Let nostalgia and what-ifs,
Should-of, would-of, and could-of,
Be no longer curses, but gifts,
Not the pain of loss, but the memory of love.

Let the years seem kind in their passing,
Let me revel not in the present but celebrate in giving,
In helping, in loving, in laughing,
Not just one closer to death but another year of living.

Let these words ease angst,
And soothe long-suffering sorrow,
Let the past be wreathed in lights, not pains,
Not days passed but another chance at tomorrow.

Today I've decided I've outgrown these tears,
I'm yet younger than the mirrors wrinkled clues,
So here's wishing you all the best of my years,
With a wink of these birthday blues.

She lies

Because I lie

I lie

Because I am insecure

She lies

Because she no longer trusts me

I lie

Because she hurts me

She lies

Because she doesn't want me to see her pain

I lie

Because I fail to understand

She lies

Because she can no longer see the truth of me

I lost her

When I could no longer see the truth of her

Fun
The most fun I ever had
Was making you laugh
**** a copyright who cares steal it
it's only my heart

Ya know...

If that most famous pair of star-crossed lovers had only possessed cell phones,

Things might have gone much differently.

Dreamscape twilight skies
Gentle light, blue and pale
Arms embracing love and life
Breathing fast and frail
Passioned gasp and sigh
Inspired by bone sharp nails
Tracing down soft thighs
Round supple tail
Chasing chills up spine
Neck arching sweetly impaled
Pupils lock eyes
Shared ecstasy exhale
Spirit-minds entwine
Heart's promise, eternity trails

The edge of the abyss
Is the thrill of power
The hint of her presence
Blasting from the radio tower
Her hand reaching out
Is the cosmic transistor
Soothing waves deluge doubt
No force can resist her

The gentle bite of the stars reflected in the night sea.

Holding my gaze, and holding me fast to my vision,

So that I need never know the difference,

Between your eyes and the light of day.

Turn not away from me, but into me.

So that we might savor the entwining heat of our embrace.

But if you must leave me, know this;

That I shall surely fall into the depths of that same sea,

To perish, still contemplating the wonders of you.

That I should remain, still, beneath such turbulent waters,

Eternally reflecting a love further than the stars,

It would be the sweetest rest,

Suspended in the deepest sorrow.

Ice blue chilly
Shadow dark
Trapped in memory
Entropically stark
Struck by epiphany
Zeptoseconds for a quark
A self-fulfilling prophecy
Bitten by its bark

The only gold I can offer is sunlight
The only silver, the clouds a-lined
We seek out security in a world perishable
A bleak bout of surety in a whirl of variables
All lead away from that one perfect day
While dodging pendulums leaves time unswayed

I just wanted to say I love you before
I'm not forty-four anymore
Cause 44 = 2 x 22
And those numbers mean you
