Gift of Flight

Set free from my cage, and not feeling my age
I took wing on silent breath of air
Aloft and caught up in a forever dream
I hadn’t a worry or care

Over white mountain peaks, and rivers blue,
Green pastures, and majestic horizons I flew
Never have I known such contentment and love
As I have from unparalleled stations above

Further still I flew, and higher too
My companions, the sun, clouds, and wind
Enveloped in splendor, I suddenly knew
It was a beginning, not an end

Until at last, I came to rest
On a perch too high for eagles to crest
Where my eyes will always look down on you
And my love be the light that sees you through

Lost

Lost, confused, and abandoned by reason
Stripped bare in the midst of a cruel winter season
Consummate victim of the Great Fall
In crippling pain and now forced to crawl
On knees not accustomed to bending,
On thorny and harsh, rocky ground,
With abiding dreams of an ending
To the pain he sees all around
And sleepless dreams unrelenting,
Of
A Peace that will never come…
A Love that has left him alone…
A Life of squandered splendor…
And a Death to suit such a one!

Ten Reasons To Me

I’m going to the corner
Because one I’m a loner.
Two, people scare me
to the point I want to flee.
Three, I hate myself
That’s why there are suicide notes on the shelf.
Four, I want to hide
Just like I wish to fly.
Five, I already heard too many goodbye’s
And how I wish those were lies.
Six, my heart hurts
I swear I will burst.
Seven, corners are dark
Light burns and leaves a mark
Eight, I don’t like the light
Because it doesn’t feel right.
Nine, I know I’ll go insane
Because I know peoples sacrifices were in vein.
Ten, I feel others dislike towards me
To the point where dead is what I want to be.

I Fell In Love With You

I see the world through my eyes
As a vicious cycle of pain and lies
You’ll never see what’s inside of me
So back away and leave me be
I’m sorry to say
But stay away
I don’t want to hurt you
Even though it may seem cruel
You are there in everything I do
That’s only because I fell in love with you

Does anyone care?

Does anyone care?
Do they even want to know?
I don’t think they do
Is there anyone out there?
Someone whose shoulder I can cry on?
I don’t think there is
Is there any hope for me?
Is there any sort of light?
I don’t think it exists
Does anyone care?
Is there anyone out there?
I don’t even know
Can anyone help me?
Anyone at all?
I’ve lost all hope…

Look! There he is!

Look! There he is!
Death is on these walls
Death is in this air
Death is on this ground
Don’t you see him?
He’s standing next to me
Whispering in my ear
He’s with me right now
Can’t you see him?
Death is behind you
He’s breathing down your neck
Death is close
Don’t you feel him?
Death is caressing me
He’s holding me close
He’s whispering sweet things
Don’t you see?
Can’t you feel him?

Look! There he is!

I feel sadness inside me

I feel sadness inside me
As my world is upside down
Darkness engulfs me in despair
As shadows of death looms everywhere
Destruction is imminent
Gunfire is felt across the world
As murder is prevalent
