“the end”
written on 3.2.16

a line drawn in the sand
blurred by winds of frustration and the unknown
i witnessed our bright future dim to night
and lost grasp of your loving hand

a downward spiral consuming us
we both turned to medication
our life raft really a sinking ship
a fairytale crumbling in front of us

we moved our lips and made small talk
went through the motions and played the part
ignoring the depth led to a bleeding heart
and now my love has all bled out

and we both could point a finger
raise our voice and make verbal jabs
but that won’t bring us back
’cause we self-destructed
and now there’s nothing but aftermath

tied together by a promise
hope of a better life
but I no longer see you as my wife
too many years of heartache and strife
the end of everything wrong or right

“crack underneath”

“crack underneath”
completed on 12.15.15

the sliver of the moon
trying to pierce the night
because it’s better to go out fighting
than be swallowed by the dark

the winding road underneath
dimly lit, covered in sleet
struggling to thaw, avoid the freeze
the change a couple degrees could make

so maybe this is karma
for stealing the sun once underneath
the wind once meant to fill his sail
oxygen too thin for the two of us
the death of everything around us

whether you’re clawing out a landslide
or feeling the ice crack underneath
the uncertainty is the only thing clear
fighting for composure versus everything you fear

the fog of ambiguity
too dense to see the way out
your fear of the unknown
the death of everything you’ve known

the weight of life’s expectations
pressing my face underwater
too suffocating to breathe
gasping for what’s underneath

so maybe this is karma
for pushing the tide against its own
and you hate yourself
for life granting a brand new day
don’t let yourself get in the way
