Another goodbye

Your soft blonde hair tickles my shoulder

As you get up to leave

Rising so early has become second nature

We have nowhere to go, not for hours

so you smile and return to my side

Our time is spent with quiet jokes and coffee

Yoga poses and talk about skating

That smile…

It’s the first time in so long

that we haven’t hated each other

Hate is all we see sometimes

When I see you

and you see me

We fill a void

and empty place

where there was once a heart

Maybe even love


but not that remains is an empty shell

and the pending arrival

Of another goodbye…

Without You


Falling hard




My soul

My soul cries out

To you





You are so cold

Your soul


So empty

Your soul cries out

to me

to my soul

I can not hear you

I don’t want to hear you

I won’t hear you


Our connection is broken

You’ve damaged us


too much

too far

So far gone

So far away

So far

away from me

away from what we were

and we’ll never return

And my soul is better off without you…


Smile, to think of you…

We could walk together

One thousand lifetimes

Holding hands

Sharing that same smile

and you’ll always return

To the one who has hurt you

Countless times

Continue on your journey, my dearest

Be happy

… if you can

I’ll always smile

to think of you…

Stolen from the sea

You come alive
On the sand
Next to the ocean

Running away so that the waves don’t catch you
Your smile outshines the sun at it’s brightest
Gathering your treasure stolen from the sea

Hand and hand
Smiling but not looking to see
Following the path between the wet and dry

Who are you today?
Do you love me?
Do you hate me?

Is he the one on your mind
making you smile?

It doesn’t matter
It’s my hand you’re holding
My smile you see

As we walk alone
Gathering treasure
Stolen from the sea


Grasping At Straws

I stand on the outer edge of myself and reality

I am unable to wake up and find the same me every morning

Truth is a rule that most people bend

Truth is a lie


Like love and faith

I have great faith

In nothing solid

I walk a gray line

Counting points that only matter to me

Points in time

Time and space are also lies


Lies like forever and serendipity

You were my serendipity

Now you’re a ghost

I stand in a flowing river

The Universe smiles on the person who stands firm in their beliefs

but what do I believe?

What can we believe?

I stand on the edge of reality

and myself

I watch your eyes as I walk across the great decide between us

I watch your face as it awakens to the reality of what we are

and my eyes stay fixed on the skies that cry the truth

but truth is a lie

Like love and faith

You see my face as I awaken to the reality of what we are

What we were

or could become

We part with a wink and smile

Our hearts broken to an idea of what we believed we could be


Lies like forever and serendipity

The truth lies in the eyes of the beholder


The truth lies

and the beholder loosens his grip on reality

and lets go of the nothing that still remains

The nothing is all that’s really there

All that is real is nothing

and I… I stand on the edge of the Universe
