Bring Me

Falling I'm falling to something I don't even know 
reaching scratching
hold on don't let me go
it's not me to save you
you were the one
to make me want to keep my soul
that was thrown away
don't know when
don't know how
your eyes I can only see as your looking
looking back at me
in a dream but this isn't a dream
this is real
death will break my fall
falling I'm falling
reaching screaming your name 
don't let me go I was blind 
only you can save me from this life
for my life to breathe again to live again
you see me don't you
only you can see me
only you know me
save me from my life to begin to live again
to want again
to love my life again
bring me back to life
to feel your heart beating
only you can bring me to life
the one I lost
when you went away
only you can save me
to make me want to keep my soul
half of it is gone
only you
bring it back to me
only you
can make me whole again
as I'm falling
falling crying out your name

Only Because Of You

The first time we met,
A friendship of truth you offered,
The darkest secrets I kept hidden,
Even from myself.
In an instant I told you everything without haste,
My soul told me you were the only one,
To keep them hidden,
From anyone boundly safe.
Where did you come from,
Of all times now,
Why wasn't it sooner,
Now when only our life is half lived.
Some reason I've known you,
Before the first breath of life hear I am,
Right or wrong,
My words can only speak truth,
Without a thought or possible disappointment,
I can not come to bring myself,
A lie passing my lips,
My heart can only see the truth,
Filling my soul when you look into my eyes,
You already know me,
You see everything about me.
My lows, My highs,
You are the only one,
Who can see the passion I have for life,
If my eyes became blind,
I can see you bright as day,
Bright as the sky,
You feel my needs,
In silence I cry out your name,
As I turn, there you are,
Sound of your voice,
The sight of your face,
As my world is complete,
Only because of you.
Alllowing my love to come into your heart,
Taking me to your magical place,
Only because of you.

Save My Life

Today isn't yesterday, if only it was ahead 14 maybe 11 give or take a few less month's
my life can begin to breathe again.
Not watching for shadows coming out the corner of my eye, lay my head down with closing
my eyes.
Not going to nowhere, that's the truth no lie.
I can't even relax my back let alone someone seems everyone in our past from today which
you might as well always live the ongoing repeating yesterday.

Over on the right side cheaters, liar's, busters, leaving while kicking you down.
On the left back stabbers, parasites
A name The Dope Game
It's up to you to spot them out
It's hard my girl had to
read your letter saying this to me
Since my man and you are together are together locked up in the Nevada State penitentiary

Yesterday ends this the light switching onto black maybe once in awhile white to the
world The Dope Game you call it for me today
These back stabbers, parasites, cheaters, liar's stealing to where you have no life
while promising you yes I'll stay alive
The day you walk away from the Nevada state Penitentiary

The night I saw you last, leaving to get your hustle on, your dogs following close behind
June 4this the date I'll never forget, your world became the beginning of your judgment
day
The world I refused to except
This you always knew
Now thrown in a world, hustle, game
The day I couldn't choose
Let alone lie to you
Now you know a name The Dope Game
Life without security
Now I tasted the salted wound
Learn to survive from the advice you preached to me passing you by on video
92 times to be exact yes I'm still as live.

Bring Me

Gazing at your face,
Thought aloud he is the one who would be a faithful love. 
Started as friends became lovers now my everything. 
How did this turn wrong. 
Your words I heard truth, 
Your doubt I saw blind, 
How did this turn wrong. 
Believed rumors only to be lies, 
Raise of your hand mark my body, 
Anger become to taunt, 
Everything is fine, If only my soul could hide. 
Your voice takes me away, 
Beyond the heavens swinging on a star, 
Loving you more than my self my intentions pure. 
How did this turn wrong. 
Loosing my way to be someone else, 
To keep your love, loving only me. 
How did this turn wrong. 
An angel asking to be mortal, 
Granted my wish, your soul how I love. 
How did this turn wrong. 
I face the promise I could not complete, 
A journey without knowing. 
How did this turn wrong. 
I am the fallen angel, now finding my way.
I give thanks to you, 
I felt the pain,the sorrow, 
happiness tears of joy, 
Breathing your love that I know once true.

Fallen Angel

Gazing at your face, 
Thought aloud he is the one, 
Who would be a faithful love. 
Started as friends, Became lovers, Now my everything. 
How did this turn wrong. 
Your words I heard truth, Your doubt I saw blind, 
How did this turn wrong. 
Believed Rumors only to be lies, 
Raise of your hand mark my body, 
Anger become to taunt, 
Everything is fine, If only my soul could hide. 
Your voice takes me away, 
Beyond the heavens, Swinging on a star, 
Loving you more than my self, My intentions pure. 
How did this turn wrong. 
Loosing my way to be someone else, 
To keep your love, Loving only me. 
How did this turn wrong. 
An angel asking to be mortal, Granted my wish, 
Your soul how I love. 
How did this turn wrong. 
I face the promise I could not complete, 
A journey without knowing. 
How did this turn wrong. 
I am the fallen angel, Now finding my way, 
I give thanks to you, I felt the pain,
the sorrow, Happiness tears of joy, 
Breathing your love that I know once true.

Stars Of Love

The moments we shared,
Became memories.
For each one created,
A new star, so perfect, so bright,
Appears in the sky.
A story told, once upon a time,
The fairy tale begins,
As the pages turn by the finger tips of the wind.
For everyone to see,
Now they begin to read.
A love so perfect, so true
You loving me,
Me loving you.
Like the heavens high and above,
Far and beyond any ocean,
We shall never come to the end.

A Masterpiece Created For Only Me

So beautiful, so flawless
A masterpiece of creation
For hours admired without distraction
Looking into the painting
Every color changes with perfection
Changing the size of brush strokes
Dipping into the oils
Not one coming
Not one leaving
Looking into the masterpiece
The painting admired
From near
From far
From the heavens above so brilliant
A timeless creation
So honest, so trust worthy 
His masterpiece delivered only to me
Knowing I shall love you
For all eternity

An Angel Amanda

You have given me the gift
That no other could ever give,
That is an angel from heaven,
The gift is you.
Only love of innocence that is unconditional,
Filled with smiles and laughter,
Held within my heart that we both share the key.
You are the reason my eyes can see,
You are the air that makes me breathe.
You were given the day,
So special just as God made you, especially for me.
My daughter who was born,
On the first day of spring.
I give praise and thankfulness,
To you Amanda, for still loving me.
As your mommy and forever your friend,
I will and for eternity, vow to you,
To walk on earth side by side, hand in hand.
When it is said from the heaven's above,
We shall soar through the cloud's,
And the star's in the sky,
Day after day, night after night,
We shall be together,
Throughout infinity.

Shattered

How do I start,
Picking up the pieces left from my life that shattered,
In the warm month of June the exact day fell on the 9th.
Always overhear in passing,
A friend consoling of someone close,
The conversation you may  hear listening with overwhelm of care.
Saying to myself what any normal human being with compassion I'm so sorry,
For a brief moment sadness over comes, 
Never thinking it will happen to me.
Now here I sit alone looking at the stars that fills the sky,
While close friends smiling, laughing inside,
They don't even know how I've fallen apart inside.
They only see happiness I forced myself to play, 
I can only cry while I hide.
My tears over fill my soul,
Drowning behind closed doors feeling sorry for myself,
Even if it's only a brief moment. 
Still no one can see the broken pieces,
Left on my shattered life,
Awaiting for that final day without hope,
without expressing for anyone to hear.
There is always tomorrow,
But my tomorrow never comes,
The future now only ends,
The moment I heard on the warm month of June on the 9th day. 
I had to start hiding my tears,
To make myself smile to those who care,
While my soul is now drowning behind the closed doors.

Chains Of Steel

These chains of steel locked without a key
Protecting my heart and soul
Of the pain, the torture
The devastation I did endure once maybe more
I trusted all of you, as I opened to share all of me
To face the reflection, watching my heart, my eyes
Bleeding tears for the first time
My heart now breaking through me
I'm forcing it far back
Mending my body with chains of steel
Sealing it closed with the fire light flame
My screams of pain echoes across the ocean
For the world to hear
Falling to their knees, crying for me and my happiness
To shine maybe one more day
My soul bares all of innocence, as the chains of steel
Cover all to protect, from a love that came
Now torn away
The moment my tears, my cry began to bleed
Rushing blood through my eyes
The sight of light has gone from my reach
Left with shadows I can see
The steel's of chains is now complete
Behind my heart I left the key
Until the day I wish to feel again
The day I can forgive again
Then all you have to do is turn the key
