Click, the clock is moving
Hit the lights, I want to sleep
Click, I hear the time as it flies by
Give me mercy, just stop
Click, eyes move back and forth
My mind is running in circles
Click, click, I fear my time is near
The faster I write the faster it fades
Click, I can see past that
People pass unnoticingly
Click, here he comes
He haunts, the reaper of the damned
Click, my brothers stand beside me
Not knowing who of us will make it
Click, click, it’s coming fast
We hurry and we strain
Click, is there hope for me yet?
I pump the last bit of blood
Click, my light is flickering
Click, click, click…..
Keep your head up sunshine
Just to know this day is still alive
Let me hold your hand, as it’ll help to pass the time
I’ll turn off al our clocks, and just keep you in my mind
One less thing to worry, one less thing to hide
Keep your eyes dry darling
We’ll sit and talk about the tides
How back and forth they seem
And you knowI’ll hold tight listening
While peering in your pale blue eyes
Keep me in your heart honey
As you’ll always hold a place in mine
Close your eyes, I’ll help you see
Just how beautiful you are to me
Keep talking to me sugar
I’ll always be right here to listen
I want to know you like my favorite book
Let me hear today your story, let me see you grin
Keep me warm tonight dear
I’ll hold you ‘till the sun comes up
Please don’t fret, I’m just right here
Look up and just keep it up
I say…. I say… Fuck You Man!
Fuck the establishment
Fuck the hopes and dreams of a young boy longing for his dad to call
Fuck whatever the man told you to say
Fuck that feeling that makes you hate every fiber of your own being
Fuck the thoughts that come at night when I can’t sleep
Fuck the fact that I am so afraid to let people like me
Fuck the fact I have lost so many people I miss cold heartedly each and every day
Fuck the feeling in my gut
Fuck the drugs and all the so-called friends
Fuck me man…..
Red like the leaves of fall
Fall like a kid on the bus
A bus that leaves behind any hope and any dream to be on time
Time, what we all cherish
What will we do when the water has all gone?
More of life
More of time
More of water and light
Water is blue
Blue like the sky
Blue like her eyes
Blue in daylight
And dark blue at night
At night we see the water rise.
While the sun goes down to see her shine.
She shines for him.
Him because he is the lone wolf of a pack once lost
Lost like the flying beast that caused such commotion in its daze.
What I’d give to just wrap my arms around you, to just for a minute hold you and forget everything else. Feeling your heartbeat next to mine, closing my eyes knowing you are there. The smell of your hair taking me away from anything and everything, your essence filling me completely. I kiss you. The moon falls out of the sky. As thunder rolls and bolts of lightning strike above. I fall.
In the simplest of terms,
In each and every way,
Away from worries and concerns.
I’ll take your hand if I may.
I’m hooked at the end of your string.
Pulling back the corners of my mouth,
Back and forth like a broken swing.
Attracting me as north to south.
Pacing in my head driving me mad
The theiving felons screaming,
“I want you so bad!”
Thoughtful of shared dreaming.
I send out this wavelength,
As a declaration of my weakness.
To you that gives me strength,
To look past all my bleakness.
I want you.
Should I feel the color of your hair,
See your heartfelt cries,
Smell the fire in your glare,
Taste all your goodbyes?
Should I hold back my every urge,
Take back my every word,
Ask lightning not to surge;
Tie down the wings of every bird?
Should I look away when I see you,
Deny all these strange things I feel,
Paint the sky a midnight blue,
Close my lips and form a seal?
Should I hide behind this social wall,
As I watch myself grow weak,
Help the tyrant to stay tall?
And behind his cape ill peak.
Searching for my self through the crowd.
Cool face of the river
Asked me for a kiss.
Somethings are not what they appear
Somethings are hidden
Those things we fear
We fear what we don’t know
We fear all sudden change
We feel that we must go
Away from those we think as strange
Yet there is no need for fear
There is need for an embrace
There is no harm from just a tear
A single tear rolls down your face
Sadness in your eyes
Rolling down your cheek
From all the agony and lies
With which you hide, I seek
You hide behind your smile
Still I see the lies
These lies they are so vile
They make for cloudy eyes
Time passes ever so slowly
It almost seems to stop
I sit here so lone and lowly
Suddenly there is a drop
A sudden drop in atmosphere
As we leave this life
No longer living in fear
We move into the afterlife
“Sweet dreams are made of this”
For this, this is true bliss
I have seen the tree of life
She is loving, she is grand
Her thorns though soft cut like a knife
She blinds all those who take her hand
The tree of life she is astounding
Her leaves a peachy golden soft
Her fragrance spreads to her surroundings
She takes your life so much aloft
The tree of life she’s unforgiving
She doesn’t know just how to stop
She fears what lies beneath her top
A darkness not meant for the living
The tree of life does not need saving
She knows her leaves are falling
And for each I hear her calling
So lonely in her raving
I come alone to see her cry
Each tear leaving her dry
So I lay beside her in this cage
Watching the earth beneath us age
I have seen the tree of life
The tree of life looked right through me.
