Beautiful is Forever

Beautiful is forever
That’s why I’ll never forget you
That’s why I cannot see past the endless blue
And the sun seems so out of reach

That’s why I couldn’t stop looking at you
And I’ll never forget the feeling you gave me
The first time we met
Like you’d always been with me

But just because we never kissed
We never hugged
We never made love
Your presence still swarms me and all that I do 

I can let go
But time wont let go of me
When love is beautiful
And beautiful is forever
And each time I look into the ocean and the sun is out, I think of you

The XX "Shelter"

'HWY 17' Dream

It happened so softly
A kiss that has melted into reality
And broken free of dreams

Reached across with mellow music
Pulling us ear to ear
Nothing was forsaken
Just the time that got away

Lovers only meet so briefly
Life becomes a treat so sweetly
When hearts find warmth in lips

It takes a chance and pinch of trust
A dash of fate and cup of lust
These ingredients are a few to find
The next time love is a long long line

Sometimes people meet again
And love can spring anew
These once in a lifetime opportunities
Will happen oh so few

So wear your heart on your sleeve
Leave your armor on the floor
Love is a strange and ruthless
And will take only naked souls

Porcelain Raft "Drifting In & Out"

Black and Blue

You left me black and blue
You left sunshine on my bed when we slept in ‘til noon
You left me warm embraces on cold streets
Tight grips and locked lips on the dance floor
A hand to hold
Relaxing on the beach
Hot tub and lounging by the pool
You left me cozy theater seats combined to make one
A kiss to make it all better
When these lonely nights return
But you left me black and blue
And now that’s all that I think of, when I think of you

DJ Kaos "Love The Night Away" (Tiedye HQ mix)

Your Everything

Don’t wanna be your in-between
I wanna be your everything

Don’t leave me hanging on the phone
Or forget about me on the dance floor
I’m growing every day
Take a spot in this sun and let’s grow old

I’m not gunna play games
Say ‘no’ when I mean ‘yes’
I tell it like it is
I want love in ways that don’t exist

I get lonesome at night
But not like you would think
I can hold my own ground
I just want someone to kiss

We’ll find love in far off places
Hear songs in brand new ways
I wanna listen closely to your body
Speak to you in forms of waves

There’s a place in heaven for lovers
Love is the wings
A fairy tale for dreamers
Angels are just lovers in former lives

Wade Robson (Choreographer) / Ben Susak & Pam Chu (Dancers) / Song: John Mayer "Burning Room"

Billy Bell (Choreographer & Dancer) / Song: The Cinematic Orchestra "To Build A Home"


Steps without you seem so loud
Because I miss your voice
Your whisper in the crowd

Tell me what you did today
What went through your mind
Mine was lost and fruitless
Wishing I had made a promise, to keep you mine

Friendly Fires "Hawaiian Air"

Arcade Fire "We Used To Wait"

I Used To Live

I used to live
I used to kiss the midnight hours
From rolled down windows of aimless cars
Breathe the air of danger
And laugh at new acquaintances’ jokes
Tackle innocent nights with troubled intentions
Climb fences to trespass on private property
Hide in bushes from cops shining lights
Dance on cars in parking lots and sing to karaoke in Mexican and Russian restaurants and bars
I used to embrace the night and tell it all my secrets
And it would keep them. With promises that it would tell me its too.

Poutin' Dry Lips

I’m trying not to cry
But baby you got me poutin’
Poutin' dry lips, dry eyes
Because of you

How does it feel to take this control
To have me riding your roller coaster
Begging for more
And you slow it all down

These eyes stay dry
My body a wreck
Confused what to do
These pouting lips thirst for your havoc

All These Nights Alone

All these nights alone
I’ve wanted and wanted
Something more
Something different
To keep me warm

All I want is you
To balance out the bed
To wrestle in the sheets
To touch your skin and braise your muscles
Wrap my arms around your body and call you mine

Wont need to use my eyes
Wont need to use my voice
Just reach across and feel you near
Know nothing’s in between
Know everything is here

About Woe

Words are our outright melody and no one else is going to play the songs you feel but yourself. Let me be more esoteric....just kidding. You may ask when reading my poetry, why do I use metaphors so often? After thinking that through, I honestly don't know why. My guess would be that language, though freeing, can also be restrictive. Especially in terms of expressing ourselves in attempt to understand ourselves. I, personally, get stuck in gears sometimes and I like to expand and break through traditional understanding of the concept at hand. I like to read what I'm feeling in different forms, and see if the language can lossen up more.
