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.


A different three words

January 26, 2015

I’m done.
I’m done.
I’m done.
I’m done.
I’m done.
We’re done.

Music Box

December 17, 2014

The sweet sound
Of you unwinding
And finding the silence
Of equilibrium
The stress in your spring
Slowly going out
Releasing a melodic purr
Alas, once serenity is found
There is no more sweet soft sound
So wind you up again I do
Until one day
Your spring will break
And I’ll never hear
Your sweet music again.

Web of Lies

June 10, 2014

A mountain view
Of an empty world
An ocean here
And between our hearts
A painful moment
For you, not I
A love lost in lust
Now don’t you cry
A moment sooner
You would have seen
That this wasn’t what
It should have been
But a moment later
When you realized
Our hearts were entangled
In a web of lies.

I Still Remember You

January 8, 2014

I still remember sunshine
Even as skies fade to grey.
I still remember our time
Even as it slowly slips away.
I still remember living
Even as death grips me.
I still remember forgiving
Even as you run free.
I still remember a heartbeat
Even as I am drowning.
I still remember our meet
Even when I’m frowning.
I still remember you.

Old Letters

December 27, 2013

Reading old letters
Opening old memories
A dark spiral
Down down down
Into where
I used to be
Never happy
But oh so free
Suitor and pursued
Unsure where to go
Those words
They remember
All the chances
All the failures
But never the success
Only heartbreak
And heartache
So sad what was
And always will be
Apologies and agony
Caught forever
Inky and sad
Never forget
What was once had.

Final Time

August 9, 2012

Life and love run a mess
Cannot stop this final test
Hurt and pain build so fast
Never knew this wouldn’t last

Fought so hard when I could
Stopped when I thought I should
Trick of words and of mind
Never thought you hated my kind

Foolish still my way with words
Floating higher than the birds
You never saw what I meant
I wish I could just repent

But in the end it was meant to be
At last I really truly see
What we did could never work
Sorry I was such a jerk.
