Perspective

Insanity brings new perspective
A new outlook on my future
This former cookie cutter life
No longer a priority to me
I plan to deface my body
To destroy any progress made
In any field or relationship
And fly solo through it all
I beg you to understand
And support my new choice
For I am beyond your's or God's help
So let me give in to insanity
And wallow through life

Roaming

I roam silently
This unpaved path
With so many questions
So many curiosities
To try to find my way
My way home
My way back
Back into your arms
But you have disguised it
Distorted it endlessly
To hide from me
And keep me away
So keep away I shall
Until into your heart
And into your life
You take me in

Rain

He can be your hero
If you let him try
He can be your everything
If you forget good bye
He would drop anything
To save your day
And make a fool of himself
Begging you to stay
Let your guard down
Allow him to see you
Give him experience
It's what you should do
I see how he looks at you
And likewise you the same
But unless you allow sunshine
There will always be rain

Fading

I wish to fade silently
Causing no more damage
After what I had done to you
With an icy heart
You never deserved it
There was no reasoning in play
Just the simple math of us
And I botched it
Cold feet aren't to blame
Just a gypsy's soul
And feet for running
That were obviously used
But I see my mistakes
And note my downfalls
Though now I am a better man
So let me fade away as such

Sleeves

Let me into your heart tonight my dear
All I have is my hat in my hand and my heart on my sleeve
Let me warm you and rid you of your fears
In a true love, let me make you believe
I know it seems impossible to you now
But I will treat you as a queen in her home
So do not doubt what it is or what we may allow
For I have what I want and will no longer roam

Cynic

Trust governs my choices
Rendering me idle
I find no trust earned
No action worthy of attempt
Some underlying reason
Why I was put here
In this deceitful place
Among the sewage and rats
Nothing honest is present
So I shall search for it
A trustworthy world
That lies among snakes
And feeds off the weak

Nightmare

Here I am
Your worst nightmare
Not a monster
Not the devil
I am you
Your reflection you see
Your own voice
Haunting you forever
You can't shake me
I will destroy you
From the inside out
Until you are no more

Distort

Through the looking glass
Views distort unfairly
Sides are taken
Wars are waged
So this time I will join
I will go to war
My hands will be bloody
Covered in treachery
Or is it just this distortion
My view impaired
By this looking glass
That brings your demise

Hindsight

Hindsight vision is perfect
When it comes to anything
Whether that one drink cost you
Or whether it was the one word unsaid
Regardless of your choices
You should always walk on
Trudge forward if you must
But never lose sight of the present
You will fall down in your time
So long as you get back up
Learn from your mistakes
And live your life fully

Tyrant

This day brings forth
A new era of belief
One that represents
Greater than any other
Stronger stature
Prouder following
I live for this moment
To follow proudly
Because one day 
I will lead it all
After years of servitude
I will exact my plan
I will take it by force
Overthrow power
Create my own following
And become a tyrant

Magic

Whether I'll be there pickin peaches
Or holding your cold hands
I'll be there in the morning
Just trying to make us plans
You know you are the greatest
A sugar that is oh so sweet
I see a magical future
I hope you'll spend with me
Because I don't wanna imagine
A world without your kiss
So every moment you're gone
Know that it's you I'll miss

Empty

These days I wander
Without aim
Without poise
No goal in sight
But here I weigh
My options
My choices
With nothing to show for
All I can see
Is emptiness
In my forward sight
For the near future
Let me be inside it
Let me own the emptiness

Dearest

The moon is absent this night
Much like you are from me
I feel you deep within
Though I pine for your presence
This night divinely set
For the creation of love
From the prick of a thorn
To the blooming of a rose
Ice melts as I have done
My heart a puddle at my feet
Your voice resonating in my ears
The sweetest harmony heard
Your beauty blinds me
And I am humbled still
I will call you mine
As my persistence drives me
Forward on, forever if need be
I will fall off this earth
If it means you share my name
And to the end of time I travel
To make all of this reality
In your eyes and your heart
I hope to embrace you
Once and forevermore

Lion

I am watched with beady eyes
Captive to this primitive kind
Such insignificant morsels
Yet no place to hide
I am a king of kings
Where I come from
So I need to be released
I need to have my freedom
So here I pace 
Back and forth without end
Waiting for that day
To again feel the African wind
I am a proud lion
Not someone's pet
So set me free
Or live with this regret

Well

This well I find myself in
Is deeper than I could fathom
I try to jump and climb out
But to no avail, I fall
Continually, I realize
My situation seems impossible
These people trying to help
I drag down with me
So I cave this well in
Bring it down around me
So that this inevitable death
May bring me final peace

Unraveled

The universe unravels
This winding road
Placing me firmly
On its path
Though I fear it
And dread its presence
I welcome it
All the same
Divinities unknown
There is always a reason
For things becoming
So I welcome it
Unexpected happenings
Things left undone
This road is my path
To my destiny

Junkie

I need this for me
A moment of adrenaline
Uninterrupted, unbroken
So that I may get my fix
Some call me junkie
Others an addict in general
But I say otherwise
Because life is too ordinary
I get no satisfaction 
Out of walking calmly
So here I fall to the earth
And I am finally happy

Baby

Let him breathe
Let him stretch 
Let the plane touch down
He's got another to catch
Big day for him
One he won't miss
For he's only got one chance
He must see this
Fly and drive
He moves as fast as he can
Amazed with himself
And all this time he ran
He bursts through the doors
Her eyes move to see
As she pushes once more
To reveal a baby as beautiful as she

Someone

Give me someone to hold
Give me someone to love
Give me someone to admire
Give me someone to respect
I weep alone here
With my head in my hands
Longing for my love
My unknown love
Until I saw you
I knew what I had to do
It made no difference
We would be together
She did not see it yet
But patience and charming
I would allow to work
So I could have someone to hold
Love, admire, and respect

Spider

Who are these monsters
These massive monsters
That fear me so
As a scary monster myself
They attempt to squish me
As I scurry away
To my base I created
For these escapes
But here they come
Lumbering after me
To destroy that too
As I attempt to escape
But alas, my luck has run out
As their massive foot
Is brought down swiftly
To defeat this spider

Orange

The taste of orange
Is not one explicable
It must be experienced
To be related in life
So as I drink this
As I chew this
My taste buds overtake
And let me know
How tasty I find this
The taste of orange

Aches

My back aches with intensity
Day after day of pain
For a purpose, a cause
So these pains can become worth it
My child, my wife
The food on the table
The roof over our head
The clothes on our back
So here I sweep
There I serve
Two jobs steal my time
But not without purpose
I will provide for my loves
And do whatever it takes
So let my back ache infinitely
As long as I can provide forever

Moments

This is freedom
The right to march on
On my own path
With no guidance needed
Let us walk ourselves
And find our way forward
I believe in myself
I believe in this moment
When I take my future
Take advantage
Of every moment
And every breath

21

This anticipated moment
Never before experienced
But today is my day
The first of many to come
A smile shoots across my face
My hands clinch excitedly
As the card hits the table
And 21 is presented to me
In the form of jack and ace
Suited in spades

Grants

The rain pours
As the sun shines
Setting the tone
For an odd day
A day of greatness
Or opportunity thereof
That I plan to use
To take advantages
Lord, give me wings
To fly through this
To allow it all to be done
Anything needed
After all, He set the day
So let me live
In these moments
He has granted me

Books

I know not what drives you
What I do know about you
Is that you are a stranger
To me and my friends
You stand there and speak
Of a man nonexistent
As though he is your friend
And claim faith over insanity
It is not logical to hear
Though it is inspirational
So I will stay and listen
As my mind becomes an open book
Faith becomes a defined word
I have a new direction
As this prophet has shown me
What there is to praise

Prince

Line these walls with gold
So that I may be properly surrounded
For a palace of priceless metals
Is all I deserve and more
I am a priceless jewel myself
So I must surround myself with such
Therefore, I demand all cuts and colors
From every corner of the world
My neediness you ask?
Well, I am a prince of greed and gluttony
I must possess all I can
Because to have it all
Is never enough

True

I walk these miles
Wear down these shoes
For you, to show you
To show what I have to lose
Everything and nothing
Because what I truly need
I don't have yet
But for it, I will bleed
I do bleed my heart out
For you, and what I hope for
Just an absent emotion
I feel is not a reality anymore
But I will strive for it
Let my heart pine
For I feel love true
And I want you as mine

Walls

Tra la la la la la la
Do you hear the sparkles?
I sure do
These walls can't silence them
I wrap myself tighter
Or should I say
My friends do that for me
As the sparkles sing to me
Tra la la la la la la
This echoes through me
Like a hollow hall
With no occupants home
I feel empty
I scream out loud
I fight this tightness
This tight jacket
As I ignore the singing
And slam against these padded walls
No escape, no escape
Insanity has a hold on me
How do you feel?
Because I know how the sparkles feel
Tra la la la la la la

Triumph

Let this tale be told
That I withstood odds
Unimaginable, immeasurable
For you, for God
I could have quit
Thrown in the towel
Waved the white flag
And given up completely
But I instead drove on
I put in extra time to triumph
Because you believed in me
You made me believe in myself
So I stand before you today
A recipient of victory
As I beam endlessly
With a smile unshakable
This, my moment of valor
All because of you
My family, my friends
Thank you all
