“smolder”
completed on 6.16.19

this has gone on far too long
decades hauling these memories
your ghosts in my rear view
a past that always haunts me

its been a while
but i still see your smile
maybe i continue to feel this pain
’cause you threw my love away

i see your face
in the droplets of every drink
i stir the regrets
but can’t seem to drown you out

this is a letter best unread
i’ll strike a match
before the ink sets in
’cause these words were never meant for you

flashbacks in the flame
memories of us smolder away
i need to forget, let this burn
to finally feel whole again

i thought i could leave
run away and start brand new
let myself heal
but i never could outrun you

so this has to be my chance
to burn the past and end this trance
let the memories fade
and get out from under your shade

the emptiness without you
completed on 5.19.16

this world can be so empty
filling trash bags with material things
always grasping for the next rung
an endless maze with no way out

you can chase the things that leave you hostage
get trapped in a hopeless daydream
a false belief in everything
an emptiness ’cause you can’t find peace

but if you ever dust yourself for prints
you’d find mine all over your heart
from holding up your soul and dreams
’cause all i’ll ever want is the best for your life

i’ll never be in the spotlight
the only thing that flashes is my smile
i only hope to be your mason
to help build your foundation up

and when the rain and hail fall down
i’ll shield you and keep you warm
our flame will light up this town
give you faith from any breakdown

i’ll wipe away all your tears
save you from life’s fears
give you all my years
’cause all i’ve ever wanted is what’s best for you

“You vs. Me”
completed on 9.18.12

you say that you’re a hopeless romantic
that you and i are one in the same
but you don’t see love the way i see it
’cause you refuse to acknowledge the fallout

love is not for sport
love is not a game
pain is not something easily washed away
where a heart can forever fade away

there are a million stars at night
just like the odds of finding
the perfect person for your life
but you don’t care about searching for a wife

i used to be just like you
until i realized she’s the one who got away
now i spend every day hoping
love will come back my way

if i have learned anything from you
it’s that life doesn’t give you anything
you pray and then have to go get it
hoping you find a love that’s true

if i could go back
though you can never go back
you have to live with missed chances
and fight to find future romances

you don’t see the bigger picture
realize how empty life is without love
if there is one thing you can learn from me
it’s that love is this life’s master key
