Platitudes

“One day when you wake it will just be gone”
So I waited and prayed for that day to come
It seemed like forever would never come true
But now I look back I’ve moved on from you
I don’t know when nor how long since you left
Was only reminded by your name on my breath
I guess after all the platitude held
And one by one the delusions fell
So now when I wake you are no longer there
As real,as memory, as fate or as care

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

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

 

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

 

Uejja

It’s only a word
But it’s more than it’s meaning
It’s only a word
That brings back so much feeling

Music to my ears
I’ve heard a tousand times before
Music to my ears
Sung by a voice I adore

Light in the dark
That a bad day can’t steal
Light in the dark
Can make pure magic seem real

Forever I will hear
And this promise cannot be broken
Forever I will hear
Only your voice when it’s spoken
