My Feet Don’t Move Nearly As Well







My feet don’t move nearly as well
As they do in my mind’s eye
But I still wish to ask you to dance
For a chance to sing you a lullaby
I wish to exist in the same locale as you
To be present in a better world than mine
There are dreams that could be something
To aspire to; to be worthy of the sun’s shine


The Truth About Women’s Feet


Love wrapped around my mind like a shroud

Full of colors, spectrums & radiant splashes

Not a day without engulfing sunshine

Blinded by pantyhose & false eyelashes

I believed in the fairytale courtships

Sipping champagne from glass slippers

Lovely damsels in need of gentlemen

Revealed to be crude strumpet strippers

My soul could not take this detail

Where was my love with elegant class

Distraught in this new reality

Stuck on feet made for crystal glass

How could my dreams unravel so

This giving me pause to think

Now I understand the truth

That women’s feet actually stink

To The Beautiful Blonde


To the beautiful blonde
Who makes me move my feet
Forever will never be enough
Advancing in life, never to retreat
You makes my heart smile
Together as one within our days
Hands held tightly
Souls expose; naked in the morning rays

Just A Suburban Housedad


Just a suburban housedad
Toting the kids in a station wagon
There’s no concept of cool left
Listening to Jerry slay the dragon
I’m just trying to live my life
Please keep your drama to your own
High school wasn’t fun the first time
Trust me, that coop’s been flown

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty

Oblivious to my surroundings
Because I truly don’t care
My priority is this family
Perfectly content in my own lair
Never apologizing for being me
Many have been justly infuriated
I just smile & nod
Truth is I’m quite understated

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty

Sundown Brings On The Reduced Heat


Sundown brings on the reduced heat
Wind whispering to sail with the tides
Vapors tread quietly upon the feet
Decisions enter & thoroughly abide
Lonely bird settles down on the rails
Experience brings on a sullen glow
We cannot escape when life fails
Currents grip & provide the undertow

Springtime Popping Outside


Springtime popping outside
Listening to my Celtic tunes
Grateful for a house to clean
Reports of rain coming soon
Darling damsels at my feet
Enjoying these warmer days
Dancing with pointed toes
Laughing as we let the bagpipes play

Watching Waves Ride Up To The Railing


Watching waves ride up to the railing
White caps at each & every rise
The boat shaking under your feet
Feeling dread well up inside your eyes
Careful to step away from the edge
Never been this close to the absolute
Those merciless swells keep rolling
Only you can keep the steel under your boot

The Waves Ripple Through The Water


the waves ripple through the water

the moon illuminates the midnight sky

my feet nestled in the soft, white sand

I feel all alone, but don’t quite know why

as I walk, three little birds take flight

I am calmed by the ocean’s gentle roar

a cool spray soothes my weary face

I’m at peace, but know I need something more
