SHATTERED MEMORIES

SHATTERED MEMORIES

The tears begin to fall
as I started walking down the hall,
I soon started thinking of you,-
No, I’m not confused.

They say love hurts
I guess it must be true,-
deep within my heart
He left his marks.

I’m shattered
because of the battering,
He has no excuse,-
for the abuse.

I would see the writing on the wall
as I started walking down the hall,
I have seen my old bedroom,
where the memories are so very dark,
there goes my heart.

I stood so alone,
as the tears filled my eyes,
It was midnight,
the ancient clock striking the hour.

the moon gave a dimer glow,
upon on the snow,
Oh, those memories,-
that keeps making their way back to me.

NO EXCUSE

NO EXCUSE


I have done it again hoe would say
while he looks my way,
the tears began to fall,-
while he is screaming down the hall.

This agony I feel makes me ill,
They say love hurts-
But I say never like this!
He hits with his fest
as he throws his fits.

Each day and night
I can feel my spirit sink
my heart shatters, and my blood pours
as he beats me on the wooden floor.

The years are gone
but his words keep caring on,
I still hear him say;
I love you,
But I’m scared someone will take you away.

He always told me this after the abuse
leaving me feeling so used,-
this beast has no excuse
and I will never give him one.

VULNERABILITY

VULNERABILITY

I Proceeded to face my vulnerability
it crowned me in a place of darkness
where I couldn’t find any forgiveness,
I was dwindling in all these pains
of a life unkindness.

Where people walk around in blindness
Oh, what a mess I was lead,-
that prepares me to walk in the weathering nightmare
where it has a rebirth in a place of thorns
that has ascended from wild roses in the fields,

oh, sleepy earth look what you have done
all beauty of life is disappearing in the shadows
where my spirit is vexed,-
I hear all the chattering coming from this old town.
It has a way of keeping me down
feeling there isn’t away out.

I watch how people grow more foolish by the days.
They tried so hard to control me from doing what I love
they have shamed my name, called me many things
watching me bleed away on those rainy nights
where I did procrastinate from my typing
Oh, I had always loved writing.

But when I am alone I have time to think
but when the silence makes its way in
my spirit soon sinks,-
I hear would hear all those nagging little voices
eating away all my courage to face another day
leaving me so vulnerable because of the abuse
leaving me feeling so used.

WORLD OF GRAY

WORLD OF GRAY

Things will be different I would say
as I looked around in my world of gray;
I’d tried so hard to never lose faith,
and to look for brighter days,-
praying for all this pain to go away.

SEARCHING

SEARCHING

The searching for what will make the heart feel good
for what will make us live forever in that one special person’s eye’s
that seems to matters more than life.
We see the portraits of beauty and fame,
but what does it all really mean?
Will it give that unconditional love?
Or will it bring amazement in your life?
Some of us will find true love, others will not.
what a dreadful picture of throwing it all away
when you have something to live for….
Because in the end it all will be done.

WHERE WE ONCE LIVED

WHERE WE ONCE LIVED

I drove by where we once lived
It wasn’t long before I pulled into the drive,
Oh, the tears that started rolling from my eyes
I got so many images of what was,
and what isn’t any longer.

INNOCENCE IS STILL INTACT

INNOCENCE IS STILL INTACT

Innocence is still intact,-
no matter how bad this life attack me,
at night in my cold darken room
where it is I cry,
I would wrap my self in blankets
where I felt safe,-
where I kept my faith
and I would pray….for this nightmare to go away.

I know I am strong enough
to fight this agony,-
Oh, how the rush of a cold crying wind
would soak me down in tears,-
that brought on the fears,
that lasted for years,
Where all my strength begins to fail me.

When I saw those hollow eyes staring back at me
where shallow lies,-
in those painful times,
as this darkness breed on the mind,
where all I hear all those cries.
Oh, my dear God what is happening to me
Why, do I keep having these bad nightmares?

But when I awake, I found myself in lack of faith
because Dark Angel was standing before me.

SHOCK

SHOCK

Switched from hot to cold,-
my blood felt iced and my body
lie down in bed as if I was dead.

COOKING POT

COOKING POT

I looked around me, everything was dark
as if my own eyes were completely shut,
that the would have come to an end,
my eyelids were very heavy,-
like I had a sleeping spell on me,
I was seeing things that were given me
very bad dreams,-
the stars are all on dim
they skip around the sky,
upon the sea, I have seen the reflections of he
standing over me,-
the colored moon beamed upon the land
upon everything my eyes could see;
I tried so hard to open my eyes
But I couldn't it was as if I was dead,
I dreamed many dreams in my head
I see things of an ancient time,
I felt I have been bond to my bed;
as if I was quite insane of true madness,
in my mind, I saw a different set of eye
looking back at me from another time,
I see slaves dancing around me,
crying out to a king that stands before me,
the sky was dark; the fair is hot;
I could see a big cooking pot,
words of their time weren't of mine,
you could feel the evil all around;
the anger browed in the pot,
words of truth weren't in their mouths,
lies and so much hate with not faith,
Witches are casting out their evil spells,
giving a queen life of a living hell,
their face turned to me
as I started to scream,
I have seen many things that come to me
like something of darkening dreams,
they were very old holding no youth,
I forget your name they would say
In a cloud of smoke;
frogs are being tossed in the old cooking pot,
a chicken tongue, blackbird eyes,
bugs of the desert land,
the thunder in the ancient sky roared while
the storm moved on by;
I see holly ones being persecuted;
the words of accurate knowledge
was told to never be promoted on the land
where the old witches stand
on blood, stained sand, that was a command,
words of truth are forbidden;
enemies casting names of thee into the pot of hell
while somewhere rings a bell;
bodyguards took the prison ones
out of the cage; those who have lost their way,
ravens are flying around to eat up on the dead
the ones who have lost their heads,
words of temptations of the flash
dancing around the cooking pot,
my body started feeling cold
I didn't have any more control
while lies where being told,
my eyelids were heavy as they could be
I was cast into a deep sleep.

YOUR NAME

YOUR NAME

My Spirit sings
every time I hear your Name
what a beautiful thing,-
when it happened in Spring,
the moment you interned in my life
I had never felt the same,
Yes, I will give you all the blame
because I don’t feel ashamed,-
I will keep calling out your Name,
I will never let you go,
you are the keeper of my soul
I will always love you.
