Ideas – dart – inandout – my head,

Buzz a-r-o-u-n-d my mind;

One, perhaps STRonger,

Persists a little longer~~~

Lodges in my brain,

The rest are swept away

Like sterile eggs

Kept for another day…

My Head, My Brain, My Mind

.

My head says one thing,

But I can’t make up my mind.

My brain tells me, ‘No’,

But my mind cannot decide.

.

There is no unity between the three,

They all seem doomed to disagree.

‘Mind over matter’, or so the saying goes,

So, what’s the matter with my mind?

.

‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is another,

So tell me, my brother,

Is it possible to leave my mind behind

And thus be out of my mind?

.

I can lose my mind or lose my head

But if I lost my brain, I would be dead.

The Prison of Her Mind

 

The Prison of Her Mind

 ~~~

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

[And what is your name again?]

-a-b-c-d-e-f-g-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

-a-b-c-d-e-f-g-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

Ken jy vir Japie, André of Theunis?

[Do you know Japie, André or Theunis?]

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

~~~

Arms flailing to keep her balance

Leaning, falling in slow motion

Head spinning, in rotation

Of never-ending circles in her mind

Will the nightmare never end

Is there any way to mend

Electric signals disconnected

Endless thoughts have separated

Flitting, floating through the air

Powerless to bind

To other atoms in her mind

~~~
