Still


Photomicona - Natalia Mindru

When everything seems complicated, I simply want you.

When emotions are running high and we’ve exhausted all reason,
I want to quiet our wounded insecurities with a touch of love.

When my thoughts have become loud and heavy,
I want your lips to quiet my own with a kiss.

When there is nothing to say,
I want us to say everything with that look which transcends words.

When everything seems complicated,
I simply want you.

Love The Pain


84aefd1f6ed64ff96ac6069ca1929165

I love you and it’s killing me

We are so close and yet so distant
You don’t realize that I’m not your enemy
We’re always fighting to be at peace
I don’t know who I am when we fight
I can’t be who you are

We spend so much time living like assassins
Turning words into weapons when we collide
Hold me by the heart just to get even
You hurt just to keep me with you
I can’t fight your fears forever

Our Russian Roulette relations won’t let me live
You want me to hurt like you
Break my bones verbally until I fall back on what I believe
You’re never wrong, that’s why we’ll never be right
I can’t look up to you when you look down on me

I can’t make you see
I love you and it’s killing me

Simple


Keep it simple and we won’t miss

Short and sweet
Never stopping to breathe
Living for light wherever it can be found
When the night comes our way may we shine brightly

Hide and seek
Such a beautiful mind is hard to find
If you feel lost I will find you
Lose yourself inside my eyes and you’ll never be alone

Safe and sound
Hand in hand holding space
My space and time we’re made for you
We’re time traveling between precious moments

Slow and steady
Let’s do this the right way
Heaven only knows where we’ll go
Patience show us what we can’t see

Keep your eyes on me
It’s the simple things we miss
Everything else can come and go
Keep it simple and we won’t miss

Masks (Pt. 3)


image

You’re dangerous only when you’re misunderstood.
You want to cross the lines you know all too well.
Reflection shows what’s going on inside.

Hiding behind what you hate to admit.

The things we do to disguise our urges.
Getting caught up in drugs by any other name.
We’re either running to or from ourselves.

See through my demeanor and shades of grey.

You can’t react to what you don’t recognize.
Look deeper before you love the skin I’m in.
What the light tends to miss is what the dark can’t resist.

Freedom can be frightening, that’s why we want more.

All the things you’ve done become you, if you let them.
Introduce me to your truest identity.
All those secrets, take them off.

I want to see you.

Masks (Pt. 2)


photostudio_1456278786852

Why would anyone want the truth when the lie is more entertaining?
Give the people what they want.
Smile through the storm.
Pain isn’t beautiful, it’s forgettable.

I can’t let it show.
Who I am is not who I’ve been.
But you only see what you want.

From the way I talk, to the way I move.

I wear my wrongs and leave the past where it belongs.
While my shortcomings are missing I’ll tell you everything you want to hear.
Reckless discovery overtake me.
I can’t stay the same.

See the pain, feel the pleasure.
Hiding behind a good time is more than meets the eye.
If I show you who I really am, you can’t tell nobody.
Turn the lights down low and I’ll let you in.

I’ll show you something real.
