The ShatteredDreams must be funny when they shatter.
Little pieces go bounce bounce
And everybody watching has a laugh.
Articulations of venom-like sound
Poisonous only to the ears of the shattered
Pierce the fabric of the mind
Yet somehow its still funny, it must be
Because everybody watching just laughs.
So dreams must be funny when they shatter.
The shattered, broken on the ground
Picks up its own pieces, and dries them
Then tries to put them back together
Sometimes they just wont fit
A little fragment broke from the piece
And so when theyre together again
Theres a piece thats still missing
Leaving a hole, a little gap
Thatll never be filled again.
In Your HandsI wish there was some other way
Some easier way
Some straightened path to take
Im leaning on the whim of fate
Hoping in mere chance
Waiting like a fool
Waiting in misguided melodrama
But what, pray tell, is there left to do?
I want the moment to come
But by wanting can I, even but a little,
Hurry to me the instant it comes?
I never was one to like not having control
Is it a lesson to me? Ive done all I can
And theres nothing but waiting to be done
Its gone from my hands
Its waiting at your door
The rest is up to you
Now that Im helpless
Its down to you to do the rest
Its in your hands
A Place That I Call HomeFalling into a familiar world
That still doesnt feel like I know it
In the throes of anxiety
Restlessness settles in on me
Cursing myself for a reason
Im not able to understand
Remembering the lessons this land taught me
Staring at the scars it left behind
Wishing I could make the flawed flawless
Wishing that I would have thought just a little more
Wanting to fly again
Hoping that my broken wings will hold me
A pensive frown is broken by a smile
Then the gentle curve is bent back down again
And so the circle lives, eternally unbroken
I wont find rest till its given to me
Whether its served up with pain or pleasure
Is out of my hands, but I just want to find a way
A straight, uncurved and known path
To a place that I call home.
SecretsA smile. An opaque plane.
Depth of contemplation
Lies concealed at contemplation's depth.
Here in this circumspect profundity
Austere disillusionment finds friendship
With persistent hope and sanguinity.
Though well guarded, beyond these walls
Flights of fantasy run their wild course
Impossible becomes its divergent
While reality fades into obscurity.
A Perfect MomentThe perfect moment
Impedes time, defies description
Is divinity on earth
Personified in a single instant
Of both a deep and tangible bond
I saw depth in deep blue
A heart in an ocean of acuity
Sweetness in an honest façade
Perfection in a humanly imperfect,
Yet somehow still flawless gaze
A lack of astuteness would compel
A curious mind to ask about just what
Makes this one so inimitably unique
And I in affection true
Would cast aside reproachful cynicism
With but this reply:
I found all truth in one
And this truth gave life to love.
Remembering YouCringed with pain at thought
Of old wounds, thinly healed skin
Tried to look away
Feared they'd reopen
And bleed afresh and freely
Don't have to try
To push you from my mind
Don't have to fight
The hurt I once had felt
Don't have to run
From painful memories
Grateful for knowing you,
Happy to remember
All the sweet times
The lesson I learned
And the beauty I can find
In remembering you
Save Your TearsSave your tears
Catch them in your hands
Throw them up in joy
And when they deign to fall
From your eyes once more
Let them fall not for sorrow
But stream for ecstasy
For you have no cause to weep
For sorrow, for grief
There is something you have
A treasure, a promise
That will last above all.
My Dearest WishAnyone but who I am
Anyone unashamed to be
Anyone able to smile with meaning
Anyone free to simply be
Anywhere but these four walls
Anywhere but in your sight
Anywhere but where I sit
Anywhere but these tear-filled pools
Something new and fresh
Something whole and untarnished
Something missing from my life
Something I can hold to
Just something, someone, anywhere, anyone
But here, now, me.
O' My Love, I'd Die For You (Deadly Infatuation)I know what you'll say
so with my scarlet thread
I'll stitch these lips.
But o' my love,
I'd die for you,
I'd kill to make you love me,
to know when someone says my name,
you'll smile to yourself
and think "I'm so in love"
I know what would happen,
what would go down,
to lose you is a greater cost than
I can afford.
But O' my love,
I'd die for you,
I'd kill to make you love me,
drink poison from your lips,
be your Juliet.
I know what I'll always be,
in your eyes I'm that silly little girl
with the jaw unhinged,
lips forever flapping in the wind,
whose doe eyes always gazed in adoration.
But o' my love,
my love, my darling man,
as the years go by,
and your picture still rests in my mind,
O' my love,
I'd die for you,
even though you'd never do the same.
For YouYou said I was simple,
easy to understand and comprehend.
You thought I was a unlighted grenade,
unable to burst through my facade.
Could you ever light,
the glow of my hidden jade?
I know I am hard to open up,
a tough shell to break through.
It isn't because I fear,
for what may become clear.
It is just who I am.
Trust me, my dear.
You aren't like the others.
You are understanding,
gentle and kind,
easy to know,
easy to get along with.
You are wise,
from the sun to your demise.
I wish you weren't,
the type that is hard to find.
But that is life,
void of any joyous strife.
But I can rely,
on the head and heart,
to know when,
goodness and truth,
strikes me like a dart.
You are great,
better than the ones,
who gave me the joy,
of my undeserving fate.
How can I sit,
How can I stand,
How can I understand,
our love, our friendship,
when it falls on different lands?
it is just a friendship,
but for me,
I dream of what it could be.
Or is it?
Did I blow your mind,
by showing you my lig
(insert title here)You say you fell for me,
I say I called for you
But now I know,
Neither one is true
God brought us together
Out of love for you and i
And chose for us the other
So that now our hearts will fly
They Met at the Bus StopAt the bus stop on a bright, sunny day,
A girl asks a boy for a bus ticket.
So he gives her one from his wallet.
The bus arrives, ending their day of grey.
At the Bus stop on a cool, cloudy day,
The girl ask the boy for a bus ticket.
Prepared, he takes one out of his pocket,
And together they sit without delay.
At the bus stop on a cold, snowy day,
She asks him for an extra bus ticket.
So from his hand he gives her it,
Then he turns around and walks away.
At the bus stop on the very next day,
Waiting with two tickets, there he stand.
She comes, and says while holding out her hand:
"Walk with me! Just like yesterday, Ok?"
SoulmatesWherever our future may go
I’m always by your side.
All around us dark winds may blow,
But we have time to bide.
My love, I won’t abandon you,
No matter what may come.
If troubles be many or few,
Or even if we’ve none.
I’d fight for you with all my heart,
And do all that I could.
To fight for us, I’ll do my part,
For I know that I should.
After all, we’re soulmates, my dear,
My heart you have beguiled.
My deep desire is now clear,
I want to see your smile.
Three WordsHe who returned my life to light
Now stand within my reach.
There’s no one left we have to fight,
No gaps we have to breach.
He throws himself into my arms,
He sobs into my chest.
He knows that now we won’t be harmed,
These times will be our best.
He gazes up into my eyes
He has something to say.
I think what secret he belies
Will now be clear as day.
He says to me those three small words
Of how he feels for me.
His feelings now free as the birds,
And filling me with glee.
I look at him as he did me,
Our faces oh-so near.
And I too make my feelings free-
“I love you too, my dear.”
I Love You TooHis heart whispers in genuine emotion,
but mine cannot return the devotion.
When I hold his hand there is no affection,
when I kiss his cheek there is no infection
of my hearts tender confection.
There’s a pain in my chest, a guilt.
I’ve become a liar, my web’s built.
With my verbal swords blood is split
as I bury them in his heart, to the hilt
they burrow the jilt.
Yet he doesn’t recognize the pain.
He smiles and laughs, slowly slain.
He isn’t alone, for I suffer a strain,
the inability to actually abstain
so that I might stay sane.
But either way the path is the same.
Both roads are laced in signs of blame,
each speckled with the course of our game,
leading to the destined place of shame,
and neither save him from my claim.
“I love you too.”
UntitledI've spent days walking,
Feeling completely alone.
A simple passing of time,
enough to make me moan.
When the minutes become hours,
And hours become days,
Letting my life slip away,
I'm sick of this place,
But what's a house,
But a haunt,
A toxic existence, leaving me gaunt,
When all I fear,
I fear to tell you my dear,
It's a simple sentence darling,
Why can't I utter it darling?
Is there something wrong with me?
This complex monstrosity,
Eating away inside of me,
A great decay, it anchors me,
The face of an angel.
How beautiful can creation be?
Such divine intervention, it must be!
For you to have been delivered to me,
To silence all my anxieties,
To make me smile,
Maybe stay a while,
In your arms, In your gaze,
Maybe till the end of our days.
There's no more fear, my dear.
How completely foolish was I?
To prolong the joining of you and I,
And now the seraphs of the heavens,
Are raining down good intentions,
And all that's left to mention is this,
No more fear.
Falling For YouCrazy for you when the day ends
Crazy for you when the night descends
Crazy for you when the morning shows
My fire for you forever glows
Aching for you endlessly
Aching, waiting, dauntlessly
Aching for you, it drives me insane
When will this pain of mine wane?
I'm waiting for you, oh when will you see?
I'm waiting for you, you're the one for me
I'm waiting for you, come to me please
My mind's buzzing like a hive of bees
I'll love you, even if you're unaware
I'll love you, and I'll hope that that you share
I'll love you, just turn around
Pick me up from the ground
Where I fell so hard, after falling for you.
Keep in Touch!
