Silver bone
the phantom

I can feel you rotting inside my teeth
Breaking my bite and clenched smile
You’ve stayed too long inside
A clean mouth

Spitting you out
Washing it in

My pockets are lined with paper
My finger holds the stone
That knows me better than
Better than my
Silver bone

threading through memories of your past
weaving hopes and dreams on the loom of life
in and out
under the hanging overpass
over a creaking bridge
poised to collapse beneath me
constantly testing me
asking me the question embedded in my heart
take the route of avoidance
and back again
echo patterns of yesterday
trace back to the start
follow through a silver thread
I perfect my backwards walk
Across the avenue
As I make amends
Picking up pieces of broken glass
My collection of mistakes
Trying untangling knots
That can’t be untangled
Longing for the day
When string flows freely once again

I can't have lactose,
but I can have drugs.

Come be my Silver lining.

When I crumble and fall
Come steer me with your grace
Take down my wall
Lock me in your embrace

When all my dreams fail
Come give me a taste of life
Let not my blood turn stale
Untangle my inner strife

‘Cause that’s where my life is hiding
Come be my Silver lining.

Don’t leave me with my demons.
Don’t let the emptiness devour me
Be my bearing,
My tool to survive
Guide me to you
Let me feel alive!

When the lights fade out
And my fears crawl
Shed the silhouette

‘Cause that’s where my life is hiding
Come be my Silver lining.

Heave me out of the ruins
Where love was torn down
And lives were destroyed.

Come be my shining light
Break the walls that confine me
Lock me in your embrace
‘Cause that’s where my life is hiding.

Just be my Silver lining.

Won a Silver Star,
Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts.
Lost my wife and kids.

Silver
whispers sweet nothings.
Silver
sings on fading moons.
Silver
melts with metallic warmth.
Silver
lights an undiscovered cave.
Silver
rests on elegant fingers.
Silver
becomes the tap of rain on tin roofs.
Silver
is the color of the soul.

Silver world awakes

Moonlight shatters
The crystals disperse
Flakes of winter
Fright's curse

Grey clouds of nowhere
Silver world awakes
To the silver sun beams
To the silver birds of song

Silver world awakes not to pleasure
Not to rhyme
Silver world awakes to sorrow
To the silver tear drop, crying

And with every tear the color fades
And more silver becomes the day
Spindling more silver
The silver devils play

And in my castle I hear the cry
The sharp shrieks of broken delight
The blinding light
The shivering fright

And in my castle I hear the wind
That humbles the calls
That corrodes my walls
The silver hissing wind
Driving nails into my coffin
The silver hissing wind
A dead heart will never soften

Meaningless are my dreams
Evanescent dreams
Grey clouds
Silver world

Faded clockwork, clicks
The hour passes, the hand ticks
And I awake into my dreams
Decadent reality, bursting seams

The clock now stops and forever so
Till I return but I shall not go

Beautiful sky of silver
Andie Brandt

Beautiful sky of silver
Thinking of words that make you quiver
If I can't take, I can't be a giver
When did I become so bitter
Grey turned gold and gold turned grey
Maybe if everything would just stay...
Well maybe then I'd be the same
Now I'm almost too tame
Putting my old self to shame
Why can't I share myself with anyone else other than you
And when will I return to my form of truth

Sweet, sweet Suzy on the double picture screen,
she was such a beauty, best I'd ever seen.

She wore a skirt, dress shoes and a blouse,
hung around the front porch of her triple decker house.

I met her late one night beneath the willow tree,
we exchanged kisses and I knew she was meant for me.

Years gone by, although it seems like days,
I still love that women, her beauty never fades.

a silver slither moon
viewed through a station wagon window
parked in a provincial park
with you.
