Light that Time Forgottake me back to the time
buried by so many years
when laughter grew on trees
and the sun hid all our fears.
peel back the layers
of the scars so thickly made
through red to pink to white and on
to skin untouched by hate.
dig our friends up from the ground
from all the way back then
to live and breathe the long dead air
to walk the earth again.
undo each night we spent alone
on pills and left to rot
give me joy that's long been gone,
the light that time forgot
Flowers in Your Smilethere are stars in your eyes,
they shine unrealized
in the darkness of the day
and the gentle hum of night.
there are oceans in your soul,
they drift and churn unknown
with nobody to sail
through your never ending storm.
there are flowers in your smile,
reaching up into the sky
to touch the sun and bring the light
for you and I to share.
Sleepless Nightsit starts with a cry
to the stars in the sky
to be thrown down and die
and to never say goodbye.
it sounds like a scream
in the darkness and unseen
just running to be freed
from this never ending dream.
it's another sleepless night
with no stars in the sky
and we break down and cry
slowly fading in the night.
Leave Youwe stayed up all night every night,
counting the distant stars in the sky.
we held each other and cried just to cry
and we'd never ever say goodbye.
I promised that I'd never leave you,
you promised to stay through bad and good.
we said forever like it was that simple,
like we could never be so fickle.
but the night did come that I said goodbye,
and I wouldn't be back, I meant it this time.
you cried so hard; how could we just end?
and I tried to run, but not to offend.
I left behind my entire life
to be with you and please your needs.
but now that it's gone and we're both free,
I wish that last summer you'd never met me.
Juliathe night was dark
but the lights were bright.
she wore her dress
and the rarest of smiles.
together they'd dance,
but for him it would end
on the porch outside,
he would love and she'd pretend.
but he had to get mad,
everybody but her knew
he had to break her down again
or she would be untrue.
but she ran from his fists
from the lights and to the night,
and swore to not return to him
for as long as she would cry.
but in the morning he came back
with some flowers and a smile,
and won her heart with gentle words
like he did every time.
The Mirrorat night that mirror is a nightmare,
with shifting shapes on a tired face,
a train wreck of mismatched feelings
cutting deep and always bleeding.
the mirror has never tried to hide
the darkness deep inside my eyes.
a piece of me burned up my heart
a piece of me tears love apart.
I lost my way and woke up in hell
and, all alone, turned against myself.
I fought every battle without a feeling,
without knowing I'd never be winning.
in the midst of the war,
I looked and saw the mirror,
and somehow it was just me,
hitting nothing but thin air.
Floating Daisiesdaisies float
like my heart on a breeze
in the cool pond waters
at the base of the shore.
and though their petals drown,
yours shine on through the night,
like every bright star
in the darkness of the sky.
daisies stand tall
through the late heat of summer,
on a lawn in the garden
barely swaying in the wind.
but their stalks can be crushed,
not just bent, though they try,
while you can withstand anything,
you can make it, you can fly.
daisies grow in bunches
on the side of every road,
and people simply pass them by
like the dirt they stand above.
the same for you I can not say,
you're the only you that I can see.
you can not be replaced,
like a daisy in the dirt,
you're the only one for me
and with me you'll be free.
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.
A Day Upon a Dayone day one day far away
someday someday soon
you might find a ray
a person to make you croon
over all the little things
and they make you smile
every time your phone rings
and you promise to overcome all trials
because they are the only one who you love
Out Of My LeagueMost people I saw are the same
Some became close and true
Few are special; and important
But only one I put my life into
This person is as what I’m in right now
We’re still young at heart
Her looks is the same like the moon with a gown
Beautiful but it is far
If only I hold the world
Maybe she’ll look at me and talk back
If only she knows I love her
Maybe what I give won’t lack
I can’t give her more
What I can only give is love
But I think it won’t be enough
For a girl I can’t open her door
I put my hopes high
I didn't put the risk behind
My chance of getting her is steep
A girl who is out of my league
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.”
Our Livesour lives were pointless, filled with mistakes;
we never learned to forgive and forget.
each failure cut deep, our laughter was fake,
as fake as the colors in a summer sun set.
and though we both tried, too hard it would seem,
for the length of our lives to now and beyond,
to die and fall silent unknown and unseen,
I will always forever be singing our song.
there's something about the way your eyes shine
that catches my soul in your lonely smile.
we'll always remember every night that we cried,
and the story behind every scar in the sky.
but when it comes to you I'll do whatever it takes
to catch you and save you before it's too late.
Keep in Touch!
