Part Time

I picked you
You’re cute
Funny
But not adequate
This makes you perfect

Even in my times of weakness
When I’m ready to settle
You still aren’t enough
I can’t afford to make a mistake
Every move is calculated

Don’t you see
I know what I’m doing
I picked you
Because..

..you aren’t good enough.

Brighter days
Dark nights
Dreams of you
I wake with thoughts of pain

Shake it off
I don’t want to see you
I wish I never knew you
Those hard lessons, repeated
I’m a glutton

One day I’ll learn
Maybe karma will do me a favor
Send me a sweet one.

Scared of Heights

Posted on

and so it ends
here in the mountains I will leave you
and go back home to me
my tears will be left here
in this distance I have found
a peace with what we had
I shed you with those tears
and the heartache you left me with
it was I that chose to leave
to spare the worst for us both

I’m not new
I am still most certainly bruised
but I am not grieving anymore
I lost myself in that pain and had to drive 700 miles to find me again
it wasn’t Texas, it was you
the burden of what should’ve been

all that I shared with you
how it felt like you really knew me
and..that you knew how to hurt me

I’ll leave you here
…at the foot of Pike’s Peak and drive away.

Cut Down

No comprehension of that compulsion
No humanity in that human
No shame for the shameless..only condemnation
Activating, igniting that knee jerk reaction
That reaction that begets violence

The thirst for blood, vengeance
I believe that same fever becomes ignited in our outrage
In reaction to the atrocity
We ask for swift justice
and condemn him to Hell

This makes us better?
