We’re The Chosen

the chosen (n): one who is the object of choice or of divine favour

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

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

If You Dare

IMG_2015

take me to your low-lit lair
and rip these layers
rip my layers

i’m only flesh and velvet
when you lay me bare
my bones can sense
your sinful stare
so i’ll kneel for you
like i’m saying prayers

third eye’s open
i see everywhere
i’ve looked at life
from heaven’s stairs
if you want
i’ll take you there
                                                    but only if you dare
