#WriteFree365 – Day 273: Baby, I’m A Star

Leave a comment

(Three-quarters of the way through this.  This year has flown by.  I don’t know if this challenge has anything to do with that.  Either way, it’s fourth quarter time.  Day 273…)

Hey! Check it all out! Baby, you know what it’s all about…

What you see
When seventy-one inches is the same as staring up at Everest
And the arduous climb to the summit places intimidation on your chest
Is nothing but me
Showing you
What happens when one decides to stand atop his obstacles

I’m not a mountain of a man.
Just a man with enough faith
To believe the base makes the size of hurdle daunting
But with one foot in front the other
The peak gets closer
And my head is much closer to the divinity
You feel when looking at me.

#WriteFree365 – Day 272: Secret

Leave a comment

Everyone has a secret, but can they keep it?  Oh no, they can’t…

I’ve shared something with you
Something no one else has
Yet everyone knows it’s gone
I know the whereabouts
You are the cave of wonders
Unaware of the wishes that lay inside you

The way I lay inside you
You’d never believe me if I told you
But I told you nonetheless
Able to hide my nervousness in the tremors of your thighs

See I knew
This was the best way to tell you
It’s safer that you don’t know exactly what you keep safe
Just assume
Like everyone else
That it’s gone..

#WriteFree365 – Day 271: Hey Ya!

(Today is possibly the last Outkast show ever.  While I could not attend, their music inspired this entry.  Andre 3000 put gems in this record.  Day 269…)

Y’all don’t wanna hear me.  You just wanna dance…

While we’re getting our groove on
Stepping in rhythm to infatuation
The bass of our medley
Don’t let the truth get lost in the beat
Left on the dance floor
And we just boogie for the sake of boogie
Then blame our possible departure on that
Instead of simply saying
I’m too tired to dance anymore.

#WriteFree365 – Day 270: Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair

Leave a comment

(I’m often intrigued by how I view breakups compared to others, artists in particular.  This song is interesting.  Day 270…)

Do the Macarena in the Devil’s lair.  But just don’t sit down, ’cause I’ve moved your chair…

It may feel like I’m pulling some kind of prank
Your comfort has been moved
Like I’ve rearranged your room without your permission
But at least I told you about it.

It’s tough to see this as better for you
Now that this place
Though empty
Is still too crowded for you
Standing room only
Barely welcome in the doorway
Of what used to be home
Please
Wipe your feet on the mat
It’s easier to clean the dirt there
Than when you tracked it through my room
I don’t want traces of stains
That show your path to my bed
All the areas you used to rest
Just
Don’t touch anything…

#WriteFree365 – Day 269: Moondance

Leave a comment

(Get into Van Morrison’s music.  I think I write a lot about space because it’s me trying to describe the supernatural feeling that is creating something.  Day 269..)

Well it’s a marvelous night for a moondance, with the stars up above in your eyes…

You look so beautiful in the night
The stars fight over being pieces of jewelry
And most settle as sequins

The planet disappears when you’re in my arms.
Comets take a seat on Mars
To watch our souls in motion
You tango with me
And make my mortality much better than it is when I’m alone
You give rhythm to a man who
Without you
Had two left feet.

Moonlight is the Sun smiling at our steps
We glide across space
Like words to page
And always finish with a dip.

#WriteFree365 – Day 268: The Party & The After Party

Leave a comment

(The Weeknd may sound like a dying zebra when he sings, but there’s no denying some of his lyrics.  Day 268…)

We can play all night.  It just takes one night to let me fucking prove this feeling I would give to you…

The distinct sound of pointed heels down an empty hallway
I never knew angels without wings could still levitate

Your walk
Makes me wonder how far you bend for the god in me?
If your legs can dangle and keep their grip.
If I grip here
Do you moan louder than when I grip
Here?

I bet you look radiant covered in white
Your smile tells your favorite color

The look in your eyes suggests
You’ve thought of how I look with your chin raised
If I can make you feel closer to me the farther your face is from mine?
Can you trap my soul between your legs?
Can I grab yours through your throat?
If I could teach you to fly with your back against the wall?
Are you able to withstand earthquakes
And keep your bridge in tact
When my hand changes its shape?
Questions that would be lovely if answered
But will never be answered
I’m not denying the idea of attraction.
I’m not denying the idea of curiosity.
But peace is more important than selfishness forever
And forever is where you’ll remain
If covered in Never Will.

#WriteFree365 – Day 267: Tenerife Sea

(I’ve fallen deeper in love with the guitar over recent weeks.  This song is beautiful.  Day 267…)

All that you are is all that I’ll ever need…

It may seem like the days blur together
Yesterday is as memorable as the second breath in the morning
But you
Gorgeous clarity
Are where my eyes are drawn

I notice the curve of your lip when you smile
And can list the reasons why I think you’re beautiful by color.
My smile looks the same
Because every single day
I find something new…
