I simply cannot stop singing


All the Dishes of meals past are neatly washed

The green grass, plants, and blooming flowers have been watered

I have showered and coffee runs swiftly through my veins

Thinking about fireworks tonight, 1ooth anniversary of Navy Pier

Thinking about being in love, what that feels like

Hauntingly Beautiful and Speechless

A contradiction

I cannot stop singing

A list was made this summer about what I wanted to do this summer

Everything I wanted has been occurring

It’s been so lovely that

When I’m alone

I cannot stop singing

It calms and cradles my soul

As waiting, wondering takes a toll

As long as I am happy, healthy, and full of joy

The music will blare

I will stare forward

An audience of one

As my lungs get a work out of the century

I smile, and hope

With the lyrics this good, the beat this sick, the meaning raw and honest

I simply cannot stop singing




My greatest, strongest love
My deepest, darkest pain
So far apart
It hurts and burns my brain
To think how close we always were
In body and in spirit
To think how intensely I’m missing her
I go to sleep thinking of the day
We’ll sit together again some way
I’ll hold her in my arms
I’ll use my magic charms
To keep us together
It’s all I want all the time
No reason no rhyme
I love her
She is my twin and my whole heart
Without seeing her, it’s tearing at my soul
For only next to her do I feel whole.
It’s Distance.
But there is always my resistance.
I realize we grow up and we move as planned.
But across this land or across the sea.
I will find a way too see her and for her to see me.
I freely give up all gifts and toys and any other prize
Just to look her in the eyes and say how much I’ve missed her.
