We fell from the sky in dreams that died, we were pulled into the storm that broke us into desert. The only life we saw, was when we reached the wilderness by dusk, when the the fear of the unknown took us away. Carving our failures into stone, we never felt like we were ever enough. A million lies that tried to sweep us away, how many trials, and failures can we take?
Runaways running in the night, but the night was able to take you far away from home. You ran away for freedom but only locked yourself in a cage, built on lies set to take away years, filling the cracks with time spent in vain. Sometimes we had the key from the start, but you ran away from home far away from your heart. Continue reading “The Heart’s Crossing”
Wanderlust away down a tunnel we walk through as we’re lying awake, giving light to a path we never had. Imagining a future you’re too afraid to create, so we let dreams be dreams at night, so we let the day be ruled by a different life. Black and white, we could never find vivid color, oh we could only wonder.
The fears that hid the truth, all it took was a little anxiety to dig a hole deep enough to put your periphery underneath. All it took was a few lies to tell you what you couldn’t be, a few lies that gave you a false identity. All it took was just one night, one treacherous mistake for you to turn off your light. How did these small thorns grow so much to surround you in pain, how did your path leave you here?

Drifting away, as the ice you sit on breaks away. The currents shifting, the wind sets you a sail as you say goodbye to this place you called home. Deep, and far away, further away into the unknown. This steady north fades, the night is here, the stars are in place, but I still can’t piece them together. Why does every constellation go far above my imagination, why can’t this puzzle be solved?
Drifting into the storm, bound to fall under, only a miracle can keep me afloat unless I shift directions. I can go on ahead with the odds stacked against me, or I could just turn around and leave, only a light could provide a path to steer, only something supernatural could still the waters to prevent my demise.

Lying in my bed I reminisce under the stars at night, flashbacks from the happiness of memories I cling onto so tight. Once upon another dream that didn’t come true. Picturing what I want, things I was too afraid to say. A world I made around me that was never close to my reality. Only a dreamer at night, paying too much attention to what I saw in the light of day. Distant prayers that seemed like wishing upon a star, my faith oh afar.
Scared like walking on thin ice, like caught into troubled waters. Seeming so alive during the day, yet it takes the night for me to think of what my world could be. If my dreams were more than just mere thoughts on my mind, but something my heart could finally traverse through. Continue reading “A Dream held Close”
A little time here and there, when the winter felt stronger, when this season only seemed to be longer, and longer. Freedom seemed ten million miles away, unattainable on this lonely road. How far must one cross over the ocean set between happiness, and despair?
She’s on edge, giving herself scars to search for healing. Through crying, and cutting, she sleeps longer in the day, she stays restless during the night. Wondering if she’ll ever feel loved.
He’s far off, turning to a drink for a temporary escape. He’s in the city, yet his dreams are alone in the wilderness. Struggling to love in this life, fighting for a hope burying himself like dirt. Continue reading “Set the Light”
Gone away, to a far off place.
Out in the desert, staring into space.
There I was at the edge of sorrow,
Looking for a map, without a compass,
There it was I looked upon the sky,
To see a night of stars,
Searching for a North Star,
Realizing how far away home was,
My heart so cold,
Love wasn’t here,
The night was so young,
the winter was so long. Continue reading “Along the Journey”
Remember how everything seemed so perfect? The life built like a sweet dream, how everything seemed right. A beautiful collection of precious memories we took so long to cherish. Staring into space, wondering why life wandered into this direction.
Falling down a pit, burying the ladder to climb back up, somethings you just assumed weren’t meant to be. You were afraid of what might be in the light, so you chose to dive deeper into the darkness of what you couldn’t see. You defined with what the world had to offer, the only light you saw shining was a fire burning what was home.
