Certainty

There’s
room for
us here,
and I’m
almost
certain
there’s more
where
this came
from.
Just
let
these
dim
clouds
fall
where they
may,
and
I
promise
the sun
will
show
us her
sexy
side.

This,
I’m
almost certain
for
sure.

Around These Parts

It’s
too
hot
in
here, and
the
day
hasn’t even
closed
her eyes
to
rest away
the
layers
that
we often
bring
to
the table.
At
times, it’s
amazing
we’ve
made it
this
far, but
I know
these
parts
like
backs of
hands
and chords
in
between
chords,
and
we’re not
too
far
off the
beaten.

Yeah,
it’s
hot in
here
and your
lips
are
shadowing
our
escape,
so
feel free
to
slow
your roll
a
bit,
since
around
these parts,
we’re
beyond
clandestine.

Yeah,
I know
these
parts like
the
backs of
hands, and
those chords
in between
chords,
but what
I don’t
have
is
that thing
that
draws
me to
you.

In Due Time

In
due time,
we’ll
stand
like giants,
and
make Mars
gasp
in
disbelief,
or
bring Zeus
to
a new
understanding
of
where
his
throne
really
sits. In
due time,
we’ll find
a new
path and
we’ll
be happy
that
we did.

In due
time,
you’ll
give the
world your
Law, and
I’ll write
poems
that
give
way to
new versions
of this and
that, but
nonetheless,
in due
time
we’ll be
together
and comfortable
in
our own
skin.

I don’t
mean
to sound
too
arrogant, but
in
due time
I’m
gonna
grab your
heart
and make
you
wish we’d
done
that
years
ago.

Love Me When It Hurts

We often fail each other when we start to overthink our purpose in being around each other.

We gain no room to breathe when we only allow so much room to be allocated in a small and uncomfortable space.  Left to our own devices, we shouldn’t be afraid to fail around each other, and we should be afraid to simply not know the answer. If anything, we should be extremely proud of the fact that someone else is truly needed to fight the good fight with us, and that life’s daggers are mere toothpicks thrown at a whale when you are around. If anything, I should feel like our best days are millions of miles in front and behind us, and that this moment is the only real thing that we can love without filters.

Feelin’ me?

See, I’m a poet but I’m also a realist in the sense that life’s choices are never too complicated when one can seriously take a stern look at himself and ask, “How could I not?” In this exact question, we allow ourselves to simply throw a little wind to caution and not the other way around.

As We Grow

It’s never
too
soon
to agree
to disagree,
but let’s
hold
hands in
tight
grips,
carry one
lip to
another
in a gentle
flow,
and allow
the
sun to
make a
path for
us before
we do.

And
yes, it’s never
too
late
to play
guesswork
as to
whether we
love each
other,
but let the
wind
dictate
our emotions
and if
anything, let
us
put caution
in
an unpredictable
place.

Of course,
it’s
never too
late
to grow
old
together,
just as
long as
you,
every once
in
a while,
let me
tell
you
about
us
growing
young
together.
