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

I’m Writing

writing-1209700.jpg

I’m writing
Trying to find a lost charm
Not of Bedazzled elements
A memory folded away from harm
I’m searching for a thought
The secret learned from these years
Not of scandalous deeds
But the love I forever held dear

My Soul Fills With Song For Uncle Walt

walt-whitman-391107.jpg

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

Fairly Fancy & Free

rose-1024710.jpg

Fairly fancy & free
Springtime upon my toes
Freshness abounds
Coming up with a rose

Whispering to the winds
Secrets of our years
No place to reside
Time to face our fears

Raised to our health
So we can no longer think
Simple happiness
Encased in nocturnal drink

Glassy Eyed Vipers Stand In The Corner

young-691660.jpg

Glassy eyed vipers stand in the corner
Memories of cool water and menthol cigarettes
Manual labor for a couple more summers
Then throw me with the rest of your vets
Counting the days until they are all gone
Cast off into an unknown unforgiving sea
Vacant and alone on a sunny day
The cold winter days at least give reason to be
Memories of forgotten love lost
Those years crash against my soul
Pictures and letters no more than ash
Not enough booze to fill this very hole

I Just Want You To Love Me Enough

couple-498484.jpg

I just want you to love me enough
To be impressed by these words I write
To be flattered & thoroughly aroused
Granting us a bacchanalian night
I just want you to love me profusely
Passionately; all the years through
To be by my side until the Pearly Gates
For that’s how I feel about you

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

Mechanical Clicking In The Darkness

woman-1081873.jpg

Mechanical clicking in the darkness
Comprehensive yearnings to be free
Which journey to the successful path
To escape their judgmental memory
Boldness provides an excellent voice
Isolation bringing forth creative spawn
Years since you were labelled
Cumulative residue not how you were drawn

Fifteen Dollars & A Broken Jaw To Boot

usa-1061836

Fifteen dollars & a broken jaw to boot
Expanding cities complete with souls for sale
Government land, but it’s not something to own
Your identity stolen down a worn migration trail
Pushing eighty-five before the winter sun goes down
Desert road adventures through the land of the free
Missing midnight mass for its not yet that time
Rumors & hints of how much you really mean to me
Your voice remains dry after another weekend
Do you remember the faces of all those left undone
Our days pass on by in those decadent whispers
Though all our remaining years will pass by as one
