My Happy Ending


You take my life,
Turn it over,
Cuts and wounds,
Not a bit of me sober.

In thorns adorned,
I walk the land,
Granite in my eyes,
Blood on my hands.

Step after step,
After every step I take,
I find you with me,
Every step of the way.

This deserted path,
This is our journey for life,
We’ll bleed tears,
Every word a knife.

But braver still, be us,
To still search for paradise,
As long as we’re together,
Love has no price.

You are my enemy,
But you are my friend too,
You are me, in another,
And that there, is my cue.

While you wonder,
About this story,
Our dreams will change,
Slowly but surely.

But stand by me,
As I stand by you,
In me, you’ll find,
Challenges new.

All of this and more,
Somewhere is waiting,
You and I and my dreams,
Together are my happy ending.

 

Worth The Fight.


If it’s real, then I must be a lie,

If it hurts, then I’m sure it’s left you shy,

If I’m asleep, someone must lie awake,

If love is sacred, then why do lovers cry. .

 

When the leaves turn, and skies burn,

Someone somewhere begins to see,

That through the forest of sorrow,

Everyone walked, the one who made it, was he.

 

If this path is tough, and bruises singe,

Then this road must lead to heaven,

If the tears flow, like never before,

It must be the hour eleven.

 

If we’re all dying, then why live in fear,

There must be someone, to hold you near,

If god is benign, then you won’t suffer forever,

There must be someone, to hold you dear.

 

If only we saw, the truth in ourselves,

We’d love a little wiser and true,

If only we looked a little higher,

We’d see why the sky was so blue.

 

Below the heavens and above the earth,

There lie many mysteries and fables,

Most about love, some about hate,

Some about being across the table.

 

While we live our lives away,

A little truth I leave you with,

If you don’t lie within your heart,

Your love for another, is but a myth.

 

When we embrace the colors,

When we welcome the light,

You will see my love,

Life is worth the fight.

Twisted Games.


The fun and games are over,

Now we’re back home alone,

A sea of silence stands between us,

So much left unsaid, & I’m coming undone.

 

In the distance I see our past,

Like a blurry old picture, faded,

I kick off my shoes, tired of the fight,

You crash on the couch, eyes shaded.

 

Let’s talk you say, from the shadows,

Walking over coals I come to you,

While you patiently scrape open each wound,

Each word you say tears me into two.

 

Every dawn brings me such courage,

That I welcome your pain with a smile,

There’s only so much you can fight the fates,

In my arms, you find our love, docile.

 

The calls of the past are too loud,

They pull at my heart,  too strong,

I’m taking you down with me boy,

You’ve been winning for far too long.

 

Let the healing begin already,

Let me help you some,

You can mend me a little too,

After all, I’m your only one.

 

I still see that light in your eyes,

Caught your fib, you little liar you,

Nothing has really changed,

You’re still mine, nothing new.

 

I’ll let you be cruel this once,

I owe you  some vindication,

But lemme know once you’re done,

I gotta resolve this altercation.

 

Throw caution to the winds soldier,

Take a chance on yourself this time,

Playing it safe isn’t our style,

Take a risk, its worth losing a dime.

 

Even now, the first word on your mind,

After all this while is but my name,

Join me  beyond time and space,

As we play together, this twisted game.

Never Before.


A quiet night, the usual  silence,

Struggling with my internal violence,

Stiffly I lay, upon my bed,

Enough’s been heard, way too much said.

 

Thinking of us, is my nightly ritual,

Ironically, it feels almost spiritual,

To analyze our divine creation,

My personal brand of drug addiction.

 

I take heart from the light within,

Every new breath feels like a win,

Each day they say, is a small victory,

But to my purpose, survival is contradictory.

 

Just like the pages of a book,

Our story needs a deeper look,

It doesn’t flow, the way it ends,

The author needs to make amends.

 

Every night before I sleep,

Memories rush forth, and I weep,

Clarity grows with passing time,

Of those old days, so divine.

 

This road led to another direction,

Now the destination is the intent’s reflection,

Inverted and distorted it all feels,

With agony and pain, my mind reels.

 

Its been too long since I took a break,

My dedication to us, did not flake,

So be it, that you are not around,

I’ll suffer your silence and bear your rebound.

 

This door shall always been open,

You’ll just find my spirit a little broken,

The pain shall greet you as well,

You must forget the past, don’t dwell.

 

A girl here, for you is waiting,

Her silence may be a little misleading,

A little more time and space for you,

You need not now, wait for a  cue.

 

But should your mind still be in a fix,

Take your time, break the hex,

Love means not having to give a reason,

I’ll wait for you, through every season.

 

These are the words I leave you with,

We are real, true love’s no myth,

Close your eyes, you’ll see me clearly,

I’ve never before, missed you so dearly.
