Drawing Near

Thunder rolling deep within
As the end is closing in
She knows what’s coming, she has no fear
Quietly waiting as time draws near
Bracing herself against the cold
Letting go of what she can’t hold
Watching it all slip slowly away
Wondering how things went so astray
Closing her eyes and breathing deep
All of her control she must keep

No Mercy

Show her no mercy, spare her no pain
Take the last of what has kept her sane
Take the light and the solace it gives
Leave her now in this darkness that lives
With its breath hot upon her neck
And eyes just a shimmering speck
She hears it’s steps moving so quick
Or is that noise just her mind’s trick
She no longer knows what’s real or not
Within this web of life that she’s caught


Waiting For Fate

With every breath that I take
My solitude I forsake
I ache for you while you’re away
To feel your touch, to know you’ll stay
Is all I need to make it through
Till once more I can be with you
Your words are my strength for this wait
And knowing that you are my fate


Held Steady

She breathes deeper every day
Clouds above no longer gray
The storm has passed and she still stands
She’s held steady now by his hands
They promise to catch her should she fall
In those hands she has no fear at all
She’ll take chances she swore never to take
With him by her side a new life they’ll make
In each other’s arms each night they’ll lay
And together they will greet each day


Waiting

She closes her eyes and breathes so deep
Holding these feelings she aches to keep
Feeling her heart beating quicker
As the haze of dreams grows thicker
This love in her heart will never fade
As memories so sweet are replayed
In her dreams, asleep or awake
Her smile grows, there’s no mistake
In his arms is where she’s meant to be
And so she waits for him patiently


The Walls

The walls close in, so hard to breathe
Fighting against the urge to seethe
So lonely here within these walls
Inside of them a darkness falls
No tender voice falls upon these ears
And no kind face to assuage these fears
The pain of this body continues on
It never seems to be completely gone
More and more my sanity slips
Light now hidden by an eclipse


The Life We Lost

Stepping out of my norm for a moment, this was written in dedication of a certain person going though a very difficult time.  I will not name names but I know that you will know who you are.  I feel the pain you are going through and I hope this helps and don’t ever forget to smile and breath and go slowly.

Morning mist on Lake Mapourika, New Zealand.

In a place I never expected to be
Everything I know so far away from me
Lost in these thoughts that haunt my mind
Feeling as if I have been blind
How did I miss all the signs you gave
Living my life as if in a cave
But now I see all that was hidden
The truth that I felt was forbidden
Still so much more for me to learn
Like for what it is that you yearn
And though I wish all our problems could be done
That once more we could be here breathing as one
The center of my life now must be
Those sweet faces that look up to me
