Danced Holes In My Old School Chucks

Danced holes in my old school chucks
Stepped around your beloved Tiffany lamp
My slouch-fit jeans ripped open tonight
Killed the man who called my sister a tramp
Do you remember when we were young
We were so dumb to think that high
Every dream broken with the vintage neon
We never did get off the ground to fly
Long ago poured out all that dusty scotch
I had to throw out those rose-coloured glasses
I see life so differently in these fresh days
No longer writing for myself & the drunken masses

I’d Trade All These Gold Doubloons

I’d trade all these gold doubloons

For another morning with you

Tasting your sweet nectar

Inspiring the day to be fresh & new

I don’t want fame nor glory

I just want to be naked under the covers

Satisfying & emotionally preparing you

Sending you out into the world; a happy lover

Fairly Fancy & Free

rose-1024710.jpg

Fairly fancy & free
Springtime upon my toes
Freshness abounds
Coming up with a rose

Whispering to the winds
Secrets of our years
No place to reside
Time to face our fears

Raised to our health
So we can no longer think
Simple happiness
Encased in nocturnal drink

Let Me Paint Your Lips Red

Let me paint your lips red
The quiet pampering into the night
Let me whisper your possibilities
Popping each button in the flattering light
Silhouettes upon the fresh bedsheets
Mere ideals of what we might be
My body aching for another touch
Your kiss; the only thing to set me free

I Will Never Live Life Through An Instagram Filter

I will never live life through an Instagram filter
I’m going to sing my songs & kick up my heels
I’m free of all their judgements & expectations
My soul doesn’t want what they offer to conceal
I’m going to take leave of the office today
I’m going to dance out in the promise of fresh air
Seeking one of like-minded pursuits & intentions
If you ever need me – you’ll find me out there

Looking Life Dead In The Face

coast-1030752.jpg

Looking life dead in the face
Feeling the fresh seaside air
Never backing away from the cliff
Crumbling footholds not to share
Nostalgic tones deepening now
A wish formulated into a drop
Standing tall against the tide
Generous breaths until you won’t stop

A Tribute To All Things Shiny

fashion-951953.jpg

A tribute to all things shiny
Favorite of mortals & homecoming queens
Stalled in your pursuit
Fresh faced & splendid routines
Nothing lying under perfection
A lie perpetuated all these years
This future didn’t unfold correctly
Be still in the face of your fears

Piles & Piles Of Images

Piles & piles of images
Floating in my mind
Give me a second
Let’s see what we can find
Burnt & coffee stained
Looking for something fresh & true
Be patient & we’ll see
If I can still entertain you
Step off & step back
Throw away preconceived notions
Close your eyes & let us travel
Together, we can make poetry in motion
