sadness

maybe all the things he didn't say
were true
and all the spoken words
had meaning afterall
perhaps the earth deserves
the flood
and ice, the lingering flower

How are you?

How are you?
Such a question...
is a request for
the summary dust particle of an atomic blast
the cresting crystal snowflake of an avalanche
and the final liquid raindrop from a hurricane

flatlined

Once again
I'm sick inside
My hopes die
And my heart drops
And the line goes flat

A word, a grab, It's all the same
Again and again
Hope slips away
And the line goes flat

It's NOT that bad
It's just not good
I love you. I hate you. I'm torn apart
And the line goes flat

I have no hope
I have no heart
I have no pulse
Every time I live again
The line goes flat

You rip me up
So good so good
Just little innocent flaws
That tear me down
and no one sees
I hate you I love you
How do I forgive you?
Again
Again
The line is flat

He will Sing

Little one little one how do you know?
How far you've come or how far you'll go?
The monsters who chase you are scary for sure
But one who is greater defends you and more
The axes they fall and the battles they rage
But the Master's plans overwrite every page
You are safe little one, do not cry, lift your face
Your Father wipes your tears with His love, with His grace
And if you will hear Him, He will sing over you
You will know, He is peace, He is all, He is true.

It Is What It Is

That's just the way it is And it isn't going to change Wishing will not move them And your will won't rearrange the facts. They are what they are. They'll be what they will be Don't forget and start to think And hope any differently. For if you do then heartache Is just around the bend It is what it is and It isn't going to end

Book

I just bought this book for nothing.
I got all excited about the cover
And the first few pages enchanted me
And I was engaged.

I thought I was in love.
But It seems the cover mislead me
And this story is taking a turn in a terribly
Wrong way

The words have stopped speaking to me
And I'm not sure when they lost
Their lustre.
What happened?

But I can't just put the book down.
I have too much invested.
I hope it changes. I hope I can write
some of my own stuff in there.

Accept the Rain

Accept the rain
And love the pain
Again and again
Because He did

Find joy there
When you're stripped bare
With none to spare
Because He did

Show Love raw
Through clenching jaw
Through hope and flaw
Because He did

Bold Face

Bold Face
You looked me in the eye
You held me with a sigh
Lie

Bold face
You held my trembling hand
You whispered love so grand
Why?

Tender heart
You break me up in pieces
I'm broken up in pieces from your
Lies

Why?
Did you say you love me lying?
When you could stand to hear me crying?
Did you say you care for me
When you can brush me off forever?
Did you say you fear for my self
When my self is left without you?
Why did you lie to me?

Why did you think it was better to lie?
Now I have to grieve and suffer. And you are fine. It was not better.

When will you leave me alone?
When will you stop bothering me?
I keep thinking I have the upper hand
When suddenly I realize you have control
and its so subtle
yet so completely gripping
and strangling me
the way you won't let go
the way you move me
and torture me
stop!
please leave me alone
go away already!
I never said we were friends
and if I did, i didn't mean it.

with what you took away

I found it where you hid it
out into plain sight
where you say i'm safe
into the dark of light

what you say confuses
what you do confounds
your words break up my heart
your stay my heart abounds

i cut myself today
with what you took away
you cut myself today
with what you took away

i read about them kind
that push and hurt wth words
they tie me up in knots
those words that are absurd

and so I see our bonds
of swords and blood and shame
i cut myself today
with what you took away

Dusty window

A cloudy window
A dusty thought
A ray of light?

She sits alone at her computer
typing out, stabbing out her pain
as her fingers bleed on the keyboard

A musical note
A sound of need
a call, her name?

What does she hear? What does she see?
All around is pain, and uncertainty
but the future is full of change

Prisoner

The bombs go off outside
The people run
and the helpless find aid
in the compassionate

The bombs go off inside
and the devastation
goes unnoticed

The hostage is silenced
The prisoner is slapped
The outside world smiles
at the pretty building

until it collapses
then they cluck
tut tut what a shame
what a terrible inhabitant

Intervene

Come and gather round
The clock is ticking
without a sound
I fly by
unnoticed

Intervene
I'm standing here
waiting
Come between
me

The clock is hammering
confusion
upon me a rhythmic
contusion

Intervene
