HAVE I FOUND IT The path towards youFeels like a return It feels like I'm walking backto some familiar place A place that smells likefreshly baked bread and melted butter A soft yellow light and the sound of children's laughter fills the house There is music coming from the treesThe birds and the cicadas and the crickets, form a melody that can bend everything solid I close my eyes and the thou...

Dinner - is this what you call dinner?Why did you make it like that?You've been cooking for so many years and you still cook like this?I'm not eating this - I'm making my own foodYou are:Normal, funny, quiet, smartFather, husband, brother, son, friendHurtful words, hurtful slaps sometimesA dinner critiqueIf dinner was a metaphor for you, I'd call you rotten chickenYou broke her down like a chic...
I hope for something; first dance with you
My mind has been stuck on youEver since you held my handAnd told me I looked nice under the flashing lights,over the sound of the guitar solo;And I can't help but wonder,My mind becomes paranoid,Cynical if you will,That I am just some girlAnd you do not think of me like I think of you.I smile as I remember how we danced to the sound of a Portuguese love song.But I am younger than youAnd I wonde...
