Exhausted

August 24, 2016

Running on empty
Days now without any break
Can’t go much longer

Rut

August 23, 2016

Keep on going
Until the end and back
Never stopping
No time to relax
Where ever I’m going
I keep flying there
No time to worry
Or have a care
In the end
I can’t keep it up
I must slow down
And leave this rut

Subtext

August 22, 2016

Sometimes what we say
Is an illusion
A facade
Trying to hide
The truth
Behind a wall
Of hopes
That things
Will improve
When we all know
That it is what it is
And the words
Bear not the truth
But just the bitter pain
Below their outward charm

Life games

August 21, 2016

Questions come in the dark
Wondering what will leave a mark
Fortune fame or even shame
Life sometimes feels like a game
But to win you must sell your soul
To finish in first, if that’s the goal
If it’s not, I guess we should quit
Before life’s trials give us a fit

With you forever

August 20, 2016

Every day that passes
It doesn’t get easier
But it does start
To feel like life
Will keep on going
If you just hang on
And realize that it’s you
Who gets to carry on
The ephemeral torch
Until it is your turn
To pass it along;
A little brighter.

Next to you

August 19, 2016

Waking next to you
Brings a smile to my face
Grinning ear to ear

Finding you

August 18, 2016

You make this world turn
Every single day I feel it
That absolute love so pure
You turn all my doubt and fear
Into love and joy and happiness
Making the little things feel so big
And the big things feel so right
What would have I done
If I hadn’t have found you
