Her dresser filled with private thoughts
Some good, wholesome memories; all thrilling
No explanation to fate, but its all we’ve got
Uncovering calm once we seek & are finally willing Like this: Like Loading...

Uncontrollably shake your foot Another morning wide awake Experience as black as soot
We can only be who we are
No sense living in the past tense These are the ramifications Blinded to your own suspense
I know who we once were
Though they are now gone Not victim to anything Excuses made you the pawn
Shed these moments of hate
Bringing you down another level Dreams of agony by default Embraced, but slightly disheveled
Regroup at the breakfast table
Another chance to forever adjust Calming thoughts to carry through After all, we’re merely cosmic dust

Cooler temps mark the new day
Fresh air behind God’s wrath
An eerie calm now remains
Watching quietly in the aftermath
Peeking out the windows
Nervous in the hours after the winds blew
Pressure & fear have dropped
I’ll do anything to hold onto you Like this: Like Loading...
Manicured city walls
Stomping through summer puddles Curiosities of a finer life Scorching rays, can’t help but befuddle
Recoiling to the chaffy shade Searching for the talisman of the storm Knowing we’re in for a futile calm Who could’ve predicted it’d be this warm
But we keep on pushing through Wicking precipitation from her summer gown Effort to remain a head above A damn shame if we perish & drown

Perfection laid out on satin sheets
Beauty dripping away piece by piece
Every dream slipped right through
Life & loss masked by laughing creases
He said you were everything he desired
Burning deep in his soul, but you refused
Moving too fast to stop & notice him
Yet you cry foul, saying you were abused
The sun rises no matter who is pained
Recall broken hearts when you’re the cause
Plump out your pretty pink lips
In the quiet of night, please retract your claws
Calm thyself, you know your own heart
Time to realize you’re the fatal flaw Like this: Like Loading...

With her secrets daintily hushed
& her charms forever applied My heart proudly sings out to her This soul will not calmly run & hide I want to shout my love forever To be wildly demonstrative & loud To cherish her until hell comes calling Within the Lord’s love I am avowed Like this: Like Loading...

The Winter winds keep us bundled
Sending us shivering & reeling Dreams of a warm drink by the hearth Caught up in those distant feelings
Our checklists remain unchecked
Hustle, bustle & we’re forever hurried There must be a moment to calm ourselves To enjoy coffee in the midst of this flurry Like this: Like Loading...

Hobnobbing on a summer’s day
Listening to a calm Pan flute Barefooted on the peaceful grass But this heat makes it all moot
Ignoring all the world’s hate
We choose love above all the static Holding on for a moral life Survival in this society is never automatic Like this: Like Loading...

Stone cold stereotypes
We’re lost in the void Sudden depression creeps On edge; constantly annoyed
Deep breaths to calm
We’re all out of control Transparent in our pain A generation of lost souls Like this: Like Loading...

Life has a way of working out
When you rise in the early morning hours Sip your coffee & focus on the positive You’ll find inner strength, not superpowers Quietly sending out the proper vibes Some days – be humble & pay your dues Keep calm & marinate in your good karma For soon, you’ll be running around in your Underoos Like this: Like Loading...
