Crucible


Being shallow ends when something deep means more...

Being shallow ends when something deep means more…

Remnants of a love you knew cascades across the ocean floor
Shadows of the heart sink to the bottom
Don’t let all that wreckage drag you down
The past is an anchor when the future’s not around to give direction to a heart that’s lost at sea
Spread out amongst the many waves
Drifting away at a steady pace
There is trouble in these waters

Time washes away more & more memories
Carried away effortlessly into the middle of nowhere
Being shallow ends when the deep wants more
And suddenly you’re in over your head
Washed over by the sea, where a pool once used to be
What are you holding your breath for?

All the little ripples become whirlpools when you don’t know what you’re in for
Against the rising tides its hard to hear you anymore
Affection is not attraction, that’s why there’s no sense of direction when we’re not close
The crashing waves make our weaknesses seem so unending
Not hiding it, only reinforcing our vast differences beneath the depths
Being strong means knowing when to not fight anymore & not trying to control it all
You take what you can get, because it doesn’t come around as often as it should
Wait it out until an opening presents itself to come up for air

A single breath was taken
Filling you with dreams once more
Your heart beats steady after finding somewhere to swim towards
Nothing’s in your way, unless you let it be
Let life catch up to you
Make peace with that shell made out of old ways before it weighs you down
Your crucible tests you to the core of your being
You won’t be the same as you were before
No one found peace in fear
You will see the world differently
Being shallow ends when something deep means more
Send your heart out as though it were a message in a bottle
An S.O.S. for a lonely & hopeful soul
In time you will find your way

The Lowest Point


I’m on my way down to the bottom for what I hope will be the last time
It can’t get much more difficult than it is
But I’ve been wrong before
Right now a breaking point sounds like a good vacation
Tomorrow I’ll be drinking to keep myself from thinking about me
Nothing seems the same & familiar means nothing when you don’t recognize what you’re seeing

Show me a way, make me find a better way
Do me a favor, don’t let me go without knowing where we stand

I don’t want to be alone, but I must be cus I’m out here on my own
Oh, there must be a silver lining & I can’t see it cus I’m running blind
These tears are tearing me up inside
Breaking down the walls I try so hard to hide behind
Its easier to seem so strong inside a house of stone before the storm

Blow me away, take me down to a better day
Take me away, wake me up to a better person

Morning light find a way into this room in my heart
Been up all night worrying about what tomorrow brings
Can’t see a thing & I don’t know if I really want to
Being blind isn’t freedom when blinding freedom comes with a clear destination
And company isn’t cheap when the company you keep isn’t worth a damn
So maybe being on my own is a blessing, but I hope that you will bless me with your presence from time to time my friend

Show me a way, make me find a better way
Blow me away, take me down to a better day

I’m on my way down to the bottom for what I hope will be the last time

Do me a favor, don’t let me go without knowing where we stand
Take me away, wake me up to a better person

NOTE:
I just wrote this 10 minutes ago as I was about to fall asleep, after being awake for the last 3 hours. Insomnia has its perks… Sometimes.

Stain


How do I get this stain out?
Out of the ground I walk on.
Out of my system.
Out of my life.

Ratio of three to one.
Three lines crossed against this one life.
Trust, dignity & truth versus everything I knew.
It’s soaked deep into the pores, into the very fabric of who I’ve become.
I don’t want this bloodstained floor you’ve walked all over to colour who I am.

You filled me with regret until I could take no more.
Hoping that no one would see, every time I dried my tears.
There is nothing left for you to take.
Nothing you can do.
I will remove this blemish, but first I have to get rid of you.
