Lost Lake Lovesong

Bright petals outstretched for sun / Above the cool desert floor / From which she grew

Beneath the streetlight

Embracing affection from a safe distance / Wishing silently she might / She might see beyond a façade / Faintly painted on / And fading

Music for no one at all

You hold tightly to this, / the grip is comfort / when it’s all getting loose. / Warmth is a soothing elixir / seeping through the f…

Wiser to Heal

Pain’s paint is brightest when fresh and wet / It subsides as it dries, and fades with age / Healing just happens / we move on to forget

Breakthrough Jaded

A faded apparition where the genuine glee was lost / We never ask the cost / When spending through an emotion now spent

I’m Always Fine

Resiliency is key / Smiling back with bloody teeth / Confront to release / know / these blows life’s thrown / Won’t topple me

The Haunt of Wanting

An apparition once sited went into hiding / Where our fingertips laced / misted, lifted without a trace / I still see her face / sometimes……

So the Song Goes…

Yet my heart feels left with ache from those wants / Haunts? She does and they do. Always true / Only if roses were red and violets were b…

There’s No Time Like Now

There’s no time like now / To walk past what’s passed / and leave tomorrow to chance / Dwelling is the space a mind / makes it’s noise in …

Handful of Sand

Never mine / those fleeting grains of sand / sit tight for another man / and seep slow from me / woefully

Fleeting, Brief, and Gone

In each and every other sky / stars shine ever more bright / to the lone, dimly lit side

NYE CHEER-my style

Feels like the grains are rising… / forgoing gravity / the hourglass contortion that funneled us this far / …

Connection Error

Romance is semantics left back / where die-hards die / and neophytes toss their heads and laugh

Personal Jabs III

A shameless way of surviving first / and leaving no clue as to what next Wednesday brings / or how much Yesterday meant

Wanting the Haveless

It’s such a tragic madness, / …wanting the Haveless / We seek out ache adamant / that love should feel reprimanded.

This Affection has a Pricetag

So confounding… / the form takes after poured from / desperate bottle / and into manipulative mold

Opposites Subtract

Are the lonely souls tripped up / in sad bastard heart strings / doomed to only love the unaffected?

I can smell you / permeating perfume from written pages / makes lilacs envy your craved fragrance

I Lust You

We glow pleasured now / a tangle of limbs, and sheets / tousled tresses, and interlaced fingers / all mingled like harmony

Full Circle

Coldly you smoldered me / openly, open me and peer inside / Apathetic to what you find and left here now to die

Derailed Train of Thought

I stand, a locomotive, raging off the track / teetering engine building steam / throwing all your notions back

Surreality TV: a Pop Culture Diss

I saw Miss Hilton’s soul walk out of her lithe body / It looked like a cellophane bag filled with pink cotton candy

Longing for May

Now lonely lovers recoil, licking wounds / pacing rooms, / cursing full moons / we gazed on naked / in early june
