Maybe She'll Love You


maybe she'll love you
how i should have
how i could have
how i would have
had you allowed me to
you made me feel small
while you walked tall
and didn't care at all
they say
pride comes before a fall
they say
it happens all the time
they say
there's a thin line
between happiness and misery
they say
there's a fine line
between delusion and reality
perhaps it's your destiny
another opportunity
another chance
another romance
maybe she'll love you
if you'll allow her to

Lullaby


the lay
of the wind
on a sparrow's
wing
as it flies
to it's nest

the glee
of the sun
on the boughs
of a tree
as it sinks
in the west

the madrigal
of a lucent moon
as it rises
in the sky

a medley
of melodies
the lilt of
a lullaby

Dreams


dreams
shredded fragments
pale as the moon
flutter like
flimsy apparitions
to be snarled
and snared
in the shadows
of nightmares
futile fantasies
tangled in
complex
mind games
waning
wilting
withering
beneath
the veil
of delusion

Rebirth


nature's crystal womb
the chastity of winter
a time for rebirth

Pareidolia


counting sheep
until the cock crows
sunny day
