Broken Cage

lightning at sea - by Bill Collison flickr

Dark clouds rolling across the sky
Reflecting all that’s in her eye
Lightning that strikes is all her rage
That she keeps locked within a cage
But that cage is about to break
Leaving destruction in its wake
And all of her rage will flow free
But only sorrow will you see


Unanswered

Seeking answers and finding none
Still the questions are never done
Always pressing upon her mind
Always leaving her feeling blind
Eyes are open but without sight
Ever looking to find the light
But darkness prevails day to day
So in it’s embrace she will lay


One Last Dance

So many times she’s been knocked down
Left all alone there on the ground
Cold and trembling upon the floor
Is this all that Fate has in store?
She longs to hope, too scared to try
But then that look within his eye
Begs her to take just one more chance
Fall in his arms, give him this dance


Sweet Visions

Spoken softly into the night
Though in the dark, he speaks of light
Promises of brighter days
Are only words in the haze
Of sleep and wake within her mind
Stirring dreams of a tender kind
Replacing nightmares that used to haunt
With sweeter visions that seem to taunt
In a love so true she just can’t conceive
But he won’t give up making her believe


Fear

Give her a reason to forget the past
And make her believe that something can last
Tell her why she should let go of the fear
And let her know that she’d cried her last tear

She suffers in memories of the pain
Knowing only the tears that fall like rain
Still feeling each blow that took her belief
And left her lying shattered in the grief

She tries to get up but she’s pulled back in
Crushing her hope that she can ever win
So give her reason to believe this time
That she’ll be safe when from this hole she climbs


From The Ashes

Through the chaos of her life
All the struggles and the strife
She’s risen up from the ash
Though pale and weak from the crash
The flames still licking at her feet
Despite her fear there’s no retreat
She must go on, she can’t sit still
Lest the fire consume her will
Strength is hers, she must hold it tight
So it may bring her to the light


No Surrender

He can feel the ice that runs in her veins
But he holds the key to unlock her chains
To ignite the fire that burns so cold
And see all her secrets as they unfold
She fights against it with all of her might
But within she knows it’s a losing fight
Though this may be one she’d rather not win
She can’t surrender and she can’t give in
