Day: January 3, 2015

(watching you)

drinking on the shore

watching you in the ocean

oh, these winter nights

Repair Or Replace

Arms full of memories

Too many to count

Careful to not grip them too hard

Less they damage

Falling to the floor in shattered pieces

Splintered fragments you can’t ever repair

Nor replace

She worried about all of their stares

I don’t pay too much attention

Head down, and straight into the wind

She wishes to be more like me

Like me, with respect of not caring

She sees everything as hopeless

She is a free fall

A whirlwind, a disaster waiting to strike

But all the good one’s have already been claimed

No second chances

So I stay with her

Comfort, to some degree, on this knife-edge

Walking this line, tempting all fate

Call me an optimist

The straight-on wind walker

Who won’t have the good one’s

Because they’ve all been taken
