"wrap me up in lavender thunder;"

Saturday, February 16, 2019


what a blessed & beautiful year it's been.
meetings in the moonlight/
dancing in the starlight;
laughter in the wind
planes in the sky
up & down we go,
hellos & goodbyes.
here comes the sun.
but truly, honestly, deeply
what a lovely time to have been alive.

I always felt that it was wrong/to lay my world in foreign hands
it all got mixed up in my head,
move here/ move there/ move
sun. shadow. sand. snow.
who are you going to be?
a solid question, she says/
any answers? look the other way;
I see a way out & I can hear an echo that begs to be followed
I don't have anything figured out, but does it matter anymore?
i'm sure no one has anything figured out
that's the only thing I do know, really.
I see a way out & I can see the sun on the horizon 
just call me foreigner;

I Don’t Know;

Sometimes I think of you.
Sometimes I forget you existed.
Sometimes the books are enough & sometimes they’re not.
Sometimes I sit & sing along to all the songs that make my heart ache/
Sometimes I dance.

And life is hard sometimes. Things happen that you can’t plan for, things happen to the ones you love and some things make you see it all through his eyes.
People grow apart/ people make mistakes/ the flower blooms & then there’s the moon.
And you grow and you grow and you grow but somehow you’re still the smallest person in the room.

But he’s sick and there’s nothing I can do about it.
But he’s leaving me and there’s nothing I will do to stop it.
And he’s crippled by life without her but she’s the goldest hour.

There she is. glorious/ petrified/ stupefied/ magnanimous. but there she is.

I can’t breathe; I can’t breathe; I can’t breathe. And guess again, I can’t breathe.

(You’ve been here before)

It’s not that serious anyway.

She's Thunderstorms;

have you inhaled me in yet?
toxic fumes/ or so they say,
who am i to talk?
baby, i'd rather be hard to love 
than easy to leave.

the world's moving in slow motion.
freeze frame. eyes meet.
we've sped up now.
but i got news for you, i came broken.
rain fall/
i guess you i let go.

i miss the red dust.
all these pitstops on this planet,
all the crowds i've known,
all these makeshift memories.
say you're not gonna leave me
this place is right where you need to be.
i'm leaving now,
but i'll always miss the red dust of those old roads.

Witness me
Like fire weeping from a cedar tree;

The time has come for different things.
Enriching? Damning? I cannot say but darling, it's all about to change.
Somewhere to your right, she dives into the deep, blue sea.
Somewhere to your left, she bounds into the deep, blue sky.
And right in front of you, she sheds the ashes & bursts into flames.
Take me home:

Forever Dancing With The Devil;

it's been a while.
shy smiles & reminisces. but maybe not so shy anymore.
i think we've all grown up a little more than we thought we would need to, a little faster than we'd imagined we would.
but it's been fun, hasn't it? look me in the eye and tell me this wasn't the year of your life.
weren't they all?
maybe i'm thinking too much. maybe i'm not thinking enough.
we'll be just fine, we'll be just fine, we'll be just fine...i know we will. i just know we will.
it's me before you, but you're standing before me.
we're on the edge, and the adrenaline is coursing.
you step back & i soar;
i guess all i needed was a little nudge to fly.
