Subway Rides

Subway Rides








Subway
Rides
Dressed attire
Work
Functions
Drinks
Plans to
Be made


Subway
Thoughts
Disposed
Ideas
Like
Rings in pockets
Safe keeping


Conversation
Starters
Enders
Depending
On your
Type


Doors open
New faces
Smiles
Distractions
For a few
Stops
Pauses
In
Life


Doors close
Advances
Made
Declined
And
No longer
Distracted


Three stops
Pass
Eyes
Stop
Glaring
Flirting tones
Undertones


Low lights
Flicker
Lights
Batting
Eye lashes
Last stop
Last call
Last
Chances
At saving
Salvaging
This moment
Doors Open
Stepping
Off
Doors Close
watching
the Train
Leave
The
Station
Leave
My heart
And when
the wind
Settles
Looking
Over
There
She is
Subway
Rides
Subway
Love

London





London


You don't
Go
To meet girls
For their
Accents
In London


You
Go
To quit
Habits
Stories
Theme
Songs


American
Girls
Girls
in
General


Fashion
Pub crawls
Big Ben
Carousels
History


Making me
Feel old
Each morning


But crutching
On jet lag
Instead
Of gin and
tonics


Conversion
Rates
and Metric
Systems


Return
Trips
Pockets
Empty
And transatlantic
Flights


Just
Loves forgotten
Habits broken
dropped
In the ocean


You don't
Go
To meet girls
For their
Accents
In London

Boy Friends Girl Friends

Boy Friends Girl Friends


Bar drinks

First 

Rounds

Second 

Details


And last 

Calls

At life

Being

Boy friends 

Girl friends


Decisions

To late

To go back

On

Yet Changes

Of heart 


Wine guzzled

And shots

With out

Chasers

Chasing

Lost

Time 

Adventures

All the

While

Sitting

Still


Can't think

For her

She 

Still

Sits 

On my

Mind

In my

Heart


Late 

Nights

Early

Mornings

Opposite sexes

Shared beds

Shared dreams

Across 

Opposite pillows

Eyes wide shut


But

Shared covers

Legs

Tangled

And hearts crushed


Boy friends

Girl friends

Or

Just friends

High Heels


High Heels

Black
Or red
High heels
Ones that
I should but
Can't
Remember

Standing
Too tall
In stature
Or 
Too short
In thoughts

For poses 
Postures
And 
Facades
She'll 
Never understand

Higher
Standards
Living
Expenses

Rigid
Ideas
Commandments
To live by

Sworn off
Her
Like
Cigarettes 
Drinking
Vices
All mine

Lent
Is easier
Than
She 
Is
To forgive
Give up
Or
Just forget

Security

Security


Crowded bars

Night clubs

I'll never 

Attend 

Speakeasies


Ok tight 

Places 

Spaces

Sitting 

Next 

To her


Mixed

Drinks

Emotions

And body 

Language


My mind

A steel trap

My body

An open 

Book


Closer edging

Seats

Hands 

Perfume

Provocative 


Persuasive

Ideas

Beds

Slept in

And breakfasts

Tomorrow

Morning 

Has


My heart

Racing 

Beating

Faster


Just in

Time

As

Security 

Steps in


I can't

Or won't

Let her

That close

To 

My heart

Paris

Paris


Let's 

Jet set

Fly

My miles 

Worthlessly

Used


Paris

Where

I've been 

And you haven't

Yet

Well

Hours

Away


Bonuses

Burned

Like cash 

Cows


Milking returns

Sound 

Investments 

And our

Relationship 


Strains

And pulls

Tightly 

Enough

To let it

Slip

Through


Cracks

The city's

Old

Architecture 

And

Our 

Relationship 


Champagne

Dry

Not sweet

My

Love life

Between

The sheets


Espresso shots

Wake up calls

On life

And 

Sleepless

Hotel rooms

Of what

To do next

With her

With me

With us


Pictures

Taken

To capture

Memories

Only to be

Displaced 

Lost or forgotten


Reluctantly 

Returning

Home

Ground zero

To where

It started

And where 

It will end


But your 

Picture

Us

Together

Paris 

I'll never

Forget

Texting Tragedy

Texting Tragedy 


Hey I'm 

sorry

I forgot to 

respond 

the other day


..


I'm done

You're 

Chasing

Texts


Or you


You 

Don't 

Have to

'forget'


Because I

Won't

text

Anymore
