Mirage



A hundred thousand summer days
A million summer nights
A hundred million loving ways
A billion shining lights
 
The ghost of summer never fades
Forever in my heart
The minutes soon become decades
Before they even start
 
All this from a glimpse of you
Walking down the street
The summer heat
Like a mirage
You're just a mirage to me
You were never, ever there
You're just, just a mirage

Completely Sane

They whisper secrets in my dreams
Then flee as daylight breaks

They call the shots
And join the dots

That I'm sure I've joined before
But as I rise
And rub my eyes

I long to sleep some more
So they can tell me once again
That I'm completely sane

Left Unsaid

How could I know just what it meant?
My dreams! My dreams! Were never what they seemed.
How could you steal what I had lent?
My themes! My themes! Were whispers in my head.
How could I stop my quick descent?
My seams! My seams! Were torn and unredeemed.
How could I take such deep torment?
My screams! My screams! Were better left unsaid.

And me

Just a moment
If you please
Let's chew the fat
Let's shoot the breeze
Let's take a walk

Down memory lane
I'm sure we've both
So much to say

So stop a while
Pull up a pew
Even though
We've things to do
We'll never have
This day again
So lend an ear
To this old friend
To pass the time
As we're meant to do
With fellowship
Just me and you
For that's what matters
That's the key
That's the value
Of you and me.

Is Newer

In a heart beat
In a whisper
Life moves on
When we would linger

In a whisper
In a season
Endless change
Forgotten reasons

In a season
In a hurry
Just don't stop
Another worry

In a hurry
In a moment
Turned to look
One more postponement

In a moment
In a Christmas
Raise a glass
Don't blink, you'll miss this

In a Christmas
In an absence
Just once more
This fragment passes

In an absence
In the present
Mending hearts
Seeking contentment

In the present
In the future
Don't look back
Ahead is newer

You, Too

Don't talk
For fear you may be heard
And then you wouldn't be able to say
No one ever listened to you.

Don't ask
For fear you may understand
And then you wouldn't be able to cry
Over all the misfortune you went through.

Don't care
For fear you may lose your enemy
And then you wouldn't able to re-direct the blame
When perhaps some of that blame belongs to you, too.

Was Real

Your light comes from the darkness
You cast a ghostly glow
Your smile reveals
A heart so cold

Tainting all you thought was real

Let Them In



She drank to drown her demons
But the bastards learned to swim
With tooth and claw
They climbed the wall
And screamed about her sin
Why did she ever let them in?
