There’s a wave that washes over your body, your soul, your everything when love appears in your heart. In that moment, everything makes sense and life as you knew it has been changed forever.

No matter if that love lasts an eternity, or if it vanishes like morning dew. Your life is never the same after falling.

For my friend

For you my friend, who listened to my pain.


You listened while I lamented, you heard me out when I vented.

You told me things I didn’t want to hear, just because you wanted it all to be clear.


All the while you had your own dealings, someone you cared for hurt your feelings.

I know you struggle with many things, I know at night your heart stings.

I am impressed at your ability to conjure a smile, I’m impressed by your strength all the while.

You are a rarity, you shouldn’t be ashamed. Don’t let your heart ever be tamed.

Hold your child close to your heart, that’s a relationship that will never part.

Whenever you need to talk, you know I’ll be here. In your future, there’s no room for fear.

Scars and pain

The most painful scars are those unseen, caused by something so obscene.

It’s the kinda of pain solitude can resurrect, the kind of pain with strong effect.

I can feel those arrows when I’m alone, deep in my dreams my heart will groan.

Yes, these scars go deep, but somehow I’m getting back on my feet. This pain you caused, I will defeat.

I don’t know if you enjoyed watching me hurt, in my hard times you chose to desert

It doesn’t matter now I suppose, you’ll not have me to get you chocolates next time it snows.

I was blamed for everything done wrong, you betrayed me like a siren’s song.

I gave you my all, I’m not ashamed, but I’m confused as to why my heart is the one maimed.

Autumn night

I settled into this somber day, I watched the autumn leaves fall and the children run and play.

It’s always a surprise to see how time flies.

I’m sitting, wrapped up in thoughts, memories have me drunk, like vodka shots.

I found it useless to grasp at the past, somethings in life weren’t meant to last.

But, I sometimes like to visit you there, a time in life when I hadn’t care. No beauty on earth could even compare, to smiling moments two lovers share.


After you

What this heart break did to me, it removed my heart’s anonymity.

No longer am I afraid to say, please babe, won’t you stay?

I have felt the pain of losing out, but that doesn’t mean it’s love I doubt.

Each day I long for something more, but I’ve yet to pull myself from the floor. 

I remember you asked if we should shut this door, and I remember my pride kept me from saying anything more.

I felt the pain of love lost, I feel that I payed the ultimate cost.

The depth of my soul knows no bounds, the passion I have always astounds.

In nights deep black, I lay alone. The sounds of my memories begin to moan.

The sadness is almost a friend, reminding to be careful for fear of the end.

My eyes have known a thousand years, like a great river, I’ve many tears

The wind blows on my shoulders tonight, but this vodka makes things seem right.

My mom asked me if I fear death, I asked how can I, it’s in each breath.

I plummet deeper into entropy, you’ve stolen many pieces of me.

I’ll toast to you this night, give me some time, and I’ll be alright.

When you’re in your bed, perhaps you should think about the things I said.
