Truth doesn’t lie

The sun has broken another horizon  
 and the light doesn’t play favorites  
 I’ve been up all night, once again
 discerning just what is really best  
 I know I seem different somehow
 maybe because I’m wearing sadness

 And yes, that’s shadows in my eyes  
 that I just can’t seem to hide, anymore   
 It’s why it’s so hard to face you now
 that alone makes me, feel like crying  
 Words just seem so hard to find  
 in moments like this here- this time  
 But words will never change the time
 of doing what has to feel like is right  
 Me- being a storm of loves disaster  
 instead of your, welcome sunshine  
 Girl, I think we really always knew  
 somehow deep on our hearts mind
 And we were just playing along
 filling up empty time in our lives
 I think we’ve both learned hard  
 what love is, and this really isn’t it  
 Mending those pieces of ourselves
 as we slowing relearned, acceptance    
 But- I just have to save my heart  
 from making another broken mess
 Saying goodbye, always hurts  
 but I know, right now it’ll hurt less
 So- I leave you here alone today
 instead of waiting, any longer, girl  
 until you do it, in some… tomorrow

 Somewhere beyond the pall of sleep
 Love is searching frantically for me
 I feel desperate whispers of her heart call  
 For mine, for my full embrace, my soul-  
 But it’s chained here to my humanity  
 In a twisting fate known as reality
 How cruel to treat fragility this way
 My soul is even rent, struggling over if-  
 It’s best to remain or simply to leave  
 My corpse behind to live love carefree
 And connect with her in foreverness
 In divine bliss, far from all of this
 I must wake to avoid the finality  
 For I fear my soul, tis … too duty bound

 It's really astonishing
 How many times  
 Images reflecting on the water  
 Break up long before  
 They ever become real enough
 To be born into our lives
 And like a boat, giving chase 
 We can get tossed about  
 Losing all our sense of direction  
 While simply trying to survive
 And softly land right
 On the shore of a real heart  
 One that understands  
 What love is all about  
 And we can abandon the task
 Of sailing, off to be found
 Getting lost between glimmers  
 Or simply be lead astray and drown  
 In the middle of those false illusion
 That coax our hearts wrong 
 With eon old reverberating lost songs
 Amongst the longing waves
 That rise and shift shapes  
 As for me, I just need to be
 Standing still on solid ground
 And amazed by looking  
 Love straight in the eyes
 And with a big smile  
 See it staring back… at me

 She flowed like a river of grace
 Until that water turned to flames
 Reversing her course of direction  
 Spilling over on my appreciation  
 As the taste of her brackish kiss
 And its burn lingers on my dry lips
 Much like her caustic words still do  
 Here deep within my inflamed heart  
 Oh how bitter a love can become
 Changing sweetness into vinegar  
 Eclipsing a sun- with true darkness
 Replacing warmth with frigidness
 Blind love hides the true motivation
 Of a serpents intention… until bitten

My great

 A scarlet laced amberoid crashes  
 Off the edge of a watery horizon
 Leaving me feel ignored once more  
 So I slip through a drunken night fog
 As it creeps over a sleepless city  
 In my wingless flight of thoughts
 Evading foul weather in my course 
  Homeless and bound to nowhere
 Yet, I’ll sail on whispers galore
 Some be pleads, some are prayers 
 But from time to time- I’ll just perch 
 Long enough to rest and observe  
 All the oddities that surround me  
 They’ll only entertain me for so long  
 Till I get the need again, to move on
 In flight, in search for that one place
My thoughts will nest in … their home

Finger snap

 Clouds churn and again 
 As different colors blend  
 I seem awkward at times
 Like another world away  
 Scary and yet enticing  
 So comfortable, so strange  
 I had no idea the simplicity   
 In things destiny strings  
 For the complexity of life  
 It only takes a smile
 For love to steal your heart
 And it happened while  
 I was staring at your face
 When you turned my way  
 In a moment of time  
 I lost everything I wasn’t
 And fell deeply in love
 With everything … you

Conventional magic

 When forever, slips away  
 In love and everything  
 We’re left, as a broken mess
 And nothing more to believe in  
 My heart has been shattered  
 A time or two, and too often  
 When all that really mattered
 Left me behind, unapologetically  
 Since when does love require  
 Loving self first, above all others  
 And since when does forever  
 Only last a little more than a day
 I find it eerie these days, we only see  
 Love as blame…for broken dreams

 Midnight madness revolutions
 Dancing on sadness in a song  
 Swooping into transformation  
 Someplace I really don’t belong   
 I’m the teardrops you never saw
 I’m the future you let go- of
 I’m the results of my love for you
 I became what you couldn’t use  
 You’re a dream that disappeared  
 Off into some cosmic thin air  
 I really believed you were real
 Until I fell, from even myself  
 Tossing and turning every night  
 All I do to survive you is fight… life

 I want that type of relationship
 That dead grips my hand to jump
 Which inspires me to strip normal  
 And then splits itself wide- open
 Like a fresh ripen Georgia peach  
 So I can dive into it all head first  
 Degust all it’s hidden flavoring  
 Recklessly, down in the nitty gritty
 Where scars earn the legends  
 Or remain a mystery left untold
 And crawling is the only way out
 Each passing year is a lifetime lived  
 Throwing all caution to the wind
 Ignoring every second thought
 Plunging into the very deep of it
 Where real people get all messy
 And languish to get even dirtier  
 Where my only real consequence  
 Came from not having courage  
 To seize my opportunities sooner
 And simply love… unapologetically
