fishing in the sky, or breaking into the dark


and the vines of hope soar like beanstalks toward the stars
intertwining in wishes, and seeking another heart
there isn’t always giants with treasures above the clouds
some times the greatest values are masked as hard work on the ground…

if diamonds, jewels, and gold are all found hidden beneath,
and we are willing to break our backs just to catch one of these things…
ought we naught look underneath how things always appear…
how long will it take us to learn, magic and beans won’t get us there…

all the wealth on earth, whether in a heart or of the ground
requires digging and moving some piled up things around
i know it doesn’t look pretty, as you’re still fishing in the stars,
but I’m the kind of jewel royals use to adorn their hearts…

so you dug up a diamond of the deep
in your search for a magic bean,
you leave me here to go climb into the sky,
or we can kindle a fire, and let our love be purified…

let you become a fantasy


I went ice-skating today…
I wasn’t too bad, I’d say
I saw a man skate past me,
& I almost called your name…

But, he wasn’t you of course.
so I just smiled, gaining speed…
and danced across the ice
as if you were there to see…

I accidentally played our play-list
I burned on a CD, & never labeled it…
I didn’t push eject this time,
because I’m not ready to forget you yet.

I’ll just let you be that happy memory
I’ll let you become a fantasy in my mind…
Like a little kid believes in Santa…
It will help me be nice for some time…

I hate myself for doing this…
but it’s the only way for me to get through.
& if you did actually show up,
I’m not sure that I’d even know what to do…

All I know is that you’re everywhere.
All I know is that I can’t shake you.
All I know is that it’s an endless poem
That I hope I never get through

I would have never moved away from there
If I”d have known I’d miss you this much so soon…
I would have stayed for as long as it took…
to find out if this is truly is too good to be true…

This is only the beginning.
& it’s getting worse with time.
That’s okay, I’ll just close my eyes,
& skate as if you were at my side…

From the truth to a story
& from legend into myth…
I’m not sure I even know
what cupid struck me with…
