Time’s magic act


There’s a potion of intermingled hopes and fears.

Time is a magic act, on its own.

It waves its cape and beckons for cheers,

leaving all the aces in sleeves unknown…

Faith is a coat rarely embraced and worn.

Because life here is kind to the weak,

and a suit that is faded and torn,

has no place at the table of Earth’s elite.

Hope is dwindling on fate’s candlestick.

The future always seems eminent.

So precious and powerful, with such a thin wick,

few step into the storm to shield the wind…

…but we must keep hope lit…

For ages and generations of grown wise and passed on,

the world to a new age and generation of fools whom all believe,

they are the greatest, the wisest, and they shall make new laws,

that make this place better than those before could have conceived.

And open minds still need a filter,

and open hearts still need guards,

open dreams, still need solid timber

for we all still live under the stars.

Be cautious, be prudent, be patient, be wise.

Trust those before, for the’ve glimpsed more in their short times.

Be humble, be honest, be rational, be kind.

Be loving, be faithful, be hopeful, be alive.

The magic act has begun

perhaps, it is already halfway through.

You don’t have to stay and watch the show…

you’re allowed to get up, and explore the room.

The potion has already been mixed in your wine,

and you shall both suffer and rejoice with time.

And love is bitter, love is sacrifice, but love is divine.

And it’s the only thing that lasts longer than life.

clouds and stubborn things


i lost myself in a thick white cloud

on a mountain, watching the city far down,

where I discovered that I am too proud

when I refused to call for help until now…

 

oh silly girl, life is much too brief

to waste time obstinately doing everything 

my own way to save myself from directions,

sometimes a hint, is worth the entire read…

fabric of fate


it is not for the money
& nor for the fame…
it is not for the pride,
nor for the privilege i play…

it is only for your heart
that I desire to win…
all the other rewards,
i hereby, forfeit…

So to the divine weaver of fate,
please, spend my fine twine
only on the riches of love & faith…
and all other wealth, i hereby decline

trading all my luck for him…
and the fruits of peace that go along with
the career, the respect, the fortune, the sway…
i’d give it all in an instant… just to love like we did…

is it really a small world?


You hear it’s a small small world…
in movies that seem to mean nothing…
then you hear it’s a big world full of potential
and it’s rather confusing to me….

If it’s so small, then why can’t i capture it?
if it’s so small, why can’t I travel it through?
but if it’s so large, then why does everyone i meet
all seem to point me back to you?

oh, i guess it’s a mystery world…
full of too many people, never the same,
yet just few enough that everyone matters some,
but nobody can ever know everyone’s name…

I think I like small towns
because they make sense, you know who you meet
everyone knows who is who
& you know not to trust cheating Tim, before he cheats…

but the world, you can never learn it all
never understand it, or bottle it all up in a snow-globe…
i wanted to wait until I’d seen everything
but this might just be one long long road……

ex-innoncents


a kiss don’t mean nothing to some…
but for me it used to mean ‘i like only you’
i guess it’s not a lie for one of the first kind…
but to my little soul, it stung like salt on a wound…

i will never again believe a kiss is more than i know,
i guess i turned the tables on the world…
the innocent preying on the guilty players…
now i’m just a cold hearted cynical girl….

but i guess that’s how all the guilty players are…
ex-innocents getting their revenge on the system…
a vicious cycle supposedly centered on finding love,
maybe apathy is its own kind of wisdom…

Quest to purge my heart


The freedom is overwhelming
when you realize you can do what’s right…
Lift the guilt off your shoulders
as you forgive & apologize…

——

going back through old grudges,
writing them on little notes,
and then one by one i light them on fire
cleansing my heart as i let it go…

looking up the old names
of folks that i wronged long ago…
and sending them words of regret and sorry
that we both know i truly owe…

and then one by one with those now
who i have shown a double standard to…
i release them from the strings i held
show them my sin asked to be excused…


humiliated and humbled,
But I’m sick of guilty lies and truths…
so i am on a quest to purge my soul
and renew that peace i once knew

heart in the hands of another


If you put your heart in the hands of another,
heart break is all that you can expect in return…
So i shall hold my heart in the freezer of time,
and deny you the warmth for which you yearn…

but then as months move forward i begin to get cold,
and realize that only in risking it’s loss, can love be received…
So i cautiously broke my heart, and gave you one piece at a time…
then i looked at my hands and saw all the blood i’d released…

So whole hearted or cold hearted, i shall no longer break
my own being for the sake of preserving my cautious dignity…
And what is love preserved frozen until I die alone?..
but some sad shadow of all that very well still could be?

So i’m thawing out this cold hearted bitch i’ve become…
and this time when i trust my heart in the hands of another,
I shall judge ahead how worthy & strong are those hands
because to me he must be more than just another… he must be my lover…
