Unspoken Promise

You don’t have to tell me that you like me

You don’t have to tell me that you care

You don’t have to flatter me with kindness

The dryness of your words abandon me in despair

You don’t have to say another word

You don’t have to feed a man that’s whole

I’m not starving for your offerings of emptiness

All this talk has made this life just feel so cold

It goes round and round and it’s spinning like a record

Rotation of recycled sound I’ve heard so many times

But you never gave me love

You make it seem so hard to find

So I close my eyes and I inhale all these dreams that still my mind

And I’m settled with a piece of something I have yet to find

Will I know what it feels like to tangle up through time

Take me off the track from the records of the blind

And I keep spinning

Let me go

All this winning is aging my old soul

So let me go

Just let me go so I can fly away in peace from all the fizzy shallow noise

Let me go to a place where my spirit senses poise

Let me have a chance to feel I’ve made a better choice

Let my past disappear so I can hear your voice

But only if it’s true

And only if it’s real

And only if gives my heart a reason left to feel

 

Build

Climbing up to the crane

I had to leave my cane

Hold the pleasure

Take the pressure

Grudging through this pain

Cutting through the chain

As the moon will wane

They say “the devil’s in the the dollar”

But I don’t feel the same

Dirty deeds I’ve slain

Yet they no longer remain

I’m doing it with love

So there is no shame

Nothing left to lose

But so much to gain

 

Cleanse the filth upon my hands

You’re gonna know my name

And you’ll know it well

For the good of all

Before I found the mountain

In the leaves I crawled

Searching for the truth

A place to share my youth

From the forest to fountain

From the tongue to the tooth

Communicate my glory

Share a piece of my story

I can do for you what you have done for me

A monetary stain

From all the trying strain

We deserve a piece of heaven

And it’s ours to claim

We can do it together

Community makes it better

From the angels

To the birds

Dust it off with a feather

A lighter brush of the skin

Happiness we will win

We can have what we are worth

And we can do it again

This time is ours

And it’s here right now

Pave a pathway to the future

And it’s growing tall

 

Wings

If I were to go

I would not let you know

The goals and aspirations

For an eternal soul vacation

If I were to stay

I would still have to play

Posing with a smile

For you to see past my denial

I can act without an Oscar

Let’s just forget about the SAG

It’s unofficially official

I’ve always had this in the bag

A role is but a guise

I should be happy I’m alive

All these talents and these gift

Skills for me to ride

So I try and I try

And my heart- it slowly sighs

Delivering full package

With extra miles on the side

He’s so tall and handsome

Charming and poetic

With such unique charisma

He’ll sweep you off your feet

Then he disappears again

Back toward his retreat

Back to his reality

Back to his defeat

So he wanders through the weeds

Deprived of all his needs

So he comes and then he flees

From redundant company

If I were to go

I’d leave this tired place

I’d forget about the memory

You’ll hold upon my face

If I were to go

I’d be flying free

Away from all your fears

Far away from me

Free Bird

I set my TV on fire today and watched it burn away. There was nothing good or original on it anyway. My radio kept playing ads so I smashed it with a golf club and the plastic bits from it’s cheaply made exterior grazed across my cheeks. I tossed all of my high tech gadgets and toys into a dumpster, got in my car, and drove away. I parked my car in a remote location and started walking. I kept walking and walking. I walked away from the noise. I walked away from the silence. I walked away from the lonesome void of nothing that was made of everything. I walked to the trees. I walked to the forest. I walked to the river. I walked through the wind. I felt the breeze. My skin devoured the sun. My eyes saw beauty. My mind felt peace. My soul felt freedom. My heart felt love. I was free. Free from entrapment. I found home.

Deliver

Europe in my veins

I want passion

I want blood

Right side of my brain

I want art

I want love

Aching in my pain

In this tiny little town

Justify the silence

Of this paranormal sound

American, I am

Is it free

Or am I bound

Basic trends

Of the season

Repetition all around

Stay inside the lines

As they tell me how to be

My heart is sadly yearning

For piece of liberty

Labeling my worth

With these corporate social standards

Ignorant- the dirt

Feeling lost among these bland herds

Environmental motion

Constricting by its chains

Searching for escape

For I am not the same

Let me live

Let me be

Let me fly

Let me free

Let me love

Let me dream

Let me find a place to be

Take me with the wind

Take me far away

Take me out to play

Where my heart and soul can stay

Take me to the garden

Take me to the sea

Take me to the forest

Bring me to the trees

Angel, hold me close

Bring your light to me

A circumstance by chance

Send me love to set me free

Angel, hear my call

As you know that I can’t leave

This is where I am

So send your love to me

 

Release

The scattering scrambled sound of your screeching screams

The tightly tethered tourniquet of your tragic entrapment

The distorted delusion of your derogatory diagnosis

 

The recurring resentment of your rancid rape resulting in regret

The reclusive restoration of retirement for my relinquish to relieve

Let me go

Just let me be
