Life behind the Lens

Just a guy exploring the world with his journal and camera hell bent on documenting it's realities with my photography and poetry.

Great White Buffalo

Fault lies on no one in particular,

it’s just the way the ball rolls sometimes.

We win some, we lose some. 

We never know when they’re coming in our lives or when they’re leaving.

All we know is that when they’re here we HAVE to enjoy them.

People is the topic,

Well really it’s more like loves of your life.

The GREAT WHITE BUFFALO’S

Those people that you never forget,

that you never fully get over.

Love so pure and so strong that ten years down the line you feel exactly the same about them.

It’s that kick yourself in that ass type love,

That leave everything behind type love,

that contemplate life and death type love.

the great white buffalo is born already running for a reason.

it’s so far ahead of anything we ever imagined that we have to chase it.

They say everything worth having is worth fighting for,

but what happens when the fight is what’s causing you to lose it?

How do you go from one extreme to the next?

How do you push when they’re pulling?

What if you’re pulling and they’re pushing?

what happens then?

This is the beast no one really tames,

the beast that’s so mythical and rare that one sees it maybe once in their life time….

IF THEY’RE LUCKY.

I’ve loved and lost many times over…

i’ve lost before i’ve loved

and i’ve never loved at all and still lost.

This is the love that hurts the most though,

the one that alters your very way of being.

Who you are is in question and it’s for the sake of love.

Honestly though, is there a greater reason to change?

"Change happens more often than it stays the same"

and just so you know; sameness is over rated.

opposites attract for a reason,

reason being no on wants to date themselves.

Sure we love ourselves,

we think highly of ourselves,

but I would never go home with myself,

I would never fall in love with myself.

Be honest…. would you?

She always kept herself just  a little out of reach,

present, but not touchable. 

How does one adjust to that?

How does one remove the space

just to be able to hold her?

to be able to kiss her?

show her you love her?

I toss and turn at night…..wondering.

where did I go wrong?

was it in my words,

was it in my actions?

or did the universe just have different plans for us?

I reach out grabbing air,

stand there shedding tears,

letting you go again and again,

hoping that somewhere i’ll find an answer,

somewhere i’ll find your hand

and we’ll walk away together laughing at the path it took us to get here,

saying I Do’s when all I ever consider was I don’ts.
