Engulf me in love,
Break me in half,
Only once-more,
Only encore,
Lament time
Archer Mar 2020
We all bow at the end of the show
Thrown flowers strewn about
The old wooden stage floors worn out
They show me the patterns of traffic
The lines between the planks blend
Merge. Wooden trap doors creek
The lights are warm with a yellow glow
They blind us to the masses
The velvety maroon curtains
Smell like characters
The chain smoking detective
Bags under his eyes
Battered housewife
Bloodied and broken
The prince and the princess
Did they find their happy ending
The roar of applause is the only noise
I have known in my head
There is no encore tonight
But this is the best thing
I've ever seen me do

Eloquence has an heir
embrace winter
she has a Sterling
head of hair.
Sara Kellie Aug 2019
Upon finding
I am burdened
with this
glorious purpose
came the stark
realisation
that I must
one day
triumph or fail
and with that,
I awoke.

Kaydee.
It was only a dream.
A dream about life.

Let us all rise for the birthing of Earth's new life
Stirrings from her womb bring forth daffodils,
To have intimate relations with buzzing bees
Stirring wooly heads from their winter cluster,
As the yellow heads Mexican wave with
A warm blustery scented breeze, birds sing with
Renewed gusto, dancing across the garden fence
Making nests, making plans 'cause they just can't
Help but feel born again, so lets have an ovation
Spring is sprung, give me more, encore, encore.

The doppelganger, a former lover
in the streets of burning papers
behind an old tank of grease
found yesterdays memories
wrapped in plastic bottles
a map is written
to find me
again.

Perfect.
No other way to word it.
Her worth lies deeper much behind the stages open curtains.

No one knows the show she hopes will eventually come to an end.  
But then again, the curtain rises but when will it ever end?

your voice lingers,
my hands tremble,
the distance—
so close yet so far.

it was a never-ending passion,
every word you muttered
was another reason for me,
to live on a little longer;
we were chanters—
you're the executioner.

bright lights shone,
your talent shimmers,
your humour;
was the heartwarmer
the stage was brighter
you make heads lighter.

encore, encore, encore,
your presences drugged
the audiences;
and made them want more.

I was lost in thoughts,
as I stood by the railings,
and barriers were formed;
what was the reason again,
that I heard love called?
Attended a James Blunt concert today. I don't really care about what others have to say about him, but it's by far the best concert I had attended.

Regrets: Really should have gotten the front row seat instead of the end row. Probably one of the worst choices I had made in my life.

Picking myself back up
from the floor
Back on my feet
One foot in front
Of the other
I'm learning to walk again
Step by step
I'm learning that I can dance
I promise
I won't mark my arms
Never let another girl
Break my heart
Never let another
Stray me from my path

I won't stop
Until I reach an encore
I want more
Never gonna stop
Until I reach an encore
I want it all
Give me more, give me more
Top of the charts
Yeah I want it all
Not gonna stop until I reach my encore

All I need is to find redemption
For all these failed mistakes
I've found a way to clean the slate
I know now I can refill my plate
Destined to be great
I still haven't figured out my fate
But I'm learning a little every day
And I'm now figuring out
I'm heading the right way
Sorry for all of my complaints
I know not being perfect is okay
Thanks to all of those
who just accept my flaws and faults
This is who I am
I really hope you understand

I won't stop
Until I reach an encore
I want more
Never gonna stop
Until I reach an encore
I want it all
Give me more, give me more
Top of the charts
Yeah I want it all
Not gonna stop until I reach my encore

I promise
I won't create any more scars
I'm learning to trust in love
And I don't mean the relationship thing
I mean love,
straight from the heart
The one that accepts you
for who you are
And I've been laying all alone
In the dark trying to hold on
And now a light is burning bright
And I'm starting to read
in between the lines
It says everything's
going to be alright
Yeah everything's
going to be just fine

I won't stop
Until I reach an encore
I want more
Never gonna stop
Until I reach an encore
I want it all
Give me more, give me more
Top of the charts
Yeah I want it all
Not gonna stop until I reach my encore
