Three Days Grace Vivo

Anyone who knows me knows this is one of my favorite bands. It’s actually a family favorite-as soon as my brother in law gets his guitar fixed, we are going to do a horribly sung cover of this song (with yours truly singing off key like a beast). Anyway. The following sappy triolet is what I came up with after listening to this song. Enjoy, make fun, whatevs. huzzah!

Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you
It was precious moments in the sun
Losing myself was never so fun
Where had it all begun
This magical thing called you
Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you.



Fall For Me

Your fall a chance for to me hope
I wish upon you, shooting star
The sight of you helping me cope

For one moment I will not mope
Bright and shining and from afar
Your fall a chance for me to hope

This feeling, I’ll take both hands and grope
It’s definitely above par
The sight of you helping me cope

I’d like to catch you with a rope
Even though my hands, they would mar
Your fall a chance for me to hope

I see you with my telescope
Beautiful, lovely shooting star
The sight of you helping me cope

Now I have no reason to mope
Memories remain of my star
Your fall a chance for me to hope
The sight of you helping me cope.

Tears II

Gate of repression holds back

The flooding of tears

Light shines through the open crack

Gate of repression holds back

Darkness hidden in the track

Cheeks stained with all of your fears

Gate of repression holds back

The flooding of tears.

II Corinthians 1:3-5. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ.”

Can you hear me calling? Whispering?


Whisper softly so I may hear your name, your voice, and sing along to it’s melancholic melody. Whisper softly so I may look into your soul and see your grace .. your love .. and your honor.


Can you hear the sound of your soul dying? Or does it whisper to you from across the room? In the stillness of night, I cry out your name. Do you hear my grief? Do my thoughts sound like screams in your mind? Do you understand my confusion and my fear? In the stillness of night I hear you calling. I roll over, but you are not there. I open my eyes, but I cannot see you. My chaotic thoughts are the fuel that feeds your fire; they are the food that fills your empty stomach.

“God’s Fingernail”

(had to re-embed video! user problems! 🙂 )
I do not own any of the videos or their content.

However, the photo is mine.

There are times when you see something on television or in a movie that rings true for you. It touches you and explains perfectly what it is you have been struggling to say.

God’s fingernail

scraping me out

when I become someone

I don’t want to be

when I become someone

He doesn’t

want me to be

 Then there are other times you are so low ~ it seems all your eyes can do is rain ~ while your mind thunders ~ and your soul sends bolts of lightning to your heart. The pain is so overwhelming you begin to wonder “what’s the point?”. …then you see something that reminds you God *IS* there, and He *IS* listening…

I saw this one day when I was running errands in town…
