Sing me a sunrise
Words full of light
Rose petal moments
To stave off the night
Sing me a dawning
Where waking’s a joy
Where future is past
And I smile like a boy
Sing me a new day
So promise flows out
I hope it’s a good one
To wash away doubt

She sat on the swing without a care in the world head thrown back and laughing to the sky. She couldn’t have been more than sixteen, and it showed. The world had still to break her spirit.
I hid behind the trunk of an old oak transfixed by her carefree ways. She was everything I was not. It scared me in a way. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to be as happy as she.
Then, the girl looked my way, red hair streaming in the wind, piercing blue eyes fixed on me. I melted.
My life changed in a heartbeat in the meeting of our two very different pairs of eyes . And for the first time in my life, I thought happiness might not be so bad, after all.

Nestled in the dawn light,
Snuggled between rays of summers gone,
I lie thinking of you;
Of the time spent dreaming together
And the times spent yearning apart.
Perhaps, when the first bite of autumn frost
Nips at my bare skin,
I shall forget you,
Banish you to the warmer climes of my mind?
Or, maybe, I shall seek out your memory all the more?
It is yet to be discovered,
Yet to be found.
Time, they say, is the greatest healer
And I hope with all my heart that is true.
But like the seasons,
You are and always will be,
My summer love.
It’s raining again,
A persistent spray,
It does not strike
Rather than slide across my skin.
This morning feels different,
More somber than normal,
As I run through the lonely streets.
I pace through a melancholy world
In a melancholy state.
A puddle licks at my ankle,
A branch sheds it’s tears on my face,
But I am already past the point of minding.
The weather is set:
A grey cast threatens to my left;
The right is already lost,
Yet I have never felt so one with the elements.
On days like this,
I wish I could run,
