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.

She gets freaked out by the contents of my closet.
Howls at the chips that I keep in my pocket.

When I only have time to hold the jar
of salsa to dip Scoops and raising the bar.

To make food more "mobile",
to give me convenience
And I get made fun of,
Give me some lenience!

There's no room in the cupboard
so the P.B.'s in my dresser.
Of all your pet peeves
I hope the P.B.'s the lesser. 

Where's the spaghetti, you ask?
I keep that in the closet, next to the sauce, in the back.

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.
