In silence you left me
With unfinished business
I could not address
For you were gone.
In silence you answered me
And the answer was deafening.
In silence you ignored me
As if I didn’t exist
And for you, I didn’t.
In silence my heart mourns
And is left
With a piercing question...
Why?

Time is what I want
To spend with you.
Time is what I don’t have.
Time is what I want to have with you
To shoot the breeze
And just laugh.
Time is what I don’t have.
Time is what I want
To watch your life
To watch you grow
But time is what I don’t have...
Time.

When you finally learn,
When you finally become
Enlightened
You learn that your treasures
Are not built in gold
But in hearts and blood
And the people you love.

Music frees me.
It empties my soul.
It cleans me
And makes me feel whole.
Music inspires me
And moves me.
It’s a joy I can’t control.

When I think of you,
I think of you with love.
When I let go of you,
I feel no hatred and no remorse.
For I loved you and I gave you
My best
But I can no longer be
Your stepping stone.
So I walk away
And leave you to yourself.
And hope when you think of me,
You think of me with love.

I never knew depression
Was worth money.
PTSD pays.
Who knew?
My depression is worth nothing
But this hole in my heart
I can’t climb out of.
But rack up baby.
At least they pay you for the emptiness.
I should of joined the Army
So they could put a price
On my emptiness.

Red is the color of chaos
For me.
Red is the color I see
When I am in a rage with thee.
Red is deception
And confusion.
Red are blood tears I’ve cried
And the pain I feel.
Red is definitely
Not my color.

You are getting closer
But I still can’t touch you.
You are getting closer
Yet so far.
And I taste you
With my eyes.
It’s the closest I can come.
You are forever on my mind,
Love defined.
I think of you
All the time.

I just want to laugh
And mean it.
I just want to hang ten
With you;
Forget about the bad times
And live in this moment.
I just want to let go
And not think.
I just want to feel.
I want to feel good.
And I never want
To come down from my cloud.

Being confined, it took me a long time
To live.
It took me a long time
To be one of you.
So if I seem a little young,
For my age,
It’s only that I’m curious
To finally taste what life is like
And the freedom to reach out
And take a bite.

We used to get together
On the west end,
After work
And just walk
Maybe go to a restaurant.
Those days were full of hope.
Never thought the climb
Would be over.
Never thought we’d reach
That apex.
And then, we’d drink till we were
Drunk.
And make drunk love.
It was raw and at least true.
Decades gone by
And we made it.
It’s so true that phrase ...
It’s lonely at the top.

It just takes a single moment,
A look...
Stopped in time.
I look at those moments
And I remember
Our beautiful times
So sublime.

When I look at you
I see the beauty that you were.
Eyes green like the Bermuda sea,
Raven hair and a smile
That reached your soul.
I loved it when you sang to me
Before I slept.
When I look at you
I see the beauty that you were
In all the lines in your face now
And in the dim of your eyes...
It was your soul all the time.

An ode to my mother.

My hair was wild
When I was young
And full of life.
Now it just hangs there
No matter the weather.
No matter the times
Or life’s confines.
I’m no longer wild.

There are many kinds of pain;
The pain of betrayal,
The pain of slander and lies,
The pain of obscurity,
The pain of loneliness in your eyes.
But the final pain is death,
The loss of you.

I’m loosing my words.
I feel like I’m loosing my mind.
I can take a lot of things
But I can’t take this pain,
Everyday the same
And I miss you.
Can still smell you.
Day after day, it’s all the same.
I can’t tell one day from the other.
I’m loosing my words.
I feel like I’m loosing my mind.

Give me your weary
And give me your poor.
That’s what this country
Stood for,
Not building a wall.
It wasn’t for the rich
And affluent to come here,
Although we welcomed them too, but the men and women
Who had nothing
But a hope and a dream
To build a new life.
A new land for all....
America.
Now she has closed her doors
And looked away.
That which made her great
Is no more.
And I understand there are things to fear and rules
To be made clear.
Yet where did her
Compassion go?
That’s what made her great.

When you loose your love
You can never get that back.
Even if they are
Right in front of you.
It’s like they died.
Say a rosary
And a mass for them.
They are never
Coming back.

You throw people away
Like they are paper dolls.
With no thought of who they were to you.
And I wonder
How you can discard me
Like I’m a paper doll.
When everything you are
Has come from me thus far.

Do I make you feel something?
That’s what counts.
Man fuck my content!
Does it move you?
That’s what counts.

But I’ll always stay

Nows are made up of yesterdays.
And everything we go through,
Everything we live
Becomes just a dream of the past.
Make sure you can smile
At yesterday
So today you can live free.

I thought 2018 was crap
But here comes 2019
To give me the slap.
I’m loosing hope
Fast.
That my life can turn around
This past.
Yet I hold fast...

Any words penned
Will always have meaning
To someone.
The written word
Will never die.
It will go on long after
We are no more.
The power words have!
To out live us all.
Words are the spirits
That drive this world
Of love and hate.
Of endearment
Of hope and bitterness too.
Words carry magic
To transform us,
To uplift us
And to condemn us too.

There is an overflow
Of sadness in me.
The tears run down my face
And I don’t even realize
I cry.
Thee is an overflow
Of happiness in me.
It comes bubbling up
And overwhelms me,
I can’t contain it
And I don’t realize
I laugh.
To feel is better
Than to feel nothing.
This is life.

A woman feeds you
With her body
As you take sustenance
From her.
She feeds you
With her soul
And makes you feel whole.
A woman softens the blows
That this life can bring.
She’s comfort
Like balm on parched skin.
A woman is God’s idea of love.
