“Peter and the Rockstar”
written on 1/11/09

his voice echoes in her ears
sweet and sexy a-sharp melody
whispering in her ear the words she knows so well
body glistening in the lighting symphony
notes that reverberate within her bones

as she sings along word for word
they can make her sway to the chorus of the song
but they can’t shake your heart the way that i could
my simple words don’t follow a rhythm
and won’t make you dance the night away
they won’t parade around on stage
but were spoken just for you

and peter shakes his head
hurt and confused how their melodies wisp her away
and sighs knowing he is just a simple man
but he knows that as the stage lights fade and amps unplug
his words will be much louder
touch her much deeper, leave her much warmer
’cause his words were meant just for her

“Smile”

“Smile”
written on 5/27/07

she said, ‘don’t do that,
you’ll lead them on’
‘don’t you dare hug them,
it’s all so wrong’
‘i don’t like it when you talk to her
and hang out with them.’

but i took her pill, the kind that drained my soul
i could feel the change as my personality crumbled away
her kindness could taste so sweet
that i overlooked the bitterness of her jealousy

i watched the social circles that once surrounded me
become the noose around my neck of her control
suffocating under her scrutiny
the affection she gave was just enough for me to breathe

but now i’ve freed myself of her iron grip
i feel my leaves begin to regrow
my roots grow deep in this brand new soil
as i show my once forbidden smile
