Side by Side

When I look at my life now
And what it was
I realize two things:
I haven't changed

But that's on the outside
Something on the inside has
So many emotions
That have been gotten, forgotten, and yet earned for more

So what should happen now?
Love in so many forms
Hate burns my throat
But they are both still there

So cover me when I smile
And hide me when I'm sad
If you talk to me when I'm angry
I'll make you cry

If you think it doesn't matter
It does, it does, it does
However, I've let you know to much already
So now I say ciao.

Don't fight; It comes naturally

Create; Destroy

My life is folded up
Crumbled in notes on the floor
I wrote so many
Crumbled on the floor expressing my everything

I wrote one about how much this feeling overwhelms me
I have never thought of someone so much before
And I want to hold you in my arms
Though you'd more easily enfold me

But I don't know what to do
I don' know how to say this to you
But I know I need to talk to you soon
So maybe I'll just give you a rose, or a note, or words

Then I wrote to another
About how my life has changed in the past few months
And I don't know what else to say to you
Then the next two things

Another love is here
And I have never felt so much hurt and pain
In my soul then now
Even though it was only twice

So there's an issue of trust
Priority, and being on time
It think that's about all

And so that's all that I have time for
I believe it is now time to go
For I am a poet and songwriter; not an essay writer
Where's my guitar so I can write this down?

Notes are as Good as the Paper They're On

Sour Turns Sweet

Oh you think you're so sweet
With your sugar coated needs
That deceptive smile
Would fool even the most cunning crocodile

But I took a bite of that which you gave me
And I found it turned my stomache
I wanted to let it all out
But I just swallowed

And that's how I took it for a while
Never growing accustomed to the taste
Bite small, Swallow down,
Fake Smile

Then one day I broke it
Because it was not something easy for me
And you listened and smiled and told me
"I know"

I looked blankly at your face
And you took my hand
And told me it was a test
And I almost didn't past

But you would never let that happen anyway
