Stare me down with made up memories and haunt my dreams in such sinful ways. Replace blank stares with knowing smiles, step down that self built up pedestal and hopefully see whom I really am. So pass that joint bury the past surreptitiously. Time to free ourselves just a little bit. Talk it out they say but that won't help if we have no way of loosening our tongues. Kiss me as if it's your first time and let me breathe a new type of world in you. This hidden dream captivates your eyes and I swear my body glows after your touch. Reprimand those thoughts once more but you and I secretly know that name cements my feet in place, don't overlook those stinging words, they burn my heart and fuel the doubt. Whispy lies take hold of my mind and off we go to bittersweet memories. My plane is higher and my vision's stronger and mysteries are now made clear. Sleep is impossible when we're so far away but do not dwell on what if's and give a smile for that lovely joy. I laugh because nothing is ever the same yet we're all afraid of change. Take my hand because tonight is almost over and I want tomorrow to start off right.
There was a storm that day You uttered the words The clouds rolled in "I love you" I hugged you tightly I'm afraid of storms Lightning struck a few feet away The sky screamed above us Around us, we're surrounded You continue to speak so eloquently Oblivious to the change in weather The rain splashes in rhythm To the beat of my heart I listen as your idyllic poetry Gently Soothes The world As I look in your eyes I see something else Determination "I love you too" My heart is finally calm
Choke on a smile The clock ticks 1,2,3 Go ahead and smirk Karma sticks close 'cause you never learn Tick, tock, tick Time's running out Time has no sides It runs against us all But you made Time angry Unfortunately, you've angered me too Tick, tick, 1,2,3 Ready or not here I come
Let me wrap myself around your words Lose the logic Your joy over reason Sing out loud in public Dance as if starring in a real life musical Soak up my presence You'll be left with nothing To lose, that is Or stay average To dry out on a clothesline
Oh these cobwebs Haven't been up here for a while Dusty corners Four walls whisper accusingly Cough in a lie Shush, now darling Secrets and their expiration dates The inner thief is at it again Off he goes with the truth Suppose... It's time to clean out the attic
Your insignificant life issues ruined a perfectly good moment. I'll work from the bottom and tear you apart as I savour your pain between my claws. I've had enough of you. As my teeth sink in and my long held rage is drained, I'll sigh in satisfaction. You alluring manipulating disgusting worm.
My private life is too loud. I'm burning, burning inside out. The flame's the core and it's eating away all the joy. Apologies for fuel and love is wood but the fire leaps at the sound of a voice. Let me burn I'm no use I'm damaged goods You screamed with your actions and I learned to accept. I follow orders like a soldier, an army of one. My next lesson: to keep my mouth shut if I want to live. This private's life is too loud, let me burn at the stake with my kind.
I took a wrong turn I suppose No I'm sure of it Their eyes skim me over Tongues trace a shell Hands rub harshly I took a wrong turn Can't retrace my steps Can't undo the past Can't stop it now I took a wrong turn I should stop and ask for directions.
