Moonbeams


It’s true, you may be the sun
But know this, I have rays too
It’s just that none can see them
When blinded by the light of you
Yes, my glow is subtle
But it has its own character too
So give me a chance to shine
And I just may surprise you.

Gypsy heart


She’s leaping off a cliff
She’s dancing in the rain
Running naked down the beach
Like she was born to be insane
Racing to the water
Skinny dipping at high tide
Forget about the clothes
She’s already stripped of pride
Twirling barefoot in the grass
Eyes focused, making art
Every day, a fresh start
For the feisty gypsy of my heart.

Always yours


Don’t you worry
You have to know
You hold my heart
You’ve made it grow
And it will be yours
For evermore
Because you’re the one
Whom I adore
So don’t look on him
With jealous eyes
Know I’m immune
To other guys
Know I’m yours
And yours alone
My mind, my heart
My flesh, my bone
Know no one else
Can compete
No one else can
Have your seat
Upon the cushion
In my heart
No one could ever
Claim a part
So don’t think or
Hesitate or pause
Know that I am
Always yours.

Easter Sunday


How’d you come to be so cruel?
How’d you come to cause such pain?
Is this what you wanted?
To believe you’d make it rain?
Well now it’s raining blood
And flesh and guts and tears
Bleeding hearts of innocents
And of you and of your peers
What sort of mental illness
Forms such a breed of psychopath?
Tell me, what kind of madness
Forms a man without a heart?
A man who’d pull the trigger
To kill himself and hundreds more
Men, women and children
Tell me, are you keeping score?
What sort of heaven
Do you believe that you could reach
On a tsunami wave of blood
Over a flesh covered beach?
How’d you come to be so ruthless?
What makes a man so cruel?
Your hatred burns like fire
Where could you find such fuel?
You may have left us shattered
But we will persevere with love
And we will triumph over evil
You can be sure, we’ll rise above.

Your way


There’s something about the words you say
The way you insist I’ll be yours someday
And nothing and no one can stand in your way
Because my heart is your goal and you’re not here to play
Something that makes me think that I’d be okay
If you broke through the surface and somehow got your way.

Your fire


You keep saying you don’t love me
But then you give me hope
And I’d rather burn within your fire
Than waft away from you like smoke
So even though it hurts so much
Even though I’m scarred
I keep serving up my heart to you
Broken, bleeding, black and charred.

The right choice


I know in spite of everything
That she has stuck with you
There’s been hurt and fights and conflict
But you both have seen it through
And though you seem to think
That I may be The One
How can I assure you
That we’d last in the long run?
So even though I care for you
I’m not afraid to draw the line
I know you’ll be safe in hands
More capable than mine
So friend, draw her close to you
And hold onto her tight
Be confident in knowing
That your final choice was right.
