Take It Easy


Why don’t we sleep tonight, and put our hurt to rest?
Hold on to this body
Safety is a feeling you won’t soon forget
Surrender to the peace rising to the surface

Hold me like you want to be held
I’ll hold you, not hold you down
I’ll tell you what little there is to be told
Take it easy

Choose your calling without warning
Lover, fighter, poet, or muse
In this bed you can be anything
There is no wrong way to simply be
Our bed peace won’t be disturbed

Hold me like you want to be held
I’ll hold you, not hold you down
I’ll listen, so tell me everything or nothing at all
Take it easy

Love is blind, but I see the beauty in my hands
You & I are falling in a place where dreams are commonplace
Leave the day where we lay & let the flames die down, as I lie with you

Hold me like you want to be held
I’ll hold you, not hold you down
I’ll listen, so tell me everything or nothing at all
Take it easy

I’ll hold you, the way you want me to
Take it easy
You’re safe with me
Take it easy
We’ll find the strength to start again
Take it easy

Beckoned


I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.

I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.

She said, “I just want to keep you, a little longer.”
She took my hand & I could not refuse her.
All I knew was that I was wanted, no needed in a new light.
With an urgency & an honesty I had never been shown before, I felt destined to stay.
Suddenly all my losses didn’t stand a chance at all.
Empathy emptied me into her until a calm had filled her soul.
Our touch could not end.

In that very moment I had become the cure & the cause for her way with words.
I knew exactly what she meant, and she knew exactly where I stood, with her by my side.
I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.
We became all that we could be, while we could be.

Grasp


I can't separate you from me.

I can’t separate you from me.

Your grasp extends beyond the way you touch me.
I feel no pressure coming from your way.
Take me without touching me.
Embracing what’s already yours like a dance we both know the moves to.
Make me feel right at home.
I hope you feel just what I mean.
Tomorrow’s never coming to take you away.

Closer than our skin knows.
So warm below the surface.
Your heat lingers like visible vapors.
Throws off my equilibrium, even though your beauty never gets in the way.
I don’t understand how you keep on finding ways to shine your light.
When words don’t come out right, your embrace sets it right.
Set free in your grasp like a compass with a clear destination.

Like raindrops falling from above, I never know where you’ll land.
But when you do, it covers me gently all the same.
You spread peace all over me.
Drenched in a warmth that can’t be calculated.
The temperature surrounding us can’t be measured by degrees.
I can’t separate you from me.
You’re still with me, even when you leave.
Your grasp extends beyond your touch.

Beautiful Surrender


Surrender can be so beautiful.

Surrender can be so beautiful.

I can’t seem to get out of bed today.
I can’t seem to get you out of my head.
How could I forget how you feel?
You make me feel different & new.
With you I’m lost & found with no way of returning.
There isn’t any doubt, I’m exploding.
I just can’t hold it in.

I just want to live in your arms.

I’m good at being bad & bad at being good.
I can’t see that part of me when you look at me.
I feel less like a stranger whenever you draw close to me.
Take my breath & pull me in again.
Cut through all the grey matter & see through me.
It’s out of my control.

Like a work of art, I want to see my dreams through your eyes.

I keep looking for something I can’t seem to find.
Maybe I’m wrong & for once that’s alright.
I can’t keep holding onto nothing.
This bloodshot heart beats violently for another breath by your side.
Yesterday can’t keep living under my skin.
Give up the ghost.
There is no future in the past.
I just want to be alone with you.

I just want to live in your arms.
Like a work of art, I want to see my dreams through your eyes.
Surrender can be so beautiful.

Withdrawal


Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Lay your head down.
Don’t be afraid to drown in the warmth of this caress.
Retreat from your body while we lose track of time.
This is not something you think about, it’s something you simply feel.
Your touch is a good kind of high.
And every time we get low you find some way to blow my mind.
Even when you can’t take no more, you yearn for it all the same.
Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.
You want it all the time & you don’t even know why.
Take comfort in taking chances.
Find rest in light of this caress.
Don’t hurry your mind.
Don’t worry your time.
