Alive Behind
Your Eyes

I never wanted to lose those hands
I could hear the wolves howling
The sweat and the softness in the air
The depths of hopes growling
And the birds sang in the distance
The expanding whispers of escape
To trust in the flight hidden beneath
Chance the change you are awake
Alive behind your eyes
To have you look
No disguises
To have you see
To have you see me
To have our ideas considered
The secrets we share
The secrets inside of us
To be found or to be free
For finding or flying is freedom
But dying is to be unseen

Crystalized Thoughts
With Potential

Your latest attempt
Drips from your lips
Like a melting icicle
Strangely crystalized with potential
But ceasing to exist
Curled to the side
I tried to hide
The waterfalls from my eyes
I’m sure you heard
But you chose to deny
Afraid to ask
Afraid to hear
The truth ripple around us
That carried me
Away

Delusions
Of Expectation

A monster of their own
They creep into your lovers arms
More than your childhood rooms
Fiercely grasp upon your neck
And fill your head with illusion
An ever growing plantation of ideas
Designed to fill in the holes you don’t understand
Perceptions become delusions
And soon you have to stand up for yourself
For you have been betrayed
No! you have been led astray
By no one but yourself
Put a sharp pin into the floating head above you
A bubble
A blister to pop
It does not belong
A creation you have designed
By building ships on oceans made of eyes
That drip of blistering remains
No one has obligation
So your boat pointed out to sea
Is nothing but a myth
Look your lover in the eyes
Don’t lock them with your fits
For love is never binding
Dependence will keep you still
But freedom is loving without expectation
A boomerang that will
Surely return to you

Exceptional Human

I don’t have words to tell you no
I have no will to stay or go
Of course I want you back
But first we must confront the shadows
I have no doubt of who you are
An exceptional human by far
By far
You would make the home grand
You make a woman feel secure
But to change our ways
Put on a strong face
And give ourselves space to grow
Is long overdue
I was too young to know
I have no doubt of who you are
An exceptional human by far
By far
But to isolate emotion
That needs forward motion
To understand what is to come
Is to only undo what we’ve done

In Bloom
Without You

I felt detached
Distant from you
I did not understand why
Emotions tried to rationalize
I held back my reactions

Where are your hands
Sweetly calling for me
I am always on the wall
In bloom and forcing myself upon you
Wanting this to be grand
Beyond what we comprehend
Or what is the point

We have worlds to design
Time can be on our side
To be swept away is fine with me
But it must be grand

And I learn your tree stopped growing
It bore you years and years of fruit
To fly you around the world
To live in a material universe
When your spirit was wishing to learn

And now its branches are bare
And you are never here
Never present in your space
Your spirit seeking grace
Your heart afraid
Your soul waiting to be saved

And I watch
With my nose pressed close
On your window
But I am content here
With or without your tree
Or mine for that matter

I wish I could pour you a cup
But you won’t drink from me
You don’t believe I know
What you know
Or anything

Walls Of Nothing
Confining Me

Oh you were so far from me
I sent you there alone
I think I know what was wrong with me
The pushing
The running
The walls of nothing confining me
Oh you built no walls
You built a bridge
You built a garden
Around a house to live
To live with me
But I went for a ride
Cause I had a dream
And I did not cry
No I did not cry
I held my head up high
I held my head up high
Regret is for tears that flow from a stream
From the inside of earth so hot it steams
But no not for me
No not for me
Let’s be free baby
Come with me
I feel the colors come over me
Surrounding me
I feel the colors come over me
Releasing me
In the night I let go of the fight
In the night I focus on bright colors
In the dark you came upon
In the dark I had waited so long
Have you come back to me
Have you come back to me
Oh no what do we know
You made the call
You asked all the people
To take you over the wall
While I waited inside
Inside the house you built
And I began to wilt
But oh in the dark
You came upon
In the dark I had waited so long
Have you come back to me
Have you come back to me
Oh no what do we know
She told me everything
Things I was scared to know
But now I am glad I know
Cause I can make a change
I can grow inside a new swollen belly
And be born again
Do you want to come with me
No it is not too late
All those other thoughts have materialized
But now look in my eyes
We must decide
I’ll give you everything
I’ll save this world for you
At least do what I can do
And tell all the people too
I’ll give you everything
I’ll give you my word
I’ll give you nothing less than what you deserve
I’ll give you what you need
I’ll lick your bleeding pain
I’ll lift you to a higher place
Come with me
Come with me

THE LIFE POEMS » LOVE HURTS POEMS


Jungle Book

The ending is incomplete but cooking quick by the fire
It will soon exist under another empire
You look every day to see what has changed
But the print remains always the same
You submit missing chapters no one heard
The fantasies all these years still unblurred
The depths of what no one knows still living inside you
But the days get easier thinking she’s moved on too
You find a new conclusion with lions at your feet
And the world is yours for the taking to eat
But the jungle lives on creating another story
The lives of the future are racing for glory
For chances to take their turn in your arms
Do they know you are waiting with treats and with charms
Pieces of memories fade but still make impressions
Deeper than the roots of the tallest trees in fashion
