I Miss Our Love (08.24.12)

I miss our barren desert
With nothing to quench our thirst,
Where there was maybe one
Tree to sit beneath
And read quietly to ourselves
With a few bare branches
And only one lonely leaf
To catch the sunshine.

I miss that clock without hands
When hours passed blindly,
While our heads laid in bed
Sunk beneath pillows
And our bodies twisted
Together beneath sheets
Like a candy cane
Glued together with sugar,
So sweet, so sweet
We rotted our teeth.

“Good morning beautiful girl,
Let’s never let this end.”
And we tried our best,
We tried to make it last.
Like those last few pages
Of a really great book,
We read slower and slower,
As we knew we were hooked.

I miss that hole we dug together
Digging day and night
Every night and every day,
Deeper and deeper,
Darker and darker,
But always together.
Dirt piled high from side to side
I’m not really sure
What we were trying to hide.

I miss our hopeless love,
Our naivete and passion,
We both always knew
That we’d never get better,
But at least we knew
We were always together.

Love and Hate (05.22.06)

I’m afraid to breathe
With the air so infected with jealousy

Love and hate

Hate is my best friend
While love is my worst enemy

It makes too much sense
For me to comprehend

I want to take this so much further
Than under covers on your bed
And maybe a little further
Than just pictures in your head

Can I be your lucky number?
Can I be the pillow on which you sleep?
Love and hate
I hate and I love

And to be brutally honest,
I love more than hate

Because all of a sudden,
It’s all about you darling,
It’s all about you.

One Sweet Dream (08.01.12)

My heart, it beats right through my eyes,
Burning with desire and all that lies
Beneath your skin, much softer than mine
So soft it seems, to slow down time

Heart to heart and hips to hips,
Down your sides, run my fingertips
Feel the heat, the sweet smell of sweat
As we grow entangled the closer we get

Skin to skin and lips to lips
Down my sides, run your fingertips
Taste the salt and hear the rain
With nothing to lose and all to gain

Face to face we share our lives
We come together like twisting twine
Sharing our strength and so much more
But what, I ask, is all this for?

It’s just a dream; I’ve had of you,
A dream, it seems, will never do
Maybe I’m just, a sunlight gleam,
But I’ll keep dreaming, this one sweet dream.

Where the Angels Hide (01.17.11)

One day my love said unto me,
“When we pass and come to be,
I want you there right by my side,
Up in the clouds where the angels hide.”

When we do, I want to be there
And know I tried my best to be fair;
In love and war and all things earthen,
We try our best to keep things certain

This we’ll do for our years on Earth,
And at the end we’ll share rebirth.
Then we’ll share our love in the sky,
Up in the clouds, where the angels hide.

Your Love is Art and Art is Immortal (11.03.10)

Have I told you lately that you make my day?

Oh my love, I wouldn’t have it any other way

Your laughs, your smiles they shine so bright

In a world so dark, you’re my constant light


If ever there was, an infallable clout

It’s the love you give, without a doubt

You’re strength and will and solid heart

Are priceless forms of honest art


You paint our picture with steady hands

Hands that prance and gracefully dance

Across the canvas of our precious lives

Because of your love, we’ll never die
