The WurmThe Arena...
It was the one place where the words of a child would be respected as that of an adult: where age didn’t matter, and your decisions were your own.
Nothing more than an open space in the middle of the market square, it had always had a name too grand for its appearance. But it was where battles were fought, debts were paid. and grievances settled - with the price of blood.
Which made it the one place… the only place… where he could get his revenge.
Now as he stood amongst the crowd, watching the final match before his own, plotting and visualizing the many ways he was going to butcher the bastard… a strange calm settled over his mind.
He took a step forward, making his way through the throng of people surrounding the ring...
His eyes intently focused on the goal before him, he pushed aside those who stood in his path, and squeezed between others unaware of his wrath.
Writer's BlockI had a dream of writer's block
A dream in which my mind was stuck
On words like verbs, and terms like f*ck
And how my head deserved a knock
And in this dream I was quite vexed
I was so mad I was perplexed
I couldn't think of what came next
Nor how to finish up my text
I begged my words to understand
I begged that they come on demand
I couldn't bear a pen so still
That couldn't move by my sheer will
Yet on deaf ears befell my pleas
And this fact brought me to my knees
So I left a prayer on the breeze
I pray to write with ease."
I Met Peace OnceI met peace once on an afternoon stroll
"Walking too slowly" - my eyes said with a roll
And with peace was contentment, who said I looked old
The gray hairs on my head, were a sign he'd been told
So I paused for a bit, to give a piece of my mind
And happiness caught up - she'd been lagging behind
"I would love to chat, but I have no time"
I said in a rush, before in she could chime
And off I went, well on my way
Lest not another bugger, ruin my day
I was here to lose weight, not to chat or to play
And those three looked fit, they would lead me astray
So I picked up my pace, till my muscles did burn
But all that I got, was a cramp in return
And as I sat panting, anger asked me why
worry came to cry, and shame made me lie
While peace, contentment, and happiness...
Slowly passed on by.
Alter EgoAlter Ego
Scared but helpless
Bound and gagged
Within you divided
Bottled and stopped
Anchor to my heel
This need to conceal
The way that you feel
If you put up a fight
If your burden was light
Perhaps we would not find ourselves here...
Dear FinchI have waited quite a while
To send these words to you
Though in my mind, it always was
A thing I ought to do.
For once upon a time you filled
My every night with wonder
And even still I miss those nights
Those dazzling nights of yonder
Perhaps a cat so full of angst
Had no business with the sky
Perhaps a magic rainbow finch
Must spread its wings and fly
So fly, fly! To greater heights
I know you couldn't remain
I only ask that now and then
You fly by me, again.
The Land of Milk and HoneyIn the land of milk and honey
The natives act real funny
The leaders steal their money
To invest it in poverty
The rich keep getting richer
The poor keep getting poorer
The wise think not of better
The dumb all rise to power
In the land of milk and honey
They practice democracy
For the people, ostensibly
To decide to live in misery
The government - is in shambles
The senate - how they babble!
Education - mere preamble...
As for NEPA - just light a candle
For in the land of milk and honey
ALL ARE DRUNK!
Love AcrossIf all you've got
Is a pen and paper
An email service
Or instant messenger
And all you want
Is to love somebody
Far far away
Far far away
All you need
Is to express those feelings
Share those thoughts
Help them see
Your love across oceans
Love across nations
Love across stations
As a possibility
Beneath These Murky WatersA burnt wasteland
Glistens before me
My head above
Two feet below
I inch forward
The landscape shifts
The landscape shifts
Now every step
An obscure risk
These murky waters
While The Dust SettlesThere is always a trial
When dust takes flight
The common man's plight
For parched are the lips
And stale is the bread
And faint is the voice
With which secrets are shared
There's nothing like idleness
To make a tongue wag
Till nought is a mystery
And all is commotion
While the dust settles.
Our KissYour fortitude dies with me,
With a gaze of desire and need.
I stare back, your eyes reflecting me,
A glass windowed soul begins to bleed.
A moment passes as your gaze breaks,
A sense of fear sweeps across your face.
Your heart has been hurt; full of shyness, worry,
I am here babe; let me fill that voided space.
I grab you by the waist, pulling you closer;
I'm in loveI'm in love
in love with your smiles
loving your beautiful eyes
believe me you are enough
enough and much more, my love
I'm in love
your voice gives me shivers
my tears flow like rivers
when i deeply miss you
and want to kiss you
I'm in love
hoping to touch your skin
where have you all years been?
i want to ask you when we meet
you are not just a dream, my sweet
Wandering SoulsYou smiled and called me Kido,
You held me to your side.
You’d laugh and whisper in my ear,
In the bellies of trains we would hide.
We met one horrible night,
in the fury of a disgruntled train.
Me, escaping my kidnapper,
And you escaping the rain.
We rode and talked for hours
Your voice so inviting and true.
We laughed and flirted, just escaped for awhile,
I guess you could say, I was drawn to you.
You told me where you stayed,
Under the bridge, your second choice.
But the first, the forest, was your favorite place,
I could hear it in your voice.
So I lowered my tone and begged.
Begged you to share your wandering style.
‘I don’t even want to go back home,’
‘Just to stay with you awhile.’
You laughed like it was natural
The girl that begged to stay
You laughed like you were happy to see,
a girl to dance your way.
So we lived in the trains,
under bridges and in the trees.
Life with you, my protector…
Well, it was just a breeze.
FondueGuide my hand and my heart
In my playful display of art
Love me as if I was chocolate
And on our wedding I'd be -12 hours late
[negative twelve hours]
You Didn't Fall For MeYou didn’t fall for me,
Though I felt it true.
You didn’t feel the blow,
Though I yearned it to.
You didn’t fall for me.
I heard you several times.
You didn’t have to feel
Or hear me write the lines.
But you didn’t fall for me-
I get it now, I do.
And though it hurts to admit,
I ended falling for you.
Never Ask WhyStay
dream the sea,
I dance the sky,
come I will be your Key
while you slumber in the storms eye
and together we hear the dragons cry,
in the end they are only pigeons made from clay,
all that remains are wings which cannot fly,
we won't be paralyzed by why,
just shake off the debris
kiss the Earth dry
My DarlingMy dear, my darling
How long must we wait?
I'm tired of being lonely,
I don't want to carry this weight.
My love, my darling
How long must we stay
A distance apart that feels like miles,
Why must you be so far away?
My honey, my darling
How long must we hide?
I tired of keeping it a secret,
How you're by my side.
My sweetie, my darling
How long must we wait
To be together in this life,
And see what it means to feel great?
My heart, my darling
How long must we like this live?
I'm sick of sleeping all alone,
With no person to receive love I give.
SupersonicThe sound of keys colliding
From the rusty ring, hanging
One's life seems to tick away
Along with the chime of the keys that sway
Set me free! You cry
But the bars that hold you, you cannot pry
Does that hurt?
Outside you hear the thunder
Shaking the earth underneath your chamber
But thunder cannot collapse the walls
Of the mighty and hailed Fort Uberschall
Down comes the pillars upon the warden
And comes forth an army of the undaunted
The siege has started! Shouts the legionnaire
The booms of their marching echoing up the stairs
A soldier in a golden tunic
And a damsel of Death's music
Destined to meet in the chaos of war.
Without YouAnother night without you and my dear, I must say
This yearning is starting to really bug me
I want you. I need you!
To these soft lyrics...
The tempo and rhythm of my young heart beats
This feeling I'm feeling is heightened each day
The thoughts that I'm thinking just won't go away
I miss you.
I miss you.
I miss you so much!
I long for your company, I long for your touch
I long to stop thinking about you this much
It's driving me crazy! I can't wait for us
To meet. To see. To talk. To be...
Together forever and eternity!
Keep in Touch!
