next

I can’t wait for tomorrow
the next hour, the next second
and to scale mountains and look down

i can’t wait for leaping through the air
into shimmering waters and floating
next to the sun’s reflection

i can’t wait for the sun to set
then rise once more
and carry with it even more meaning

i can’t wait for spinning
it’s my favorite thing to do
dancing with souls and closing my eyes

i can’t wait for new songs
and hearing the old ones a thousand more times
and shouting out every single rhyme

i can’t wait for the mystery
that never seems to end
and the complexity that lies in everything

Tune

May 14, 2014 § 1 Comment

the same song
every time, a familiar sound
pushing me swiftly through
a tunnel of light on runaway pavement
turning time into traveled miles
and wind, sharp and cold and alive
making hair dance and lifting
hands skyward, that same song
we played that nervous night
in the rain, I always hear it when
I see superheroes and blue dice
and parking lots at night, a road ahead
and stars

The Forgotten Prayer

May 2, 2014 § 4 Comments

simple words
enchantments
of thought

& meaning
shared in a past life
thoughts that once spun
now only living on tinted paper

could they change
everything

if a poet brought the world to its knees
with splashes of ink in lovely lines
tears across a blank canvas

would we be free from chains of hate
and kiss liberty
without concern

if we heard those words
would we be unafraid
and let our feet stray from the ground
float away to a nameless paradise
and find within a prayer
something to believe in

would the world let love be
if we listened to the words
splattered on paper
from the minds
of forgotten souls

would we stray from our own phantoms
fear less
live more
for each other

could words change everything
if we only listened.
