These are some of the little pieces and parts of poems that i’ve written but haven’t yet developed.

Days & Nights

Some nights
I shackle my heart to the past
Let it all keep replaying

Some days
I move forward so fast
I can almost see the future
Reshaping

the leaf

I am a leaf
in a windstorm
flying up
falling down
thrown up against barriers
scraping along just above the ground

Cobwebs, Leaves and TV Screens

I sweep warning signs idly away
Like cobwebs from a doorway
Forgetting about the spiders
Who put them there in the first place

I hold onto love too long
Like a tree in an autumn breeze
Stubbornly refusing to cast off deadening leaves
Afraid of what losing those colors might mean

But worst of all
I remember like a TV screen
Everywhere I go
I see ghosts acting out the memories

Lies

I feel like a dream just died
Someone pulled back the curtain
and it vanished in the daylight
I won’t keep trying
to build my home on your lies
Like sand, it only appears to hold
until pressure is applied

the dreamers

i’m always drawn to the dreamers
to the under achievers
the lost souls
the ones with layers
that i can never get
to unfold

remind me

i didn’t see you much
during your pregnancy
never got to ask you
what kind of man
you hoped he’d be

i’m not sure
which stories
you had wanted
to make sure he knew
not sure
what you most
wanted to teach him
as he grew

and boy,
do his faces
remind me of you

ever after

i guess
that story
is over
turn the page
end the chapter
not every
story
has a
happily
ever after

last night

last night
making love to you
i cried
a release
of the emotions
held captive
by my pride

traces

everything evolves
nothing
stays the same
feelings may
change
but traces
remain

breaking

it’s too beautiful
the water
the sun
the warmth that it’s making

for me to be
sitting here
faking

for my
heart
to be breaking

winter woods

heavy
snow-covered trees
look like lighted
silk tent tepees

september

alone with my thoughts amid winds in early september. among greens and trees and fall, pre-splendor.

to deal with
my tone

be waiting
for love
to feel like a song
like the way
that i feel
when Wonderful Tonight
comes on

cant seem

cant seem
to move on
cant seem
to let go
cant seem
to stop
cant seem
to say no

loneliness
is in the air
i can feel it
everywhere
come and lay
your heart by mine
maybe they’ll
grow full with time

high hopes and high pedastals

we came together so naturally
and fell apart so fast
kind of funny considering
we were so sure this would last
we had high hopes and high pedestals
we placed each other on
and before we knew what happened
those pedestals were gone

lonely

being lonely
is like a hunger
that wont go away
it only
grows stronger
with each passing day

it aches
to be soothed
by the one that you miss
it makes
you yearn
for just one more kiss

cant be

this can’t be it
this can’t be goodbye
this can’t be you
laughing at me
while i cry

more to say

it’s really too bad
that it’s over this way
when we both have
so much more to say
but none of it
would do any good,
anyway

strangers

every stranger
has a story
a mystery
worth exploring

your ring

i no longer
wear your ring
no longer in need
of the comfort
that band would bring

but i must
still admit
missing you is a habit
much harder to quit

tell me

i just want you to tell me
that i didn’t hurt you too bad
i just want to know
that deep down
you still think i’m kinda fab

i’m always up
for a good time
if the feeling
is right
i go
with the flow
i don’t
like to fight

but don’t tell me that i
shouldn’t be alone
at this time of night
when i know
it’s my bed
you have in your sight

keeping score

we’ve been down
this road before
not that i
am keeping score

i’m just not sure
that things can be
the way they were
between you and me

but that doesn’t change
where we are
or where we’ve been
i’m not sure that i
can explain it with this pen

love like ours

loves like ours
are easy come
and easy go
or, at least-
that’s what i’m told

its
the going
i’m not
finding
so easy

it’s like suddenly i
have nothing to say
sleepwalking my way
from day to day
its not like anyone
notices, anyway

i know that you’ll just cry
cause you know its worked
every other time
but baby
i’ve got something else
in mind

cruel

sometimes i think life
is unabashedly cruel
meant to continuously
make you feel like a fool

whiskey

whiskey dulls the pain
i carry inside me
an aching that accompanies
almost any memory

you think love
is either wrong or its right
but nothing is ever
that black and white
people are flawed
we’re complicated creatures
real life isn’t some kind
of fairytale Disney feature

the rules

i’m not sure
what to say to you now
that you’ve gone and changed
the rules around

confidence

you have very little
confidence in me
based on the attitude
i’ve let you see
