Somewhere inside her heart

Beach-Couple-1024x6831-560x373

The weather man predicts today
the clouds above are filled with rain
It’s coming down like falling sand but,
still she’s walking in her kingdom…

a castle built by crashing waves
her eyes of diamonds fill the evening
we’re holding hands
and blocking rain drops
she’s like the stars that never
will depart from a troubled sea
and somewhere in her heart
she believes in me

Her broken mirrors of scattered pieces
reflect my only masterpieces 

she holds the only keys to secret
kingdoms that were meant for me
and heavy hearts with heavy burdens
just fall apart like castles
made for her by the sea 

because somewhere inside her heart
she believes in me ©

The fleeting whisper of the woods

 

I woke up this morning
with thoughts of changing ways

in bitter tongues I spoke the words
I’ve never longed to say

inside the mind that makes it up 
my better angels sleep in bed
awake to speak “another’s gone”
they found my cousin layin’ dead

You know I never saw myself
as anything but livin’
to
tell the truth without them
life could never be the
 same
I walked on by on nights
that kept me hidden from their sadness
now I’m just
 one
without the ones who share my name


And I’m alone inside my head

just singing songs without a band
I know the kids who crashed and burned
the ones we’ve buried with our hands
I know a special little girl
that should’ve
 brought tomorrows smiles
my
hurt was lost out in those woods
and I ride dirt for miles and miles ©

10,000 moments of love



You must have held my hand
I was slipping away
I know you have been 
where my body has laid
I remember your visits
the smell of the flowers
as you spoke of our memories
for hours and hours
Sun shining down
the wind in your hair
longing to hold me 
when I wasn’t there
all by yourself
you never lost class
when loves sun was setting
through physical glass
you had to have been there
when I met my son
wiped tears from your eyes
as you held what we won
Remembering splendor 
of honeymoons past
to the doghouse at sixty
when you discovered my stash
I’m living a new life
just borrowing shoes
to walk me back home
for the love I can't lose
I feel like a man 
that's lived 10,000 lives
and each time I'm within one 
I know you’re my wife  ©

Sweet diamond goodnight

Sweet diamond delight
my dear oh my mother nature
inquisitive to the sensation of touch
my lips just curl cause I love you so much
Star light overlooks my heart felt thought of you
while we share a moon even in your absence
and hopefully in mine
wishing my moon would pull onto your eyes
locking your embrace inside my love
like waves on the ocean
the undertow of my desire pulling you out to me
Rock with me sweet one my only
like dolphins I feel you
if only you will allow my presence
I will know you
When you find trouble
SOS travels through our sea in an instant
like lightning to a thousand glass ballerinas
shattering my tranquility
filling my heart with discontent
Sing to me my love
swim with me deeply
the undertow never losing effect
my love making you wet
in the ocean it will always be
on the surface it’s still only me
I’m waiting to watch an electrical storm to exhale
 I take deep breaths
waiting for the ballerinas to come undone
and I’m waiting to caresse you
beneath our moon
within our ocean
below our sea
just between you and me
You are very loved ©
