two years ago still

There are no more words
The endless conversations
Need a vacation

Escape the moment
Full of failure, confusion
Brave a whole new world

Running all around
Helping out community
Sink deep into tub

Forever we fight
Every minute of the day
For some happiness

Nectar of the gods
Nestled safely in plastic
Sweet shot of happy

A simple fortune
In the bottom of your purse
Count out the sales tax

A gentle rainstorm
Washing away Texan dust
Purify the day

Another done day
Shuffle back to little nest
Conquer tomorrow

Fear not for your life
Sprinkles McLambchop is here
Have hope, be merry

A scrap of free time
Tangled in calculations
Distract from my life

Water will fall, waves will roll
The sun will shine on

Busy white blood cells
Racing all through my body
Healing many wounds

Enclosed in letter
Handcrafted with care and love
Sweet radiation

Finally friday
Refreshing shower and dinner
Snuggling with blanket

Give me a minute
To scoop up my shattered dreams
Though they cut my hands

Sprinkle all around
False sweetness and light banter
Artificial life

You can rebuild life
Choose the pieces for your board
To hell with the rest

Pouring out my heart
These trials of the moment
Until ink runs out

Release the dragon
Let him feed on my troubles
Devour this day

Craziness abounds
The winds may twist, tear, and howl
But flowers still bloom

In sickness and health
Through the firestorms of life
Til death do us part

Eating like rabbits
Since muscle weighs more than fat
Need to shed six pounds

I don’t wish to see
Let the world wash over me
Until tomorrow

From veins to baggie
A deep burgundy river
To help rescue life

It’s for Halloween
When buying chocolate in bulk
No trick-or-treaters…

More than a necklace
Courageous link to the past
Tiny metal beads

Some random people
Armed with wood ukeleles
Spreading happiness

Where do i go now
Sharks keep circling my boat
Smiling up at me

With such high expectations
For sugary treats

Flung to all corners of earth
All purple covers

Country and city
Blurring lines of astroturf
Windows and sunshine

Far from a mere weed
Mowed down by uncreatives
Purple splendid star

I am the cement
Foundation of family
Without me, you fall

Connected by past
Surging towards peaceful futures
There is always hope

We come, grow, and go
Illuminating our friends
And passing beyond

Worn down by the years
Averting crisis, danger
Just grab it and go

Let me drive away
Chase down a new horizon
Pedal to metal

Scattered all my parts
To the wind, the universe
May they bring you joy

Enjoy wandering
Through the jungle of my life
Looking for sunlight

Feeling so salty
Worn down to my very bones
A sad sack of skin

You hear us stumble
Sounds of anguish in our call
Yet you back away

It’s a whole new world
Less than a mile overhead
Build your sandcastle

You defy logic
Rotten from your inner core
Chaos with a smile

A change in my day
Moments sliding by so fast
As you shift away

Stop talking to me
My head is a volcano
See you tomorrow

Always surprising
Encountering challenges
I can’t overcome

Evidence of love
Spirals all over this world
Little words, gestures

Practice makes perfect
Need to be more well rounded
Buff crackshot genius

Hidden in darkness
Relaxing from a long day
Troubles far away

Manufactured sky
Shuttering my universe
Protect me from rain

two years ago

Orange and purple
Twisted with loving fingers
Sweet combination

A lost holiday
A lone day of remembrance
Still overshadowed

Gaudy and bulky
Slipped on my arm with a smile
Gifted with kindness

Some chocolate cake
Nestled in styrofoam box
Followed by pushups

Ironing clothing
Slightly domesticated
Look smart and fancy

Encased in plastic
Powders, creams, pencils and balms
Enhancing nature

Drowning in sunshine
Sneakers racing down asphalt
Bright bursts of color

Surrounded by light
The laughter, dancing, and love
Of youthful people

Tumultuous spill
Scenery scatters on page
Pouring with drama

Line up, my beauties
Identical pajamas
Under the splendor

Lure of bachata
Music twisting through the air
Sandals swing in time

Product of teamwork
Summer highlight, cake and friends
Impromptu dance class

Simply saturday
Spent reclining in the shade
Flipping through art books

Despite draught and rain
The choke of smog, gusts of wind
We grow to the sky

Composing our life
Magnificent molecules
Essential, water

So tantalizing
Saturated fats, sugar
Process your weight gain

The end of the day
Cozy in denim and kicks
Waiting for sunset

Etched on compact disc
A whole new world, adventure
New life reflections

Splendid happiness
On a ceramic platter
Great day arising

Tall frosted bottle
Glinting amber in the light
Perfect for summer

The sweetest people
On a strange new voyage, deep
Down to my stomach

The lights will lead you
Through the dark forests of time
To the beginning

After a long day
Tea and this dramatic face
Soothe it all away

Cracks on the ceiling
Ripples along the white walls
Block out the sunshine

Rainbow of color
Sliced swiftly with stainless steel
Prepare to saute!

Skip across the pan
Sizzle with barbecue sauce
Decorate my plate

You can’t feel the wind
I clipped you, took you inside
Away from your life

Oozing, pulsing wound
Torn asunder by pullups
Weak body, strong mind

Simple happiness
Woven in colorful threads
These are happy feet

An azure cocoon
Tasked with the impossible
Protect my precious
