Solid Foundations


Darling we will continue to stand beside you every step of the way, but you need to believe us when we tell you things like "be careful" and "not now."

Heartbeats Too Long Deferred


Someday in the coming age
     I hope to soar --
to fly like a bird
     and know my voice is heard.

Sometime soon in the coming weeks
     it'd mean a lot to me
just to find others
     ready to share my dream.

Something's coming soon --
     a change of ways,
a birth of days --
     listen well, I'll be back.

Ready to share my verse
     like a bird.
A nighting gale
      to be precise.

But should this song be forgotten
      with the coming tide
I'll understand these cobalt skies
       and find a hole to reside.

And as broken as my wings may be
       Darling, remember me please.
Always growing and moving on,
     listen still for my song.

As the sun sets and stars shine
    you and I will crawl more
whispering how it's not our time.

                   Knowing full well, we'll sing never. . . 

Pictures Carved Upon a Heart


Maybe your name is just lint in my pocket that doesn't get removed 'cause the dryer is too full. And I guess that you could just be a face sitting in the foam of my third cappuccino today.

Perhaps you're just another scar that won't have the time to fade in this life.

Lava Coated Flocks Fly Too Far South


Darling, you've always been sweet to me, but Anarchy's running through your veins. Now somehow you make an even worse friend than me. And it's time to migrate to place than the equator.

Creamy Mocha Cip


Let’s have an ice cream love.



The kind that makes summer 
a bit more sweet and helps
survive the heat - you know

the kind that melts under
the sun and freezes beneath
the glory of the moon.

Let’s have an ice cream love. 

And prove that it’s just
as good in December 
as June and July.

We can be any flavor 
you want and served 
in cup or cone, but

Let’s have an ice cream love.

Children Learning to Count Doodle Problems Out


Darling, there's nothing wrong with having an imagination - or using it every day.

So keep creating, even with mistakes you can't go wrong.

No Where Left but Up


You are the only reason I've ever prayed to your so-called god.

It's just that you were so far beyond hope you couldn't do it yourself.

Disbelief in prayer stuck with me.

Ubiquity and Loneliness


You are everywhere and no where all at once.

You are the reason I've chosen ghosts over humanity for years now.

Gone So Long


Sometimes I roll names, I've never even known, around on my tongue - just to see how they taste.

Others I say your name ten times them measure my toxin levels to see if you're getting better or worse for me.

Breaking the Monotony


Sweetheart, you're a story everyone knows already.

If you want me to tell your's to attentive ears, you have to let me tell the truth.

Stocking up on Smiles


In case you haven't been able to catch on, this time around we're all just trying to get on our feet so we can walk across the field in a few weeks.

Some 5 x 7s and a Couple Stamps


Let's have a postcard love where shorthand means more than long, rambling letters ever could.

Let's go to thrift stores and by out-dated postcards from the eras we lived in previous lives.

Let's love like this for years, never knowing the true warmth of the other and then "bump" into each other in an airport.

Let's see the world through the eyes of a stranger and learn just how comforting simple post cards can be.

Let's fall in love again with every stamp we buy.

Let's have a postcard love and be happier than ever before.

Godspeed, Darling


Perhaps there is darkness ahead, and maybe the shadows are a bit too off-putting, but continue to journey forth and I promise your time will all be worth it.

Godspeed, Darling.

Soul Dancing


Coloring soothes the soul, just know that you can be just as peaceful as ever without ever having touched a crayon.

Rose Petals on the Breeze


Just so you know, if you're only O.K. when you're with someone else, you're not really okay.

Something's Gotcha Down


I'd love to tell you to just get up
and move on,
but we both know it doesn't work that way.

If I could, I'd explain why
this won't work
only the words sound too funny coming out.

And I'd assure you everything's okay -
East of Melancholy,
although it appears as though we need to go West.

This will not be remembered as
your strongest hour
but your most brave moment, instead -

That's what matters.

With Love, Semi-Colon


I'd like you to know that if it weren't for your voice filling my headphones with hope I wouldn't have been around the other day to even know you were in town. Thank you for believing in everyone you meet.

Like Cherry Blossoms Not Roses


If you're so scared of losing them you should practice growing with them.

Instead of away.

Bad Rep Means Nothing


Everyone likes to think that a wolf in sheep's clothing is a bastard acting for his own good. You don't have to feel ashamed, you can just be in awe of a world that isn't yours.

It's okay to wanna be something you're not.
