Dreaming Of A Forgotten Summer

Dreaming of a forgotten summer

Youth; wild eyes & full of spice

The hope only the fresh may know

Never finding your innocence twice

The Good Lord blesses us daily

The sun’s warmth will always provide

Moments to bask, wading in the water

Burdens swept in the outgoing tide

Eyeing the inevitable future

Knowing we must make ourselves free

Standing strong with cheerful hearts

& worries washing themselves out to sea

Ignoring The Idiosyncrasies

Ignoring the idiosyncrasies
Which make us separate beings
Knowing we’re all a little weird
With no need for any agreeing
We are all free to be ourselves
Closing our eyes & just letting go
With no reason to feel burdened
No regret, peace from getting out of the flow

Life Isn’t So Perfect

Life isn’t so perfect
We’ll all get bumps & bruises
Nightmares will find a way
But the path is the one she chooses
Victims are merely lame footnotes
She’s the heroine of her own script
Casting off their burdens/ flipping the bird
“Fuck off, society” she blatantly quipped

The World Keeps On Spinning Without Us

The world keeps on spinning without us
But it can’t stop me from loving you
Time & distance are temporary burdens
Until this deployment is finally through
I take each day as a stepping stone
Cherishing all that you’ll forever mean to me
Through the years we’ve survived strife
For this isn’t the first moment of adversity

Summer Comes Crashing Down Upon Us

Summer comes crashing down upon us
The cliches of sunshine cannot be overstated
We grow warmer & friendlier in the heat
The smiles & the bright sky are interrelated
We’ve been bundled up for far too long
Fleeing society for the beaches to lessen stress
Stripping yourself of these daily burdens
Smelling of sweat & suntan lotion as we undress

Life Gets Complicated – A Furious Mess

Life gets complicated – a furious mess

Undisclosed pain seeping out at the worst time

Stress building towards a fatal fracture

Exit stage right – I need an island & a lime

I want to get my toes dirty in the sand

& find a way to cleanse this sutured heart

To be free from the burden of this memory

To become salt laden before it all falls apart
