An old man from Texas who writes about life, as it is, as it should be, and as it rarely is.

A Solid Foundation Of Lies
We built on a solid foundation of lies-
And then it all crumbled, much to our surprise.
I know that I loved you, no doubt you loved me-
But the dreams we were building just never could be.
Like moths to a flame we were drawn by desire-
Like Icaurus' wings we were doomed by the fire.
Regretting the day which first greeted our birth-
In shock and dismay we came crashing to earth.
Our love like the gossamer clouds in the sky-
Brought us such joy, then it caused us to cry...
We stared at the ashes with tears in our eyes...
Doomed by a solid foundation of lies.
