Another step on a Long road — this’n and that’a way

confusion breeds dreams
in another night
of loneliness

confusion blends the lines
around what can be
and what isn’t

confusion leads a man
to think he is
more than his heart

confusion leads him
into the arms of
untouchable dreams

she breaks through that
and whispers “silly boy
wake up and know it.”

and his confusion
leaves for half a minute
and he sees the way to her arms

if he’s smart he follows
if he’s dumb he lies still
and confusion takes him again

confusion frankly doesn’t care
it’ll grab him again
when her whispers fade in the daylight

So she needs to yell them out
and be strong so they stay with him
if she shares the heart of the one
most blinded and confused.
