she wished

she wished she was
rich like a Valley girl
in California

she wished she was
thin like a runway
supermodel in Paris

she wished she was
a superhero thrashing
bad guys at night

she wished she was
anything other than
the girl she was

rich

rich was how I described 
the double chocolate cake
that brought heaven to my tongue 
yes I was on a diet but you only
live once or twice like James Bond
so why deny myself such riches
when it can be all gone tomorrow

will you let me


will you let me
take away your scars
heal those open wounds
left on your heart

will you let me
take you to the moon
introduce you to stars as
they sing a lovely tune

will you let me
love you for eternity
be your alpha and omega
find a peace within me

will you let me
be all these things
I can’t watch you
diminish into nothing

push


I push up steep hills
arms straining beyond the max
but I keep going

I cannot stop now
too close to the finish line
where my grand prize waits

but there are those times
I wonder is it worth it?
will the risk pay off?

and I do waver
legs go from underneath me
and settle for less

but no surrender
lies within this stubborn heat
so I must go on

these words I write to you

I loved you at twenty
I think I still do at forty
in love with a dream that
will never became reality

I still have those dreams
same places, different faces
but they always come back
to your handsome eyes

you’re that far flung star
still luring in my heart
maybe I should instead
chase fireflies within reach

perhaps I should let go
those dreams and you
let these feelings sink
into deep blue oceans

giving up (or not)


I did not think it
would be this hard
I was ready to
throw my arms up
and just walk away
let the puzzle pieces
fall in whatever place
but my heart was too
invested to just let go  
so I keep pushing on

hold me tight

will you hold me tight
until morning light
you kiss
me soft as the night
and it feels so right
such bliss
that makes my heart bright
and dims the moonlight
like this
