maybe it's just pride (originally written 8/18/08)

the gaps between your actions.

and the words you speak aloud

show the lack of your intention,

or maybe you're just proud.

but you disappoint the miniature,

who can't wait to wear your shirt,

or watch a movie with you.

or kiss away your hurt.....

her big brown eyes look up to you,

she watches when you go....

she’s soaking up your actions,

so much more than you know.

she puckers her lips

and she closes her eyes....

if only you knew, like i do,

the way that she cries....

quit digging the holes,

that make the distance between....

the things that you say,

and the things that you mean....

the gaps between your actions.

and the words you keep inside,

show the lack of your intention,

or maybe it's your pride....



-originally written on 8/18/08, shortly after JD returned from Iraq. had so many promises and big hopes for sweet T.... awfully big dreams coming from such a small man....
