CALM WATERS
and you can’t come around anymore
the world still grinds on just as it did before
the walls still shake at the thought of your ghost
and i am still taking my medicine in the hope that one day you will return to life
there is a time for the waves to break against the shore and a time for us to be dragged out to sea like grains of sand
there will be a quiet place where the anguish grinds to a halt
a pure place where the madness ceases to matter
the final breath for this existence will flow from you as it’s flowed from everyone one before
there will be a resounding struggle as this circle closes around and you are forced to let go
we are all going to ride through fates door eventually and when it closes behind us permanently we will open our arms to the great unknown
let the weight fall away and embrace eternity

OF NO FAITH
are we this forgotten caress
are we lines in a play we haven’t learned yet
is there a way to relinquish the pain and let forgiveness spring forth
a way to just be and not feel so insecure
i have traveled the gambit of fear in my life
to tell a story that still makes no sense
when all i am looking for is a way to let the shackles fall free
and unburden myself of this plague that possess me
but did nothing wrong so why the hell would that be
so let your hands grace my skin again and again
let’s never speak about that preposterous thing they call sin ever again


SHAPE SHIFTER
you stay in your bed and wait for someone to pull back the covers but they never do
you lie to your friends and wonder why they are abandoning you like they always do
you speak in tongues and wonder why no one understands you and they never will
you stay in your bed and wait for someone to pull back the covers but they never do
just like a chameleon you are constantly changing colours in the hope that you won’t blend in
you wish that someone save you from the panopticon of your mind but no one has the key but you

MISSING
we pray to the pretty bones and are still addicted to fluorescent light
we swallow the plastic whole and sell our dreams down the river just for another fix
dance in accordance with what’s expected of us and make sure no one sees us falter
no matter what
we keep a stiff upper lip when we all we want to do is lie so pry it out
break down the entropy and force aside the program to let it out, it doesn’t matter
try and hold on to envy so tight while it slips away and it doesn’t matter anyway
hold the people who understand you so tight they won’t let you escape
down the rabbit hole again
find the courage to reveal who you truly are its all that matters anyway
discard the story they raised you on it is bloated, full of hell and mirrors



SETTLE FOR SOMEONE
You push your aimless words in the hope that I hear what you have to say
But you failed to realise I no longer recognise a single word
You’ve lost the art of conversation my friends when you’re too wrapped up to care how I really am
Your high horse rode off without you and the party ended long ago but you recount these tales as if they were alive
I wish you would return to form
I wish you would grow out of this phase
If you realise the friendships gone you can still talk to me
If you realise you gave up control you can confide in me
I was never one to hold a grudge so we can just let it be
Your dreams don’t have to be lost to your youth
