Ocean Moments

I sit
To watch the waves lap,
Shadowy water brushing glass-littered shore
Listen to the gulls converse
Perfect stranger sitting
Listening
Unknown music in your ears
Pen chasing words on a page

Step from rock to stone
Over water
I recognize you as someone
Shaded eyes linger
Do you see me?

Calm in the midst of noise
Rhythm beaten by the push
The pull
Of gravity
The lunar tides
Rocks to sand
Shells to powder
The gulls call a conversation
The spray kisses the air

Teenage girls, freed from classrooms
Sharing a cigarette on the sand
Smoke and wavelets
Soft breezes carry noises
The him of life
Entrancing

Leave a heart in beach glass
To be carried away by the water
And the old ship
Rusting in its disuse
Time changes the world
An endless entropic dance

Before

Sidewalk dreams and other things
My words, my words
What do they say

Your words, your words
Do you even think
Before you spit out poison
Do you remember
The way it was before

Why do you do
The things you do
My eyes match my heart
The bluest of blue
And I don't know why
Don't know why

Turn me in circles
Cry my rivers
Make my heart
So very blue
Why do you do
The things that you do
Why do you do
The things that you do
Why
I don't know why
I don't know why

Call me a bitch
Fuck with my soul
Tear me to pieces
I'll just ask for more
And I don't know why
I don't know why
The things that I do
Make me and break me
Just as they should
I don't know why
Don't know why

Do you even think
Before you spit poison
Color me cut
To pieces by your love
Oh fucking turn me in circles
Cry my rivers dry
Don't you remember
The way it was before

Cloak and Dagger Love

Bottle Glass Eyes
Don't be afraid
To say hello
In the heartbreak beat of what feels right
Whiskey on the rocks,
Sunlight on your irises,
Shimmer, star...don't fear
There ain't no danger here.
But beware of the intentions
Of cloak and dagger love
Oh Bottle Glass Eyes with your
Maybe somedays, and your Could be something
Don't laugh at dragons, child.

Bottle Glass Eyes
Don't be afraid
To say hello
Cause nothin's never nothin'
In this inverted world
Just change the pace
You can't erase
All the things you haven't done
Let's not and say we did
Coulda been something said by someone
Somewhere
I really just don't care
Throw stones
Throw stones
Make these glass houses shatter
Oh Bottle Glass Eyes, let's not and say we did
Don't run away from someday
Don't run, run, run
Break the locks that bind you here
Don't be afraid of chains
Oh no.

Bottle Glass Eyes
Don't be afraid
To say hello
Oh no
It's a push-pull
It comes in waves
It takes you and makes you
Into what you don't want to be
Be wary
Be wary
Be wary
Of the intentions
Of cloak and dagger love
Maybe someday
But nothin's never nothin' in this inverted world
Oh no.
