The Intoxicating Truth January 26, 2012

Speaking truth without words,
I am only awake tonight.
Taking chances of the moment,
For in a moment i will sleep.

In my slumber the world shut off
To sweet honesty in action.
But never fear repercussion,
For truth never happened.

For if my memory does not hold,
Then it has shattered forever,
Lost to the night’s blustering wind.
Tomorrow will continue from yesterday.

I stood where edges tapered off into nothingness and looked across the flat plains. There in the distance were scabbed mountains, standing ugly and hostile, an almost demonic red glow radiating from it. To the east of the colossus was a silver-lined birch forest. The air hung low and heavy over the canopies making me shiver as I anticipated the chill and bite of early spring mist.

He beckoned me along, pointing at a trail across the pink dappled meadow. There we would journey through this strange wilderness. I longingly looked to the west where the sun sat upon his powder blue throne, smiling down at soft beige sands and glass green liquid. The waves crashed and withdrew as if reaching out to me and gesturing me forward.

It was then when I hesitated that he took my hand and gently, but firmly pulled me down the path leading to the silver wood.

No Glance Behind

For There Is Nothing

Only The Void

I saw the queen
Swam out below her star on sea beneath
Though I lifted up my hands to her
She never lifted me

Oh, something’s missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Found something sweet
On the island with the daughters of eve
But through thick and thin they’ve gone away
And only left their grief

Oh, something’s missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something’s missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something’s missing in me
Something’s missing in me

Down here, love wasn’t meant to be
It wasn’t meant to be for me
Down here, love wasn’t meant to be
It wasn’t meant to be for me
(all is vanity, underneath the sun, all is vanity)

Oh, something’s missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something’s missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something’s missing in me
Something’s missing in me
Something’s missing in me
Something’s missing in me

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker,
Where is your kindness
When letting go.
Falling, falling, falling fast,
You let that hand slip,
And watch it all break down.
Sweet smiles, chipper response
Leading into a dangerous trap.
Not knowing, never thinking
What to do when they are finally caught
Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
All you want is fun
Hurting others while you enjoy the rewards
Childlike delight and unsuspecting cruelty.
Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
Losing all you love,
What are you afraid of?

 

You Left With A Smile (And My Heart)

You carry my heart (wherever you may be).
I search for your face (but only meet with cold).
I gave you my heart (so very long ago)
And you left with a smile (I locked away for myself).

Every breath I take chills me to the bone
(But then I remember that smile that set your face aglow).
Never has the sun shown as bright as your eyes
(As you smile in my mind with your heart next to mine).

Patience holds me close but leaves me searching
(Though my heart never sickens as you embrace it gently).
I find you in the stars (but never close enough to grasp).
I long for the day my hand is in your hand (as my heart is in your heart).
