Someday Maybe

The Stories In Between

I made a promise
To an old friend
That I’d be back
This way someday

But a restlessness
Sleeps down
Inside me
Burning questions
In my heart

Where in this world
Can I call
My home
Where in this
Do I belong

I’ve walked a long road
Full of beginnings
When all I wanted
Was an end

Will you still
Remember me
Is there still a place
Inside your heart

If I come back
This way someday
If I come back
To you
Someday

Someday Maybe

Hide & Seek

Barista Linda pick for Pay It Forward Thursday at the GDGC

The Stories In Between

I can’t remember
How many days it’s been
Lost in these hours
Through deep exhale
The crisp autumn air
Burns cold
With each inhale
There’s so much more
I can’t remember
But I do know
How much I miss
The fallen leaves
Midnight bike rides
The old church
Where I would hide
And smoke
But hiding from what
Was I really hiding
If nobody is seeking
They never noticed
The rocks
In my pocket
Thrown
At passing trains
Even then
My first impulse
Was to lay down
Across the tracks
To catch a glimpse
If only for a moment
Of what waits
On the other side of this
It’s only a matter of time
Till they come out, come out
From wherever they are
But I’ll be safe
In these spaces between
Where no one
Can find me

The Thirst Remains

Barista Charles pick for Pay It Forward Thursday at the GDGC

Penny Wilson Writes

The need in me

to spew forth my thoughts

is undeniable

My fingers are drawn

to the keyboard

searching for that release

I’m the junkie

twitching

for his next fix

I’m the drunkard

looking for his next drink

I’m the lover

yearning for the touch

of your skin

I long

to watch the letters

flow across the screen

as I chase

the cursor

The cursor is

mocking

me today

My thoughts will not

emerge upon the page

Today

the thirst will

remain
