‘Caustic Comment’ (new poem) + ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’

Light song, dark poem?

Light song, dark meaning?

No, from that video, seems like light song, light meaning, one meaning. Not like this poem. This poem is … well, I’ll let you decide what this poem is for yourself. Enjoy!

Caustic Comment
By Maggie McGinity

I want to leave and sleep
Let my heart its secrets keep
(Let my heart its secrets keep
Awhile longer)

I see where this is going.
I know the ways of showing
The soulmates have
In the lives of the people I love
(And every day, that love
Is growing stronger)

These troubles I tomorrowed.
Like b’loved books I borrowed,
Support of their pre-marked spines
Could never stay mine
(A silent scream as my heart
Takes me hostage)

So let me leave and sleep
Silence, distance keep
I know enough to see when I have lost it.
(I had no way of knowing
What the cost is)”

Happy Anniversary + ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ poem series

I have been blogging for exactly a year today.

Or so says WordPress, anyways, when they notified me of this.

So yay!!!


I’m also announcing the “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” series.

I tend to get music stuck in my head a lot, so I’m going to write some poetry about it. I’ll write a poem for each of these songs, and as more get stuck, I’ll add them to this list. I’ve also included some YouTube videos for these songs, if you want to pre-party(intellectually speaking) before reading my poems about them.

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head:

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

There Once Was a Man

Fluorescent Adolescent/The Best I Ever Had

Kiss Me Kate Revisited

Anyone Can Whistle

Musical theatre is stickier than gum to my brain, as are many other songs. I’ll be adding things and videos onto this post as songs get stuck on repeat in my head.

Anyways, no poem today! Good night!

Then I would never let another day go by …

But it’s gonna be my year” – “Weightless” by All Time Low
