velvet moon

like a dream you wander
through the side of you
that gathers shadows best

but it’s in the time
in between moments
that scratch at you
and die off as ashes,
your secret revealed
when i sleep

your path is you, you know
so follow it

try to fool me

you can try to fool me
fool me not
but maybe at morning
as the day begins to remind me
that day can be night if i let it
or i can move backwards
through time
deceptions as distractions
flowing through my brain
when it believes that maybe chaos does rule the world

try me, try to fool me, maybe once…
and then maybe, i’ll go to the other leftside of the moon later

reason realized


you are my soul…

i see you as i am inside
looking out
to feel
with your magical sight
positioning yourself
to give me eyes

but still i ask
who are you anyway?
i know what i know what i don’t have
do you?

you have spaces
that my spaces fit in always
leaving me speechless
you are precious and tough
i’m reaching for you

you are a smile that lasts from the first light
to the last dream of you
and for you…

to see you is to hear you
knowing this about me
ever-changing as you read
my mind
to bring me my finest moments

and so i speak to you
we are reason realized
my world inside
as my tiny roots blend with you
