WEIGHTLESS

Ankle deep in one inch sleep
These shallow shores my soul do keep
Beyond the wall a Siren's call
No one to hear my silent fall
My edges are curling, turning brown
I woke up dreaming upside down
Fear it came and staked its claim
I held my breath

Hear that thudding thumping drum
My heart it beats, a bloody gun.
Past regrets Hang crystal clear
Your ugly voice is all I hear
My edges are burning, turning black
Keep on marching, don't look back
Fear it came and left its stain,
I held my breath.

In that breath I came undone
In that moment I was weightless.


 

Kick up the dust

Your quiet whisper

Calls to me
Cnsistent,
Seducing
Caressing
Confessing desire.

I yield to your

Everlasting impression,
Suggesting
A question that
Sets me on fire

Kick up the dust

Never quenching our lust,
Onwards and upwards
Where dreams turn to rust

If we discover that
This is the End
Keep me close to your heart
My beautiful friend

Draw a breath
Draw a line
You draw me in
Almost everytime
The damage is done
Yet we linger on
Caught in the glare of our days in the sun


If we discover that

This is the End

Keep me close to your heart

My beautiful friend.

Down The road

One thought can bring me to my knees
One mind is broken by degrees
Wounded healer
Greedy creatures
That is what they say
I believe that I will find my own way

Guilty moments filled with guilty thought
Out of touch
Out of focus
Out of sorts.
Gotta lean in
Dig those heals in
That is what they say
I believe that I will find my own way

I’ll see you on down the road
When the dust has settled and the nights grow Cole
When the winds of change achieve their goal
When the tides have turned as the moon foretold
I’ll see you on down the road
But who knows how long
So for now let’s dance until dawn

Nothing will last
This too shall pass
That is what they say
Get your head down

Tear that wall down
I will find my own way

I’ll see you on down the road

IN a HANDBAG

Deathly taste of guilt on her lips
One more drink will wash it down
Pressure on her trigger finger
One more drink will weigh it down

She's gone to hell in a hand bag
With lipstick on her teeth
In a cloud of smoke that hides her grief

Standing in her house of cards
One more breath will bring it down
Woven web will suffocate her
One more breath will bring it down

She's gone to hell in a hand bag
with lipstick on her teeth
In a cloud of smoke that hides her grief
A woman on the run, she's got a loaded gun
After all these years she's only looking for some fun

Looking in her rear view mirror
Glad to leave it all behind
Running faster, reaching further
One more mile brings peace of mind

FLY AWAY

Another morning dull and grey
Another night before today
Another burn on the Persian rug
And the mirror there on the floor

Another day at the job I hate
Another day I sit and wait
To be upon my Persian rug
With the mirror there on the floor.

On my magic carpet ride
I flew so high I touched the sky
I spoke with angels at the gate
Of the mirror there on the floor

They told me something had to give
If I truly want to live
I caught a glimpse of who I'd become
In the mirror there on the floor.

 

I know my soul will have to pay

Before the devil gets his way

I know my soul will have to pay

Until then I will fly away

Another morning dull and grey
Another night before today
The Persian rug has lost its charm
And the mirror's not on the floor

The magic box's lid is shut
The credit card has been cut up
The final fiver has been spent
And the mirrors back on the wall
