Us

I sang a song 

upon that hill

wishing you would hear

 

but the trees and birds

were all that heard

for you were nowhere near

 

I raised a note

so full of hurt 

up to the heavens high

 

and without you,

I laid my pain

upon that midnight sky

 

I cursed the stars,

forevermore

my words so black with hate

 

but they cursed back

and left me ...

Birdsong

i’d lock myself up

so sealed away

in a tower, high up in the sky

 

away from all else

bleak, sorrowful peace

would give my own tears

time to dry

 

i could wake up alone

in this castle of hurt

and feel my dreams fade away

 

but the scene about us

where you stand at my side

is the one i still dream

to this day

 

i could hear the birds sing

Tearboats

Cry me a river

so I know you can feel

the heartache which splits me apart

in hopes you will come 

with a stick of glue

 

get me that violin 

and sing me a song

for I’d play,

until my fingers fell off

just to hear you sing along

 

or come kiss me goodnight

bless me with your gentle touch

and look at me with those glittering stars 

so I may fall asleep

Rosebush

I want to drape the page

with memories, love

with wandering thoughts and

painful regret

 

I want to wonder

what I could be, and would

if I took my words and

made them come true

 

or is that unwise?

to wish for a change 

for the dreams to leave my mind

and join the sunlight around me

 

I want to climb the tallest mountains 

and trees

I would fall i...

Stains

once stood a great warrior

of malice and pride

with no battle too bloody

for his hungering eyes 

 

his blade, sharp and stained

stood tall at his side

left in its wake

only dead men would lie

 

then, in the distance 

that red, setting sun

gave a glimpse to the man

of the deeds he had done

 

the crimson and black

was all he could see

he saw not the...

Shorebreak

the waves, with their

inviting rhythm

unwavering in their steady assault

offering solace in the overwash

they will beat you senseless

throw you around without a 

secound thought

like a doll

ragged, aching

 

the waves, with their

impregnable rhythm

neither merciful nor sudden

the pain, at least

you can expect

while the scintillating breeze
