Homespun Dream

A Poem By Madeline // 2/21/2014

Homespun Dream

I think you've become a homespun dream
One that's vague and commits to nothing
A smiling way to bypass idle time
Today, dream, I looked and you weren't so divine
It was as if all the sudden you were compromised
Of everything I loved and all I disliked
All surface face qualms and no density
Relieved staying power, my dream, you left me
And even if it was just a moment in time
I was without need for you
It was something I liked

Newsprint

Why is it that even though you've changed
I can still smile at the same freckled face
And say wow is it that I'm still clinging to him?
If we met I think I could love you again

Matter of Fact

So she says maybe they can hang out together
Let's not (as per usual, no offense intended)
So what if I sound like a stuck-up snobby brat
I remain in contact with my entitled opinion
To be honest in full which you at least deserve
You're nice and have talent and slivers of verve
But it's after that amounts to an impression that's lasting
Throw out a crass word, deluded opinion in passing
And what's left are two minds that do not think alike
I'm not asking for my twin--just someone that knows right
From wrong
Speak once for yourself or you're not worth my time

Again, sigh, My Friend

It's pretty commonplace
For me
To think about your face
The way
It juts and twists a profound being
It's pretty commonplace
For me

I really like all of these,

I really like all of these, especially the last two.

A while and a half indeed.

"A while and a half" Thankyou, I just had a burst of inspiration for songwriting from that! Don't mind if I use it, do you?

I like all of these. Homespun dream I quite connected with, I've read it four times now, and I love it more and more. "Of everything I loved and all I disliked"

"I'm not asking for my twin" Yes. Yes. YESSSS!!

And I loved the other two as well. I'm looking forward to the next while and a half. :)

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh

Thank you girls! Erin--thank

Thank you girls!

Erin--thank you so much for reading!

Maddi--No problem! :) Promise you'll share the song? :D I'm so glad you liked Homespun Dream! I think it was my favorite. Is the conceited? I totally don't mean it in a conceited way--swear.

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

@Homey

Share my song? Haha. He he. Really? You made me laugh...maybe in about ten years, yeah, sure I'll share songs with you. IF its even done by then...nah, guess I'm being just a tad too sarcastic.

And no! It is NOT conceited at all!

Pssh, don't be shy! You could

Pssh, don't be shy! You could post the lyrics here. :) And don't worry--a tad too sarcastic is usually my default, as you probably know by now, so I get it. ;)
