Small Town Hearts

We have tonight
   and it is ours
Savor it
for it's only one night i'm yours

We laugh
We reminisce
As "Don't Stop Believin" Plays on the radio
   this song is a joke
and the rhythm is all wrong
but
our small town hearts 
collide
in this lonely world

But don't worry
We have each other
     for tonight
I turn my head
  and a single tear drop
rolls down

I wish I could love you
    the way I love him
I wish you could love me
      the way you love
             her

that's the funny thing
why do we love those
      who don't want us

When we can
  have each other

Tomorrow, we'll adore
      those who ignore us
               What a joke!
And like the song
      We've got the rhythm
       all wrong

At least the melody
            is
beautiful
           but
        complicated
                      like us

Two Wolves
Two wolves came to me
           in a dream
One good
One bad
Who shall I feed today?

Living with the Mirrors

She stares at her reflection in the mirror
Barely recognizing the woman staring back at her.
      Thinning hair
     Time worn skin

Her beauty has faded gradually over the years
like a faded rose petal
   dried and pressed
in the pages of a book long forgotten.

Her memories are no different
    Shattered fragments
     Sharp and dull
Scattered like broken glass.

She then hears music playing in the distance

"On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas,
Rising up through the air"

A faint smile crosses her lips
To a memory that croons inside her soul
She sways to the music
and drifts to a time 
lost,
yet not completely forgotten
Young, naive, and in love
                         with love
and a childish notion that time  
                           was limitless.
