Sometimes You Have To Let Go

Sometimes you have to let go

Walk away from all the hurt

Keep going until you can’t

Embrace where the sea takes the dirt

Let all your problems go

Let them wash away forever from here

You’ll find your rock – a foundation

& then their love will be abundantly clear

Such Excitement Running From The Docks

punta-699649

Such excitement running from the docks
Looking for hookers & a cold beer
Neon & painfully loud music
Sorry buddy, I can’t remain here
I need to get out & stretch my legs
Of course I’ll take another drink
My morals can’t be washed by the sea
Your life, you do what you think

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

Empty Streets Late After Dark

Empty streets late after dark

Rain tries to wash away transgression

The anonymous walk back on home

Another night’s bout of depression

Hidden moments of solitude

Lonely stretches of cold concrete

Distant lights seem to fade away

Damp steps along an unknown street

There once was a place to go

Reasons for each & every step

Though all that was lost long ago

Into my bottle of cheap wine I wept
