sitting by an autumn fire

Tell the world that I am alive

And tell the world that I’m alone

Tell them all that I loved you

Just tell them about me

Before it’s too late

I don’t want to feel this way

I think I am misunderstood

I just want to feel connected

But my batteries are going dead

And I can’t hurry things along

If you are reading this

Please know that I am losing the fight

Because time went too fast for me

Moments were like lifetimes

And I let them play out

You must be my mouthpiece

I am too weak now

But still here

Hoping that this one last ember

Will become a fire

archaic dungeon

I cried for the third time today

Embattled with what feels like an eternal ache

Lonely

My soul doesn’t recognize this body

It doesn’t want to be here

Restless

Unfulfilled

Do I set it free today

And watch me wither away

In the crimson tide

Or drive to the shore tonight

And wander into the murk

The swampland of my existence

Is dragging me down

And my soul longs to find peace

And beauty

But here in my life

There is nothing light

The darkness has conquered my everything

So I seek to aid my soul

Let it bloom away from this swampland

Which everybody looks upon with disdain

I am all alone

I am the one with the sad soul eyes

Come find me

Somewhere in Time

Somewhere in time I will be happy again

And be released from the binds of emptiness

My heart ached as I passed by your place today

I know I left something behind there

My love for you

In your bed

The place where you didn’t notice

That you had the real me

When you gazed into my eyes

With your sexy, smoky, bed-me-down stare

My heart aches because it’s vacant

The love, it restlessly tosses and turns

And I wonder why you don’t feel it

But you will remember it

Somewhere in time

I saw your van in it’s usual spot

And tonight I was at the movie theater

Where you first felt all of me in that van

I couldn’t help myself that night

Your eyes captivated me right through my soul

When you were inside me

I came to life again

I am sorry that I wasn’t enough for you

Through the turmoil of my darkest days

I learned that love comes back again

In an instant

For a moment

In a memory

In life we live to love again and again

And I know you will feel my love

If only for a moment

Somewhere in time.

Beyond the shadows of lost love

We grieve for the dead

Upon the moment of passing

The world feels cold and empty

When gone is a life

This love had a life

And now it rots away in my heart

The coffin of a love no more

I’ve burried it

And act like it was never here

But in the night

I’ve got nothing but time

And so I think about the moment

Our love unraveled

Because it was so frail

Like an old Spode china plate

But we dropped it

And cannot glue it back together

It lost its value

And we can’t retract what’s been said

And undo what’s been done

So it rots inside my heart

And withers away between each beat

Someday a new love will sprout

Out from the darkness of this space

With the memory of the life

Our love once lived

And serve as a lesson

To handle with care

I won’t feel cold and empty again

All Over

You’re all over my heart.

It was real from the start.

The rain dances upon the river,

And the melody carries on to the ocean.

The stars shine upon the love of lovers

With unspoken emotion.

Why do we have to be apart?

We lost sight early on.

Did you plan to steal my heart,

And in a moment be gone?

The ticking of clock,

And the time in between

Of what’s left from here to there,

I am about to come clean.

You had the best of me

Although you never knew.

I covered myself completely

Because you’d see right through.

Emotions run too deep.

I feared the truth would seep

Upon a hardened heart

And now we’re apart

And I blamed it all on you.

The coolness bled right though.

Too cool to even care,

I got lost in your stare.

But how could I conceive,

The notion to believe

That what I had was true?

This love was shared by me and you.

I will die a lonely fool

For breaking my heart’s rule,

To let someone simply love me.

Please let the stars above me

Give light to my darkened heart.

Why can’t we just start…

All over again?

Love Forfeited

What did you do to heal that broken heart?

I can’t rely on time.

What did you tell yourself once we were apart?

Clearly, you were never mine.

Time has a way of masking a lovers’ love,

But when you were looking from above

You saw the real me.

The look in your eyes set me free,

But I mistook your stare.

We could never go there,

To the place where trust is born,

In the space between happy and forlorn.

Our love was so raw and new,

But abandoned because it wasn’t right for you.

I guess I am glad that you are fine.

I’m still here, wishing you were mine.

What happened on this scary night?

I put my broken heart underneath a spotlight.

I’m alone,

Clutching my phone.

It’s true,

I’m wishing for a call from you.

I don’t want to be alone on this night.

My broken heart blacks out the starlight.

What happens when I run into you again?

I won’t pretend like you were just an old friend.

I don’t want to feel the fire in your eyes,

And hear you speak with a mouth full of crushing lies.

Can’t you see that you’re hurting me?

On this scary night, I should look to end the misery.

Does a broken heart ever fully mend?

The tricks, the treats, and the torture seem to never end.
