Anything is possible…

Their connection was unique
Formed from remnants of dismantled dreams
And wiry bits of tattered truths
It was the kind of connection
Which everyone assumed would never last
Even time seemed to consider it a lost cause
But somehow between the layers
Of their oddly structured foundation
An unbelievable bond was formed
Secretly this tie grew stronger
Day by day and year by year
And without fail they proved the impossible was possible

Sometimes I feel like I’m walking on mars…

Sometimes I feel like
I’m walking on mars,
out here under
a million stars.

Life as I once knew it
just doesn’t exist;
the air is similar
still, my questions persist.

Infinite considerations
light up the midnight sky,
wonders aplenty
yet not a single answer why.

The intrigue alone
steals my breath away;
if only I could harness the stars
I might find my way.

In-between the gloom

Heavy hearts
and ruined days
Sunlight sparkles
shadowed by haze
And yet in-between
is a glimmer of gold
A future so bright
the perfect secret untold
Layers of pristine petals
align in an exquisite array
Carpeting our path
showing us the way
Guiding our footsteps
providing us with hope
A gentle reminder
helping us to cope

Movin on…

Sometimes
there are times,
I wish I could
go back.

I’d fix
all the places
where things
went right off track.

But then
I remember,
you can’t fix
what’s not been learned.

So instead,
I just keep livin,
knowin the past
has been adjourned.
