Come On, Says The Moon

 

hanging from the sky

beams of starched white moonlight

beckons me softly

Deception

my eyes do not know
how to look at you
the fire I started
surrounds my body
from within
it is comforting
while the waves
hit my feet
and disappear
how is it the clouds
know my pain
when all the world
can do is laugh
swim to me
come back to me
with the ease of the ancients
I know your soul
it bounces off my web
and settles
in the belly of giants

Heartbreak

heart ticking loudly
maddening in its eccentricity
burning the past
with the flames
of tomorrow

the universe speaks
but who will listen
to its secrets

clock winds up for the pitch
and strikes out
the darkened prophet
as the sky
rains down anguish and
heartache
from its mind

a web of dreams
wiped from the face
of regret
and sung into the ears
of an unknown generation

hail to the wind
as it hurls the dreams
into the minds of others

Don’t Dare To Sleep

I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
My dead laughter echoing there
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

In your subconscious I’ll abide
It may be more than you can bear
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

I’ll be the ultimate dream guide
Also the ultimate nightmare
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

And now I would like to confide
Your mind is my personal lair
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

But since my sense of humor died
Your comfort’s the least of my cares
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
I will always be lurking there
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll take your thoughts on a train ride
Don’t whine, don’t say it isn’t fair
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

And since my sense of humor died
I’ll haunt your soul for many years
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

And when you look up to the skies
Trying to rely on prayer
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

Even when I’ve broken your pride
And going insane is near
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll always be by your side
Your mind is mine, I do declare
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

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.

Wicked Embrace

This wicked embrace it ties
My hopes and dreams, do they lie
In the blank face of memory
Scream these questions at the sky
Drown the answers in the deep sea
Filled with tears the gods have cried
This wicked embrace, it ties

We hear the dark lullaby
The end of all games draws nigh
The thoughts of one, the thoughts of three
Wherein the giants do sigh
Their oversized hearts filled with glee
Thoughts extinguishing the night
My hopes and dreams, do they lie

The wings of hope, do they fly
The shackles of peace, are they free
My hopes and dreams, do they lie
This wicked embrace, it ties

I was going to post this with audio, but our other computer is broken down at the moment. Boo! I’ll post some audio when we get it fixed. Have a great day all!
