Tag: regret


realizations from foggy recollections
a touch on the forehead and a kiss on my cheek
ending up in the cluttered bathroom
of a cheap motel room
bruised and bleeding thinking of him not here
if only…the words on my lips
as he whispers apologies
maybe meant for someone else but said to me
i question my beliefs and let a long overdue
tear fall

state line

i’m always parked on the line
might be county, might be state
it could even be that thin line
between genius and madness
sometimes they just can’t tell
now i know what freedom is
it’s paving your own road
listening to the rhythm of your heart
i guide life by the moment
the gut wrenching feeling
in your hungry stomach
while you beg change for
cigarettes and coffee
it will never cease to amaze me
the way people survive
in ways all their own
mine is someone to take care of me
night after night in
someone’s arms and
numbing it all away
i think it’s time to grow up
start existing just to live
but why can’t we just remember
what it’s like to be young
and totally unaware of the days
that will come in the future
following the proud highway
one step at a time

one night

i spread myself like a blanket
under you and suspend
my motions in time to
taste the wickedness of regret
i want to watch as it
all goes up in flames
and sends my prayers in smoke


red wine and whining
about unemployment
the difficulties of
learning a new language
i feel like my star
once rising
is falling
that i have nothing
left to say
left to do
i’ve seen half the world
but only a tenth
of myself
so i stay in
my dirty jeans
and feel sorry
for myself
when i have all
the potential
in my calloused hands
