All The Right Moves (Hugs & Kisses)


I think we ought to embrace each other more. It’s an under-appreciated act of love. Political correctness has erased so much passion from our daily lives. It’s as if we’re afraid that even a well-timed and appropriate kiss or hug will somehow get us slapped with a lawsuit instead of positive reciprocation.

ASAP People


I’m in a crowd moving on alone, you’d think that I’d be able to tell the forest from the trees but I’m too close to tell the difference.
I fear that if I back away too much I’ll lose all sense of direction while I practice deflection like a Buddhist with a purpose while in this state of emotion.
People talking like they don’t know how to listen.
People living like they don’t know what a heart’s for.
If there’s emotion you’ve got to let it show.
Do you see a flicker of pain in these eyes?
Leave your worries behind instead of thinking “Oh my God“.
We’ve got pieces missing because we’re puzzles that don’t want to be figured out so easily.
Calling, waiting, debating – Give it time to sink in.
I’m putting down the receiver, I don’t want to hang on every word you say.
Past the point of fighting questions or being scared to let go.

Sometimes silence is the only answer worth giving, so forgive me for not spelling everything out at the drop of a hat.
Let’s face it, this was never what you wanted.
On one hand you’ve got karma and on the other something else that I can’t control.
I’m trying not to fear it because I need to save her.
Somebody save me, I’m looking in the mirror trying not to feel hurt.
Some things can’t be deferred and can only be referred to as an “immediate threat” to the many ways that you love.
Before we drift away let us stay still for a moment, knowing that what we had was worth it, maybe for the first and the last time.
I’d rather take this fall than not to feel at all.
I’ll be the lonely one until I find someone with all of my desires for someone to hold while reaching for places that others would not dare to go.

Anything But Easy


You say that you have nothing to give, but your company is more than enough for me.
Would it really be so bad to be content with all that you are and all that we could be?
We don’t think, we just feel our way through each other’s thoughts.
Lying together, floating carelessly in the depths of our everyday history.
This should be easy & this would be easy, if only we’d stay out of the way and just let us be.
Why can’t we be?
Because there’s something that you won’t tell me, although I know you want to.

You want to let it out, but it’s trapt between the past and the fear of the future.
Of all the things we’ve said, it’s saying nothing that stopped us from being all that we could be.
I want to complete something, other than a sentence.
We can try to outrun this feeling or we can let it take hold and take flight.
The heart has reasons, that reason does not know; and we have something here, if only we’d let it show.
I’m sure that this uncertain state of simply being is not where we’re meant to stay as the days fade.
Perfect moments are made in the moment; we can either make it happen or just let it be.

I don’t want to live my life without you and I’ll take regret any day over not knowing.
The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do was to sit back and let you fall for this or that instead of me.
They don’t know you like I do, maybe that’s just my jealousy growing,
or maybe it’s just destiny speaking into me like a mic.
So take a look at your life and see what you can’t live without before you look at me,
I look at you, and we see what anyone could clearly see.
No questions or comments, I know what I know because I know you better than I know myself.
Let’s get out of our way and see what happens.
This should be easy.
