shot from a cannon
hitting the wall
breaking the waves

driven by urgency
desperation (fear, it's always fear)
driven by history

looking as I leap
have mercy on me
watching your shadow pass
the faith is in my fall

caught up in connection
can't catch my breath
pieces of me tumbling
head over heals

(careful what you wish for)

make me scream
dance with my soul
make that leap of faith
I love this part...

been a while

my mind is quiet, my soul subdued
not sure I like this...I miss the chaos

more to come

shine with me

like old varnish
colors mutate
belief will fade
love can fail
shining bright
like the sun
resigned to go down

breathe it in
while it lasts
when it's gone
climb to the top (alone)
look around
everything comes
at a price

sun sets earlier
as autumn arrives
moon chasing it down
dark and lonely
never ending pursuit
always dies first

take me in
make us whole
keep it in faith
holy and sacred
let's fill this space
with all we can be
holding it close


When I woke up this morning, the world felt right. Sometimes you have to put your life in perspective, you have to look at the highs and the lows and realize that even though it isn't perfect, it's pretty damn good. You wake up and have a cup of coffee, knowing you are loved and feel the warmth of the sun on your face and in your life.

I like where I am, I like what I do and I like where it's going. I'm inspired by green eyes and clear thoughts. Good days being followed by great days. I feel it. Bring it...

your green eyes

green eyes
just a color a mood

sometimes in the middle of...
out of place

you've touched me
reached right out
grabbed me
I sense my grasp on reality.........slipping

I know the love I feel is real
yours mine ours
is it the same for you?

does your mind play tricks on me
excitement making you anxious to know
love can feel like a bus
running me over or
a wind
lifting me like a leaf, gently
blowing me in your direction
I can't tell the difference

help me feel this, make it real

I lie awake
night enveloping me
thoughts of you creep in
stealing my heart's fear

longing for your touch
soft and sweet, purposeful
friend, lover, savior
insecurities melt away

wish I were with you
closing the distance
discovering our potential
detaching from the pain

passion is hard to find
even harder to hold
you give me faith
we give me hope

live, love, learn with me
don't fear the night
it belongs to us now
stay and burn...

like a house on fire
