Rainy Days Require Contemplation

I miss you

It’s just that simple

No other words are needed

How can a feeling so big be explained in words so little?

I never denied I fell for you in every way one can fall

And when we were down I never gave up instead I invested my all

And you returned

You returned like a puppy that wonders away but gets hungry and then remembers you- you’re always there

And even when I’m mad at you I can’t help but love having you in my hair

I can gaze into your eyes all day- they take me a world away

But yet I’m sitting here under you

You’ve got to go through so many lies in order to find the truth

-and that’s you-

Rainy days wash our past heartaches away

And the sun shines on the bond that we’ve grown

I’ve been searching my whole life for this.

A love that I finally now know is my own.

Lost Ones

I knew what happened before I found out

I clung my little sister close as the shot rang out

I know it’s the holidays, but those weren’t Christmas lights

These were blue and red signifying a terrible end to the night

If I would have left two minutes earlier that could have been me

And the cops took my name down before I could even leave

This neighborhood is desolate- filled with empty souls

How many lives must you take to realize you’re no closer to reaching your goals?

The poor have so much to fight for – why are we fighting amongst ourselves

Instead we act as if we stand alone- as if there isn’t anyone else

Now I look at my streets differently, could it be him that shot the gun?

I guess this is something you have to get used to, growing up on the wrong side of the sun..
