There's somethingIn the air tonightMy thoughts are lostSomewhere, mid-flightAnd I can't help myself,It's likeMy thoughts are on their own.The tremble of a restless seaTumbles ashore inside of meMy heart resoundsRelentlesslyI'm all alone tonightTurned the pillowTo the cold sideI wonder if you do this tooThere are so many thingsI'd like to know.Do you wake up every… Continue reading Home

In the Valleys

I sat and watched the sky And the prairie running wild Up to the mountains. I watched the blues and reds Scatter colors overhead - Night fell around me. And suddenly a whisper Came from somewhere Deep inside: I'm walking here beside you I hold every tear you've cried, Just look around - see: Some… Continue reading In the Valleys

3am Random Dream-induced Lyrics

...and she said I still think I might have Liked to have a try But this is really best - Not being perfect all the time And when I Close my eyes I can Still look up and See his face He's just something I can't erase.

Unanticipated

Life has its dips and straights. Sometimes Summer feels more like Spring, sometimes Spring feels more like Winter. Sometimes the road is paved with love and laughter; sometimes it is washed out by torrents of tears. When I look back over my life I've always known what is right and what is wrong. And I've… Continue reading Unanticipated

I Have the Midnight Hues

Ankle deep in the Mist of my steadfast soul, I wait, Follow calm to the Shore of you Feel the spray of the White caps exploding At my feet, and I Wonder where you are tonight Under this shade of Midnight hues And candid blues As the brand new morning Paused long enough For us… Continue reading I Have the Midnight Hues

That's what my car did - Steady and slow like the sun. "I've been... feeling really quiet." My text whispered through the screen as I Wiped… Continue reading You can be quiet

The In-Between

On the margin of day When the sun slides sleepily Off the page, I sit awake, hold my pillow, And sigh. Where daylight dwindles and Tree-shadows grow long, So do my thoughts. They yawn and stretch and Thoughts that got lost amidst the Busy clutter of a long day's work Now saunter back, Sit cross-legged… Continue reading The In-Between

This Poet’s Angst

I don't have words tonight,Not adequate words, anyway.I have cautioned words.Quiet words.Words that peek out of my heart,Look around to make sure no one is reading, thenTip-toe quickly onto the page.Words that don't chassé, rather,That glide forth, slow,Measured and unbiddenLike a silent tear that escapes,Unnoticed by everyone but youIn a moment everyone else isOverjoyed, yet… Continue reading This Poet’s Angst
