Keep Me In The Dark

Keep Me In The Dark

Just put my heart in deepened ground
I don't think I'll need it anymore
It's too much to carry when it's around,
too much to mend when it gets torn

Just throw that clock right out the window
I believe it's rolling much too slow
So much pain out the pane
now the days will just go and go and go

Just place my eyes down in the sand
'cause what's not seen isn't desired
And I'll never again feel the pain of someone's figurative hand
I would run, but I'm much too tired

Just let me live until I die
even if I die while I'm still alive
Just take the sun from out the sky-
it just shows so much disaster

Please keep me in the dark... until the morning after



Inebriated, to say the least
Distilled in spoken peace
at four within a morn
to his wife who wouldn't cease

her disbelieving feel
"You're lying to me still"
Never would he cheat
but she's thinking that he will

"I was at a bar"
he said with all his heart,
stumbling all around,
spoken in the dark

"I was at a bar,
golden were the doors,
Golden was the name,
gold upon the floors

I was at a bar-
idyllically serene
My gold upon the gold
urinal latrine
I was at a bar"
slurred it to his sleep
"You were at a bar?"
spoken in her weep

She waited till the dawn, she waited till the day
so woefully along, so woefully away
Calling on the phone, knowing in her vane
no bar would ever own Golden as a name

But spoken on the line,
staggering her mind
"Golden" given so
vocally benign

Wishing to be sure, she asked a little more
Questioning the sir, "Do you have a golden door?"
Astonishing again, "To make your way within-
through our golden doors, that way has always been"

"But have you golden floors", questioning some more
"The gilding of your soul is to step upon our floor"
Astounded by these things,
she vocally careened
"But a urinal latrine
goldenly serene?!"

Silently the line
had suddenly become
Wonder in her mind
of what she could've done

Detachedly removed,
shouted to the back
"Hey Mac! I think we've found
who was pissing in your sax!"

Homesick Blues

Homesick Blues

I know I'm heading home again,
to a home I've never known
This road I know all too well
seemed endless long ago

And now it seems more hopeless
but still I walk this road
Time is now so helpless
as it struggles to grow old

I know I'm heading home again,
to a home that isn't mine
I've lost the map I've never had
I'm searching for a sign

Please love me for my forever
or till the end of time
Don't leave me here forever
and leave me hanging on to time

These homesick blues are what I'm singing
but the melody's all that's mine

I know I'm heading home again,
to the home I once wished for
Through love's ocean, I've survived
I've washed up upon the shore

I'll love you now like I loved you then-
like I've loved you much before
I love you now like I'll love you then
I couldn't love you more

I know I'm heading home again,
to a home that isn't mine
You've drenched my heart with gasoline
Love burned me so, so kind

Some doors open and some doors close
just like eyes--- but some are blind

These homesick blues are what I'm singing
but the melody's all that's mine

Lie To Me

Lie To Me

Keep your truths
and tell your lies to me
It's them I'd rather hear

Your candor'd looks are just eyes to me
and what you whisper in my ear
means nothing unless you lie to me
Your lies I long to hear

For everyone has truths of theirs
for agreed society
But lies tell me exactly what
my eyes are blind to see

You lie and say you're never scared
I know you long to be brave
You lie and say you never cared
I know all is what you gave

You lie and say you're content
I know you long to be free
You lie and say you're happy when
sad you'd rather be

The truth is overrated
We need lies to take their place
The lies that we've created
are written on our face

Over the Edge

Over the Edge

From the edge, I've found nothing
but an abyss
I've fallen in love
with just one kiss

that proved to be nothing
as I kept falling down
But now I must climb out
of the love that I've found

So why did I love with all of my might?
Why did I dream with all of my night?
Why did you leave me with all of my plight?
Why was I blinded by a love at first sight?

And with the brightest of halos over her head,
the heaven I've dreamt of was my hell instead
And my dreams became nightmares so trapped in my head
'till they escaped to my heart and left it for dead

From the edge I took one step
and that was all that it took
I was blinded by love
but I just had to look

And now I'm climbing forever
like I've always been-
trying to discover what love's all about

Love's the abyss of which with ease to fall in,
but is the hardest thing to ever climb out



I've tasted love
and have wasted love;
so encased in love
I be 💘
I've lost the fight
and have tossed at night;
turned and churned until
I'd breathe 💔
So what of love?
The rut of love;
just a cut above
I be 🖤
The story bleeds
in all it reads,
but all you need
to see 💗
is this love's
like every love
that could ever be 💞
And all that's strange
and rearranged
is all that's changed in me 💝

My Heart's Incarceration

My Heart's Incarceration

All you've got are garroted scars,
a scab upon your wounded heart
All you've got is who you are -
a false impression torn apart

Condemned you are without a bar
on your cell within a dark
that won't ever let you leave,
but counterfeit is who you are

Final words you've always heard
cut you like a lover's sword
Cut through skins so fragile torn -
All of which you learn to scorn

Confined within a joyous time
but detained within a pain
Clearest skies but in your mind
is where it has to rain

Free from freedom as of yet
Trapped in all the pain you'd get
Escaped from heart
through your mind
before the sun would come unset

Trapped in what you'd never get
Shawshanked your way through all the shit
Freed from freedom as of yet
Soon the sun will have to set

Silhouette the sun
My darkened one
has been the brightest thing I've seen
Silhouette the sun
My darkened one
has been my everything

Manipulate, my fate has been
my dream now once again
Manipulate, what I hate
has never let me in

My dreams I hate, I came too late -
contemplated once again
All my fate manipulates
but never lets me in

Fate is what I contemplate
but behind me once again,
fate controls each move I make -
the way it's always been

I don't know if I hold the strings
or if it's them I am within
All I know is everything
has brought me to an end

So silently on the floor,
the ventriloquist has died
with all his strings knotted violently
right there by his side

Marionetted, he
has faithfully
held on to his heart
But scarred it up,
so silently
he's torn himself apart

The ending to a story
that never had a start
No middle and/or glory
for the broken heart

::That Angel Over There::

::That Angel Over There::

I don't know
where she's thrown
her halo,
but she's thrown it in disgust.
Tears she's known, she'll always know
Not a choice, but cuz she must

She's just tired at 2am,
waiting on the sun to rise
She's just feeling it's unjust
to not have trust, but lies

Found that halo in a corner -
shattered in twelve
All that's left is to count 'em
and to count upon ourselves

Life's amiss
this is bliss, it is until we die
She was pushed
off a cliff
Her only choice was to fly

But I tell you this angel
won't be an angel no more
(Her laugh... a sigh);

while the saddest part -
through all the sadness -
is that
no one'll know why.

still swingin

still swingin'

If I don't fight,
I lose...
and let the world get the best of me.
I just might, but
I must choose
what I'll be for an eternity.

If I don't fight gravity,
gravity's still gonna swing.
And if I don't fight reality,
I'm still gonna have to dream...
with all my might
as alone I lie.

So although it seems
the odds are crumbling,
I'm still gonna fight...
and I'm still gonna try...
to truly live this life of mine
until I die.

Much More Than Me

*Much More Than Me*

Desert me
'fore you hurt me
Rather that
than the other way around

Try to fly high
'fore ya die
don't let the others weigh ya down

/You were meant for/
/much more than me/
/In a sense, my love's/
/What it was that had to drown/

And so your smile's been my sun
That doesn't mean you have to stay
Sky's were meant for night
And we've already had our day

Through miles, you're the one
The only thing that I have found
My eyes weren't meant for sight
And my ears weren't meant for sound

/and you were meant for/
/much more than me/
/In a sense my love's/
/What it was that tied ya down/

/In a sense, my love's/
/What it was that had to drown/
