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.
(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
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
LuckNot a thing will ever stop me
From loving you this way.
Right by your side I’ll always be,
No matter what they say.
Such is the love I feel for you,
Words cannot describe it.
People like us, there are so few,
Yet we’re a perfect fit.
Were we lucky that fateful day
That the two of us met?
Would we have met some other way-
Would that have happened yet?
If it was luck or entwined fates,
It matters not to me.
What does is we don’t have to wait
For our true love to be.
For now that we have each other
And have fallen in love,
We’re safe in loves joyous cover,
And fly free as if doves.
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!
