Blood Soaked Dollar Bills

As the sun awakens 
It rises over the lovelorn hills
The red sky is an initiation 
For these blood soaked dollar bills 
The hotels are full of ideas
Take your love
And take the rest of your day
Because If the hills had eyes
They still couldn’t hear all that people say 
Life seems like nothing but a means to an end 
For some it never began 
The hateful shed a tear
Only when they draw a line in the sand 

My Love

Here she comes again

Holding onto the joys of desire

Oh the fears of the diminishing regime

Hearts of lies, and the wind whistles as my dreams die
Only to think of life

The light blinds me tonight

The waves of the ocean give me a feeling of warmth
But I am undone
As I write a rhyme
To stop time and turn the world around to make you mine

 

When we say goodbye

It’s a mortal wound
Because my eyes have always followed you around the room
But here she comes again hushing my fears of the night
Trying to make sense of these wondrous dreams
Floating on the cusp of sin
I hope there will be a night when this love can begin

When we say goodbye

It’s a mortal wound
Because my eyes have always followed you around the room
And you are the reason my sun comes up
Darkness at the end of a tunnel
Far away from all the trouble that made me nothing but a shadow
Far away…

 

Say Hey

We tumble down the hills

Trying to find fun

Isn’t equivalent

To where we run
And Hey, there ain’t much else to say
Because I like life this way
I just hope I stay ok

I have been until this day

 

Let’s hope we can live past today

Let’s hope we find a way

The sun is burning my wings
Never thought it’d be like this
Didn’t believe the fat lady could sing

Or all this could conclude

So many before me

So many to come 

Hey, there ain’t much else to say
Because I like life this way
I just hope I stay ok

I have been until this day

 

A Bittersweet Morning

This is a poem for when the music slows down

When you have no shoulder to cry on

Your beliefs are nothing but a leaf in the mud
I thought I could trust you, I thought we were blood
There are signs of descent in every other word

You say you love me, but that’s not what I heard
Pain striking me when I’m down
I’ve lost my status
Now I’m simply your clown

There are a thousand songs to write
Only a few that touch your heart

On the way to the almighty light
Kicked the bucket in slow motion

Liquor and Pills, a magic potion
Maybe I don’t know how to love
Partially to blame
But when you find the special girl

Nothing really feels the same
Is this just a fairytale? Or is life supposed to be lived this way?
This is more than a game
There is so much more at play

Warmth

 

Here it comes again    

Delay the start,

To carry on through open doors

This must be life

There is something burning at the back of my mind

I just can’t describe

I’m holding out to find light in the sky

Fireballs in the air

As I fly
Belief in the darkness

The fear in what’s not right

Begins to open up

Trying to keep my feelings from coming undone

 

There is something burning at the pit of my heart

Hope is a dangerous sin

I want to fly but I don’t want to fall

I want my life to begin

I know you can’t love me anymore

I don’t know how to love
