True

If I had to know something to be true
If I had to testify from the bottom of my soul
If there was ever anything tremendous to be sung about
It would be you and the love I have for you
Soaring strings
Triumphant horns
A chorus of choruses extolling the heights my heart flies when it encounters you
That is the purest gospel I could ever preach

it is here

it is here, on this page
that I tell stories
about the man I used to be

it is here, on this page
where I put the words
about the woman
that takes my breath away

it is here, on this page
that I draw images
of booming sparks
and shooting stars

it is here, on this page
that I profess my love for you

it is here, on this page
that I have created a space
for us to gather our everythings
and show them all to the world

When I Wasn’t Looking

Brought to me when I wasn’t looking
I caught you out of the corner of my eye
You were glancing away and spinning
Spending way too long in the back of my mind

Just
Just
Just

Come back around
So you can see the joy on my face
So you can take these two tracks
….listening to your mind’s content

Come back around
So I can talk to you some more
So I can get to know that girl, I knew, again

Brought to me when I wasn’t looking
Found before I knew what was happening
I’m not a betting man
But, I dove right in with all my heart

The Plunge

Late at night
When I’ve done everything I can,
Everything I can…

I make friends
With my…

Whatever you want to call them

We come to agreements
We make promises
We swear that
Things will be
ALL BETTER
When the sun
Comes ’round again

AND I BELIEVE IT!!!!
every time

In fact,
It doesn’t even wait until dawn

The plunge is painful,
Long and shameful,
I am surprised every time
At how much I loose
How much I cover up
For the sake of living
A “normal” existence

When I think
It has come to
It’s shaky end
When the random attacks
On my psyche
Have stopped…

Only then do I dare
To sit back and wheeze
Through stunted breaths,
How thankful I am
To be alive,
No matter how
Monumental the task
May have been

Speak

Speak
Use your voice
Use your words
Go everywhere
You ever want to go

Take me there
Show me what
I have been missing
Through the strains
Of your prose

Sing
Use your rock
Use your soul
Create a new universe
Don’t be afraid to go

Pull me into you
Show me the heartbeat
Of your sun
Let me feel
Your dark attraction
Fill my skies with
Sparks and stars

Make me yours
And I will be
Without question

A Kiss

If if were real
And I could hold it in your hand
That would be a blessing
For my reality

When you become actual
A little at a time
I can kiss tiny pieces
Until you are whole

As time draws circles
Around our embrace
Slowly tightening it’s grasp,
I rejoice amidst the pressure
Squeezing us into one

When when has space
Enough to breathe
I inhale deeply
Filling my entire being
With you

Now is then
When we first were we
Fighting through a wave
For something
We might have known
Would set us on a path
To somewhere
We still exist

I stay awake all week
Dreaming of you
And when we finally meet
Those words
That changed our course
Forever
A kiss

answers

“she is so worth it”
an answer I give myself
if ever I find I am
in need of an answer

“she is so worth it”
an answer I give myself
if ever I wonder
why I came all this way

“you deserve it”
an answer I would give to you
if you should ask me
why I love you

you deserve to be loved,
you deserve to be held,
you deserve to be cherished

you deserve to be free…
from pain,
from loneliness,
to soar without fear

you deserve to be original
and be accepted for that

“I love you”
an answer I give you
whenever you say
“you’re a fool”

“I love you”
you don’t have to say anything
I will repeat it
until the end of time
