The Winds Whisper
If I placed my bare feet into the sinking sands
or dove into the deepest trench of the oceans,
Would I find my soul in the midst of it all?
If I rested upon the back of an eagle
and laid my head down
could it still soar into the heavens
with the burdens that I cast on?
My heart longs to find the place where it comes from,
but everything I turn to, turns its back on
Relentlessly I search through the forests of time,
Combing through the branches all day and all night long.
but every place I go to,
the winds whisper: you don't belong.
I Am Not Your Character
Life is dreary
But I am not your character
Leaping from the pages of your mastermind
I'm not ready to withstand what obstacles you place before me.
But still your darkness wraps itself around me,
And tries to pull me into the portal of your cruel imagination.
Love: It Has Messed With My Mind
Love: it has taken hostage of me.
It tells me if I don't give in,
it will torment and haunt me for all of eternity.
Nonetheless, my aching soul waits determinedly
for that ransom to come in at last and set me free,
But if there is anything Love has taught me,
it is that it has always been there for me.
So maybe Love isn't the enemy,
for it is you who allowed me to believe that Love would damage me.
I Stand on Ground
I used to dream
my dreams out loud,
But when I'm up,
I can't touch the clouds
And maybe that's
just what it's about
Because I can't float,
I stand on ground.
Lost in shadows where fear has taken captive of me,
Forever in bondage by my failures and my iniquities.
The way I see it, my hopes will forever remain worthless dreams,
And I’ll never be free of the burdens my life has given to me.
In mornings, I sing songs of fortune and opportunity,
But who am I to kid, I am a fool way beyond my means.
Then nights, it casts the reality I’ve begged my soul not to see,
And the tiresome body that holds me together
Falls apart into three.
Leaving all that's left of me:
My empty soul, my torn mind and my lifeless body.
Sea of Tears
She was drowning
in her sea of tears.
desperately trying to grasp
the salty water
only to find it slipping through her already prune fingers.
She was losing it.
Falling deeper and deeper
into the abyss of her raging ocean.
She wasn't going to make it.
There was no way for her to get out.
There was no way for her to breathe.
What They Say
But trust is miles away.
Promising me their love
But I know they're the abusers,
they say they are not.
My heart is severely fractured.
Hear it barely beating?
Sometimes I wonder,
if it's even there,
if I am still breathing.
Despair climbing walls rapidly.
Enveloping its way into my core,
burning each bridge
as it takes the breath out of me.
Exhaustion seeping through.
The thought of salvation,
tormenting and unlikely.
Who am I to have an eternal desire?
To be awakened from this nightmare,
And be held safely like a dear child.
A never-ending pit resides within my stomach.
I'd say it has to do with guilt, but when I think,
I know I've found nothing.
Maybe it is you who can tell me more about this thing called living.
Perhaps then that would calm the upset seas that are churning deep within my stomach.
