Can’t Compare

What I have here with you,

Can’t be compared,

To anything I’ve dealt with before.

Illusion has been swept away.

Bringing me finally,

To this day.

I see now the difference,

From the infatuation,

The passionate lust,

And what is real.

I used to feel an overwhelming desire,

To let my feelings be known.

A fear secretly grasping at my joy.

Reminding me that this wouldn’t last.

That I would eventually lose this company.

Words would spill over the edge,

Petal to the metal of the relationship.

Every overture available used.

Just to express the passionate feeling.

Lust and fear mistaken as love.

That much more tender,

With the walls and gates lowered.

Only in an effort to feel.

In effort to find the only piece missing.

Now I see and feel much clearer.

The others playing as teachers for my heart.

Showing me to recognize the truth of your company.

Old fears are easily dismissed.

The true feeling is finally here.

Brought to the forefront.

It’s easily seen by your simple actions.

The words sit on the corner of my lips.

I feel the phrase pass between us when we kiss.

These words unspoken,

Can’t be compared

To those spoken so freely by others.

I know I will hear them,

When the time is right.

I know when I do,

The meaning will hold more weight,

Than when they have ever been said before.

You couldn’t ever be compared

To anyone before.

They were never the one,

I was waiting for. 



She prays

At the beginning

Of each day

Words flowing

Rising with the sun

Hope building


That kind of love


The kind

You dream about


No doubt


Only for now

She prays


For the moment


By the dream


In the end

She still prays

Here at night

Each word

Hitching a ride

Among the stars


Through the sky



She prays

Only You

Only you have the ability

To effect me this way

To bring me the sun

Even on a stormy day

To clear the clouds

Shine the stars

To light a full moon

On a quiet night

Only you

Have the ability

To be my gravitational force

To send my world spinning

And stop it

With just a look

Only you

Send me flying

Free among the trees

And keep me grounded


Just by sitting

Right next to me

Only you

Have the ability

To manipulate the laws of time

To make our moments alone

Turn into hours

Then our hours apart

Turn into mere seconds

Only you

Have had the ability

To touch my walls

Those defenses

Locked ever so tight

Guarded by hurt

Scars, Fears

And make all of it

Just disappear

Only with you

Am I so full of words

Bountiful with emotions

Hopes and dreams

Yet, I am at a loss

For the phrase

The song

The description

To describe any of it

Only you


Have these abilities

Which Way – Fate – Split Paths

Path moving

Changing constantly

Faced with choices

Which road to take?


Do you stick

With comfortable?

What you already know…


Do you face your fears

Of the unknown

And take the road

Less traveled

Taking a chance

On happiness

Or becoming



The choice

The path

Is always yours to make


You are

The master

Of your own fate

Sun and Rain

I always thought

I was a hopeless romantic

Dreaming, Hoping

For what never came


I always thought

I was just a little

Idealistic, Positive

For what I didn’t have


Then my eyes

Were opened

To what stood

This whole time

Right in front of me


I feel for you

Deeper than words

Can ever express


No word

No song

Ever seems

To capture it

Just right


With just your thought

A smile plays

Just seeing your name

Always makes my day


Not speaking

Even briefly

Seems to bring

My day to an overcast


With others

I didn’t care so much

With you

It brings sun and rain

Forever To Start


Invading my private world


Thoughts of you occur


Slipping past my defenses


Engaging hidden senses




Everything has started


In a merry go round effect


To continue to bring


It all back to you




All starting with a friendly fondness


Simply finding comfort


In pure conversation




Your constant energy


In the background of my life


I have discovered


Means more than anything






In my personal reality


I feel a shift


Between you and me




Moving along a path


I thought I would never have


A connection so refreshingly deep


So whole


That even so far apart


A simple hello


Makes me feel complete




As always


What made no sense before


Is now clear as mud


When my hopes


My dreams


I surrendered




I found the answer


Had always been


Right in front of me




With this rightness


Touching my soul


Healing a wounded heart


With you


I want forever to start
