Button Down Girl

Not realizing
How mean she can be

And she doesn’t sleep
Up past four
Wondering what to keep
How much more

There you lay
So incandescent
No game to play

Full of dreams
Sweet baby screams.




Resonating words!

Weekend Flash

Her heart filled a little
Knowing no further
Not any closer

But his air
She breathed
And his eyes
She followed

These few nights
In a weekend flash
Like a dream
She never had.


Black and White


Little Words

Little notes on
Little paper
I put in an envelope
To hide from you

And on and on
Life went on
Feeling right
In all the wrong


My friend

It’s when
Without saying
And your arm comes around me
You are my friend
You understand
And don’t wonder why
My thoughts weigh heavy
You help me carry on.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Remember to Forget

That’s where we went
Into the cool night
Hoping to ease all the pain
Just a breath away from going insane

So dress light
Feel the air
Feel that chill
Making you alive

And remember
Not to miss me
Not to know me
Those memories we made
Too good to let go

Remember to forget

And like the night I’ll go away

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond



This photo was taken by my older brother when I visited him in Puebla, Mexico. It’s astounding to see this and he snapped an awesome picture. I made some minor changes to it as far as the coloring after uploading but nothing else. I had to feature this for the theme “Beyond” as I think it fits perfectly.

Maybe One Day

You are absolutely beautiful to hear

I picture things by painting them with your voice

Just to see how it is you might see me

It starts in the midst of a morning sunrise

The light glowing in the air and your long black hair wisping in the wind

Ever so lightly sometimes brushing against my neck

And it’s all so warm and perfect

The gentleness of your gaze

The reflection of the world in your eyes

And before you even speak

Everything slows down

My heart lights up

Because I think I’ll know what you will say

My intrigue continues but looking no further

Just so that you might see me as I see you,

Maybe one day.
