uncertainty
is the enemy
but it works for me
when i'm wondering
what the furture holds
should i be bold
or should i fall back
relax
not stress
mull in my own diress
every time the dust settles
something comes along to meddle
detach
from myself
rehash
what i felt
when you ignored my calls
you dick
you prick
but calling you names
won't make me not feel the same
way that i do
adandoned by you
so i mustn't let the silt
settle so much it builds
a wall around me
so that water can't surround me
and carry me
to the open ocean
where I can be free.

Her shadows did not scare her.
No.
She scaled high rises
as she let her arms reach for the sky.
She never asked why.
She never wished it be longer,
For she knew if she slowed time now, there would be no room left
for tomorrow.
Cherish today, yes, and await what comes next.

When the risk to stay
Tightly closed
In a bud
Dug my nails into my palms
Turned my eyelids inside out
From being shut too tight

Free me
Release me
Allow my tongue to speak loudly
My hips to swing
Freely
Let my dress
Between legs that move too fast
And colors
Can never be too loud

They won't stifle
My song
That plays through the high notes
In my eyes
My smile radiates beams
That will not be blacked out
By can't and don't

Towers never too tall
All the better to jump from
Catch wind under my wings
That will take me to sail
Over waters of uncertainty
Let them stretch
Over infinity.

He loves me, he loves me not
And therefore will not love myself...

This girl is ending up in lost and found she
lost her way, sadness on her face
Always afraid that she won't make the grade.

She feels the weight of the world on her back
Steals looks across the room just to get her honor back.

On her back.

She believes that her value lies within him.
Even though she was taught that what she was doing was a sin.
Lost in her ways
Losing her days
Wasting away
Underneath the sheets of another.

Even if they were her own,
Still, she wouldn't be home.

I'll love you tonight
So you'll remember it
for the rest of your life.

I need to leave
before you wake
before you see.

The tears in my eyes-
the ones that were there
since last night.

You made me love you.

I give myself just a moment
to ride the last of the tide
before it retreats for the night.
Reach for the sunlight
as it creeps over the horizon.
Just one more time.
To feel your warmth surround me.

I am so desperate
to have another millisecond
with the ones that mean the most.
In the place I am most at peace
Before I return to the battlegrounds,
When I'll return, I can't say...

...The past
can haunt you.
Or it can remind you
of where you come from.
It can foretell the future,
if you listen closely.
It can rewrite you, define you,
or remind you
to never be defined
by what happened.

But by what will happen.
By what you decide to do,
Who you decide to be...

...But you,
You are not my past,
You are my future.
I have not met you before,
But my smile
is reflected in yours.

One more time
I say goodbye to the tide,
for you will be anew tomorrow,
But forever we will be together.
For even when I walk away
You will be steadfast when I return.

They used to come
in the dead of night.
I was afraid of my dreams.
But demons,
Demons have no shame.
Now,
they tap my shoulder in the morning.
Now,
they mock me with the sun.
Because they know
I will turn away
Because I'm too busy
trying to stay astray
from them.
When what I really want to do
is stay under the covers
because monsters forget
you have a great hiding spot.
But I rise
Just to be sure I'm still alive.

But no matter,
"Free ride, get in her hide
maybe today we'll eat her alive.
Enter at her fingertips
run through her veins,
make her think that today is the same,
as any other day
as every other day
where she will try her best to shake distress
but there's still hell to pay."

I walk past strangers,
I smile and say
"I hope you have a marvelous day."
God forgive me,
I know I said I'd never lie
but there's no reason for them to feel the same as I.

I guess the first step in recovery
Is admitting you need help.

I sat still,
I watched us
sit, still
as we always had.
In our circle,
all hands in.

We reveled
in making it this far.
We were certain that being uncertain,
was the only certainty there was.

Time robs me.
It waits out
Steaks out
until my every move
is predictable
Not unlike the calendar that
Maya made of stone
and trial and error.
For if it was up to me
I would have never
left you alone.

When you feel the world
Closing in on you
And to stop it
There's nothing you can do

Time lies to me
tells me to move forward,
against my will.
But my will
moves forward,
with you by my side.

Just call my name
I'll come running
No matter where I am

Working in a room
Sunlight streaming through windows
I miss my students.

I succumb to dark
No longer resist sleep : that's
Inevitable

A horror story
Of the American brand
Miss you already

If I was a #fool
I'll have #married for #money
Instead of for #love

To fold the clothing

Or not to fold the clothing 
That is the question.

Let me tell you things
The deepest part if my heart
Awed you know them too.

I'm treading lightly
My heart will not get caught up
In someone else's

Let's have a great day
After all it's #Saturday
#Love it up. Let go.


#Confidence beaming 
So revel while it's lasting 
#Hips are here to stay

Feeling the #homesick
From #cloudy skies in #daytime
To the #skyline: mine.

Update: November
I'm finally home. This is
what love is, Bobby.

Update: November
It's already December
Time flies when you work.

A new old fashioned
love story. Always
Always: You, Me, We.
