Lost love

Last Call

She called me, long distance;

her voice sounding more distant

than ever before.

I could hear the word


in every sentence,

even though she

never said it.

Her voice sounded as melodic

as ever, but it rang with

melancholy minor chords

in a measured diminuendo.

A requiem for

our long distance love.

Her work would take her

to Rome in a few days.

A nice apartment

near Piazza Navona.

How wonderful, I said.

After a few random pieces

of small talk, she said

she would see me soon.

I knew she was really saying

Goodbye - 

even though she never

used the word.

But I did.

I whispered it


as the line went dead.

Entropic Thoughts of You

I whispered our secrets to the north wind,

Little knowing they would reach other ears.

I dreamed we had an everlasting love,

But those dreams turned out to be illusions.

Opposites attract, but some opposites

Are too polar to accomodate change.

Sad truth: regret and loneliness endure,

Though our lives drifted apart long ago.

Like an achingly sad song, our lost love

Remains on constant replay in my head.

A full moon lies cradled in the treetops,

And you sit here in the back of my mind.

Forgive and Forget

Torn Love

You murdered my heart,

Broke the trust I had with you,

Do you really care?

Could you love me to death?

Im empty inside,

Watch me as I walk away,

The emptiness inside of me,

Can I learn to forgive and forget?

A Lost Star

Torn Love

All I ever wanted was to talk to you,

Make you laugh and smile,

I never thought I would feel this way,

Your smile is brighter than the sun,

Your hugs are warm and comforting,

Your body temperature is like magma,

I longed to make you happy,

Promised each other we would always be there,

Something stirred deep inside,

Like waking a long sleeping dragon,

Feelings started to surface,

I wouldnt let you go,

I couldnt let you go,

You felt like the night sky,

Held my heart when it was breaking,

I tried to hold yours,

Keep you happy,

You helped me heal when times were hard,

I trusted you implicitly,

I gave you all I had,

Just to make you smile,

Just to make you happy,

Just to be your friend,

Im sorry that I wasnt good enough,

Im sorry that I cared,

I hate what has become of us,

The rift in between,

I feel as far away form you as Pluto,

At the furthest orbital point,

You took my heart and broke it,

You did the one thing I asked you not to,

You burnt bridges we had built,

You destroyed my happiness,

Hurt me in ways I never thought possible,

I want to forgive you,

Because I care,

Im just not sure I can,

I let you in,

Deep inside me,

I miss your touch,

I miss the sparkle in your eyes,

I miss your smile,

I miss you,

I feel like a dying star,

Energy that has been expended too quickly,

Rapidly cooling and diminishing,

Solidifying from the outside in,

Fading from something bright,

Becoming part of the darkness,

A solid lump of nothingness.


Te Amo in Aeternum,

Because I have no choice,

Because I cant help it,

Because Im human and I hurt.

A Fallen Star

Torn Love

I only wish you know,

How much I loved you,

Right from the beginning,

The impact you made when you landed,

From high above,

You fell so far,

Never losing your shine,

The first time I laid eyes on you,

The darkness staring back at me,

We danced and danced,

Orbited each other,

Complementary and clashing,

A comet passed by,

Obscuring the vision,

Leaving a trail of dust and debris,

You fell to earth,

I held you in my arms,

Breathed life into your fading embers,

I gave you my trust,

I thought I had yours,

You exploded in my hands,

Tore me to shreds,

Ripped my heart out,

Left me bleeding and alone,

If you only knew,

How much I had loved you.


Long lost


I know we arent together, and you're no longer mine

but that doesnt change how I feel, you're always on my mind.

When I think about you, I am filled with such love

God brought you in my life, inspired from above.

The Thought of you, brings a smile to my face

and I never want you sad, and you look good wearing lace.

you make me feel; there's nothing I cant do

when we are together, I'd do anything for you!

Its hard to describe; all the feelings I feel

all I am sure of, is that these feelings are real.

when you kiss me, I experience a rush and a high

I cant explain it, so I won't even try...

all I am certain, about you and me...

is we belong together, and one day you too will see. 

I need you in more ways, then you can guess

but you need me more, not any less!

I'm not sure why, you dont want love in your life

but If I had my way... I'd take you as my wife.

you are the one thing; that makes me feel whole

You are the best thing in my life... I need you to know

One of these days, maybe you'll feel the same way

and you'll find any excuse to contact me each day

Guide Me

Guide Me

By Jfarrell


I was lost

Without direction

Without objective

Without destination


I was nowhere

In the land of fools

Being led by the blind

Forever falling


From when I woke

To falling exhausted into bed

I was lost

And going nowhere



With the siren of the Siren

You called to me

And gave me a way


Your sweet voice

Whispers in my ear

Leading me over mountains

Guiding me through the deepest chasms


I am coming

As fast as I can

Call to me, guide me

Give me the wings and I will fly to you


My most wondrous Siren

"Naio I Know"

DaddyO's BDSM

by DaddyO


She'd text her grandpa, instead of "so long",
"Chow" unaware she was spelling it wrong

I suppose right then I should've known
A girl like her needs to be on her own

But I persisted because in us I believed
I suppose a wide-eyed girl makes a man naive

She said "love you" everytime we spoke
Like a broken record that I didn't think broke

The last thing she'd say to me on the phone
And when she would I didn't feel so alone

She'd say "love you" on our way to work
"I love you too", I'd say with a smirk

She said it again on her trip back East
And inside I felt an inner peace

I was so glad when she came back early
But my joy manifested prematurely

"Let's clear our minds of this excess
Organize and purge our clutter and mess"

She said "a storage unit for my extra stuff?"
I never questioned what wasn't enough

I chuckled "this won't all fit in my backseat,
Unless the storage unit is a penthouse suite"!

She said "love you" and packed more clothes
I was blissfully unaware of her plan to go

She said it again in our final embrace
Then said "goodbye" as a slap in the face

I wasn't prepared to not see her again
I suppose my life ends where hers begins

When words are spoken without any shame
"Love you" and "goodbye" all sound the same

The only thing I have left now
Is knowing she didn't text me back "caio!"

You felt guilty in your innocence
Now you feel justified doing wrong
I'm overcome by our dissidence
As I compose this fatal song
There's an insidious assumption
Being whispered 'round the town
That you've consumed all our consumption
And you're no where to be found
That you're happy without having me
Content all by yourself
Well I've survived now you backstabbing me
And cleared off all our shelves
And underneath the cluttered mess
Beyond the torn down wall of trust
Lies debris destined for loneliness
That I'd rather just call "us"
