Feeling Blue

Cheer up Pull yourself together Words I love to hate

Time heals, tomorrow’s another day

The obvious to state

When I have slid along a range of feelings

And the finale is a depressing vision

There is always someone out there who is on a Samaritan mission

When a ball you feel like rolling up into

And hiding out of everyone’s sight

Why can’t they understand and see the urgency of my plight

If suddenly a smile on my face

Would unburden me from this load

Don’t you think I would have tried it out without having to be told?

The position I sometimes find myself in

Cannot be erased by a funny story told it takes optimism and perseverance and strength of heart to be so bold

 


 

Blind

I was young but I wasn’t naive

 I watched, helpless, as he turned around to leave

 And still I have the pain I have to carry

 A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

I would fall asleep

Only in hopes of dreaming

That everything would be like it was before

But nights like this it seems are slowly fleeting

They disappear as reality is crashing to the floor

After all this time

 I never thought we’d be here

 Never thought we’d be here

 When my love for you was blind

 But I couldn’t make you see it

 Couldn’t make you see it

 That I loved you more than you’ll ever know

 A part of me died when I let you go

After all this while

Would you ever want to leave it?

Maybe you could not believe it

That my love for you was blind

 But I couldn’t make you see it

 Couldn’t make you see

 That I loved you more than you will ever know

 A part of me died when I let you go

 And I loved you more than you’ll ever know

THE BEGINNING

Tainted has our love gone cold?

In a place that’s bitter and broken tasted of a world I know

Surely there must be something better something forever

Walking past the city lights silence can be so disturbing

You’ll find me standing in the night the stars never seem so unending so unending

But we painted whitewashed everything when all that remains are shadows of the stains

Tell me where did we go wrong? Can we just move on?

Hello from the world below while I’m watching the sun burning as the road is slowly turning when I know that in letting go I’m learning how to live through a life I have to give

Hypocrites All

Your crooked teeth
Of self-righteous ignorance
Gnaw at my very last bone

Preaching always
Of love and tolerance
You know you’ve never shown

Yes Hypocrites all
I challenge you
To live up to your own word

For until you do
The sound’s you make
Continue to sound absurd

You may devour my flesh
And consume my bones
But beware I tell you true

I’ve a mighty pen
With infinite words
You will not soon subdue

As I use it to write of you
