Death of my Crockpot 

In the sweet southern skies

I could smell the last meal she provided. 

I will eat and embrace the apple crisp it heated yesterday. 

Today at 1:15pm it was confirmed our crock pot passed away. 

We tried everything we could to revive the heart beat of our precious slow cooker. 

Why God why? Why now? 

Please give me some answers and peace over our loss. 

I placed it in a body bag with tenderness, tears, and memories. 

If you could please take a moment of silence to appreciate the life of our slow cooker we will be forever grateful. 

Tears of the Rain 


(1st Verse)
I want to be something you never had,
I want to be your dear friend.
I want to always be there for you,
I will be there until the end.
I want to be a better man,
I want to be the shoulder you lean on.
I want to be the one who adores you,
I want to be here when everyone is gone.

Chorus:
When your world comes crashing down,
there isn’t a rainbow or a soul around,
I will absorb the tears of the rain.
When your world becomes all gray,
it doesn’t feel like you can live another day.
I will absorb the tears of the rain.

(2nd Verse)
I want to be the one who makes you smile,
I want to be the one who quenches your thirst.
I want to be the one who will love you,
I want to be the one who you lean to first.
I want to be the one who dries your eyes,
I want to be the one who touches your cheek.
I want to be the one who gets to have you,
I want to be the one who loves you unconditionally.

Chorus:
When your world comes crashing down,
there isn’t a rainbow or a soul around,
I will absorb the tears of the rain.
When your world becomes all gray,
it doesn’t feel like you can live another day.
I will absorb the tears of the rain.

Bridge:
I won’t forget the day you walked down the aisle,
You decided to take my hand.
It was me that was crying tears of joy,
It was you that made me a happy man.

Chorus:
When your world comes crashing down,
there isn’t a rainbow or a soul around,
I will absorb the tears of the rain.
When your world becomes all gray,
it doesn’t feel like you can live another day.
I will absorb the tears of the rain.

Feeling silly

When he’s close
he makes me mushy.
When he’s close
I’m at loss for words.

When he’s close
my heart races.
When he’s close
his voice gives me butterflies.

When he’s close
his eyes find mine.
When he’s close
his laugh gives me goosebumps.

When he’s close
I want to know more.
When he’s close
I don’t want him to leave.

The Nightcrawler 

Your tsunami of emotions touch me like a nightcrawler.

Your erratic thoughts sit still in each corner of the room.

Deep into the forest,
You seek me like a stalker.

Your words are overwhelming and the comfort is troubling.

Your happiness is too dependent on my accomplishments.

Deep into the night,
Your perception is your reality.

Your needs are becoming sticky fingers.

Your world has my outlines that I didn’t draw with a pen.

Deep into the cold,
You disregard that my thoughts as frozen.

Your brightness is due to my switch.

Your love for me is centered around what I can give.

Deep into the web you create,
You are the nightcrawler.
