Coyotes, Dust, and the Cost of Love


now go go, just let it all go,
somebody’s gonna go fetch her, you know…
don’t think twice, we both know you can’t do this alone,
so go go go, go bring her back home…

and i feel the earth’s heart beat, under my feet
pulling me back, it’s hypnotizing,
do you believe in fate? do you believe in grace?
do you believe that we were made to change?

oh go go, go bring her back home real quick,
without her, you’re whole world ain’t worth a lick…
go go, the moon swells into a bright enough glow,
for you to ride through the night, and bring her back home…

oh oh oh, the coyotes howl echos in the wind,
she hears it and feeds on the rush of adrenaline,
the pounding hoof beats and the cloud of dust,
charge in the hot summer night with the reality of love…

it’s a chase, it’s a fight, it’s a battle, it’s life
it’s a flash, it’s a thunder, it’s the wild, it’s the wonder,
it’s the bang and the crash, it’s the peace in the aftermath,
it’s the years it’s the tears, it’s the glory, it’s the fears

and it’s the up and down, it’s the distance, it’s this town…
it’s the wrong, it’s the right, it’s the battle cry,
it’s the pain and the gain, it’s always been the same…
it’s the sober it’s the drunk, it’s the cost of love…

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?

magical enough for me


if you’d come and find me
hidden in my mountain pines
then i’m rather certain our love
would bring fairies to life…

it would be as magical as any tale
i could weave aspen bark into gold
and your kiss would break the spell
and then all the enchantment would unfold….

we’d see the birds sing us pretty songs
and lightning works would burst from the skies,
as the pixies awaken the purple mountain blooms,
and sprinkle down sparkling snow in sunshines

and even if we don’t ride off into the clouds
on the back of unicorns as the sun sets…
i will be more than happy to make you mine forever
i’ve loved you since the first moment that we met…

it takes no pixie dust or rainbows,
and while it sounds right now imaginal
i’ve made up my mind not to let this go,
because our love, it could be magical…

child, YOU are the fool


So you think you know love, oh dear
So you think you can save my cynical soul…
Leave me alone if you please Mr. weird,
For I am the expert, & you are the fool…

You are the fool who calls himself ‘romantic’
You are the fool who believes in ‘first sight’
You are the fool who thinks that ‘forever’
Is made up of cliché feelings and rhymes…

I am the expert who has dated many a man
Who statistically speaking, had followed a plan
Bitterness and guilt mixed with anger and hurt pride,
Oh foolish boy, I have the right to patronize….

just walking away…


Funny how one day one wedding
can make everything change…
And for the first time & for the last time…
I’m walking away…

Don’t know if love is black or white
But I know that it ain’t shades of grey…
Never been the kind to leave a friend
but feeling used & left with no name…

Best friends, we pinkie promised
Wrote an oath & signed in pen…
Funny how with time we grow &
Wonder what’s the point of it?

We were best friends,
We were known as ‘the twins’
We grew up in each other’s homes…
Is this really going to be the end?

Cuz you grew up & are getting married
And all this drama is for one day…
You want me to give a toast but,
For the first & last time, I’m walking away

Tired of being the one you call up late,
Always talking about you & your life,
Always me waking up early or staying up late,
Feeling taken for granted & utilized…

So for the first time
And for the last time
I love you girl but I…
Am walking away….

The link among mankind: eternity waits


We’ve all been broken in some form
And yet, all built, along the way
We all have many sins & regrets to date
And we all are still alive enough to change

I don’t care to where you go, or whence you’re from
You are the epitome of creation perfected & loved,
You are human, forgive yourself, forgive humanity,
Embrace your life, embrace your God given strength

Then fill your days with faith
in the wisdom of all that you don’t know…
Life is too short for regrets and hatred & guilt,
Let it go, move on, be human, & learn to rebuild.

Nothing lasts forever
Save the soul & heart of faith.
save the gentle acceptance of burden,
eternally rewarded, eternally saved…

no trades for me.


uncertainty lingers behind the promises we make…
“I mean it, if you do…” is so much easier to say…

Than to admit to you, with humble truth,
i would be crushed if you ever let us end.
than to truly just tell you, that no matter what,
you are going to be the one to win…

you will either win my heart forever,
or you will win when when you break it behind…
but the only reason i’m using these if’s…
is to make it seem like i’m not so blind…

But, honestly, Kevin, you know i am.
I wouldn’t have dated you if i didn’t think
there was a permanent enhancement of
all that we already were & could be…

I know that I am so lucky to be with you.
Yes, i want to be treasured, but only by you.
a dear friend is the greatest treasure of all,
and you, my dear, have proven golden true.

I love you, i miss you… let’s make this last.
i want you, i trust you… while it can’t be fast…
i would have waited for you, another 10 years,
and i will wait for you, despite trials & tears…

i am yours & you are mine.
no questions or doubts fill my mind.

i swear i’ve loved you from the beginning of time.
we were born in the same room, & fate doesn’t lie.
you say you wouldn’t trade being with me for the world…
well i wouldn’t trade you for the world and an extra life…

i love you.
