“Runaway Girl”*

Come back my girl, don’t run away.

You’re taking my heart with you,

I’ll be left astray…

That smile, those eyes,

Forever burned into my mind.

Please return to me, be kind and rewind.

I still need you, now more than ever,

You thought you were clever

That day when you released the lever.

Pulled the world from under my feet,

Unlike you, I didn’t run…

Instead I accepted the taste of bitter defeat.

“Cosmic Synergy”

You had me at “Hello”.

At first I was hesitant.

Wasn’t sure if you were real or not.

But, I decided to go with my guts,

My Capricorn instincts.

I could tell you were being sincere,

And your form and way of expressing yourself

Really caught my attention.

You being beautiful was a plus,

But your personality radiates and shines like the sun.

Even though we’ve only known each other

For such a short while,

It feels like I’ve known you for a long time.

Suddenly, I am alive again after walking dead for years.

You have given me hope, and something to look forward to.

I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

Together we can conquer the world!

It seems that the stars have aligned to guide us on our journey…

Bare witness to this cosmic synergy.

“An Offer To The Sun God”

The sun was setting.

Bright orange was the sky.

Murky gold were the clouds.

Two men face to face.

Both stood atop the tallest pyramid in all of Anahuac.

One of them was the chief of the Aztec tribes.

The other one was a distinguished conquistador commander.

Each held their ground.

A standoff –

“Fuck this guy, who the fuck does he think he is?

Coming here to my land and trying to take my people away?

Bringing disease with their nasty asses!!”

These were the thoughts in the chief’s head.

“Indigenous native scum!

How dare he oppose our religious beliefs!

My God shall smite him and his people!

That bastard will learn to kneel before me!!”

These were the thoughts in the conquistadors head.

A standoff no more as the chief suddenly decapitated the conquistadors head clean off.

Well, not so clean, it was actually really messy.

The Aztec chief just stood there and raised the head as an offering to the Sun God.

And the Sun God seemed pleased, for soon after there was a loud hush over the city.

Purple lightning lit up the sky and then the loud voices of the nation were heard again.

One small victory in the impending war that would soon be on its way…

“God Infinite”

As I sit underneath the stars,

I can’t believe that

They are already sending people to Mars.

Which planet does God live on?

Does anyone know?

Are all the planets filled with life

Or are they just there for show?

Questions upon questions,

And the answers are infinite.

But to one day meet other lifeforms,

Fuck yeah I’m down, hell yeah I’m into it!

Would they be aliens?

Or would we be the ones?

Would they greet us with hugs

Or an explicit amount of guns?

Peace is just a dream

Or maybe just a thought?

Are we truly alone out here?

Nah, I’m thinking that probably not.
