I've noticed one thing when reading past work.
There's an animal that drove the poets beserk.
It's a reoccuring thing.
And it had the burdens of the world on its wings.
The birds that these men wrote ...
They are the admirals of the skies.
See how triumphantly it flies.
While patrolling coasts.
They proudly boast a presence which you can't deny.
Though some may be a pest.
They always look their best.
I felt like nobody cared.
With me, no secrets were shared.
A lonesome soul was I.
Until I was given the love of a special guy.
Then I could clearly see.
That happiness belongs to me.
Was left by every...
we built Us with a capital U
a treehouse in a blue winter wood
(the one we stumbled upon together
in the dead center of our clasped hands)
you pounded every nail into every board
i tarped a makeshift ...
Waves crash against the shore,
endlessly, forever more.
Each one a twin to a million other,
identical to its next-door brother.
Each wave sings as it passes under the sky,
voice raised in song, though...
A son of man
No; son of sam
Transforming all strife
On a journey through life
Softly, seeking some meaning
Searching and Keening
For someone to lean on
Something to believe in and bond
With some memor...
They say the rose is the flower of romance. That its appearence can put you into a trance. With good reason this fact is known. From the devil's claw it has grown. Do not wonder my thinking unrational...
Can you hear the calling through the woodland maze? The original sound leaves but the echo stays. You follow it through winding trails. Into your heart it deeply impales. Those flaming branches of the...
Shady people lonely nights
Bad days and nothing's right
Rain clouds follow you
No one seems to follow through
With plans made because they're involving you
Something to break you down to make you stro...
Business starts with the waking of the sun.
A few seconds of a breeze and it's already begun.
Hovering over the lake's water and keeping it undisturbed.
I admire the way you let yourself flit and surg...
Meditate for me, that you are internally serene
For a moment; you can allow the chaos to leave
Your mind and your body. Close your eyes,
You’re under an oak tree in midsummer.
Glide your hands through...
On the river bank, they wait like brooding clouds, waiting to rain.
Staring at me with dark, beady eyes penetrating my soul with pain.
They look harmless but I know they want revenge for all of the ju...
I saw myself in the morning mist
as it hovered o'er the lake.
While I watched the vapor vanish,
I realized my fate.
The mist keeps rising skyward,
till it falls in drops of rain
To complete its vital ...
In this life, we are trees, but with new life friends, comes new leaves.
Yes, we’re blown and whirled about, but sun still shines amidst our doubt.
We have roots set deeply in, knowing that we tree ar...
An autumn chill is in the air
Autumn nights are cool and clear…
Leaves are falling to the ground
Gently slowly without sound
Days abate and night grow long
Southward fly the birds of song
The blue jay...
Floating around in an oceanic womb.
Some so deep in the liquid tomb.
Individually invisible to the naked eye.
Until they fall from the sky.
These are the adventures of the water drops.
The sun looks d...
Pass me by and dare you not take a second look.
At the face that held the smile that you took.
Commit me to the ground for the words I've said.
For I know you'd rather see the person who spoke them de...
