Linda at Water's Edge

You faced me
There in the dark
In my dark
You faced me
And I saw your eyes
Reflecting my cries
You faced me
As the waves crashed
As my mind clashed
You faced me
You, aware of pain
With mouth on refrain
You faced me
Power in empathy
You hold your sympathy
You faced me

For a Quiet Morning

The universe is there for you
To pour over and over about
If you stand still in the stillness
Being careful with your projections
You may find a deep stranger
You see, I have seen myself
In nearly everyone that I have met
But to relate is not to own
Admiration should not become being
Who is your deep stranger

Blame to Pay

I thought I was doing all I could to please you
I realize I sought mostly just to seize you
Stop you from growing, to freeze you
I wanted to hold you like a picture frame
Make sure you stayed with me, that you stayed the same
But stagnant air doesn't feed the flame
I don't think I have anger to spit anymore
It is alright to grow, to not fit anymore
And I'll put down the candle not lit anymore
I think now I know I have Blame to pay
It may take years to say all I have to say
But I do hope you read it, here or some way.... Someday

I am young, and I know that I'll get past this
I can be left alone to my own devices
People can deal with pain, but know gin suffices
Ain't got a million in the bank, but I have my vices
We can sober up, but we know that there are prices
And I know, I KNOW, you have some great advices
But be clear, no matter how it is you get to slice this
I'll be OK, if I can have my vices

I don't know who God is
I never met him
I may have seen him once
In the face of a person I know
A slight glimmer in their drunk eyes
I don't know who Muhammad is
He's never spoken to me
But perhaps I heard him
When someone said "Good morning"
Or "Thank you"
I don't know who Buddha is
Or Jesus
But I know myself
And I've met people
And that matters

This is Real

Someone told me yesterday
That this wasn't even about me
That soon you come and you'd say
That this was real and I'd see
That you're there and you care
And you won't stray
That you're here and you're near
And I don't pay
Consequences, defenses
You're building fences
When did love become a thing
Where we disect expenses
Don't your remember the care in my eyes
I still feel your hand creeping down my thighs
But my intentions never matter
Not when anger arrives

Love Poem.2

My sensitivity
Blood in the water
Your teethy insecurities
We both grow smaller
I want to scream
From your mouth
So it's louder
I gave you my eyes
And you closed yours tighter
Please, tell me the truth
But know I'm a fighter
So many feelings
And such a big divider


When I said I loved you
I meant every word
But in this world
Lines get blurred
When you whisper your heart
Silence is heard
I reason with myself
But I'm sounding absurd
