THE morn of life is past,
And ev'ning comes at last;
It brings me a dream of a once happy day,
Of merry forms I've seen
Upon the village green,
Sporting with my old dog Tray.
Chorus: Old dog Tray's ever faithful; Grief cannot drive him away; He's gentle, he is kind, I'll never, never find A better friend than old dog Tray.

The forms I called my own
Have vanish'd one by one,
The lov'd ones, the dear ones have all pass'd away;
Their happy smiles have flown,
Their gentle voices gone,
I've nothing left but old dog Tray.
Chorus.

When thoughts recall the past,
His eyes are on me cast,
I know that he feels what my breaking heart would say;
Although he cannot speak,
I'll vainly, vainly seek
A better friend than old dog Tray.
Chorus.

you said you were leaving

i was overwhelmed by this happiness

you were finally out of my life

i could finally be free

so you packed your things, you went to your car and loaded it

then,

you turned to me

pulled out a handgun

and shot me in the chest

my skin tore and presented a large gaping hole

and from it poured bright red disappointment

my ribs cracked and out rolled my heart onto the concrete of my patio

you laughed a hearty laugh with wicked undertones

you shoved your gun into your pocket

watched me choke, watched me scream at the top of my lungs, struggle for air, struggle for anything

then towered me, bent down swiftly and picked up the bleeding thing

you smirked at me, "only taking what's mine"

i never saw you again

Remember my eyes
dimmed in the blue light.
Stare into them as you take your thoughts further than you are comfortable with in order to let go.

Make me
believe how much
your body aches
and your soul
begs for my love.

One day...
We'll walk through the sparkling blue waters holding hands ever so tight.
    Smiling and looking steadily at the horizon.

   The orange sun is setting it's self, like a giant fire ball of a clock. letting us know that time is still in motion. Even if our hearts are not.

We loved your ample bosoms,
Dear Grandmothers,
So soft and pillow-like;
The perfect place to lay sleepy heads.

We loved your voluminous laps,
Dear Grannies,
Wrapped in yards of cotton;
The perfect place to rest teary faces.

We loved your full long dresses,
Dear mothers of our parents,
In lengths well past your knees;
The perfect place to hide a shy child.

what would the world be like
if everything was uniform

imagine
trees the same height
and width and each one placed
an equal distance apart
with 8,956 leaves,
with 32 branches

imagine
clouds shaped perfectly
each one rounded off
into a model circle;
a radius of 64 meters,
3,734 feet above

imagine
no mountains or hills
or canyons
because it's not fair
for one part of our world
to be taller than the rest

imagine
one person
just one
looking like everyone else
and everyone else
looking like them

our world is not cookie-cutter.
our world is diverse.
our world is a unique individual
that was beautifully
and wonderfully made

...
so are you.

not so sure if I like this one, I just wanted to get across the message that perfection does not exist.
