Moments

Moments

In the moment
Words fade
To useless nothings
That have no hope to express
What I feel

In the moment
I faltered
I fell back
I stalled
For my thoughts had abandoned me

In the moment
I had no idea what to say
Or what I wanted
How I felt
Or where it would lead

In a moment
You were gone

In a moment
I knew

The Sea of the Forgotten

The Sea of the Forgotten

I sail out my boat
Into the sea of the forgotten
Despairing for the abundance of new inhabitants
The friends tossed aside have nearly tripled
The missed birthdays are one greater
The ignored achievements are disgustingly large
The unheard words are wailing death

My boat is an old rusty thing to be sure
With a hole right through its core
It sinks slowly as I sit and watch
A fishing pole in my hand
For while I am sinking into the black depths
I continue to hold on to my rod of hope
That one day I’ll reel in enough of me to keep afloat

September 29th – Songs on the Radio

Songs on the Radio

So you listen to the radio
Singing your heart out
Wishing with all you’ve got
That person in the song was you

You sing a little louder now
Trying to block the tears
The world in the lyrics sounds perfect
Why can’t you live there too?

You want to believe
You want to find love
You want to live your dreams
You want to discover yourself

Hold on to your faith, your hope
For I have faith in you
One day you’ll hear a melody and smile for
That person in the song is you
