If i held you apon the ledge would fear
ever drift into your heart.
Waves crash below salt kisses the wind.
Far from this madness we do depart.
The storm outside brings it's cold
casting doubts with fear.
ligthing flashes giving light to useen places.
Thunder crashes you question the voices you hear.
locked behind doors kept in a wooden box atop
the fire place.
He removes the mask
To reveal only to the darkness his true face.
Within the flames exists the ash of
my troubled past.
Dreams of light cant exist under skies overcast.
A single moment can be the breaking straw.
Whats left of the lion.
does reside in the cats paw.
A ghost to these sheets this
bed I no longer haunt.
A waltz at a forgotten balll.
Underneath the arm of another was it only to flaunt.
Dark circles under eyes.
Trapped in this hell I despise.
the midnightoil burnt on through the day.
Love conseals a promise that your heart does betray.
Echo's in darkness
to all but strangers I do confide.
Bleeding within in the emptyness my
true self does reside.
