I trace your lips with my finger
Such pouty perfection in this face I want to devour you right here But in public is not the proper place So I whisper one word: “tonight” & let you think upon that all day You’ll stew & simmer & imagine How all this love will be conveyed

Discarded waves of soft dreams
Mislabeled by errant letter placement
Leaving bookmarks for posterity
Undue reams of self-abasement
Lighting dry wicks by morning
That sadness- we might alleviate
Exploring incantations in words
For a soul’s thirst to invigorate

Dissipating quietly on a warming shore
Seeing lightning strike off the coast A subtle snapshot to something more I think I’m free, but still haunted by her ghost
There’s a storm is coming this way
You can feel it heading from out to sea We’re gonna get a bit of a blow today Teeth to the wind; no place I’d rather be Like this: Like Loading...

To my beloved friends
Though we live in far off places & may not have the honor Of gracing each other’s faces
The sands of time are finite
& we have so many demands On how we spend each grain Whether I’m at sea or on dry land
Yet know, I keep you with me
Close to this weary heart Gather in for a New Years’ toast Opportunity for a fresh start Like this: Like Loading...

I’ve traveled the world
& I keep returning to the same notion
I’ve seen interesting places
But I never again want to sail the ocean
My simple truth is that I’m content
I’ve found a good life; that should be clear
The grass is never greener anywhere else
We’re on an amazing course; we shouldn’t veer
There are so many opportunities
I would never close any of those doors
I don’t ever want to let go of your hand
Now that I have & forevermore come ashore Like this: Like Loading...

Finding the courage to excel
Knowing your place doesn’t compute Internal struggles with society Forcing a soul to be steadfast & resolute
Innocent people lost in tragic groupthink
Needing to be fleshed out in their own air It’s a lonely world among the righteous Devoid of rhetoric; most are sadly unaware Like this: Like Loading...
Returning to the world
Finding life left unraveled
A smile never so grand
Home the best place traveled
Warmth of simple comforts
Never trading precious delights
Beauty in these open arms
Darkness eclipsed by light Like this: Like Loading...
Come on up for a cup of coffee
I hope you’ve brought your cheery attitude
My place will be easily discovered
The one with the gentleman toasting you in the nude Like this: Like Loading...

I wish I could paint
Placing my mind on display I wish I could draw Expressing myself in another way Instead, I’ll hammer these words Sifting them through Every one; my soul An extra note written to you Like this: Like Loading...
