Honey on the table or spilled out – whatever keeps the fruit flies coming back. We went above the river to see the flood water rising; it has rained all winter and now the blue sky feels unnatural.
We used to dream about Washington, and you’d tell me not to worry about the gray skies or the rain. I survived one week in rainforests and glacial rivers. It has never felt like enough – maybe we’ll move to the same town and live on opposite streets.
Lately I have snapped in pieces of the puzzle but the closer I get to finishing, the less I want to – there is an answer in a place too deep to reach.
My whole body has been sick and I pretend I don’t know the reason – you said you’d take whatever I would give so is it wrong of me to give you less – I don’t know how to quantify the guilt I carry.
Maybe I’ll sell all my belongings, head west, to a cabin in the forest and when people look for me all they’ll hear is the howling of the wind.
Maybe it's the obsidian spirit within that wishes to be in her axis spin A topsy-turvy tango on the turnpike My heart tries keeping pace Embarrassment of riches, her smile never saves face I'm spoiled to witness a heavenly Rorschach test walking Olympic views sparkling on high A natural one Holy smokes I've seen the evergreens blush red When she brushstrokes Her paintbrush-lush hair amidst the background of the Puget Sound So refreshing Trapped in her net Outside the network of jerks Fishing for **** Refresh the pages Reload the look of ages My type of hype She's keying in on my keen instincts Putting wings on my desires So heights can be admired So fright can be delayed In flight, I've fallen.
I look to the East and with deepen breath, free my soul inside love. I look to the West and with dancing steps, free my soul inside dreams. I look to the South and with open eyes, free my soul inside visions. I look to the North and with hearts song, free my soul as my mind follows.
It’s been told she has the heart of the Sun A bright bronze sphere That can never turn down fun Brazen is she towards those who stand in her way Guided by faith, her feet never stray No matter the currents or the strength of the Tides She goes low when they fly high Like Hawksbill, Green, Loggerhead and Leatherback She attains the longevity they endure Her voice is as sweet as the Black Pineapple Her beauty resembles the Antiguan hibiscus Some might even say more For her beauty is something you can’t ignore Whenever one door closes She makes one more open Always giving faith a fighting chance Whenever the option arises She always chooses to DANCE! As the soca rhythm flows into her blood steam And the bright colors of carnival collide There outshining the others You can find the person I call my “MOM” My Antiguan Queen Always representing red white black blue and gold pride
Shut your mouth Take your **** head south I will not stop now I will figure this out somehow This won't be my end I vow I will push on to be my best While you'll go south I'll go west I don't need to walk far on this earth To find how much I am worth I am as powerful as I let myself be So I will give you to the count of three Head down south while I’ll go west There is no time to rest My destiny is in my hands You will not stop my plans For you cannot win And I cannot lose
