Hopeless hopes of courage (unfinished lyrics)

Written by: james faulkner


My eyes a truly blessed
To see such elegant manifest 
In charismatic eyes

Words quiver as timid thoughts leap for risk-free skies
My wit was lost beneath the beauty of your arise 
I’d beg for words to weep at the splendor of your goodbyes
Lord knows I must be unwise
Yet under the guise of poetry words wouldn’t sufficiently be supplied
Why can’t I speak?
Why can’t I speak? 

If only empathy truly was to exist
You’d feel such a gentle kiss
Upon opening the door to your soul
Such a shock, words of bliss would belittle this
Hypothetically of course because those hopeless hopes are buried in abyss
Only if you knew
Only if you knew

Doubt forever attached to thoughts about you
Wishing for poise and courage
Yet continuously knowing in the mist of you they’d never debut
No matter the attire and shoe
Your charm makes my mind trip askew
And heaven knows I’d trip , crawl, and free-fall to fires just lay next to you
Just next to you
Just next to you
