Village in the Valley

Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find
Mountain in the making...in the dark alleys of my mind

You're a flashlight
In the night
You are a friend 
Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village in the valley
Ignite the regret 
I'm the flag on the mountain that rolled into a dark alley

Talking xo
Thinking ox
Dreaming xo
Sinking ox
Walking xo

Zleep with me, make love to villainous Heros like me, you see?
Excrete your exclamation points on me -
In other words, yell at me all you want
Your words, like castles in a nightmare, haunt and taunt
I felt the gravity 69 times harder this time 
I felt the gravity negative 37...I'm commuting a rhyme rhyme

Screwed up inspiration the moment someone calls me...putting up with mental and emotional silent fights
Scatterbrained the moment you tainted me with your poisonous venom of wrongs and rights...

I can hold my breath under above
I can hold on to death even when I live...reviving my will to live
Number 1 thing in mind - your love
I can be bold when I want to...for if myself to give,
Not take...
Human instincts has my life at stake
I ain't fake
Take away the phantoms of the nightfall...
Break away the fall leaves of the crumbled reminders of my free-fall 
Just a little busy with myself

Feeling myself
Feeling yourself 
Took so much BS
I'm such a fail success 

Razor blades in your eyes
Needle your way through me
Tattooing your love loath oaths on truth lies in our lives of highs
Fiddle with my strings, baby

Tear away the cheater in me
Steer away from the waters of wistful desires and errors
Acting like no one cares hehe
Munching on the chips of my despair...my secret admirers 

Troublesome liar...
Put out the fire
In me heart, oh lovely life cart
Take heart or I'll shatter apart

Shrugging away the words I speak
Peace be with you, cheating death 
Reap what you sow and patch up the leak
That let go of all of the Liquid of Lament in our busy lazy lives...take a breath
Into me
Into me...
Inhale destiny
Exhale reality 
Beat life into me 
No where to flee
We are Queen and King 
Of our despondent tragedies
Give me a Middle finger ring
Because I messed it up...our temporary, blissful relationship full of happiness and miseries

Back in time my mind turns to
Up late again, sick of being apart of this corrupted crew
Stone-hard love is what you gave me...baby, don't leave me to be with me...alown with my ghosts to a certain degree
In return, I gave you black roses, splattered with my blood, my plea of free me...I'm so worthless and dainty 

I acted like a *****, I'm sorry
Fix me, I'm a backwards clock
Change my future to beat the failures of the past...that would make me dance in glee
Run the distance and be my rock

Classical music plays in my mind
Like a pingpong match all along
Pop and rock music made me blind
But, I love the ignorance...not fully understanding right and wrong 
Listen to song in my heart
Listen to poetry I had in mind
Listen plea-please
Heal my-my disease 

Lost the grip of the hope rope 
I won't say my yes or nope
To your danger-of-peril questions 
Sick of your senseless decisions
Cope with me, the reckless **** and slave of sin
Rape me with your gruesome passion...from deep within

Snarky remarks I love, but secretly hate...what is my ultimate fate? How low or high is my emotional rate? Great...
Snobby looks I undoubtably despise
Arrogance and humility are opposites that attract like fish to bate
Lately, I was looking up to the wise at least in my weary, naive eyes

Mate, look into my mirror
You'll see beauty you haven't seen yet inside and outside of you
Disdainful rain made it a blur
Sorry, sir...you don't know me and my true colors I bet! Hah, where have you been?

What doesn't harm you 
Makes you last longer
What doesn't kill you
Makes you live stronger 

Moving on...before the break of dawn, dusk departs from me from now on and on and on 
Broken be, but God is a miracle-carver, rolling in my inner veins~~
A mender from the start to the finish line, hope is gone and seeking His ever-accepting son
I haven't been to Harvard University, but it doesn't necessarily mean that I don't have brains (€@})

It's too late to change 
That's what I thought at first
Why doubt? It's time to rearrange
Beat this race of disgrace before we are assumed as the worst
Who cares what they say
This is our victory day
Hush those haters and make us look greater than good
It's all Good here, no room for fear, but of devouring faith food
Off the ground
Wings turn to ashes
I can fly without physical powers without a sound
Pockets full of cashes 

Villagers vocalize their shouts and praise...we are making their days like roses that sprout in the month of May - that's bae and my heart goes cray-cray these days 
Headed our direction in a single sugarcoated phrase
I'm going through a phase of confident modesty 
You're going through a stage that I'm not on yet... We're on another page in sheer honesty

Shake off the stress
Shower me with alone belong
Make me feel progress
Write me a heartfelt song...dingdong someone's home - a haven you called friend all along 

You're a flashlight
In the night
You are a friend 
Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village in the valley
Ignite the regret 
I'm the flag on the mountain that rolled into a dark alley

Young and free
That's what it's meant to be
Flee from me, anxiety
Embrace me, be happy 
Stay, don't stray
I heard you flew with another bird
Hey, don't go away
I loved you, speaking lullabic poetry for you in every single way
I pray you return the favor
Sprinkle salt and pepper 
Upon my distasteful flavor
You're a keeper, my beloved lemon pepper...I wanna hear your luv purrrr and your whispering murmur
In my keen, hu-hungry ears...
Longing to hear those words
For a couple of marvel years...
I apologize for the insults I threw at yah a while back...I heard they were absurd, but it came out as rapid as once-caged-freed-birds

Beautiful you, morning dew
Hideous me, cow's hilarious moo
We were meant to be, booboo
Shoo, hate, shoo...you too...

I'm the village in the valley
You're the flag on the mountain 
You are Frankenstein in a dark, lonesome alley
And I'm the man who's weeping a fountain
For a secure foundation 
For our relevant relationship 
For the sake of your satisfaction 
Take a dip into my waters of wistfulness and get a grip 
We were once a wretched ship, sinking fast 
Now we are one with our friendship, growing vast 
Forget and forgive the future, present and past 

Let's make sure this adequate time spent together will never last 
As long as I am your valley 
And you, my mountainous alley

Evanescence

There's a pounding in my head
My feet feel as heavy as lead
There's no point in explaining 
I just keep on contemplating... complaining...

This throbbing in my heart 
Might just tear me apart
This horrid feeling in my stomach
Might be butterflies, fluttering in a pack...
There's quite a few skills and strengths that I lack 

Just allow me to see right through the pain
Bite the bullet and catch the midnight train 
It might be because I'm going crazy already 
It might be because I don't feel at all ready 

I'm in awe as you decide to leave me behind 
I'm disappointed in you and you don't care obviously 
I guess you don't notice me in shame - you don't mind 
I'll just be happy and mask this hurt inside I see 

I feel horrified by your heartless decisions 
I'm still able to accomplish my missions
My ambition has faded away along with my confidence
I'm still waiting patiently for this sweet deliverance from evanescence

I'm disappearing...I'm vanishing...
You're so not endearing...in agony, diminishing...
I'm enduring this tribulation 
Feeling sudden grand sensation
Brewing away the muse of lamentation
Pushing away the feelings of frustration

Put a Sock in It

You say I’m crazy
I would say otherwise
Change is a challenging chore, 
But honey, I ain’t a bore

Put a sock in it…
Stop throwing your childish fit
Pressured to do something I don’t want to
Ta-ta…love of mine
I’m fading away…insanity becomes serpentine to my skull and soul
And I see that you’ve vanished from my side

You say I’m a jerk
Drifting away into another place called Woe…
I’m gonna go berserk 
No way, no way, it wasn’t what you called “Your Special Day”
Fed up with the failures of yesterday
But, there’s tomorrow…my spirits dance and my spirits prance 
In front of me, you cried because I was gone
I lost my train of thought…waiting till the day’s done

Put a sock in it…
Stop throwing your childish fit
Pressured to do something I don’t want to
Ta-ta…love of mine
I’m fading away…insanity becomes serpentine to my skull and soul
And I see that you’ve vanished from my side

Bite the bullet for once in your life
Sift out the strife that cuts me like a knife
Fading away….I pray that I won’t be hunted down today like prey
Hey, hey, hey I loved you, but now I see the real you…today…
Your true colors were blending with my own
I, the broken bone, was left all alone
God, my backbone, has come to rescue me, but I’m on my own

Put a sock in it…
Stop throwing your childish fit
Pressured to do something I don’t want to
Ta-ta…love of mine
I’m fading away…insanity becomes serpentine to my skull and soul
And I see that you’ve vanished from my side

Sunday, Monday,
I pray I don’t sleep and sway
Tuesday, Wednesday, 
I’m about to go cray-cray
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday arrives…
It brings to life happiness and high hopes…
Dive into me, ocean-whelmed diver…you are a sweet survivor
But, my future is a mighty blur…blur…
Find me a cure…quickly, find me a cure…
The hardships – I will endure, I will endure…

Put a sock in it…
Stop throwing your childish fit
Pressured to do something I don’t want to
I don’t need them and I don’t seek their attention
Pleasure beyond measure will not release the tension,
Growing inside and out of me…
But, possibly, you’ll soon see
That you and I are like 2 seas…
Whirling at ease, doing what we please
Doing what we please at ease…at ease…
Don’t, just don’t be a tease, a tease

Put a soaked sock in it…
Don’t throw us both into a bottomless pit
You say I’m crazy
I say, “Yes!” Then, I ask, “Do you see us both at the sea of ecstasy?”
God’s pool is the sea we long to roam…
But, first, let’s find our true Home

Put a sock in it… Stop throwing your childish fit Pressured to do something I don’t want to Ta-ta…love of mine I’m fading away…insanity becomes serpentine to my skull and soul And I see that you’ve vanished from my side And I see that you’ve vanished from my side

I Ain't Going Nowhere



Well I think it's about time once again To thank all my friends here on the Soup To let you all know how much you mean to this old duffer For brightening up each and every one of my days At this late stage in a very happy life With your oh so kind, uplifting and encouraging words Especially from all you dear sweet ladies You continue to curl my toes and zip my zipper Youse guys are appreciated too but sorry You don't curl my toes OR zip my zipper But you DO pop my buttons when I get a thumbs up I've often thought, what would my life be like If I was to call it quits... WHAT!!! And leave all my sweet sweet lovable friends NOT A FREAKING CHANCE! You're stuck with me for the duration 1. Till I cash in my chips 2. Till my body assumes room temperature 3. Till I bite the bullet 4. Till I buy the farm 5. Till I climb over that last ridge 6. Till I'm food for the worms 7. Till I take a dirt nap 8. Till I take the last train to Memphis 9. Till my Internet crashes 10. Till I go “**** up” So are you picking up what I'm putting down? I AIN'T GOIN' NOWHERE! © Jack Ellison 2014

Constructive Critism

There's consequences in all we say and do 
Go forward and walk your walk and I'll go ahead and talk my talk 
Quite distraught due to the fact that you're too good to be true
I know that the Lord of Accord will be following me like my shimmering shadow wherever I walk 

I will walk and walk
And I will talk my talk 
I will practice what I preach
To the pupils, I will teach

Pensive propositions is my speech's mission 
Honor and think through Constructive criticism
Cleverly-written composition begin to slightly transition 
Take correction not for granite...with optimism that is symmetrical like a puny prism 

Free-spirited I long to be 
With you as long as I thrive to wondrously live
I want to flee and be set free
Let go and have consideration to generously give 
Be anxious for nothing 
Love all and do your thang
God's spirit is available to us 24/7
I always make my way to 7-eleven 

Doing away with the latter days of my lament 
Live in the present of yesterday's tomorrow
My mind constantly whirls around like a hurricane near the beach and tornado in the east side of the United States - my mind is cozy in God's tent 
Repenting slowly, but surely until sorrow is a healing scar that flies away in recovery like a splendid, spunky sparrow 

Hooking up problems I need to fix 
At least I don't receive a million kiks
Tweet me, Facebook me, tumblr me...insta me...younow me...
But I'll still be lonely as can be 
Fruit of the spirit drives me to drift away from deception's flow that's broad and deceiving 
Faithful and loyal with dignity and positivity is what I crave in my character of behave-and-be-brave...
Self-control braces itself upon my inner being and I accept it kindly 
Patience paints a picture of peace in the frame of my mind silently 
 
Human nature
Is enmity to God that is evil and impure 
It leads to death I'm sure
God's way - the way of life at least in my humble opinion, which will be a fact in the near future 

It's okay to be different
It's alright to be working on perfection 
As long as you repent
For all the downfalls and sins we've committed that gave you inner infection 

Reveal to me His spirit and the life it produces fruitfully
Zealous is the sun that shines upon me oh so dutifully 
Gracious be to the sons and daughters of Him who has made the world so beautifully 
Until Satan tainted it with sinister avarice and insidious, chaotic catastrophe 

Quit your disputes and quarrels and arguing alike
Stop trolling people on the net...or you'll have something to regret 
Listen to instruction 
Accept correction 
You choose destruction or construction 
Do you want His amazing affection or His raging rejection!!?

Foundation of faithfulness
Goes to the called ones in God's family alone and He is the Father we look upon 
Obliteration of misery's mess
Come on and follow me...I will be your responsible leader from now on

I want knowledge from God
From on high, not down below in Satan's Despising Nature
People just ignore and nod
Approach people in the nicest way and react, act and think good thoughts and good actions and interactions that are grown-up and mature 

Need I proclaim my beliefs to all the world, Lord?
Should I explain myself constantly? What's my award? Reward?
What if I commit sins that I can't afford?
I hoard shame in my brain basement, but you played skillfully on the I-forgive-you keyboard 

There's a reason behind what God does
Do not remain blind or deaf 
The spirit of stupor is splendid to my human nature....and its faithless flaws
I don't understand your plate's creativity, my chill chef 

God selects His special chosen one
He sees the nature and character of each and everyone 
He is the guide to everlasting life that's full of blessings and miracles
But, my life is full of depression dungeons and mysterious black holes

Eat Christ's flesh and drink His blood of His Father's Wise Sayings and Life-giving Word 
You must abstain from lusts of your gullible, heartless hearts and your prayers will be heard
If you don't believe and betray Him for life,
Your life will end in jaded death and strife

I wish I can declare His Word to all nations 
But I get nervous and soft-spoken beyond frustrations and heightened hesitations 
I'm awkward... Why was I called in His church? 
Am I a bird that has nowhere to truly rest and perch?

Predicaments in double trouble dilemmas substantially produce like cells in the body
Free me, heal thee, I die for you to live...I live for you to die...your hard heart makes my softness wither with everybody 
Wide and broad are the path of many in this world of woe...and no one fully knows why 
Difficulty be to the few who choose the narrow route that leads to constructive criticism by Lotd Most High 

Once saved, always saved -
A belief originated in Christianity
I beg to differ - His saving grace has waved
Its effortless goodbye to Human's Atrocity 

Labor in prayer, don't swelter 
Work in love, sweat off hate and swear not
Be a giver, not a getter
Resist the urge to sin and persevere always, even in the darkness we rot

Discipline yourself
Through enduring self-control
Unlearn Satan's nature, as small as an elf
Compared to God's Giant Word that is a life tool to be rid of the fool inside us as a whole 

Doing evil will have its aftershocks sting us like a viper
It will shoot us down, so bite the bullet of the serpent's sniper 
I pray that I live in sanctuary city for the time being
I envy the happy-go-lucky and dislike what I'm seeing 

Drinking in the Lord's yoke,
Mixed with the Words He spoke
You bind me with a biggo blind fold
Your spirit's intention is to simply scold 

Faithful Moses parted the Red Sea
Miracles and curses shelter thee 
I never knew that my life was of significance
Until I noticed that everyone is living in ignorance

Except the called ones...
Faith that weigh a trillion tons 
Thank God for everything good
His word is a nourishing food

Emerge from the scorching coals and ice fire of your existence 
Transform yourself before you remain in ashes' realm...seek repentance 
The good news of the Kingdom of God is ringing in my ears
Wondering when it will be that day of awesome forever years

I will walk and walk
And I will talk my talk 
I will practice what I preach
To the pupils, I will teach

Fret not the desires on fire and the passionate petitions of your young heart 
Do not worship other gods before Him - Frey will fade away from the start
The gods of the east have come to get their revenge towards the gods of the east 
The battle between them is beast...it's like enjoying a feast of chaos and commotion and peace and emotion...but their attitudes puff up like the bread ingredients that includes yeast 

Inspired by (Matt. 7:13), (Matt. 11:29) and (Hebrews 11:24)

Uncle Scrooge had lost his wallet

Uncle Scrooge had lost his wallet
He went mad and chased a pullet
He fell down the glen
Ended in  cow pen
Mr.Scrooge had to bite the bullet

Below the Horizon - Shallow Shame

Agony be to society's demise
Labels are for fools, not for the wise
Play the familiar tune of in-unison serenity 
Fatality won't come any time soon, thankfully...

Homeless and homosexual people were on the news not to long ago...I weep in anguish... 
I'm tattered and torn in long-term grief because why is society so heartless and selfish?

You fill in the gaps
Unwrap the poetic raps
Of my sold-my-soul-to-the-angel-of-light words 

I suppose I was born a maniac fool, a mindless talker - sucks to be me right now...don't be an intimidating mocker 
I guess I wasn't meant to be a deep thinker...more like a Walking Dead walker 
A sorrowful sinker...brilliantly lame and I can't be tame
A shallow thinker...that's a mighty shame that you play me like a game

Intimate family surrounds me
Immediately, I feel comfort in vain 
Make up the loss of your motivation
A brainwashed worker, getting paid minimum wage...reduced to happy, mishap-made frustration 

Glide into me...glee without ends 
Pilgrim inside the ship of my friends 
Happily ever ending never happened in the first place
The end is the beginning of trouble before my face...
I guess I was a disgrace...
An expired grace without a trace 
Under the surface of impatient waiting
Below the horizon of senseless debating

I hate it when people brag
I hate it when he rubs all his successes in my face 
I'm a wet, useless rag and I'm a computer that lags...I'm a worthless paper bag, left in the kitchen for what seems like decades of no-use times...life is a game of tag
I feel like you bred me with disgrace - you're the wild hog on your motorcycle...you zoomed off and I'm trying to keep pace with my heart beats...our love relationship was, all along, a competitive race

Swallow your pride
I'm going through a bipolar ride
Darkness swallows me like a dark tide
Step inside of the devil in my eyes...there, you'll find I wasn't the angel you laid eyes on...there's no where to hide the monster inside that's attacking what's in the outside...
Of...
Me...

Shame embraced me...you were a lost opportunity and a priceless possibility 
Where's the will to soar to pleasant lands?
Name of fame wasn't meant for me possibly...unfortunately...
Where do I land? In isolated islands? 

Is there a cure for loneliness?
Am I cute when I feel acute  misgivings? Why am I as enraged as Hulk? 
Why is you and I this miserable mess?
I'm angry because you rejected my helping hand...I'm depressed, but I wear the mask of mere cheer...I smile because I'm slightly happy...I'm glad I'm not in your shoes of sulk...

Too many times I bled out regret for you 
The hideous beautiful - you'll see it dimming anew
Rape me with rue and plant your seed in my mind's eye
Don't saturate me with your hatred and dread...feeding off of the debris of my loveless flu 

Woke up with a headache
I am caked with the sand of your lament lake 
Circle around me, shadows of the sun
Native American blood was shed here...the arrow of ancient time pierced me in the heart - so, put down your gun

I bit the bullet...you bite the bullet...have you met your end, debt? 
My joy jets fly on by below the horizon 
A good day to live and let die all of the sorrow and regret 
You don't see me cry above under you like the dusk dawn 

Bring me to heaven
Sad Raven, why so dark blue? 
Below the horizon
Sink in my words above your skin surface...find my other shoe...

Don't walk away
I'm a rain, transforming into a sunny day
I'm afraid everyday 
I sit down and obey

Masterbating to the fact that you have hurt me emotionally and sexually 
You fed me inner illumination and diseased me mentally...
Now, you're running away from the reality in disguise of a fantasy 
I'm suffering, you cannibal that eats up human happiness to the highest degree

I want freedom to get out of the chains of captivity 

Hell breaks loose in your hoarse voice
It's a bad day in California I'm afraid...we are different shade, so watch our relationship cascade 
Lately, my spirits were gliding in the prairies of your long-lost dreams, leaving you no room to rejoice
Rock and roll to my beat - you need an upgrade 

You dropped me off to school
You left me with jaded love
You took me as a fool
You are below the horizon, dove... 
You aren't a seagull...
All you say is bull! 
It's all said and done
I get it - I lost and you won

You and I aren't over,
So don't think I'll break it off with you
I am the flower and you, the clover
We work together as a team to higher our self-esteem to avoid feeling blue 

Strive to arrive on time in my classroom of tests and tribulations 
I will give you a complete guide to my heart's desire - Genesises to Revelations 
Suave sensations move me as my soul-at-ease heart pounds in my chest of I've-tried-my-best...
Say no more...holding my tongue of fire before it devours further - I was wired a weird way, so don't ruin my day...you friend and foe - or can I say pest?

What are you thinking about? 
Are you a screaming doubt and a child's pout?
I hear the downpour of your boohoo distress
I ignore it rebelliously with my teenage eustress 

Make love to the loveless
Feed the wealthy in heart 
Witnessed your mistakes that made you this miserable mess
I know why you're tearing apart

Puke out the bones of leave-me-alone's
Give me faith and do it again...do it again...you're my possession and my obsession 
I can't disobey you this time...I'll stay loyal to you...my troll fairy, my darling devil dearie 
Excuse me!? Don't say a word to me about your passions, a compare and contrast theory 

Judge me not, though I'm an absurd human being, alone in my herd
I dare you to tell me the truth about your past life - I won't spread it ear to ear (I won't spread rumors in other words) 
God is my shepherd and my voice will be heard...my words are of quality, not turd
I'll keep a secret as long as you tell me everything that's in your diary of personal stuff...have no fear, for God is here...God's Kingdom is near, my wandering-deer dear 

Naturally, living in fear and peace put together...I'm not feeling all the good, but doing somewhat better
Yet, God's spirit dives into me like a feather, caught in the breeze of a spiraling  weather 

Beaten...Betrayed...
Led astray...giving in to the abominations of my lustful life...a sick sin
Opinions swayed...
By facts, gone array and gone away by the wind of crooked doctrine

Danse Macabre

Bite the bullet brave voyagers of war's wailing screams and cries
which terrify not few fighters that tremble not at new nightmares dreamt in somber tents.
The circus invokes its skull clients to its danse macabre.
Behold the skull's countenance contemplating thy face,
seeking to crown thee some forlorn day.
I will dance upon the fields of thy grave, 
I will smile at your progeny,and take to wife thine daughter; 
And together we shall partake in life's debauchery.

Bite the Bullet

You tell me I gotta bite the bullet.
Then you turn around and chant “Pull it! Pull it!”
Because you’re not the one diseased.
Teased.
Seized.
So you don’t really care if the trigger gets squeezed.
You sit in your chair studying my thoughts, my every word.
Notepad in hand, scribbling your diagnosis, which happens to be absurd.
Because you have no medicine to cure my pain.
Maybe I’ve just snapped and gone insane...
How ‘bout that one DOC!
Shhhh. Listen. “tick-tock” says the clock…
Enough with the therapy session.
An hour of your lies isn’t gonna erase my depression.
So quit feeding me doses of anti-depressants.
I don’t need a placebo, I need to hear a sensible sentence.
Some words that alleviate my fear.
Dry every last tear.
But you people just prick me with a needle that picks and picks.
Until I’ve endured a broken mind impossible to fix.
Doctor, you can’t draw a smile across my face.
You’ve never lived in this dark of a place
You don't understand.
It’s already been shot down my gullet.
So how am I supposed to bite the bullet?

Tear Down the Walls

(Spoken) All I could do is go away without looking back 
The wind blows to and fro and I'm back on track 
You and I smile to hide the pain
Don't be stuck in the past - catch the future's train

Verse 1: There's no accidents in what we do
Break away from the tension that surrounds you 
Forcing a smile won't help will the pain away
Our weaknesses will hunt us down day after day
Come here and cry on my shoulders
Throw away the tragic past folders
Bite the bullet
Bite the bullet
See right through my regret...I'm so upset 
I'm pessimistic's pet 
You're missing out in the opportunities that promise to make your life worth living for
You're dissing me out with your imprudent vanities and you slammed the front door 
There you go...
Go...

Pre-chorus: Go do what your heart desires
Forget about the haters and the liars
You were lost in your burnt paradise
Tears cloud your eyes, but you wear the mask of happy lies

Chorus: Tear down the walls 
Sorry for missing your calls
Go away from the dark
Before it leaves another scar...that hideous mark
What a shame that you're faith has faded away
Go do your own thing and backstab me why don't you...left on the dirty ground 
Don't worry about me - soon, you'll pay the price in a most harmful way 
Go slap me in the face with your disgraceful mouth...what comes around comes back around 

Verse 2: I treasure you and all the good you do 
Keep dreaming and believing in yourself 
Take action, so you can fulfill your satisfaction and shine anew 
You're apart of the crew of working on the self
Your actions are crystal clear to me 
My company is your pet peeve...your rebellious, ambitious spirit is so deceiving
Your interactions reveal that you're complicated as can be
You dishearten me to the point of grieving, but ironically, it's relieving 
Going with the flow of your friends
Going with the flow
Go...just go...

Pre-chorus: Go do what your heart desires
Forget about the haters and the liars
You were lost in your burnt paradise
Tears cloud your eyes, but you wear the mask of happy lies

Chorus: Tear down the walls 
Sorry for missing your calls
Go away from the dark
Before it leaves another scar...that hideous mark
What a shame that you're faith has faded away
Go do your own thing and backstab me why don't you...left on the dirty ground 
Don't worry about me - soon, you'll pay the price in a most harmful way 
Go slap me in the face with your disgraceful mouth...what comes around comes back around 

Verse 3: You were once placed on a far left shelf
You were the lonely Christmas elf 
You are special in my heart if I do say so myself 
Joy and pain shared with you was hard to deal with...but I will always remember you
I wish you luck in all you do as you walk that road alone 
Oh boy, down comes the rain and I see you scared out of your wits...but I will keep you in my memory so true 
I wish you were in my arms forevermore, but you're on your own 
Problems like ours don't last forever
Sooner or later, you'll find out that I wanted to protect you from the rainstorm
Did you know that I wanted to be your shelter to keep you safe and warm?
Where will you go?
Go?...

Pre-chorus: Go do what your heart desires
Forget about the haters and the liars
You were lost in your burnt paradise
Tears cloud your eyes, but you wear the mask of happy lies

Chorus: Tear down the walls 
Sorry for missing your calls
Go away from the dark
Before it leaves another scar...that hideous mark
What a shame that you're faith has faded away
Go do your own thing and backstab me why don't you...left on the dirty ground 
Don't worry about me - soon, you'll pay the price in a most harmful way 
Go slap me in the face with your disgraceful mouth...what comes around comes back around

Stranger Than Fiction

*warning* disturbing lines have been detected - you have been warned, readers. Okay, enjoy this somewhat deep and astounding poem from me that took days to write...>:)

I bet you anything that I'm the laziest guy in the world
Bored all the time and it's hard to concentrate when time passes me by
I wish I didn't exist because I have held on to these ugly conditions for so long...
Bipolar with a whole lot of addictions to put up with - don't feel sorry for me, for all along, 
Maybe He is telling me I'm strong...
And I do belong though I'm stranger than fiction
I need to figure out how to stand my ground when I face my addiction
It's reducing to affliction
Having a blank mind when I'm watching my life fade away 

We were on each other's team 
Until you ruined my self-esteem
We were all going to let out our merry scream,
But we ruined each other's self esteem

Drenched in silent wars the moment you had a halo about your devil horns 
My silent slumber spent on you...you were a delightful dream until my heart forlorns 
I see a gleam of lies 
In your universe eyes
I saw a reflection of hate...
A love that has arrived late

We are sheltering each other from the rainstorm
Silently still on my bed, awake with sudden dread
Admiring the moon as it shines so vibrant against an ebony sky
Show me how to live life without any worries in mind 
You're my miracle in disguise
You're my pocketful of illuminating light, attracting many flies

Quit ignoring my messages and I'm growing tired of your thoughtless goodbyes 
I'm trying to bite the bullet for you...the shadows of you gives me those temporary highs 
But what comes up must come down...
I'm so mind-blown cuz I was all alone 
Good news - you make me wear an upside down frown when you drive me 'round in town 
Once upon a time, I was a broken bone when I was left on my own, no one is picking up the phone 

Pornographic images flood my mind...I've lost my mind along the way
I'm going way down with a lonely frown 
My mind is numb and dumb and I'm blind with corruption's cum, intoxicated with a daydreamer's rum
Under a Crooked spell, screwed up in the head
Flipping out and drowning in dread 

Darling, I'm sorry that I isolate myself in my room of doom
There's hope to rely on when I associate with you...you are my spring bloom,
Reminding me that there's still beauty in my heart
But I thought I tore it all apart from the start
I adore you...darling who set me free from my torture chamber
I wept because I was blue from an attitude of solitude...I don't mean to act immature 

The unbearable insomnia 
Takes over me night after night
My eyes stare at the screen in awe
I'm trying to drown out the darkness with all remaining might
Exposed to the artificial light man has made for our pleasure alone
Suppose there's a reason I can't close my eyes...the reason is just left unknown 
The pain and suffering I see is out of sight
Spare the poor the riches that life has in store for them...they aren't the ones that deserve to be condemned 
Remove their lives from sorrows that doesn't serve them right
Why must I give in to my perverse ways? I still have a chance to treasure my innocence like a rare gem
The brawls of blasphemed boredom 
Has allowed me to put my guard down...and I regret losing time over my pleasures that I wish would fade away from me... God's Kingdom come!

I want to seek His holy rest, but I keep avoiding it as if I'm the east and His word is the west...
I'm trying my best not to be a pest...I don't want to watch my life pass away before my very eyes...I want to pass life's tough test 
If only God's spirit can wrap me up with divine bliss...
If only I had the energy to dispose of my hopelessness...
Believe it or not, God is still around 
I may be a lost and frightened child, but I'll prevent my faith from failing me now - I will not be left behind, but sooner or later, I'll be found...above the ground

The butterflies fly away as I sing on stage with rageless melody 
Musing about yesterday's tomorrow and my plans are set free
I'm gonna be okay, I just got to captivate my creativity 
Nothing lasts forever sadly, but I'm not gonna worry, for that will waste my time with me
But, let's be honest, I'm wanting more than just acceptance
Sure, I'm a shy guy that is used to such neglectance...this rejectance 

When I am around others,
I don't know what to say
I need you to know that I need something more than this this night...this godly day could give me...but hey
But what is life if you don't get my way?
Things won't just get better if I do nothing today
I'm awkward and random
Waiting for God's lovely kingdom
We all walk about in circles and waste time on our hands
I'll just say what I have in mind from now on...clap hands, for I've crashed with a hundred lands

Grinding on the gravel of my existence 
Now, it's getting stranger than fiction 
Rapt in rue out of the blue...fenced in by your ignorance 
Destined to dream the dream of reality, reigning over friction and jurisdiction, a rather jaded depiction 

You are the valley
I am the mountain
We go together frankly
So be not a sad, sad fountain

Wriggling my way out of the snare I'm in
Frolicking in the wilderness of weeds
Sprinkling salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor from deep within
Licking the flames of ice fire...doing dirty deeds

Tired of trying to be someone I'm not
I'm tired of you, leaving me in the dead center to rot 

I'm tired of me, getting tired and giving in to giving up...scars left to mend 
I'm tired of everyone and everything, so leave me alone 
I'll be stranger than fiction in your disgraceful face...a broken bone 
I'm tired of it all...I had enough of this dilemma I've been encountering for years on end 

Come on and spell out my rage on paper
Pluck out the thorns of thundering thatred from the roses of painstaking proses and watching endless, you-snooze-you-lose shows 
I was a hater, now I will catch you later
Out of luck...giving myself credit, not getting a big head over it...anything goes wherever the wicked wind blows

Hey Wait A Minute

Hey! Wait a minute, what's going on
Is this how it's supposed to be
All stooped over, walking with a cane
Always needing to pee 

Told where to go and what to eat
Try so hard not to drool
Remembering days when I was the one
In control, I was so cool

Mom didn't tell me there'd be days like this
Happy in her own little world
She wanted to give me the inside scoop
But her flag became unfurled

All I can say is, I've enjoyed my trip
If I bite the bullet tomorrow
It's all been an absolute downright blast
So don't go showing me sorrow!

Looking Forward to Tomorrow

Looking Forward to Tomorrow 

Verse 1: I had searched around for the love of mine for an awful long time 
My heart is on fire with gracious desire
Don't drag me down with your lack of confidence and your attitude, as sour as lime
You always point the finger at me, saying I'm the liar 
You drive me insane with your judgmental comments you throw at me
But I'm stronger than I realize and I'm a pilgrim in the world of woe and misery 

Pre-chorus: I will bite the bullet for you...I'll do anything for you too
I was losing self-control the moment you were gone 
Sooner or later, I will recover from this love flu
I have to move on and shine bright like the break of dawn 
I wanna show you that I have no regrets 
I wanna tell you all of my dirty little secrets 
With no trace of regret
I don't regret the time we met

Chorus: 
Tomorrow is another day
To shine on like the dawn
I will be having my way
Till my passion is gone 
Are you listening to the whispers I echo in your ear?
I am scared of the unknown and I'm trying to face that one and only fear 
Of losing you out of the blue
This love towards you ain't  something I can undo 
I can't help but say that I adore you 
And you are left without a clue
I was once in captivity, but now I'm free
I beseech your passionate touch, love of mine
Yesterday's tomorrow, I was walking on pins and needles, baby
All because I want to drink in your words, as bittersweet as wine 
Sorrow ain't on my mind,
Letting my high spirit unwind 
You are in my thoughts daily, I wouldn't sweep you under the rug
I'm addicted to you like my beloved drug 

Verse 2: my soul is begging for relief by the pangs of yesterday's sorrow
You give me hope in mind, reminding me that there's always tomorrow 
You lifted me up to cloud seven 
You were, at times, a hell in heaven 
Give me some space to think things through; it doesn't mean I don't love you anymore 
I'm struggling with these heartless sentiments...that knock me down on the floor 

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Verse 3: I'm crawling in my shell and I'm afraid to break free from my state of depression
I want to know if you love me sincerely and I always long for your affection
If I didn't have you, I would be an insecure, ignorant individual, walking around the City of Shame 
If I didn't love you, I would be this hated, jaded guy...always losing life's game 
Abide by my side 
Go along with the ride
I gave in to my lusts of my wicked heart...
I knew I was a sheer failure from the start...
The sun is shining my direction, but the cold rays of the moon are pulling me away from the light 
The stars in the sky are exposing the scars that I bore for years on end...wondering when I will fight the good fight 
Tonight, be my inspiration, my friend 
Alright, pardon my irritation and love me until the end

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Verse 4: My heart is jumping with cheer and joy
I'm no longer a kid's broken toy
Yesterday's sorrow will not hunt me down like prey 
I pray that tomorrow will be a way better day for me without a single dismay 
You make me feel like I'm significant and you crown me king of happiness
You seem to deal with me so perfectly and you healed me with words of gladness
You wiped away my tears of sadness that made me one with my madness
Time passes us by and there are butterflies in my stomach
After all this time we've been together, I still ache for that special love from above that I lack 
I will bite the bullet for you...I'll do anything for you too
I was losing self-control the moment you were gone 
Sooner or later, I will recover from this love flu
I have to move on and shine bright like the break of dawn 
I wanna show you that I have no regrets 
I wanna tell you all of my dirty little secrets 
With no trace of regret
I don't regret the time we met

Pre-chorus
Chorus 

Verse 5: You don't make me upset like a pile of debt would...promise me you won't grow cold 
I'm like the alarmed fish, caught in your infatuation net...it never gets old as long as we're bold
I've been trying to reach out to you by giving you my heart, 
Believing that you'd receive it as a priceless gift I'm wishing you'd keep with you...our friendship love is the most precious work of art that won't ever break apart 
Grieving because friends come and go...but tomorrow will give me a temporary lift 
I want to be positively sure that you won't depart from me 
I want you to know that you're the cure to my pain...you're my tomorrow's ecstasy 
We are stronger than we release
We are not alone
And we are not a failure -
That's the advice we should go by 
Tomorrow is going to outshine yesterday - that's no white lie

Faded in XOxo oxOX Fadin' Out

A special dedication to Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" song in her album "Beyoncé", which came out in 2013.
 
{intro}
I took a cat nap...yah put on your classic, clever-mini cap 
drank that sorrow sap, my companion and cool chap 
Torture me with your rap...
and all that crap in a snap of a finger and don't linger in my way of my goals that are like a marked-up, mishap map 
I wanna drag you up like an animal in due season 
Yes, I worship your scent of I-must-repent 
I was dust in this Earth of Mirth for an outlandish reason 
Why don't you get the hint that I love you to the highest extent right this very instant and outstant...
Yeah, it's true
I make up words
Out of the blue...
It's as absurd as herds of butter-birds 

{solo}
We are beautiful, bizarre nobodies 
We have alienated ambition 
We are a flawed flawless 
Perfection in passion progress

{verse 1}
You seriously got me addicted to your love affair
You bruised my wounds and you're gonna pay 
I'm only following the rules, so don't use me - that's just not playing fair, 
But you don't care if it's a game of truth or dare...glad I made your day by my past hesitation that led me astray, some say 
We bite the bullet to the core
Don't accuse me of being an attention hog...waiting for the rope of hope to hang the tragedies of this world of woe - there's a future in store 
What are you waiting for?

{hook x2}
Next time, there will not be a next time this sun-shining day
Don't play me in repeat like your favorite pop song...no way...
Missing your clutches of your touches
Craving those OXOX's like urges of sexes 
X out the lust in my heart 
I O it my work of lyric art 

{pre-chorus/rap}
Tripping out in my room
Double trouble doom...
Come on, 
Resume on
Call me yours...your ear ignores...
And I will do your chores...failure scores...
Faaaaaded in love...
Jaaaaaaded in hate...
Where is the luv from abuv?
Watchin' political debate...
Overrated society's term of in love and infatuation thereof 
Underrated you and I - foes and friends, but anything goes, whether it's from below or above 
Embrace the faces of graces from above under 
You departed from my arms of charms; now, we shatter asunder  
Like a mirror of poverty pain that reigns upon the city
Refrain from driving me insane in a lane of crimes I committed of...and I'm found pitilessly guilty 

{hook -whisper-}

{chorus}
Not yesterday's tomorrow
Not today to your dismay...
Not tomorrow's backwards sorrow
Maybe another day...you'll get your way...I'll give up my way for you to stay 
Faaaaaded in love...
Jaaaaaaded in hate...
Overrated society's term of in love and infatuation thereof 
I'll stray away from the aftershocks of your downfalls
Your uprisings are from your deepest, regretful failures...and your unanswered calls...and fixated freefalls 
Faaaaaded in love...
Jaaaaaaded in hate...
Overrated society's term of in love and infatuation thereof 

{verse 2}
You got me so hooked
Why did you overlook
The event that got booked?
You postponed our meet-up...you like my looks, not my mind or heart that is an endless book...
Sprinkle salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor 
My attitude of gratitude transformed into graze in your own maze attitude 
You cannot put a label on my untamed behavior 
When I'm up on stage with the spotlight showering down upon me, I rise above the audience of all eyes and I bodyquake with I, myself and me to shake off the rage of feeling misunderstood, not good in the hood in my ghetto neighborhood; I hope my vibrant voice is now understood
I'm an astonishing star
And I will go oh so far...
Wondering where You are...
To heal this scar with miracles in disguise that I can't despise, for it's on my top love bar, 
Despite the peace war... 
That hits us more and more... 

{hook x2}
{pre-chorus/rap}
{hook -whisper-}
{chorus}

{verse 3}
You're sick in the mind
You got me far behind
You'll be sorry when I'm gone
I welcome the dusk's sun 
The dawn will burn you alive
You're a bee in his busy hive 
Behave and be brave, Dave...
I save my breath by giving you a "farewell" brave wave
You stare into the illuminating efflorescence 
My attire is on fire with your desire, my fantastic fluorescence 
We bite the bullet to the core
Don't accuse me of being an attention hog...waiting for the rope of hope to hang the tragedies of this world of woe - there's a future in store 
What are you waiting for?
Ahhhh oooooh ooooh 
Ehhh ahh I-I-I....
Sick with dem luv floo 
I'm confident shy...
I'm modest...
I'm honest....
I'm humble...
I do crumble...
Arrogance was in my veins...
Yet, I still got prideless brains...
Ooooh ahhhhh 
I'm a handsome flaw...
Ohhhh yeahhh
My reputation, fame 'n fortune is meh and bleh 
God's Word means everything to me 
The World means close to nothing, I see...
I hear with an open ear...even my tear stains me with fear that I hold on to so dear...I taste with a tongue so sensitive up in here...I feel with much cheer, for God's aura is near...His spiritual soul replaces fear and doubt with faithful cheer, so crystal clear 

{hook x2}
{pre-chorus/rap}
{hook -whisper-}
{chorus}

{bridge}
I crave your crowning moments
I'm buzzed off of blessings that appear to be curses 
Supposedly, unloyal...unroyal...in your eyes of lies and helloed goodbyes that give you temporary highs that makes my heart cry out: why's oh why's 
Your verses curse and it ruins my self-esteem...sick of your rehearses 

{harmony}
And it's our ultimate mission
To count all our naughties...from everybody...or creepy "anybodies"
Let's engage in our future vision
To blur out all the fakes and the hotties...for we aren't a disgrace or a robotic with eccentricities 

{outro}
Lap up my pity's sorrow
Of yesterday's tomorrow 
Wrap your wings around me
Take flight in our reality fantasy
You're all up and down in my grill — got me mind-blown, you silly-Billy clown — you're my thrill, just take a chill pill and hush, little baby...I've been lovin' and hatin' you lately...frankly, honestly
I want to feel your need for me, so I can flee from captivity...
I need to numb your want for me to be...free...sincerely...
But, it's impossible
Or is it possible? 
I doubt it is, indeed...
I'll fulfill my deed...after I feed off of my want and need...
And it's you
I adore You too...
But who knew...
I'd be the hue of blue...
You can't deny
I'm faded in-in-in love 
You're the crow that flies too high 
And I'm the-the city dove
Purrrrrr hurrrrrr 
You're my black and white armor...never in errorrrrrr 
I...am...sure...
I...endure...
I take a tour into your busy-lazy life 
Hurrrrrr puurrrrr 
Life's gettin' harder, for my past, present and future is a miiiiiighty blurrrrr 
You...are...cure...
So...impure...
You take a tour into my pleasant strife

The Aura of Time: Don't Ask Why I'm an Ambivert

***I KNOW IT'S LONG...please don't tell me to shorten my poems or songs because I'm expressing myself through poetry. Thank you ahead of time. I did write concise poems. Check those haikus I wrote on this site. Go for it if you like short and concise verses.***

The aura of time-time-time
The aura of time-time-time
The aura of time-time-time
What-what-what goes around comes back around-round-round…
Don’t make a sound, dunk down to the ground-ground-ground…
This time, this squanderin’…XOXOin’ time…
This is my pozitiv POE rhyme…rhyme…rhyme… 
The aura of time-time-time
The aura of time-time-time
The aura of time-time-time
I will shine…you’ll shine…
For, you are mine…mine…mine…

{verse 2} Where have you been all my life-life-life?
You game me-me-me peace strife-strife…me, the husband wife…
Reality’s demise cuts me like a jagged knife-knife-knife
I’m alive! I survived! I’m alive! HANDSOME HURTS….HURTS….HANDSOME HURTS…
I need to get a life and so do you…SIC of UR outbursts…you are one of those foolish experts
I’m my worst enemy, my bestest of friends – I take regret’s seat, sneezing on the sad beat
I was the overcomer of my obstacle until not all ends meet – that’s not at all neat-neat-neat
I’m hard not to be considered bias or a discriminator in society…that’s the battle I do tackle
I want to be under your roof, but the sky is the limit…in the Lord’s terribly terrific tabernacle
I’ve given up for the two of us (to be together as one)
I want to be in the same bus with you without a fuss (the battles we fought=we won)
You’re being a diffult guy, I ain’t gonna lie…truth hurts
I’m acting confident shy; like the ambiverts…with their balanced efforts…
Our love affair is so fair 
Right now, let’s live life
Without a fear or a care
Shatter away all remaining strife

{hook} {pre-ch} {ch}

{verse 3} I’ve carried off on the wrong place at the wrong time
But, I’m carrying on and moving on from this struggle-of-a-time
Gettin’ weary off of your shadow sun ways…you’re masked happy-craze
This time-time-time, I’ll make our time sublime like those crazy ol’ days
Where have you been lately
Lately-lately-lately…hunny bunch?
I haven’t seen you frankly…
Frankly-frankly, a bit shady much?
Do you have any sympathy? Empathy? 
You, instead-ead-ead, give me apathy…
So heartless of you to desert me for life-life…for life-life
And the tragedy of your departure gives me peaceless strife
I’ve given up for the two of us (to be together as one)
I want to be in the same bus with you without a fuss (the battles we fought=we won)
You’re being a diffult guy, I ain’t gonna lie…truth hurts
I’m acting confident shy; like the ambiverts…with their balanced efforts…
Our love affair is so fair 
Right now, let’s live life
Without a fear or a care
Shatter away all remaining strife

{hook} {pre-ch} {ch}

{freestyle} Your love is killing me softly 
Your French kiss is making me blush awfully
I’m fond of it day in and night out…then, you hushed my victory shout
Without a single doubt, we went our own route…what’s that all about?
You’re my sheltering abode 
I’m prince charming, not the toad
I can carry your emotional load
If you can return the favour and guess my clever code 
It’s your touch, it’s your lips against mine
All of you loves all of me – I’m feelin’ fine
You are a friend-till-the-end and a foe-foe-foe-fo-show
Though, we go our own flow, you know…you should know…
I don’t know where your blessed breeze blow 
or… 
where your sunlit moonbeams shimmer aglow
for…
I am the dove of the day that embraces my somewhat unique flow…I go to and fro
And
You’re the midnight crow, stop being a drama king on the Big Bang Theory show…
Understand
That I’m nocturnal to the core
Considered an attention whore
What are we both waiting for?
There’s some down and dirty XOXO’s that we haven’t done yet, but it’s in store in the future for shore,
The one I adore…
My opportunity door…
From the sky to the floor…
So hear me out – don’t ignore me as if I’m your chemistry teacher, lecturing without further ado…being a ridiculous, mean-*** bore…fo-shore…need I explore and implore?

{bridge}Your elegant envy, your stubborn ways hit me hard…
So I bite the bullet, though eye, alone, is the bipolar bard… 
Our XOXO’s and our cuddles…pleasure schemes…
Fulfilled pleasure beyond measure dreams and goals, not falling away by the seams – 
I adore I can’t deny…DoN’t AsK wHy ?.!?.!
No lie-lie-lie…so don’t cry-cry-cry…
Our hello got goodbyed
Our goodbye got helloed
Aloha, baby bliss from afar…my shiny star…
I’m so near to you in this stuffy, black car…
Ur my favourite ride…
Abide by my side,
Don’t subside,
My lovely ode abode

OPINIONS

Obviously positively negative or negatively positive...going through pros and cons in my daily routine as time flies by oh so swift 
Painstaking tears are like waterfalls...tasting the different and diverse coping mechanisms of life as a whole...chaos and peace takes its toll
Isolating myself from the loud crowd...introvert and extrovert time and time again and  on beat on fleek on the drums of my numbing noggin 
Neglected, rejected, accepted, fascinated...odd, but true, having no clue what to do
Invigorated by opinions, pure or impure, that are 8 shades of grey...but hey, let's be redeemed and esteemed by God Most High, a God of truth we can't deny...so, evaporate the fear and lies in your mind's eye
Oblivious to the dilemmas that were aiming my way, but I'll bite the bullet all night and day...awfully offended, maxed out like an overused credit card that's been spent on and now jaded; somewhat apprehending this personal apprehension, hoping you can emphasize this envy I hold with me in my woes and worthless wallet
Nothing much on my mind, but never denying the power of God's hope and faith...gracious evermore in the sight of my Priceless Father, unlike any other 
Shame on me for being a rude dude or an insecure individual; I must have that oh so familiar, yet unpredictable attitude of optimistic aptitude...graze in your own maze, heart that is a numb drum in my chest, thumping with anger still unknown to me...but an anger that's self - absorbent and self - opinionated...sophiscated and arrogant - instead, I should be simply humble and undoubtably confident

Art Feeds My Soul

Art Feeds My Soul By Rick Rucker I have been, for two months, in my new home, The things we have done to the place, would fill a tome, The smell of paint, on the air, as it is new, Carpets and blinds, and hardwood floors, done too, New sink, and fixtures, and bathroom mirror, A grandfather clock that I hold most dear, New lighting, in and out, and here and there, Served to show the walls, which were quite bare, Yesterday, came the time to bite the bullet, To find the trigger, and finally pull it! Something that had me feeling bad, At a friend’s, a King’s ransom in art, I had, The artists had labored for years, by hand, To paint the finest art in the land. On the walls, not a trace, As I never before had the space, To show them as they deserved, To display them, for so long preserved, Tomorrow, a smile will light my Face, As I see the beauty that my walls, does grace, Prior to yesterday, my Home was whole, Now, it has the Power to feed my Soul, Even with every odd chance, Warms me with but a fleeting glance, Their haunting images are a constant inspiration, For the creators, I have nothing but admiration, To think that silk, and paint could cause, Such emotion, gives me pause, I am sure that I shall always feel, The feelings that these works reveal, I shall ever hold the longing in my Heart, Engendered by these works of Art. I hope to forever be, In love with Beauty that I see!

Even If the Sun Refuses to Shine

Verse 1:
What’s the point of promises if they end up broken?
My heart is racing over the fact that you’re gone away
Can someone show me how to shake away the tension?
I don’t want to keep on walking away from this dismay
This dismay that grows endlessly like weeds
Even if the sun refuses to shine,
There’s always a light of delight to discover…I know the darkness feeds
Can’t you see the midnight stars are all align?

Pre-Chorus:
These signs are telling me that there’s a chance to recover
Recover from the wounds of the past – don’t worry, I understand
We are stronger than a hundred soldiers in the battlefield of greed and power
These mind games that you and I play are getting out of hand…

Chorus:
Don’t fret or get upset…stay strong!
I understand what you have gone through
I have fallen in love with grief for so long
I can tell something is bothering you
Even if the sun refuses to shine our direction,
We will protect each other from the dark forces of iniquity 
You build me up with your everlasting affection 
Heal our disgraceful scars that expose our weakness, our misery 

Verse 2: 
Ignite our inspired imagination
Illuminate us with the insight of moving forward
I gave it my best shot to gain anticipation 
Let us take wing in sunlit glee like a happy-go-lucky bird
I adore this once-in-a-lifetime sensation
Even if the sun refuses to shine,
I’m content with you finally being mine
Deep down, you and I have the strength to bite the bullet
So that we don’t feel this ridiculous regret

Pre-Chorus:
These signs are telling me that there’s a chance to recover
Recover from the wounds of the past – don’t worry, I understand
We are stronger than a hundred soldiers in the battlefield of greed and power
These mind games that you and I play are getting out of hand…

Chorus:
Don’t fret or get upset…stay strong!
I understand what you have gone through
I have fallen in love with grief for so long
I can tell something is bothering you
Even if the sun refuses to shine our direction,
We will protect each other from the dark forces of iniquity 
You build me up with your everlasting affection 
Heal our disgraceful scars that expose our weakness, our misery 

Verse 3:
I’m scared because I’m unprepared for what lies ahead
I try to put all doubts and worries to bed
But, the words you said to me thoughtlessly are left unsaid
I shouldn’t have taken offense of it
I shouldn’t be so sensitive or throw a childish fit
This jealousy I’ve been holding against you is taboo
Day by day, I learn to accept our differences and I learn to love you too
 Why do I pretend to have someone by my side? 
Look at all the tears I’ve cried
I made an effort to swallow my pride
Why do I waste my time, trying to find a place to hide?

Pre-Chorus:
These signs are telling me that there’s a chance to recover
Recover from the wounds of the past – don’t worry, I understand
We are stronger than a hundred soldiers in the battlefield of greed and power
These mind games that you and I play are getting out of hand…
These signs are telling me that there’s a chance to grow together
Together, we will not bend or break, but mend – we’ll make a stand
We are stronger than a hundred soldiers when we are elevating one another
These mind games that you and I play are getting out of hand…

Chorus:
Don’t fret or get upset…stay strong!
I understand what you have gone through
I have fallen in love with grief for so long
I can tell something is bothering you
Even if the sun refuses to shine our direction,
We will protect each other from the dark forces of iniquity 
You build me up with your everlasting affection 
Heal our disgraceful scars that expose our weakness, our misery

Bridge:
We are treading the rocky road of recovery
We are winners in heart, for we’ve ran the extra mile
What doesn’t kill you makes you invincible and that is the ticket to liberty
It’s not just me, myself and I…it’s you and I for a while
Or…for eternity…
If that’s a possibility!
Even if the sun refuses to shine,
We’ll be safe and sound
Hopefully, everything will be just fine
We were lost, but now we’re found
We were once buried in the ground
Now, we’re rising above the surface
Embracing vast grace, making so much progress
There is no need to second guess

You Caught Me

You never fail to impress me
You were the light in the dark
You caught me before I fell deep
You never seemed to disappoint me
With your healing grace
With your healing grace

You never fail to impress me
You said these words of love
You search for me like a lost sheep
You never pushed my buttons, honey 
I see the wilderness of rage
But, you are on a different page
I see the mountains of pain
But, you are the magnificent rain 

You never fail to impress me
You were the light in the dark
You caught me before I fell deep
You never seemed to disappoint me
With your healing grace
With your healing grace
You fought for my safety many times
You fed me with ancient nursery rhymes
With your lovely voice
With your lovely voice

You never fail to impress me
Keep shining like the break of dawn
You were broken, but now, you’re whole
Reap what you sow and take a run
Into the wilderness of my bittersweet reveries
Embrace me, for I am the blessed breeze
Bite the bullet and believe…
Bite the bullet and believe…
Bite the bullet and grieve not…
Bite the bullet and leave me to rot…

You never fail to impress me
You were the light in the dark
You caught me before I fell deep
You never seemed to disappoint me
With your healing grace
With your healing grace
You fought for my safety many times
You fed me with ancient nursery rhymes
With your lovely voice
With your lovely voice

I felt you next to me all of the sudden
You are so good at hiding in the shadows
I melt in your arms and I say nothin’
I have met my end at last and I feel your sunlit glows
My heart ain’t made out of stone
It’s a beautiful thing to be alone
I hope you are still thinking of me in your mind
If not, I give you permission to leave me behind

You never fail to impress me
You were the light in the dark
You caught me before I fell deep
You never seemed to disappoint me
With your healing grace
With your healing grace
You fought for my safety many times
You fed me with ancient nursery rhymes
With your lovely voice
With your lovely voice

Really feeling freedom at my finger tips
Finally, we meet eye to eye and lips to lips
The moon is fading away 
The sun welcomes me today
The shrouds of clouds weep
I promise not to make a peep

Nevertheless, you never fail to impress me
Even when I’m feeling this strange misery
I feel numb and hardened like a star that lost its shine…
I feel the need to be loved right now
Often, I wish you were mine, for you’re looking fine…
I know you’ll make me smile somehow
With your healing grace
With your lovely voice
With your healing grace
With your lovely voice
With your healing grace,
Making me want to rejoice

You caught me by mere surprise
You caught me with dazzling eyes

Time Does Not Wait For Pity

Can I have your attention please;
Just a moment of your time.
In life we have no guarantees;
We must live with our begrime.

No do overs where it matters most;
No chance to sit idly by.
To sulk within our morose;
Or play into the conquer and divide.

Let us be as the bundle of twigs;
And come together as relations.
May we never attempt to renege;
The promises to the next generations.

Get your minds right peoples;
Balance and harmonize.
Media makes you sheeples;
Regroup and optimize.

We may not change the past;
Nor should we forget it either.
The future is our's to cast;
Bite the bullet, not the teether.

Your wounded pride is no excuse;
Your anger serves you little.
Warrior up and be of use;
These times are far too critical.

Gather together and unite;
Make a solid commitment.
Your inner spirit.... Ignite!
We must choose to circumvent.

Hand in hand, heart to heart;
For the betterment of all humankind.
Let none distract or tear apart;
Or deflect our state of mind.

Sarcastic Comments

So sick, ashamed, tuke-deh-blaim guilty 
And tired of your sarcastic comments that tease me on purpose
Really not an accidental thing in the first place
Crazy talk I do on a daily basis
Aggravated beyond reason and logic and behind-closed-pupils emotions 
So afraid to change my mind about breaking up with you and making the mistake of going back together with you
Totally an incomplete work of art from the start...I adored you, Seth Art from the heart...but I'm torn apart - we are opposite isles at Walmart
I claimed and nurtured caring, affectionate sayings and lines of endless blessings and miracles that ended up being cursed and obstacles
Clever, but a deceiver...looks are awfully appealing, but what's in the inside are a billion books...left unread and left for dead instead...left on the literature bed, molding and rusting in pangs of dread that piles up in my head like debt overhead 

Chillin like a villain with a tranquil mindset for a change
Oh my word, I will forgive the words you uttered and will utter ASAP 
Mesmerized by your love that is for naught
Messed-up in the head mentally and emotionally...happiness and joy, like weeds that were once delight dandelions, distraughtly rot and remotely fought...a frenzied, fired-up fraught as an aftershock of oblivion's ignorance 
Elegance turn to hideous results, unless you turn that around by mere coincidence altogether, which will most likely not happen, knowing you very rebellious and an uncompromising, headstrong head that is robust - but, break, it must
Never flawless and willing it all away...these thunder and rain bolts
Truly, you better not shoot me down or I'll bite the bullet and rip up that gown of galore glory and gracious glamor displayed dazzlingly, non-drastically projected on screens of hope strings that won't snap off by the single snip of the sensuous, shapeless scissors 
Sanity's lines come into play the moment the insanity lies on the paper and not on my scraggly soul again...refrain from pouring your vermillion drizzle upon us and naturally, slip inside the same bumpy, rowdy bus with us for a time...there's no need to hide, subside, cuss or fuss

Run-Away Train

Under grey autumn skies
Rain and teardrops trace
Washing down upon my face
In this barren place
In full disgrace
I screamed heavenward
Some words absurd
Only to be once again unheard
Here we are again
Duking it out
In a final bout
With a God who carries
All the clout
Feel like a puppet on a string
No control of anything
No path to follow
No song to sing
The rain beats down
Skies turn dark and cold
Angry clouds over me unfold
A price is paid  
A soul bought  and sold.
Not worth the dirt
If truth be told
Years pile up 
since my birth
I wonder my worth 
upon this earth
Does no good
to cry in vain
And as time passes 
Again and again
I bite the bullet 
Warm up to the pain
So for now i will refrain 
And stand here naked in the rain
Just me and God
On this run-away train.

Bite the Bullet

I dreamt of embracing the abyss
I slept in silence and grief
Exterminate my negativity
Make me feel whole...fill in my holes...and lead me to eternal bliss and prosperity

Time is ticking like a bomb about to blow up into smoke and flame
It alarms to say this, but how DARE you waste my valuable time

Bite the bullet (ooh ohh ohh ohh yeah)
Bite the bullet...see right through it...
See right through my pain
And I'm still waiting for His healing rain
To shower upon me relief... 
(ooh x7) 

Don't drown in stress and misery...reach and hold on to the rope of hope
With a firm grip...
Of reality
Or are you willing to accept
My helping hand?
Allow me escort you to the Promise Land

Bite the bullet (ooh ohh ohh ohh yeah)
Bite the bullet...see right through it...
See right through my pain
And I'm still waiting for His healing rain
To shower upon me relief... 
(ooh x7) 

I dreamt of embracing the abyss
I slept in silence and grief
Exterminate my negativity
Make me feel whole...fill in my holes...and lead me to eternal bliss and prosperity

Bite the bullet (ooh ohh ohh ohh yeah)
Bite the bullet...see right through it...
See right through my pain
And I'm still waiting for His healing rain
To shower upon me relief... 
(ooh x7) 

Time is ringing like a church bell in the night...it's your time to say goodbye and it's our time to explore the light...
In goodbye...oh, how time flies...
Conceal the farewells...and blow away the woeful lies

Bite the bullet (ooh ohh ohh ohh yeah)
Bite the bullet...see right through it...
See right through my pain
And I'm still waiting for His healing rain
To shower upon me relief... 
(ooh x7) 

Bite the bullet
And snatch the rope
Ignore to rising debt
And marry good luck...
And catch gratifying hope
Before it slips away into the raging waters

Bite the bullet (ooh ohh ohh ohh yeah)
Bite the bullet...see right through it...
See right through my pain
And I'm still waiting for His healing rain
To shower upon me relief... 
(ooh x7) 

You and I will watch the sunset and the gorgeous waterfalls
If I'm not available, leave me a message and remember to always remember that
God always answers His calls

Invincibility

You were afraid because the darkness 
Revealed to you something you have never seen before
Breathless and determined, 
I had to let go of the pressures of everyday living just to be here with you 
Just to be reassured that you are everywhere I go 
I can't live without a trace of you, I hope you know

Pre-Ch: I'm stronger than I realize
I'm not alone
And I'm not a failure
I won't fall victim to you anymore, feeling so un-insecure 
I will stand up for what's right, I'm pretty sure 
So back off or I'll play rough
I don't play mind games 
I won't feel any shame 

Ch: We are safe and sound now...
We survived somehow...wow...
Maybe because we are invincible 
Don't treat us like we're invisible 
The closeness of our hearts warms me up inside, 
For I know for certain that there's a brighter future in store 
Regretful and blowing away in the wind, 
I had to face restless nights to notice that what doesn't kill you makes you invincible...
Our willpower will stay true

I wish I was bold to the bone 
Fix these scars that I bore alone 
Illuminate my mindset that sucks up the debris of negativity 
I count on you to make my cup half full instead of half empty 
I have grown accustomed to you the moment you opened my eyes to the light
This fondness has made me a man of courage 
Ever since I first laid eyes on you, you lit me up with delight
It's all good to be true, but I'm not ready for marriage 

Pre-Ch
Ch 

Invincibility is buried deep inside our cranium 
Vulnerability is my enemy that beat me down until I was nothing but stepped-on, gross gum
Because of you, 
I'm forced to smile during the face of tribulation 
I'll just assume 
That trusting you will lead to unimaginable sensation
I have thick skin, so I have no need to hide 
I can bite the bullet
The pain I have concealed inside -
See right through it

Pre-Ch
Ch 

Under the spell of havoc and lies that I detest...
God will drive away my sins as far as East to West...
Help is on its way
I see you as clear as day
I conquered these hardships that were hard to face
My invincible nature was in me...a grace that has a minute trace
