Angel of Love

Standard

In the shadows of twilight, I casted flames to seal my soul from the loneliness of pain, enticing a contract with the devil. 

Then you emerged to snuff the flames with your light and love, with barely enough seconds left to spare my heart and soul, you are my angel of love. 

My Beat

IMG_4777
Standard

Through the years

My heart traveled without a beat

Searching for sound

Hearing only the dead silence of the wind,

As the decades passed

Failing to reveal promise

My heart rebelled

Leaving me

-Malnourished,

Brittle,

Lacking strength,

It broke all the rules

Singing glory to booze

Tangled in all the wrong drugs

Nothing filled the void

Nothing charged my soul

Nothing rose to the occasion or delusion of love,

Then off in the distant

My heart heard a faint beat

It echoed through a breeze

I felt your name

It engraved me

And tattooed my heart quickly,

Magnetically I flew towards the echo

At the quickest speed

Traveling through the darkest dead thicket,

In a dreamlike trance

Bleeding your scent

Musically and fearlessly whimsical

Dancing to an erotic beat

I needed to savor your soul

In reality,

At last

Found

You and I

After an eternity of death in love

Music and lyrics

United

Addicted,

In your arms

Sharing your heart

Your soul

Shake

Standard

Hey hey hey
Hey
You got me thinking
Am I in heaven
or some kind of hell

I’m spinning on your axle
Chasing your love
Trying to catch up
I want to drink you in

Your love is an earthquake
Cracking my earth
You are falling-in
I’m covered in your juice

Shake Shake Shake shake
Shake Shake Shake Shake
Shake
Your poison-is my friend

My world is upside down
I’m so confused
Your venom
It tastes – so good

Your love is an
earthquake
Cracking my earth
You are falling-in
I’m covered in your
juice

Shake Shake Shake shake
Shake Shake Shake Shake
Shake
Your poison-is my friend

You got me singing in hell
You got me chasing the sun
You got me baby
I’m your glowing moon
Lettin you in

Looking In

Standard
I’m just an outsider
Looking in
Viewing as a spectator 
I don’t truly fit in
But I watch
I try to learn
Try to understand 
While I stand outside
I measure myself up
Make small notes
Where I can improve
I try to patiently wait my turn
Each second that drifts by
I secretly start
To give up

Damaged

Standard
The conversation screamed at me
Shouting
-I’m nothing 
-Your dues are not paid
-You have no place here
-No blood ties
-No marker
-Step in line
Play in repeat
Over and over
Slamming me
My gestures
My love
My respect 
They hold no merit
I am nothing more
Than a loving fool
Waiting in line
Doing my time
Falling deeper
In a shit hole

Misunderstood

Standard
I can’t cry 
I can’t cry
I can’t cry enough
The words tied to each tear
Or speak each feeling ripping me to shreds
You can’t walk in my shoes
They won’t fit
My burdens to bear
Leave me all alone
With no one to share
Not one to bleed part of me
No one to know the size of band aid
In which to cover me

Chased by Fear

Standard

Bliss kisses my forehead

And I wonder why?
Challenges grip my soul
And I understand
-why
Life would be tender
If pieces fit together
Ah but life is scattered
And I must learn to strategize each piece alone 
-and as a whole 
Yet I ponder
Each pain
Each wonder
Each potential play
Wondering what outcome awaits-
Today
The light of positivity
Trailed by fear 
Chipping away
Trying to dull the shine
Faster I run
Faster
Faster
Shine brighter
Shine brighter
I tell myself
Reflect the fear with glare
It’s getting dark
-in here
