Once again, I wake

                      On this game called life.

          Car rides and summer
Drives down the beach harboring
          The neighborhood kids.

                              JD

*Memories*
The station wagon would literally be filled with as many neighborhood kids as could fit in the car for the long drive to Sandy Hook (no seat belts needed or available). This was a constant to our summers and the kids would fight each time to see which ones were lucky enough to go that time #beach #summer #friends

I've spent
The last month
Wavering
Between guilt
And justification
For the life of me
I cannot decide
Which is the truth
Or how I should feel
     Maybe it is time
     To let myself
     Off of the hook
     And negotiate
     A compromise
     That will set
     Both my mind
     And his spirit free.

In an early morning tryst

He says he hates me
       Morns spent grudgingly dancing
                    To lyrics that lie.

Sometimes the desire
To disappear is so great
And I long
To just sail away
To a place
Where nobody knows me
And nobody cares
Where I can start my life
All over again
And be
Whoever it is
That I want to be.     JD

                        It is impossible
                                     To finish
When you're counting stars.

                    
                    
        But just like
        Everything else
        In life
        The challenge
        Is to try.

*Reservation For Two*


           I found sanctuary
                   In his touch
             And I hungered
                        To linger
                   In his scent
So I made a reservation
                   Beside him
                   For forever.

Nothing compares to

*Silence*
This can pertain to any type of loss. And the silence can be deafening.

     Drowning
     Does not discriminate
     Pretty pools and violent seas
     Are both
     Readily available
     And equally inviting
     Or like me,
     One can simply drown
     Within one's self
     Never to return
     To whom
     They once were.           JD

     Appearances are
Deceiving; truth is, we all
   Have an ugly side.    JD

*Human*
We may not show it all the time (or even ever, for that matter), but no matter how beautiful we appear, at least once, we have all had an ugly thought or two - it's what makes us human

      The air was thick
      And the heat
      Was unbearable
      As I stood there waiting
      On the platform
      I was anxious
      Not knowing what to expect
      After so much time
      Had passed
      I made a wish for happiness
      And a peaceful surrender
      Upon a falling star
      Only to realize too late
      That it was just
      A passing firefly
      Leaving me to hope
      That it wasn't a sign
      Of things to come
      Once you stepped off of
      That midnight train.            JD
