Heart Full of Rain

the road flows beneath like the waves of a rolling ocean
my heartbeat strains against the rhythm of the miles

and then begin the rain …
a heart full of rain

there’s somewhere behind me you forget about me
in darkness, there’s somewhere behind me
I’d rather you wouldn’t be

and my heart won’t take this strain …
a heart full of rain

rise and fall
we always just get started and then
all the dark clouds come rolling
I concede, the weight has always pulled deep in me
gravity keeps you just out of reach

the oncoming headlights streak like a time-lapse photo
it reminds me of a postcard you sent of Paris at dusk

and then begin the rain …
a heart full of rain

I guess no one’s to blame
a heart full of rain

rise and fall
we always just get started and then
all the dark clouds come rolling
I concede, the weight has always pulled deep in me
gravity keeps you just out of reach

Eventide

At the water’s edge
We breathe our last goodbyes
And heave a heavy sigh
Sublime this place in time

Beneath the dying light
We pay our last respects
And shoulder vast regrets –
‘remember things we can’t forget

A bridge of sighs
Sweet lullabies
Stars that rise at eventide
We collude and we collide

Don’t lose your faith in time this time

At the water’s edge
We find we’re all alone
Longing to be home
A place we’ve never known

A web of dreams
Of evergreens
Of candlelight
Of mystery
Of beauty in asymmetry

Don’t lose your faith in me

A bridge of sighs
Sweet lullabies
Stars that rise at eventide
We collude and we collide

Don’t lose your faith in time this time

The Quiet Game

’round and ’round
we turn alone
together to a place we’ve never known

… and call it home

just like birds
our thoughts alight
on threads so fine ’til startled into flight

and we think
and we feel
and we tremble at times
but don’t talk at all

Black & White

Earlier this week, a friend of mine challenged me to take a picture in black & white every day for a week. The fun bit was you had to post with no explanation as to what or why it was photographed.
It was fortuitous because I had just gotten the TinType app on my iPhone, which simulates daguerreotypes, tintypes, and other photographic processes that are over a century old now.
Nothing award-winning here, but interesting enough to share.

Ellipsis (Drive to the Rain)

if we get a chance
we’ll get out of this place,
‘hop in my car
and drive to the rain
