The Perfect Ride

Leather reins in both hands.

My heels down barely touching the dirty silver ring of the stirrups.

Eyes up.

I click my mouth and you go,

Starting in a walk,

Then transitioning to a trot.

One two one two I post,

Gliding with you along the far wall.

Looking in the mirror,

Checking my stance.

I roll my shoulders back and point my toes up.

The soft half chaps brush against the dressage and sporting saddle.

You keep going,

So graceful.

Every single step is thought out,

Well done.

My hands,

A quarter of the way down your neck.

Everything is silent.

Everything is the way it should be.

Celosia Dahlia (Burning Flower)

Celosia Dahlia is a gentle soul.

She glides through the wind like a shriveled up foliole,

A woman taken by the sky.

Never in a million years will you find something like her.

She lived in a phenomenon

A malevolent generation,

Still living in a darkened time.

Her heart is made of fire.

Would you listen to her if she promised to take you to heaven,

Would you fall for her devious stratagem that she masquerades as love?

When she brushes up against one, she gives chills.

She is not visible to you,

Her eyes glow an electric red.

After making contact with them you are unable to look away.

All of a sudden she is gone.

You feel a sudden urge to do cruel things,

She controls you.

Your dreams unwind,

In a devious state of mind.

Still Alive

I dodged your bullets,

Yet i’m still bleeding.

You broke my heart

And I'm still breathing.

I’m still alive.

I can do it on my own.

You took back your heart,

You gave me as a lone.

What good is loving you if it's only toxic?

I’ve tried to let go.

But it keeps coming back to this.

I’m still mourning, missing you.

All of it comes without warning,

But the world doesn't stop turning.

Paper Airplanes

All of it folds together like a paper airplane,

You live your life unfolding new pieces of paper,

Except the paper is a new light

Guiding you through life.

You have to take the bad things and fold them into place,

You have to accept the intolerable things that you have done

You must fold them away,

Saying farewell.

You have to fold every year that passes

And unfold a new year

Saying goodbye to the past,

And saying hello to the present.

Every fold you make is a part of your life forever

Except the fold is a decision or memory.

You will remember every fold you make,

Thinking about how it made an impact on your life.

You will teach others how to fold their paper airplanes,

Having them learn from your mistakes.

And when we start to live our final days.

Hold onto me as we go.

It'll all be okay, bud,

I'll show you the world ,

As we roll down this unfamiliar road.

Don't be afraid I’ll guide you home.

And although this wave is stringing us along

Just see the best in everyone.

Just know you're not alone,

Cause I'm gonna make this place your home.
Settle down,

It'll all be clear.

Just don't grow up too fast,

you have the word to discover,

But you'll be reminded that your home is always here.

Don't pay no mind to the demons

They fill you with fear.

Ignore what bad may come to this town,

The trouble might drag you down.

Things get tough but things will turn around.

If you get lost, you can always be found.
Just know you're not alone.

Cause I'm gonna make this place your home.
