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..
Blessed it be the mystery of love..
not to be solved -broken down or tamed..
Love has no name – it beats to its’ own game..
I lived for this endless wonder
Thrived in its’ unspeakable beauty
grew by the sounds of love
until I never knew this kind of blue that it possessed..
my world went silent
sharpest quiet cut me down until
my ears could no longer hear
My heart could no longer bear..
Yet I’ll always care for this lovely game of love that causes such despair..
Cursed it be the mystery of love..
Jealous of the night that wraps you in its’ intoxicating moments..
The moon that rocks you tender as you slumber..
envious of the sun that shakes you gently with its’ morning hello..
Oh that you could see my light and how it revolves around you
That my heart was still the beacon that lit you up..
You closed your eyes and it went black..
So I’ll grieve and
My heart will bleed
Yet I’m removing the shackles that bind me
I’ve done my time..
I won’t sulk anymore
Nor dwell on the memories
I’ve kissed them goodbye
No – I will not steep in sadness or misery like a bitter tea..
I choose to keep moving and let my heart be as free as the sea..
a part of your soul will always keep me whole..
a collection of choices..
Do they make you
masquerade slipping away
The loose ends fall nicely at my feet
You believe I can wrap it up nice and neat..
I’m magical, incredible such a treat..
You’re aren’t in love with me you see..
You’re in love with you and
How you feel when I make you real..
Your hurts have been harsh
They hit you like steel
I’m a source of energy
bringing you back to life
helping you let go of strife..
Let me pull back the shades
revealing all the charades..
I know you’re weakness
It’s freedom in the madness
The more mad, the more free.. revel in who you choose to be..
it’s a new dawn
A new day
A new you..
those ears.. eager to hear what they wish to believe
They listen with hunger and zest
wishing to settle all this unrest
Pour it all out – little by little
gleaning it up until You get your fill
and it becomes the absolute real even as it sits you still..
One lie turns into many and the truth gets lost until a lie is all that’s left
at such a cost – it’s crushing heavy in your chest..
It will leave you walking on your knees as you grieve what you can’t perceive..
Stand strong – don’t give in to fit where you don’t belong..
Comfort is a tough thing to give away
Don’t fear what you don’t know
Allow yourself to grow
The end game is worth the fall..
Why the inferno raging within..
you’re lost in the haze
Hidden in the blaze
It’s not in the look you create
Nor in the steps you make
Nor in the pretenses you strive to fake
Let the smoke choke out who you aren’t..
Don’t forget who you are..
each breath taken with care, purpose, passion..
deeply imbedded within
taste the goodness – feel the greatness –
live the fullness of life..
Give to yourself what you give to me
Such a beautiful human that needs to be free..
Wonderful beautiful you
unleash yourself from the games alight in your mind-
free from the lies being told
and leave behind the stories waiting to unfold..
Brush me into your world..
Swirl us into a canopy of love
The unspeakable beautiful wonder of it all
Leaves the world breathless as they see it, feel it
wanting more of what dreams are made of..
You aren’t just something
You are everything
opening me up to a whole new world
enlightening my vision
Opening my eyes
Your love pouring life into me
Each stroke of you causing my heart to beat fully for the first time
What a portrait you’ve painted
Leaving my soul with your indelible mark of beauty
