Seven little words

April 17, 2018

Seven little words built the blade
Twisting like a steak knife
In my heart

I really like you for a friend
(I always knew this thing would end)

Seven little words that never fade
Echo like a foghorn
In my head

I really like you for a friend
(Now I have parties to attend)

Seven little words my hell made
Tearing like a buzzsaw
At my soul

I really like you for a friend
(It was amusing to pretend)

My biggest hurt was hurting you

April 5, 2018

My biggest hurt
Was hurting you
I’m dumber than
A worn out shoe
Ain’t nothing
I could ever do
To make up for your pain

I sit and cry
And fret and moan
Deserve to spend
My life alone
I miss your smile
And your cologne
I need another brain

Your memory
Is all I get
The sweetest girl
I ever met
And happiness
I can’t forget
I live my life in vain

a million bloody teardrops

March 21, 2018

A million bloody teardrops
Drying out my soul
A thousand days without you
Ain’t no bottom of the hole

The only thing I have
Is nothing
The only thing I did
Was injure you
The only thing I feel
Is empty
Cuz you’re the only one
Who loved me true

I only know tomorrow
Will be sadder than today
I know I had it all
And I let it slip away

The only thing I have
Is freedom
The only thing I want
Is me and you
The only thing I do
Is break things
The only thing I know
Is I love you

The Melody Lingers

February 8, 2018

I cannot unhurt you
I can only walk away
I hope we find tomorrow
What we cannot give today

Everything I am
And all I’ll ever be
Connects to who you are
Connects to you and me

Bleeding in the twilight
Of a special melody
The tune that hurts and heals
Is the love you gave to me

woopty doopty doo

January 6, 2018

i’ve been sniffing all the flowers
i’ve been dancing on the dew
you’ve been giving the impression
there could be a me and u

dont wanna play no 20 questions
just wanna spend some time with u
already know enough about ya
from the things that u do

let’s go walking in the park
it’ll just be me and u
we can get to know each other
we can woopty doopty doo

we can talk about the weather
we can sing a little tune
we can listen to the starlight
in the magic of the moon

big sky

December 2, 2017

Big sky
Red truck
Trusty old hound

Big sky
Long stretch
Covering some ground

Big sky
Freedom
Miles of blooming dirt

Big sky
Heartache
The woman that I hurt

Big sky
Long days
What I gotta do

Big sky
Highways
Rolling back to you

From Paris to the Nile

November 16, 2017

Pick your diamond pick your pearl there is beauty in the world
Macy Gray, et al.

You’ll never see a sunset
Hanging on the wall
You can’t buy any moonlight
At your local mall

You can find a billion
Emeralds and pearls
In the overwhelming joy
Of a bunch of boys and girls

I could dig up every gemstone
From Paris to the Nile
I’ll never know a treasure
Greater than your smile

the warmth of you

September 9, 2017

the warmth of you
melts away the hurt
love like a river
washing out the dirt

the song of you
pulses through my mind
your tender melody
compassionate and kind

the joy of you
sparkles like a star
I wish I could absorb
everything you are

if you ever got a problem

August 5, 2017

if you ever got a problem
or if you’re feeling down
you only gotta tell me
I’ll come riding into town

when walls are collapsing
and you can’t escape your trouble
I’ll be there in a minute
to protect you from the rubble

when life is an inferno
and things are looking dire
you’ll see me rushing in
to pull you from the fire

I’ll deliver you from danger
I’ll rescue you from strife
I’ll be your rope ladder
I’ll be your jaws of life

happiness is sad song

July 1, 2017

Happiness is a sad song
Charles Schultz, from the book Happiness is a Warm Puppy

Everything was beautiful
Until it went wrong
Happiness
Is sad song

Weeping for Hecuba
And all those hurts beyond
Happiness
Is sad song

Poking ancient agony
Clutching what is gone
Happiness
Is sad song

Accepting my reality:
I loved you all along
Happiness
Is sad song
