Stayin’ Alive


Keep the thoughts going

over and over

if only I had

if only I hadn’t

if only I was

if only I wasn’t

like helicopter blades


holding you safely above

the molten lava

of your waiting, loving heart.

One more day

until you run out of gas

or hope

or sadness

until you happily

plunge into the

burning love

you secretly

ache for.

Everything’s fine

under control

as you think

and float

for one
