Eve

20111224-222508.jpg
Just another eve
Another star
Another night
To paint our lives
Across the canvas
Of the seconds passing by

Just another eve
Another thought
Another dream
To tuck away
Under the covers
Of a constellated sky

Just another eve
Another smile
Another tear
To fill the ocean
Of our lonesome
Sort of regal mysteries

Just another eve
Another heart
Another beat
To change the course of
Our tomorrow
If tonight you can believe

Mind/Machine

20111130-012651.jpg
Dark–dwelling inside of your eyes
Cold and unfeeling disguise
Is this the way you decide
Our future?

Dark–just like your arrogant mind
Whirring like gears at the grind
Is this the way you decide
What we do here?

Break all of your wires and
Take all these desires you
Fight, holding to power but
I don’t need your vintage of

Hate–or is it just how you
Think? All your emotions
Erased as the machines have
Replaced your senses

Blank–nothing computes in your
Brain. What is there left here to
Say? You cannot process my
Way of dreaming

Wake–make your way back to a
Place we can recover this
Face you manufactured to
Save composure

Break all of your wires and
Take all these desires you
Fight, holding to power but
I don’t need your style of

Hate–or is it just how you
Think? All your emotions
Erased as the machines have
Replaced your senses

Dream For You

Being alive will always
Come with circumstances we can’t change
These bitter nights will always
Come with chances for a brighter day
Sometimes the fight will take us
Far away from where we want to be
But it’s alright to lose your
Focus for a moment if you need

I will dream for you
And believe in bigger things
You don’t have to make it through
I will bear you on my wings

When your hope is gone
And the world is wrong
Let your heart be calm
I will dream for you

We all need something that is
Far too large for us to do alone
We all need someone who can
Find us when we lose our way back home
We all need dreams that help us
See the world like no one else before
We all need keys that let us
Open up our deepest inner doors

I will dream for you
And believe in bigger things
You don’t have to make it through
I will bear you on my wings

When your hope is gone
And the world is wrong
Let your heart be calm
I will dream for you

For Rising

Look to the clouds
Leave the ground
Take your place above the earth

Nothing here can hold you down
You were made to take the wing

Enlist the breeze
Find release
Take your place above the earth

See your purpose from the air
Put your faith in better things

Just as the birds defy the dirt
And are not afraid to fall
You must climb beyond this hurt
You must move beyond these walls

Nothing here can hold you down
You were made to take the wing
See your purpose from the air
Place your faith in better things

Strings And Things

Fragile, the nature of us, being fashioned
Of flesh or of bone or of both being fastened
And woven together, though temporal being
Through course unexplained and, by force, no one seeing

To conquer, to hunger, to draw ever closer
Impeccable faults like impossible lovers
Unwinding by fate, perhaps, choice being loosened
In turn we are chosen; in pain we are proven

In wearing, like garments, we serve out our purpose
Till death do us part or calamities hurt us
Too easily severed, too short in our lasting
We die without answers and live without asking

Yet in our existing, though brief and unstable
In seeking we dream to be, if we are able
Intwined with another by strings or such things
As God in his love and the meaning it brings

Hands As Hearts

20110810-020144.jpg
With hands as hearts
Across the gulf
In silence marks
The state of us

For words un-spoke
A phantom touch
Our feelings wrote
With shapes and such

With hands as hearts
By fingers made
In times apart
Can speak and say

This passing chance
I take at risk
To steal your glance
And show you this

With hands as hearts
Expressions drawn
In resolution
Hushed and calm

For distant eyes
And captive views
A thought implied
That “I love you”

A Future

20110809-015409.jpg
Wounded child
Lift your head
You are safe here

Broken heart
Take your rest
You are safe here

In the end everything will fade away
Until then there is still a hiding place
When the world seems a heavy weight to bear
Keep your faith child keep your faith

Find the future
Take the moments you’ve been given
Be the dreamer
Make a life that’s worth the living
There are plans that are much larger than you see
When you do not understand what they may be
Just remember
You have a future

Empty hands
Join again
You are safe here

Tired eyes
Sleep tonight
You are safe here

In the dark it is hard to see the cause
There is hope for the weary and the lost
Don’t forget there will always be a choice
Keep the faith child keep the faith
