There You Are Again

In the thick silence, on your mind; Tiptoeing, the words between us; Your sleep in interrupted, there is no rest in sight.

There you are again, on my mind

Leaving tracks, the treads from your shoes


A sense of loss



Our tape is damaged, there is no rewind.

In the thick silence, on your mind

Tiptoeing, the words between us


A sense of weight



Your sleep is interrupted, there is no rest in sight.

At least, mine is.

What token can I pay, the change in my pocket

A sense of regret



In the quiet of the night, there is no end to the buzz.

There you are again, on my mind


A sense of faith



Your whispers of love, I hear.

Even across this broken connection, there is an escape.

On the busy street, on your mind

Trudging, the calm you found there

A sense of hope



In our peripheral, rally forth.

I Dreamt You Moved On

I dreamt you moved on

through the muted green background

of the phones that once connected us.

The growing silence,

the spaced messages;

I tried to find the answers

to the universe’s rhetorical questions.

I dreamt you were a leaf

drifting along a stream to the ocean

full of the possibilities that once connected us.

Kissing me along the way,

resting for a moment,

enjoying the space;

we pondered the universe’s rhetorical questions,

for there is no use keeping you from the experiences you seek.

I dreamt you moved on

through to the muted green tides

of the oceans that now connect us.

Hi, hello. Can you help me?

Hi, hello. Can you help me?

I’m looking for who I used to be.

Unconcerned, dazzled by the simple

Things weren’t so clouded then.


Excuse me. Are you busy?

I’m looking for a life that’s a little less dizzy.

Uncluttered, easy to slide into

A soft, warm blanket would be welcome.


Oh, I’m sorry. Am I bothering you?

I’m looking for any progress that’s not been skewed.

Unbiased, quantifiable evidence

That might be easier to understand after tomorrow.


Do you know who I could call?



It’s important I find a sign.


You see, I miss her dearly.

She used to fill me with such joy,

Acutely affecting all facets of my day.


Hi, hello. Can you help me?
