I didn't learn a lesson by breaking my wrist while rollerblading.
I didn't learn a lesson by accidentally pressing the gas instead of the break and almost running into the garage door.
I didn't learn a lesson by going back to the person I love after they hurt me.
I learned a ...
Blue as the sea
Drowning my heart in your words
Slapping the smile off my face
Like the waves on the shore
Of my world
Your sinister grin
Seeping into my dreams
Like the sand sifting through
And I wonder
Why am I here?...
I miss the ways your hugs smelled
How I'd hold you a little tighter
And wouldn't let go
So I could get one last inhale
Of coffee and aftershave
I miss the way your laugh echoed
I swear I could hear it from
You didn't believe me
But the echoes still sound in my he...
I wish I was a river.
I'd carry myself over the world that I once knew
Touch the new terrain of my life
And flow over the unfamiliar crevices of humanity.
I'd wash away yesterday's disappointments
And bring with me the hopes of tomorrow
The valleys would be my friends
On rainy days,
I wish you grace.
In sunny skies,
I hope you soar.
On starry nights,
just sit and gaze.
With carefree laughter,
I wish you more.
The fresh cut grass,
just stop and smell.
With endless love,
I wish you well....
You were in my dream last night.
The kind of dream where you feel like you're not dreaming
But you know you are because it's too good to be true
And I knew
Because you were in my dream last night.
I saw you from a distance and for a second
It was like you were always there,...
At the edge of the hospital bed
I feel a thousand miles away.
Can he hear me?
I hope he can hear me.
My heart ushers his eyes to open
Only to find stillness in return.
I want to paint his face
Put the color back in his once rosy cheeks.
Just yesterday that smile lit up the room.
Now the be...
My mind goes back to the fall days
Leaves drifting from the trees
I memorize the color
Branches that my hands grab ahold
Slipping feet that fail to climb
Struggling to stay out of life's reach
Breaking the grip, I reach the sky
Touch the clouds with my fingertips
Dreaming of better ...
