You set up a twisted game.
How will I know the rules,
when you keep changing them?
I’ve been sucked into a black hole.
No way out.
I bang against the glass door.
You look straight through the door,
but also straight through me.
No way out.
I need help.
My throat feels raw from screaming your name.
You left and will never return.
How do I know this?
It’s the game we play,
over and over.
No way out.
Trapped in this madness.
He loved her more than she’ll ever begin to understand
She’s got grace in her heart that makes mountains fall for her
Her smile brightens his day far more than the sun or a million Christmas lights
Hearing her talk about her day fills him with more gratitude than if he won the lottery
She adds to his life better than puzzle pieces to each other
He loves when she think she’s alone and starts hearing her soft voice sing melodies to the air
He’ll never be able to tell her how much he loves her because how can you begin to explain love
Love runs deeper than just saying those three words
Love is a noun and a verb, how do you begin to express the feeling in your heart and also the feeling in your lungs
He loves her more than she’ll ever know
She loves him too, in different ways but the love they share beats any forth of July firework display
Fresh Autumn air wades in,
plaid blankets, scarves and flannels come out,
knitted sweaters bundle our bodies.
Time becomes more precious,
leaves turn golden before burning out,
the crisp crackle of fire fills the night life
and hands get warm with hot mugs of cocoa.
Sweet and spicy scents mingle in the air,
pumpkin and apple desserts on kitchen tables,
outside has cooled down while inside becomes warm.
She said “thank you”
He said “you’re welcome”
Neither of them said what for
It could have been for anything
But they both knew it was for everything
It could be only the two of us
Stuck on a mountain peak
Or lost in the woods
No matter where life takes us
As long as I’ve got you to hold onto
I have no fear of where the road leads
You have a grip on me
Full confidence that you’ll keep me safe
When you step forward
I step forward
You and me
Let’s take on this world
There’s nothing quite like driving into the middle of nowhere
Looking up at night’s sky and seeing billions of stars
Nothing but stars
Even the rough painting of the milky way
My body was frozen in time as my eyes were glued to looking up
Didn’t matter we were alone in the dark
Didn’t matter our cell service was weak
Some instances in life can’t be told in second person
It was you and me and a billion stars
And my heart was satisfied to the top
It’s been a carousel of lost dreams
Around and around we spun
I was hoping maybe today would be different
Putting a quarter in the machine
Letting the world spin by as time felt limitless
Peppy music taking over my ears
Thoughts of reality faded as the horse rode
Up and down and around
Feeling young and like the world can’t hurt me
My eyes closed, the vision is crystal clear
Until it came to a crashing halt
Music cuts off
Horses frozen in place
The ground stilled
Real life resumed
And the fun moment…over
For another quarter, you could go again
It never lasts forever
Though, I’ll never stop dreaming of the day
When the carnival ride comes to life
Or for you to apologize
