The Longest Wave

The longest wave....... Life has waves, ups and downs. That space in between each wave can be brief, but when it hurts, it feels like an eternity. The beauty of this song is the hard reality that relationships are not always what they seem.  Losing people hurts, losing people we never dreamed would not be there. "A seamless little team and then we tanked, I guess were not so sacrosanct". Foundations are not always as strong as we thought, and friendships will end suddenly. It will stop you in your tracks, and knock you to the ground.  The other side to this are the friendships, and relationships that remain despite the monsters. Those people are family sometimes by blood, sometimes simply because they are still there. I am so thankful for those in my life who are still there. I love you.





Throw me all around
Like a boomerang sky
Whatever you do
Don't tell me why
Poppies grow tall
Then say bye bye
The wave is here

A seamless little team
And then we tanked
I guess we're not so sacrosanct
The tip of my tongue
But then we blanked
The wave is here
Waiting on the wind
To tell my side

Ready set jet
But she never gets far
Listen to your skin
From the seat of my car
Two centipedes stuck
In one glass jar
The longest wave
Waiting on the wind
To tell my side

Whatcha want
Whatcha need
Do you love

Maybe I'm the right one
Maybe I'm the wrong
Just another play, the pirate, and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you're my last love
Maybe you're my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Sterile as the barrel
Of an old 12 gauge
Under my skin
And half my age
Hotter than the wax
On a saxifrage
The longest wave
Waiting on the wind
To turn my page

Steady your sails
For the butterfly flap
Whatever you do
Don't close that gap
I'm dreaming of a woman
But she's just my nap
Your ship is in
Waiting on the tide so I can swim

Whatcha want
Whatcha need
Do you love

Maybe I'm the right one
Maybe I'm the wrong
Just another play, the pirate, and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you're my last love
Maybe you're my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Belly laughs

As time passes I learn to accept my defeats with my head up.
Not every smile is genuine, and not every touch is filled with love.
Having people surrounding me doesn't always mean I am rich, and today is all I have because plans have a way of falling apart, and nothing is certain.
I've learned that even when I am cold the fire can burn me.
Words are not contracts, and I am beginning to recognize that laughter, real, deep belly laughter can chain me to a soul more than the touch of a hand.
I don't know how to sit still with a quiet mind, but I have learned to be easy on myself.
I have learned that I am strong, and I can rise, and just like a star is created from a cosmic storm I can become even stronger, and brighter despite.
Life is hard, genuine people are few.
Cherish the belly laughs

Accept defeat then get back up

The past 6 months have been hard on me. I have been tired, overworked, and learning about this life, and the people in it. Today is day one of prioritizing what is important to me correctly. Family, fitness, school, work. In that order.
You are only defeated if you don"t get back up.
