Present the Present

fly-agaric-4838_960_720

Here I am

Scarred, bruised; a little broken

But my present is the present

Gone are the moments of moments ago

Lost is the pain that gripped me so snug

Right now is a gift that keeps giving

I can’t go back – cannot go forward

Always in the present moment.

Disappear

light-bulb-2440944_960_720

Screams, so decrepit

Disappear into the light

Breathe, never again

Premature Love

heart-1948970_960_720

Oh how I wanted to love you

Long and lonely like a lost sunbeam

You floated by

Like a wish in the sky

I was blatant and early

You were shameful and  hollow

There were too many shadows

Not enough heart

So we picked up our scabs

Jogged back to start

Our premature nature

Soaked in a private endeavor

Now we’ve bled apart

Rapid Release

Yesterday was the first day that I let go

Today is the first that no one will know

How did I get from there to here

How did it all just disappear

A rapid release, like a blur in the dark

All around me cold and stark

Where is my crystal mountain?

Where is all that they said I done?

Never was never forever for me

That’s just something I wish you could see

There’s always that tinge of self-respect

Drowned out black by self-regret

Today I’ll remember this stark, cold rhyme

As I walk that final cold, red line

Theory of Doubt

There is a threshold

That no longer cries

Amidst the darkness

Of despondent sighs

Forever is okay

If you’ve got nowhere to go

Angels were once sinners

On a dark and lonely road

Buckle up your sunshine

And pack it in your heart

Doubt your self a rainbow

Just be sure to start

As long as you’re going

Be sure to push on through

That makeshift smile you wear

Sure looks good on you…
