    Mistaken You unfold

    and stretch upward. Plump, golden, lovely in your simplicity. You imagine that maybe, possibly... You just might be beautiful. You just might be important. You just might be wanted. But then, without notice... You’re cut down. You’re poisoned. You're absently trampled...

    The cold winter wind pierces my skin,

    Weary and worn out, I don't know where to begin, The fading sun has left a lonely man with nothing more then a shadow of a grin, Battered and bruised and often misused, Forever left in darkness and often abused, Life has no meaning with nothing to lose, Time has made its...

    my love gave me a safety vest.

    it seems a simple thing.. wasn't a Lamborghini, or a condominium... A first-class trip to Paris, or even a county fair.. and if i were to tell him, he probably wouldn't understand.... he said I should probably wash it..... It smells a bit you see, (and it does) But it smells...

    Is life just one big ruse?

    Time just passing by with the blues, Filled with ups and downs and bad news, What is before us, do we really get to choose? Through all the pain and darkness we look for clues, But most of the time we hear just boos, Is it really all about paying just our dues? Do we...

    It squeals in like a bullet train

    and speeds up as it goes. It doesn’t stop for flailing arms, it drags them to and fro. It takes them through a misty house it leads them to their door. And when they’ve finally fallen out it pulls them in for more. Each time it leaves such awful scars on hopes it cannot hear...

    cold obsidian sky rustle the dead leaves I’m

    stuck somehow in oblivion. isolation wraps around compacting the crowd I’m stuck somewhere in the middle. unbelievably ignored. unrealistically forgotten. unforgivably rejected. until tomorrow.

    The empty indigo of the evening falls on the

    wet green earth and my heart sighs. The blinding white day was filled with feverish red activity and nothing was finished. The navy of midnight embraces the warm golden arms of you and I find peace. --Written in 1989

    Don't tell me where to go from here,

    don't mock me with your tone. Don't sift through the mistakes I've made, don't ask me how it goes. It seems to me you've seen it all, your fortunes well in tow. But you're blind to the most certain fact, there's always room to grow.

    A good friend is somebody you can trust,

    My Thoughts On Love.

    Sometimes When it feels Like Love It really Isn't. It may be Caring. It may Just be an Illusion. Delusion. I think It's only Real When it is Shared. Decided. It's not an Emotion. It is a choice. There is no Falling Fireworks You choose It .... Or not. :)

    This one is again more of a bad song.

    Since I've been driving a lot, I've been listening to the radio more. There are a lot of songs about drinking and some of them seem a bit dangerous -- in a sense, encouraging date rape. Lady Antebellum, for example, sing "It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need...

    I see you sitting back there.

    In the dark. Your narrowed eyes on me. I feel you back there. In the fog. Casually pulsating with warning. You're just biding your time. Waiting for your chance to dominate and lay me low.
