The noises
BOOM
God, my head
Id rather be anywhere instead.

Oh, the thoughts that I think
Oh, the drinks I might drink
Oh, the blinks that I might blink
Oh, what I wouldnt give for just one more drink! 

Here they come again
The noises
BOOM
My Head!
Id rather be anywhere instead.

What is it about a rose that affects me so? Is it the redness that draws me?
Is it the thorniness that strengthens me? Or, is it because the fragrance is intoxicating? 

These things make a rose what they are
These aspects can also be found in you
It is the redness of you that draws me
It is your boldness that blinds me
It is your thorniness that strengthens me And it is the fragrance of you that is intoxicating 

You are the rose

Damn the phone, why wont it ring
With the something more than the sound it brings? With the something more that is you?
Why do my eyes feel so blue?

If you would call
I might fall
I might call
I might crawl
Into a hole if you dont call

The hole is black with its blackness
The hole is deep with its depth
With you comes the light
If I had one moment of you I might . . . 

If you would only call
I just might fall
I just might call
I just might crawl
Into that hole if you dont call!

If I could say that I love you it would be too easy To fall and fall and fall so desperately 

If I could say that I hate you it would be too easy To run and run and run so quickly

If I could say what it is that I wanted I wouldnt be In this type of quandary

Please help me
For you see
If I could
I could
and would




Ana

Hmm. . .Let me muse for a while
Upon the beauty that is your smile
Upon the grace that is your gate
Upon the wonder that is your fate

It seems to me there is no girl
More precious than my pearl
More wonderful, more magical
More mercurial, more special

There are no words for you
That can truly experience what you do
How you look, How you feel

. . .how mad you make me
. . .how glad you make me
. . .how sad you make me
. . .how proud you make me

Girl, what a girl you are!






Angel

Angel
My sweet angel
Brought from Heaven by fate
Casting my old life away in her wake
Staying up all night and keeping me awake 

Is this my fate?

Angel
My sweet angel
Jumping up and down
Making faces like a clown
Doing bad things to make me frown

Is this my fate?

Angel
My sweet angel
Walking with such grace
With an angelic look upon her face
Shaming everyone in the place

This is your fate


Inner Strength

Be Strong
Even in the face of wrong
Be strong
Even if you do not think you can
Be Strong
Even if no one else believes
Be Strong
Even if you hope ceases
Be Strong
Be Strong
Be STRONG

Be it always that your eyes are. . .
Be it always that your lips are. . .
Be it always that your arms are. . .
Be it always that your arms are. . .

Be it always that your love is. . .
Be it always that your faith is. . .
Be it always that your strength is. . .
Be it always that your mind is. . .

If I could find the words to finish the phrase It would still not be you


Searching

As I sit I wonder why
Why oh why cant I cry

You are not around
You are not around
You are simply not here

These feelings, how they call
Cut through me, soul and all

Where are you?
Where are you?
Where have you been?



Completed

Im finished
Im done
Now the moment has come
The moment where the end of it is.
Im not depressed
Im not sad
Just done.
