The Color Of My Life

I remember…
Her pouty red lips, when she wouldn’t get her way
The blush in her cheeks when her hand grazed mine
The freshly picked hibiscus that clung in her hair
And the mosquito bite that she wouldn’t stop scratching

The red and white striped hat
Atop the cat of the book we used to read
The little red shoes she wore for Halloween
And the six little flames flickering on her birthday cake

The color of my young fingertips
When she squeezed my hand in hers
As the spots of blood leaked from her fallen knee
Flushing her tear stricken cheeks red

The color of the first Valentine card I gave to her
And the color of the last rose, I almost gave to her

The color of the burning sky
As we both silently waited for our parents to come
The bright red brake lights of her parent’s car
Leaving the school and me behind

The color of the balloon that slipped out of her hand
And floated out into the eternal blue sky
I remember… the red in my life
Jeffrey Lee



The Life We Lived

The life we lived
And the lives we wanted
Are all but footprints
In the ever shifting sands

The lives we wanted
Are but mere fairytales
Woven from the threads
Of our wishful imaginations

While that self defining moment
Has long since passed
And whether by fate or coincidence
We have chosen the lesser

And like all lives
That came and are to come
Will be lived and forgotten
Like footprints in the sand
Jeffrey Lee



A Girl I Once Knew

I once knew a girl
So very long ago
With her wavy brown hair
And eyes that sparkled so

I once had a friend
That was very dear to me
I could talk to her
And she could confide in me

We would share our hopes and dreams
And with it all our dark fears
Growing closer and closer
Back in those young lost years

I once fell in love
That would forever change my soul
With a girl who, would sadly never know
Each and every day, I prayed
To see her again, some day

I once saw an old friend
Walking by, on that fateful day
Which is now etched in my mind
And constantly replayed

I never said hi, or a hello, not even a good bye
I just looked and watched
As my life passed me by
And now I know, I can never go back
Jeffrey Lee



A Late Night Dream

You are my unicorn, always just out of reach
You are my dragon, fearsome and strong
You are my angel, kind and beautiful
You are my demon, revealing all of my flaws

You are the past, I can never let go
You are the future, I could never have
You are everything to me
And yet we have always been nothing

You are the distant light, through the dark tunnel
You are the darkness, swallowing me whole
You remind me of everything I wish I could be
You remind me of how short I have fallen

You are a name, whispered in my dreams
You are a figment, of something that was once real
You are the girl, I used to know
You are just a stranger, of a life that never was

I open my eyes, and you aren't there
I whisper your name into the darkness
But there is never a reply
I close my eyes and all I see is darkness
Jeffrey Lee
