I know a girl. She likes the rain. 

She’s watching life

From inside trains…

City View

City lights adorn us.
Overwhelmed by the beauty before us..
This urban life is too glorious,
I love your city view.

Sirens, strange ones, and street art..
Mischief at the local park,
But this city will always be my heart.
Just take in that city view.

Sweet city, my friend when I’m alone,
To some, your streets their only home..
You shine your light on everyone.
Such a perfect city view.

Be Your Own Audience

Four artistic ways to relieve stress at home or on the road.

augiezack

Sometimes life just sucks. And we can’t always explain the feelings we have. Other times, life just hits us like a giant red rubber ball from the early 2000s.

You.

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 8.23.50 AM

In a chaotic world of different minds,
mine is drawn to you.
In a crowded place of people all kinds,
all I can see is you.

Like an explorer who keeps his valuable finds,
an artist who reveres a precious design,
as long as the sun continues to shine,
I’m continually in awe of you.

I’m at ease when our thoughts align,
rareness is what you exude,
your presence is real and benign
and all I can see is you.

I continue to lose track of time,
since our two worlds have combined,
our love is the wildest one could ever find,
and all I want is you.
