Just Imagine Who We Could Be

Just Imagine Who We Could Be

Imagine if you could truly love me.

Look into my eyes, not away.

Imagine the love there could be.

If we were in step, not a step away.

If words didn’t matter.

Not hurled in pain.

Not spattered.

In vain.

If I could close my eyes.

Bring back yesterday.

I would,

If I could.

Yesterday I could breath.

Today pressed lips,

Suffocate my soul.

Frequent sips,

From my glass of despair.

Pour the sadness,

Repeat the madness.

Just imagine.

If you could look at me.

The love there could be.

Imagine who we could be.

When You Can’t Love Enough

Embrace the emptiness.

It’s all around you.

It fills the room.

And leaves you foolish,

And afraid.

Uncertain for the first time,

Not the last.

Sadness all of a sudden,

Surrounds you,

All around you.

You can’t love enough!

You can’t embrace,

What’s already broken.

Pick up the pieces,

Already there.

Words unspoken,

We still share.

Hope.

Anguish.

Tears.

Anger.

Despair.

Us.

When love’s not enough,

I’m still here.

I’ll be there.

Find your way back,

Back to me.

All You Had To Do

Quiet smile stuttered,

Words worn thin.

Spinning me out of control.

Away from you.

Wearing away my soul.

Quiet ears shuttered,

The storm came in.

Wave upon wave,

You’re so right, you’re wrong.

Smiling on my rain.

Quiet eyes fluttered.

Shadows can’t hide sin.

Closing in on me,

Can’t you see?

Blind to my pain.

Hear the ripple in the room.

That is you stirring me.

Spinning me out of control.

Wearing away my soul.

When all you had to do,

Was love me.

There’s Always Somehow

Time for a chew toy

R.I.P. Cody Bear

It’s too often now,
Sleep won’t allow.
Living life,
Eyes wide open into the night.
And Cody’s forever stare.
Dawn brings to light.
The day in spite.
Sins forgiven.
Love lifts the soul,
The dice will roll.
And steals the past.
Each day maybe the last.
Let’s give a hug,
To those we love,
For each moment we share,
There’s always somehow.
There’s always Cody Bear.

I Can’t See Your Eyes

You’re just a dream I had.
On an empty night.
Far from yesterday.
Far from the light.
Far from today.

I can’t see your eyes,
In mine.
I can’t taste your lips,
On mine.

I’m going to lose you.
Another chink in my armor.
Another day away from you.
My anchor.
One day closer,
To losing you.

I can’t see your eyes,
In mine.
I can’t taste your lips,
On mine.

You’re the ship that never sailed.
I’m  that sinking feeling, I’ve failed!
I’m drifting out to sea.
Your love’s slipping.
Slipping away from me.

I can’t see your eyes,
In mine.
I can’t taste your lips,
On mine.

You’re just a dream I had.
On an empty night.
Far from yesterday.
Far from the light.
Far from today.

I can’t wake to another day,
Without you.
I’m drifting away
No tomorrows.
Just a dream away.

Me.

Life is the Noose

Untethered

Tethered in time,
The curtains rise.
Your cast in a role.
A roll of the dice.
Bound by a lifeline,
Twists and turns.
Twisted in knots,
Life is the noose.
So many loves,
So many lives.
Love set me loose,
I’m begging you!
So many thrills.
So many spills.
Life is the noose.
So many tries,
So many fails.
Love set me loose,
I’m begging you!
Heart strings pulled.
Love hangs by a thread.
I can’t breathe.
Love can’t be dead.
Love set me free.
Life is a noose.
Love set me loose,
I’m begging you!
Go to black.
Curtain closes.

Me

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on. ~ Thomas Jefferson.

Two Faces

Sunrise Bar Harbor

Sunrise Bar Harbor

Two faces.
One and the same,
One’s for fame.
One’s for shame.
One plays a part,
One pulls us apart.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Your reflection tells it all.
The pain on your face,
Still leaves a trace.
One turns a blind eye,
One lives a lie.

Two faces,
One hides the strain.
One feels the pain.
One will let it ride,
One will run and hide,

From the fear within.
One will grin.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Your reflection tells it all.
One draws me in,
One makes me sin.
One makes me shout.
One leaves me out.

Two faces
Words, one will fear.
Words, no one will hear.
One leaves me out in the rain.
One leaves me all your pain.
One life’s open behind closed doors.
One can’t take life anymore!

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I’m happy to take the fall.
Still here to pick-up the pieces.
Still here when love’s not that easy.
Still here when life’s wiped your smile away.
Too late to love you any other way.
