LOST WALLFLOWER


LOST WALLFLOWER

DAYS GO BY

LIKE THE BREEZES

IN THE HILLS

AS THE WHEEL

CONTINUES TURNING

IT ALL STOPS

WITHOUT THE AXLE

THAT KEEPS IT GOING

STANDING IN THE

SHOWER LETTING

THE COLD WATER

WASH AWAY

THE DAYS GRIME

AND DIRT

FROM WALKING

IN THE SUMMER HEAT

THE INNER

FRUSTRATIONS

OF IN AND OUT

OUT OF RANGE

CONVERSATIONS

THIS TREE HAS BEEN

WAVERING

AND WONDERING

LOOKING FOR

A PLACE

TO SET ITS ROOTS

FOR FAR TOO LONG

NOW

SEEMS IT NEEDS

MORE WATER

THAN SOIL

OH FROM MY

MEH MOOD

TO MY ACHE

IN THE FADING ECHOES

STARING AT

THE PAGES

BEFORE ME

WITH OUT

ANY CHANGES

I GO LOOK

ALL THE TIME

AND IT JUST BREAKS

MY HEART

IN THE

EMPTYINESS

THERE

MISSING EVEN

WHILE SOMEONE

IS AROUND

ITS STILL SO QUIET

AS I SEEM TO BE

TRAPPED IN A MOMENT

THATS LONG GONE

AND I WAS

THE LAST ONE

TO REALIZE IT

OH MY HART IS

STILL REALLY ACHING

TO THE POINT

IT FLIPFLOPS

WITH ALL MY DESIRE

LOST ON THE WIND

STILL IT CARRIES

ME THROUGH

TO SOME SPACE

OF WHERE I GUESS

I WILL ETERNALLY

WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN

SOME DAYS MY STRENGTH

IS SO ZAPPED AWAY

I GET SO TIRED

SO I CALM MY HEART

SAYING DON'T FRET

DEAR OH DEAR

WHERE HAS MY EFFORTS

ALL GONE

OUR EFFORTS...

OUR MOMENTS...

STANDING STILL

IN THIS GROUNDED SPOT

IS A GIFT

EVEN NOTICED

WHEN SHARED ANYMORE

OR WAS IT LOST

IN THE MILLIONS

OF OTHERS GIVEN

SHOULD I EVEN TRY

OR WILL IT JUST

BRING MORE

CHAOS AND HACKS

TO DESTROY

WHAT

LITTLE I HAVE LEFT

IS MY VOICE

EVEN HEARD

IS IT THAT SMALL

IN THE SPACES

IN BETWEEN

STILL KNOW

I LET THE MUSIC

FLOW

HOLDING ON

TO

SOME KIND

OF STRANGE PAIN

TO A LOST

FRIEND THAT

CHANGED MY LIFE

FROM GLOOM

AND DOOM

TO IMAGINATION

AND

CREATIVITY

AGAIN

TO NOT JUST

EXIST

BUT ACTUALLY

LIVE AGAIN

OH YES WHETHER

THEY KNOW

IT OR NOT

I HAVE TOTALLY

MISSED YOU

FROM THE

MOMENT IT WAS

GONE

TO THE DEPTHS

OF

MY CULTIVATING

BLEEDING

HEART

THAT STILL BEATS

IN THE DRUMS

AND RHYTHMS

OF SOME

KIND OF

MIRACLE

THAT I AM

HERE

HAS IT ALL

BEEN IN VAIN

TO ATTEMPT

TO RE CONNECT

TO A FRIEND

I HELD SO DEAR

DO WE

BOTH FEEL THE SAME

IN THAT

AT LEAST

OH TO

FIND SOME

KIND OF

HAPPINESS

WHILE

I AM STILL

LIVING

TO ENJOY IT

OH TO THAT

SACRED WOOD

THAT KEEPS

ME GOING

FOR I AM

SO TIRED
