The Taken Girl
She stands by me now
elegant and fair
marble white skin and ivy green hair
She does not know
the power she holds
to pull on my heart and quicken my pulse
But her love is not mine
we're not to be together
so I'll dream of a kiss that's meant for another
The Beautiful Stranger
She wears trouble like a little black dress
Her beauty, like a black hole, never lets you go.
I've seen your face in many a crowd
You steal my gaze whenever you're around
But who you are, I'll never know
a love so far, and yet so close.
A Great Start
An endless gray
an impossible endless gray
engulfs my life
Gone are the vibrant colors I once enjoyed
I drift along
through a tepid sea
Old Man Sorrow
is shadowing me
When I met you
the clouds parted
and sunlight filled my life.
The mention of your name sends shivers down my spine
There was once a time when I called you mine.
A stain on my past blacker than pitch
I can't think of you without muttering
