love madness

September 15, 2020

all day long
I think of you
subsisting on
your residue

too good to be true
too good to be true
too good to be true

warmth and style
and royal blue
all wrapped up
inside of you

too good to be true
too good to be true
too good to be true

your hair, your smile
your ballyhoo
I would pay
to be your shoe

too good to be true
too good to be true
too good to be true

sophistication
through and through
you’ll never play
the ingénue

too good to be true
too good to be true
too good to be true

I live for love
I never knew
the psycho ward
is overdue

too good to be true
too good to be true
too good to be true

thank you for letting me love you

July 18, 2020

thank you
for letting me
love you

I had a pocket
full of empty
when you picked me
and dreamt me
into another world
you’re a special
kind of girl

thank you
for letting me
love you

I was crying out
for cover
for a friend, a muse
a lover
you’re my salvador
you were everything
and more

thank you
for letting me
love you

there’s no way
to repay
and now you’ve
gone away
everything I ever do
only happens
cuz of you

cruel and crazy universe

May 5, 2020

rain outside your window
breath upon my arm
cruel & crazy universe
ain’t doing me no harm

deliver me from tempest
in a cozy little room
shelter me till morning
with your body’s silent tune

all is made to fade away
and every creature dies
people come and people go
and only love abides

every moment

March 31, 2020

The way you changed my life
No, no they can’t take that away from me

Ira Gershwin

i could have
loved you better
in a million
different ways

you’ll be in
every moment
till the bygone
of my days

everything
that came before
was leading
up to you

everything
i’m feeling now
is from your
residue

i’m better
cuz of you
in a million
different ways

you’ll be in
every moment
till the bygone
of my days

somewhere there’s a rainbow

February 1, 2020

happy-couple

somewhere there’s a rainbow
as beautiful as you
i ain’t never seen it
but they tell me that it’s true

somehow you appeared
when i was falling apart
you sheltered me from chaos
with your beautiful heart

sometimes life is vicious
it takes everything away
it left me with a hurting
that’s impossible to say

somehow i keep going
what else can i do?
with a little bit of hope for
the world that gave me you

Precious like you

November 23, 2019

Precious like a songbird
Precious like sunshine
Precious like a kind word
Precious like dinnertime
Precious like you

Precious like a rainy night
Precious like a full moon
Precious like a lullaby
Precious like a show tune
Precious like you

Precious like a rainbow
Precious like your first tooth
Precious like a meadow
Precious like the whole truth
Precious like you

Precious like a playround
Precious like a bouncing ball
Precious like an old hound
Precious like your grandpa
Precious like you

I always knew you loved me

October 3, 2019

I always knew you loved me
No matter what I did
I always knew you loved me
You never kept it hid

I always knew you loved me
No matter what I said
I always knew you loved me
In your heart and in your bed

I always knew you loved me
And you know I love you too
You’ll always be inside me
And everything I do

a trillion times more

August 19, 2019

O fairest of all creation, last and best
Of all God’s works, creature in whom excelled
Whatever can to sight or thought be formed

John Milton, Paradise Lost

the sunshine in your laughter
the poetry in your style
the wiggle in your swagger
the music in your smile

your wicked sense of humor
your feet, your face, your hair
the fire in your anger
the fancy in your flare

the tender in your strength
the lovely in your heart
you’re a trillion times more
than the sum of your parts

every thing about you
every little part
knocks me on my bootie
you’re my favorite work of art

kicked in the heart

August 10, 2019


We’re good together
It’s ready to start
Will I jump over the moon
Or get kicked in the heart?

I hear a song playing
For me and for you
Is it Over the Rainbow?
Or Little Boy Blue?

I’m a little bit timid
If you’ll pardon my scars
Does this stairway go down
Or straight to the stars

I’ve been here before
And it didn’t end well
Will you be my salvation
Or my ticket to hell?

a thousand ways I could have been better

June 15, 2019

There’s a thousand times
I could have been better

I got angry
I said the wrong word

There’s a thousand ways
I could have been better

Didn’t ever show up
For your world

There’s a thousand things
I could have done better

I should’ve been
The guy you deserve

There’s a thousand ways
I could have been better

Now I know how low
It all can go
