These Prevailing Winds – Swirling

sailing-vessel-1861783.jpg

These prevailing winds – swirling
Feeling the yoke around my neck
The task master measures that whip
Another journey upon a flight deck
Time is wasted when we’re free
But now I wish I could have it all back
Once again away from all that I love
Only hateful sounds of that painful crack

I’m Not Like Your Other Suitors

wedding-018

I’m not like your other suitors
A gentleman of old school tastes
Properly courting such a fine lady
Anything less would sure be a waste
I’ll open doors & treat you like a queen
I’m the most courteous pirate yet
The duality of differing traits
But I’m the sexiest Pan you ever met

Some Say I Might Be Obsessed

romance-1822585.jpg

Some say I might be obsessed
Others that I’m insincere
But they’re bitter ol’ fools
I know what I cherish & hold dear
I won’t cower to their expectations
Too many years wasted being afraid
Humbly; I submit to the path of happiness
The continuing journey of this life we made

Drinking Out Of The Good Crystal

Drinking out of the good crystal
Pouring another glass of Scotch
I’m not going to waste this life
I’m not going to stand by & watch
I want to get my hands dirty
Experience should be more than a page
I’m not going to live by proxy
I’m going die a virile man in my old age

I’m Not Worried About Your Conspiracies

seats-495235.jpg

I’m not worried about your conspiracies

I’m just trying to make my bones

Your extremist beliefs bore me

I won’t sink my sword into your throne

The world will always keep spinning

I gotta take my seabag to the boat

You’ve doubled down on your pair of criminals

I’ve always known they’re a waste of my vote

Moments Filled With Tragic Thoughts

man-1216854.jpg

Moments filled with tragic thoughts
A past I never wanted to defend
Those weren’t the only ones
Wasted time you never got to spend
Heartbroken & scattered about
Cannot remain stagnant out of spite
Motivation needed to gather yourself
Fewer sands to rebuild up to that height

I Like Foreplay

grapefruit-1385564.jpg

I like foreplay

My chance to slowly deliberate

To uncover the forever unseen

Primal urges for me to manipulate

I can take you to your dreams

Your precious time I’ll never waste

Delaying gratification untold hours

I need to savor my favorite taste

Inverted Staircases Painted Slightly Blue

stairs-336710.jpg

Inverted staircases painted slightly blue

Slender secrets echo in the trapped night

Wasted words from jilted lovers ring true

Loosened spirits giving reason to finally fight

Undistilled mind-thought alive with fear

Floating away silently throughout the season

Repeated attempts to ponder why we’re here

Explain away actions until they’re treason
