SINGING MAXIMS

Drawn to all things destructive. Dreams are where you lose footing of reality, And stability is only found in life when nightmares come alive. I won't judge you until you reveal yourself to me. We sit around looking at others wishing we could be like them, growing in jealousy and hatred, never wondering that maybe …

HAVE YOU EVER SAID A REAL GOODBYE

I’ve always wanted to know if the birds ever felt free inside, Do they gaze above into the stars each night as my eyes do? How many places have their feet touch that the birds didn’t want to stay in? But the moment I step near them, they fly away in fear. And how many …

THE WORLD HURTS

The child says to the mother "The world hurts". When the mother asks why, the child says, "I don’t see any possibility to be loved, For they will judge me by their eyes and they will not look within, I have too many imperfections; their deductions won’t go so far before they conclude I’m unfit …

CONTRACURRENT

My soul is a violin; it cries for a song to come true and bleeds out an abundance of suffering, a prayer to GOD that I can truly swim above the current till my last breath, like a halo cover me and play softly high up in the air ascending to heaven where I may …

WAVES BEATING AGAINST THE TEMPLE

It’s sad to know for a lonely girl like me that the music becomes the vehicle for your emotions and memories. I’m spun out and caught in a silk web, These songs don’t need me to work for joy, I don’t even need to open my eyes, They carry my soul and I believe again …

READY TO PAY MY DEBT

The eyes that have seen the truth aren't pretty. And the sky starts to reveal it’s colours in the stillness of twilight. I don't know how some sleep at night knowing there are so many secrets unknown, That some have died in terror and may be right now in danger, That a million miles away, …

LIVING LIKE ANIMALS

I have been locked up inside these walls of physical and mental design. I have watched the seasons pass behind the glass window of one empty room. The moments that I stepped outside of the door, I hoped that I would have the chance to live like innocence again. But this is a hopeless dream …

WHAT I KNOW NOW, SHOULD’VE KNOWN THEN

WHAT I KNOW NOW, SHOULD’VE KNOWN THEN I’ve always seen the world in a pessimistic light. Well that’s what everyone would say if they asked me how I saw things. I seemed to believe that I was pessimistic, and thing is, I didn’t care because the way I was seeing the world was how it …

LEAVE MY BODY

LEAVE MY BODY Like clear water. Cutting through rocks. Paving a path. Never-ending, I continue flowing, Never-stopping, Consuming fire, Afraid of the cold, For when I freeze, I do not move, I barely breathe, but despair, holding onto a rope, called hope. Waiting for the sun, to melt me from, this icy shell. When spring …
