For One Night

Something that looks so peaceful can be dangerous if you get too close. Yet, I can't take my eyes away from it, given this particular use is much more beautiful than most. My hands keep reaching for its tips, in a simple gesture to keep 'em warm. What people usually think of as life-threatening can be quite the opposite, especially in this present form.

This is the most my soul has been at peace in quite some time, despite the fact I'm currently all alone. It's amazing there's no urge to reach over this moment, and dial that particular number that's embedded in my phone. For one night, sleep will come easy, and my mind will refuse to stray. This one night will serve as a reminder that, despite the difficulties inside, the possibility remains for much more better days.

Brother President

Never thought I'd live to see this day, but I'm thankful that I have.

Be easy.

Crush On You

You have a way of captivating the room, and making everything in it come to a pause. The charge brought against you will be upheld, regardless of the fact there's really no probable cause. There's no point in denying it any longer, because everything about it is definitely true. The truth of the matter is...I got a crush on you.

An exchange of hellos have led to just as many "how are yous." Laughter is always shared by the soda machines when you tell me you need a drink, and ask me which one you should choose. Our days end at similar times, yet we go on about our separate ways. It's all good though, 'cause despite the absence, my thoughts of you remain completely unchanged.

It's not so much the outer you, even though you're fine as hell; it's the intangibles...your mind, speech, and mannerisms that went and captured my attention. It's the combination of all those variables that put my psyche into complete and total submission. I'm definitely feelin' ya lady, and that's said with absolutely no shame. You've given me incentive to step it up, even if all I have to go by right now is your first name..

No Regrets

There are no regrets in what's been said, no desire to create a 'REWIND' button and press it in my head. The hunger of wanting the truth has finally been fed; there are no regrets in what's been said.

At one time, perception took precedence over all else. It was about image, lingo, and style. The change is gradually taking shape, despite the fact it's taking a lil while. Good things are definitely in store, especially going down this path that's being led. For that, there are no regrets in what's been said.

Sure, things could always be better, and will be eventually. Times will be as good as they've ever been. When they are, smiles and laughter will be shared together all over again. Things have a way of taking care of themselves, so there will be less stress in anyone's head. And for that reason alone, there are no more regrets in what's been said.
