You can gain a few hundred thousand followers
And become nobody
Learn how to talk the talk
But never know the language
Move like you know the dance
Without feeling the music
Talent is a gift
As well as a currency
What you feed
May become what you eat

Being with you
Redefines
Every goddamn word of affection
Making me feel like a tabula rasa
Yet profoundly tender towards your essence
And being in love with you
Makes me question the definitions
Of words
That alone
Can’t explain
The administration
I have for you

So much confusion in the world
It’s just another way
To a brand new day
But instead of looking for
A brand new day
Perhaps it’s time
To rethink our ways
Maybe we don’t have to
Find anything
Because I don’t know about you
But anything from nothing
Is a magic
I don’t have
Although something
From everything
Now that’s a magic
That we all can give

i wish i could be
one of those
i’d give you anything
kind of pop song
wannabes
or have their influence
that at times
works miracles
but i can’t control
the seasons
under this sky
nor can i sing on demand
i will not always
have an answer
and the odds are
my answer may be
incorrect
but darling
anything
of best and worst
you’ll always have
my everything

A world of uncertainties
New burdens
Carry the horizon
More dirt for the knees
Heavier loads for the backs
Cry the tears
And rip off the skin
For there’s something about it all
That will say
Something about us all

It’s the ups and downs
The all arounds
Every street corner
Every country mile
Spin, spinning into the spiral
Time is nothing more
Than what we have
Between the hands
Seconds make minutes
Minutes serve hours
Hours fill the days
Although it’s not exactly
What fills our cups
But how we feel
Within the hands of time
Perhaps
Fill and feel
Is all time is made up of
And perhaps
It’s up to us
To serve

an instaworld
got you starving
a lackluster product
got you ill
yet calling it skills
will never fill a quicksand heart
nor will it feed your soul
perhaps it is time
to be more than
what you are supposed to be
and become
who you are

I’ve known a lot of people
Hiding their faces
Chasing the blame
Covering up names
Like cities lost to their streets

Recalling the fame
Was never the framework
Blueprinting the universe
Stars last longer than fireworks
Yet they all fizzle out
After the boom

I’ve known a lot of people
Hiding their faces
Like their streets
Have no names

there's a lot wrong
with a lot of things
that's a wore out song
lost in the verse
reverse
loop
too many singers
memorizing the chorus
but where is the meaning
beyond the the known
a whole lot of words
that take a little time
stuck with situations
not even trying for a solution

perhaps
my voice
has been more than
my own
because
of stars and scars
they all burn
differently
connecting the dots
or tearing the seams
but perhaps
a voice
is more than
what could be said

Sometimes it's hard to say
What words could explain
As the languages of heaven and earth
Speak through the heart and soul
A flowing enlightenment
Without a sound
Softly whispered
In the movement of the moments
Entangled within the breaths
Perhaps this is where you learn
Your voice is loudest
When carried through your actions

out of all the places
and wonders
that i could experience
i choose you
for all the things
to not merely experience
but to explore
to be held accountable
for a life
should be full of living
and darling
i want to life with you

It is not what inspires you to write.
Nor is it exactly what you write.
Poetry is what you see,
what you feel,
what you find...
When the poem is done.
Keep digging,
keep climbing,
keep going.
Because treasures are seldomly found;
because treasures are made.

i am unapologetic
and reckless
within my own existence
fragile
yet driven
but i am not without care
because i know
that i don't know
for this i am sorry
because whatever
you’re battling
or for whatever
you can’t believe in yourself
i know
there's always someone
or something else
to blame

i’ve slept under the stars
and danced in the rain
i’ve been lost
not trying to find anything
i’ve traveled miles
to the roads end
just to begin
but i have to say
darling
the best adventure
i’ve ever stumbled upon
is found within your eyes
a spirit of life
that has always given me hope
for the places i can’t see
that you’ve always
taken me

trying to express, explain something. that is written within my heart. as it spreads, throughout my soul. dancing naked upon the thoughts of you. it can be seen in the steps of my walk. as my mind goes wild. trying to keep up with my heart and soul. all crazy about you, a lady so fine. i can not even find the words to define. exactly what, you do to me. it is the best kind of crazy. i have ever known. pure, and wild… as i come undone beautifully within butterflies, and these smiles. my soul dances upon these words. written within my heart… for yours.

a gentle amount of madness
a special mixture of nonsense
an elixir of my chaos
poetically engineered
from the scars
that shine like stars
from my eyes
my heart and soul
are meant to be felt
as i bleed out
the truth within ruins
once known as my mind
needing to be explored
exposed
and unraveled
for what i hold inside

for the first time in my life
i wish i could write
some of those
pretty bullshit lines
call it poetry
let it flow
but all i have
are these eyes full of tears
as my soul sheds
diamonds
falling like rain
from my eyes
precious pains
of my heart
overflowing
and growing
because
goddamn
it has taken me a lifetime
to feel alive
beyond the poetry
and the pretty bullshit
or is that petty
calling something pretty
so perhaps i wish i could write
some of those
pretty bullshit lines
to try and describe
a beauty
now alive in me
perhaps in time
i will find the words
to your beautiful

they may not mean much

we surely can feel

​waking with a setting sun 
have i forgotten 
why i was given this day 
for even within the silence 
that surrounds me 
most of my days 
i still carry a voice 
screaming deep down within me 
capable of piercing through 
the silence 
found within my days 
so i’m going to sing 
and if you can find your voice 
would you please 
sing your song too

Calculating beyond my surroundings
It's been more than
Where I've been
Or where I could go
Perhaps it's where
I am
Throwing out game plans
Because it's never been a game
We all lose
Without an end
And that is how it begins
I can make it from here to there
Without even putting it all together
Although
I've always calculated
On my feet
While being held on my back

I can't say what is
Right or wrong
All I know is that
I'm singing this song
Line after line
Subtracting the chorus
Rearranging the verses
Nothing sounds the same
Yet at times
The words
Are all the same
Joy to scars
And turn it around
Redefining the stars
Is all in our hearts
A match to be made
With fire...

there never was
much to a kiss
until a kiss
brewed through my veins
rattling my bones
as the flavor
saturated my soul
i never thought
much of a kiss
until a kiss
carried the flavor
of you
through my soul

keep the simple
within the spaces between
dances of the rain
the storm in the veins
laying the thoughts down
to give moments
more than what can be taken
flow like eddies
upon the riptide
somewhere between
pulling you
and pushing me

neck deep in the mess
lungs compress
while stars crash into the dirt
spinning around
wanderlust in breaths
you can't afford to miss
nor can you afford to keep
it all rattles
falling to reach beyond
up or down
grasping
gasping
what we have to touch
can't always
be held in our hands
