Dear B.

You told me that you wished you could have hugged me and held me close to your chest
And it was as though I got thrown back into time and my birth dad was sending me another message through you

I love you and I haven’t been present for most of my adult years
But I swear I hold you close
Your mind is flipping channels faster than I can keep up
And then the remote flicks through my brain waves and I’m trying to keep up with you

You said you hope we don’t leave your side and leave you alone

I won’t leave you, I love you
I won’t leave you, I love you
I won’t leave you, I’m not leaving you

Love your Grandson

Crated Heart.

Getting a crate to stand on, I climbed up and I was scared I’d fall, just as I almost did for you, but for this building, I allowed myself to jump into it’s hollow insides

Eyes darting, searching for the unknown, looking for something to give me life, to spark the imagination that once dimmed

Snap, snap, snap
My camera became one with my eyes and my hands, one with the railings of it’s body

Snap, run, snap, run, snap
Foot steps chasing after the best stance, best place to rearrange my thoughts in
And collect the aftermath

Even though I could see through the wooden heart of it’s structural being, I needed to touch it, lean against it, embrace it’s historic features

Upstairs, animals had left their marks, a balcony overlooked those buried time after time
Racing inside myself, beside myself I stood admiring such beauty

Nostalgic Heavy

Nostalgic for a place
A place I’ve never touched
A place my eyes have never flashed on
A place only my soul knows

Heavy for a place
A place I’ve already touched
A place my eyes have flashed across
A place my soul is still in

Heartless for a place
A place I wish I never touched
A place my eyes shouldnt have ever flashed across
A place my soul didn’t touch, just my feelings

Summer’s Whispers

Lay down and feel the rustling of last summer’s whispers
And listen closely to the way it’s heart tramples through your own

Like a stampede walking over your love
Preparing you to be launched into the stars

Watch the night sky kiss your eyes with it’s ever so light vibration of it’s earthly glow

Slithering Mind

I was slipping through my own mind instead of falling into your’s

I realized it was too late
Because you slithered into the heart of someone else’s soul

And I’m no longer walking over banana peels
And shooting old arrows at Cupid’s heart
