How could learning how to let someone love you be so personal
When its like the rain?
Everyone feels it fall
But not everyone feels it the same

Some take no notice and move along
Some hear the rain falling on the roof as a song

Some see the lighting before it strikes
Some hear only thunder
But still others...

Some scurry for cover

And still others
Still there's others that dance

So howl at me wind if you would like
Bend the limbs of the trees that line the streets
Move swiftly as you must
Soft upon my skin
I've been waiting long before
The storm ever began

And I've been dancing ever since
I've been dancing
Its been too long since I had an onion ring. I like the big thick ones that are fresh cut. Flaky yet crispy, the crisper the better. And I like when they are fresh out of the fryer and very greasy. Maybe some thousand island dressing as dipping sauce. Mmmmm sounds delicious. I could sure go for some about right now
Torin 7d
Science explains why we bruise
And even tries explaining why we hurt
How can I make it through tomorrow?
There will be no flowers blooming
Not in the spring

I guess its just metaphorical suicide
Reason doesn't come in to play
Just agony
The recollections of when I knew the sun would rise
And forgiveness
The squall of it all

What would wisdom tell me?
Both hands
I grab so tight I can't hold
Even wisdom won't help me now
As I delve deeper into darkness than I knew one could go
What would the future tell me?

As it dawns on me
Like the sun from the east
The world is flat
The heavens are a blanket
And seals are on every one of the stars
Unlatched but if he says they are

How can I accept?

But to know

I am strong
But not strong
Strong enough to accept
Not strong enough to control

Still these bruises on my heart
These bruises
There is not a science on earth to explain
The pain I feel right now
Torin 7d
When the day comes its surprising the sun still rises

Well, in the east as it has always done
When even in the morning I see the sun set

You have been warned of the times ahead
Again and again
Though that voice has been silent for some time
You never forget

And a new law spreads the land

A law that demands you be alone
Only the lost and ****** may live
A law that demands you deny the only truth you've known
Demands you submit

Lightning bolts shot from heavens
As the dark one moves in shadows
Controlling the interest of earth
You are not of the the earth
But instead chosen from out of the earth

There's only one thing to save us
But there's war
And rumors of war
And famine
And earthquakes
And natural disaster at a scale of nothing before

Would you

Would you submit

And deny the only thing you know can save you?
Torin 7d
Only creatures of our own condition
I dont even sing any more
Only silence
Not even the voices that reach through the void
The void is too large
Not even the glimmer that is hope reaches
All is silence
I've loved everything beautiful in this world
I have loved the ugliest....

How quickly the end can come to both
As quick as the night
When the stars are thrown from heaven
And all is darkness
This is one day promised to us all
But I feel it now
Feel it in the depths of my soul

And there's no easy answer
There's no answer
Theres nothing at all
Just you
And a song

A song you can never hear again

And all you are

Now it is winter
When everything is so big we cannot overcome
I don't even know what to want
Not that it matters anymore
I can only hope there is an angel still
Watching over me
How much im needing now
It is winter

A wall as many miles wide
To cover up the sun
We all see clouds
We don’t see silver linings
The storm and rain
The window panes are tearing at their hinges
I’m sitting at a window
Watching clouds coming in
Closing the horizon
And I’ve opened up my eyes

We need the rain
Days of old we prayed for rain
Those holy men, temple priests and shaman
Sacrifice was made for rain
Our crops may grow
And yield a holy harvest
That with the love of god
This next year will be better than the last
Our thirst may quench
Our hearts find love
And I’ve opened up my eyes

I was seven
Sitting in a sandbox
Playing with words

And a kid would scream
"Tag, you're it"
And I would bleed
Because I was

I was drunk
Delivering my daily diatribe
About symbolism, and feeling, and energy, and


And the cop would pull me over
Because I was driving in two lanes
Talking to a ghost
Who couldn't understand

I told him
"I've been waiting for you,
And I didn't even know it"

Mr authority who I deplore
Was inspired by the poet
He let me go
Just like I did before

And later I thought
How senseless it really was
To be sensible
