Lately, I Care


Lately, I care
You only frequent a place
When only a certain 
Someone is there
Lately, I care
That that blessed friend
Doesn’t make an appearance
Like he used to
Lately, I care
That your lingerie arouses you
As much as it does me
Lately, I care
That you can make your hands
And lips
Feel the way mine does to you
Lately, I care
That I cared to notice
That I have been living all along
Lately, I care
That I wasn’t the one 
To teach you how to love me
Lately, I care
That it took an outlet
For me 
Lately, I care
About our adventures
Lately, I care
About when it’ll all end

It’s too late for Love, (When You never even told me You Love me)


It’s too late for Love, (when You never even told me You Love me)

 

Sitting there

And everywhere

I look for You

But you won’t care

 

When I want You

 

I walk alone

On the streets

After leaving home

It just repeats

 

When I need You

 

But it’s hard

To put all this

Down like playing cards

I always miss

 

A better number

 

Where do I fall

In line of the others

When I risk it all

Under the covers

 

Selfish Lovers

 

You should have opened up

And just said, “Ah”

Your love I held in my cup

Like you were on vacation in a spa

 

It’s about time

 

From what I see

You’re not ready, Love

‘Cause I know that it’s too late for love

When you never even told me you Love Me

 

And what I feel

Listen carefully

I wish this thing of ours was real

And you cared for me

But now it’s just too late for love

When you never even told me, You love me

 

I could spend my time

Making dinner

Try to pour the wine

But you look thinner

 

My, You’re changing

 

When You go out

I’m never knowing

What that’s all about

You watching me glowing

 

Now, it’s my turn

 

So, I clean up nice

I have to say

Loosen that vice

You held at bay

 

I’m somebody too

Somebody new

 

Why stop me now

When you always ran

  1. Somehow

I’m using your words, “Yes, I can!”

 

You Did This

 

Honestly

I wish you had rose above

But it’s just too late for love

When you never even told me, you Love me

Judgment


My window breaks

as I stare out

What I see won’t

look back at me

The air is dry

through all the cracks

What is there left

on the side I can’t see?

Even the clouds

fail to appear

the closer I pull my chair near

No birds do sing

Awakening heart-strings

Yet, while I stand for this

it pains me to see nothingness

Sunrise

There go the lies

Shrilling

Thrilling

Is there someone

something willing

to draw my shade

so I can be

what I can be

though I can’t believe

the color of my sleeve

after I grieve?

My window breaks

when I look out

And I can’t tell

what’s looking back at me

The Missing Christmas Card


Love
My heart is my heart
and it beats better with you
near me
beside me
knowing me
As a master of words
I find it so easy to write
but I always want to
say what’s right
You challenge me to be better
Better for you
Better towards you
Ultimately, better for myself
Where I find it easy to say, “Thank You,”
I would rather show you appreciation
so as to not be taken pettilly
Should I step out of bounds,
I hope you are there
Not to catch me,
But to hold my hand
like you do my heart
Can I say, “I Love You” today
and again tomorrow
as a card you enjoy reading everyday?

If Ever met Never


Classy impositions

Obstructed by cruel intentions

The masses live for pretensions

The clergy orchestrates superstitions

              

Flow

Does the fountain of youth

Spewing freshness

Trickling truth

 

If ever

Met never

Dare one say, What Ever

In a manner all too clever

 

When the bell rings

Inside the Watchtower

A lonesome dove sings

Exposing its true power

 

Rumble does the Earth’s belly

Letting the sky know it is craving

Life too strong for the telly

But remain do the steady all worth saving

 

Words delivered

Not by the weak or quivered

From a Book of purity

Undeniable in its surety

 

Careful one must be

To not skew or change one meaning

Though all that is down, not all can see

Let the heart rule the mind for better screening

 

Then when the bell rings

All  of Heaven sings

And He shines down on His creation

Granting the faithful real love salvation

Call My Stand In


What does it take

To keep your love

What a good pair we make

Like hand and glove

 

Don’t my kisses do right

Sometimes I can’t begin

Before we start to fight

Go head call my stand in

 

I see you there

But I can’t see your face

You want to be somewhere

Just not here, but some other place

 

If I can’t do right by you

How can I win

I know what you can do

Call my stand in

 

Somebody knows

How your wind blows

It’s a shame it ain’t me

It’s all gone oh so wrong

Shame on me, way too long

Was I that blind I couldn’t see?

 

But now, I know the game you play

Some might call it a sin

Why should I let you get away

When you can just call my stand in

To say, “Hello”


 

How many words do you need

to hear me say, “Hello?”

How many times do I have to

listen to hear you say, “Hello?”

What do I have to do

to let you know I am weak at times?

Can you hear my tears on

the phone?

Can you feel how my eyes

burn of pain?

“Hello” means as much as

it says

…though my silence could mean

that I’m being mean

A dedication was made to you

in a way that could never be

forgotten

And, in case you forgot

the World heard it

Loud and Clear

To say I need peace and silence

slaps many when all I have ever

known was chaos

Then, he became my best friend

Then, I found my greatest mistake

Do you still need to

hear me say, “Hello?”

I may have to say it with my

head hung low

But just in case I forget

just find chaos

and you will find my voice

And in a brief, steady whisper

you will hear me say, “I’m sorry”

as you bid me farewell

…Though it will be only that

part of my living that is over

 

How many words do you need

to hear me?
