When someone ask you who you believe in I hope the first person that comes to mind is yourself. Selfishly I hope somewhere on the short list of other people is me. Because it’s natural to want people you believe in, to believe in you. Even if you fail to believe in me that doesn’t…

A Place Among The Trees

She carries her mistakes like a prison sentence. No ones perfect so logically she would never be free. Surrender reality for disbelief. She fell in love with the idea of being in love. All of that now seems so long ago… She wanted something more. When everything in her environment was saying settle for less….

The Strangers

Everything about you is a wave and I’m falling in love with the ocean. I want the pieces of you left unseen can I drown in your emotions? Plans set sail I’m trying to put ideas in motion. I would travel all seven seas with a message in the bottle just for you to read…

Vanity Mirror

I’m going to start with honesty about some things that may never be. Magic 8 ball is she my destiny? I’m looking in the bathroom mirror trying to see if you’re next me. My old girl should be my new girl because she deserves the best version of me. And for the first time in…

Post card

And by the end of this year I want to be everyone’s favorite writer… I guess I’ll start right here…. I’m from the Eastside, Eastside It’s time to put the kids to bed. I only said that to let you know to let you know it’s time to let go of childhood fears. I’m just…

SoberLove

You only want me when you peaking I’m thinking I should plan an intervention because lately you’re wanting me every weekend. Text messages I should’ve sent to girls I’ll never walk down the aisle with. Late night or early morning I can’t figure out which one it is. We said we would spend all of…

Mud to soil

After I write this and you read this it’s going to prove either you’re not alone or I am alone. When I write it’s like verses not like rappers in the booth but psalms and scriptures. When they try to send me to Hell im asking god to be my character witness and I pray…

Vacation

I use to write about you… Fantasies would swirl my day dreams with hopes I was right about you. That my vision was perfect when it came to the sight of you. Words would consume my mind in the purest way. I use to think about you…. Never needed a watch because you would be…

Besides the point

“Aye not trying to put any pressure on you or anything. Some days I’m not even sure if I still believe in love. All that is beside the point, but do you want to get food? I really want ichiban fried rice and if I go alone the cook who makes the food right in…

Sunday: Forever or a Night

I don’t know if I’m allowed to call you anymore… To be honest if I was and you did answer I don’t know what to call you anymore… I use to refer to you as every synonym to let the world know you were mine. But judging from the date of our last text that…

Interlude…

She’s really into interludes … That part of the album that’s not a full song. Her minds traveling; so her hearts not looking for a home. All I ever wanted out of life that someone that gets me. That when I have my doubts they say that “I got you”. That the way I move…

McCarran Loop

We drove the McCarren loop at 5am listening to music. It was just something to do because we felt like we had nothing prove. There was no one else on the road but some of the lyrics stopped us in our tracks and it felt like we were in traffic. Sometimes the words shared between…
