She took my hand, I reached for hers,
But packages expire.
I signed my name in bleeding black,
Distracted by a fire.

I studied her place that flickered, and danced to most of songs.
Observing as an eskimo,
Oh, stripping coats along.

She took my right, she lent her left,
We bear this trade as fair.
I sold some skins, and broke for bikes,
But lady shares the air.

Cigar, the smoke, ballooned the mouth;
I puffed a cloud content.
She put me out, my zenith gone,
I huffed her secret scent.

"Aw, come with me my boy of mine,"
(As if I had a choice)
"I'll take your side and hold our cup"
-Those valleys in her voice

She dragged 'her hands' along with her,
My cheek and body bruised.
The scarlet halls preceded stairs,
Sangria walls ensued.

We came up to a room so red,
It bled with love, confused-
I was.
"Bring your heart to bed", she said.
"Bring here, my heart, with you."

So close we layed, our toes they twined,
Our clothes aligned like rain.
She said "I'm yours", and me, her "mine".
I softly, said the same.

If only life was bliss
If only I kept your kiss
If only life did not change
If only it wasn't so strange
If only you were still here
to you, I felt so near.
If only I wasn't so down
How can I change this frown?
If only we kept our words
If only we could fly like the birds

If only it weren't so lonely
I'd be by your side
Our two hearts would collide
If only you were here
Everything would feel so clear

All these silly indecisive decisions
Weigh on this troubled mind
Always seems to be complicated situations
Processing through this conscious conscience
Can't seem to digest all this information
Straight from the page to my brain
All I feel is disconnection
From this interjected rejection
Gotta break free of this intersection
Give me the will to pick the right direction

If only I had your touch
If only everyone loved so much
If only I could hear
If only I felt no fear
If only you felt me there
If only love was in the air
If only friends pulled through
If only I put my arms around you

If only it weren't so lonely
I'd be by your side
Our two hearts would collide
If only you were here
Everything would feel so clear

All these silly indecisive decisions
Weigh on this troubled mind
Always seems to be complicated situations
Processing through this conscious conscience
Can't seem to digest all this information
Straight from the page to my brain
All I feel is disconnection
From this interjected rejection
Gotta break free of this intersection
Give me the will to pick the right direction

If only I felt alive
If only I could find the drive
If only you had my heart
If only we weren't so far apart
If only we took a glance
If only we took a chance
If only we were all we could be
If only I didn't give you my soul
Then I wouldn't be stuck in this dark hole
IF only I didn't miss
If only you never gave me your kiss
If only it was so real
if only you turned the wheel
If only...
If only it weren't so lonely
I'd be by your side
Our two hearts would collide
If only you were here
Everything would feel so clear

All these silly indecisive decisions
Weigh on this troubled mind
Always seems to be complicated situations
Processing through this conscious conscience
Can't seem to digest all this information
Straight from the page to my brain
All I feel is disconnection
From this interjected rejection
Gotta break free of this intersection
Give me the will to pick the right direction

Riiver Ends Aug 31

Every time you leave
It feels like my whole world comes crashing down
There are certain things I adore
Like talking with you for hours upon end
It's never enough for me
I never want to stop talking to you
I never want to let you go
There are certain things that I adore
I'm certain that I'm yours
I adore you, I adore you
I never want to let you go
I want to be able to reach out, and feel
Feel you grab my hand
Feel you intertwine our fingers
I want to look up
And see you
See you smiling back at me
I want more than a mental image
I want you here
There are certain things that I adore
I adore you, I adore you

mildly based off of James Arthur's song "Certain Things"

Give me the sunrise
Give me a new dawn
Let the sun soak into my skin
I'm so optimistic
A future shining so bright 

Give me the setting 
of the sun
rising over the ocean

Let me feel the heat

In this good feeling of emotion

I'm starting to pave my way

To the place, I've been trying to create

The one that is filled with serenity

The one that gives me the inner peace

That I need 
and wanted so badly

I'm burying my past
Don't you dare allocate your allegations
It's time to move on
Time to look up
I'm tired of drowning in the sorrows
I'm tired of this smile I borrowed
I want to feel the warmth
Of happiness inside
I want that in my life

The sad memories
Are buried six feet under
I don't want to feel another
I held onto so much doubt
The pills wouldn't even drown it out
I had to work so hard
Just to be able to let go of my past
They say that is what makes your future
But I'll be damned if I'm judged by a jury
I'll be damned if I let life do that to me
I was hit and kicked while I was down
But I've got skin made of armor now
And I'm happy with where I'm at
That is something no one can take
And now I'm somebody
who doesn't easily break

I'm burying my past
Don't you dare allocate your allegations
It's time to move on
Time to look up
I'm tired of drowning in the sorrows
I'm tired of this smile I borrowed
I want to feel the warmth
Of happiness inside
I want that in my life

I've taken every task
Thrown my way
I've given all the blood
I can give
I've said every word
To band aid that hurt
I've got scars that show
But they're just a reflection
Of who I used to be
I'm starting to look at life
with more positively
I'm starting to feel more secure
with who I am
I'm starting to feel happy within myself
that is something that has been
a long time coming
Now my world isn't crumbling
Before my eyes
Now I've seen hurt heal with time

I'm burying my past
Don't you dare allocate your allegations
It's time to move on
Time to look up
I'm tired of drowning in the sorrows
I'm tired of this smile I borrowed
I want to feel the warmth
Of happiness inside
I want that in my life

Don't know why I'm seeking your approval
This feeling is so unusual
You and I are classified as unsuitable
She struck fast with her lightning eyes
She could see my torn soul, from the outside
Now she's pulling me apart piece, by piece
Reopening old wounds 
That took so long to heal
And everything just feels surreal
The ledge I was standing on wasn't stable
I'm not sure if I'm able or not
Able to reach for the sky above
I keep trying to believe in love
when I just started to get high 
Something rips my wings from my back
Then I'm brought crashing down to earth
then reality starts to surface
that these make believe feelings
Just don't suit me
us two just weren't meant to be.

I ain't no superhero
looking for a fight to win
But I'll try to ease your suffering
I ain't no superhero
flying around town
looking for problems
to take on
But I'll try to ease your suffering

It's all the little things
that makes you complete
It's all the little things
that make ends meet
It's all the little things
(Yeah, Yeah)

Can I take your pain away?
Can I take your pain away?
Hold on hope, hold on hope
why my heart bleeds for you.
All that I can do
is take this pain from you.
Oh give me the time
give me some light
to show you everything
is going to be alright

It's all the little things
that makes you complete
It's all the little things
that make ends meet
It's all the little things
(Yeah, Yeah)

Let the glitter cease the skies
while we watch the sunrise
so put your hand in mine
move closer to me,
while we make a sweet memory.
Sweetheart I'll never let you fall apart,
Sweetheart I'll never let you fall apart.
And we will live this life
Until we reach the end of time.
Will let the glitter cease the skies
while we watch the sunrise

It's all the little things
that makes you complete
It's all the little things
that make ends meet
It's all the little things
(Yeah, Yeah)

No regrets, so reach out your hands
we have no regrets
so reach out your hands
Oh come on, come and grab on
We will pick ourselves back up
every time we fall down
I ain't no superhero flying around town
So baby come on, reach out your arms
And I'll take you by the hand
as we try to make all the little things
make ends meet
I'll try and ease your suffering

It's all the little things
that makes you complete
It's all the little things
that make ends meet
It's all the little things
(Yeah, Yeah)
