Life Isn't All Humpty Dumpty.

I can't stop thinking
about why this world
keeps reaping
so many things
that are broken
and sore.

Or why when
the pieces fall,
they get crushed,
swept up, tossed away
as if they couldn't
have been put
back together again.

Some things can
be unbroken again.

You Never Did.

Somehow there's solace
in the sound of the wind,
but no comfort in the rain,
no silence in the snow.

Whether loudly or softly
swaying, it's just a breeze
that seems to put you at ease.


when you least expect it,
it takes your breath away.

Seamlessly sweeping your mind
up and away into the atmosphere,
leaving us here with the fear
that you may never come down again.

And I Can Only Say that I Miss You.

Once death hits
our hearts will always
be beaten down,
and broken.

Remember that it takes
time to rebuild
and just because
a love is lost
doesn't mean they're
gone for good,

so let's sleep
the sorrow away
and leave all
the lost love behind.

Never forget that
every day is a chance
to realize that in the end
you only did all you could.

I have a Lot on My Mind.

I walk for miles through memories
and see no end to you refusing
to see me even if you tried.

Not even a turn of the head
or a glance of the eye,
and all the battles in my mind
of a friendship that needs
to be left behind,

remind me that
you're not wounded, or broken,
you're not even lost like I am.

So how long will I be thinking of you,
how many years have to go by before
you're finally gone, and the memories
are stolen from my mind?

In the meantime,
I can only be happy
for what I still have.
