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


With Each Day

Though she has wounds that may never heal
Deep within she continues to feel
Time moves on and the days pass by
And with each there’s less tears to cry
Little by little, her hope renewed
But deep within it remains subdued
Waiting so patient for the day
That all her doubts will go away


Forsaken

Free her now from this prison within
Release her from the pain that has been
Holding her soul and crushing her heart
Giving her hope to tear it apart
Let her find the solace she needs
That shred of hope for which she pleads
Though she’s broken and her view left jaded
There’s a light within that’s not yet faded
Give her a chance to rekindle the fire
So that upon those flames she can fly higher
As they consume the past and the pain
And within their heat melt every chain
Never again will she be taken
To a place where she is forsaken


Safe Within

The morning light filters in
So softly upon her skin
A smile growing upon her face
For fading dreams she tries to chase
She opens her eyes, they disappear
But deep inside she still holds them near
For all the comfort that they bring
Against this world’s most vicious sting
Keeping her mind safe and whole
Despite this life’s daily toll


Seeking To Be Free

She longs to be wanted
And no longer haunted
By loneliness and fear
That are always so near
To be free of these chains
Their heaviness that drains
Walk away from the dark
That weighs down her dear heart


Taking Your Hand

I hate to let you see me weak
Those times that my world feels so bleak
When I fall to a place I hate to be
Lost in my mind as I fall to my knee
But this private hell grows smaller each day
When by my side you insist you will stay
And as I look up I see your hand
As it reaches out to help me stand


Within The Flames

The flames consume all in its way
Making the night as bright as day
But the fire is nothing to fear
Though you feel the heat as it draws near
Watch as it dances in the sky
Finding such freedom there up high
Moving and swaying without a care
Breathing and sighing in the night air
Don’t live your life hiding in ice
These flames of love may not come twice
So in your heart let the fire burn
And in your soul let freedom return


Morning Light

Waking slowly to the morning light
And greeted by such a pleasant sight
As you lay sleeping so peacefully
Finding your arms wrapped tight around me
Thinking this could be heaven on earth
And you may never know what it’s worth
To have you at last by my side
Never again have a need to hide


Poison or Remedy?

She doesn’t know what the future may bring
Is it poison or love in that sharp sting?
Her strength seems gone and yet it remains
As the toxin courses through her veins
Heart beating faster every day
Not even slowing as she lay
Her heavy head down upon his chest
And closing her eyes for a brief rest
Her heart finally quiets with his touch
To that peace he brings she’ll forever clutch


With Mended Wings

Her tears flowing gently down
But on her face there’s no frown
That glistening trail leads to a smile
As she sees her pain has been worthwhile
For all the trials and all the tests
Have brought her here where true love crests
And in its glow she can finally bloom
For her heart’s broken wings now have room
To finally heal and open wide
To the ground she’s no longer tied
Watch her soar now, wild and free
Higher than the tallest tree
