorches their souls
she wonders if it’s all in vain

she’ll never miss the self she was
for she is who she is not who she was

    Excellent imagery in thus song. I read it deeply, and only one form of thought cones to mind. Love, love, love is the water of the spirit, and you have that. The vessel you have it in, Mountain, is cheered and applauded by the two of us.
