Walls

I lay brick over brick,
Laboriously I build,
Walls so tall around me,
So no one around can see.

I paint myself invisible,
I hide myself away,
Behind those walls, so mighty,
So no one can touch me, even slightly.

I welcome the night,
It brings with it the darkness,
A blanket, if you will,
Under which I can lie, still.

It’s not my fears,
That make me look away,
It’s the pain of my misery,
It’s us, and our history.

It’s the walking away,
It’s the breaking of hearts,
It’s how you tore me down,
Turned every smile to a frown.

It’s these walls alone,
That can keep me safe,
Away from the eyes,
Away from a love that dies.

I build these walls,
Brick by each brick,
To keep myself hidden,
To save me from the anarchy within.

Forgive & Forget


I wrench my heart,
I expose my soul,
My being has become,
Black as coal.

You look at me,
You’re scared, yes?
You can’t look away,
You’re a bit of a mess.

I saw the truth,
That you ran away from,
I made it mine,
Stood in the eye of the storm.

You look at me,
Trying to find your friend,
But after the cards you played,
I’m afraid it’s our end.

I’ve wrenched my heart,
And now I’m cold,
So I find the will,
To throw out the old.

I twisted my soul,
And now I don’t care,
About you and your fears,
Your substance lies bare.

Walk away now,
While you have a chance
A few lessons wait for you,
Karma does its wicked dance.

I promise you this,
Through all the pain and the sweat,
I’ll walk away smiling,
I will forgive & I will forget.

 

Heaven’s Gates

Everything has changed,
Radically different lives,
Radically different people,
As if I look upon the world from a steeple.

Heart’s change their beat,
Eyes change their color,
With every step I change the course,
Of my journey, with brute force.

Standing in the distance is our past,
Reminding us of times long gone,
When we wanted to run to our now,
And today we stand here wondering how.

How did the paths change,
Twist upon themselves,
And bring us here,
Leave us wondering if anyone is near.

But I see just you in my eyes,
A little brighter today,
A reflection of us alone,
Just so in my heart you fit.

Our lives melt together,
Like a kaleidoscopic mirror,
We see the world go by,
Like watching the clouds against the sky.

Archaic change constantly haunts,
We fall in step with life,
Holding hands we’ll walk to one side,
Weathering the storm, rain and the tide.

Like those stories we heard,
Of the happily ever afters,
We will live them with stubborn resolve,
Until fate’s stoic resistance dissolves.

Wait for me, and I shall follow,
Follow you into the love,
At the end of time that waits,
Welcomes us, at Heaven’ Gates.
