The Green Grass Singing,
While The Leaves Sway In The Storm,
The Grey Clouds Clapping,
As Lightning Dances To Earth,
Illuminating The Dark
the moon hangs over my head
illuminating all of the black clouds
that are forever looming above me
and I wish that for one night
I could sleep easy
without the nightmares of you
laying down my fragile bones
and wrapping my mind in daisy chains
I hope that maybe this will purify my mind
and so I whispered upon the brightest stars
that I could forget you forever and always
and with that I bid the moon goodnight, hoping to sleep easy
We are the stardust
Of the broken
And the damned
We are the followers
And of sinners
We walk alone
In fields of gold
And fields of green
We are the dreams
Of all the dreamless children
But, they say
I am different
And they say
We are not the same
Watch the sky
To all the cries
Of the alone
Who shriek in vain
We are part
Of a movement
Changing the world
In a matter of words
We walk alone
In step with others
Our brothers and sisters
Who we may not know
We link arms
Away, away, away
Illuminating the night
With the daylight
In our souls
We form reality
We form the world
Everything looks perfect in the half-light,
Their reflections beautiful on flowing glass,
The whispering blades of quivering grass,
The silent sky of coming night,
An indigo horizon's illuminating light.
Those flawless young people at rest in the park,
That lay on their backs waiting for dark,
In an oasis of the city between cathedral and canal,
We found euphoria and were in it's thrall.
Heaven is dark, and the dark is warm.
It was here that I found my true home.
There was a time when dreams were upon me
And my heart beat in the silence of night
While my mind raced, and I waited for day
Because day would be prosperous and bring many things
It would turn dreams into something tangible
No longer would what I wanted be what I needed
But what I had would be what I wanted
And there sits contentment
Simply being with what I had
And as I wondered what would become
The sun rose upon the horizon
Shining down on the valley and illuminating the world
Though only partially
For while we are in the light,
Others are in the dark.
And to realize that, is true gratitude
For what we have is good
And dreams for ourselves shall only take place in the recesses of our minds, but if they are for the good of others they may reside at the forefront...
I found my way back
back, to that place I go to
When I cry
When I sleep
When I die
High in the atmosphere
I have my own hide away
no one can find me.
I've watched the universe
Change from dark to light,
night to day,
night to day.
I've seen caves and creatures
roam the planet.
Lush green trees
ripped from their homes.
fall to the ground.
I've called upon the archangels for protection
from the darkness that has covered the earth.
I've fallen out of my hiding place
and landed in the darkest of nights.
Sun that seems too bright.
Nights that seem too long.
Haunted by words that will
But yet, I've always return
to my spot in the sky,
to watch the evolutions,
revelations, the nightmares
and the miracles.
I've watched our
destroy and rebuild.
Destroy and rebuild.
I've seen the most beautiful things.
Even the city lights
look like fireflies illuminating the planet
I've found beauty in everything.
Every taste, smell, touch.
Every third eyed sensation.
I am not omnipresent.
I glow a soft shade of purples and blues.
All shades, with a white crown upon my head
pouring out the purest of white lights.
My head tilts back as I pray for salvation on earth.
Peace among men.
The earth glitters with hope.
I sit and wonder as I mindlessly play
with the token around my neck.
A ring for prayer.
A reminder of greatness.
I gently allow myself to fall,
sink slowly through the atmosphere
like I am drowning during a sunset.
Tragic, yet beautiful.
Again, down, down.
My wings know not to save me.
Drive to the edge,this rush to feel free,
rambling off my skin and bones,
electrifying the nerve endings.
dizzying highs of the illuminating happiness
wind rushing though my pale hair,pleats of my ruby dress fluttering in the breeze
my fingertips reaching the starry sky,
like all these vast,embellished dreams-
are finally going to come true
freeing me from the disappointing hues.
I am starring blankly at the water;
the gentle ripples gracing against the surface.
Sunlight illuminating the river,
making it glow like
a child's face on Christmas morning.
It is beautiful and calm;
filling me with tranquility.
I came here to try to
and try to forget that you are gone
The river is not only passing over my feet
but is flowing through my eyes.
it's that feeling when you first walk into a concert,
you know what i'm talking about.
when you see the red, green, and blue spot lights.
illuminating our eyes
once again, igniting the spark they try to put out
everywhere you look people are pulsing to the beat, as it unites the crowd in ways you didn't even know existed
standing there, you are allowed to forget
forget the bad math grade, the shitty week, the relationship that you will probably never be able to fix with your mother
I wish that one could feel like this all the time.
but then, that might ruin the specialness of it
If I could feel like this all the time, then maybe I wouldn't feel so lost all the time
That's the beauty of concerts. You let the music find you.
You may be in a crowd with a thousand other people, but that song, those lyrics, that beat is meant for you
Let it crawl into you. Starting from your toes until it climbs up to your head.
Allowing you to take down the walls, brick by brick, song by song...
Giving you the best high you've ever had.
I hope you stand next to someone you love.
But if you dont, love them anyway because you are at a concert and nothing,
is better than that
2 AM and the grass is moist
Cricket's chirps are on loop
Every time I close my eyes, I see something new
It is humid and serene
Eyes fixed on the illuminating stars
Where One is a little closer to nature
A majestic July night
The blue lit space of that barn is now my personal utopia
The ladder a tree with strong branches
The moon a never-ending smile
At this moment, my endless melody sings forever filling my soul with wonder
Is it wrong to think so differently?
To perceive this world as pure beauty?
Is it just me who wants life to be this peaceful for everybody?
This world is timeless; universe infinite
I am nothing but a speck
I am something not even I can decipher
