Power

Power, something so many people crave

But at what expense

Although it gives the freedom to choose,

With a propensity for abuse and corruption

Is it really worth it?

It can be hoarded by the mighty

Or stolen from the innocent

Turning pacifists into militants

And freedom fighters into tyrants

Causing good intentions to turn to crisis

Leaving many unfortunate souls lifeless

Because the ones who have it indulge in their vices

I’ll ask again

How worth it is it?

Children of The Damned

Sad little girl with teddy bear

In a world without an end or beginning,

My sweet little rose tried so hard just to blend in.

She’s been walking through life looking for a connection.

She pretends to be tough but she’s really codependent.

All she ever really wanted was some sort of affection.

Forced to take life in so many directions.

She became cold and so unforgiving.

She needs me to fix her but it’s always too much.

I gave her everything I had but it was never enough.

My baby girl always calls me because she scared to be loved.

She wants me to soothe her with my rhetoric,

But I can’t bear to tell her that my love will only ever be synthetic.

It will fade like the sand in an hour glass.

And when it does it will only bring out our immense contrast.

The Things We Lost in The Fire

article-2023964-0D55048800000578-637_634x392

Girl I’m so conflicted

it’s been so long since we’ve kicked it.

But babe your really expensive,

I’m not sure if I’m still with it

You got on a plane and went back to your hometown,

And ever since then I’ve been trying to track you down.

Wood floors in your SoHo Apartment.

Good girl gone bad, I wonder how it started

Every week in July you would pick up the call.

Then I would race my way by past Webster Hall.

I would have been the Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes,

But what you really wanted was to be alone.

Going down the path of Veronica Lake.

But one good conversation is all it would take.

On second thought your more like Sophia Loren,

Una bella ragazza che è motto bello.

And no baby girl I didn’t mean to offend,

I just didn’t think that this is how it would end.

Last time we met you stared into my eyes so hopelessly

And ever since then I’ve just been walking around woefully.

Brave New World

moonstone

The righteous God came to take me down

Empty Cathedral roars with a silent sound

But the Devil sprung out to drag me around

He clenched my skin and took me straight to the ground

I’ve been ripped of my graceless heart

The demons circle round to tear it apart

Consumed by the darkness I’ve become undone

But the Angels fought hard to help me restart

They held so tight I had no place to run

The only one that can save me now

Is desperately trying to hide in the crowd

As God reached out and yelled my name

I rose like a Phoenix soaring through the flames

But with sinners and saints roaming all through town

Uneasy remains the head that wears the crown

God came up and said it’s your turn now

And as I pierced into her golden eyes

I was struck by a light that made me question life

In her arms I felt so soft and sweet

One million miles away from the terrors of the night

No more dragging around my faded fickle feet

I will no longer be ruled by what’s in the deep

Fool Me Once

fmo

Dear Katherine, the unicorn queen

You did it well, yes you played your part

I know it’s quite rude but it’s not my fault I stole your heart

You brought your love baby and I brought my pain

Next time you come over to stay

I’ll own your body like my names is Christian Gray

All the wrongs you committed, You would dance to my songs on the minute

Girl I warned you about my type but you didn’t listen to the hype

You fell into a plight and sunshine I know it isn’t right

You patiently waited for me on the corner of Vandam

Because you wanted me to apologize for the time I broke your hand

I didn’t want to hurt you, but I know I caused some shame

To call what we had love would be a crime against the masses

But babe I know your heart will heal as long as time passes

Stand By Me

Tea

Been having a hard time dealing with pain

Just hear me out girl, only one exchange

Talk to me please I’m sending postcards from the edge

I was just calling because I’m feeling smitten

I need you right now, are you down to listen

I would take a whisper if that’s all that was given

I know I’ve been acting strange

Just hear me out and I’ll explain

You’re my own special kind of drug

But I know being locked in my mind isn’t enough

Been holding on to you because I can never let you go

I’m consumed with sorrow because I can tell

Your heart is somewhere else

On those cold lonely winter nights,

You’re trapped in my heart

You’ve got the best of me, my sweet counterpart

You’re the perfect pearl

You make me feel like I own the world

The Dash

abby-dash

Your tombstone declares,

The day you were born and the day you die,

With a dash in between.

So embrace who you are

And don’t try to hide

Because before you know it,

Life is over in a flash

You only live once

So live the dash.

Live For The Day

Live

The days pass by on this journey we call life.

Which all in all is just one grand unrepeatable experiment.

I have just created my masterpiece

And I know it will be criticized incessantly.

Since it is a fact that we will all eventually die,

Regardless of what people say,

I will proudly affirm “but on that day I lived”.

Just Ask

152

The art of asking

Is an invaluable skill.

The ability to shed every social mask,

Show vulnerability, and ask,

Is the epitome of strength.

The reality of life

Is that regardless of who they seem to be,

Nobody really knows what they are doing.

A world where everyone lends a helping hand

Is one I’m sure we would all be grateful to live in.
