fishing in your eyes


holding my breath inside, i look into your brown eyes…
searching for your soul and what is written in your gaze
and i realize you are fishing within me too, to see what you find…
both of us are too proud to question or admit, what we’re asking with our eyes…

Oh did you just feel that spark when we kissed?
is this just me, or are you also falling in?
i want to know from you that you’ll commit…
promise me, I’m the only girl you’ll hold like this…

oh but, neither of us wants to be the first to dive
neither of us will speak with more than our eyes…
neither of us will be the first to put our hearts on the line…
oh but, I’m ready, if you’re ready to give us a real try…

may be crazy, but it’s okay…


Maybe crazy…
but I’m realizing more & more…
that it’s okay baby…
for us not to be totally sure…

as long as we keep loving each other
day by day, we’ll get through…
So now i’m gunna stop anticipating…
and just let myself fall hard for you…

Now, I’m rather anti-romantic…
roll my eyes at candles & a rose…
but if you wanna go for a walk in starlight,
I’d be game for holding hands, I suppose…

And while I don’t use pet names…
you’re still the only mister in my life…
I just hope you know that i miss you…
if we can last past the distance, we’ll get by….

So for now, i’ll just sing in my car,
and send a paper letter with a heart…
you can concentrate on school & family,
and looking at me like no one else even starts…

may be crazy,
but i’m okay
with just waiting
until we have more to say….

a song is not enough


I would write you a song,
but music notes
just simply can’t reach
to the depths our relationship goes …

and I would write lyrics too,
but words truly are too few
to describe what I’m trying to…
say about me & you….

and a song is only minutes,
but we’ve known each other for years,
a song can’t ring our laughter,
or echo the strength of our tears…

and it would have to go on & on & on…
stuck in our words, hearts, & minds…
and since life is not one big musical,
instead, a poem simply always seems right.

Just a short little verse that doesn’t
even pretend to scratch the surface of ‘us’…
a sort of note to prove that i truly tried,
but music isn’t enough… not for love.

tough roads… tough love


it’s going to be tough on us,
ain’t no short cut or easy riding,
all mountain gravel roads with with ditches,
But, we’re going to just keep on driving…

Because I got the sunshine of your smile
when the clouds turn rainy & dark…
you’ll have my laugh & hopeful comfort,
when life burdens your weary heart…

And once we are together,
nothing can come between us…
but there 750 days of unmapped,
unknown, plain old tough stuff…

But we’re going to make it through this,
we’ll wait out the storms & endless nights,
the traffic & the freezing cold long winters,
through the silly misunderstandings & fights…

the best things are worked for,
waited for, elbow greased, & prayed for….
Sacrificing, total giving, heart & soul,
I’ll give you all of this & even more…

because, though you are not
the only good guy i could get, true…
you remain the one i want & love,
and you are the one i choose.

So for once in our lives, oh my love,
we’re going to see this through.
Because I’m tougher than the roads,
or at least I am when I’m with you

clock watching…


I remember your silence
that almost broke my heart…
you said if that’s how long it takes,
then, you would wait to start…

I remember the guilt & hurt I felt,
weren’t you happy for me somehow?
thought it was so unfair of you
but, believe me, I get it now….

It really is best, I know that,
some experience abroad & here,
but somehow that extra 6 months you say,
seem like you’re asking for 6 extra years…

I want what’s best for you,
so I won’t tell you to turn the job down…
but I can’t bring myself to speak,
so the silence is mine, & I get it now…

I get the questions & answers
when what’s best for you is what’s worse for me
the silent shock like getting winded,
750 more days of clock-watching…

making you fall in love with me…


I sat there contemplating how,
I could have fallen for my best friend?
…Came up with an ingenious scheme…
a check list plotting our destined end…

…thinking…

“I’m going to make him love me!
I know everything he does & doesn’t seek,
how hard could it be to make us right?
I’m going to win his heart this week,
Make him truly happy & proud of me,
and then, everything will be…alright”

everything went along just as pre-concieved…
you fell for me, or so I believed…
all within that fateful, anticipated week…
—but really—

3 years ago, I kindly declined,
an offer of more than friends from him,
told him to move on, don’t wait around,
little did I know, he’d made his own plans…

thinking…

“I’m going to make her love me!
I know everything that she wants & needs,
I’ll just have to become one of those things…
I’m going to win her heart with time
be her best friend for all our lives…
make her happy, until she finds… we should be a ‘we’…”

It worked, because now i love you…
funny how you love me right back too…
as much as I may complicate just about everything…
I’m glad you chose to stay & keep on loving me

love like summer rain….


Nothin’ new going on in this small town
‘cept a rumor made up by some girls…
it’ll make it’s way round then fall out…
as people realize it don’t change the world…

lights turn off & lights turn on at the same hours
each night, in each house, in each room…
everybody got their routine down to a T…
except me, and my every changing life tune…

& i’m pretty sure they all think i’m kinda crazy.
but they love me like a crazy summer lightning-storm…
and they may think i’m sweet like a rose,
though, believe me, they can all tell you bout my thorns…

but mostly, they say quirky is just fine…
and they hope i can settle down & love the views.
just be at peace & learn to be happy….
learn to live years with out need of changing news…

I could tell you everything they’d say, i’m sure…
but you don’t really care what they think anyway…
you promise me that the future with you there,
will give happiness a new meaning, a new name…

I really think i could someday belong here…
I’d learn to roll my windows up & turn the volume down,
maybe I could even have a daily time i turn my lights out,
but without you, i could never truly be happy in this small town.

because what’s life without love?
it could be any, any life at all…
i could be sitting in the beaches of hawaii,
and i’d still be hoping for you to call…

i love you too much, i’m sure.
so much, that no one else could ever take your place.
no one else, & nothing else,
…not even a whole town, loving me like a hot summer rain.
