I still see you when I sleep
Heroine of my iridescent dreams
Basking in the rays of moonlight
Proving love exists between the seams
Marching forward into my mind
Catching lightning in a crystal ball
I am consumed by your beauty
Together we tumble, one for all Like this: Like Loading...

There are those who think me boring
There are those who think me droll
But I take all their judgements in stride
For I must stay true to my own soul
Their queries do not make me stir
For I no longer have anything to prove
But you better grip these sheets
Lookin’ lovely, hope you’re ready to move
Wasted my youth, obeyed all the rules
I’m enlightened; I’ve learned with time
These days I may be old & grey
But I’m still better than my prime

With the chill of winter settling in
The horizon proves a coming storm
I convince her we need to strip naked
And cuddle to remain warm
Preparing for the long, cold season
Always keeping her flesh within reach
Needing her to bundle me up
Never mind we’re down on the beach Like this: Like Loading...
The subtle perfection
Of being proven wrong Preconceived notions You once held so strong Like this: Like Loading...
We have different moments to emerge
Life telling us uniqueness isn’t enough Parsed moments of steadfast tranquility Rendered improbable when mixed in the slough
But sunshine will eventually return
We’ll rise up beyond the hindered clouds Proving to the world our love conquers Truth & evidence transcend once we get that loud Like this: Like Loading...

Snark doesn’t make you what you want to be
You’re infatuated with being cool throughout Constantly proving your wit for all to see Reality is you’re hiding & putting your soul in doubt Like this: Like Loading...
Don’t look her in the eye
For it might tip your move Just a simple guy With nothing to prove She wants nothing from you & your humble ways Society envies her Stack that against the strays Don’t show her any interest & she’ll question her worth Twisting this back on you Like you’re the last man on earth Keep to yourself Don’t be any more than polite She’ll come calling With a need for you to quench her plight Like this: Like Loading...
I reject most of society’s notions
With no desire to live by the sword
I feel no need to prove myself
I shall put eternal trust in my Lord
I follow my own path these days
Oscar Wilde said I could only be me
A world of distractions & hate
But, only through love can we be free Like this: Like Loading...
I can’t sleep when my mind rattles
Possibility of losing the dream stirs me awake
I need to cherish all we have
Though my poor soul needs a break
Lady, I love you more than words
Prove to me this isn’t a nightmare
That all we have is real & secure
Rouse me from fear; smack my derrière Like this: Like Loading...
The clouds descend upon us
Stress compounding at this time of year Getting darker as the days build Waxing upon the fruition of fear
This world is a bloody hell
A disaster proven before the ink dries Scorn for a distant foundation Futility in which all hope slowly dies
The darkness returns
Looking for a story to wryly begin Miscommunications falter & I wade through my vermouth & gin
