never truth

The words were all over me
creeping through the spaces in between my fingers,
and sticking my tongue to the roof of my mouth.

The layers of meaning roared across the surface where only silence stood still,
echoing memories of something I once dreamed
not quite as beautiful as this.

Grounded with this butterfly pin you stuck in my back
stabbing my eyes with your hungry pain
soft with the song of the never truth, that I can't say.

playing the game

My life snuck up on me
she put her hands over my eyes and said guess who?

That was 30 odd years ago, 
and I'm still blind 
and guessing 
maybe it's you.

murdering the musical

You have the right to remain silent, but then again you could also burst into song.

all along

And in that moment I knew,
I didn't need to GET what I wanted,
because I already had it,
 already was it,
 and I'd just been pretending like all of you.

everythings fine

All the things that we say,
and the thoughts that we think
the wishes I never even wanted to come true
Everything that might have happened
falling into that same black whole
that beautiful smooth darkness
where it all began
the curve of your face
touched with love itself
more than time could ever tell
exploding in slow motion
losing forever
An elephants tears
for we remember nothing
and to this we shall be true.
