The Twist

Standard

Knowing when to hold
Knowing when to go
The art of timing
Be true to your feelings
Knowing what to do
Knowing who to trust
I spin and leap
I focus on love

The Peel

Standard

It’s happening
I can’t stop it
It’s going
I can’t help it
The itch all over
The undescribable dryness
Leave something behind
To move forward
Lose something important
To leap for even more significance

The Tea He Made

Standard

Part of me
He’s leaving with part of me
Blood and flesh
Sweat and tear
Gone
To be gone with him
The home that once warmed us
The tea he made
His smile
His kind eyes
I drew him
Pen to paper
The way he always calls me
His accent, his voice
Part of me
Part of my heart
In the air frozen
Flying off any second

The Rotation II

Standard

A day of haven
Back to cold hard ground
Moments of bliss
Back to reality bound
It’s a cycle, the cycle of life
It’s a balance, the balance of life
Too good to be true
Too true to be good
Rotation of the Earth
The feels and the mood

The Drawer

Standard

I’ll draw new eyes for you
When I can no longer remember how they shone
I’ll trace your new face
Your new figure
When I’ve forgotten how you used to look
No need to worry
No need to be afraid
I can draw you
I can lengthen days
