More from Jordan Newman

i see angels above me, i see demons below me, fighting over heaven.
i loved her more when i was sober.
i don't want a second chance.
love starts with that of a flickerin' cigarette
i swear i could feel your love before i knew your name.

soul mates

Lately it feels as if I've been floating bye
almost like I've become nothing but a specter,
my dear; because i feel tragically lost here.
On the clasp of a woman's touch i feel so dizzy
that i may just throw up for i figured no lady
would ever have chosen me to act so damn silly.
Now that I've tasted happiness i swear that crazy
is worth the exploration in hopes of maybe one day
finding again a glimmer of the smiles that joy
gave me in favor of kisses and laughter, my lovely.
Now and again i look at my childhood books, the fairy
tale pop-ups' that once inspired a realm of fantasy.
I'm ashamed to admit that as i grew i forgot exactly
just what it felt like to know nothing but how to play.
Time took from me more than my youth, it also took away
that part of me that was pure and innocent; my memory
seems to be the culprit for this, in kahuts with misery.
Occasionally a breeze so faint seems to almost completely
ruin me, as her smile i recall and i laugh uncontrollably.
