Summer is merely creeping, But I’ve been pulling back the shades, I can almost see it Ready to take Spring by the collar, and pull the footing out from underneath it. Don’t Fall before it slips, Winter will be around soon enough to clean up.
Dating like I’m out here, running from love. Skirting commitment? Okay, sure, I admit it. Easier than risking it. Okay, okay, I admit it. Without a sense of a future, Why bring someone else in to risk it? Why waste a womans time by promising commitment? Would never get what she deserves from me, […]
Please realize it. Ain’t gotta say it no clearer. You’re not what I want. Your call’s coming it, I just keep pretending not to hear it. See your name, of course. Leave it alone. Quit beating this dead horse. I’m no ones, definitely not yours.
These pages won’t fill themselves, Dust is filling up the shelves. Notebooks filled with past scribbles, Filling them all felt so simple. Writing’s not the problem. Real problem is how often. Need to vacate for a day. Breathe fresh air far away. Seclude myself into a sea of trees. Get in touch with what touches […]

Gonna make you all proud before I hit the pavement. Gonna leave a mark, make some kind of statement. Gonna make some change, help better our failing nation. Gonna keep breathing, slowly, when I’m anxious. Gonna sort this out, just takes some rearranging.
OH! Look! Here’s a blank margin. Better fill it in! Better start something! Better not just end! And to make sure of that, Please, start and finish it in pen.
This was once a tree providing oxygen. Funny enough, it’s still allowing those stuck far in their heads, like myself, some kind of breathing room. Least I can do is inhale and exhale some ink onto this. I owe it to the oaks. Promises made to pines. Breakthroughs made on birch. Filled up firs. Thankful […]
How many miles? Lost count in such a short while. Moved so fast. We vacated like we’re vacationing, Like we’re headed to an island. Keep it all at bay, Hush, remain quiet, No speaking up, we should stay silent If we don’t talk, No chance for us lying No matter if we keep living, Someday […]
