DifferentPlaces (to Jay)

My dear boy

There are two

Types of people

In this world

Those that retreat

From a challenge

And those that

Charge the same

Those that retreat

Are the followers

And those that

Charge are leaders

One lives a

Safe life while

The other makes

His own life

No one is

Born to be

Either but instead

Chooses either prairie

Or mountain top

Both start at

The same spot

But end at

Completely different places

PiggyAndMe (to Piggy)

And then there

Was this boy

Like life blurred

Lines but brought

Me such joy

Two opposites at

Times opposed but

Always attracted like

Magnets and even

Though thousands of

Miles apart lean

In towards the

Other like trees

On a ridge

On Oahu relying

On the other

For strength oh

Piggy you in

Makeup and me

Bearded we simply

Compliment the other

Like canvas and

Paint separate things

But together art

Creating such beauty


My minds evilness

Conjures like warlocks

Standing over a

Tureen of goo

Falsity of you

Creating lies which

Like all spells

Do nothing but

Emphasize my insecurity

Why oh why

Do I place

You in such

Prisons when your

Only crime was

To love me

Exonerated now freed

From my dungeon

Squinting you turn

Back your soul

Simply asking why

What you’ve done

We are all

Capable of the

Tyranny of love


Like the first

Pages of a

Novel I struggled

With interest but

Now chapters in

I simply can’t

Put you down

I’m saturated like

A freshly watered

Lawn steeped in

Your moisture growing

Sprouting like a

Field of wildflowers

One day or

Flower prettier than

The next soon

I will finish

Reading this book

That you are

Ready to write

The sequel this

Time with you
