Sentence Poems

1 She was always so cool.  Even as she walked away it appeared she danced.
 
2 Even the memories I have of us in total daylight are tea stained with darkness.
 
3 She is the period at the end of the sentence “I’ve found the one.” And the open space at the end of the phrase “We will spend our lives…”
 
4 You come back once and a while to speak of before – like the gentle and intricate dance the waves do for the shore.
 
5 You said that each of our soul mates speak to different part of our souls. I couldn't figure out what part of my soul you spoke to because instead of speaking your soul sang and all of mine listened.
 
6 Visions began to pool in that area of the brain that you can only visit when you’re held in the security of a lover or the dark.
 
7 I found god and she’s a woman.
 
8 The goal should not be to become a better version of ourselves but to become a healthier version of ourselves.  Too often, people are wrapped up in becoming something beautifully diseased.
 
9 Finding your soulmate is a lifelong sentence to spiritual hand holding.
 
10 And in that you’re the sun and I’m the horizon – as you set you come to me and whisper “Meet me here tomorrow” so I wait and I wait
And you always come back
But you never stay

Elevation Lyrics 2016

I - Elevation

Dark and fragile secrets hold the space between our breath though breathing is quite difficult out here
Let's taste the silence - make it last - you are the spell I wish to cast, the magic in the atmosphere

And just before I shiver my way home - I'll let the moonlight clean my cluttered soul...

Bright and dying star, we're not so far apart.
And, though, I'll drown in isolation - I'll swim the open air
The comfort of the darkness is the only place we share
Rely on elevation you know I'll die before I'm there

I wish, I wish upon you now that I'll learn to live without doubt and conquer all the things to break my gaze
I wish, I wish upon you star that one day I'll be where you are to see how small we look from outer space

And just before I shiver my way home - I'll let the moonlight clean my cluttered soul...

Bright and dying star, we're not so far apart.
And, though, I'll drown in isolation - I'll swim the open air
The comfort of the darkness is the only place we share
Rely on elevation you know I'll die before I'm there

II - Caffeine 

She is falling but not to sleep
See her laying with her words soaked in caffeine
She is dreaming actively
She her racing through the visions that she dreams

Eyes are closed, hair is down, no one knows why she's around
Behind those lids, she's chased by monster memories, behind those lids, she's doing time in the sheets

But she ain't worried 'bout that shut eye
Got more problems than counting sheep
5 am comes like a lullaby 
She's a mystic while you're catching zzz's

She is turning in waves of black
See her hiding in your conversation's past
She is waiting for heavy face
Reading lashes till the night sends her to space

Eyes are closed, hair is down, no one knows why she's around
Behind those lids, she's chased by monster memories, behind those lids, she's doing time in the sheets

But she ain't worried 'bout that shut eye
Got more problems than counting sheep
5 am comes like a lullaby 
She's a mystic while you're catching zzz's

III - Tiny Wings

Tiny wings
In webs of my sacred things
Bless the orb
I've drowned in what I'm looking for 

But you watch from your seeing glass
My freckled face cant match the lunar eclipse 
In your world in your 

Mass
Of course
I'm not going to be repaired 
But more so cured
If you'll be there

When I escape from my intellect
Your cosmic eyes will make me simple again
In our world 

In those scaled
Down eyes
You must be frightened by my plaster disguise
My dampened cries 
Dance cross the surface of your tranquil skies

For I'd be lost in an honest place
My freckled face can't live alone in this place
I'm so sure

IV - Secret Lover 

meet me at 9 she wrote to you 
And your broken heart said "let's take a walk and a smoke"
she said "wait till it's after dark"

You stayed up all night on her porch and waited for some confirmation
She gave you more than you ever hoped you could almost forget your desperation  

Cause it feels good sometimes - even hopeful sometimes
And it feels wrong some times - even dangerous sometimes
But you get lost every time you feel

The kind of heaviness that you can only receive
The kind of happiness that you can only perceive to be true
When you know that there's another
Hours, you never seem to regret
The kind of power you get with no self respect
That's love
When you're the secret lover
That's love
When you're the secret lover

She said "let's run away for a while. He thinks I've gone on business." 
You take the chance, you get on a plane - the air feels thin like your existence
And suddenly her world turns around - she's gone back home
& though you were determined
She was only messing around those ghostly nights
But you weren't

Cause it feels good sometimes - even hopeful sometimes
And it feels wrong some times - even dangerous sometimes
But you get lost every time you feel

The kind of heaviness that you can only receive
The kind of happiness that you can only perceive to be true
When you know that there's another
Hours, you never seem to regret
The kind of power you get with no self respect
That's love
When you're the secret lover
That's love
When you're the secret lover

V - If That's What You Need Me To Do

Heartbreak takes time and I'm not quite ready to leave
Your stuff's on my bed and your heart's still here on my sleeve
I know I can't hold you... I know it's what's best for you...
So, I'll give you space if that's what you need me to do

You come back once and a while to speak of before
Like the gentle and intricate dance the waves do for the shore
Promises crash over me when I'm dreaming of you...
But, I'll hold my breath if that's what you need me to do

I'll break up the weeks by writing you love songs
I won't be complete... At least not for too long
I'll hold back my thoughts and write them in poetry
For that day - when you come back to me

Don't let your pride stop your heart from coming back home
I'll be waiting inside by the fire that's been keeping me warm
So, take your time traveling... I'll still be in love with you...
'Cause, I'd wait forever if you said you needed me too
Yeah, I'll wait forever if that's what you need me to do

VI - Staten Island

Bright morning kisses, my mind reminisces ~ the start of a soft winter day
And I'd stay here forever in this gentle weather but, the north's been calling my name

I'll be steady, consistent, we'll make up the distance
We've wanted this all along

Our world is filled with connected existence
We too shall carry on 
We too shall carry on

You'll go back to your island our distance will widen - but space won't do us no harm
'Cause time is a sentence - a series of lessons we learn to keep us strong

And we won't be divided by the time that's provided
I've wanted you all along 

Our world is built on the filling of silence
We too shall carry on
We too shall carry on

I'll leave my heart there in Staten Island
We too shall carry on
We too shall carry on

VII - Tragedy 

I thought you'd come right back to me but now I'm not so sure
- You know you're really in it when you're still expecting more -

Why does this feel so comfortable when everything has changed?
- You know you're really in it when you disregard the pain -

They say you're just a phase
They say I'm better off
They say it's all a game that I've already lost
But I know you're the kind of soul that doesn't slip away
I'd like to think that one day it'll boil down to fate

It's getting cold but I still feel you here
I used to bear it all and hold in all my fears
It's a tragedy our love story got paused
Take a chance - remember me 
This heart's where you belong

I know I've not been thinking straight - not sure what to believe
But I feel you're getting closer to coming back to me

They say I'm just insane
They say I should've walked
They say I should contain my loving natured thoughts
But I know you're the kind of soul that doesn't slip away 
I'd like to think that one day it'll boil down to fate

It's getting cold but I still feel you here
I used to bear it all and hold in all my fears
It's a tragedy our love story got paused
Take a chance - remember me 
This heart's where you belong

VIII - Happy Place

Lakes and trees
Browns and greens
The happy place I used to see

Deep blue waves
Made me brave
With the inspiration I used to need

But when I see your brown eyes - I see the Adirondacks glowing in sunlight
Your aura is magic and I've never been quite so completely relaxed in love

Seems like my happy place has been replaced by you

Boats and wind 
Time to swim
Through nostalgic darkness in my dreams

Midnight fires
Adult desires
Fill in the love I used to need

But when I feel your heartbeat my raspy composure is suddenly balanced
Holding your bright skin I feel I've created a new religion here

Seems like my happy place has been replaced by you

Went to bed with a goddess and woke up with a marble statue
Awoke from a light sedation to see the Adirondacks in you

Our blended breaths
Manifest 
A raw escape - a secret place so new

Seems you're my happy place
Seems you're my happy place
Seems you're my happy place
Yeah, my happy place is you
