Firefly

Standard

I was realizing today that it has been 4 months since I have been out of the dark tunnel and into the light. I thought it was about time I shared that journey, into the right kind of love, with everyone.

I am going crazyFirefly
Somebody please save me from myself
I don’t want to make the same mistakes
I want to get it right
This time.
Because you deserve better than the hurt I bring
I want to keep you smiling
Maybe it’s best you stay away from me
But that’s not what my heart is asking.
Yeah, baby I am bad news
But I guess the choice is up to you…
Oh no, I am drowning
Somebody please save me from myself.
I know I am all screwed up
I don’t want to get you caught
In my mess
It’s either you set me free
Or get locked in this cage with me
Is it really worth the chance?
Because you deserve better than the hurt I bring
I want to keep you smiling
Maybe it’s best you stay away from me
But that’s not what my heart is asking.
Yeah, baby I am bad news
But I guess the choice is up to you…
I am going crazy
Are you going to be the one to save me?
Are you the lantern glowing in the dark night?
A firefly?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This was their response:

Follow me here, there’s no need to fear
I’ll guide you through the night
And when your hope is low, don’t let it show
It’s just one small moment in time
Let that moment end tonight
I’ll be your firefly
Together we can burn bright.

Many hearts are caught in this game we’ve played

But tonight, that will all change.

The second-hand ticks-ticks away

But the minutes take hours, the hours take days.

When I see you tonight, when we meet face to face

How will you be feeling, what will you say?

Will your eyes dance like a pair of flames, or will their light fade away?

Our hearts linger, together, in the shade

Intertwined by the sins we’ve made

And I know things cannot continue this way

But as night slowly follows day

I wonder which heart is bound to break.

 

I am Winter

Standard

It’s winter again
The cold has rolled in
The frost has started and
The ice took my heart again.
I am frozen
I am cold
I can’t feel
I don’t see the point any more.
The snow is sticking now
It twinkles like fallen stars
But it melts at your touch
Because it was empty from the start.
I am hallow
Wind blows through me
I can’t feel
So I’m done pretending.
As dead as leafless trees
I stand with a slight desire within me
To live long enough for spring
When maybe I can begin blossoming
But as the night carries on
With no sign of day
I give up waiting for dawn
And just accept the gray.

 

Take Me Away

Standard

Swing, swing
Take me away
Push back and forth
Higher, higher!
Swing, swing
Lift me from this seat
Bring me to places I’ve never seen
Further and further away
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

Swing, swing
The possibilities
You bring
To me with your chains
Creaking under my weight
You take me to a place
Where nothing else exists
But this tranquility
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

girl on swing by wise purple joda

And my worries fade behind me
Like faerie dust in the sand
I clutch at the clouds with my hand
Oh, you take me to places better than I can imagine

Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

A Stressed Poetic Vent

Standard

There’s so many

Thoughts and feelings

I’m experiencing

Right now

And I’m trying my damnest

To get them all out

On to paper

And into words

Truth be told

I have no idea what’s going on

In my head

In my heart

I want to blame it on others

But for what?

Why am I so stressed

And upset?

Does it have anything to do with you

Or am I just imagining it?

That must be the answer

That it’s all in my mind

Because when I talk to  you

All is fine.

Then what is this panic in my lungs

The frustration

I am numb

with?

Is it all fabricated?

Why am I so dramatic,

What is wrong with me,

What is the source of these feeling

That are pilling into me?

Just write them down

Write them down

Let them all out

Once I am done I’ll have nothing to worry about.

But what if they don’t go away?

What if they lay inside

And start to decay

Rotting my insides

Day after day

How the hell

Am I supposed to live this way?

It’s Okay

It’s Okay

It’s all in your mind.

It’s Okay

It’s Okay

You just need a long night

rest

A good,  rested sleep

That’ll melt away the stress

The grime,

The death,

Be gone

Be gone

And never come back.
