    YOU WERE

    You were tired and quiet
    You were shy and lonely
    You were tearful and pained
    You were,...

    Well, you were a mess.

    I was unhelpful and deaf
    I was incapable and lazy
    I was ignorant and blunt
    I was,..

    Well, I wasn't there when you needed someone

    But I am here now
    Like the Sun when the flowers are ready to bloom once more during the Spring,
    I will be there everyday
    Regardless of the weather or the clouds
    Regardless of people and trivial matters
    I will be there,
    And if you are wondering "where:"
    I'll be here, right in the centre of the elementary school playground where we'd chase each other for the top secret information regarding our middle names
    And when you get there
    You don't have to say anything
    I got you


    You were,...

    distant and unattached

    You,...

    scared me

    But I'm not shirking you away this time, I'll be there, and I'll say what I've always wanted to:

    "I love you"

    Bottled

    You sent me your message in a bottle

    It's all too typical for your meaning to be guarded
    Or your heart to be hidden within your ribs with a thousands tiny soldiers waiting for an intruder
    And when there is one, they'll scatter
    Just to release a dragon upon the poor soul that has wandered upon the wrong heart

    But when your tongue moves in time
    And you lay your words
    Like a child's hand upon the stove the second time 'round
    What comes out isn't what sits cozy and idle in your skull
    The bottle of your message is made of the toughest glass
    And the cork is quite stuck, I'd have better luck with a pickle jar

    I wish you wouldn't be so afraid
    I wish when you saw me you wouldn't see a troll with sharp teeth and claws made for ruin
    I wish you'd tell me what you were thinking without thinking I would think something horrible

    Most of all I wish I could hold you
    Just hold you and not speak
    Because who the hell needed words anyway
    We'll read each other's eyes and smiles and decipher every twitch in our faces and just cry and laugh and scream and smile
    And feel,
    Just feel
    No need for thoughts,
    Just each other

    And maybe after a little while you'll help me uncork the bottle

    This is sort of a part two electric boogaloo to a piece I wrote a year or two ago and if you find it in my posts, congrats :)

    You've Opened the Curtain

    After you've seen
    The bird is you, not me
    I'll still believe
    That what you said wasn't true
    And what it meant to you
    Was quite a bit more than what it meant to me

    It was never me you needed to convince
    "You're nothing more than a pretty image, or something to entertain the children with,
    You're nothing more than a parrot behind that bloodstained curtain"
    But did you say it for you or I?

    Mother Night, wrap your dark arms around me. Protect me. Lord of Chaos, guide me. Father Death, embrace me. I am the half man who dwells in both worlds. I walk in shadow and light and am cursed by both.

    I've always felt so far away, like nothing was ever truly real, like I was never truly real. I guess it's like singing in the shower, people outside hear you singing, but they can't pick out the words.

    It hurts to live today, and then she said "don't you wish you were dead like me?"

    Artist
    Being an artist makes me a genius with a handful of graphite
    And a pocket purse of pencils
    I got a backpack full of erasers 'cause I make a damn lot of mistakes
    My shading stick turned into a blunt because I lost my muse

    And as an artist, I understand some people don't
    But I can vibe with those who do
    And we'll pass the paint and have a huff
    Because we're all good buds and we're up for some fun

    But as an artist I love all I create
    My very first watercolour,
    My not very good portrait,
    The dents in my erasers,
    The garden and mango tree out back,
    The love I'll always have for her

    And as an artist,
    I am the Atlas to what I love,
    The Jove to all I synthesize,
    The caretaker of broken bits and pieces,
    And the richest of them all if we, all of us who understand, are together

    She'll follow me
    Down every street,
    No matter what my crime

    Where the world around them was full of seperation, ravaged by the winds of change, they alone were steady in their unity
    Steady but not stuck
