lost in the shuffle
deeper & deeper
into the shadows you fall…
all your madness
don’t fear the inevitable
don’t fear the dark
your secrets and scars
they are who you are…
soul wrenching and beautiful
you’re never alone
your worth is revealed
your essence renewed…
hold those moments closely
as you’re opened up wide…
define us all
stay in the light
so they shine bright…
shed the skin
the baggage you’re in
as pure beauty is discovered
watch your shadow rise
to an inevitable end..
burying you deep
as if it’s something to hide..
Grieving is love that’s exploded inside..
keeping you sane
Just enough to shoulder the blame..
Shadow boxing here
Shadow boxing there
It’s worn you down
leveling you to the ground..
Stop fighting yourself
don’t do it alone
step into new space as you roam..
What is dead may never die
let it tear through the shadows of your sky..
May it thunder through to the silence of your heart..
hear the sounds of freedom as darkness gives way to light..
let the mourning change with the morning bright..
your mind will rewind
to promises of old
reliving stories you’ve been told
as it fills your soul
it will make you whole..
love is a losing game
in ways that make you as it breaks you..
give in to the pain
It fills you with joy
So much to gain..
Shadows of your heart
Hit you in the darkest part
A noose around your neck
that grip will rip
till you feel no more..
trust it – walk through that door..
If I was a sculptor
I’d mold me into you
you into me
We’d be the best we could be
losing while we win to the best moments unknown
getting lost in the game with no name..
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..
Full of life and love in the liveliest of ways
gradually percolating through me until you filled each pore of my heart
filling me with an expectant energy
exuberant animated alive
Your heart is speaking loud
even in your absence
my heart is flying
It can’t be contained
I find you in my waking hours
I feel you in my slumber
All we are is true
from beginning to end
A day like today-once upon a time-defined us
creating such truth that love would never be the same
You were designed to inspire and awaken my soul
With each word we became us
I’ll always think of you as me forever to be
memories alone will get us through
Chasing the dream that I see
My heart is running free
as it should be..
Heart screaming for a second chance..
Willing to make mistakes for the love of you as life goes on
Happy sad somethings
Something is never nothing
let me tell you nothing you want to hear
With every crushing blow
every broken bone I feel you
It renews me as it juts through me
seeing with new eyes
Loving with an undiscovered heart
So shatter me
To bits and pieces..
I learn through the remnants of us
being held together by the strength of your unconditional love
See yourself through my eyes
And know how lucky i am
For meeting you was the end of life as the way I knew it
Breaking away was all she could think about..
She walked out to the water to lose her thoughts..
Her long auburn hair wisped about as the cool wind wrapped its’ gentleness around her..
A smile slowly spreading across her sun kissed cheeks as an unexpected giggle escaped from
She had forgotten how it felt to be carefree
Wondering when she quit feeling the ocean breeze
Drinking in the fresh salt air while she’d romp freely through the waves
She wore it well
When did it all become so
A labor without love..
Time to quell the distaste from her mind
No more mindless anything
Take herself out of it
Let go of the menial
Breathe until she’s filled up
Unbury what has been lost & forgotten
It’s so easy to be the living dead
Her mind reset..
Let’s start anew
Let our hearts race wildly
Alive with life, speaking out loud once again
Stop the closing of her eyes
Shutter open the windows of her heart
All she has is now
What is she waiting for
While she watches herself wither away..
She felt it loud&clear..
Don’t wait till it’s too late
Kidnap the life that ensnares you
Hold yourself hostage
demand living for the ransom
And only then do you set yourself free..
Sing to me
something tells me it’s all you
you light my fire
It all comes back to desire
Your melody floats through the air
It beckons me
My feet are grounded for the first time flying high with you,
overflowing with unspeakable passion
The happiest of tears watering the world
Leaving your beauty every place they touch
such lyrics my ears have never heard
A pitch my heart has never felt
my body swaying to a beat all our own..
Bringing out the best in me
Singing me free…
