Thank You

Thank you
for being there -
for listening -
for being everything I needed
and more.

For being you
I couldn't be more thankful
because you were there
when they weren't
when no one else was.
You - you were always there
for me.

For no reason
you stood by my
side
And listened to me
go on and on
when you didn't have to.
You listened
and lent me a shoulder
and extended your hand
to pull me back onto my
feet.

It's because of you
- because of YOU -
that I can smile
and say:
Thank you.

All About The Fight

Fight for what you love.
Fight for what deserves
to be fought for -
before it's broken.
And crumbled.
And walks away
forever.


Fight for what deserves
to be fought for.
Or regret it -
forever.

Love Cannot Compare

The melody rolls from my finger tips


The harmony ripples from my lips
          to the butterflies in my stomach
          to the chills down my spine
          to the waves of sound across my tongue
          to the passion in the clench of my fist


Four parts for three words
because music
speaks the words
that
love cannot.

Words Hurt Too

I can't trust
Because of you
Because of how you left things
Because of how you broke them
-- the promises?
The ones you made
And said you'd never break.

You broke me.
And crushed me with your words.
Because you didn't care enough
To do it with your bare hands.

Just Let Things Fall

I want to get away
from it all
for awhile

Just shut the door
close the curtains
let the music fall

I want to walk out the door
and know where I’m going.
A place where I’d feel
safe
and not alone

it doesn’t exist.

I want to get away
from it all --
but I can’t
because I can’t let it
go.
