Carry On

The mood can seem to shift so fast, We’ve been fighting a harsh and unwinnable past. Now time is running out and grief clouds our overcast mind.But the storm in our head’s nearly over,I’m ready to let go of my rein.Carry on fighting my… Continue Reading “Carry On”

A Thousand Candles

I awake from winters clutches,into the clarity of spring.A thousand candles burn their silent songto a thousand flights on untrained wings. In shallow breath and slow beat of heart,weary of world, and withering toll.Go gently, go forth,Into the warmth of the night,release my fractured… Continue Reading “A Thousand Candles”

Last Night

Last night I said goodbye.Packed up my mind, my heart, your lies.Tomorrow came, in its inevitable way.And the months became memories, soon fading away.

Follow Me

Follow me, I know the way.I know this worn out path through Hell.The secrets we keep live forever here,Secrets we’ll never tell.Ask me all your questions, I’ll know just what to say. Tell me all your fears,let me make everything okay.Depend on me and… Continue Reading “Follow Me”

Acid Rain

Drifting through the currents of my mind,I find myself lost in a sea of thoughts.Through high tides and low,in the shadows of darkness we’d roam.We weathered the storms together,but now this journey takes me alone.I counted the grains of the sands of time,as we… Continue Reading “Acid Rain”

Magic Wand

The beggars they’ve got the best of you,they all want to see you fail,year after year you tread this path,sing your sordid tale. Oh wave your magic wand,my learned vagabond,wish yourself some whisky,chase yourself some tail. But where at the bottom of the bottle,is… Continue Reading “Magic Wand”

Footsteps in the Dark

This is my cry for help,This is my silent scream,This is my plead for mercy,I can’t relive this dream. Hiding in a dark room, afraid of myself.The prison bars on my windows are invisible to the world.Crying under the light of a full moon,… Continue Reading “Footsteps in the Dark”

Many Hats

Tell no one of your storyTell no one of your woesTell no one of your secretsTell no one where you go.I have 100 hats for the 100 people in my head,the ones I don’t remember and the ones I still regret.Together we told our… Continue Reading “Many Hats”
