Old, Wind Soaked Cafes & Streets

Old, wind soaked cafes & streets
The walls crumbling within their age
Mold & mildew beginning to overtake
Nothing left here to properly disengage
Harsh realities of your actual life
This future isn’t how it was supposed to work
The burning makes it impossible
The world come back with a strong jerk
Vision melts into a gloomy haze
Never told it could be this way
Heart dropping with perpetual rain
Everything fades to dark & grey

Staring Into A Blank Page

Staring into a blank page
Where can we take this from here
Will you support an unattractive soul
Will I always find friends of good cheer
I question the future as if it weren’t sold
Please tell me we still have a chance to be free
I type out thoughts that you might never know
But throughout time & space, you’ve meant more to me

My Soul Fills With Song For Uncle Walt

My soul fills with song for Uncle Walt
Years of running in circles
Trying to find my voice
He whispered his love in my ear
My wheels slipping on the rails
I turn, ready for the future
Ripping down my walls
Looking outside for someone to share
Hiding in shadows no more
I shall set sail for those lost dreams

Pseudonyms & Plagiarisms

woman-1285177.jpg

Pseudonyms & plagiarisms
Rebounding from an unsound defeat
Words a quaint & salacious secret
She was never so polite or discrete
Never recovering from such a mark
Unsure of future rings & knockings
Attempts at modeling a smile
Fear from being tied in her stockings

Thinking You Were A Little Bit Off

person-1281768.jpg

Thinking you were a little bit off
Wishing for the future to materialize
Not wishing to wrap you in their arms
Some not meant for their prying eyes
The status lingering on the walls
Set aside from the accepted chorus
Realization of the ugliness around
Not always a proper moment for us

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

High Upon The Hill

High upon the hill
With the city down below
Lies a teary-eyed princess
With reasons she doesn’t know
The magic of forgotten beauties
The thought of a heart inspired
Her soul is pure
The enchantment of that desired
The cool wind gives a chill
Modesty mixed with being shy
The future is still ahead
There’s hope in the midnight sky

Cold War Runways Still Clearly Marked

residential-1149514

Cold war runways still clearly marked
A legacy of certain impending doom
Farmhouse grill just the other side
These suburbanites need more room
Lost family values since those days
Deteriorated grain silos crumble in rust
Red wooden barn needing more paint
Orchard roads merely a path of dust
Good soil to grow your dreams in
Futures not to be hindered by our past
Imagine a world where children are free
Free to imagine a peace that will last
