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

Dreaming

She closes her eyes and begins to see
All of those things she wishes could be
To be held so tight and held so dear
To know that love is always so near
To feel that kiss that reaches so deep
To know that her heart someone would keep
Safe and sound and free from all harm
Free to succumb to all his charm
But the dream will always disappear
And she’ll be left with nothing but fear


Missing

It never changes, everyone lies
The world will spin and everyone dies
But when we’re gone will we leave a mark
Or will our lives fade into the dark
Would anyone notice when I’m gone
Or would they forget me with the dawn
If I stepped back from all I know
Would they notice I didn’t show
Just a shadow upon this life
Finally bowing to all the strife


Illusions

Fire burning dim in her eyes
As she sees through all of the lies
The reality becoming clear
As she tries to grasp what she holds dear
But all the illusions turn to smoke
And with each breath she begins to choke
Until she can breathe no more
And falls slowly to the floor


Lifelike

She isn’t real
She needs to feel
She can’t be real
If she can’t heal

Soon she will fade
The price is paid
Her soul will fade
From mistakes made

She disappears
Into her fears
She disappears
Behind her tears


Hiding

Once again I disappear
Behind a mask, hide my fear
Let no one see what’s inside
The deepest truth’s, try to hide
Sadness I’ll hold deep within
Show no tears upon my skin
Wear no heart upon my sleeve
Though in my chest it will heave
There’s no weakness I will show
Where to hit they will not know
But can I keep this charade
How long till it starts to fade


Fading Flame

The flames are sinking low
No longer do they glow
So brightly against the sky
Or fiercely within her eye
As that fire becomes subdued
All that she is she must conclude
Has faded more than she thought
Now she finds herself distraught
No way to feed this fire
As it falls from the pyre
