10,000 feet

Leave a comment

10,000 feet above the ground
And I’m flyin’ high
I’m grinnin’ like an idiot
And I don’t know why

But my feet are restless
And hearts a beatin’
My eyes are smiling
Because I feel good

10,000 feet above the ground
And I’m flyin’ high
I’m grinnin’ like an idiot
And I don’t know why

But the suns a’shinin’
And not a cloud in sight
Just birds singing
And bright blue skies

Press my face to the window
And close my eyes
Let out a long held sigh

10,000 feet above the ground
And I’m flyin’ high
I’m grinnin’ like an idiot
And I don’t know why

Breathe it all out
And I’m not gonna lie
I’m tired of cryin’
I wanna dance
And I wanna sing

Get on with this living
Instead of this sighin’
No more nightmares
Stress or whinin’

10,000 feet above the ground
And I’m flyin’ high
I’m grinnin’ like an idiot
And I don’t know why

Could be worse

You ain’t the only one
Who’s had a bad day
Just get outta bed
I’ve got something to say

Cancer they said
Just weeks before
She left them
But he’s trying
For the kids to be ok

You ain’t the only one
Who’s had a bad day
Hold your head up to the light
Soak in some rays

He was born with
A broken heart
But a fighters soul
Little guys only four
Twelve surgeries
And more to go

You ain’t the only one
Who’s had a bad day
Sun’s still shinin’
In the most brilliant way

They said she had it coming
The way she walked
Way she talked
Kind of like she wanted
It all along

You ain’t the only one
Who’s had a bad day
You ain’t the only one
Who’s had a bad day

So get outta bed
And know you ain’t alone
I’ll hug you close
Until the shaking stops
And what they said
And what they did
Fades away

At 3am

In the deafness of 3am
Except the rapid thump
Thump
Thumping
Of my heart

And echo
Of the screams
From dreams
Not really dreams

But memories
Of things
I didn’t really
Want to remember

Brings such dreadful
Shattering
Of peace
Or rather pieces
Of me
Left to gather

What’s left
In the silence
And darkness
Of the night

Of horrors
Never set right
Left unsettled
Demons cradling
Me, here,
left without sight

Disconnected

The light
Is so bright
It’s hard
Not to squint

Against
The brilliance
Of August afternoon

Blue skies
Hide the clouds
Under my eyes

And the dried
Tracks
That ran down
Warm sun soaked
Cheeks

From the fat salty
Tears I cried
When I hope
Nobody’s looking

In the cheerful
Market
Where I wander
Snapping pictures
Of happy smiles

Feeling
A million miles
Away

Pondering deeds

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
