Dinosaur

by Chris Sorrenti


Diplodocus
Apatosaurus
Tyrannosaurus too

You don’t want to be like them
Never see them as being your friends
Think of what you really want
In the centre of your mind
Just let the girl come out in you
And add it to your life

So many times I saw us walking
Talking as long time friends
Laughing...playing...being alive
I thought there’d be no end
Is life so long that you can waste it
And never make amends?

Stegosaurus
Triceratops
Allosaurus too

Their fate was sealed long ago
I’m sure it’s not
What you would choose to do

So many times our chemistry raced
With the charge that sparks the few
But somehow words...
Intentions got misplaced
Memories fading from day to day
To pictures that were never there

So many times I saw us talking
Walking on the wind
Laughing...playing...being alive
Is life so short that you can waste it
Without ever forgiving a friend?
