until the autumn came

I met a girl with flowers in her hair
who let summer sunbeams catch her eyes
as they glistened among ferny tendrils
until the autumn came

#girl   #flowers   #i   #the   #a   #autumn   #met   #with   #until   #came  
Trust came as a blade catapulting through the air
DaSH the Average SuperHuman

Trust came as a blade catapulting through the air
          Unsure of its trajectory
Unsure of where it may land
    Unsure of where it was even thrown from
     But it was so gorgeous rotating in its path, pushing light from its edges
          I had to have it
          That feeling of utter security
  
I reached and in half a second my hand was gone
    Trust had sliced every ligament and sinew away
         Carved muscle from bone

         And I felt weak
   I quite literally could not grasp the double edged blade that was trust, and now

       I think I may not ever even reach for it again

But came up short
One Of The Tired Souls

I'm so sorry
To anyone and everyone
Who has ever
Found me lacking
To everyone who wanted
The love they thought I could give
But came up short

I'm so sorry
To anyone and everyone
I have ever failed
I tried so hard for you
But came up short

I'm so sorry
To anyone and everyone
Who has ever
Tasted my lips
And wanted me to want you
I came up short

I'm so sorry
Baby that I . . .
I wasn't enough for you
I love you so much
But I came up short

I'm so so sorry
Please don't hold it against me
Because I tried
But I don't have it in me
I always come up short
Always

I'm so sorry
I love you
I love you so much
It's still killing me
But I came up short
God damn it
I came up short

My heart came over and scolded me for lying
Sarah Lynn Wilkerson

I told you I wasn't interested
In hopes of tricking my heart from the truth
My heart came over and scolded me for lying
Says that I should be with you

I don't need to break again
But I'm already fallin'
If you hold me in your arms
I won't be afraid of the dark

This soul of mine is licking up the flames
Of fire that is coursing through my veins
I would never seek to put it out
For I have a light for you to find me with now

I don't need to break again
But I'm already fallin'
If you hold me in your arms
I won't need to fear the dark

I don't wanna run, wanna run
I'm sick of fighting
We are all the one, all the one

Take tossing and turning
Refusing learning
We all live by light of the sun

Transforming, creating
Inner demons from chaos
Into gardens of light and sweet slumber

Where I met you long ago
And along the way
we'd share stories of when
Winter Came

These are lyrics to a song I have written.
Where we came from
Peter Robert Hamilton

Where we came from
Back against the wall
I think we all stall

It was dark when I came

It was dark when I came
It was dark when I left
But it was light in between

All my dreams came true!

How can I be sad?
All my dreams came true!

I'm so happy they did!

my sanity came;

At first
I thought my insanity left
But instead
my sanity came;

sanity insanity detached yugen mizpah alone together perspective same came instead thoughts inside
#alone   #insanity   #together   #same   #perspective   #sanity   #detached   #came   #mizpah   #yugen  
But my thoughts came along,

I found myself today,
    and we became friends
   But my thoughts came along,
    and they tore up the bound

#friends   #thoughts   #me   #become   #but   #myself   #came   #bound
