What Becomes of Me Now

What becomes of me now that you are gone?
I look to the East
I look to the West
And wonder if our paths will meet again
I am lost, so lost
Without you
And the pain is more than I can bear
I sit now in the panels of life
Trying hard to remember
What once was
Our days and nights together
The fuzzy memories alarm me
And I fear I shall forget your face.
I try hard not to dwell
For you are truly gone
So I run
To the height of this life
I have to live
I have to breathe
I have to move on.

What becomes of me now that you are gone?
I raise the question through misty eyes
I live a life better
I guess
And finally close that chapter’s door.


We Dance

In the beginning there was life

My life

There was here and there

It was good

We were good

Mixed up in the here and after

And we danced 

We danced like the music was the only thing 

We danced till midnight and let the rhythm take us far far away

I am enthralled in this moment 

And I enthusiastically take it all in

We are strengthened by what comes before

And what comes after

So we forget

And come back full circle

To the beginning

Where life began

Where we began

And we dance.


The End

Must we say goodbye
It hurts my soul
Must this end
It was my life
You were my life
There are so many things left unsaid
So many things we’ve yet to accomplish
But here it lies
And here it ends
A quiet sort of entrench-able goodbye
To an unwanted end.


Increase My Love

I am gifted by the magic of you
Your smile and your smell always make my day
I release the frustration to talk to you about this
You are a simple man
You will understand
That my love for you is epic
Even though you may not feel the same
But I understand
It is a lot to take in
Is love so different in this day and age?
That a simple smile cannot translate
The feelings and thoughts of a million butterflies.
I am enchanted by the magic of you
Your smile and your smell
The way you look at me
Makes me shoot for the moon
On Mondays love is an epic revelry
Of everything that is to come
And sweet nothings of industry
Do all but increase my love.


Let Us Try Again

Pinch me
I do not feel free to feel this way anymore
You have taken what was mine
And made it yours
I am disgusted
Yes that is the right word
That you would come back into my life
And not make your purpose clearly known
I wonder what to do with this life that we once had
But I know it will be the same
As the last
You had your chance
Some ten years ago
But refused to give back what I needed
And now I see you
And you see me
And I ask pinch me
Because it still feels the same as it did yesterday
Though I do not want to feel and I do not want the hope
I still love you friend
Like the first moment I saw your smile.
What is it you want now
Some years gone by
Are your feelings the same?
Do you want for us to retry?
I pinch myself again
And take a deep breath
I chuckle to myself
And decide there is a reason
So let us try again.

He Does Not Know

I fell in love and it stunted my everything
Was it really love?
I fell in love and never conquered a single soul
Was I dreaming it was love?
I have never touched the hand of the one I love
Am I in this by myself?
Am I calling this thing I claim, love?
My soul is drenched in this imagining of love
It is at my door and my window pane
He stays incessantly on my mind
Are these not the ways of love from on high?
If he does not know
How can it be so?
