The Lucky Ones

I don’t need

New things

Lovers, collectibles

 

Old weighs heavily

Leaves a dip in the bed

New,  light as feathers

Even with the sheets wet

 

New smothers the old

There is not room in the heart

For two to grow

 

Absorbed impressions

Sour or otherwise

Opening eyes to survive

 

Had the choice

We might choose to be blind

They are the lucky ones

 

Did not count

Time, nor money, nor love

No keeping score

 

The morning after

Apology on our breath

Liquor stained halitosis

 

Choosing paths that won’t diverge

Asking others to follow

The shadows of our secrets

Heart Rot

Let the heart rot
it must decompose
before the seeds can drop
something anew can grow

Slow, the days and weeks
move and turn
lock the doors behind you
love’s fire is gonna burn

Kept swimming back to you
through the visceral tar
never our lips touched
but this love will leave a scar

Never did crawl
across the bed to you
just promise me ‘in another life’
and i will promise you too

king of hearts

holding back the horses, stepping away from the
brink,closer to falling, falling to sink
man of art, but i would not know of truth, except in
search of…
man of beauty, and i can say beautiful, but in search
of perfection
so say to you, king of hearts, man of your word, but
your words don’t start.
lies ask more questions, through parched lips, we
are talking more and listening less
lies are by nature self preserving, entities self
serving, herding our delusions, feeding our rebellion,
our refusal to settle down and be simple
so i say to you man of art, king of your world and of
my heart, i choose to be simple and boring, holding
back the horses.

Go! Go! Go! (lyrics)

She sings pretty
She’s so cute
Watch out boy
Cause she’s coming after you
Watch out, she’s coming after you
Watch out

First, she’ll take you to place that rocks
Then, she’ll take you to a place that rolls
She’ll take you to a place
and save your soul
c’mon, she’ll save your soul, c’mon

You’re playing hard to get
You’re putting on a show
Your lips are saying no
But your eyes are sayin’
Go! Go! Go!
I wanna take you home tonight

Don’t play coy
Don’t put up a fight
c’mon boy i don’t bite
c’mon i wanna take you home c’cmon

First, she’ll take you to place that rocks
Then, she’ll take you to a place that rolls
She’ll take you to a place
and save your soul
c’mon, she’ll save your soul, c’mon

Cavity (lyrics)

As we lay under the covers
I’ll be so good
You’ll never want another
Be so sweet, give you cavities
How could you be so mean to me?

You pull me in, and push me away
Don’t know how long i can play this game
Don’t know how strong you feel anyway
How could you be so mean to me?

I’ll wrap my body in red ribbon
Anything to appear different
I’m the gift that keeps on giving
How could you be so mean to me?

You pull me in, and push me away
Don’t know how long i can play this game
Don’t know how strong you feel anyway
How could you be so mean to me?

As we lay under the covers
I’ll be so bad
You’ll think about another
Make you sad, and turn you blue
How could I be so mean to you?

I pull you in, and push you away
Don’t know how long you can play this game
Don’t know how strong I feel anyway
How could I be so mean to you?
