My best friend is just as crazy as me
Somedays she is clear skies,
Others she is cloudy.
But she is beautiful in both.
And loves with grace and vulnerability.

Connected by the sea,
The ocean and boards are all that we need.
Rain or shine, she’s by my side.
And even when we don’t agree,
I know that I am seen.

Soft as lilac, bold as crimson,
Her beauty
Commands attention,
Inside and out.

Courtney,
You have shown me what true love is all about.

I have friends in High Places,
good friends
tripping *****
floating atop mushroom clouds of ecstasy
Naked,
in otherworldly dimensions
pioneering the mental landscape,
explorers of the mind and soul
bodies,
breaking free of the Iron Cage
living to Love
working only to get by
getting high
to escape
to a place
where mere existence
makes sense.
In honor of Bicycle Day. And inspired by the poetic ramblings of Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac.

I tried to warn you the box was fragile.
But you held it and shook it,
Until it became too much to carry.

Then you dropped it.

And I heard my heart
shatter on the floor.

Pulling meaning from existence,
Casting words and spelling stories
Onto a blank page.

Resurrecting feelings and memories,
Fleeting,
Freezing time and space just to capture a moment.
I am a poet.

the worst pain is
the day after.
when you wake up
to relive
the feeling
over again.

I never
took you
for a fool.

Except for
when we were
fooling around
the backseat
of your car.

You had me fooled
with your wide-eyed,
youthful glow.

I thought
I tasted love
on your lips.

But you were
just looking
for somewhere
to park
your car
for the night.

I guess,
I was the fool.
