Let's get out!
Just You and Me.
Away from all the trivialities
Which drags us down.
All the irrelevant issues
Which won't let us sleep.
Just drive away. You and Me.
Turn the radio on.
Watch the scenery passing by.
The memories of our songs.
Flashing in front of our eyes.
You are smiling, humming a new song.
It is so happy and peaceful.
Further and Further
The car takes us away from the past.
The music let us forget our sorrows.
Let's get into the car
For it has come.
The Cataclysm of your life.
May your exodus be swift my dear.
For your life is put to the test.
Twisting left and right.
You shall live.
If you run.
If thou choseth to stay.
I warn thee of thy competitor.
The dark one of thy soul.
Come forth and Exeunt with me,
He caresses her palms so often
And kisses her on the forehead
The way she likes since her parents
Never gave her the love she wanted;
It's as if he could erase the scars
That has been permanently carved
Inside of her for so long.
As each kiss lands on her skin
She forgets the the wounds are so deep; his touch is strong but it is tender and with each graze
Her pain starts to wash away.
I stare at the bowl, that quiet peaceful bowl,
pouring in the cereal, and then the milk
just at the right moment to prevent sogginess.
pop, pop, pop
go automatic weapons in the streets,
silence, and then boom
goes the sound of a shutting cupboard as I retrieve a spoon
while a car bomb evaporates lives in an instant.
Crying children, mourning mothers, and confused bystanders
conveying their thoughts to reporters
through a screen I will merely stare at.
They must move on with their lives,
swallowing their tragedies,
while I can’t swallow
of some goddamn cereal.
Why does a heart feel so strong?
How do you right what isn't wrong?
So much emotion felt so deep
To the point where one can not sleep
I realize some things are against all the odds
So I look past the stars and to the gods
Though I'm not a religious man
A fool for love this fool does stand
Potential of my passion never fully felt
Longing to give what should be dealt
Time will pass a patient heart will wait
Given no choice but to demonstrate
For I have always been a loyal man
Like a dog by your side I will stand
Hoping your eyes look my way
Desiring your body more each passing day
How does one snap out of an emotional funk?
Wrap it up and discard it with the mental junk!
Let it all go and watch it float away
So I can make it through another day......
A dim flickering light
Blinks it's last goodbye
Not going out with a flash
But instead slowly fading away
Just like my passion
For everything I once enjoyed
And endless dark
Covering my only love
The art has disappeared
And my heart has gone
No passion flows
No interest grows
A sickening depression
Takes away the passion
Fading like a light
That it is gone
I told you so,
When I told you you'd lose interest in me,
as quickly as day turns to night,
I knew that you'd walk away,
before your shy feet even turned in my direction,
I told you you'd do it,
before you even did,
everything good that comes, eventually goes,
and even though I'd prefer if you stayed,
I never hold my hopes up too high,
since I knew you were like a beautiful sunset,
that sooner or later would fade to black
