what is a thought?
I do not know
and yet I am tumbled
too and fro
until my foundations are shook to naught
and all I once was is left forgot
I once rested within your mind
but now knowledge of me is hard to find
I’m not more than forgotten memories
drifting away into the sea
in the sea, I am no more
till I settle upon some distant shore
a low branch hanging
in the way but with lack of fruit
can somehow yet be tempting
if you can recognize it’s truth
that once that branch was young and free
standing tall with head held high
and though now he may droop down low
he wants you to know he’s still alive
I just want a little happiness
is that really so much to ask
why can’t I just find some light
where I can take a while and bask
I just want a little peace of mind
but I find I am denied
so I’m stuck here waiting
for a time when the sun can shine
a time when you come and change my life
Get you drunk
I’m so lyrically gifted it should be a crime
but sit down, recline while I blow your mind
my freestyle is magic, I turn phrases into wine
get you drunk off my flow just passing some time
oh but you are a star,
shining bright amidst my dark, my life
my world filled with strife
but was cleansed with light
when you arrived
no more shadows here
just you, just light
I find it strange
can feel as though closing
when they have
and so too
can they feel
as a newborn’s first breath
a fresh start
with it’s dark, shadowed friend

Nope, though I hear it’s a nice town. The closest I’ve ever lived to it was Portland, OR and I was very young, I’ve been an east coaster for the majority of my life.
Proper Way to Kiss
People often tend to believe that a first kiss has an essence of magic about it unrivaled in other touches of soft lips, but I must confess my favorite kiss is always the second.
When first you kiss there is a certain restraint, a nervousness, which is exciting but causes you to hold back. But after you break from that first embrace and truly see each other for the first time, faces mere inches apart you begin to feel this magnetic attraction stronger than the wind and the tides. You find yourselves being pulled back into a kiss that is all wonder; an exploration of each others souls with no judgement, no restraint.
That, if you ask me, is the only proper way to kiss.
If it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, know in your heart and mind that I am solely beholden to you.
A Reason To Smile
some may say broken
but they don’t realize the truth;
how my heart has suffered endless years
of this chaotic abuse.
I’ve been battered and shattered
by emotions so rude
that words shan’t describe
such a thing so uncouth.
But what I’ve learned in my time
is despite reason or rhyme
my heart keeps on yearning
for that love to call mine
and when one day it holds me
in embrace so divine
I’ll look back on those heartaches
and find a reason to smile.
