A secret that went untold  

A secret that went untold

I wanna know why her Was it because she was better than me? Was it because you liked her more? You see you don’t just get to taunt with peoples' feelings.... I can see myself closing my eyes and pulling that trigger... The trigger that sent me into this mania.... Because you chose her... 3 years of loving...

A Leaf

A Leaf

March 23, 2018

A leaf Stain in the napkin We sit around the table Wasn’t aware of time It slipped through the footprints of the brook We dance Above a leaf Clinging to it We drift down along the brook And return to the sea Where the waves embrace us Standing in a leaf We sail to nowhere   ...

Love Carried On

Love Carried On

March 22, 2018

It’s warm today. Wind barely blowing. And I thought of you. This time it’s different. Difficult. I still smile. I still laugh like the joke was just heard. As if, it was a dream. Wish it was all make believe. But it’s not. I’m reminded that this feeling is all I have to hold on to. More or less bi...

Just Call Your Mom, Just Call Your Dad

Just Call Your Mom, Just Call Your Dad

March 22, 2018

When you’re depressed, your mind is gone, You’re all alone on a battlefield, Don’t be afraid, just call your mom She'll make you feel relieved. When life seems hard, when you feel bad, And there’s no powers left to fight, Just pick a phone and call your dad No matter: day or night. If mood is dark and ...

When Time Stands Still

When Time Stands Still

When time stands still Will we be locked in this moment forever? With this string attached to our hearts Over miles and miles away. When time stands still Can my soul race back to you To stand still in time forever With you.  ...

Here I Sit

Here I Sit

March 22, 2018

  Here I Sit as the jay bird beckons from a distance that makes his sweet song barely audible. Wind kisses my arms and legs, with her sweet lips she brings cool Air that rushes over you. Leaving your body replenished from the smoldering heat. Sunlight pours over the roof of the house casting down its glory ont...

First Loves

First Loves

March 22, 2018

When I see you I melt  it’s the strongest thing I’ve ever felt  The way you make me feel  it’s so unreal The thought of you being my first  makes my insides burst  But I want you to carry me through the door  of our home  where we never have to be alone    ...

Flood

Flood

It won’t stop raining Rain beats against the tin roof Sounds like it’s going to cave It isn’t strong enough to hold It will flood The water keeps rising Worry rushes over me Soon it will come through the front door I won’t be able to stop it It will flood Daddy always use to say Everything is going to be ok He w...

Why’d I let you hurt me again You said you were gonna be there ‘til the end Everyone tells me to leave you alone that I’m better off when you’re gone But I can’t let go of you Because my love for you is true Love isn’t supposed to feel this way We fight all the time, all day I just need a...

The Place

The Place

March 22, 2018

I'll tell you, guys, about a place Where there's no evil, only good, Where there are warm and sunny days, And skies are luminous and blue. I love that place, I miss that place, But there's no way to make it there, I still keep praying for the best, And hope to visit it someday. I'll tell you, guys, about a place,...

(mostly,) when Sisyphus was pushing the rock his hands would sting and his bones would start to ache and in those moments he'd be too tired to keep going and let the rock roll   down while he was still far away from the top   the first time this happened Sisyphus fell to his knees...
