Storm Cloud

A distinct disconnect between the lightening and the cloud

Thunder echoes through the dark hills

Static stings in the air

A night so hot and humid

Stars hide behind a gray blanket

Pretending they don’t exist

The only thing that seems real to me

Is the fantasy of love’s kiss


No More Moon

When a writer deems no words worth writing

When a singer finds no tunes to sing

When an astronaut can’t find the moon

I’ll still be here for you 




What Never Once Was

IMG_1532You never said you love me

You never said you’ll stay

You never promised me tomorrow

Or begged for yesterday

You’ve never brought me sorrow

I’ve never cared anyway

We never held hands

And we never touched lips

We never grazed fingertips

We never thought of our future

We never dreamt of one

I never wanted kids, you might have wanted some

I told you not to stay

And you were ok with walking away

I held the door for you as we said goodbye

Neither one of us sad, nor with tears in our eyes


Dream a little wish

With a little pixie dust and some happy thoughts, we can fly together

To a magical place where we can stay young forever

We will tease Captain Hook with the ticking of clocks

Giggle because it’s no longer us that it mocks

Sail in a ship through the starry night sky

Watch as the clouds float idly by

Run through the forest with the Lost Boys

Playing all day, never being told we make too much noise

Oh, runaway with me to Neverland

All you have to do is take my hand
