have you ever seen the sky so blue?
only when I'm here with you
have you ever seen the grass so green?
only when you're here with me
have you ever felt a love like this?
my whole life it's you I've missed
together we'll be, forever we'll be
in love like this
my whole life i've waited
sat so long anticipating
now you're finally here
don't ever leave me dear
at night I cry alone
feels so good to have you home
I'll wipe your tears away
you know I'm here to stay

Like the Roses

When I awoke today
You were not there
the bed was cold
the air, colder still
I go to the machine
there is nothing new
I expected not to
hear anything from you
I look over at the table
you used to bring me flowers
somehow I've always known
like the roses in the vase
our love would soon die too
I take a shower,
go about my day
And I change the sheets
before I go to sleep

Hunter (or, Dying Dreams)

I want to be the hunter
I want to take control
I want to feel the power
of the cross and bow
I will stalk my prey
til they have nowhere left to go
I hunt for songs
I hunt for peace
I hunt for dreams
I hunt for me

(december 2008)


the safety of objects
the comfort of a lamp
and chair
knowing they
will always be there.
the security of
and mattresses
and of the things
in your life
you could
do without

lay me down

One more
lost to oblivion
and we wonder
why we are fighting.
one more
shot down
to death
in an alley
no more hugs
or smiles
or words to be said
and we wonder
stands for.
as another is laid
down among millions
in wooden boxes.

I step out of my skin
because you wouldn't
let me in
They won't know me
by name anymore
You are not who
I live for

Inspire me
with your
songs. Soothe
me with
your hands.
Save me
with your

Do you remember
that day
we walked through
the overgrown trails
you pulled aside
the thorn branches
for me
you held my hand
so i would not fall
while staring up
at the leaves
like stars
in the day-time
we didn't say
in the quiet
i heard your
heart racing
i heard the stream
and the wind
in the trees
i heard your thoughts
tune into mine
we were
as one

Will We?

who will stand-up
for those who cannot
and who will speak
for those with no voices
who will fight
for what's right
when so much
is going wrong

I wish I could own
ever book i've
ever read
good and bad
I would
like trophies
and tell myself
these are
my dirty secrets
my loves
my life

(november 11, 2008)


you run until you fall
you walk until you crawl
you cry until you laugh
you speed until you crash
you love until you can't
you sing until you're hoarse
you try to stay on course
you try until you fail
you stay until you bail

(november 2, 2008)


And I'd give up forever to touch you,
Cause I know that you feel me somehow.
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be,
And I don't want to go home right now.

And all I can taste is this moment,
And all I can breathe is your life,
And sooner or later it's over,
I just don't want to miss you tonight.

And I don't want the world to see me,
Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.

And you cant fight the tears that ain't coming,
Or the moment of the truth in your lies.
When everything feels like the movies,
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.

And I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.
