SQUEEZE THE DAY

SQUEEZE THE DAY

sometimes feel
so light
like a boxer
in a featherweight fight
feet wanna
take flight
could fly
as a kite
when the mood's
just right
moon hangs low
in the night
dance moves
down tight
brass ring
in sight
feel my spirit
soar
float across
the floor
no walls
only doors
in life's ocean
got my oar
gonna sway
to and fro
no stop sign
only go
got rythm
in flo...

QUESTION

QUESTION

at night
i question
the time
we spent

for me it
was a moment
for you it
came and went

those morning
whisperings
did they mean
anything

echoed my words
like a parrot
affection a
dangling carrot

tried to reach out
and grab it
dropped me like
a bad habit

made love
with passion
following day
fell out of fashion

tossed
aside
like yesyerday's
headline

call...

BEEN THINKING OF YOU

BEEN THINKING OF YOU

been thinking
of you
wish it
wasn't true
don't wanna remember
the cost
was more than
love lost
first it
was fun
didn't mean to 
hurt anyone
as feelings
grew
we both
knew
time
to say
goodbye
cuz you were
never mine
now we
carry shame
could say
we earned
the name
didn't think of
anybody else
only
ourselves
should've known
better
bear a 
scarle...

NO LOOKIN' BACK

NO LOOKIN' BACK

oh yes i'm on 
solid ground
everything"s 
comin round
what was lost
is found
mountaintop
from a mound
pulled myself
up
half filled
is my cup
exorcised
dirty deeds
fulfilling
needs
sprouting
seeds
can feel
my heart beat
got me movin
my feet
seperated chaff
from wheat
my dust you're
gonna eat
it's as if
i could do
a back flip
brave a
polar dip
missed...

LINK

LINK

couldn't rise
above
not being
loved
couldn't speak
a word
afraid truth
would be heard
couldn't show
my strength
held at
length
couldn't show
my heart
felt so
apart
couldn't share
my mind
when i was so
hard to find
couldn't produce
being so
reduced
couldn't move
to action
drowning in
distraction
couldn't lose
the shame
labels
or names
couldn't be
in the here

SAY I'M EXTRA

SAY I'M EXTRA

jacked up i get
when feeling paaionate
say i'm extra
i answer you bet
as you can see
hasn't stopped me yet
each new dawn
gotta verse for my song
trail blazers on
time to get along
seize the day with lust
boots kickin up dust
not a second to waste
too much life to taste
forget apathy
gotta express me
yes i get excited
when i'm delighted
laugh and sing
celebrating

STICKS & STONES

STICKS & STONES

sticks and stones
may break bones
me they don't know
my soul they don't own
let them talk and talk
while i walk the walk
won't let words hurt
or drag me through the dirt
won't be pushed aside
or run and hide
can tear me down
won't be their clown
can point and laugh
i'll be smiling last
take their knocks
be building blocks
take their best shot
be showing what i g...

RATHER YOU GO AWAY

RATHER YOU GO AWAY

don't wanna tell
the truth
about the things
i do
so i won't 
lose you
don't wanna 
lie
avoid your
eyes
cuz what if you
say goodbye
don't speak
honestly
tell you secrets
about me
because you might
turn and leave
act like a
chameleon
so it
won't end
can't let my
colors show
so i keep up
the pose
won't reveal
my core
afraid you"ll walk
out the door

LIFE LESSONS

LIFE LESSONS

sometimes
feel cursed
cost more
than it's worth
why do life's teachings
have to hurt
lessons learned
only after
being burned
sun stops
shining
before we see
silver linings
something has 
to be gone
to know we
should've held on
not til
loved ones die
what they meant
do we realize
hard times
may be few
reveals character
in you
every
difficulty
comes with
p...

APPRECIATION

APPRECIATION

had a bad
attititude
no grace
or gratitude
came from a place
of greed
what was in it
for me
complain about the cards
i was dealt
oh so sorry
for myself i felt
couldn't fly
on one wing
boohoo and cry
didn't have any bling
only ball i caught
was thrown with a curve
never got
what i thought i deserved
whined a lot
about life
a childhood
of strife
no goals
no p...

BACK AGAIN

BACK AGAIN

do you miss me
at night
or is it
out of mind
when out of sight
a waste
of time
only handing me
a line
called me
one of a kind
now you're so
hard to find
don't get it
confused
used you
too
don't wanna be
a notch on
your post
just another
boast
now you treat me
like a ghost
started as
friends
said it would last
til the end
remembering
those words
is what

PHOTOS & WORDS

PHOTOS & WORDS

a friend
stopped by
asked
why
do others
care
what you put
out there
first i was
perplexed
surely she
did jest
get anxious
inside
when i
don't write
feel
light
after letting
it fly
yes it floats
my boat
so is it
ego
sending a
post
this friend travels
takes photographs
poetry...short stories
are similar to that
can't help
what i am
live in
imaginati...

SEASON OF ME

SEASON OF ME

attacked
life
as if in a
title fight
yield meant
nothing to me
wrong direction
one way street
flew like
a drone
into a
no fly zone
putting out
fires
growing
tired
under strain
fuming smoke stack
runaway train
gone off track
stuck in
reverse
hindsight
cursed
bull in a
china shop
fish outta water
flip...flop
square peg
trying to fit in
with a circle
of ...

WON"T LOOK BACK

WON"T LOOK BACK

turn towards the door
don't have words anymore
wouldn't stay
didn't ask anyway
couldn't keep up with this charade
best plans laid
what can i say
watched our dreams fade away
was only us
in the dust
nothing to cloud
our vision now
air's cleared
except for the tears
seeing it disappear
was my biggest fear
had to face the truth
long ago we were through
ships passi...
