Leaving

This Time Tomorrow

This Time Tomorrow

 

Funny what life can do to you

 

Make you doubt what’s true

 

Why I am even here

 

Monday I will catch a train

 

When I do, I won’t feel the pain

 

No one will see me off

 

By this time tomorrow

 

No more pain or sorrow

 

It will all be gone

 

What I truly held dear

 

Has already gone from here

 

What’s one more in the scheme of things?

 

There’s no need to worry about me

 

I’m just hurrying what is meant to be

 

Just cutting out the middle man

 

It is the least that I could do

 

Just making things easier for you

 

How else will you see my love is real?

30 Minutes Late

Shiny headlights pulling into the complex garage
I look and pray that they belong to you
That you turned around and have realized your foolish conventional craze.
Bright lights emerging, heart skips with the wish of a Volvo.
One'd think I’d be wiser, oh one'd be fooled.
Return, hope, forgiveness exists only in my dreams
Faith, compassion, they're dead to you it seems.

 

Feet march up the door steps and 3 flights incite a quick look up
To see a blurry digits from the inside of a desperate, beaten heart.
Why did you leave, I told you I am true
I know of your fallacies and I have mine too.

 

This silence ought to be broken
There’s a blaring to be drowned
I can hear it in our voices
In our minds it will be found.

Gone

Folder: 
My Love

Gone today

Was here before

What was my joy

Walked out the door

All that I lived

Now is gone

All is lost

What once was won

 

Nothing left

There’s nothing more

All my dreams

Crashed on the floor

My hopes are shattered

My vision’s battered

Forsaken, bereft

There’s nothing left

Freedom

Folder: 
Love

Flying free
Away from here
My love branded me
Now nothing to fear
Nothing to lose
Everything's gone
All I have left
Is a new song

Now I'm free to fly
Away from here
No hold over me
Not one tear
My body is burned
By death of passion
Now all alone
Demise my ration
My ashes will fly
On the wings of the breeze
And you'll remember my love
In the whispers of the trees
For though I am free
I'm not leaving, hear?
And the remembrance of me
Will haunt you my dear

This freedom...; is it free?
Or is it just my apathy
Chilling the coals that once burned
Before your ice did make them turn
Now ashes are all thats left of my love
Look down on me good God above!
See the pain that's slit open my veins
See all the tears that are hidden in rains
See how my dreams were dashed on what's real
See how loving of death I now feel
And all the while I can see her grinning
This I know: Death is just the beginning
So again I ask, Is freedom free
Or is it just a wish for me?

Who knew I could make ashes from cinders?
Who knew that Snow could be made of heat?
Who knew that always doesn't mean forever?
Who knew that my loss could make me complete?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a remake of "Free" for ashes_twisted, and is open to change. Enjoy

Love

Flying free
Away from here
My love burned me
Now nothing to fear
Nothing to lose
Everything's gone
All I have left
Are the words of a song

Free to fly
Away from here
Nothing to hold me
Not one tear
My ashes will fly
On the wings of the breeze
And you'll hear my love
In the whispers of the trees

Who knew I could make ashes from cinders?
Who knew that Snow could be made of heat?
Who knew that love doesn't last forever?
Who knew that loss could make me complete?

Scared

Folder: 
My Love

I love you...
And I don't know what to say to you
I'm scared
I don't know what you think of me
I'm afraid of putting myself out there
To be rejected again
I may be Superman on the outside
But inside?
I'm afraid of letting you down
Of not being there for you
Of not being enough for you
Of leaving you to fight your own battles
I know you're capable
But I love fighting them with you
Of supporting you
Of loving you
And I don't know...
Maybe I feel inadequate
Like you're worth so much more than I am
I think you are
I've messed up so many times before
I don't know how to act around you
But until you tell me
I'll continue to be brave
I won't be afraid of fighting for you
I think you're worth it
I'll step out
Take a leap of faith
Because I don't want to lose you
To lose my greatest treasure and my best friend
To the unknown.
I hope you know this already
But if not here it is:
Honestly and truly,
I Love You.

What I'm Gonna Miss

Folder: 
Songs

You know darlin’ I have to go
But I’ll be back for you, you know
I had a call, and gave an answer
The wait is eating me like cancer
I hate to leave you, but I must go
So right now I’m gonna show
Just how much you mean to me
When I leave, It’s gonna be:

What I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

It’s time to go, I’m leaving now
And I just don’t know how
I’m gonna live without you
Can’t stop thinking about you
But you know, when I return
This job, well, It can burn
I’ll hold you in my arms
Abandon all life’s charms

Cause what I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

Baby here I am right now
And you just won’t believe how
Thinking about you has kept me alive
Sittin’ on the frontlines, about to dive
Enemies surrounding me on every line
And I’m just waiting, biding my time
Wishing I were home, just kissing you
But instead I’m fighting here missing you

What I really miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to be here like this
But that’s what I miss

My last day, can’t wait to find
The girl of my dreams, always on my mind
Fought a war, and saved her from it
Hardest part was to overcome it
Driving down the driveway
You come running my way
Finally hold you, kiss you now
Looking back I don’t know how

All the things that I missed
The love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I love to see you like this
Now there’s nothing more that I'm gonna miss

One of my attempts at a country song.... comment, rate, and enjoy

You're the One

Folder: 
My Love

She’s the only one
To me, a beautiful thing.
Music is how she speaks
And how sweetly does she sing!
All throughout the day,
In my ear her voice will ring
All I want to do,
Is accompany her while she sings.

But soon she will go home
To a place that sounds like Hell
I want to comfort her
But I never can really tell
If she can feel how I feel
Her fears I wish to quell
But all I can do right now
Is listen to the bell.

I would give you my wings
So that you can fly away
But we’re all like fallen angels
And so here we must stay
But I can tell you now
That there can come a day
If you take me as your own
Then we could run away

Far, far away
No troubles can see us there
And possibly could escape
Fear and Death’s ghastly stare
As to where we’ll go,
You already know where
But until then
We’ll just have to dream that we’re there.

Although we are slaves to time
The moment’s coming soon
Just like the next note
In a well-remembered tune
If you should come to love me
And my return will come soon
Then we can disappear;
And restart like the new moon.

Leaving

I was sad to watch you leave,
Every breath was hard to breathe,
As tears rolled down my saddened cheeks.
As I left the sky darkened,
Only adding to my sorrow.
But a ray of light pierced the shadows,
Helping me believe it was not eternal.
I know I can't turn back time,
But one day everything will be alright,
No matter how dark or sad I may seem,
Fate always seems to workout for me.
