dreams of a blue skyย 

  
though the sky lay grey over mountain tops and beyond
as far as one may see, these mystic eyes are filled sublime

the clouds may feign a dive with the rain
into the oceans hold, carved through time

the air inhaled chilled to a crisp
the pain so clean, it clears the mind

the wind travels over ancient rock
towering, reaching, for heavens dock

where to rest, surely come angels
majestic wings that fan the sky all around

lifting the storm away, the sun’s shine bleeds light
as clouds once grey, now turn to white

giant cotton puffs form against a sky blue canvass
that swells into space, the angels take flight

just like that the universe smiles
how fucking beautiful, this world truly is

whether skys are grey in view
or where dreams of a blue sky comes true

The Arms of Jesus Surrounds His Flock

Jesus-Good-Shepherd-follows-sheep

Hide behind a darkness that consumes,
the light obscured,
held captive among the fumes.

Still there after all,
the fire that lives within controlled by demons,
while chained against a wall.

Shackled and collared unable to breathe,
with each inhale the fire burns inside,
a thousand degrees the lungs seethe.

Voices echo with a truth that only death can spell,
it recites the horrid rituals,
performed in hell.

With every ounce of flesh burned,
decaying beasts torment,
as horns and tails are earned.

Dare we fight the struggle of our divine, that it may set our hearts free.

Dare we spread our wings that we may soar above the mystic sea.

Dare we take the embraceable leap that will unchain a sweet melody.

Removing the cold hard steel,
that leaves us choking,
air fills, that it may begin to heal.

The embers inside continues to live,
still there after all,
for the pain endured will never forgive.

With our saviors breeze,
carries the hope of being set free,
satans flame to freeze.

It shows the way with light of heaven above,
it cools the pain,
in its own burning flame of love.

Embracing the soul to weak to walk,
even in a life of doubt,
the arms of Jesus surrounds his flock.

Say Something ~ a tri-collaboration


God stands to look over his flock
His eyes watered, a tear welled
He remembered the beginning
He recalled the love that was put
Into creating a world, that lives and breathes
With life of every kind, one, with a mind
He bowed His head and He shook
He bit his lip, blood dripped
~
โ€œSay something, Iโ€™m giving up on youโ€
Wasted plea she whispers upon His crown
Starved by the flaccid attention He feeds His sheep
She licks the remains of their tithed release
Her faith diminished under the glow of his halo
Seeking salvation that He denies with feigned grace
Forsaken by poetic scripture He inks for them
She flees to the darkness under wing of another false prophet
~
โ€œI donโ€™t love you, but I always willโ€
Is what He sees and hears from above
His flock refusing His saving grace
Relying on themselves, shunning His love
Through the pain, realization comes
They are what He created, and given free will
As their Father, Heโ€™ll always love them
and the choice to accept His love, is theirs
~
โ€œSay something, Iโ€™m giving up on youโ€
The silence was deafening as thunder shakes
โ€œSay something, Iโ€™m giving up on youโ€
Tears fall as her scorned heart breaks
โ€œSay something, Iโ€™m giving up on youโ€
His heart breaks from their continued rejection
โ€œSay something Iโ€™m giving up on youโ€
~
I surrender in blood and ashes
As the angels weep tears of sorrow
Heaven and Earth stills in reflection

A Song
Say Something by A Great Big World

Capture Stars

  
Often wondered if I’ve ever reached
If I truly gave it all…My all

Have I breathed?
Have I eaten?
Have I drunk?
Have I cared?
Have I loved?
Have I lived?
oh…
I’ve smiled.
I’ve laughed.
I’ve cried.
I’ve hated.
I’ve loved.
I’ve lived.

Yes I’ve lived
To open up my palms
To touch life that lives and breathes
And see all the moments I’ve reached
I see stars for each
But I still see space
In-between the blackness
For so much more
To place another mark
In a galaxy only I can conquor
For myself
So I will continue to
Capture Stars

A Chance For Us

  
I want your touch to feel the heat melt with mine
I want your love to hold its passion from inside
I want your kiss to fill my lungs with the air you breathe
I want it now to have and keep to the end of time

Don’t let me wait standing all alone in your company
Don’t make me beg but I will to show my strength
Don’t say this or that, excuses that it’s not meant to be
Don’t turn away from the path leading this way

But you will, you always do out of fear
But that’s you, you’ve been broken so many times
But it doesn’t have to be, there is a future here
But a chance for us, is all we need
