Wednesday, May 19, 2010


if I must, I will

New friends, new life, new chances
Long nights and slow dances
Warm evening breeze
A soft hand to squeeze
And countless opportunities

We stop walking
And speak without talking

Fake love poems
And forgotten trees

My skin is speckled
With ghosts from my past
