I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I welcome it in
desperate for rest
I run till i fall in search of it all..
The charm of the quiet
I’m under its’ spell
I scream till I yell
hungry for anyone to look at me and tell..
I may be alone
as my grasp gives way to the icy fingers on their own
no one there to warm my hand..
It’s ok – I understand..
The only way outward is inward
Don’t think me coward
for there isn’t a lie I’d rather know than the truth..
stretched so tight I no longer feel..
the impenetrable wall
The divide growing
as our hearts are sowing new paths..
Opposition to one another
Fighting for space in the canvas of your heart..
Until I say no more
no more to saying yes
Freeing myself to choose..
Only when I’m free
Can i keep the monsters at bay
The ones I can’t see that choke the air out of me..
I knew this day might come
though I knew you were my truth..
there’s no comfort in waiting for the last beat of our hearts
Let it die before that starts..
I need you to look out and see
you will always be a part of me..
I want to drink the air
Live in the sunset
taste the water
emerge from it new
washed clean from all I’ve seen..
layer after layer I shed my skin
Looking for the freedom of where to begin
Only to find the same eyes pulling me back again..
What does it matter that I shed the outside gone-
my insides whirl round and round owning me strong..
I could choose to give in to all of my sins
Or reach out my hand to the one I know so well –
The best of me..
There you are standing tall
I exist because you chose to fall
Thank you for loving me through it all
our melody hit every note
fine tuning its’ way for the perfect pitch that became you & I..
you sing through me
Vibrating my heart strings
until they hum a love so sweet
I hear it in my heartbeat
traipsing through my veins
wafting throughout my being
humming your way to my heart until it became our home
our love is like a soldier
Loyal to us – it rights all wrongs
I learned a love song
my heart will never be empty
for your melody always plays softly throughout me..
It mattered not..
the essence of you and i weaved a soul of love unknown..
the joy boundless
sealing us tight..
It won’t matter what is written or the
words spoken out loud but never given..
we lived it freely
We lived it real
until time stood still..
I couldn’t stay, I can’t pretend
My heart went silent..
I lost my way when I couldn’t feel the beating of my mainstay..
So now I lay me down to sleep
for my soul needs yours in order to keep..
I hope they know
I pray they see
Though life’s unfair
we’ll find our way in every sphere..
