Seventeen minutes

May 25, 2015

Seventeen minutes
What can be done?
I know you are leaving
And nobody’s won.
Seventeen minutes
What can be said?
I know you are leaving
I’m alone in this bed.
Seventeen minutes
What can we change?
I know you are leaving
It feels to me strange.
Seventeen minutes
What can we do?
I know you gave up
I guess I did too.

Ramble and ramble
Like you care
Push along
Like you’re aware
Fight and fight
To no avail
Work so hard
Just to fail

Life in the city

May 23, 2015

The city calls
Like a hurricane wind
Blowing across empty fields
Pulling me in
To see it’s hidden treasures
And to explore what it has to show
But it also traps me in
Like a one-way door
Into the oblivion
Like so many others
Afraid to leave for it has become me

It’s Okay to ask

May 22, 2015

Her mind closed
The day he said
It was destiny.
For she believed
All he said
Must be fallacy.
She didn’t think
There was a God
Up in the sky.
He didn’t know
It was okay
To really question why.

Having you be there
Makes the worst days feel just fine
Than you beautiful

Remembering to Forget

May 20, 2015

Sleepless nights
Spent alone
Always wondering
If she will phone
Never knowing
Why I’m alone
Wishing and wishing
You’d come home
Everything is just
Too unknown

One night

May 19, 2015

Late night filled with lust
Forgotten morning; no love
Such misplaced trust
