erased
private
saved as-
tame
sitting this hard
locked in a story
most of my day
soaking neat textures
in words

some expressions
overtures
and love
life's jump Mar 2019
The universe has its way of making things right
if you don't believe yourself, nothing will.
I can love you all the way
just like this, from this far away
Sometimes I write songs
helps me get through my day
They come as fast as life, just look the other way
I'm texting this out as I go along
to the safest beat, to the saddest one
My voice is soft, whispering the words I type
What's going on, just a song to love
to a life I long.

I wanted it to be us
Pulling away from the bottom
Of the deep end;
But smeared lipstick reminds me:
This is only temporary.  
They will only love you
As long as you are loveable
As long as you are good

I would have shook off
This dark veil
To see you more clearly

I would have loved
This world
In its chaos
Beautiful spirals in and out
Of madness
Of loneliness and beckoning
Over and over
A tolling bell.

aimless. If you're aimless, you don't have a destination or a goal in mind. Aimless wandering through a forest might take you in circles, or worse yet, get you lost. The adjective aimless is good for describing things that have no particular purpose or plan.

about buttercups,
that yellow poison
soft touch.
my affair with these clouds  
beyond us.
