Second Sight

She could see into the future and
knew what to expect
So when he walked out the door she didn’t
even give a shit
She anticipated he’d be leaving soon
so there were no tears or words
Matter of fact she had his bags already packed
greeted him at the door and gave him
All his shit back
the confused expression on his face had
Her laughing
he didn’t know she possessed this ability 
She could see past his bullshit 
so why didn’t she act sooner
There’s a time for everything and his time had come
looking into the future she knew she’d be strong
Envisioned her life a free dove flying above
and for him she saw his destruction
The next woman he tried to play
turned around and fed him his own retribution

In the Moment

In the moment your life-cycle changes
Embrace a new future
Instead settled for the stale past
The answers you come up with
Are not the ones you are willing
To accept
Circumstances leave no room
For guess work
In the moment time can’t be taken back
For an instant clarity is a diamond
Sparkling in the sun
Examine it closer and see it’s
Filled with inclusions
Blemishes that aren’t seen with the
Naked eye become visible in the dark
In the moment what looked good in the mirror
Evil fore shadows behind soulless eyes
Lips speak deceit buried deeply in the heart
Lure you in and trap your spirit
Still it was in the moment
That has brought you to this place
