Too Long In The Dark

I wanted to believe
That hope didn’t lie
I was never deceived
True love couldn’t die
And for all my failings
Though I know I’m blind
That smile sent me sailing
But that smile isn’t mine
In a second I was torn
Not in choice but in torment
I saw my hope as forlorn
What still remained of fate spent
So what then is left to say
When ones dreams are broken on rocks
And no matter how hard you pray
Your face will not hide the shock
Left alone just too long in the dark
What sparks now and then never makes flame
And though we may reminisce about the start
It seems that time will never come again

The Wind

 

 

 

I of course survived

said the tortured winds of time

For as you look around

You will see the world is mine

Though there were pretenders

Their bones I’ve turned to dust

So to their civilization

And it’s intrinsic lack of trust

Now I swirl around you

The planet’s history in my song

Who will hear the words of warning

And understand they don’t belong

My time is simply forever

Yours a second in its path

As with all others before you

Your arrogance makes me laugh

Bring the anger let it be rage

A physical pain I know I can tame

Not this empty sense of blind despair

Broken from within unable move or care

Show me blood on a wall and shattered bone

The darkness I left but can still call home

There I can breathe, understand and exist

Here I am lost because of what I miss

So easy to slip back and just cut off

But I know I can’t no longer am I lost

I shall embrace what I broke

Own the folly of a loving hope

Maybe just maybe only hurt for a time

Grateful for the smile I know is only mine

stolen hours

Did it show or was I able to hide

Beneath the laughter behind the smile

Neither forced or in anyway untrue

A feeling I know well when I’m with you

The moment my heart broke in agonising pain

A moment I would live a thousand times again

It was always a folly of my own invention

A pain I caused so will never mention

A scream that deafened contained in my head

Threatened to overwhelm refused to relent

Ignored by shear will shut down at its source

To enjoy the hours that long consumed my thoughts

I have never known such a smile and eyes that laugh

Able to lift my soul in an instant obliterate any shadows I feel cast

For those hours I would sacrifice all

Without thinking I would happily fall

Because at its core I know only this

Those stolen hours are a granted wish

 

 

Distance

I guess it just comes easy simply not to see
Close my eyes against a world that may seek to deceive
Sight long trained not to linger but to glance
Keeps life at a distance safe from its trance
so on those occasions when a vision breaks through
It stays as a memory unbroken and new
Vibrant with colour so vivid and bright
That all else is lost within its blinding light
Then out of nowhere pictures flood my mind
Of that I know I miss but am sure of where to find
