The Feeling

Composed 4/30/15
Description: Something short and sweet that just popped into my head. AND amazingly almost caught up with NaPoWriMo!

One day I may have this again.

How blue the sky
How warm my thigh
How lovely, you and I

For Love

Composed 4/30/15
Description: A prayer.

I know what you hope for me
To respect your life, relinquish
I’ll try to stand in quiet reserve
With this, my final wish

Yes, they’re my beliefs
But it’s your soul
And you’re a true friend
So it’s hard to let go

That choice will never be mine
I just pray that you’ll try to seek the divine

Forgive me if I pester
Forgive me if I fret
I long for your eternity
I pray for peace at death

My love for you burns like a scorching summer sun
But one day I hope you’ll see
My love is not the brightest one

Ghosts

Composed 4/29/15
Description: Having a life gets in the way sometimes.

We must be lonely
It’s the nature of the beast
If we are out playing, engaged
Our minds are filled
Our hearts, content
We have no need to explode
On the page

Lives
Anesthetic for the mind
No time, will for introspection
Comprehension of the connotation of our days
We must be lonely
Outsiders
House hiders
Ghost writers

Confidence

Composed 4/28/15
Description: Fallen off the NaPoWriMo bandwagon a little bit. (Late nights with friends get in the way of writing sometimes.) However, I intend to make it up!

With some things I write, I feel there is something distinctly musical about it… This is one of those pieces.

I could drag you home in irons, babe
I could sell myself a god
I could work and flirt and twist you up
With a silver coated tongue
You’d forget your name and play my game
Days and weeks of fun
But you’d be used in the end abused
Myself a hollow, bitter love

Got to keep my eyes onto the skies
Not rolling down your spine
Keep my lips a drip with love
Not lies that falsely fill me up

Doing all the wrong things could get me far
But it wouldn’t get me anywhere
I won’t lose my pride
I won’t lose my soul
I don’t need sweet words to make me whole
The only way to happiness
Is a soft and sure quick confidence
The comes from heart and sky

Just Listening

Composed 4/25/14
Description: n/a

I live through the ears
My eyes       dart
I can pretend
I can plead
If I don’t see their faces
But my heart l o n g s
For true connection
Heat, anger, love, affection
Desires of risk
And my eyes are rapid
Sensors of emotion
My heart a muscle of pure empathy
It hurts to see
Do I live with the pain?
Or die empty?
An outsider
Just
Listening

Luck

Composed 4/24/15
Description: Something that came to me late last night.

Hold your tongue for the helpless
Save your pity for pride
We live murmuring question marks
Praying for fortunate fates
We could be struck down any moment
So why do you shun the grim?
It could be your face
It’s only by grace you can walk past
But don’t
Don’t let your lips snarl
You can only pull them up
You can fall at anytime

The Siren

Composed 4/23/15
Description: Something a little different. A short tale.

He gave his heart up freely
To any stranger with a smile
His shirt, his watch, his well-worn hands
Were theirs after awhile

A phony chance encounter
Led him into harpy claws
He could never see the ugly
Only hear a beauty’s song

But this knight in shining armor
Had a princess at his side
Who saw through the illusion
With a stare like sharpened knives

Brandished sword then skewered
Screeching siren through the throat
The song that once had lured
Broke with last unholy note

Sorrowful, indeed, but the knight would love again
His nature, sweet and flowing, still yet vulnerable to sin

But a friend he’d always have
A royal, watchful eye
Protector, friend, comforter
For both each one would die

In Vain, Perhaps, I Wait

Composed 4/22/15
Description: For Day 21 of NaPoWriMo.

All I’ve got are roots and stems
Grown in deep though I long to move
A few leaves pop
Practical, survival
There’s a few, small, budding blooms
Yet I fret
Have I watered enough?
Did I even plant in a suitable place?
I try to wait for those buds to bloom
But the frost is coming
So I sigh
And pace
Will I ever see rewards?
Color from the toil of my hands?
I fear the sun will never come
I’ll starve
Or burn

Vertigo

Composed 4/20/15
Description: Happy 420! Here’s a little tortured romance for you.

When I breathe you in I feel no pain
My muscles melt inside my skin
Intoxicated, I float through days
Longing for your heavy musk
Your effect binds and
Fills every corner of me spilling
Out my pores like perfume
And I’m starving
The more I see you
The longer I taste
The harder the high is to shake
You’re illicit, you’re poison
And I can’t fight
I’ll drown inside clouds of smoke
I’ll cling, choke until
I’m pried away
Until you toss me away
