laughter, happiness

things we show

when everything goes right

tears, sadness

things we hide

when everyone else thinks things are right

show me all

I want to know

when everything is wrong

when everything is right

why hide

when I am right here

give me your good

give me your bad

I can take it

I know what it is

Don’t feel lost

I’ll hold your hand

love insanity

what is it when I see you

wondering how I ever could

how I never even though

but even as I see

you cannot see

I watch from a distance

and people say I am nuts

but I wonder just if

just maybe

if the courage I can build

wondering if you even know

you don’t even see

how I feel

now I wonder if

I should be committed

just for thinking

just for seeing

just for following

but I turn around

before I can give myself away

some are small
some are large
some heal
others never do
some are seen
worn on the sleeve
others never show
driving deep
like a puncture
to the soul

Clapping Seals

Clapping like seals

as he speaks

taking us away

from a cleaner world

with promises of jobs

that disappeared

of jobs

that no longer exist


that are not coming back


that no matter what

have already made their way out

promising our portion of the pie

what will happen to us

what will happen to the world

with the seals

clapping and clapping

with no care in the world

People are the same

No mater where they are

no mater what





how can we be

so divided by Impression given

because of color


or creed

we have the same color

when we bleed

we cry the same tears

when we grieve

we are the same

you and me

don’t rush to judge

by a first sight

Let Go

Holding on
tears falling down
knowing you don’t see
not because you don’t see
just because you don’t know
actions hurt
but words stick
just wanting to let go
waiting for the day
hoping for the day
needing to heal
but only one can do it
waiting to let go

you say you changed

you say I’m the one

with the issue

from a distance

I see your manipulative ways

and you grasping the straws

you say I’m the issue

I watch you fall apart

see you in denial

making promises

saying things changed

though they never did

My Addiction

Just to  see you there

hearing your voice

feeling your presence

being immersed

in everything you

no drug

no alcohol

could compare to

my only addiction

that can never be cured

my love of you

how is it you see

a different me

that seems to be

an abstraction of reality

but we are not that different

even though you never see

but please…don’t judge me

for what I believe

need sleep
how can I quicken
the onslaught of sleep
it won’t come
until I get done
rush here
rush there
quickly solve
everyone at rest
me on my feet
until I pass out
