Missing Him

You continue to fight the system,
I know that you miss him,
I don't know why,
You refuse to let go,

Of the dream that faded away,
You continue to cause pain,
When it can go away,
No matter how hard,
You scream at the sky,
He ain't ever comming back,
He died for his cause,
What he believed,
Just because you won't agree,
Won't cause him to be beamed back,
From the past battles he fought,
And the one he did return,
But in a box and uniform,
To his last place,
Where he shall forever stand guard,
Oneday he will stand guard next to you,

Don't Go Loving Me

Folder: 
2017

I remember

seeing those signs

Dropping them at your door

I remember sitting here

wanting nothing

I remember wanting more

 

And she said

Don't go chasing those sunsets

Don't go thinking you're free

Don't go thinking your hand is tied to mine

Don't go loving me

 

I've been told

my mouth is too dry

I don't have the words to explode

I've been told I'm a world

I'm a desert

I don't know how to follow this road

 

And she said

Don't go chasing those sunsets

Don't go thinking you're free

Don't go thinking your hand is tied to mine

Don't go loving me

 

I leave here

with an ache, with a smile

I'll return for this close and this need

I leave here wanting more,

wanting something

I leave here and I don't care if I bleed

 

And she said

Don't go chasing those sunsets

Don't go thinking you're free

Don't go thinking your hand is tied to mine

Don't go loving me

A sonnet for Shannon

a sonnet for Shannon 
 
You first captured my gaze.
Intriguing, curiosity what I would give?
What I was waiting for with one life to live?
A quick glance to one another, my soul wherein?
My heart follows my gaze herein,
A single second to relive?
Do my feelings misgive?
Your heart I want to win?
No! Break the gaze and question no more.
Free yourself and continue on.
I can't let my guard down again.
My heart I wish for you to restore.
Even though my gaze I have withdrawn.
My love for you will still remain.
Author's Notes/Comments: 

how I met Shannon and what I felt at the time. Confused, shy, curious, engrossed, but careful. She had an air of mystery to her when I first caught a glance of those grey eyes. I wanted to know more about her.
