Recycled bones

Recycle your bones
So they won’t break
Recycle your bones

So they can’t get to your heart

This time
The water speaks to me

With words so elegant 

I can’t describe 

I can’t explain
Help me assess the situation

We were so far

We’ve made it so far
I don’t want to lose this growth

For everything I once owned
I don’t want to lose this growth

Because you stole the whole damn thing

I can still feel it beating
I can make it

Just one more hill to climb

Just one more beautiful waterfall to find
Just one more time
With my recycled bones


Time Travelers 

Shame It knows our names
It knows our dreams

Our aspirations 

It shines light on the body count 

Of our hearts

Making a mausoleum right behind our very own closet door 

I travel through time

Back to the past

When I first saw your eyes

To moment I had with you last

I dream of those moments

Like a graphic novel

Wishing so badly the end would change

I wish it would change

It will always be that summer in my heart

In my dreams


Shade my eyes
Because I don’t want to see

I want to believe
There’s line between

A cloud above

And ground below

To show who and where you ought to be

As well as who and where you are today 
I’ll never speak of it again

If you swear you meant it

I’ll never dream it

If you’d just let me down for good
Cut the ties 

And throw out the lies

So we can breathe without machines

So we can see with our own eyes

Our own perspective 

Our own lives
