Maybe

20150808_185101~2.jpg

maybe I skip rocks 
in my mind
maybe when I’m close
but far behind
lookin at your face
like lovers should
maybe I’ll be fine
but I’m no good

          …maybe not

maybe we build bridges
from afar
maybe we’ve forgotten
what we are
maybe we see lines 
on golden sands
maybe we hold love
by different hands

         ….maybe not

maybe we will never
start to cry
maybe we have secret
perfect eyes
maybe we know nothing  
as we should
baby I’ll be fine
but I’m not good

           …maybe not  ©

You’re the light of my life

lightmylife

Darlin’ you cool my water
honey you warm my wine
you can make me feel rich
when I ain’t got a dime
when the nights catch me fallin’
you’re the light I can find
darlin’ you cool my water
honey you warm my wine

when I’m runnin’ on empty
cross the highways I’ve found
not a thing to hold onto 
not a damn thing around
you’re the light on the highway
you’re the light of my life
darlin’ you cool my cool water
honey you warm my wine

when I’ve lost my mind worried
when I’m gone for awhile
you’re the love I hold onto
you’re the life in my smile
and I couldn’t deserve you
spend my whole life just tryin’
be the light in your garden
til the end of all time

darlin’ you cool my water
honey you warm my wine
you can make me feel rich
when I ain’t got a dime
when the nights catch me fallin’
you’re the light I can find
darlin’ you cool my water
honey you warm my wine ©

An artist unforgotten

pencil-drawings-of-the-fallen-angel

An artist wild begotten
by an elemental prose
a dancing riled unscripted child
inside forms as a rose
embracing lead stained canvases
she hides her porcelain heart
as petals flow from bandages
her thorns express through art
softer luminescence shadows
beauty un defined

by hand she guides the pencil
drawing love I’ve known as mine ©

I’m gonna fly away

575387_3870735493704_764038628_n

One of these mornings
I’m gonna just fly away
like a bird with no warning
not a word left to say
when the winter has fallen
and the sinner in me
softly hears Jesus calling
honey that’s where I’ll be

It’s a window we look through
in the hearts that we hold
and two ears that wont listen
to the stories we’re told
like the dogs when they’re barking
in the coldness of night
and the eyes of my women
in the love of my life

Don’t you wonder about me
if you’re looking outside
in the nights before morning
when you think you can hide
I’ll be frost on the window
whispering softly I’ll say
don’t you worry about me
love we all fly away

One of these mornings
I’m gonna just fly away
like a bird with no warning
not a word left to say
when the winter has fallen
and the sinner in me
softly hears Jesus calling
honey that’s where I’ll be ©

It seems like you don’t love me anymore

SAMSUNG

It seems like you don’t love me anymore
with your words that cut like knives
each time we speak
trapped inside a painted corner
in those eyes I know as former
memories of what your love
has done for me

It makes no difference
if the love you had is gone
sure by now my eyes
closed
tightly I can see
and in my heart I know its wrong
to be somewhere I don’t belong
where I can see
that you don’t love me anymore

I hope some day
the road your headed
takes a turn

but I’ve grown tired of watching
bridges that you burn
and tonight I’m gonna run
cause I can’t take it anymore
and I can see that you
don’t love me anymore ©

My hearts my own abandoned building

SAMSUNG

My love she’s not so much a mountain as a distance
my adoration’s only written on these walls
but it’s her love that drives with heady slow resistance
as mine relies on lonely shadows where they fall

and I’m just hanging on her doorway softly listening
beneath that street light where she parks it isn’t far
I’m reaching out to see her blue eyes lofty glisten
somewhere tonight so bright and beautiful you are

and so I wait
to hear the whispers on
the stories told to little children
without the fear of pain foregone alone
my hearts my own abandoned building

sweetheart’s divine who finds unwritten letters
awake tonight a diamond shines below her kiss
a foolish game to tell yourself
she’s thinkin’ of me in her sleep
a polished jewel don’t ask a fool for what she’s missed

but still I’ll wait
to hear the whispers on
the stories told to little children
without the fear of pain foregone alone
my hearts my own abandoned building ©


Vacant highways dark of love

You know I’ve melted with a touch
been resurrected from a smile
while lying dead upon your floor
just staying next to you awhile
regarding me I’m in your clutch
apart from stars so far away
I love you darlin’ oh so much
no one will ever take your place

I’m cryin’ for a lovers smile
a taste of walkin’ in her shoes
when my heart is beating red
and my tongue is singin’ blues
I’d never see you walkin’ down
so very far away from me
been forever since a smile
it’s never late to set me free

And I can’t ever see the sun
for love gone wilted in the shade
on these dark highways where I run
or the promises we’ve made
and life keeps flashing’ through the nights
just headlights passing on and on
my lovers crashing somewhere else
tonight I’m lonely cause she’s gone ©
