I believe that there are some souls
born into this existence tormented
A truth that will never falter.
Branded into their beings is the truth
that without love,
we are nothing.
We are meant to love and be loved.
Our sole purpose is to fall in love.
These troubled souls are faced with
the realization that once love has left you..
there is nothing left.
Life loses its color. Suddenly,
everything is dull
and the fire within you extinguished.
Life is filled with emptiness.
Empty words, empty promises,
empty lies, empty cycles,
empty sorrow that engulfs you and
we strive to fill the bottomless
pit of our souls. But,
it will perpetually amount to nothing.
We are nothing.
We are mindless creatures searching in all
the wrong places.
We are hopeless.
And the only way to live fully is
So, where do we go when love is lost?
We become sorrow at it’s best.
Will I hear you again?
Or even see you open your eyes?
If only I could have one last chance
I wouldn't change anything
Except make it easier on Mom
She took her ring off Dad
Left it by her pain killers
You tried your best, it wasn't good enough
Things have finally wrapped up
Just like you are this very moment
Seeing you in a casket,
Wrapping my still young hands around your fist
Tears staining your new dress shirt
Speaking for the dead, listening to the alive
Searching for the memory
Of the Concrete Cross
Reading the numbers of your hospital room
All of it a mixed memory,
I'll miss you Dad
I guess I'm supposed to say:
I love you
But I'll walk through the Church doors
My last words to you were
Summer, now just a ball of ruined treasures hanging above me
Thinking of 3 lonely months with nothing to keep me occupied.
Thinking.. Thinking way too much. No more thinking.
I know I’m nothing.
I know I’m even more of a nothing every time I say it.
Every time I talk about it.
Every time I point it out.
I am pathetic.
And I am nothing.
I am not the motion of a princess being swept away.
I am not the gaze of a star-crossed lover.
I am not a wedding vow.
I am a hug and a receptor of sound waves.
I am kind words and oxygen.
I am a friend.
I am not a lover,
A significant other.
I feel like nothing.
What is this all for?
Why force another person to believe they are not worthy?
Why make them look at themselves less?
It is no longer funny
when I stare and question my identity...
it is meaningless all that pours from your lips
never has it occured to me
that the words you speak are poison
that the life you lead is dead
I am not here to judge
I hate to fight
I want to fall asleep at night
knowing you all are at peace
but how can I love when I hate what you've become
how can I believe when your fallacies lead destruction
no one controls a single soul
you may label
you may grieve
but my fellow friends
what you decide may lead me to leave
I hate to say goodbye
but its the only justice I see
May you be you
and let me be me
with or without you
I will be free
I have learned this life I live is too short to care about your beliefs
a mouth full of cavities
and lungs full of algae infested waters
from sitting too long with no
from what traps us in these ominous, dank
gaunt faces with sunken eyes
from nights too haunted to sleep
swollen tongues with words unspoken
from submission to
in the face of constant
left in the veil of fog that masks the ground
every morning over the once green pastures,
stripping the color from the world,
with the corruption
of what once was
what still is
and what will
we lose ourselves in the unapproachable
of what we have created
what we were born into
what we will never
we lose ourselves.
we lose ourselves.
we are all
we were always empty anyways.
walking amongst the hollow men.
we are the hollow men.
the hollow men.
we weren't always the hollow men.
tell me how to fill these holes that
are found in our teeth
in our lungs
where did all the substance go?
Your standing at a cross roads
And you dont no which way to go
To the left is a road you've never known
To the right is the life youve lived and grown
As the rain pours down along your face
Your confused on which choice to make
Your scared of change and risk
You always belive youll fail the test
Even though your stronger than most
You dont belive you have anythin to boast
A predictiable stable life is what you want,
Descions and stress give you haunt
A fulfiled life is all you want,
My Wandering woman just follow your heart,
Dont worry what others think, its about what you want
Let nature be your guide and show you the way,
Choose a path and dont ever stray
Follow the sun the moon and stars,
Theyll always stay bright for you,
Just look to the sky whenever your blue,
Take a deep breathe and let it all flow out,
Before you make a descions no matter what about,
While your at the crossroads wanderer,
Always remember not to ponder,
Follow your gut and nothin but,
Dont let outside fears take control,
Your demons are no match for your heart,
Even though they may never let go,
Fight through them all with courage and wit,
Think on your toes and never sit,
Youll get through this wandering woman,
Never doubt what you are doing.
Never let your smile go dim,
It will brighten up any room,
Keep your eyes open wide
They are as blue as the sky,
Tread your gorgous soul onward dear,
There is nothing for you to fear.
As you stand at the crossroads before you
Remember these words i said to you,
If you choose the road you dont know
Or the one that youve grown accustom too
Just make sure that youll be happy first,
Happiness is your primary first.
Everything else can wait,
And i myself can always wait,
Ill wait until your seas have calmed,
Until it is safe to climb a shore,
Until your storm has subsided,
And you can no longer deny it.
Never the less ill always be by your side,
And for you ill hang up my pride.
You'll always have a place in my heart,
You always have right from the start.

In every breeze, in every blade waving to me,
I hear the poetry that encompasses;
the insects brushed off my tattered t shirt
are eavesdroppers, premature sightseers,
wanting a preview of what has just been scored
and written up and how big a part they have.
shadows upon the lawn,
dancing a modest but frothy salsa,
my heart lips speak peace unto us all
and my eyes see my dear ones, beside me,
in my envelope of words, you are embraced:
to all, I say now you are bound to me
by thoughts of tenderness no lawyers can sunder,
that needs no caveated blessing from
city clerk or prepaid spiritual diviner.
my forked branch twitchs where wells,
nay, reservoirs of all cherished natural vitals
are awaiting for us to drill and drink,
raw, direct to the bloodstream,
which when warmed by a warmth
I have no words to describe other than
it is given and stored within for consumption
when sad moments arrive,
and when called upon, restores and soothes
when hugs and words cannot,
but for now, for knowing, for keeping.
you though distant, grow closer,
and I will ride through the nite
with two lanterns to announce our reunification
after so long, what could be better
than to fall upon your neck, and lips parted,
whisper words of thanksgiving
Stop to peer in,
dank air rises.
Is that dark water below or just words of babble?
Heard her before,
dusky voice from Pall Malls aplenty,
whisper names in unison with wind;
blowing up now, I hear her still.
I was here before, when she fell,
a falling without a splash, sound of nothing.
Heard her then…hear her now.
“I love you anyway,” echoes in my head.
Shelter me from the rain my muse
Touch the solace on my ever furrowed brow
Liquid the red rain tethers me to earth
Hangs languid while the last falls from oblique skies
Disappearing into the insipid blackness
Becoming hard to swallow bitterness upon my tongue
Less of the sweet coated in yesterdays words
Engraved cold upon marble monuments
Silent sentinels for the dawn shadows
Intended for other dreams yet to be
Still the lingering doubt remains
Have a I loved you before I loved you into existence

All the words in the
whole wide world cannot describe
my sweet love for you.
