Seeds of Love

Soon we will be parting

And I have got the blues

My heart and mind are fighting

Oh which one will I choose

My heart tells me I love you

My mind says it’s too soon

Though the seed becomes the flower

It needs some time to bloom

Once the seed is planted

It will begin to sprout

Like the seed the love in my heart

Is growing without a doubt

But love seeds cost just pennies

And many are planted each year

Without the tending they need to grow

The sprouts will die it’s clear.

(For Ericka)

A Lack of Respect

Oh Southern crush name sake of my long ago distant past…

How many times must I kill you before you finally rest in peace?

Would that enlightenment comes to those who seek to resurrect you.

Forgive them for they know not what they do.

Or do they?

Sometimes people are intentionally cruel and willfully ignorant

and I have no use for either.
