Timing The Moment

Out of the blue

Into the black

My skin peels

That IS the way it feels

Promises are vows

Splintering, snapping, cracking in half

How much longer can I lie here…

With my hands tied behind my back?

The pills keep getting bigger and bigger to swallow

Me, myself, and I are the only ones left to wallow…

Tonight, I will try it again…

Timing the moment

I’ll come face to face with my God

I’ve so much to be forgiven for

Down here on my knees

Down here on my floor

Truth Be Lies

I need you, my high…

Never to wave goodbye

It’s me…I asSailed myself

I unrolled the masking-tape

Stuck myself to the should’s and why’s

Now my fingers death-grip the topshelf

And I hang like a decoration-only drape

Looked upon, yet not used…my real-truth belies

TO YOU

Fantasies slide past my realities

Laughing as they get tickled in my throat

All those things I am too afraid to say

Keep getting swallowed away

 

I stick a finger in my mouth

Depressed it prays for a purge

As it unties my tongues trench coat

Exposing its twisted lies, the truth feels so…remote

 

My imaginary bags are packed

To you…I am ready to move

A fated Passenger enroute

To you…my ultimate pursuit

 

If only it were that easy

I could follow my heart…to you

I want a do-over! I want to make things right!

I want to be able to give absolutely everything…to you

LOVE’S SOBRIETY

Love’s sobriety hasn’t sobered me

Instead I am a junkie looking for it to fix me

It’s sprinting and zigzagging down my face

Painting in black my life’s sad disgrace

I’m deeply in love with you, but in bed with him

I can’t Buff this all better, make it appear less dim

So choose the vein you wish to prick!

But go slow, very slow…please don’t be quick

I want to savor the sweet moment you enter me

Right here, right now…in my prime

Because maybe there won’t be a next time

INVISIBLE HANDCUFFS

It hurts…and the pain

Is like a freight train

Filled with my tears

Railroading me into despair

I don’t want to wait years!

Being without you…

Is a pill I keep choking on

Because I refuse to swallow it

These invisible handcuffs…

Stronger than titanium

Keeping us apart…

Opaque to everyone’s eyes

Except for ours
