Smile, if only for me...
Through the good and the bad
you were always happy, never sad
Through each day you'd smile and laugh
brightening the life of all in your path
But when you died and the world grew cold
I heard you whisper from Death's dark hold
"Just keep smiling, if only for me"
"If nothing else, cause then you'll see"
"The world around you is always in need"
"but give it a smile and it will be freed"
"Freed from the chains that bind it down"
"Freed from the hate that makes us all frown"
"Freed from the sorrow that darkens your day"
"so that our friendship can wash it away"
"Even now, when you feel down"
"and the world makes you frown"
"I'll be here, right with you"
"to make your smile shine like new"
That's what I heard and it rang in my head
as i raced to your house to find you dead
As I sat with you, crying in pain
Some of my tears, they fell on your mane
And as they touched, what did I see
I saw you get up and smile at me
You told me to smile, if only for you
And the reason why I already knew
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
