Love in Yellow


Cover me in Love, Love
Show me your true color
Don’t leave me with bruises
Just so I can make excuses

Cover me well Love, Love
Make me feel like I should feel
Don’t treat me like some ordinary fellow
Paint me in yellow

Cover me happy Love, Love
And kiss me all night long
Don’t mind my bleeding heart
While you try it all apart

I want to wrap myself around you
Holding on and back so tight
Try to have mercy on me
‘ Cause I’m too bright for the light

Cover me Love, Love
Sing to my front and my back
And if I try and get away Love, Love
Just pick up the slack

Cover me in Yellow Love, Love
Red comes on too strong
Cover me in Yellow, Love
A vase of yellow roses so long

You came


You came
without alerting me
Was I to know
that your feet were clean
before you entered?

Now, there isn’t a vacuum
to clean up the mess
You made inside the home
I made comfortable for myself
My self now houses
all that your soul conquered
before

You came
to get me to say,
“I’m sorry you had to wait”
If only I held out a little longer,
You couldn’t have come
and I couldn’t hate you
like I do now

It would have been
someone else
who cared about what
they brought inside

….ism


It’s so damn sad
when You’re in the middle
Crosshairs
Indecision
Joker
Seems everybody’s got their motives
Walking poker faces of votives
Dare You continue to play
The nerve of You walking away
It’s so damn sad
when it’s all about a look
Impassioned still gawkers
seem hooked
as to why their
interview wasn’t booked
Options
Those concoctions
they set to keep You just
where You nailed their perception
of reception
And they thought You
were making the first impression
Bid them adieu
before making a confession

See Me


I hear voices

But no one’s home

All these choices

Yet still, I’m all alone

 

Tell Me

Am I bothering You?

I can still see

Why You can’t tell the truth

 

Do You want me to go

Or let You shout it out?

Feeling so low

Why should I do without?

 

Can’t You touch me

Like You used to?

Still Your Baby

Looking to be Your shoe

Will You ever whisper

Sweet things like You used to?

Whisper Baby, Whisper

In this room built for two

 

I know You don’t know it

But, I was leaving anyway

Couldn’t make it fit

So I convinced myself to stay

 

Now, I see You got something on Your mind

No need to fight with yourself

You’re about to run out of precious time

‘Cause I’m about to start seeing somebody else

 

See Me

Always

See Me

Feel Me

Always

See Me

Uneven little boys

 

and their uneven little toys

 

battle every day

 

every night to keep the bad men away

 

Determined to get their share

 

While somewhat playing fair

 

Basking in the sun

 

are the pure like a Nun

 

Quenching their cool thirst

 

‘til the moon rises from the dust

 

Other toys fascinate the brothers

 

seeking respect from their lovers

 

Even with ammunition

 

still arouses demolition

 

The playing field is uneven

 

for the uneven little boys

 

Though adding machines make some mean

 

storing wealth unseen but green

 

On white paper

 

one becomes the star caper

 

All Robbing Hoods

 

for self-fulfilled goods

 

Lonely at the top befalls the mighty

 

who has no one left to congratulate him rightly

 

One shot to make it

 

If you’re lucky, one shot to take it

 

All Men Are Created Equal

 

Whereas documentation warrants a sequel

 

honoring a cast minus any equally equal

 

The sun catches the light

 

and the moon holds hostage

 

the soul in plight

 

Patting pockets so heavy and packed

 

Boastful are those screaming to be jacked

 

Unevenly unequally little boys

 

Along with their uneven little toys

 

can never grow

 

when their growth counts down below
