Formative Years

I guess it all comes from

losing my virginity

on a cliff edge.

Another mans photo in my purse.

Secondhand Merchandise

You want a bit of me, don’t you?

Although I have a previous owner

You are tempted; I could be yours

I warn you, I’ve been well worn

There are a few rips and tears scarring my history

I am faded; my image only just visible

But, you’re secretly impressed

You’ve been after one like me for years

Hunt me down

Make your offer

Try me

No need to wear me in

Soft, smooth,...

Tongue and Cheek

It has taken ahold of me once more.

Basking and marinating;

my life is in limbo.

At a halt,

with a glance,

Hope arises,

and then just as quickly sets as the sun.

Moments are cherished 

but then despised with a gun.

Feeling the chambers loaded with each shell,

the thought it so real, 

so quick,

so painless.

So easy.

But where does that leave us?

Going fo...

FOR ABSENT FRIENDS

Somewhere in between

the waking and the dream,

I can feel you close to me.

 

Just before times hands

reshape the desert sands,

I can feel you reach for me.

 

In the blink of tear stained eyes,

watching weary to the skies,

I can see you cry for me.

 

In the breaking of the dawn,

in the dew upon the lawn,

I can see you smile for me.

 

In the bright ray...

I LOVE U HELLELUJAH

Sitting a stool;
with my guitar.
It came to me as before
Strumming the tune; and
the music flew.
Echoing
in beautiful silence.
My deep, dark defiance
So many times I have tried
to clear my mind; but
clearing the throat
of faded memories
still vivid only to me
The pitch is horse
As the feelings are on course
The patter continues; and
I can't help myse...

Bitter

How can something so sweet, be so bitter?

Your love was something special, it has never withered.

The night sky comes creeping in as a shadow

As soon as the light is gone, my smile fades

The true side of my heart turns old and gray

For I do not wish to keep living this way

The bottle has been too friendly to me, these last couple days

 

Morning breaks, another night accompl...

Save some love for yourself

 

All I ever wanted was to be all that someone needed

I thought once I achieved that, my loneliness was defeated 
And here you came, I'll give you all my love, you repeated
And happy was I to be the one who received it
Your love was slow and kind
You took the time to discover all the little specs in my mind
As the seasons came and gone, we painted the sky with our bliss
You...

I always thought that if i ever fell for you, things would just fall into place. but when ever i wanted to tell you, id get the jitters and my heart would race.

Will you feel the same way as i do, was all that was running through my mind. even if you did before, i was oblivious, i couldnt read between the lines.

Still, i felt that i had to tell you somehow but it never seemed possible. id ju...
