If you knew
This was the last time
I would trust enough to let someone in
To see the scars that line a broken heart
Weeping in the corner with the shadows
Standing on shards of glass
They crack with each spoken word

If you knew
You would be the last person I’d love
And the first person I’d die for
Would you take it slow
Let it flow
And let me know
It’s not a waste of time
That you're really mine?

If you knew
That ending this
Would drag me high from the mountains
To down below the valleys
Where the monster live together
trapped there forever…
Would you smile in my defeat?
Or fall to your knees along with me
Then we could find our peace of mind
In love.

I know it's been too late
For a year and a month
But can I please change my answer to
I want to make you love me
Because you could never hate me
I wanted to die tonight
Death screams louder than promises
I use to dance around the dream of me
Now I drown in the reality
How loud can you scream until it becomes silent
Can anyone hear me?

Love can shine like salvation.
Love lights unseeable torches
When heated, love evades judgment.
It gives breath to the sweetest sounds.
Love makes reasons and it breaks reason.

These wax wings stood no chance against your rays,
I was warned, I know, but what's more tempting than safety

or perceived safety.

Like Icarus I fell from the sky into the waters and met a cancer, now im drowing cause I can't swim.

id rather be star gazing
but that's what got me here in the first place.

How do you explain us?
Maybe you don’t?
Maybe you can’t?
Even after all the love,
all the madness,
the happiness,
and the heartache
I still could not let go.
Our love was
a different kind of love
an invisible kind.
The type that lived
beyond the physical realm.
Where only the soul
could see.

I’m a stallion
a red-hot blooded Italian
my stripes don’t brand me
strong as brandy
I kick up dust

In a world
of dark clouds
I’m a bolt of lightning
Look out!
I’m striking

In a world
of blooming roses
I’m a thorn
I’ll husk you
as an ear of corn

In a world
of compromise
I’ll not acquiesce
I'll stand my ground
as men aggress

When you fall,
you learn to rise alone.

When you fall,
you learn to overcome alone.

When you fall,
you learn about yourself.

When you fall,
you learn about the people around
you.

When you fall,
you learn more lessons.

The gift freely given
given back to the giver
moment by moment
freedom floods souls
unperturbed by the world
living in, with, by,
the great lover of Mankind.
