Paradise

In spring…

We are free

Nothing’s old…

The same old way

Photographs…

Make us grieve

Anew…

Winged and ready

Spiral truth…

Never Ending

Shattered

Devastation…

Worse than alone

Misery…

Falling under light

Crying…

From the start

I stand and face it…

Crumple to the floor

Wanting it to end…

Wishing for more

All Things

All Things

It doesn’t matter…

Streaks the sky

Lost…

You found me

I’m so, so tired…

I might just fade

It’s over…

Because of me

I don’t care…

I am free

For like an hour…

Broken destiny

DARK LIGHT

It’s getting harder to see…

Harder to be

Maybe I’ve got it all wrong…

Naive 

But who I am…

Who I’ve always been

Is someone in the light…

Hold my fist

Take the blow in hope…

That you too will see

That this is not the way…

Lonely

Wrong…

Dismayed

FEATHER FALL

I wish I could help you…

Because this is hard

And isn’t fair

There is light all around you…

Within you

In front of you

We all have wings…

And we fly

When we close our eyes

Coolness of water…

Heat of the fire

Standing straight up within it

Yes, this is hard…

It’s best to breathe

Surrender

Forgive your needs

CRYSTAL BLUE EYES

Look in…

We must separate

From the Pain…

The constant shame

Life is good…

If we let it be

If we fight…

Release our strife

We are separate…

From those

And this…

We are in control

We are free

The Third Hour

Resolute…

Though we’ve seen too much

Why do we scream…

Why do we hurt so much

Break the chains…

We are the light

Run as fast as you can…

They will understand

You’re not captured…

You’re free like me

Vision

Posted in Life, Love, Poem, Poetry, Writing on June 1, 2020 by darkjade68

Vision

Visions of better days

Prolonged sadness…

Plagues our way

What we’ve seen…

Been through

We are worn…

Tough

Without the light…

What’s the point

What are we fighting for…

We are

Disjoint…

From happiness

From all that is good…

From all that we need

Misunderstood

Song One

‘Play With Me’

It wasn’t a special case
It wasn’t a place to hide
It wasn’t, oh, hide and seek
It was forgiveness to be

Play with me
And we will see
The light in the dark
That we embark
Play with me

Find a way beneath
A place to beat
A place to beat
Yeah, Yeah
A place to beat

Looking into your embrace
Without thought, without a trace
I fell deep, but hot in pain
I can’t remember your name

Play with me
And we will see
The light in the dark
That we embark
Play with me

Find a way beneath
A place to beat
A place to beat
Yeah, Yeah
A place to beat

Yeah, you and me

Forgive me, my one
My time is done
Your letters are so torturous
Let me be free
But you will be
Always a memory
Fly

Play with me
And we will see
The light in the dark
That we embark
Play with me

Find a way beneath
A place to beat
A place to beat
Yeah, Yeah
A place to beat

A place to beat
A place to beat
Yeah, Yeah
A place to beat

A place to beat
A place to beat
Yeah, Yeah
A place to beat

Play with me
And we will see
The light in the dark
That we embark
Play with me

Find a way beneath

Song Two

‘Lifeless Stories’

Where did my balance go?
Falling to my knees

Suppressed decisions made
Before I cry out please

Leave behind the Devil
In your calloused heart

Forgotten notions hit me
As I fall apart

Wandering, oh
Oh, I am wandering so
In my field of cold

Pardon, my soul
Oh, I am bound to glow
In my field of cold

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Remain, remain, remain
In silence
Cut through, cut through, cut through
The violence
To hear, to hear, to hear,
Words so close to harm

There is a shallow hole
Shaped into my chest

The brokenness is more
Than I can confess

Whisper color into
My heavens cloak

Fill the rainbow
Into my hollow broke

Wandering, oh
Oh, I am wandering so
In my field of cold

Pardon, my soul
Oh, I am bound to glow
In my field of cold

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Remain, remain, remain
In silence
Cut through, cut through, cut through
The violence
To hear, to hear, to hear,
Words so close to harm

Remain in silence
Cut the violence
Remain in silence
Cut the violence
Words so close to harm
Words so close to harm
Words so close to harm

Somehow underground
Beneath the ground you feel
Just need to feel something
with these hollow hands
to feel

Song Three

‘My Sacrifice’

Paralyzed
Sinking into the floor
Reaching for you
Lying there breathless

It took us down
But I could see
The shadow came
Only from inside of me

You don’t know what you are
I forget what you are
I fell low, deep
You thought I was to keep

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

My life, as my sacrifice
My life, as my sacrifice
You walk by, you walk by
I’m complete, but fully gone
Faded from your Love
Faded from you, Love

My life, as my sacrifice
My life, as my sacrifice

I don’t know what I am
I forget what I am
I cut slow, deep
The pain released, in my sleep

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

My life, as my sacrifice
My life, as my sacrifice
You walk by, you walk by
I’m complete, but fully gone
Faded from your Love
Faded from you, Love

My life, as my sacrifice
My life, as my sacrifice

I can’t look now
You’re just too beautiful
Still something is gone in you
Still something is gone in you

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

Your eyes grew into me
Grew into me
Now I can’t see
Since you saved me

Outlined, my face disappears
Outlined, I forget the fear
Outlined, I am dying slowly
Outlined, I will love you, darling
Oh, I will love you, darling
I will love you darling

Song Four

‘Phantom’

You gave me life
But did you steal my soul

Do you believe me?
I still feel you, your heartbeat with mine

The ghost in me

We are not the same
You don’t exist in my brain

But maybe I can heal you
Maybe I can heal too
Maybe we, are secretly,
Meant to be, meant to be
Do you see?

You gave me breath
But am I slowly drowning

Do you believe me
I still hear your, voice inside

We are not the same
I’m still searching for my name

But maybe I can heal you
Maybe I can heal too
Maybe we, are secretly,
Meant to be, meant to be
Do you see?

A reflection of you
That shines through
the heartbreak

I wish that you were just a phantom
I wish that you were just a phantom
I wish that you were just a phantom

But now I see
And your brokenness has broken me

Gave me life, gave me breath
Stole my soul, cannot rest
Save my life, save my breath

Song Five

‘Feeling Of You’

Where the sky is turning grey
and people feed upon other’s hate
one can lose all fate one night.

though one flame didn’t die
we can see in each other’s eyes

half awake
and half asleep

in your arms
like a dream
let us be
here by each other now
now

(Pre-chorus)
The feeling of you
Breaks me in two
The feeling of you
I forget the truth
With the feeling of you
The feeling of you
The feeling of you
The feeling of you

(Chorus)
We don’t scream
The Earth just quakes
You are the taste
I cannot satiate

We don’t scream
The Earth just quakes
You are the taste
I cannot satiate

(Verse 2)
Where the moon is peaking through
And my vision sees only you
One can lose all fate one night
But my heart didn’t die

We can see in each others eyes

Half awake
And half asleep

In your veins
Like a stream
Let us be here
In each other now
Now

(Pre-chorus)
The feeling of you
Breaks me in two
The feeling of you
I forget the truth
With the feeling of you
The feeling of you
The feeling of you
The feeling of you

(Chorus)
We don’t scream
The Earth just quakes
You are the taste
I cannot satiate

We don’t scream
The Earth just quakes
You are the taste
I cannot satiate

Song Six

‘Infected’

You never see it
I can’t describe it
There’s something inside
That you can’t see

And this fire
And this feeling
Is fighting and screaming
to be free

Everybody places me
Into the lost and found
Maybe someday
Maybe someday

Stand my soul, release
Buried underneath
Why are you so infected
Infected

Release me to the
Beautiful scenes
Bait me in with
Your apologize
I forgot my childhood dreams
The voice of winter sings

Everybody places me
Into the lost and found
Maybe someday
Maybe someday

Stand my soul, release
Buried underneath
Why are you so infected
Infected

Crying it all
Becoming untrue
Playing the victim
What can I do?

I don’t mean to, I don’t
I don’t mean to, I don’t
I don’t mean to, I don’t
I don’t mean to, I don’t
I don’t mean to, I don’t
I don’t mean to

Why are you so infected
Infected
Oh, Why are you so infected
Infected
Why are you so infected
Infected

Song Seven

‘Hold You Close’

Holding onto your hand

the season changed above
the colored leaves will bleed
shedding pain from the past
to repair and realize
its not the end this time

I see myself
being pulled in with
the waves into the deep
reaching up for the air
I was lost somewhere

and the stars will hold me up
and point me where you are
my love i’ll hold you close
I will never let go

Song Eight

‘My Severed Life’

I leave the endless sidewalks
Enter me, a world unknown
Oh, oh, oh
I leave this pace, this place behind
Follow me, a world unknown
Oh, oh, oh

Let go, let go, let go
My severed life
Awake to take another day

Let go, let go, let go
My severed life
Awake, awake, awake, awake, awake
Awake, awake, awake, awake, awake
to take, everything from me

My severed life
Endless days
I cannot stay
To fall with you
To follow you
To take, everything from me

My severed life

How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?

My hair falls down, to my knees
My heart is stumbling, with unease
Will I find something asking for my wings?

Something is still missing
Something is still missing

How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?

Oh, Oh!

Let go, let go, let go
My severed life
Awake, awake, awake, awake, awake
Awake, awake, awake, awake, awake
to take, everything from me

My severed life
Endless days
I cannot stay
To fall with you
To follow you
To take, everything from me

My severed life

I scream
I can’t seem to be
accepting of this reality

I scream
I can’t seem to be
accepting of this reality

I scream
I can’t seem to be
accepting of this reality

I scream
I can’t seem to be
accepting of this reality

Please help me

How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?
How broken will I still become?

LIFELESS STORIES

(Lyrics)

Where did my balance go?
Falling to my knees

Suppressed decisions made
Before I cry out please

Leave behind the Devil
In your calloused heart

Forgotten notions hit me
As I fall apart

Wandering, oh
Oh, I am wandering so
In my field of cold

Pardon, my soul
Oh, I am bound to glow
In my field of cold

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Remain, remain, remain
In silence
Cut through, cut through, cut through
The violence
To hear, to hear, to hear,
Words so close to harm

There is a shallow hole
Shaped into my chest

The brokenness is more
Than I can confess

Whisper color into
My heavens cloak

Fill the rainbow
Into my hollow broke

Wandering, oh
Oh, I am wandering so
In my field of cold

Pardon, my soul
Oh, I am bound to glow
In my field of cold

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Sudden lies
To be found
Fables fly around

But within me
There is nothing
But lifeless stories

Remain, remain, remain
In silence
Cut through, cut through, cut through
The violence
To hear, to hear, to hear,
Words so close to harm

Remain in silence
Cut the violence
Remain in silence
Cut the violence
Words so close to harm
Words so close to harm
Words so close to harm

Somehow underground
Beneath the ground you feel
Just need to feel something
with these hollow hands
to feel
