Maybe Someday

There’s a pile of clothes lying down on my floor and all I can dream is that they’re yours   That I could pick them up and breathe in your scent and tilt my face up to your smile…   That I could melt all the distance the miles between us two Sometimes we laugh […]


Finding another way to wish upon a star again hold another moment flush within my arms   Facing another day Sitting down to watch What little time we have slip by…   Wandering astray Hoping to find you Lost somewhere waiting for me to catch you and bring you home.

Second-Hand Faith

She gives me her faded fantasies and second-hand faith Not full at all   We can never be this close again No matter how hard we try more hope more wishes more lies but no more sad, sick goodbyes…   and not another sharp corner not another surprise I won’t let it happen again Not […]


Yes, I’ll stay Play pretend for one more day Live the dream another way and nothing left to say …nothing left to say   I can try to stay Play pretend for another day Drenched in this passionate calm Calmly passionate place Please don’t let me escape… I won’t try to get away again.   […]

Empty orbs of glass See right through me Pursed ruby lips painted blood Lust Hunger for something more Unattainable Cold, lifeless Broken façade on the floor.


Biting wishes into apples A time of balance has arrived Drinking cakes and ale beneath a gently darkening cloud-laced sky…   It is the equinox of the autumn The harmonious Sabbat of Mabon While with friends or in solitude Nights to come will seem so beautifully long.

Yes, Please…

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.” —W. B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire

Forgotten Memories

You whisper still forgotten memories lost in time   Silent promises never spoken   Impossible wishes Lost amidst the stars   …I wish you wouldn’t whisper anything at all Because it makes me forget Where I really am and how I got here and how I can’t go back and all those things I can’t […]

Birthday Wishes

Turn back the clock To when I was a child And slower now, I’ll sink right in and there I’ll stay and hide…   Take me down that road and pull me in all too deep Rock me in the crooked cradle And sing me to sleep…   Oh, sing me lullabies From times long […]
