Lying here, while
lying here,
those icy words still pierce my mind.

The record shows that hope still floats,
I tell them all the time.

So I patiently soothe my eyes.

I picked up my hope from the mope that
was sinking my boat,
and I realized

That hope still floats.

The sun accentuated,
and asked me for a kiss,

It’s beautiful,
don’t you see?

I took a run,
and I laid down.

Heavy clouds said “I won’t be around.”

The sun accentuated,
and asked me for a kiss.

Honey filled lips,
welcome in a kiss
almost lost inside the point of
near whatever.

verbal light, verbal life,
not too cool, just warm,
and right.

Little did we know,
Hot cocoa and snow,
would write three words across our fingers.
you know,
yes you know,
so no need to go.

Don’t look at me,
and make me weaker babe,
Just kiss me I’ll feel stronger baby.
I just wanna be lazy,

That’s right.

Tell me,
what’s the meaning of
the feeling.

If things aren’t so

are we just escaping and slightly
all this sweet love that we could be

Like maybe in the sun,
where things have just begun.

& no one’s won.

I might as well,
hold you well,
if only you want me too.

I might as well,
kiss you well, honey
If only you allow me too.

Honey, Honey
Soulful and lovely,
I might as well go and tell

how much you mean to me.

Sugary teardrops matched
the November rain,
Sugary yes, but they
couldn’t stop the pain, no.

Had soulful dreams of river flow, yeah
I just wanted you to know.

That these and those
savory, sugary teardrops
Sure do and don’t
mean a lot,
Unless you put in the work

To make room for love so divine.

It’s not a test of who is the best.
More so questions, more or less.
Sugary teardrops, Do
Get the best of even,
the best of us,

To Smile
Does it hold your love
That you loved so tenderly
So long ago?
Does it stretch it’s arms
to employ a new love,
even though you still haven’t let go?

Do you reminisce in the kiss
that your teardrops grant your pillow?
Does your heart know, or is your mind forcing it so
The tenacity of the heartbreak
hits you, and it won’t be


Thinking about you as I watch
the moments we shared,
flash by like a lightning bolt
in the teardrop that effortlessly stains my pillow.
And I miss you even more
‘tho you don’t talk to me,
‘tho you don’t even know.

but I to smile because my heart carries on
the love that we once shared.
