In Stillness

 

You are sand slipping through my hands

Like water, wet and wily

You are time itself

Moving, always moving

Marching wildly

 

I want to stop you with my kiss

I want to hold you down with just my hips

I want you shaking while you sit

In stillness

 

You are the wind tumbling about

I am a river of stone

Holding myself from the inside out

And you wash through me

Eroding all resistance

Only to leave me stranded in your distance

 

I want to stop you with my kiss

I want to hold you down with just my hips

I want you shaking while you sit

In stillness

 

I want to tame you with my body

Drown you in the depths of longing

Tie your hands to my chest

Until you become the very beat of me

I Choose Kindness

 

The world sits cold and heavy on my chest

And the only thing I know to do

Is to try and do my best

 

All the truth is tangled up in webs

We fight to prove we’re right

But we’re killing ourselves instead

 

So, I choose kindness

I choose love

I choose my brothers and my sisters

I choose to rise above

 

I choose to help instead of harm

I’ll let my words be soft and warm

I choose kindness

I choose love

 

I refuse to let this cruel world make me mean

I refuse to take a side so

I’ll straddle the in between

 

And I choose kindness

I choose love

I choose my brothers and my sisters

I choose to rise above

 

I choose to help instead of harm

I’ll let my words be soft and warm

I choose kindness

I choose love

Let Me In

 

Did she set you on fire with the first taste of her lips?

Did she drown you in desire for the feel of her hips?

Did she create who you are by the way she touched you?

Did you fall to your knees for a feeling all new?

 

It rocked you, held you

Shook you, consumed you

The feeling you felt when it's all brand new

But the rocking will stop

And the shaking wont last

Let me help you let go

Of the spell that she cast

 

You wont let someone in unless they can give

The rush that you felt from her fingertips

You'll wait for all time for a feeling you crave

You'll leave behind loves that can't give what she gave

 

Let me in to rock you

Let me in to consume you

Le me in to do all the things I could do

Let me touch you and tease you

Taste you and please you

Poetry

Never Too Late

 

Inspiration begs at the tip of my tongue

But can’t find its way out of me

Everyone keeps moving, finding their way

But I’m still down on my knees

 

I’m not a beggar

But I’m pleading for some relief

I’m not a pauper

But I’m threadbare at my seams

 

Gonna break down these walls

Bust through my blocks

Tear this shit down to the roots and the rocks

To build it up again

Up again

 

Gonna plow through my fears

Tango with doubt

Unzip myself from the inside out

I’ll be born again

Born again

  

No matter what they tell you

It’s never too late to be brand new

Never too late

Never too late

See You Shining

 

Oh, my friends

I wish you could see you like I do

The kindness in your eyes

Your hearts shining through

 

You are, you are, you are

Beauty and truth

You are, you are, you are

Beauty and truth

 

Oh, my friends

I wish you could see you like I do

The wisdom of your souls

The depths that you hold

 

You are, you are, you are

Beauty and truth

You are, you are, you are

Beauty and truth

 

I can see the space between

Every stitch and every seam

It’s brilliant and it’s blinding

I can see you shining

I can see you shining

Written in the Air

 

Attraction is a funny word

Often used without a care

But baby when it comes to us

It’s written in the air

 

It mostly goes unspoken

We pretend it isn’t there

But baby when it comes to us

It’s written in the air

 

Sometimes it’s confusing

Or very, very clear

But baby when it comes to us

It’s written in the air

 

Attraction is a live wire

Or simple and divine

A powder keg of dynamite

Or stays between the lines

It’s capricious and it’s messy

It’s a soul stirring affair

And baby when it comes to us

It’s written in the air

 

No flirty lines

No sultry eyes

No need to speak our minds

It’s all there is

No more than this

You could read it if you’re blind

 

So baby hold it close

It’s delicate and rare

Cuz’ when it comes to us

It’s written in the air

Castle

 

Bought something new today

Shiny trinkets to numb the pain

You’re at it again

 

Can’t hide your feelings

Can’t hide your shame

Little words like little birds

You hope will carry you away

Made big plans today

Forever distracted to ignore the pain

You’re at it again

Castle of gold turning to stone

Heartbeat, beating sad and alone

Your castle is dark

Your castle is cold

Let go

Let go

Your castle’s not your home

 

Great big smiles over empty eyes

Great big promises to cover the lies

You’re at it again

You’re at it again

 

Run to the ends of the earth

Run till the end of time

Run, run, run for your life
