Thoughts

I’ve swallowed up a thought.

And tried to give up on it.

It became what I sought.

Back down that well I’d seek for it.

Which thought is it I sought?

As memories appear before me.

Bad thoughts must now be fought.

Why did I look inside of me?

Midnight

I crept up upon a whisper. And saw the words disappear.

They seemed to run from me. These words inside of me.

I finally caught a word. A word, what a word.

The word was actually ‘word.’ And I got what I deserved.

No endings were found tonight. I kicked the period of a run on in flight.

You might think it’s right. But a single word is never right.

Love

You never love someone fully right away.

I love you more and more each day.

Those that fall into love, fall out of love.

And then move on from love.

We seem to find it each day.

Even if we have to make it some days.

That’s real love to me.

Personal

I could never count the tears in your eyes. How often I’ve made you cry, how many times I’ve left you standing saying why. All for a few moments of disguise, let me cover up your eyes.

I’ll never be what you want me to be, but as long as you don’t see, there is nothing to see.

See these tears falling from your eyes, they are just lies.

Lost moments of you and I.

vLog – Poetry – Would you ever, if you never

Would you ever, if you never saw the stars.

Learn to dream in the dark away from the light.

Would you ever, if you never had a cause.

Fight for those that cannot fight.

Would you ever, if you never knew love.

Share a moment and create a memory.

Would you ever, if you never knew the truth.

Find peace at night and learn just to be.

Could I ever, if I never knew my past.

Find something worth holding and make it last.

Could I ever, if I never cared for you.

Find forgiveness for you too.

Could I ever, if I never knew the man I was.

Be the man I was meant to be.

Could I ever, if I never wrote again.

Live my life with no beginning or end.
