  1.     

happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts

I have to keep reminding myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts.)
You wanted me to promise to never say it again
Those three words
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Which is laughably easy to do right now because
We are so far out of touch I couldn’t reach you if I tried
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
So I plod through grey days and inky dark nights
Heavy laden with regret
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Tomorrow I will remind myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.

  2.     

when best friends fall in love, everyone loses something

They know we are in love
we are their insecurity
each glance is measured
and every word weighed.

we are fiercely protective of us
God help those who interfere
for now they know this, and
choose to look the other way

we don’t mean to sneak around
we aren’t even lovers
but we have given them hope
and it seems cruel to take it away..

soul-mates but not lovers,
trying to behave as friends.
because she hates me and he hates you,
and everyone hates “us” except for us.

with the lines being drawn
we’ve forced ourselves to choose
between being best friends now
or someday lovers…

so we feign politeness and smiles
how-are-you’s and I-am-fine’s
we speak of children and weather
and die a little more each day

when best friends fall in love
everyone loses something.

  3.     

a soldier comes home, home from the war

a soldier coming home
he gets off the bus and looks around
families are being reunited
and lovers are kissing
all are unfamiliar faces.
he grabs his bag
and goes to the nearest payphone.
soon a cab pulls up and takes
him to a motel.
he has no one to welcome him
and no place to call home.
as he lays his head down to sleep
a tear slides from his cheek to a pillow
he feels so alone.
he doesn’t realize
that a thousand miles away
there’s a girl crying.
wishing she had been there
to welcome him home.
Home from the war.

  4.     

bury my name under your tongue

Bury my name under your tongue
the way I will bury yours
because if my name escapes your lips
surely your heart will call out to mine
and start us to grieving again.

Bury my words like hidden treasure in your heart
the way i will bury yours
because if you mourn for me
i will match your tears
and start us to grieving again
