I need it to rain

I need to hide
to drown my sorrow
to not feel obligated to stay a secret
the darkness to blanket my self inflicted pain
the thunder to stifle my screams
the lightening to set me on fire
I need it to rain...

I need to be revitalized and invigorated
to feel serene and tranquil
to be calm and collected
the darkness to bring me peace
the thunder to direct my mind
the lightening to guide my heart
I need it to rain...

I need to escape
to feel the ground at my feet
to feel the wind in my hair
the darkness to blind my captor
the thunder to clap in approval
the lightening to sever my shackles 
I need it to rain...

I need to grow
to heighten my potential
to cultivate and thrive
the darkness to shelter my fraility
the thunder to ward off any imminent danger
the lightening to strike as my weapon
I need it to rain...

I need to be laid to rest
for someone to cry for me
for someone to long for me
the darkness to resemble my abscence
the thunder to echo my voice through your ears
the lightening to flash visions of me before your eyes
I need it to rain...

An Artist

Him and I are very different...
he sees a strange painting
I see beauty and mystery
he sees a stupid ballet
I see technique, emotion, passion
he sees a tree or the ocean
I see wonder and grace
he sees the sky or feels the wind
I see miracles and endless possibilities
he sees a homeless man
I see history and fear 
he sees money and power
I see evil and greed
he sees a tear and weakness
I see pain and a breaking point
he sees diffrences
I see individuality and commonality as a human race
he sees insanity
I see creativity and curiousity
he sees life
I see a journey and a struggle
he sees a trophy wife... a convenience
I see me...my understanding, my mind, my heart
In me I see the painting and the ballet
I am part of the tree, the ocean, and the sky
I too am like the homeless man who is weak and tired
I cry and I am probably slighty insane
but I am different... I don't need money or power
I am the artist... I just need the special vision to be able to paint the story of my life

DOES SHE KNOW

DOES SHE KNOW YOUR FAVORITE COLOR
OR WHEN YOU GREW UP WHAT YOU WANTED TO BE
DOES SHE KNOW HOW YOU LIKE TO SMELL
OR THE PLACES YOU WANT TO SEE
DOES SHE KNOW WHAT YOUD RATHER DO
WHEN YOU COME HOME ACHING AND SORE
DOES SHE KNOW YOUR STANCE ON LIFE
HOW YOU HATE CONFLICT AND WAR
DOES SHE KNOW WHAT YOU LIKE TO WATCH OR READ
OR DOES SHE KNOW YOUR FAVORITE FOOD
DOES SHE KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOU HAPPY
WHEN YOUR SICK OR IN A BAD MOOD
DOES SHE KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF
YOUR INSECURITIES AND FEARS
HAS SHE SEEN THE SCARS
HAS SHE WIPED YOUR TEARS
DOES SHE KNOW YOU ARE EVERYTHING I BELIEVE IN
ALL THE BEAUTY AND COMPASSION IN THE WORLD I SEE
DOES SHE KNOW WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR 
WHEN YOU SAY YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY



DOES SHE KNOW THAT YOUR KISSES USED TO BE MINE
DOES SHE KNOW THOSE I LOVE YOUS BELONGED TO ME
DOES SHE KNOW THE SOLACE THAT I BROUGHT YOU
WHEN I GENTLY STROKED YOUR HAIR WHILE YOU WERE ASLEEP
DOES SHE KNOW YOU WOULD HOLD MY HAND IN BED
OR THE PASSION BEHIND YOUR EYES
DOES SHE KNOW THE DEPTH YOU HAVE
ALL THE EMOTIONS YOU CHOOSE TO HIDE
DOES SHE KNOW THE THINGS THAT TURN YOU ON
LIKE WHISPERING IN YOUR EAR
TRACING THE OUTLINE OF YOUR JAW WITH MY LIPS
OR GAZING INTO YOUR EYES IGNORING YOUR FEELINGS OF 
INADEQUACY AND FEAR



DOES SHE KNOW THAT MY HANDS SHAKE
AND THAT I TOO HAVE SCARS 
DOES SHE KNOW MY BODYS WEAK
THAT I AM PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY STARVED
DOES SHE KNOW MY KNEES TREMBLE
OR THAT MY HEART BREAKS
WHENEVER I HEAR YOUR NAME
OR EVERYTIME I SEE YOUR FACE
DOES SHE KNOW I'D DO IT ALL AGAIN
EVEN IF THE OUTCOME REMAINED THE SAME 
EVEN IF I KNEW THE WHOLE TIME
AGAIN I'D PLAY THIS GAME
KNOWING I WOULD LOSE
I WOULD RELIVE THE AGONY OF DEFEAT
BECAUSE IN THAT TIME YOU LOVED ME
I'D NEVER FELT MORE ALIVE, I'D NEVER FELT MORE FREE

The truth in time

Time is the most precious possession the universe holds.
It is powerful beyond all measure.
It is loyal but also very unforgiving.

Time will test our strength and will power.
It will expose our weakness.
Time will challenge our thoughts and emotions.
It will be relentless in its endeavor to prove love unstable and lacking.
Time will push boundaries.
It will surpass limitations and barriers. 
Time will change you...
Time will possibly break you...
Time may even heal you...

Time is not to be undervalued or assessed.
Time can not be exacted, it is a gift, an allowance.
We are given time so that we may discover who we were, who we are, and who we long to be...
We are given time to uncover the endless possibilities that lie before us.
We are given time to gain enlightenment, to learn, and to teach.
We are given time to be free, to be liberated, to be alive!!!

But, in time, you will always find a profound truth...

Time is borrowed, only a certain amount allotted.
It is owed all of your energy and spirit. 
You have to explode every day.
Only slow down for those magical moments.
To absorb all the character needed to become a philanthropic warrior.
A guardian and a leader to those who do not understand the true concept of time.

A Walk Among the Tombstones

*Walking among the tombstones
*Conversing with the dead
*Alone, crying at a grave
*A woman on her knees, bowed was her head

*Her hair was dark
*Her eyes were too
*I couldn't help the strange feeling
*That this was a woman I knew

*As I approached
*I quaked with fear
*And in the blink of an eye
*The mysterious woman disappeared

*Curiosity got the best of me
*I threw caution to the wind
* What I saw at that stone
*I could not comprehend

*My breathing became erratic
*Tears fell from my eyes
*My heart sank
*As I read those lines

*Here lies Valerie
*Mother, daughter, sister, and wife
*Such a pity and a shame
*She took her own life

*Her mind and spirit broken
*Her heart was shattered
*So tired of being worthless
*To him not one moment together mattered

*Couldn't close her eyes
*Her nightmares carried her fears
* Suffocated by lies
*Drowned in her tears

*She could still feel his heart beat
* and hear his breath
* she still felt her hand on his face
* and his head collapsed on her chest

*She gave her last breath
*Praying and begging for one last kiss
*And to hear him say he loved her
* to feel the fire and emotions she had missed

*A love she once knew
*So real and rare
*So strong yet so frail
*Forever they were to share

*his promises were broken
*he chose a different life
* living for everyone else, without her
* he walked away and let her go and didn't even cry when she died

*My hands began to tremble
* What I began to realize, I just couldn't believe
*I had lost her so very long  ago
*The woman who had vanished was the me I used to be...

DEAFENING SILENCE

EVERY DAY I CRY
EVERY NIGHT I PRAY
FOR THE STRENGTH  I NEED
TO SURVIVE ANOTHER DAY
MY DREAMS ARE HAUNTED 
BY MY MEMORIES OF YOU
EVEN IF I COULD 
THESE MEMORIES I'D NEVER UNDO
IN MY DREAMS 
I BEG AND I PLEAD
LEFT THERE CRIPPLED 
DOWN ON MY KNEES
WITH A VACANT EXPRESSION
IN MY EYES YOU STARE
INTO MY SOUL
MY NOW ABYSS FULL OF DISPAIR
I'VE WONDERED AND SEARCHED AND
PONDERED THE REASONS
CONFIDED IN STRANGERS
EVEN FOUND RELIGION WHILE FACING MY DEMONS
I'VE RESORTED TO INSOMNIA
DAY AFTER DAY FEELING NUMB
TO THE POWER OF MY ADDICTION
I WILLINGLY SUCCUMB
JUST TO HEAR YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
I'D ENDURE TORTURE AND PAIN
FOR THE RUSH OF FEELING YOUR EMBRACE
IS LIKE HEROIN IN MY VEINS
THAT'S ALL I CRAVE
THOSE SWEET WORDS LAID UPON MY EARS
BUT YOUR DEFEANENING SILENCE
BRINGS ME TO TEARS
LIKE SILENT THUNDER
RIPPING ME APART
WITH YOUR UNSPOKEN WORDS
YOU'VE SHATTERED MY HEART

TO FILL THE VOID

I GO THROUGH THE DAY ALWAYS FEELING LIKE SOMETHING IS MISSING
A VOID THAT NEEDS TO BE FILLED
I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING OF SUBSTANCE
I GET TATTOOS AND PIERCINGS
I CHANGE MY HAIR OR MY CLOTHES
EVERYTHING ABOUT ME SCREAMS THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG
BUT NO ONE IS THERE TO CONSOLE ME
DO THEY NOT CARE, DO THEY NOT WISH TO BE INDULGED IN MY HEARTBREAK
OR HAVE I JUST BECOME SO CONVINCING IN MY FAKE SMILE
MY FACADE THAT RARELY CRUMBLES
MY GENUINE INTERIOR ONLY REVEALING ITSELF AS I CRY IN THE SHOWER
WATER CRASHING ON MY FACE
OR AS I TOSS AND TURN WHILE I SLEEP...WHENEVER I CAN SLEEP
DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES FILLING MY UNCONSCIOUS
WHEN I WAKE, FEELING SO SAD USELESS
MY BODY FEELING HEAVY...DRAINED...HALF HEARTED

A Place Unknown

I maybe young
a little foolish and naive
but I have come to understand myself
even if no one else does
I may not have all the answers
or even all the right questions
if I know nothing else
I know this
my love for you comes from somewhere unknown
someplace I believe most people never find
or even know exists
it's an abstract wilderness
being overrun by emotions 
our moral compass
it houses our deepest fears and insecurities
but also our courage, character,honesty, beauty
it is the dwelling wherein our purest love lies
this is where we find our greatest potential and power
the strength and ambition to progress
...to persevere...to survive
I credit this unknown place
for my faith and credence
in the revelations of life
its complexities
as well as its simplicities
I praise this unknown place
for bestowing upon me the dexterity needed
to possess a fire and an exuberant vitality
to be able to love you beyond words
once I fail to recognize this profound discovery
and stop revelling in its truth
I shall cease to exist

STRICKEN

Before you i was content
Unhappy but a smile was easier to fake
You infiltrated my mind
Seduced my body
Engulfed my heart
Freed my soul

After you I’m drowning
The hands i once held
Refuse to reach for me
The arms that once secured me
Refuse to embrace me
The lips that used to whisper i love you
Will no longer breathe life into my body

I’m alone in a somber darkness
Forced to face my demons 
Lost and broken
I am completely and utterly stricken

A JURY OF YOUR PEERS

HI IM SOPHIE
THE ONE YOU ALWAYS LAUGH AT
WHY DO YOU HATE ME
CAN YOU EVEN ANSWER THAT
YOU'D HATE ME IF I WERE GAY
YOU'D HATE ME IF STRAIGHT
YOU'D HATE IT IF I HAD A GIRLFRIEND
OR IF THE QUARTERBACK ASKED ME ON A DATE
YOU'D MOCK ME IF I WERE POOR
EVEN MORE IF I WERE RICH
I'D EITHER BE AN INDIGENT 
OR A STUCK UP *****
MY BEAUTY WOULD INTIMIDATE YOU
MY FLAWS YOU WOULD FLAUNT
ONCE YOUR MEAN WORDS ARE SPOKEN
THEY DON'T DIE THEY HAUNT
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU SAID TO ME
THE MOMENTS THAT MADE ME CRY
THE SAME WAY YOU DID
WHEN YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN BY THAT GUY
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU DID TO ME
THAT LEFT BRUISES AND MADE ME BLEED
THE SAME WAY YOU DID 
WHEN YOU FELL FROM THE PYRAMID WHILE CHEERING FOR THE TEAM
ALL THE TIMES YOU EMBARRASSED ME
MADE ME HANG MY HEAD IN SHAME 
IF THEY DONT SAVE ME IN TIME
ARE YOU THE ONE TO BLAME
YOU SEE WE'RE NO DIFFERENT
YOU AND ME
EXCEPT I WAS PERSUCUTED BY A JURY OF MY PEERS
AND YOURS SET YOU FREE
