It takes your breathe away
And It doesn’t give it back.
The world we live in
Is stormy and cold as ice.
We’re all a heartbeat from heaven
We’re all a blink away from the darkness
So love me now
Let me love you like only I could
Sing me a song with your lips of bronze
Play the harp as you go along
Write me a haiku, with few words tell me why you love me
I’ll wait for you on the other side of the river bank
I’ll even lay my bed with roses, hoping you come to me at night
As your kiss parts the curtains on my face, I feel the passion you emit, I feel the thunder dripping down my back, sending shivers every which way
From this reality dream, don’t wake me up!!!
The echoes of the caves
The sound of the waves
As the rain pours
Upon our floors
We wake up from a dream
Into another dream.
As the flowers bloom
We find ourselves in life’s costume
Parading our flaws
Endlessly waiting for the applause.
As the stars twinkle
We start to see our faces wrinkle
But the ones who know their purpose, are truly the lucky ones here
Are you lucky?
I lost my way
I fell hard into the wave and it took me away
I was fully aware of the devices but there was a force I couldn’t explain
A pull, a push, so complicated yet simply plain
I tried and I tried, to understand why this was happening now
The change, the switch; all wrapped up in a bow
This is not how I saw the future in my minds eye
The present is not what the past promised someone tell me why
He’s my poison, I’m his dream come true
I’m smiling but my mind is blue
I pray in the end, from this hole
You’ll lead me home, there where I’d be made whole
Our Life is now
What we breathe
What we feel
Our eyes are open
Our minds keeping the pace with time
Take a moment
Feel the air rushing into your lungs
This is all we have

We’re all empty inside
This truth cannot be denied
We sometimes get what we want but it doesn’t matter much
We try, we buy, we love her so much
But somehow we’re never made whole
Nothing seems to fill our hole
Maybe that’s how we were made
Of this, we all wear the same shade
Many turn to religion, others to things
But only “understanding” can soothe us and this like a bee, stings.
Paralysis of the mind forced them into the wheelchair of life
For themselves they refused to think and so they paid the price
They chose to make the story up as they went along
But this in itself failed from the start.
Many do not “think”, even though they think that they do
They don’t really analyze and create mental solutions first before the action.
Don’t let anyone tell you what’s truth and what’s real
Your mind is your gift and the knowledge you gain and use is your power, so turn the tables now, think for you, think free.

Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired
I wake up, I breathe, I feel sad
Lately I’ve had to make the extra effort
To say something, to say anything
Lately self doubts have filled my sky
Reminding me of what I cannot do
Lately all I see is inadequacy, worry, want
My cloudy thoughts won’t let me see the sun
Lately I’ve been feeling unmotivated
But I fight, I keep it moving, to write another day.
Cradle me on a rocking chair
Comfort me, dry the rain streaming down my face
Build me a boat, paddle me away
Let the currents take me there
As I watch the blue and white on the run
Hold my hands, help me cross this bridge unto the other side of this fear
I almost gave in
Excuses came to deceive my truth
But I know who I am and so I fled
You’re beautiful and I’m not just saying words
All that has happened and is to come is not a mistake
The dreams you had as a child, have they come true?
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do
Don’t let the pressure reduce you to a corner of your own life
Don’t dream small even though your minds eye fails to see farther
Live your life for you and no one else, all other things will fall into place.
