Our Home, Ninovan

Our Home, Ninovan

April 15, 2018

Your majesty can not be defined. Gliding through the air with wind under your feathers. Unafraid Your world has been taken over Two legged creatures destroyed the home you knew from birth For what? Paper they will write their inadequate dreams upon then discard. You deserve better. You deserve...

BLUE 

BLUE 

April 1, 2018

I saw her today, with her lace white dress and those tie up sandals I saw her today with her brown hair and perfect skin Yes I saw her today, the one that took you away The feeling of being blue was played in my mind as an emotion I close my eyes and I see you standing there in those skin-tight jeans...

Lost in the winds of the gyre inside my mind… Ever tightening never ending Down                 Down                                 Down                 I go senseless beaten and battered my thoughts are like a noose spiraling-- every thought another breath stolen   ...

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...

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

March 22, 2018

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

March 22, 2018

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...
