don’t hide your truth
let it speak true
let it free you

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i see you

told you we’re the chosen
i’ll be your sun
since your heart is frozen

you’re both of us
like our souls were woven
i can be your solace
you can be beholden

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i’m golden

For Me

1EF90E2F-C008-4159-9710-076FD48F7409

focus all your focus on me
grab all your lenses
turn them on me
if i dropped my smile
would you catch it for me

you love life
but do you love it for me
do you love me for me
darling are you living for me
breathing for me

drove you to the edge
are you falling for me

if i’m ever lost
are you coming for me
tell me now
that’s the darkness
coming for me

that’s paradise
seen it hanging in your eyes
like the moon
you’re the influence
i’m under now
sailing the tide
i don’t like chasers
but you can hunt me down
that’s your canopy
take me down
your love’s electric
strike me now

and i don’t want gold or roses
just the bliss we’ve found
and you don’t want the world
i’m your planet
spin me round

Spill Ink

IMG_2481

and i found beauty in the dark
while riding the silence
and i did spill ink
watched it blend with the darkness
saw eye to eye with the storm
as the thunder raged on

walking with nightmares
in the daytime
and even when sun comes
it’s still nighttime
saw the corpse of my innocence
at the edge of my vision
yes, my sanity
needs some revision

Limbo

limbo (n): a place or state of imprisonment or confinement

abstract-art-painting-canvas-sd3

*****

staring at my phone
when i miss calls
missed my train
stranded in limbo

can’t feel much
just the pain i import
got all these thoughts
to distort
and all these ties
to kill off
my sanity hovers
then lifts off
please don’t bother
my inner discord

i wake up
it’s midnight
no need to draw curtains
i draw shapes with the dark
no need for lights
i see well in the dark
no need for wifi
i connect to the dark

i tried peace and balance
but i relapsed
told everyone i’m fine
i’m fine                  relax
i don’t slash my wrists
i slash my sanity
i can’t breathe
i’m panicking

On The Edge

4e5102201d189356dc9fa46b0a2f09b6

you got me swaying
like i’m tipsy
can’t walk far
without tripping

on the edge
and i’m slipping
catch me on the other side
hands all over, gripping

take my soul
for safekeeping
keep watch
while i’m sleeping

it’s your love
that i’m sipping
on the edge
and i’m leaping
