Come On, Says The Moon

 

hanging from the sky

beams of starched white moonlight

beckons me softly

Oh, This Darkness

blow
the bubble of truth
into the garden
of obscenities
absent though your heart
may be
I cherish the thoughts
that race
into oblivion
darkness floods the
ever present
knowledge of light
flowing steadily
this anti thesis
of eternal water
troublesome and ever present
in the mind
of the believer
this darkness
oh, this darkness
I see into your soul’s eye

Litany

Bind the hearts that would do me ill
Enlighten their minds with the peace of one
And let their evil thoughts be still

I’ve cried an ocean, these tears are real
Their stains on the pillows, dried by the sun
Bind the hearts that would do me ill

God, grant the ability to deal
With all of life’s hardships and with life’s fun
And let their evil thoughts be still

God, grant the ability to heal
The heart, the mind, the feelings of stun
Bind the hearts the would do me ill

Innocent standings upon the hill
Let the rain come down, downhill it does run
And let their evil thoughts be still

Take this hurt heart, give it a refill
Where was the support when I came undone
Bind the hearts that would do me ill
And let their evil thoughts be still.

Lost

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.

Dear Soldier

The world longs for peace and gets war instead
The breath of this world is shallow
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

All these killings, the battlefields are red
Hearts of the tortured are hollow
The world longs for peace and gets war instead

Into these wars we are but blindly led!
We have no choice but to follow
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

For all of the fallen who have, for us, bled
Thank you to all these dear heroes
The world longs for peace and gets war instead

You fight our battles and have never fled
Prayers for you reach the cosmos
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

Continued bravery still lies ahead
Strengthen the thread with your halo
The world longs for peace and gets war instead
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread.

A Night and A Day

A night, a day, the darkness that binds
My heart, my soul, taken for a ride
The sky, the earth, the world that unbinds

I ask, what’s the point of being kind
A heart so blue, it has only lied
A night, a day, the darkness that binds

God’s presence, always seeking to find
His ear I always seek to confide
The sky, the earth, the world that unbinds

And looking back on sight that is hind
Will all this hurt remain by my side
A night, a day, the darkness that binds

An angel’s kiss on my weary mind
Life caught in a nightmarish landslide
The sky, the earth, the world that unbinds

O, Lord, I don’t wish to be unkind
My heart, my soul, taken for a ride
A night, a day, the darkness that binds
The sky, the earth, the world that unbinds

Light of the Ancients

Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there
Sun’s light has threatened to burn out
My arms dance above me and find the air

My heart cries but my eyes produce no tears
Light of the ancients winks out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there

My lit soul caught in darkness and warfare
Whole being suffering a drought
My arms dance above me and find the air

Millions of people, none of them aware
What happens when the world blacks out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there

Desires of the infinite laid bare
Hourglass sands have washed out
My arms dance above me and find the air

My heart cries but my eyes produce no tears
The ancients’ light has winked out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there
My arms dance above me and find the air

Reflection

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is it worse than I think it is
Is that what I look like
Am I really this cold inside
Is my reflection true

Have I pounced upon the weak soul
of an innocent
Have my tears filled the sea
with regret
Has my frost bitten heart been kept lonely
With the rage of the fiery pit

Have my limbs grown weary
From walking these long miles in the cold
Unsure of the destination
I walk..I think…and I cry

Constantly battling false perceptions
Of who I am and who I am not
Am I really this cold inside
Does anyone see the real me

Will I ever be free of this prison
Walking in circles, I am tired
I am tired.
Yet I need to find the key

Will I ever be free of what I see
Reflection of me
Reflection of the world
Where is the light in all this darkness?
Where is the light in my reflection?
I wonder if I am blind.
