Offering up a minimalism
Finding cool without effort Not weak enough to share Tough; never going to revert
A mental state removed
Not allowing for them to kill My soul still beating today The essence won’t be distilled
Try as you forever might
I won’t be boiled down to a word No single thought or character All my expressions slowly heard

I can use all the proper words
When needed, I can even be discrete Whispering the sauciest story you ever heard My dear, because of you, I am complete I tend to be modest, but our love is real By your coy smile, I know I’m on the right track Your fingers trace & slowly reveal My God woman! You have the loveliest rack!

Dancing socialites & reformed ladies
Choices of the malevolently absurd
Not really what you figured to be
Those weren’t the chances you heard
Life tries to knock us all off
The rugged seem tenacious & alive
Tapping toes with your perfect partner
Where do we step when we want to survive Like this: Like Loading...

My eye keeps twitching
My soul being crushed by this stress No one wants to hear my bitching Pondering how to get out of this mess I’ve got to look out for #1 Everyone else is doing the same Need to survive until the setting sun I’ve always heard I’m in a losing game Like this: Like Loading...

The man has you grinding away
The organ makes the monkey dance You’re looking for the Promised Land But you never really had the chance
You’re writing your soul on the page
Friends support & love all they heard But the critics cry foul & laugh bitterly You’re only as good as your last word Like this: Like Loading...
Poseurs, pacifists & poets reek
Sitting high on a lifeguard shack
Nighttime cloaked down upon us
Words in darkness never taken back
Ocean waves break the silence tonight
Only our thoughts to be heard otherwise
Isolation not what you thought it’d be
Tearing out your incessant broken eyes
Midnight sounds to be held on tight
A swim where you can never return
A fatigue to be felt deep down
Love exposed to moonlight will forever burn Like this: Like Loading...

Green mermaid lady
I’m still in love with you Always been good to me My affections are overdue Dimly lit stages for hire Writing out these feelings Jittered & confused tonight Staggered & now kneeling Inspiration to keep on going Confidence in my finer words Blocked out memories past Forgetting what was heard Know where you want to be So I’ve come back to you Capitalism be damned! Pour me something new
