End of Always

Epitaphs carved in fallen trees

Cracking voices singing out of tune

Flashback of lost pebbles

That meant nothing to me before

Sunken eyes after tear drops

I’ve walked these footsteps before

Descending from another time

It feels like the end of always

Lost Apologies

Speeding through red lights

Running through shattered mirrors

Chasing fragments of lost moments

While a broken record plays in the background

A rising tide of excuses

Filling a basket with words that I should have said

Drying out my lies in the heat of the sun

Uttering the words that I should have said long ago

I’m sorry

Sunrise Preludes

The smell of the rain

The wonderful sound of beautiful moments

The brisk feel of now

That awakens me to hope

It’s been some time now

But for the first time in awhile

I’m not fearing tomorrows

Sunrises have become preludes to new beginnings

I wonder how long this will last

Along the Pathway

Outlines of maple leaves

Crimson colors before they fall

Intricate detail of a fallen tree

Looked at through a black and white lens

Dusty paths that curve left

Destinations hidden behind trees

Rounding the corner looking ahead

Only to find a never-ending trail

Fires crackling

Flames dancing

They lure me in

My hands outstretched

Morning chill awakens me

Deep long breaths exhilarates me

My body aches

I still rise nevertheless

I refuse to stop now
