The anatomy of ones heart seems complicated and intense.
The valves and the tubes and the scars from time taking its toll.
The blood and the veins helping to keep one alive.
The memories it holds and the heartbreak it endures and thrives from over and over again.

But the anatomy of my heart is simple.
It’s filled with trees billowing and waving in the wind.
It has salt water from the bluest oceans flowing through the veins keeping me afloat with summer dreams.
It has been slowly and faster in the throes of passion and in the woes of pain.
It has shown me that through adventure and wonder I can keep myself alive.

So tell me... how does the anatomy of your heart look?

i move thru rolling hills clothes caked from dust

a pilgrim with no master and
no one to trust

for love of the art dictates
my style and stance

fluid in the movements of hells
windstaff

kitana at my side in my hand sacred
scrolls

the blade reaps the souls words clash with frontal lobe

i journey the countryside sunrise to
sunset

thru bloodshed from foes neck i remain unchecked

suspect at large down this lone
path i march


throat parched from dry wind i remain unhealed

scarred from the years i dodged
enemy spears

and nights i lost love from the one
i dried tears

no one to swear allegiance to while i roam presestined

and strengthened as my wisdom remains unquestioned

left in the wreckage of this rite of
passage

casualties and threats flee
i remain a savage
a verse

Wandering this lonely terrain
Trying to escape the nightmare I live
I yearn to fly away from pain
The ghostly love you give

Trust has become a scarcity
In our darkest hour
Someone wise once told me
Solitude will grant you power

I have no one, no belongings, no home
Reduced to a vagrant without your embrace
Feet and emotions fated to roam
Until they find their purpose and place
I feel so directionless by myself

Roaming into a scarlet galaxy
Neptunus whales flying above
The elder fates their riders are
Approaching near an eerie gleam
Enormous stalactites shimmering azure
Its core lies into my unconscious ocean
Colored universal textiles mingled
Rays connecting the pillars
A way for the planets to touch each other
Transcendental energies our pavillion
Your sigh resonates into the other side

thank you
you helped me find the truth
you were the life of me
whole life beautiful

when the fire burns out , I know it ain't pretty

I know you claim to hate
but that's not in my way
cause you've been part of this great change

how far ive came
and who ive got to give thanks
for making me feel better about this life I don't wish to remain ',

watch the flames burn down
cause it is its own beauty

but baby one day we're gone be back

i'll stay near for when you give me the clear

we had fear from this journey
but thank yeeuus

I didn't mess your plan up
from us meeting up
always wanted the best for both of us
if it meant going opposite ways
I wouldn't be okaye but know ill be able to fight
keep myself upright ; least pretend im alright

gone laigh at this **** one day
life has it amazing ways
to keep the flame from running to the ground
we're gonna rise from this
it worked out for both routes

cause I cant lose you now
youre already far out
try not to completely disappear
I care
took some lyrics from a song but switched it up and it was only a few lines. the rest is all mine. to my flame soul , ill be here till there no more world to roam .
he boil    
beauty and
wild beast
only to
circle station
here with
rain and
there supplant
Babylon in
quest of
Stephen the
pigeon"s pain
in air
that christianly
will induce
his call
of life

Where will I end up? Somewhere
Will I be lost when I get there? Lost
Where am I suppose to be? There
Will it take all that I've got? Cost
Will I know when I am there? Yes
But should I continue? Go
What will i do? Impress
Do I ever settle for less? No
Who will be there? You
And with me? New
Adventures for all the new? True
A new life that will lead to what? Pursue
Pursue things that lead me where? Home
But what should I continue to do? Roam

I'm just another stranger that no one knows
Call me a drifter going with the flow
I'm just another one, just.. Another one
All remains the same when said and done
Just pass by
I'm another face in the crowd
Don't try to figure it out
I may be alone but free to roam
Its alright, no worries tonight
Im not lost but im hard to find just lookin for somthing more this time
Another gamble
Trying my luck
Off the beaten path
I won't give up

(if)
your (darkness)
(continues) to dance around you
i (will) find its rhythm and synch to that tune
+if (you)r stars refuse to quit falling as you roam
i will (swim) across oceans to catch them
and i will take (back) your light
(to) guide us back
**(me)
if darkness continues, will you swim back to me?
