An innocuous smile, one that touched the hands of Time–slowed it down like the graceful of curtains closure on an exhausted evening
My heart e s o r like a helpless leaf that died a tree, descended into the Unknown of departing from being a l o n e to being Someone
(Love at first sight was such a s t u p i d thing, till I saw you)
An innocuous smile, one that touched the abyss of Loneliness–sobered it up like the scenic of the night's eyes tranquilities on a lethargic morning
You smiled at me Such a benevolent smile that paid my debt of helplessness More than just a subtle indicator of authenticity or a shadow of happiness You smiled at me Such a moment that you and I share, one that no one could ever take away
More than just a simple smile, But one that bridges my heart with yours to cross this path of Loneliness To discover what it means to be in Love
You say please please see me see my soul and see what I can do please see me and say that I am loveable I won’t believe a word but it will comfort me briefly I say please please admire my doing even though I know no matter how much praise I will get it won’t help me to believe that any of it is true I know this but still try to ignore it a life long pattern a pattern that has shaped my life it is difficult to change it the need for approval is so great it’s power so overwhelming a force that can not be stopped easily and so I seek false recognition by the many ways our culture allows me to begging for likes like a billion souls out there trying to fill a void that seems unbearable having found no cure I am only left with posting these words
When all else is gone, When I can’t hear the song, And I must close my eyes, Something inside cries “It’s me! I’m here! In a place without fear, I’m the voice of love, Sweet as heaven above. Love is me, the real me.” Me. Really.
So this is what inspiration feels like: When it's come time to take a hike, And every fork is a new road to take Every choice is another path to make Every word is another leaf to rake Every thought is free - What a wonderful gift for me.
The mind is strong, so No thoughts are wrong Or out of place; Fear bites no grace.
To those who choose just love: Your light outshines the dove; 'Cos for all that you may know, You still make room for worlds to grow.
You're welcome to join, This ride needs no coin; If you really want to touch the sky, If every song in your soul screams to fly, Leave what you think and know at the door To go somewhere you've never been before.
I know you're scared to take the chance; Thus the game sets the stage, But take the plunge and learn the dance; You'll finally find that forgotten page.
There's something absent in your days; And so we struggle through the maze, Finding other ways to play, Just to bite back at the gray.
Not *** nor drugs nor wealth Can ever bring true health; The only lasting way is to be yourself, And let your life ring true. Until you do, There's something missing, and it's you.
