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.

My Integrity Not Forsaken

Injustice in this world seems to follow me
paid my dues yet it won't let me be
I must rise above this world’s violent ferocity
to a better place so I can be free.
From others trying to keep me down because they lack integrity
undoing their trust by their own duplicity
suffering comes but they won't take away my dignity.
So I pray that I don't become my own worst enemy
drown in the doubt and doubt my own abilities,
but to rise above on wings of reason and sensibility.
Preserving my sense of faith, justice, and morality
away to a life of pleasantness and synchronicity;
as waves of peace wash over me creating placidity,
victorious I've become and my reward is tranquility.

TIme Relinquished

I’m blank and I just can’t
though I wish I could,
even when I try I can’t think;
sometimes it just happens
in a matter of a blink.
I know what I want to say
it’s at the tip of my tongue;
I can taste it though it’s faint,
they say it’s because I’m older now
but I did this even when I was young.

Oh how I wish I could
and I just might;
I need to get up
and I know I should
but it’s such a fight.
As the electronic rooster crows
it tells me what I already know;
it’s getting harder to tell
this reason for my struggle;
I’m too tired or either I can’t hear very well.

I need to, but I don’t have the strength;
extracurricular is harder than you think.
My arch enemy makes it harder each day
if I only could do what I say;
I changed my habits, but it’s not quite enough.
Take my vitamins and supplements
but this losing weight is tough;
no matter what my regiment
time is an inevitable fate;
it’s catching up and will soon overtake.

I’m reminded time and time again
with each morning that I arise;
every glance of my reflection
the lines become more defined.
Realizing I’m further away from perfection
and farther away from the prize;
how in youth we were eagerly inclined
looking forward to another year in time
but as time passes and we get closer to our end;
we realize that time is no longer our friend.

Reluctant Parting

On the warm summer ground I lie,
the azure sky is my canvas.
Memories pass through my mind
putting me in a state of calmness;
and I’ve yet to say goodbye.

In agony, my last tears flow
as warm blood seeps into the ground,
my perpetrator effortless at his craft
no time to even make a sound;
fatal was his decisive blow.

Smelling the grass as I lay on my side
because my better judgment I betrayed;
the air is crisp and clean.
Squinting from the sun’s rays
I wishing this was only a dream.

I’m left to think what could have been;
my heartbeat down to a crawl.
If I had only chosen a different path today;
there’s so much I wanted to say;
and I know exactly where I would begin:

Thank you all though I didn’t convey
the love to me you showed.
I would love to have replied;
but this you will never know since
I’ll never tell you all goodbye.

I’m fading quickly now,
only seconds before I pass.
As I heave in one last sigh,
my heart is no longer beating
and I never got to say goodbye.
