Bad Vibrations

The house has gotten bigger since you left
The one thing you couldn’t get was my echo
You took everything else through theft
Taking my heart and leaving my chest hollow

The love poems we read say we have to pay
Or have the universe unbalanced
How can something made from earth and clay
Cause universal turmoil and violence

It’s only love and that is all it takes
It’s a force that binds us all together
When one web is broken it vibrates
The vibration lasts forever

Her Wake

Letting go of her now
With the wind in my face
Off my stretched fingertips
Slipped from her last embrace

Her hair’s flowing fresh scent
Persisting in the winds wake
Heels hammering regret
Finding her intentions were fake

Written in three short verses
How ambivalence can wrong
Emptying my heart’s desire
In presenting this song
