Speechless

sometimes words fall short
as feelings grow tall
and you’re left feeling
unable to speak


sometimes the thoughts
that rumble and ramble within
are incapable of
joining the english language


sometimes when I look at you
from the corner of my eye
there’s a thud in my chest
and it echoes through my toes


sometimes there are no words
to define the indefinable
express the inexpressible
describe the indescribable


sometimes three short words
eight tiny letters
are enough
when coupled by you

Fading Quickly

seasons stand still
trees bare and confused
air crisp, yet damp
waiting on you.

good winter
bad winter
nonexistent summer...
time rushes by.

waiting for tomorrow
or next year
or trying to forget
won't affect the now.

step outside.
close your eyes.
breathe deep.
and imagine it all gone.

Simplicity

From the first smile
the muscles have tightened
and the expressions have deepened
but effort has lessened


From the first message
the signs were clear
the emotions were bold
and the feelings were there


From the first sound
of your voice
and sight
of your face


the words vanished
the music played
the laughter resonated
and the smiles grew


From the first smile
pearls were gleaming
hearts were beating
and comfort echoed through
