mothers, fathers, children's dreams faces that were once aglow countless bodies, arms, and legs lie beneath the fallen snow as babies' bodies lie here broken i think of all the things unspoken all the things they'll never know like war and freshly fallen snow
the sun is setting on a day filled fun in every way playful times are at an end soon a new way time you'll spend gone are hours of timeless bliss fate has sealed it with a kiss the sun is dawning on a day filled with sadness and dismay hours spent as mindless drones with our faxes and our phones we think about the other day when joy unteathered lead the way the sun is setting once again soon our sorrow and our pain shall melt into the reddened sky this time must come we know not why we lie down for our final sleep breathing slow and dreaming deep
bravery foolish bravery is courage just a mask to hide one's fear? gut wrenching fear gnawing fear what kind of fear is yours? does it eat away at the darkest recesses of your soul slowly making its way to the surface? does it stab you like a thousand knives sinking into your stomach? what kind of fear is yours? is yours a fear of the boogey man lurking in your closet just waiting for you to fall asleep? is yours a fear of the man from whose loins you sprung as he enters your room each night in a twisted ritual? is your fear that this emptiness will never be filled? that this longing will never end? or is it a fear of losing that which is closest to you? that which is most dear the only thing that lets you know your alive the only thing that's real what kind of fear is yours?
Gentle rain falling on my face I stand in the downpour Trying to wash away the stains of despair I stare up into the falling rain As gentle laughter escapes my lips The rain falls, soaking me to the bone As it fills me, it leaves no room for The heartache I carried inside me for so long I am finally free
Bestow unto me The strength to see this through Return unto me The love I gave to you Restore to life The heart that you destroyed Cure me of The pain I can't avoid
Love is a whispering breeze Billowing clouds of love Raindrops of pain Lightening bolts of anger When the rain stops All is once renewed Birds sing The sun shines All the world smiles again Except the worms who wither and die in the coming sun
I took a walk through a land of dreams Faces, images, voices, sounds All the dreams of mankind Melded there into one Fear, love, rejection, power All the fantasies we entertain Danced before me The sky was a swirling orb Of seeming chaos masking a peculiar order I walked along the shore Where the lapping tide ranged From the sound of children's laughter To some strange demon's roar The denizens of this strange land Lived side by side Yet independent of each other The dreams were thousands But one One Yet thousands still Innumerable as the stars I therefore came to see All dreams are one Though each mind's eyes Views it through the filter Of its own heart
