“Novel”
completed on 9.7.12

i spent the bulk of my life on the east coast
it should make up most of my history
but my previous chapters aren’t half the length
as the one currently spent finding myself

i’ve lost faith
i’ve crossed doubts
i’ve had times when i just scream and shout
but it’s discovering myself
that this life is truly about

there are days when i can’t figure out
what this chapter is supposed to be about
i search for love and i find hope
then i get spun around
just to start all over again

i watch over you
i feel your pulse wearing out
fading like the passion in your eyes
i can tell your pen’s running out of ink
as you write the final pages of your life

you remind me how brief our novel can be
making life more like a short story
i’m thankful for my memories
but i still have more to write
’cause i’m still dreaming of seeing you in all white

i’ve lost faith
i’ve crossed doubts
i’ve had times when i just scream and shout
but i won’t give up
’til i show you what true love is all about
