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 you
It's true, I do
But you've always known that
You know you're talented
But in ways you don't fully realize
Cause you haven't seen your own eyes
But I have
I have seen them shed tears
I have seen them shake with fear
But I've also seen them dilate
And I've never seen them with hate
Because you don't have time for that nonsense
You might have once
But not now
You're far too laid back for such things
So why do you wait for a King to come?
You shouldn't wait
Especially when you have a Prince beside you
A Prince who believes in you
But do you believe in yourself?
