You wouldn’t have heard it anyway
All the words I tried to say
Came instead like stocking knees
Protected from the slightest breeze
You would let me know
Perhaps even words get bruised in your bed
The lie, the love, the flattened mind
I once believed in kind
Kneeling on the stocking knee
Was just another way you deafened me
You’ve said all along
my unfounded fear
in my own ability
was exactly that.
I’ve tried to be
Your love props me up
loathing and delusions
A smile from you,
a gentle touch…
kind words of support
the falling stops
ever so briefly
and once again
Lay down and dream,
Open your eyes and make your dreams a reality,
Take that step forward,
And keep on going.
Lay down and dream,
Open your eyes and believe,
Believe in the future and what is to come.
Believe in dreams.
Believe in yourself.
Believe in your future.
Lay down and dream.
Wake up and smile.
Knowing you are taking that first step.
Knowing you will get there, where ever there is.
Smile knowing you believe.
This is what's meant by faith
This is what I believe
I do not need the pictures
because my heart will never leave
It hurts to look away
The kingdom of my love
My siblings here give off the smell
of rain that falls from above
You made me believe there were nice guys,
But maybe the nice ones are just better at lying,
You made me believe I was worth the wait,
But it turns out you were too impatient,
You made me believe I was beautiful for once,
But I guess I will never have that confidence,
You made me believe that I could be happy,
But maybe I just don't deserve to be,
I believe in the kindness of strangers,
I believe the world to be a kind place,
I believe happiness to be the most vital essence of humans,
I believe love to be never ending,
I believe you to be my closest friend,
I believe only the dead are free,
I believe those summer nights spent together were some of the best I could ever ask for,
I believe every promise broken was for the better,
I believe nothing is poetic for everything is poetic,
I believe there is somebody for everybody,
I believe love is not always enough,
I believe creativity is as you age, dead,
I believe we're not alone on this black canvas,
I believe music describes that where words fail,
I believe in the person I want to become,
I believe in laws and limitations,
I believe every Friday night to be one of my loneliest days,
I believe in spending quality time with friends,
I believe you love me,
I believe finally you and me are the lucky ones,
I believed in you and I.
