    the theory of cause and effect is flawed,
    we expect the outcome to mirror the struggle, that's wrong.

    Tree House.

    hold and Caresse, those you wont let over the edge
    trapped to remember a past of forever's in moments that end
    I held you so close, now your just an essence, a ghost..
    an echoing soul with a message that's told to an empty abode..
    when our lives are hopeless, in the time were growing,
    withered away with the seasons or that simple diagnosis..
    I'm blooming better, but feel the slowest sickness that kills,
    stillness left in me, I felt that energy fit in every posted medical bill..
    I am sorry ma'am, i can never lie what god has planned
    crafted like no other, grafted from my brothers, by your fathers hand..
    time that falls to sand, the guy could hardly stand
    his princess presented a forest fortress, binds of bark and branch..
    when she slipped away, he was filled with rage, then his axe hit
    she spent her days in my palace, I became her cage and a casket..
    I'd never lose my place, or chose to stay as his saddened souvenir
    as long as I've captured you in here, the everlasting truth is clear..

    takes too much to sustain ship
    I left life for what I came with
    roots and oxygen were all I needed
    floated away feeling flawed, depleted
    paper messages floating for hope
    praying they don't sink, they're boats
    birds are my siblings, you and I
    often times commit suicide
    true I died before it got messy
    truth and lies when the land left me
    plant less seed in the back of mind
    laughing inside for the agonies drive
    funny how the waters dictate my face
    running away hoping the hidden will chase
    closing my eyes, I feel I'm winning this race
    where the competitors are my emotions at bay...

    Often forced to wait patience has been a course of fate
    Contortioned state, bending hate around remorse’s stake
    This portions blank, never made a space to call a home
    Or saved a tear to fall, I crawled those places all alone
    Complacent moans, shadows run adjacent to this ship
    The makeshift sea dweller crying lakes to sway amidst
    From every day I lift these oars to brave a storm of bliss
    To every former kiss that landed dormant at these lips
    The Morning mists or winds that brush the fabric at my hips
    To the sun that lifts across the Ocean’s stagnant drift
    A tragic shift, my life has capsized before your eyes
    Baptized in your beliefs, surmised, and casted out to die
    So many pouts of ‘why?’ I build this brittle tree of shame
    Nailed the boards with every tooth I broke to stay the same
    Sailed the open plain of water just to meet you there
    Only greeted my lonely, only me, the only person here

    Guess I’ll wait longer

    Reclusive, she wonders if it's an illusion or a dream,
    delusions seem abusive, she plays music and sings
    to escape change, her faith has been ruined at sea.
    Her love will never return, watching as his ship burns,
    promises swirl in whirlpools during the Atlantic purge.
    She had a bad feeling when he left, but this is worse.
    Carrying his baby inside, her life still holds some light,
    she knows to fight but she can feel her soul collide,
    with hope and pride... coping with the woe despite.
    Angry and depressed, her tears absorbed into the sand,
    fear the warmth of man for as long as she stands.
    A baby born, formed into a man at that very shore.
    His dreams soar across where his father resorts,
    - a monster deep beneath the water's remorse.
    He builds a stronger force to conquer the storm.

    Sailing a ship to the end of his mother's world.

    Her hand traces brush strokes
    Across old oak that smells of home
    A winter's night fire, warm abode
    That is company on a traveler's road

    The daughter tree floats upon an explorer's sea
    Where all sides there are streams of memories
    Old and new in which her roots have grown
    And her interwoven branches sewn

    Patches of summer green, nests of fruit
    And now those birds fly the coop
    Spread her arms, look at the sky
    The little girl has learned to fly

    Farewell father, farewell mother
    She loves them like no other
    Yet the boat crafted over time
    Was always destined for goodbye
    “Those whom life does not cure death will. The world is quite ruthless in selecting between the dream and the reality, even where we will not. Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.”
