The Ballads of a Stranded Soul

"The teller and the tale are very different, never forget that"

Flickering Flames! 

“And every time I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And every time I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream”

.

A garden of roses
The quaint colors of the skies and the rain
Every subtlety of nature
Seems more apparent than never before
Fires more raging
Even with the winds whistling over them
Undying unrelenting
Just as my will to witness your smile
Over and over again
A hope disguised in a speck of dust
Floating in the path
Of your glimmering light, rapt with frenzy
Escaping reality
As excuses run thin, as the truth unfolds,
As my cowardice flickers
Just as the flames that lighten your face
I can sense the apprehension
But I would burn the bridge between us
And let the distance stay
So the embers burn bright to keep the flames alit
As the gaze to your smile remains.

Salvation to my world!

“You are the avalanche
One world away
My make believing
While I’m wide awake”

.

I wake up, wake up to smell of roses
In a desert I pray the wind doesn’t change
It seems harder than before
To make words rhyme to my shame
Is it because the memory of your smile
keeps playing over and over again
The moment of unparalleled joy, that gratuitous smile
All inescapable in this screaming field of dreams tonight
I wish I could spend every minute of every day to tell you
That every moment passed since then was just a picture
Perfect with colors I haven’t witnessed before
Your smile just makes me wonder
Why do we trivialize our existence
When we have much at stake
Why fight for terror and our jaded gods
When we can fight for ways to make you keep that smile
For eternity I will be the ballad who would sing to this world
The rumors I once sought for, as a virtue stands before me
The skies cry as they let an angel fall amongst us
So let me dream of a gentle kiss
As I gently sieve your hair with my hand
Holding close to me, the salvation to my world.

Everything Fades Away!

“For your love I’m sorry
For your pain, don’t worry
Everything fades away”

.

As you remember the silly thoughts
You’d be writing about
You let your feet run cold
Till they run you down
Run you weary and tired tonight,
till time goes back from whence it began
A second chance, where you’re willing to see
The thoughtless memories
As everything bleeds
The uncertainty in you
As a shadow leaves
A familiar shape of light
flickers into a figurine
Hope wanders into the woods unknown
Would you still follow it tonight
Believing maybe tomorrow is a better day
Or would you just let your tears run down,
Let the shadow disappear,
Silhouettes forgotten
would you just let the darkness fill the night.

Illusions and Dreams

“If I speak ill please, humour me
Won’t rant on endlessly
Just thought I’d try to make you see
My Illusions and Dreams”

.

Exchanging glances or so it would seem
Drifiting and wandering aimlessly
Blind to everyone surrounding me
In my world of make believe
Their voices sounding like the echoing keys
To the songs that you would sing
You’d still be my dream to sleep tonight
With my discreet passions’ calling out
I’ve renounced the world that we live in
Days are just illusions without you in it
Dishonesty is all I’m facing lonely
So will you be by my side
In our never ending dream and fantasy.
