Handsome Perfection

His body glistened in the sunlight.
As he stares at the roaring blue.
What he's thinking I can not fathom.
The universe reflected through his eyes.

Still he looks upon the ocean.
Not a blink has crossed his eyes.
How deep in thought I do not know.
A world all of his own.

The water hops off of his skin.
The sun rays dance around him.
Buried deep in sand his feet,
And speckles upon his body.

Through my eyes he's handsome perfection,
No better a man can be.
I love him so, and this he knows
Forever mine he'll be.

Flower Child

Safe she cuddles inside the only world she knows.
Carassing the soft satin that encloses around her.
This is all she experiences and all she wishes to experience.
She is a flower child, inside and out.

Gentle breezes rock her in her slumber.
The warm sun beams through with light.
Small drops of dew in the morning dance around her.
She stretches herself to the sky.

Quiet is her every surrounding.
Not a care or hurt crosses her mind.
She lives in peace, tucked far away.
Hidden from a world she's never known.

But there comes a day where everything changes.
A sudden moment and everything drifts away.
The shell gets cracked and out she falls.
Into a place she could never imagine.

No longer safe inside her skin of satin.
She experiences a world so different from her own.
The sun shines brighter, the rain drops bigger.
The wind quickly carries her away.

She lands on earth she's never encountered.
A strange new sight she's never seen.
She stretches again and looks to heaven.
A new life she starts again.

At first she fumbles, gets lost in the crowd.
She soaks up only what they leave behind.
Withered and weak she seeks new land.
New friends to guide her along.

She finds her right path, her place in this world.
At last she arrives into a place she can rest.
She sticks in her roots and grows tall as can be.
She truly is a flower child, through and through.

Your Own History

I write the history
I wish the world to remember.
Leave it to someone else
And the stories all change.

What I see through my eyes
I can't see through yours.
And your eyes will never
Understand through me.

History it blows
Changing like the wind.
The good become bad
While the bad, understanding.

Be the history you want to make
And write what you want to take.
Don't let someone else
Tell your life story.

She'll Never Know

Her name, Ever Silent.
My voice hushed,
She'll never know.

Her chestnut Hair blowing in the wind.
At the drive by. On the highway.
With the top off.

She turns the wheel.
My heart skips a beat.
A slight brush, a sudden rush.

And she'll never know.

I want to believe there's something more in her smile.
Something more in her voice.

Telling me yes.
Telling me to make my move.

But I won't. I can't.

And she'll never know.

Earth Coloured Eyes

She said to him
"You have eyes the colour of earth."
He laughed
"Only you would say that."

You always did bring out the best in me.

The big city lights and
The restless nights come and wither
Away, but you're home with me.

Safe with me. Here with me.

Even though you're miles
Away, light years away,
Far away. You've never been so close.

He said he would come back.
"You're my girl, I could never leave forever."
She kisses him back.
"You'll never really leave."

Three years ago today,
He still hasn't left. Not really
Left, but tomorrow he comes home.

She still whispers to him, to you
I do still see you, feel you, remember you.
The day you left, the day you never
Really went away.

The day I both lost and found you.
Found your life, your soul, myself.

My country.

I saw it all in you, through you, from you
From him. She learned it all from him.

From his earth coloured eyes.
