Once on a quiet night,
the brilliance of your look
took me by surprise in light,
like love out of a book
I used to pour
the painful tears,
until my eyes were sore
You fought against the fears,
when evening becomes pitch
dark with no shine
Send away my twitch
and claim you a mine
The frost eats my soul
but you fill the hole
Wrapped tight in my head
Drowning in a thoughtful pool,
I sink into my foam bed,
wanting to hide from the fool
Enjoy the peace that sweeps
Draws the shades against my mind
Each shadow breather creeps,
they are cold and not kind
The love that floods the alley
Your footsteps on my landing
Once again you will rally
It is worth a beautiful branding
For you I hope and wait,
you have the key to the front gate

My head starts thinking,
it needs to stop.
My heart starts racing,
it needs to stop.
My blood starts boiling,
it needs to stop.
My muscles start aching,
it needs to stop.
My rage starts building,
it needs to stop.

My head starts thinking,
it needs to think faster.
My heart starts racing,
it needs to race faster.
My blood starts boiling,
it needs to boil faster.
My muscles start aching,
they need to ache faster.
My rage starts building,
it needs to build faster.

My life is falling,
it needs to stop.
My emotions keep happening,
it needs to stop.
My love keeps dying,
it needs to stop.
My hopes keep failing,
it needs to stop.
My pain keeps hurting,
it needs to stop.

My life is falling,
it needs to fall sooner.
My emotions keep happening,
they need to happen less.
My love keeps dying,
it needs to die harder.
My hopes keep failing,
they need to fail harder.
My pain keeps hurting,
it needs to fucking die.

Days that passed were only days, but they looked like a life time.
 Her glass cage had to be unlocked, but first someone had to notice it was there.
  Keeping the power and force of everything that is left.
   The remains were swept into a carefully looked after box, waiting to be released.
    But she was anxious, to look outside again and see a clear sky, still hoping there was one.
    But, she was still so contained, still not free to herself, to believe in life.
   The girl pushed herself to remove her on confinement, took her feelings and imploded the box.
  Keeping herself free she went on her way to fly to the future.
 Her journey has just begun, but being solidified on the path.
Days passed until she was comfortable in her new life.

 It took months to find the true hope that was pulling her.
  Another lost soul, the perfect match, steady and bright, pulling her closer, testing faith.
   She wished she could understand this new life, the feeling of being free.
    Choices were made without her permission, choices that baffled her.
     But when it was explained it made more sense.
     But explaining her new heart is still difficult.
    Choices she makes thrill and scare her, confusing the reality, making clear the dream.
   She has decided to enjoy this dream, because it is reality, as reality is dreamed.
  Another chance at, love, that's it.
 It is the purest love, not driven by need, but want, and hope.

  For this she has been preparing, still hesitant, wanting to make sure.
   Proud to say that she has found him, it, herself, with this future path in hand.
    She knows that it will always be this love so strong and burning.
     They will be this way forever, never losing fire, flame, fuel.
      But there will always be change, always growing and moving together.
      But, they will never no true anguish together, they have been forever meant for each other.
     They met and it bloomed.
    She left years ago because it was not going to bloom yet.
   Proud now, to say she loves with all her heart.
  For her heart has been unpackaged and rewrapped and thankfully by him.

listening to all of those good songs that i listened to non-stop last year. i remember the days that i listened to them. what happened. what didn't happen. my heart swells every time i hear the words. i just want to run back into the past. cover my eyes and run like hell. no one knows how i feel. my stomach is all butterflies. i can't swallow them down. i just want all the haze to go away. the pain. pain pain pain. pain, hurt, depression. such heavy things that weigh down on me. nothing so simple as bliss. i feel as if i am on a merry-go-round. going through daily activities, doing the same thing over and over again thinking something different will happen each time. insanity. that is the definition of insanity. isn't it? my head hurts. off to write up some poetry storms.
