Since You Been Away

by Angela Brown

Since you went away boy 
I been slowly dying, dying 
No, no no 
I been slowly dying, dying 
It is drivin, slowly tryin 
drivin me insane 
don't Go 

rapid thoughts 
in my mind 
chasing images 
dancing effortlessly 
across a blank page. 

creatively I freely 
sketch words 
borrowed in time. 

Word patterns 
space and time. 

on a sheet 
freely singing 
notes of 
spoken words. 

Crying notes 
Of rythem and rhyme 
Flowing freeeeely. 

since Prince went away 
got time on my hands 
ain't got no plans. 

I'm trying, slowly dying 
the blues 
No, no, no, no more. 
No, no, no more 

Slowly dying 
from going insane 

Diamonds and Pearls 
Boy and a girl 
diamonds and pearls 
Boy meets girl 
Since you been away 

A tribute to Prince Roger Nelson
