Pondering deeds

Leave a comment

I raise my hands to the sky
And close my eyes
Don’t know what’s up there
Sure as hell don’t know why

Fat teardrops
Tumble down dry cheeks
Endless weeks
Turn to endless years
And still I cry

It ain’t spilled milk
And it ain’t because
I didn’t get my way
It wasn’t me being petty
And it sure as hell
Because I lost my way

From the path
Of righteousness
A lost lamb
Wandered from the flock

My compass
Is not broken
And my deeds
Have not lead astray
Yet here I stand
Despite it all

Whispering to any gods
That’ll listen
“Why?”

Her and I

Leave a comment

Inside this tired mind
Where I hide
I look out
Through her green eyes

Trying to find
That one answer
To solve them all

In the dark of night
Turned red
From all her crying

Mid afternoon
After the last person
She’s tried to help
She lowers
Her head to desk
And sighs

And I reconcile
Her with I
As I look out
Through her green eyes

Letters

Words etched
Into the parchment

straight
from your heart
to mine

soaked
in sincerity

Salted drops
drip
down cheeks

from the utter beauty
of the message

Wraps around me
like a warm
hug

Feelin’ blue

This crazy world spins
And I’m just barely
Holding on
Fingertips bleeding
Where they’re
Digging in

I’m feeling blue
and want to be with you

Baby I’m barely
hanging in
I’m feeling blue
I just want to be with you
Say you want me too

When this body crumbles
And I, coming undone
From all the pressures
And I don’t know
What I’m going to do

I’m feeling blue
and want to be with you

Baby I’m barely
hanging in
I’m feeling blue
I just want to be with you
Say you want me too

And when the day
Is done
And my eyes won’t close
And I’m afraid
Of what’s to come

I’m feeling blue
and want to be with you

Baby I’m barely
hanging in
I’m feeling blue
I just want to be with you
Say you want me too

Her demons

Loving her was easy
He said
As he kissed her lips

Taking little sips
Of her sighs
Looking into
Endless green eyes

And he meant
It too

With the sun
Shining
So bright
In the moment
That seemed so right

Easily forgetting
About
Her band
Of wayward demons

That followed her
Everywhere
Hiding in shadows

And with rabid
Hounds of hell
Played well into
The darkness of night

Loving her so much
They never
EVER left her
Out of sight

I stood here
you stood
There

From across
The grass
We locked gazes

Big fat
Salted drops
Dripped

Slipped
From the corner
Of green eyes

Down freckled
Cheeks
For what
Seems weeks

And for most
Beautiful
Rarest
of seconds

The noise
Stopped

dirty feet
and freckled noses
sand castles
scattered buckets

where littered
shovels
And wet towels
show happy days

Swimming like fishes
along the shore
Between flips
And floating along
Under the sun

campfires
where marshmallows
catch fire and end
in sticky faced
smiles
