“Inhale/Exhale”
completed on 2.26.17

sometimes this life can be so rough
like sandpaper tearing
the skin right off of me
open wounds and an open heart

the sadness falling
saline rolling down my cheek
the weight of life’s responsibilities
crushing all my dreams
give me relief, throw me anything

sometimes life’s expectations
a rope slipping, a rope tightening
the lifeline in your embrace
your breath, the air my lungs need
the sunshine your love feeds me

this life can be so rough
pins and needles and heartache
but i’ll keep on fighting
’cause your love gave me a heartbeat
your love a reason to breathe
your love pushed life into me

“kell”
completed on 1.4.17

i know that i’m not crazy
but the hands on every clock
know when you’re not in my arms
maybe they’re dragging, as sad as i am
’cause they turn so much slower when you’re away
a game and speed up like my heart when they see you

i know what i was before you
emptiness and a soul in pain
but the first time i held your hand
a fire ignited, nothing will ever be the same

and i’m not sure how to thank you
every day with words that you’re beautiful
but that’s not even half of it
’cause you’re my angel that brought me back to life

so this is just a short note
words of admiration
just for being you
’cause my life is so infinitely brighter
all because of you

the sun’s rays just feel so much warmer
your kiss just tastes so much sweeter
the stars shine so much brighter
with my arms wrapped around you

this life is just a fairytale
all because of you
i have everything in life
every single thing when i’m with you

“in vain”
written on 11.18.15

sunlight’s rays far too brief
the chill of winter smothering summer’s warmth
i’ve reached through the depths of your eyes
midnight melancholy masking the starlight

tears falling in vain
to wash away the pain
the sting of my call for help
falling on deaf ears
alone drenched in all my fears

the thrill of her skin’s touch
crushed by dark waves of discontent
embers dancing in the darkness thought to thrive
not expected to survive

love now viewed from a telescope
as foreign as video on the silver screen
it doesn’t help to dream
when things are exactly as they seem

desperate for sunshine
dreaming out windows overcast
the darkness of my situation
the lightning and the rain
pierced only by my ink pen

“Three Smiles”
written on 6.24.11

you watch him slam the door
as your tears stream to the floor
you look back at a million warning signs
but you desperately want that fairy tale
he’s crushed your hope, stepped on your heart
but he’s the one who lost out

you deserve someone who wants both girls on his lap
who lights the candles twice so each one gets to blow them out
takes a mental picture every time he sees the three of you smile
proud of the life that he has

but you can always rely on me
remember there is so much life to live
and you have so much love left to give
turn up taylor’s fearless and believe that things will change
and if ever you need a sunrise
i’ll be there to brighten your day

because you deserve someone who wants both girls on his lap
kisses their knees every time that they fall
and dreams of the days when they’re tall
reads them just one more story ’til they’re finally asleep
proud of the love that he has
