London    1994 -   
An old soul dwelling on the edge of the present and the past. Creative melancholic, idealist, lonely romantic.

Candlelight glowed,
Irregular
A lock of hair
Of someone you loved.
A handful of former significance
Endures.
The silence full of life.

January stars
to far away for wishing
truth is broken anyway
it's the entire ending

Hollow brittle bones
you tried to keep from breaking
your wings they melted anyway
the lark is now descending

But please don't fall out of my sky
This wayward soul needs too much light
and I'm not ready to say goodbye
But if you're goin' out
if you're goin' now
Go gently please

Feathers fall like rain
beneath a silver moon
haunting sound of nigh-time souls
a bitter somber tune

Sing softly to me now
of how you'll rise again
sew the broken wings anew
let the light back in

And please don't fall out of my sky
you've burned to long and bright
and I'm not ready to say goodbye
But if you're goin out
if you're goin now
go gently please

Sometimes I apologize
to silence
for the wrong
notes

Something broke inside me.
glow-stick soul
snapped
one too many times.
There is nothing here
but broken glass
the darkness remains
undefined
un-defied.

Passengers on some long lost train
never seems to stop
till we're thrown out at the feet of God

So many miles to go,
before we sleep
And they're still praying that our souls will keep

So darlin' keep on praying here
and I'll just keep on singing
Our voices drowned out by the tracks
They tore our burdens from our backs
We forgot what stars looked like
the sky's too bright with city lights
but we're still here, love, we're still here.

There's more to life than this
but I'm not sure what
So I'll just take the risk

So maybe it's not as it should be
But at least we're here
and at least we're free

I’ve a softer soul than you thought I did
but a heart like melting snow
Remember love, that what you love most
is the first thing that will go.

I can't calm this storm, it rages on
perhaps it always will
I'd tear your sails and split the mast
but with most reluctant hands.

Kisses bruise like other sins
These lips are cut and rough
sirens song to drown my hopes
that I'll ever be enough

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?
