You take no fool
Yet somehow you rule..
You bring me to my knees..
so stealth with a wealth of harm in your outstretched arm..
ever so quietly
you unleash your wrath of rage devouring me up
until I can no longer rattle free this cage..
Blanketed by a stranger that has taken over my insides
as if you own me..
I won’t stay down
I’m up again
the battle is on
I won’t give in to the bile running through my skin..
You can touch me but you’ll never take my soul, my heart or my thoughts..
I’ll fight and fight
I won’t finish till I win it..
For I belong
Hope lives on
can be deadly and all consuming
The power we give to thoughts..
The ones that rule our mind
The ones we ought to naught..
and all we leave behind..
With all its’ lost time..
It is not always as it seems..
The longer you dwell on what you can’t foretell
The hotter the burn from your own hell
crushed beneath it all
if you keep pushing
the harder you will fall..
set loose those thoughts that threaten to own you
Wearing you out
until you don’t know you..
You are more than the sum of your thoughts..
Keeping it safely between the lines
you remain blind..
The walls of your mind so unkind..
shouting, yelling – such a grind
you’re heavy, you’re weary
shaking on unstable ground..
no more running
no more hiding
No more sliding into despair..
Your eyes show the strength of how much you care..
break down the walls
open those eyes – let me inside
What did I learn through your walk of pain..
to love us new all over again..
To love us through & through
I’ll never quit growing,
I’ll never quit showing
how much more I have to pour into your heart..
And there I’ll remain, until you’re ready to start..
You take from me
Keep shaking me
raking me through the coals
I mope –
we reap what we sow..
It don’t matter to the world
It will keep spinning
Time will keep winning
No matter that you’ve changed
I may be delicate & sweet in all that you see..
But don’t misconstrue what you think you know
I will shine again
I will find my sun
I will find my feet and learn to run..
Homesick for a home that doesn’t exist anymore..
I wonder as I wander
what I’m looking for..
putting my hands in
I dig deep
As I seek the mystery from the other side..
bare my soul,
dim my light,
expose my darkness,
unravel my madness
and restore my hopes..
I live in there
They make me
they break me
It also sets me free..
no crying over things that aren’t or weren’t
Live life to its’ fullest..
There will always be X
The great unknown
and it may always keep me seeking for my home
but I will thrive as i roam..
Words may escape us
certainty may evade us..
how did I miss it..
The empty smile
slipping – we lost our footing
the ground shook beneath us
the world caved in
eclipsing our sun..
tears may fall with the slipping
Bones may be weary
but my heart remains full..
it trembles with the unsteadiness
as it roars with the love of you
all we need is the beating of our hearts to restart..
no more tears, no more fears..
As long I’m silently doing it all beside you..
walk with me
I will never forget what it is like to be lost and free..
I will always know what it is like to be found and bound..
we went round & round
until my sounds were silenced
You never understood
My heart was your design
the markings of you permanent..
The ink has dried
yet on & on we go..
even though our song is no longer sung
you are all I know..
Who could blame me
I didn’t want just the flame
I wanted my turn to feel the burn and to
You collect the debts of my soul
You paint the pictures in my mind
You paint the pictures in my heart
You will follow me in my new start
Blood stained by the likes of you..
