#WriteFree365 – Day 300: Lego House

Leave a comment

(This is a monumental day.  I’ve never committed to my craft in this way before.  It’s just amazing.  Day 300…)

I’m gonna pick up the pieces and build a Lego house. If things go wrong, we can knock it down…

Maybe it’ll look better as something else
After demolishing what you fleetingly loved
You can build something worth more permanent adoration.
Discard the pieces that don’t fit
Love the irregular shaped construction
That comes from applied time
I’m sorry your time was inevitably wasted
But at least
You can build something else
Worth more permanent adoration

#WriteFree365 – Day 295: Thinking Out Loud

(Ed Sheeran is really, really good.  I hope he makes music for a very long time.  Day 295…)

And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways…

Do you think angels grew more excited
When our lights grew closer to finding each other?
Did they doubt our collision when I was immersed in depression
And didn’t love myself
The way you somehow grew to love me?
Are we tracked by warmth?
Does your pulse now register on a  seismograph?
Volcanoes mimic bass notes in my ventricles
Did those angels know
Two natural disasters
Could make beautiful music together?


#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…
