Me


ME

Here I am in my entirety
The story that burns inside of me
Flaws revealed
Every layer of the onion pealed

I have told you of my past
Feelings I have had
My hopes and ambitions
My life’s mission

Read these words, they pour from my soul
These words are my warmth in the cold
This isn’t just poetry
This is the beginning to knowing me

A man who lust for knowledge
Desire’s a certain intellectual prowess
I want to speak and move people
Make the walls of the hardest souls seem feeble

I can not leave this earth
Without delivering my true worth
So please, I beg you to read
These words are what my heart bleeds

Love… I Wish I Knew You


Love… I Wish I Knew You

I wish I knew you
Our time together, much too brief
For me to say I know you or you know me
I’m grateful for every moment we have shared
Time becomes an enemy when you are there
If rubbing the lamp could bring you I’d need only one wish
The other two I’d pass along, I’d have everything I wanted in this
Sadly even in movies you can’t be wished for
I know I could have you if I just opened the door
But I can not find the key
Well at least not for me

Fifty Two


Fifty Two

A single tear slowly makes it’s way down my face
I secretly accept it’s warm embrace
It’s journey reminds me that trouble won’t last always
See, that lone tear is the last of many I have cried
The others have come, fallen, and dried
A walk to the mirror lets me know I’m still here, still alive
Grateful I stand
For trouble and pain has taken many a good man
I look again at my hand
Prepared to play what I have been dealt
I know the greatest opponent I will ever face is self
A whisper to God “I may need a little help”

You Stole the Music


YOU STOLE THE MUSIC

As tears begin to pour
I start to wonder who this was written for
Invoking the memories of pain
This song screams your name
Will music ever be the same
Am I now for ever cursed
Remembering the pain through every verse
Will your song ever end
So that my life can begin
I wish I could love music again
Instead i listen to ever song remind of you
As I sing words that feel so true
For the world I pretend
That it’s only a song, all the while dying within
