Having Been Happy.



Hving been happy in touching metallic skies

Or fingering the moon for its dusty overlay

Having been happy in moving orbs and the shores

Or spreading the sunshine to the burrowed moles.


Watching a lonely planet amid reluctant universe

Communications with eyelids in retinues of mankind

Having been happy in sweeping the volcanic dust

From a cold planet cast under the Brahma’s curse.


Having been happy in holding that repose

Which contained hidden geometry of the universe

Having been happy in consoling the suppressed cries

Of the shoring waves under the moonlit skies.

Best Friends Are Like Stars

Best friends are like stars on a cloudy night
you may not see them but you know they are always there
through thick or thin their  friendship will always shine bright

You both can share the times of laughter and the times of sorrow
and those little secrets shared are safe and kept forever
there’s never a doubt each of you will be there come tomorrow

Even if life’s path changes along the way and one  moves away
distance and time can  never change the bond between best friends
that truly special friendship in each others heart is there to stay

Forever it does remind me,
Of an unquenchable thirst,
As I can't drink yet can drown,
And must I, before I burst?

The wind howls red




Fingers frozen, jacket tight, the merlot leaves taking flight

Foot steps long ,quick in pace, better hurry home, you are not alone

The wind howls red, the chill runs deep, you should be in bed, to Grandmas keep

The bramble cottage comes in sight, everyones sleeping, there is no light

You skip closer, just a little more, oblivious to the danger lurking beyond the door.


Secret sort of Feelin'


I miss that dirty, lifted pick-up truck

Riding shotgun with my feet out the window

Singing to the songs on the radio. 

And lookin' at you but you didn't know.


How i was looking at you.

I remember one time when i thought you saw me,

how i see you

But i guess it just wasn't meant to be.


I didn't take a chance when i thought that i had one,

I was embarrassed and scared,

Now it's too late, i've already run.

And you found a girl who dared.


She stepped up to the plate that i didn't.

All I could think was "you're too young for me."

And what people would think was my intent.

And how there'd be complications with your family.


Watching you with her,

I'm wishing i'd have said something.

Hoping that you're happy,

But also that it's just a fling.


That maybe there's still a chance for me,

And that things aren't what they seem to be,

But I waited too long,

so it's a wait and see.


I miss that dirty, old, lift-kit pick-up truck

Feet out the window ridin' shotgun.

Glancing at you and thinking is...

Making my mind come undone.


-Secretly Waiting

Love Sick Stupor

So sad, to say goodbye;

So sweet, so sweet;

Only in pain, do we meet;

Like a love sick puppy;

Stupor, stupor;




Love sick stupor;

Tomorrow already;

Full of energy;

Got a world to beat;

Only in pain do we meet;

My sweet.

Family Portraits Only Capture Lies.


Lately Mom's been drinking

while laid up in her bed.

And dad looks overwhelmed

Like this is all over his head.

My brother keeps on stealing

and the little one is starting to follow.

Am I the only sane one?

With the chance of reaching tomorrow.


Sometimes I want to abandon them,

even though I know thats wrong.

But I can't keep dealing with this,

Its already been too long.

It doesn't even seem like we love each other

More like a resentful toleration.

And now I'm dipping into Momma's liqour supply

but only in moderation.


We used to seem pretty happy and normal

as we posed for a family photo.

Taken back before we started hitting rock bottom

that's back where I want to go.

Now Daddy's talking about he's leaving

and momma doesn't seem to care.

I wish I knew were he was going and so does he,

he'll figure it out when he gets there.


Sometimes I feel as though I can't hold them together

as if they're slipping between my fingertips.

Not caring that they are making us all cry

and ignoring the pleas from my lips.

Sometimes I wish I was so much stronger

So I could force them to stay.

But even I'm starting to realize that

This isn't where they want to be at the end of the day.


They're always fight about money

Constantly saying that we never have enough.

But even then family should stick together

When the road and life get tough.

People are always complimenting how we look happy

in pictures, imagine my surprise.

But I guess that they don't know

That Family Portraits Only Capture Lies.

Tonight's the Em night

G Got nowhere to D go 

C Gonna do it Em right 

G Like Usher take it nice and D slow


C They were drowning in a sea of Em lust

G Barely made it to the D surface 

C Swept up like a pile of Em dust 

G As if they had no D purpose 


G Skin on Cadd9 skin  

G A tender touch D A gentle caress 

G Livin' in Em sin

Cadd9 No longer feel the Em emptiness 

G A pleasurable warmth spread from their Cadd9 head to their toes

Em The only barrier between them now Cadd9 being their clothes

G No rules tonight D just go with the flow 

Em As we get swept up in the Cadd9 undertow


C When their bodies touched they finally Em connected 

G They lose themselves in a D tender loving kiss 

C They took pleasure in things Em unexpected 

G As they float on a cloud of D ecstasy and bliss


C Can feel a buildup of Em desire 

G Who knew life could be so D sweet 

C As you start to Em perspire 

G I can feel your body D heat


G Skin on Cadd9 skin  

G A tender touch D A gentle caress 

G Livin' in Em sin

Cadd9 No longer feel the Em emptiness 

G A broken gift you can't return Cadd9 don't know what to do well baby you'll learn

Em Are you ready for this well only if you're sure Cadd9 just make sure you're love is pure

G No rules tonight D just go with the flow 

Em As we get swept up in the Cadd9 undertow

The Phone Call That Killed My Brother

Right before his car crashed in to the old oak tree,



I saw him scream, I saw him cry, I saw him turn inside out.



I know my twin brother better than the girls he tricks to his treats,



Girls that leave him with scratch marks on his back like a cat to post.



He was there when I was born, I was there when he learned to kiss,



He was there when I played my first recital, I was there at his death.



I'm always with him, I don't have to know where he is, or even see him.



Look through a forest and you know the birds are singing, but not seen.



So as I stared at him through the eye piece of shared DNA prior death,



He answered a call from our mother with troubling news about me.



His twin brother, myself, had just come out of the closet, and it was all



His fault, the fighting, the name calling, the harassing, the banter;



At least that is what was going through his mind. I wouldn't know.



I only felt his pain through the love of two brothers, two, but one.
