Chance

Verse 1:
You can cast your worries on me, babe.

'Cause it's safer in your arms.

This place is our safe haven.

Where do we go from here? 

 

Chorus:

You held the world

At your fingertips.

Yet, I cannot seem

To let you go so easily.

 

Verse 2:

I won't care

As long as

You are here with me.

I smile at the

Thought of us.

 

Bridge:

Let's take this chance

And make it our's.

'Cause you're mine to keep

And I: your's to keep.

 

Last-Chorus:

Let's start from here

Lose the past.

Change our minds.

Take a chance on us.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A song I wrote about my "dream guy" and I trying to take a chance on each other since our bond is deep/strong and cannot be: 1) broken, 2) ignored, and 3) denied.

Odd Man Out

Sometimes, I realize how different I am.

 

A shape that doesn't fit into any one particular place

 

Odd man out

 

When I look back on how versatile I've always been

Lots of different cliques, not a singular type of friend

 

Expending everything I have to be someone people want to talk to

 

But for what?

 

What am I searching for?

 

 

I can identify so many beautiful things that I have

In real life

 

A short few people who actually love me, for me

 

When I need them, they come through

 

In depth long conversation

 

Or just a simple cup of coffee because they're near

 

These are tried and true relationships

 

 

Sometimes I realize how different I am.

 

The tallest tree in the forest, towering above those who directly surround her

 

Or the tiniest grain of sand, undifferentiated, lost in an endless desert

So much the same, but uniquely separate in perspective

Nothing better, nothing worse

Just different...

 

If I had the choice to be somene else, in another place, another position

I wouldn't think twice before turning it down

I realize this isolation is an opportunity to turn myself around

I was once lost, and once again I will be found

I know I won't find myself in the struggle of another

So, I'll stop attempting to drown myself in the company of others

The silence, the absence, the willingness to be with me

The effort, The choice, The solace

It's become my sole necessity

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm in a weird space within right now.

Trying to find the strength to go radio silent and let the true friendships surface.

Trying to find a true friendship with myself, and rebuild my connection to my spirit.

Distance and space are hard to do when you feel like you'll be missing out on others.

But, it's time.

Just remember you're not alone

I know how you feel

My heart was once stone

One day your heart I will capture

It I will not steal

Your heart I won't rapture

Your wounds I'll heal

 

Your tears I will dry

Your fears I'll take away

I promise we'll get by

I promise we'll make it to the next day

I promise our hearts will fly

Just promise you'll stay

 

Our hearts will join as one 

Come take a walk with me 

My tears weigh a ton

Lets set our minds and feelings free

To face my fear I have won

Lets have people see 

We're having all the fun 

Our relationship will remain

Our love will forever be

I may add more to this one. I don't feel it's complete.

The One Who

She is the one who betrays

She is the one who lies

She is the one who plays

Those silly games that wry

 

For she was apart of my tree

For she was at the table with me

For she was the strength

That gave me great length

 

Now she's gone

When she broke off

And went to the thorn

That was forn

           The Tree!

Peace Among Humans

Folder: 
You|Society|Change

Peace among humans is a must

But all we share is a look of disgust

Disrespect and lack of trust

 

Peace among humans is there

So little, to find is very rare

But nobody seems to care

 

Peace among humans is wanted

But everyone is simply blinded

By hatred and frighten

 

Peace among humans is desired

From everyone who inspired

 

Other with love whom conspired

Never Gone

Folder: 
Love, Romance

 

 

...

 

Truer words could not be said,

Nor rainbows beamed from flesh unwed,

To know one's soul, and hold its light,

From hands of love such sparks ignite,

If I lay me down to sleep,

And leave this vessel, please do not weep,

For love like ours n'er be denied,

Behind the veils of moments cried,

If I wander do not be pained,

For it is this love that I mean to sustain,

Close thine eyes and feel this heart,

For its been yours at my very start,

Before the sun shined light on earth,

The seeds were planted for love's birth,

And you and I became as one,

To live this life that has begun,

Hold it tender, love it sweet,

Until again our lips will meet.

Melissa,

 

 

As I wrote somehow the thought of JFKs death rose within me and my love for my better half. Probably because of the date you wrote your poem. -peace-

The Race

One in front, two behind.
Two in front, one behind.
Look back -
There are many behind.
As a team or individually?
How shall this race be won?
The longer I run,
The longer the race goes,
The longer the finish line is in sight.
The longer it is in sight,
The closer it may be.
O my mind! How it plays evil tricks!
The heat on my head,
My body, my hands, my legs.
O how my chest beats
With thy heart trapped in its cage.
How can I bear this pain any longer?
How much further must I run?
How many more obstacles must I pass?

 

Closer now I get,
Many more, yea, I hath passed.
One passed, one more to block the way.
One trouble gone, seems another has arrived.
A burden is rid, yet another takes its place.
The impatience grows inside me,
Yet the humbler I feel
As my feet hit the ground
One by one.
One by one is how the race is won.
One by one, each second is gone.
One by one, each step closer to the finish.
One by one, each obstacle is passed.
One by one, each round is done.

Sweet Nyarlathotep, when our love is never done;

Appearing to me when I did call.

Please tell me you never be gone,

Don't break my heart at all...

 

These fearful nightmares,

The road to terror and beyond.

Loving your most precious words,

That made us twain, that made us One.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A love poem for Nyarlathotep.
