Spunk of a Chipmunk

This was written on November 28th, 2010

Compared to a chipmunk
So filled up with the spunk
That you've given me
Maybe I'll let the world see
Truth inside of my eyes
Instead of adding to the lies
Which others spit
Acting like they give a shit
Maybe I'll choose to care
I know that I'd dare
Myself to smile
After I've run the mile
Pushing my body and mind
Dragging those behind
So we all cross the finish line
Of life
Together hand in hand
Our toes dug into sand
Someday my dream will be
Something for all to see
For now it just sits
For all the literates
To read and wonder
Tearing the words asunder
Finding meaning where even I
Left none intentionally

You blind and you burn
Even help the world turn
But so much slower
So I have to lower
My own standards
So that I can accept you
Even still you kill
And provide a thrill
Which some will never know
I feel deep inside as though
As though I should show
This world your beauty
You lack concern for us
Flying with fury as I ride this bus
Because we all come and go
We all die and grow
Separating ourselves from you
Melted sand holds you at bay
The glass that lets in rays
Of light and still keeps out your blight
Separates us now
But I will find a way somehow
To show your beauty to this world


This was written on November 22nd, 2010

I'm gonna be a little late
But can't it wait
Just a few more minutes
I'm sure I'll spin it
An awesome tale for you
Of the trials I went through
Just to get to the place
The place where I race
Circling round a lot
Where not a single spot
Of ground is free
Can you find a way to see
That this isn't like me
Because I do not like things free
I will find a way to earn
Find a way to burn
Into your mind
That I never leave behind
My concern for time

The Reuben Supreme

This was written on November 15th, 2010

The sandwich made with love
Tasted as if from above
Where little cupid sits on a cloud
Far above everything so loud
The mustard had good kick
So I was not ashamed to lick
The taste from my fingers
And still it lingers
As it works down my throat
So I wanted to let you know
That I have you to thank
From the bottom of my heart
As you have given a start
Not only to good flavor
That I can always savor
But also to my inspiration
You have given a start
To words I once thought smart
So thank you Danielle
For a sandwich which makes me yell
With Happiness

Rocketship with You

This was written on November 15th 2010

Ride a rocketship to the moon
You'll be feeling something soon
A sense of weightlessness
Where space meets only air
And all of your hair
Flies about restlessly
That's not all there is to see
The Earth is down below
Magnitude of our lives
Is taken to a smaller size
Still it is not size that matters
Because even a small thing
The small person that you are
Can take up all of a man's universe
If you can understand this verse
Then you understand
That this hand
Is driven by a mind
Which is captivated by you
Your intelligence greets me
Your beauty treats me
Then your soul defeats me
Leaves me sitting next to you
Motionless as leaves without wind
As if a man broken with nothing
Still this defeated man has something
The hope that someday
You'll be standing at my door
Waiting for me to come out
Leaving an old life behind
For a new life with you
Sometimes thinking of a horse
A long ride alongside
Racing with wind in our hair
As the sun tries to stare
Us away with its fiery gaze
Still all of our days
Would end with our friends
The four of us watching
As sun disappears
All of our cheers
Echo into the last bit of light
Trapped there until the sun greets again
Life in the country is nice
Days of quiet and peace
Imagining myself
Living with you in the east
Still the city has draw
So a second home I'd have
For my watching of people
Because no matter your pull
There is always more of me
If only a sliver
Which draws like a shiver
Straight up my spine
Deeper into my mind
Where I miss the differences
Forgetting my senses
Of right and of wrong
For all of these people
I break into song
So deep in the city a second home
Though the first will be ours
Where no one shall roam
It could be a small cottage
Or maybe a hut
With straw for its roof
And deepened mud ruts
To proof it from wind
All the while I'm thinking like this
I try to consider your feelings
To consider the fact
That without lots of tact
I won't make it that far
Because you will leave me out of your car
Still I know I'm a creep
For opining my mind and letting it seep
Out onto this page
As I'm not even to the proper stage
We've had no true date
Nor do we hang out enough to state
That thinking these things is even okay
Still if I live life my way
I see that I must open up and say
That I would like to spend all of today
With my mind wrapped and surrounded
Entirely by you

One Night With Me

This was written on November 13, 2010

I can't even begin to write
How I feel on this night
Every word comes out wrong
Almost wanting to break into song
I want things to work out
Wanting to be able to shout
From every rooftop
Because you make me happy
I know that it is sappy
But I like you
Smiling from ear to ear
You bring my life cheer
Still I hold back
Afraid of change
Afraid of making things strange
For you
Because you've been here before
Tried to date
I am not afraid of work
I do not wish to jerk
You around
Just wish for a sound
Or at least a chance
To show you how I dance
So sure you'd enjoy
Still afraid to make my move
No matter how smooth
My steps may be
Whenever I see
Your eyes
Pouring into my soul
Two big open bowls
Of passion and grace
A look upon your face
That which could slay a dragon
So from me you have taken
All but last breath
Which I save
So I can ask you one thing
Will you let me sing
With you tonight
Will you let me take you on one flight
Out into the moonlight
Can I show you how it really feels
To have something real
Staring you in the face
I'm not saying there is love
Never have I sworn above
One chance
With you
Not after all I've been through
Still I'd like one dance
One chance for romance
Tonight I stopped myself
Held myself up on my shelf
Watching you from afar
Despite being inside your car
Because I did not wish to
Or put an end
To your comfort with me
Because I want you to see
That regardless of what happens
You will not be left
Not by me
Even if you do not see
Inside of me
What you are looking for
There is always more
Friendship left for you
Because only if you're through
With me
Throwing me aside
Unless you snuff out all light
Leaving me in the darkened night
Without your eyes
Even then the skies
Will lead me back
To your side
Because no matter the ride
I do not abandon
Will not leave behind
Those who enter my mind
Blazing trails in my heart
Even if what you have
Is only the start
Of what could be
What could fill all that I see
With more color
Than I can imagine
So I'm writing another poem
Another thing I feel
About you and again
Again I regret
But I bet
That I did the right thing
By not kissing you tonight
Though if you would
If you were willing
To give me one date
Just to see how you feel
To see if you'd like
Just see if you'd like
Spending more time with me
It would make me happy

Leave it Be

This was written on November 12, 2010

We keep putting this off
And the feeling is as soft
As your words
When your lips part
Your words give my heart
A startling jump
Which they've always done
Cause even the sun
Fell under your domain
Burning brighter with you around
Every sound had more meaning
But to return
To chance another burn
From you
Well I do not know
What I should do
Will I someday look back
Will I still lose track
Of all the pain
Because it's a bigger gain
When you're around
Even my own sound
Echoes out
With more power
My mouth is last left sour
And still
It is a thrill
To know you through the years
So I'll give three cheers
To not having you here
At least not quite yet
But I can bet
That you will be soon
Again I will swoon
Before the pleasure
Of this I am sure
Because to me you are fun
And I cannot run from the fun

Second Chance?

This was written on November 11, 2010

I find it quite interesting
That after all this time
You are still the reason I rhyme
And do not write
As I'm choosing not to fight
Instead I let the words
Use me
So have you heard?
That I have become the verb
It is so superb
Just letting it go and flow
Because now I know
That all I have to do
Is show to you
That after all you put me through
I have only one thing to show
The experience that
Bloodied me like a gangster with a bat
And every hat I wear
Is used to shadow which I cannot bear
To show upon my face
To our human race
Because I do not know
If I can once again throw
Caution to the wind
No matter where I've been
I will not get over you
Even if the last story is right
If my everlasting fight
Comes to an end
And I come to bend
Before you again
So tell me if I'll win
Will I win?
Will I win if once again
I put my heart in my hand
Taking a firm stand
And holding it out to you
Or will you once again screw
My brain
With your hazardous drill
Causing that shrill
As my skull begs for mercy
A million times thirty
Times did it call
For me to end it all
With reason
Which was just out of season
So now I am left
Again at a crossroads
Staring at the cleft
Just left of my heart
Where the first time
Where the first time you missed
I know naught of guarantee
That a second aim
Will miss what makes me
If you took my stories before
What more are you coming back for?
Do you wish for my life?
Are you here for my soul?
Would you like me to serve it in a bowl?
So tell me why should I trust
Why it is that I must
Let you back in
Because if I ever suffer the past again
I will not survive
I will not contest
I will just lay down
Forever at rest

Going Away

This was written on November 4th, 2010

You throw everything away
Just because you want to say
That she matters more
Every score
There is to settle
Between us
Doesn't matter to you
Because whenever we're through
You're in her arms
Forgetting of my existence
Even if I'm in the room
But you don't care
You can't even smell the doom
Of our friendship
Because you took the one song
That matters to me
You took the one dance I can do
Ran me through and through
So you could let her sing
Because you plan to place a ring
Upon her finger
Letting me linger
Outside for you
So that if your plans fall through
You'll have someone to come back to
You say that there's nothing I can do
To ruin our friendship
But there is, and you're doing it
I no longer give a shit
Because if you keep on
When you wake up
I will be long gone

A Flower for You

This was written on November 4th, 2010

I was in the store so filled with doubt
That my lungs were begging to scream and shout
A flower I could not find for you
That listed off my intentions true
I thought of the purple Camellia
As it met the shade of my face
As all of my breath leaves without a trace
Nothing left when I talk to you
Because your voice still echoes
Inside of my head
Rattling my brain so much
I really should be dead
But I resist the urge to close my eyes
Because of the others who chose lies
Then there was the Camellia so pink
But I stopped myself before I could think
Because some part of me believes
That you would despise
A brightness that stares so deep in your eyes
So I came upon a lonely rose
Of deepness black and it I chose
Because I know your heart is deep in pain
I field so many attempts in vain
So I chose to make a promise
Someday this rose will shine of red
As I have restored inside of you
The truest love any has felt
Because nothing less do you deserve
And so here I am ready to serve
