A Lost & Broken Young Man

A lost & broken young man
Swirling around in the desert’s dust
Never able to reach a potential promised
Wasting away; a young life gone bust
But the Almighty works in mysterious ways
Why He looks after lost sheep? I can’t tell
But in my most hopeless hours, I believed
& that’s when I found my Southern Belle

Imagine The Dreams That Could Be

Imagine the dreams that could be
The possibilities of the coming tide
Happiness; if I stopped going to sea
I merely wish to be with my bride
They ship me off; shanghai’d instead
Remembering the oaths I once swore
The promise we made when we were wed
If only I could remain forever upon the shore

Do You Remember When Promises Meant Something

Do you remember when promises meant something
The honor required of citizens in society’s threads
The oaths that never had to be sworn to back then
Gentlemen knew their obligations without lingering dread

Sometimes I’m An Awkward Lover

Sometimes I’m an awkward lover

I try to slap your ass & pull your hair

But I don’t always have confidence

But I’m doing my very best down there

But I can promise you one thing, dear

I will love you and only you forevermore

I may be a gentleman at public events

But I’ll be your pirate behind locked doors

Within The Redefining Of Desire

Within the redefining of desire
Subtle notes of evening’s confines
The heat of the heart’s pure fire
Nothing but love could ever outshine
Unsnapped garters; my secret delusions
I’m forever lost within her brassiere
Butterflies & their innocent intrusions
Each step closer I approach without fear
Her blush blooming from skin so ashen
Coaxed her vigor with her bodice on the floor
Abandoned all reason, condoning reckless passion
I promise a vouchsafed love forever & more

Let Us Survive These Dog Days

Let us survive these dog days
The warmth still rising up to a boil
I’d rather be walking down the beach
But I’m forced to relentlessly toil
I wish to be holding your hand
As we walk in the evening’s glow
Soft words filled with eternal promises
For your love is the last I’ll ever know

Over The Soft Meadows

Over the soft meadows
Dancing in a sun dress
Love amongst the wildflowers
A simple life, but I digress
Spirited away by a charming Prince
With promises of a jeweled crown
She chose aspiration over inspiration
Weighed down, lost, she drowned

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
