on your mind

i can see the flowers bloom,

just like the way she looks at you,

and when she's gone the words you say,

are on her mind.


love her till the oceans dry,

kiss her cheek and never lie.

your lungs are empty under your skin.

remember how you pulled her in


your shaky breath has gone away,

with ghosts that show up every day.

and in the night you rest your head,

you'd never learned, you've never said,


you're the only one that she can see.

the planets line up perfectly.

broken mirror and cigarettes,

the beauty in the words she left


are on your mind

She left the words,Upon his

She left the words,

Upon his ears,

In the darkest of night,

They then appear,

He cursed the salt that stung the wound,

'Twas fear that left hIm out of tune,

And when the morning light sets in,

His searching soul has peace within,

The salt now settles, his rath composed,

He sees the words she left, as a rose.


.....liked it!!

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
