Music flows

music flows
sound crashes into hollowed space
spilling memories,erasing time
cleansing the cobwebs from the soul
music flows
rhythm crawls through skin
rippling over nerves
shifting, writhing, possessing muscle
music flows
emotion rolls, feet slide
hands reaching, pushing
heart rising, flying, lifted on lyrical wings
music flows
echos soar on thunderous tides
climbing,stretching, pulling , shoving
ending as suddenly as begun

The Truth

sometimes I think I only exist
in someone else's dream
removed from the emotion
and watching the action
disconnected from reality
from life, from living
from myself
being me, but in someone else's skin
and then suddenly,
i'm awake again in a painful rush
like the circulation returning
when a tourniquet is removed
and i feel like a fool
because i realize it was never me,
it was you
living in someone else's skin.

Lost in Translation

Hadi Muda Tweela
Ba mhaith liom póg a thabhairt duit
Wana Nhawis ana Wa A'la Ghazalti
Is tusa mo chuid den tsaol
Omri Fiki Antiya Ma Ghir Anitya

Mo rún, ya hbib
Tá grá agam duit

I lied.

When I told you that i was strong enough
I was leaning on you.
When I told you I was brave enough
I was never scared when i had you.
When I told you I could watch you walk away
I was wrong
so wrong.
When I told you I wouldnt cry
I was faking that smile.
When I told you I wouldnt miss you
I thought you would always be with me.
When I told you I didnt need you
I knew how much I wanted you.
when I told you I didnt love you...
Thats when I lied.

one slip
and the razor'd tongue
flays into the life
irrepairable damage
like teeth in the shaft
nails shredding skin
two kinds of scars baby
careful what you ask for

All I have

words are all we have between us
promises and fantasies,
shadows on the wall
what we want, what we have
was never real, never true
only words and words will lie
but they're all I have of you.
And this lie is better than nothing at all.

Don't let go
is what you asked of me
what you made me promise
and so im holding on
as tight as i can
I can feel you slipping from my grasp
slinking away with my sanity
but I wont let go.
Because I promised.
And so im holding on
as tight as i can
and ignoring the pain
ignoring the truth
that maybe youre not slipping
youre pulling away
and you'll leave me holding on
to nothing but an empty promise

Be Mine?

i cant let my heart break for you any more.
every time it shatters
pieces go missing
splinters forever lost
until finally there will be nothing left but glue
and the bits of glitter i used to hide the seams
