Shadowman

Shadowman dances on footsteps of old
Could these ancient sands be so bold
To imprint the day’s journey til wind blows
Shadowman dances til time slows
Shadowman lightens the wicker man’s load

Stop in the journey, memories to hold
Shadowman awaits in the cold
The ebb of this long journey flows and flows
Shadowman dances til time slows
Shadowman dances on footsteps of old

Hands held together in a gentle fold
Shadows break into a new mold
A glance over the shoulder quickly shows
Shadowman dances til time slows
Shadowman dances on footsteps of old

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.

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.

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

Delirious

delirious

it’s my fear of belief

oh!

bring your caring

bag of the world

enter in

believe it, friend

believe it, my

periphery is muddling

I can’t think

I can’t see

tears

noxious confoundery

trust

not considered

indigo decisions keep you

from deciding

on merriment

stay

keep a safe

distance

undying needs

loyalty and winds

die out
