Tell Me

Tell me that you understand,
Even though you can’t.
Tell me I can count on you,
Even though I won’t.

Tell me it will all work out,
That it’s getting better every day.
Tell me you don’t want for more,
Even though it’s not okay.

Tell me that you love me so,
And that our love is true
I may not always say it back,
Even so, I do.

uncharted pain breaks
out of foul cocoons of white

Spring Inquisition

Who told poor Robin that Spring had sprung?
What Judas could have sent her to this place
where waters are sure to freeze again? And,
when she learns there are no worms, no wonder
why her face will show as red as her breast.

lie sweetly…

not again not you
can’t take anymore bad news
lie sweetly and smile

just think positive
don’t let them get you down now
lie sweetly and smile

Lord help me get thru
or help them so I’ll need none
hello? are you there?

I didn’t think so
back to smiling and lying
inside I’m dying

enough about me
what can I do to help you?
lie sweetly and smile

Picture Perfect

a thousand lies

a thousand dreams

a thousand misconceptions

but, barely ever worth

more than just a few


picture perfect

fades  to black

back to the dark room

were it only developed in

imaginations running


a thousand tears

a thousand mistakes

a thousand years gone by

but, never was worth

more than just a few



“I think it’s time, we give it up
And figure out what’s stopping us
From breathing easy, and talking straight”
