I Don’t Need A Thesaurus To Write Poetry

I don’t need a thesaurus to write poetry
I merely take the beauty out of the air
Fragrant thoughts etched into paper
A humble love to remind her you still care

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

Wash Away My Sins

Wash away my sins
Lightning striking us twice
Coming summer rain (soft & light)
That lovely woman – cold as ice
Yet I head for her still
Not one to be dissuaded
She’ll warm to my charms
When I leave her hair unbraided

Stayed Up All Night Trying To Write

  

Stayed up all night trying to write

I still can’t get you out of my head

Sleep didn’t come easy this night

Giving anything to only go to bed

The clock ticks past two & three

Knowing there’s nothing I’m going to find

Off dreaming of nothing, where I want to be

Another scotch to still my racing mind
