The Awakening

Standard

I was blind, stuck deep inside this cage where I confide
Overlooked, never took a second to open my eyes
But you were here, I felt your warmth, just could not tell
That you were the one I sought, so I fell deeper still.

I was stuck in a dark place, you brought me out of the maze

Your hazel eyes, take me to the lush forest of your soul
When I’m kissing you, I can taste the sweet spring on your tongue.
You’re skin’s on mine and your heat is turning me on
We’re so close we are one, but we’re not close enough
And now I can’t breathe it’s like I’ve been drowning in my sleep
This is my awakening.

Acting shy, but I was high on happiness
Held a cry, as our lips collide, it was our first kiss.
With a sigh, we said goodbye, I watched you drive away
Try not to choke on the three words I did not say

I was lost in space, you were the shooting star guiding my way

Your hazel eyes, take me to the lush forest of your soul
When I’m kissing you, I can taste the sweet spring on your tongue.
You’re skin’s on mine and your heat is turning me on
We’re so close we are one, but we’re not close enough
And now I can’t breathe it’s like I’ve been drowning in my sleep
This is my awakening.

I didn’t think I could let anyone else in
Not when there was so much to explain
But when you take my hand you melt all the worries away
Even when you’re gone you’re the one I taste.

I was lost at sea, you came sailing after me

Your hazel eyes, take me to the lush forest of your soul
When I’m kissing you, I can taste the sweet spring on your tongue.
You’re skin’s on mine and your heat is turning me on
We’re so close we are one, but we’re not close enough
And now I can’t breathe it’s like I’ve been drowning in my sleep
This is my awakening.

 

 

 

Rabbit Hole

Standard

There’s a humming in my brain
A pounding in my chest
A ringing in my ear
From the voice that knows me best

And your eyes
Pull me into my demise.

Like glowing embers they burn
Around the center of gravity
Your black hole it pulls
Me into insanity
Here I go
Down the rabbit hole

There’s a scream inside my soul
A tie on my tongue
Heat rises in my bones
An alarm goes off in my lungs

And your eyes
Pull me into my demise

Like glowing embers they burn
Around the center of gravity
Your black hole it pulls
Me into insanity
Here I go
Down the rabbit hole

Can I be saved?
Can I escape?
From which vile should I drink?
Fill the glass to the brink
Will I ever wake from this dream?
Your illusions are so cunning

And your eyes
Pull me into my demise

Like glowing embers they burn
Around the center of gravity
Your black hole it pulls
Me into insanity
Here I go
Down the rabbit hole

Sigh Of Death

Standard

I looked deep into his crystal eyes and knew it was the end.

With his warm, strong hands wrapped  around my neck I could hear my heartbeat  echoing within my eardrums. It slowed itself to a dull hum as the black crept into the corners of my vision. Not once did either of us break eye-contact. Not even to blink.

The deep abyss of his pupils seemed to widen as if  to pull me in.

I was already in.

My hands loosely held onto his thick wrists, not even bothering to struggle. What use was there? I knew from the start he would be the one. That this  would be  my fate.

His hands grew tighter and  tighter like an anaconda wrapping itself around  my body. I went numb under the pressure. The black was everywhere by then; masking all from my vision. All but those eyes. Just as uneasy to read as they had always been, they were hard as stone.

My heart was no longer a wild drum of  fear  and panic but a single strum of  surrender. And as the last note  played,  his  open lips covered mine as he inhaled my sigh of  death, breathing  in my soul.

Will You Let Me In?

Standard

How deep are your waters?
How wide is your sea?
How warm is the beach
Where you and I meet?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How how high is your sky?
How white are your clouds?
How dry is the land
Where you and I touch?

I want to fly in your eyes
I wan to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How dark is your space?
How bright are your stars?
How far must I go
Until I’m in your arms?

I want to burn in your chest
Take a rocket into your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in at all?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to fly through your eyes
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Into Your Hurricane

Standard

My heart was swept into your hurricane
Whirling,
Whirling,
Prospering.
My body got tugged into your storm
Raining,
Raining,
Growing.
Your lightning awakens my heart
Striking,
Striking,
Electrifying.
Your wind stirs something within my soul
Glowing,
Glowing,
Consuming.

Not Ready To Give Up (2008 Re-Write)

Standard

Original written 6/30/08:
You flood my mind
With your cruel design
You threw my life
Way off line
You stole my soul
And went away to your paradise
I’m ganna find away out of this hole

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up.

The rain falls in the middle of winter
While I’m at the bus stop
I can see my breath
In the January air
And can feel the harsh wind in my hair
It doesn’t feel like I’m going to win
But that doesn’t mean I’m going to give in
I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up.

No, I’m not going to back down
No, you can’t get me to turn around
I will never give in the the Devil’s wish
I’m not going to miss
My chance to live

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up. (x2)

I’m not ready to give up.

I’m not ready to give up

And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.

So you’ve got me in your cage
What is it for?
There’s got to be a reason
You’re so adored
Just because you’ve got it made
Doesn’t mean I wont get in your way

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.

No, I’m not going to back down
No, you can’t get me to turn around
I will never give in
I’m not going to miss
My chance to live.

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.(x2)

I’m not ready to give up

Still In Love With You (Summer 2008 re-write)

Standard

This was the first of my summer 2008 re-writes. That summer I wrote a ton of songs so I thought it would be fun to go back and touch them up a bit.

2008 Version:

I know I shouldn’t,
But you keep me under your current
I didn’t mean to fall
I didn’t want to at all
But I let my heart win
And I just gave in
You stole my soul
And now the world around me is so cold

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you

You took my heart
Tore it apart
Why are you holding me down
Where I’ll surely drown?
Was it all a lie?
Did you mean to call?
Death by waterfall.

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you

You drew me in like a current in the wind
You had me convinced you seemed so perfect
But you ripped my heart
Making heart-breaking an art.

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you (x2)

No matter what you do
Or the pain you put me through
I still love you

~~~~~~~~

Now for the touched up version:

I know I shouldn’t
But you keep me in your current
I didn’t mean to fall
I didn’t want to at all
But I let my heart win
My logic gave in
Now I have made a mess of things…

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you

Why are you holding me down
Where I will surely drown?
Was it all a lie?
Did you mean to call?
Why do I always fall
For your parlor tricks
You’d think by now I would learn
You can’t be trusted

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you

You drew me in like a current in the wind
You had me convinced, you seemed so perfect
Wish I had seen the devil’s eyes behind your own
A little too late now I’m already in the rabbit hole.

[chorus]
It was a stormy night
And I was shaking in fright
I let you take my hand
I let you kiss my lips
And I fell again (and again and again)
Your eyes made me give in
I don’t know what to do…
‘Cause I’m still in love with you

lucky for me i realized i was never in love with this guy :p hope you enjoyed!!

Another Mothers Day Poem

Standard

You have always been there to bandage up a cut knee,

Even now when I am nineteen.

The tears you cry

Are my own

The things you feel

I feel in my soul.

You always gave me a push

When I felt like a wuss.

You would pick me up when I was down

The thought of you not being around

Tears my heart to threads.

If you were ever gone, I would be one heck of a mess.

You are my best-friend

I cherish each and every moment we spend.

No matter if we agree or disagree

No matter if we’re laughing or fighting

I couldn’t love you any more

Have a great day, Mother. ❤

 

I love you mom, happy mothers day!
And happy mothers day to all the Moms out there!!
