song: every sad song





every sad song

you might get the blues but you’ve still got to choose
no one else can walk in your shoes
your promises stood until they fell
your life felt like heaven but who can tell?
the worst thing’s the best thing that can’t stand its ground
the way up’s the break ups the heart hits the ground

every sad song sounds like
something ending
every sad song sounds like
something bending too far
so here we are, so here we are
every sad song stuck in our hearts

every sad song sounds like
something ending
every sad song sounds like
something bending too far

so here we are…

song: i hate waiting in line


(c) 2017 douglas brent smith


poem: i wonder about you


i wonder about you
wondering about me, how
you might imagine this
changed by a kiss
or feel the pull
of something more whole
our gravity keeps crashing
but that's no reason
to cash it in

i wonder about you
all. the. time.
