Hit and Run

It happens as quickly as it ends, a muffled slam and a splintering of cracks.

Night has fallen quickly, the dull glare of the streetlights hidden by the blinds.

I barely stir when it happens, only waking when footsteps race past my door.

“What’s happening?” I ask groggily, surveying the urgency of my parents.

My brother replies “A car crashed through our fence!”

With both excitemen...

Cause I remember

Do you remember when we were kids

and time was just a staircase we couldn’t wait to get to the top of

A bunch of spoiled kids with lives of pure bliss

impatient, immature, imperfect moments of the past in place

Pictures of a camera, all frozen in such haste


Do you remember when we would play hide and seek

I would hide all of me and you would come and find

Sauce For The Goose (Rough Justice)

1    Yes, I ran away!
      It was so close to killing me.
      I couldn't take the pain,
      But you think I should have let it end me.

               What kind of justice
                                 is without trial?
               What kind of friend
                                 fights on the other side?
               What kind of life?

2    And I couldn't...

To A Friend To Be Forgotten

I'm not going to tell you that I'm breaking apart.
I'm not going to show you where you've broken my heart.

Why am I always being risked by other people?
Shot down in flames from a safe distance.

I'm not going to let you back to work from inside.
I'm not going to be there, when you realise why.

I'm not going to see you when I see you around.
I'm not going to hear your sounds.

Why is...

love's tempestbreaking apartloss of friendship

Old Friends


The revolving door of frienships hurts
When it clips you on the way out 
Empty words fall on dead ears 
And two people are left broken 

Where did it all go wrong?
Both too afraid to ask 
Both too kind to tell the truth 

How do you tell someone who was once your dearest confidant 
That their cals now fill you with loss 
Phone rings and you see their name and panic

You don't have time and so

You're fading slowly from my life

Messages left hanging

Like smoke rings in cyberspace

But the fading is masked

By a feeling of liking and being liked

Which I tend to persist in

Because you still 'like' my stuff

As I do yours

And that seems to be a close enough equivalent

The Tattered Umbrella


Moonbeam fades
and dark clouds invade
raindrops fall at the
rain soaked feet..
The umbrella of friendship
tattered with holes
refuse to protect me today..

Thoughts run back
to another dark night,
where it rained as fiercely as now..
Yes, I was soaked, that day too
not from the umbrella- yet not tattered-
but from trying to protect a friend
from the cascading rain..
The raindro...

loss of friendshiplove

Sorry, I'm temporarily done

Sorry buddy for what's gone on
If only you had actually known
How much that  I sacrificed for you
And this friendship that I thought was true

I honestly stood by you always
I was the friend that would have stayed
But in the end it was you that betrayed
Me in the most hurtful of ways

We had a history that we kept a mystery
Because it wasn't knowledge that we wanted freed
Why is that a...
