Choices

 

 

Choices choices choices

None made

None kept

None known

Choices choices choices

One step

One loss

One home

Choices choices choices

Too soon

Too far

Too hard

Choice choices choices

All gone

All left

All scared

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

My Butterfly

 

They’re other people words
Or the stories they write
Yet louder than any siren
They intrude on my life

I hear their thoughts
And what I see is you
I wish they were mine
I wish they were new

What I can pen
Never seems to compare
Always lacking that feeling
Missing that dare

So I listen and imagine
And from there I yet try
To pen the words that I hear
When stolen by my butterfly

 

Jekyll and Hyde

 

Do you think I don’t see you lurking

There behind the glint in my eye

Always waiting for my weakness

The Jekyll I strive to deny

Not that my hyde is full of virtue

Or even close to morally safe

But when held in comparison

Still has goodness I can place

Less a devil on my shoulder

As a switch in my brain

Able to shut off all reason

And justify the profane

That glint I see now and that lives in my  head

Beckons me to freedom from thinking or dread

Questions my sanity and all I hold pure

Tries to control me with pure pleasures lure

I just want to go home

I just want to go home
Hide from my life
Close my eyes and pretend
I can still see the light

I just want to go home
No matter where I am
Leave it all behind
Replace the storm with calm

I just want to go home
But how to explain
That home I can’t find
Else there I’d remain

I just want to go home
Not live like this
Scared of my shadow
Of an endless abyss

I just want to go home
It’s all I can say
Or see from where I am
Which is at home today
