Do You Know a Moon’s Sorrow

Do you know a moon’s sorrow?
When shrouded by brooding clouds
as thunder and lightning cry out
masking the glory of its brilliant light?

Its luminance not even that of a firefly,
nature’s night light hanging in desperation;
desperate for some kind of cooperation
but this night the tempest just won’t comply.

Hours pass without an admiring fixation,
regretfully the satellite resigns and succumbs.
Pushed aside from the cyclic rotation;
swallowed up by the brilliance of the sun.

Cemented Dreams

The window of my soul
peak through vinyl ladders;
sunbeam dreams
keep me mesmerized
though the view
is just out of my reach.

A wistful longing, deep
from within, for what
I don’t even know;
if only the window of
my soul would open up
wouldn’t you know, it’s stuck.

A Stinging Rain

I see you in my memory;
it keeps replaying over and over
and I can’t break away as I keep
coming back to that cold and rainy day.

A water crescendo falling outside of my window,
drowning out the pain I can’t hide
but not the water shed of tears that hit the floor;
all alone as I hear you slam the front door.

The wheels keep turning in my brain
wondering where exactly we went wrong;
seeing you leave in the pouring rain
realizing the love was gone all along.

Running outside in the torrential rain
like a fool hoping against all hope;
praying that you’ll look back and turn around
but inside I know I’ll never see you again.

I’m wet, cold, and chilled to the bone
I don’t want to go inside, but I can’t stay here
in the middle of the road –  but you’re not
coming back – this much is clear.

Rainy days leave me feeling melancholy;
it takes me back every now and again
when I hear the patter on my window pane,
I painfully realize I no longer have anybody.

Color Negative

Looking out among the waves of doubt,
I try to muster up optimism but
I’m swallowed up by a sea of uncertainty;
wave after wave it’s seems relentless
and it feels like I’m drowning.

It seems my joyous outlook has been broken;
never did I think I would have ever succumbed,
but I’m older now and with it creeps self doubt.
Even though wiser, this world is more unstable
and because of it, so has become my life.

Even the simple things of life seem out of my reach;
I know they’re out there but no longer seem attainable.
The sun reminds me of my past happiness and
every day I live reminds me of how far removed I am
from it and the shaky ground my life is on.

Life is so beautiful and at the same time so cruel;
I know this isn’t what life is supposed to be but if you
live long enough you will be a victor and a victim.
So if I end up with nothing at the end, despite my faith,
I know in the end I will have conquered everything.

You

I'm going to love you more than anyone else,
I'm going to love you even when you're not yourself.
All your hopes and fears sweetheart we'll conquer together
don't say a thing, just lay your head on my chest;
give yourself to me and I'll take care of the rest.
You are the source of my joy, you light my fire within,
you are the life I breathe and you make me whole again.
When I'm down I'm not there for long,
because you fortify me with your gentle reasonings;
your melodious tones are like a song
soothing my soul with your soulful seasonings.
What more can I do, I just want to be your everything;
you touch me without touching me at all
affecting my very being, I'll never be the same;
you are in my heart no matter how near or how far.
So just let me say this just one more time;
I'm going to love you more than anyone else,
I'm going to love you even when you're not yourself.
All your hopes and fears we'll conquer together
don't say a thing, just lay your head on my chest;
give yourself to me and I'll take care of the rest.

Sweet Addiction

You deceived me to my own detriment;
though oh such a sweet odor, I couldn't resist.
Consumed by blinded passion I'm immersed
in to feelings of euphoria waiting for my misery.

Time stands still or is it just my denial?
The former of I’m convinced until I’m betrayed
by the stinging chill of rejection that hits like a tsunami
and I’m floored as I feel the power of your rejection.

You mock me and I’m nothing but helpless
though you always lead me on thinking it will
be different; but again I agonize on why I
always let you get the best of me.

Oh the addiction that you are to me!
It seems I can’t break free from your salacious
appeal – but I can no longer indulge for you
betray me every single time – this is goodbye.

Cold turkey is my only salvation; I can’t
bring myself to indulge though thoughts
of you make me salivate – out of my life
forever and for me no more sleepless nights.

Glen Rose State Park

Glen Rose State Park.”
 “Dinosaurs.”
“Dinosaurs?”
Glen Rose State Park?”

“Yes. Glen Rose State Park.”
“Dinosaurs.”
“Ready?”
“Yes!” you replied; “Let’s go!”

Off to the Texas Hill County
To see where the dinosaurs
Once roamed, 113 million years ago.

“This is a National Natural Landmark.”
I mentioned to you. “Because of their
footsteps being preserved in limestone,
sandstones and mudstones deposits.”

We went down to the riverbed
to searched for their presence
that occurred so long ago.

An impressionable young girl
you enjoyed the moment;
though lamenting the dinosaurs’ fate.

And just like those dinosaurs
our relationship unfortunately
became extinct; though the moment
forever etched in my memory.
