Open windows and closed doors
silent rooms, filled with space
Vacancy lives here

Dusty outlines where pictures dwelt
empty frames with broken glass
Memories torn from their place

An abandoned bed for two
pots and pans and furniture, divided
A life pieced out

Echos of laughter
images of children at play
The haunting reminiscence

A box of memoirs
a collection of promises
Void of their worth

A house once a home
united by a family
now a structure, purposeless

A love uninterrupted
still alive, but not united
Vacancy lives here

"Not as We"

Reborn and shivering
Spat out on new terrain
Unsure unconvincing
This faint and shaky hour

Day one day one start over again
Step one step one, I'm barely making sense
for now I'm faking it 'til I'm pseudo making it
From scratch begin again
but this time I as I, And not as We

Gun shy and quivering
Timid without a hand
Feign brave with steel intent
Little and hardly here

Day one day one start over again
Step one step one, I'm barely making sense
for now I'm faking it 'til I'm pseudo making it
From scratch begin again
but this time I as I, And not as We

Eyes wet toward
Wide open frayed
If God's taking bets
I pray He wants to lose

Day one day one start over again
Step one step one, I'm barely making sense
for now I'm faking it 'til I'm pseudo making it
From scratch begin again
but this time I as I, And not as we
