we’re a sea of stars
we’re echoes in jars
we’re the sound the earth makes
we’re the merging, the synergy
we’re you and me
we’re all we choose to be
i won’t fade away
will you fade away?
The one I love is returning home
His suffering has come to an end
But mine has just begun
I’m trying to lock the pain away, to ignore this wound that may never heal
My mind is pale, I’m swimming in denial
I’m aching for answers from god’s real and not
I’m wondering why my life has to be this way
What will I do without my bestfriend?
The one that loves me deep?
I don’t know
I really don’t know.
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
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.
