please fall in love with my smile again


and i feel cold as the warmth of any love we had fades away
i feel alone in the light, in the dark, and at the end of every day,
but i won’t show the tears I’ve cried, they aren’t who i am..
i’ll only laugh, so maybe you will fall in love with my smile again…

im gonna be a little more of everything


And I am gonna try to be
A little more of everything
And I am going to try
To make faith the truth of my life

And hope is never the easiest thing
And love is never as cliché as it seems
And faith has come to be the battle fought
Day and night, I fight it with all I’ve got…

But it’s not enough for me to say
I’ll figure it all out some other day
I can’t just hide my grudges within
And pretend they are all forgiven…

The way of this world is to act out of fear
The way of this world is to doubt that anyone cares
The way of this world is to put yourself first
But the problem is, the way of this world is a curse…

I shall act out of faith, for I already know the end.
I shall hope & believe the best, over & over again.
And I shall try to will the good of others over myself…
For there is hidden the truest and most lasting of wealth…

I’m gonna be faithfilled against despair
I’m gonna be hopeful, when nobody cares…
I’m gonna be more loving, beyond just me
I’m gonna be, a little more of everything.

Be brilliant. be unique. be free.


I don’t want a label, and I don’t want to be
compared or fit within some special niche,
I don’t want to be bad ass, sporty, girly,
artsy, hippie, scholar, whatever you call it…

When people think of who I am,
I want my name to be the description they seek
I want them to envision a flashing of memories
That could only ever be used to describe me.

I want a little bit of whatever they may know
To be exposed to a lot of something they’ve never seen
I want to create and glow and be as hard to define
as the aurora borealis, with no pictures or movies to see

for within every human, I firmly believe
there is an underlying unique beauty they all deserve to embrace
let us not divide ourselves into this group or that one,
but scrape away titles, and simply be whom & for what we were made.

you are my cuprit, victim, and mystery


you are the embodiment of my every extreme
the one closest to my heart, and farthest from me,
you are the sunshine, the thunderstorm, and diamond nights,
you are the cause and solution to my burning inner fight

you are the loser and champion of every debate,
you are the confusion and clarity when i’m insane,
the one i’ll always attack, and always defend,
you are the newest lover, and oldest friend,

when it comes down to it, you are my blessing and curse
like ying and yang, we are intertwined by the universe
you are the fire that drives my heart into a tizzy,
and the peace that you give me, to calm my inner busy…

you are the neons, the glowing, the black hole, the dreams,
you are the culprit, the victim, and my own mystery,
you are the wishes, and the wished for, the wisher, and the star
you hold the questions, the answers, and the maze to my heart

wanderlust of the heart


i want to feel it all
every tear, every dream, every pulse of light,
i want it to sink into my soul
and bring all the meaningless mundane alive…

i want to feel everything
i want to feel the loss of a love so true & long
then the liberation of breaking free
and swim in the wanderlust of exploring abroad…

a petrifying fear that turns me white with cold sweat
as my senses leep into a keen awareness of every sound,
and the senseless reckless desire to just face every dare
and then a peace of rocking in a kayak with water rushing around

i want intense passion and joy and an everlasting love
to feel the that winning sensation of accomplishment rise
i want to feel the mundane, and feel the urge to run
and then to know deep down that i’m both a fool and a prize

i want to feel it all
and then travel to even more lands.
to gather sands of emotions
that i can let run through my hands…

but more than anything else,
i don’t want to gather treasures here in this life,
but memories and loved ones
full of every meaning brought and felt alive…

tomorrows unkept


with only one year
to love or to fear
the distance within
the battle to begin

to hold or release?
to grant or to seize?
to leave or return?
what treasures to earn?

if it was down to the clock
and i had no way to stop
i’d run to your side
to live before I die…

but with a vast sea
of time’s possibilities
i leave on a quest
with my tomorrows unkept

i take the risk
for dreams are too easy to miss
but is life the sights & the sounds?
or to love with loves to surround?

make you my man…


I just want to kidnap your heart,
steal you away and isolate you,
make you fall in love with me forever,
the way i feel like I really could with you…

every piece of this puzzle fits together
from katherine hepburn to george strait,
but if you’re going to break my heart….
well, i’d rather just skip love if it’s a waste…

oh i’ve not been like this since high school
so sure i want to make you mine…
what’s wrong with me? why is this happening?
why can’t i get your brown eyes out of my mind?

i mean i don’t like brown eyed boys
and i don’t like long distance & roads
i don’t ever make myself so dang transparent
or wait for the guy to say it’s time to go…

but honey, i’ll be a romantic for you…
i’ll be your second nascar fan….
but i swear if you break my heart…
but right now, i just gotta make you my man.
