Welcome to my workshop! This page is a little window into my head. These are thoughts and poems I've written at different times and at different moods. Some mean more, some mean less. Some are fictional and some are based on very real events. Enjoy!
I've traveled so far cross mountains and seas
I've learned not to listen and do as I please
The rhythm around me like bees in a swarm
I rest in your presence, it's keeping me warm.
I've had so much color, first black and then white
I've tested my wings and I've felt them take flight
The comfort of oblivion was all that I knew
Until I broke free and then I lost you.
I've known so much love, first the ups then the downs
I know what they meant when they sent in the clowns
The places are people and memories that grew
And then disappeared like the soft morning dew.
I am not religious, not sinful nor pure
Not very determined, but never unsure
I'm right where you left me and right here I'll stay
So that maybe one day you'll be headed my way.
I know that I've wandered, but never astray
Though I felt bewildered when I saw you today
The numbness came creeping, this feeling's a curse
The pain at the sight of your hand taking her's.
My old friend is misunderstood
So undeserving but up to no good
He wants even more than the world at his feet
And he ruffles his hair when he's near to defeat
When I told him hello he left me to cry,
So what kind of friend was he or am I?
My wrath could move mountains and that's what it did
I put him in a box and glued on the lid
I have not forgotten nor will I forget
My old friend is covered by veils of regret
Soon we'll be gone, we'll have crossed the big sea
Our memories are back and for now so are we
My old friend is careless my old friend is young
We did something stupid and made it feel wrong
We lost precious time and acted all strange
His mind was entangled and that wouldn't change
And though I have realized it's best left alone
Maybe someday we'll read it and laugh at this poem
I know how weeks and then years will pass by,
We'll still have each other, my old friend and I.
