I will wait

The Moon he waits on the Sun to rise
To take his place amongst the stars
The rose wakens with morning dew
Embrace the day and start anew
Patience a virtue longs to be
A rainbow only follows rain
A lover’s caress, a memory
I visit you inside my dream
A biding of time to pass the day
Winter falls in deepest slumber
Seasons do pass by counting their days
A wish on bended knee I pray
If good things come to those in waiting
The passing of time without you
My heart it waits for you forever
If ever is never
Still I will wait for you
***

Ink

Drowning in a blue inkwell
Suffocating in your words
Unravelled and chaotic
My sublime to your absurd
Hidden treasures I do find
In some of your rambling thoughts
Falsehoods spiraling
The words you choose say a lot
Careful conjecture takes me
To a place I cannot delve
Love inconspicuously
Keeps my heart upon a shelf
Wax my darling poetic
With an ounce or two of rhyme
Every word you have spoken
Forever kept in my mind
Straight is the arrow you aim
From dear Cupid’s wordy bow
A bullseye when you kiss me
A miss when you let me go
Parting is such sweet sorrow
The romantic oft’ will say
When Dear John starts your letter
No words can cradle the break
***

Knowing you were there

I may have perhaps maybe
Overlooked a thing or two
Promised that you mattered
Made you feel my untruth
Living in a fantasy
An escape from a life blue
Wanting every bit of you
But still less then you deserved
Keeping what was broken
Hoping you couldn't see
Every indecision
Kept me away from free
I painted me a picture
Unorthodox family
Where everyone was happy
And hope sprung from belief
A tiny place that kept me
From my own reality
A place where my life ended
Where I find eternity
In my jar of hearts you stay
A love forever true
Perhaps maybe one day
I find my way to you
***

Daughter

How did I not feel
The sadness in you
How did I not know
You were feeling blue
Why did I not see
What you wouldn't let me
I love you daughter
You're my everything
***

Splayed

For this day I am unprepared
My heart beating fast, alone, scared
Frail heart broken, shattered it lie
Fragments of memories maligned
Dear sister your tears wet my eyes
Crisp the sun, let dawn still rise
Fevered sorrow melt my poor heart
Sad little white girl fuck yourself
Kiss me mother, wipe my brow
Forgive my sins I am good now
Crush my spirit filter my joy
Play me no longer, not your toy
For this day I am ready now
When you left, you tumbled my crown
Dear white girl what is your worry
Wrist splayed open, feel my fury
Now I lay me down to sleep
Forever lays my poor sheep
If I die before I wake
Sad white girl makes her escape
***

Dance

I dance like I breathe
All pieces of me
In motion are free
Across this old floor
Where I can just be
Alive and dreaming
Never settling
Always wanting more
A dance so intense
I escape my chest
My heart beats so fast
I fly soaring high
On wings sung in rhyme
Darling girl this day
Breaks the dawn to be
A waltz danced in time
Purity we are
Living in this world
Singing our own song
Music in my head
Searching for lyrics
Dear Sir will you play
A sad song for me
Happy melodies
To forget the blues
I will put on these shoes
And I will dance for you
Come join I promise
Words are the music
Music is the Sun
Freedom as easy
Letting your body
Move in time to rhyme
I am somebody
In dance every time
***

Once

I didn’t want you to love me
This is why I had to go
Haven’t you heard about me
I’m a lesson that you learn
All my life I avoided
Anything close to the truth
Still in my way I loved you
I never meant you to hurt
My eyes always look forward
Back is a place I don’t go
The past is only shadows
A mirror looking back at me
Although once you did matter
A reflection of a ghost
Kiss me now before I leave
Wipe your tears and broken heart
See me please for what I am
Now and forever we part
***

Derelict

Derelict this soul of mine
Treading in waters flooded
Seeking penance for himself
Absolution for his crimes
Destitute is this girl’s heart
Desperate in want of you
Solemn she commits pretense
Unwilling is she to part
Bloody are her wounds undressed
Grieve I for pieces shattered
Heaven is what I’m after
Otherwise a girl repressed
Redemption, daughter is here
Escape to the here-after
Seek not answers to this world
Rather it not rule your fear
Quiet is night in slumber
Rest your weary head my dear
Heavy is the earth’s blanket
Forfeit what lay asunder
***

Plain to See

I know the answer, it is plain to see
Still I am unable to let it be
I want to make this inexplicably
Something lingering, mindlessly, hurting
Is there something perhaps that I don’t know?
Drowning in wisdom, believing hope floats
Listening to fairy tales poached from our ghosts
Fully awake yet forever dreaming
A path well-travelled, heed warnings are clear
My tattered heart for certain will not fare
Fate is delivered on wings of my tears
Still you do beckon, I hear you calling
Daylight unveils your truth, laying to bare
Night reveals darkness in every player
Pretending that I no longer do care
Outside she smiles, inside she is weeping
***

Obsession

Excess me
I flit, I fly
Shiny things
Let me soar
Drug-fuelled sky
Lift me up
Say goodbye
I will dance
I will be
Yours tonight
Tonight I
Saving grace
Sing to me
My darling
Got no face
Ever do
You need more
I’m flying
Come with me
Someone’s whore
In or out
Damn this world
Who’s counting?
Keeping score
Always girl
Night over
Walk this line
Forever
I tremble
You are mine
***

Take Me Home

Take me home won't you
To where I once lived
To dance in meadows
Sheltered by willows
The weeping tree lies
Her branches seeping
Windswept breezes soar
I will wait for you
My forever home
Take me home will you
A new forever
Lost souls reunite
Golden moons reign free
Lord of the night sky
Soothe the savage beast
Let the weary rest
Waken dreams sleeping
Where wishes do fly
***

Wired

Wired
I am standing
Shadows chase me
Unravelling
Facing
Fester
Depravity
This indifference
Beguiled cruelty
Distance
Save me
Unhinge
Living fringe
Escaping my
Reality
Weathered
Destroyed
Being only
All I can be
Simply
Always
Me
***

Dangling

Who lets these salted tears?
Fallen from grace she lay
Still. Frozen. Wanting less
For more, given in haste
Slaughtered wholesome. Unrest
Want for sanctioned pardon
Wilted desire her
Flagrant demanding self
Seek redemption surely
Pity I disavow
Relentless this pursuit
Of happiness does breathe
Wanting. Needing. Giving
Death comes her skeleton
Dangling bones. Click-clack
Puppets strung on wires
Dance. I will show you how
Majestic in my show
Forever devoured
Shhh I whisper to you
Forgive me all my sins
Sister I have returned
Unwelcome in your world
Screaming inside and out
***

Heed

Cursed. Cast her image aside
Seek gratification
Filthy her soul denied
Heaven barred. Earthly treasure
Sinners rejoice for to hide
Fearful of truth, they all lie
Wallow. Swallow this false hope
Eat my bread. Penance awaits
Blessed be the fruit. My trial
This girl seeks to discover
Sorrow whipped she is broken
Cemented are her demons
Precious the crusted diamond
Plundered from cavernous rock
Shine sister and heal thyself
Sing to the heavens above
Orphaned freedom a dark sin
Society is blinded
Heed.

Saturn Days - The Two Mavericks

A collaboration piece by 'The Two Mavericks'

You are 'truly' the gem of our Sun’s system
Far beyond compare, there just is no doubt
You caress all of your rings with such pride
It appears they enjoy the revolutionary ride
Revolving and spinning in a blissful rhythm
Your dutiful sentinels, all around and about
Your rings and things in all colors and hues
alluring to behold, bombs that have no fuse
You control the night, like some festive king
out in your onyx empire, such an easy thing
With this ring I thee wed
Beguiled by your many moons
Forever do you embrace
Sheltered heartache I swoon
Pale your shadows upon me
This night of flight in the stars
Beautiful your destiny
Pure wonderment from afar
Lustful and wanton you lead
For to claim me as your own
Wistful night darkens in light
Never far my heart will roam
Moons in heaven’s name yours’ all sixty two
They are small and large it’s just simply true
But these orbiters do only take second place
To your resplendent rings with all their grace
Oh sweet Saturn as the belle of the solar ball
Rejoice inside your sacred rings each and all!
_ End _

Jump

If I jumped would you save me
I jumped because you made me
Boy please, I know you played me
Disrespected
And rejected
Conjecture
Premature
If i begged would you make me
If I fell would you catch me
Lay broken would you fix me
For my soul do you pray
In the night as I lay
Sacrificial lamb I
Heart bleating
Not breathing
If I die would you mourn me
Weep to those who have failed me
Right the wrongs that have slayed me
Dissatisfied
With this damn life
A piper's price
If you prick me do I bleed
Sliced open eternity
Hell's damnation awaits me
Boy please, you are killing me

***

Vessel

I'm a vessel
Fulfill your need
The planter's seed
Inside of me
Makes me scream
Your devil spawned
Will never be
Cursed
Wretched
Broken machine
Is plasticine
Moulded to what
He needs to be
Tended garden
Fit for a King
I wear your ring
Hell's fire bring
Damnation child
Forever wild
Release
This beast
Inside of me
Motherless girl
Denied your world
Foolhardy
Cruelty
Just need to breathe
Freedom waiting
Outside the gate
This captured fate
I'm a vessel
In God's name
For me pray

Box of Hearts

I lay gutted upon the floor
Please do hurry through my back door
In the cupboard, high on a shelf
My special box of beating hearts
If you would please bring one to me
A brand-new heart is what I need
This old one has broken in two
Torn up, beat up, it just won’t do
Fresh and new like a summer’s breeze
Gives me hope as it beats inside
Send a new love to me oh please
I’m taking this heart for a ride
I rise-up from my knees and smile
Renewed once more my life will start
Wait for me as I lock the door
Goodbye for now dear box of hearts
***

Masquerade

I am on my back flat
Finish your cigarette
I ain't going nowhere (yet)
Let me pretend instead
Crush me. Your filthy self
Vacant eyes they deny
Desperate means, I ply
My trade. Pithy voices (cry)
You grope me as you come
Empty of any hope
Existing I succumb
Fading I am noone
Each moment I rehearse
This dance a masquerade
Born into this life cursed
Await my lonely grave
Gnarled limbs cast a shadow
Long parted yesterday
Faith is in her morrow
Is it too late to pray?
***

Fragments

In mourning I see darkness with eyes open
Fragments of you spilling out onto the floor
Desperately you reach wanting to return
In mourning I am unable to move on
Faded pages unbound released into sky
Heavy voices singing to crown a new king
The devil's calling a disguised lullaby
I am mourning a savage who stripped me bare
Splayed my soul open, a gallery canvas
Blank faces staring indifferent to my art
I am morning, a new light weighted by night
Hopeful as breaths filled with summer fragrance
Needful of your every attention and joy
Beckon this girl from the depths of her madness
I am mourning for her, the girl that she was
***

Mural

All in my head I digress
Placate me, virgin's request
Fuck the pretence
See this great mural of truth 
Bullshit canvas ain't no proof
Beep. Game over
Let's be normal for today
Pencil me in as busy
C'mon let's play
Trash cans and a street corner
Streetwise is my Jack Horner
Let me lay here
With care I place my checker
Close to your home I wander
Will you king me
See this game that I do play
Jane of chance eliminate
No looking back
Counting coin to fill my sack
Toss them, steal them, give them back
A piece of tin
Settle not for less then truth
Jesus Christ is not Babe Ruth
What he gives he
Will take from you
***

Sad Song

I need a sad song please
Play it for me again
My dear blue collar man
Oh take me by the hand
Fill me with ideas
Let us dance and pretend
Tease me and delight me
I am yours until then
Hold me close forever
And let me be your queen
When you are inside me
You are my everything
You fill me over and
Over again and more
Let me be your play thing
Garden ornament or
Porcelain baby doll
You light me on fire
C'mon my dearest girl
My heart, my love, my all
***

Indifferent

Hey, I just want to say
Pick me, choose me, okay
I may not be who you
Need while I seek my truth
A soul hungers unfed
Seriously I want
To be dead
I regret
Wish unsaid
Give me a second chance
I will wait for romance
Can you at least pretend
You want more
Than a whore
I am educated
Don't want complicated
You are overrated
If you doubt
Figure out
What you need
Today if you would please
While I am on my knees
Perhaps this is the end
Of our little story
If there is anymore
Scraps of us on the floor
Pity morsels you give
Easy pieces devoid
Of meaning or of life
Hanging by a single
Thread. On this I rely
All my senses tingle
The shop bell rings out loud
Last one out one last time
Undressed angel on high
This her final goodnight
***

Moon Musings

“Moon Musings”
by
‘The Two Mavericks’
Our moon is an inexplicable orb to be sure
Silent and satisfied ever so pallid and pure.
One side watches over us the other demure
This silvery sentinel with all its cryptic allure
Blue moon you do so tremble
Wishing for hugs and kisses
With pale eyes you gaze upon
This darkness that has fallen
Night’s obsidian shroud reveals your power
Your alabaster facade in the midnight hour
Your so subtle revolutions barely noticeable
Make your intrepid presence 'quite' indelible
Soliloquy of sorrow neath a pale blue moon
Set the Sun to darken let wallow I, in gloom
Caress the winds like silk upon my downcast face...
Somber is my mourning shallow filled is my grace
Imprisoned, inspired by her gentle beauty
Lush, her light tenders mercy to the fallen sky
Like grains of sand sifting through my fingers softly
Gentle rose she wilts drawing shelter from your night
Primal like the Wolf baleful moans and lusty breaths
Striking fear, my heart in simple shadows does rest
Quietly she rises gloriously to claim
Savage she ravages sanity from the sane
While in the end, and end of time and times
You are up there beyond ‘all’ poetic rhymes
There are 'other' moons in circumnavigation
Many planets have moons within gravitation
But you are one of a kind and will always be
Oh azure moon I do thank the Lord for thee!
_ End _

Moon

Soliloquy of sorrow neath a pale blue moon
Set the Sun to darken let wallow I, in gloom
Caress the winds like silk upon my downcast face
Somber is my mourning shallow filled is my grace

Imprisoned, inspired by her gentle beauty
Lush, her light tenders mercy to the fallen sky
Like grains of sand sifting through my fingers softly
Gentle rose she wilts drawing shelter from your night

Primal like the Wolf baleful moans and lusty breaths
Striking fear, my heart in simple shadows does rest
Quietly she rises gloriously to claim 
Savage she ravages sanity from the sane

Mom

At her knees I wept my hands cradled hers
Silent her voice, filled with thickness and tears
Frail her shoulders bowed, nestled her despair 
Fifty years bequeathed vanished without care
Crumpled in darkness she emptied her soul
Though she was broken she still was my sun
With tear filled eyes she quietly did say
Your dad has left but I am here to stay
Through time I know we miss but we will move on
This lady my hero, always my mom

Heart

The counting of my heart
Keeping pace with my breath
An ordinary day
Inside my beating chest

You can feel it racing
Coursing throughout my veins
The very life of me
An ordinary day

Swell my breast with each beat
Release this aching need
Make most of this game played
Make ordinary scream

Death this Achilles heel
Sweet linger my desire
Quell the flames of passion
My heart forever denied

Defy ordinary
Loving without regret
Passionate my plea
In coin my heart is spent

***

Burden

Heavy is the burden
This cloak that I put on
Deep my pain, losing you
A smile to hide my frown
Plastic are promises
I wear upon my sleeve
Incredible, I bow
Master of make believe
The thief of all I'd known
Stripped naked on my knees
Painted face, upside down
See how my makeup bleeds
All the world loves a clown
I stand alone on stage
This girl chameleon
Brokenhearted and brave

***

Believe in yourself

Believe in yourself
Even when you don’t
Tomorrow will come
Don’t allow the doubt
Possibility
Was there all along
Know that you matter
That hope is not gone

Believe in yourself
And refuse to drown
You make a difference
Show the world your crown
Your tarnished star shines
Bright, with love and truth
My miracle child
I believe in you

***

Day

This quiet hour
The darkness lifts
To reveal a day
That soon begins
Clarity in sunlight
Like a summer breeze
Mighty and so new
An awakening
Oh glorious Sun
What joy you bring
This early morning
My day begins

***

I hold your hand in mine

I held your hand in mine
You fade into the night
Your light once shining bright
Dimmed when the angels came
I have known all along
How badly I failed you
If only I knew how
I would have reclaimed you

I hold your hand in mine
The girl inside of me
Wishing for something else
Forever is unseen
What changed to let you go?
Fiercely freed from my grasp
I never let you know
How dearly you mattered

I held your hand in mine
I wish I was stronger
A girl frozen in time
Needing you for longer
Your sad eyes remind me
Rise from your ashes strewn
Of who I used to be
A girl that I once knew
Shatter this hollow shell
See who I have become
Every trace of you
Vanquished but never done

I hold your hand in mine
Weary I let you rest
Forgive me for my sins
The voices in my head
I remember this girl
Her smile a gift to life
Tragically unloved
You once were my whole world

***

Effortless

I killed someone
I decided
With derision
My decision
You no longer
Mattered to me
And set you free
Broken hearted
When we parted
And soon to be
Someone that was
And now is lost
Someone I need
And now won’t be
The girl for me
I wish you were
The girl I knew
And now this past
Does come to haunt
Never I doubt
Shutting you out
And asking you
To exit the show
Without a bow
My dearest girl
My crazy world
Stories untold
You have to go
This mess I made
Victim you played
What you cost me
I am sorry
Trite and hoary
Dear God I am
On bended knee
Begging you please
Please forgive me
For not choosing
And for losing
The only girl who
Mattered was you
I killed someone
I am alone
Who I once was
Never begun
This girl undone

***

Please Mama

Don’t let the water pull you down
Please mama don’t you cry
I feel like I am drowning
When you told me I could fly?

All the magic has disappeared
I can no longer see
Joy in this life I’m living
The water will set me free

Warm are the fingers leading me
Through murky waters deep
Mama’s voice sweetly singing
Lulling me gently to sleep

With angel wings I can fly
Soaring in skies of blue
Please mama don’t you cry
I will see you one day soon

***

Something Small Reminded Me

Something small reminded me of you today
So, I turn on the record player and cry
Music take me in your arms and hold me please
Let me weep for everything that we lost

And for what my heart knows never will be
I have a picture of you tucked away
In a box of things treasured from a life past
Pieces of paper, ribbons sweetly scented

Markers of an innocence rare and true
Oh, how I wish my tears were the water
To replenish this love that we once knew
Slowly I lend myself to the music

Every note whispers longingly to me
Passion wakens from a winter’s slumber
A volcanic eruption fills my soul
You my darling it has always been you

***

And still I breathe

There are lots of reasons for me to go
At my feet broken promises lay dead
The only sin of this non-sinner
Believing everything that you said

I’m on my knees
I beg you please
This life I give
And still I breathe

My entire life I have spent waiting
For someone like you to come along
I thought that you were worth the heartache
How did I get so good at being wrong?

I’m on my knees
My heart it bleeds
Not wanting to live
And still I breathe

Do let me climb this stairway to nowhere
I am ready to get up off the ground
I am ready to look only forward
Release me from the ties which I am bound

I’m on my knees
Eyes open wide
Do you see me
I cannot breathe

***

Sad girl

Sad girl speak your words
What have you to say
Your kingdom will fall
From a broken mind
Lest devil's voice sway

I speak only truth
Hilly mountains climbed
Take pity brethren
Seek paths untaken
His grace I remind

Plunder his virtue
Rape his gift of life
Please hold your sorry
Your voice, your story
Set fire your fight

Sad girl mistaken
What you cannot see
Will never be real
Hold tight your children
Believe what you feel

***

A small noise

A small noise to let me know
I'm not alone in this world
I talk big but I feel small
This girl stands high on a ledge
Wondering where she went wrong

The sun shines to hide the night
In shadows she plays pretend
Jigsaw pieces don't fit right
A game of war she can't win
Losing the fight of her life

Pieces she plays red and black
Unchecked her past fast to haunt
Moving forward can't look back
Slow down so she can catch up
Hit the pavement; death meets crack

***

There is no joy

When there is no joy
Your flower wilted
Unimportant things
An absence you feel
You are on the edge
Not of glory
Nor heaven
You are a sinner
An automated
Machine piloted
To exist for who?
Sighs the only real
Part of her left
Bleed from her eyes
Spill from her soul
Weep from her heart
Spare her life choices
Good led her to you
She is unwelcome
At the altar of
Forever because
She chose to drown

***

I Wonder

I wonder whether you miss me
Knowing you were close by
Laying my skin to yours heated
My body touching you all night

Unwrapped I gave you everything
All that I had to give
My life in your hands delivered
You're the only reason I live

Sand dollars on the ocean floor
Just a moment in time
Until the tide washes over
Withstanding forever this life

Seek and you will be granted
Magic on your first try
A young girl foolish forgotten
Save her soul for soon she will die

Hold my hand as though you love me
Escape this moment dear
Pretence the ribbon unravelled
Still I see you in my mirror

***

In my room

In my room
Four by eight
I self-built
No one in
No one out
Filled with doubt
Sleep is lost
Windowless
Keep me in
Keep you out
Like a cage
Holds me tight
Hear her sing
Songbird's flight
Tiny room
Fills my brain
Free from harm
Free from pain
Plain white walls
Fence me in
No laughter
Only screams
Void of joy
Filled with shame
Secrets kept
Hidden blame
Poor lost girl
Not a game
Say her name
For God's sake
Keep her sane
Shout at her
And love her
Like a code
Decipher
Can't fix her
Relentless
Sadness
Feed her walls
Suck gladness
Look behind
Her bright eyes
Tired smile
Unhappy breeds
Please don't leave
Stay awhile
I love you
And need you
This poor fool
Of a girl
You now are
Her whole world
***

Not

It is so hard to not
Easier to just do
How I wish I could not
But when it comes to you
I know that I cannot
Not love you
Think of you
Or want you
Powerless
Though I am
Relentless
My pursuit
Happiness
Includes you
Not, you see will not do
Everything I am
I have because of you
My feelings deep and true
Not a thing in this world
I can afford to lose
I wear you like a noose
***

Gossamer Breeze

I am alone
A tree in a forest
Wanting to be different
I am a bird
Preordained is my flight
Fear keeps me standing still
I am the sky
Gossamer breeze my wings
Heavy my rain of tears
I am a believer
Raging doubt fells my stride
An angel with clipped wings
Falling verses
Preaching freedom
Tiny am I
Small this vast life
***

Take Me To Church

Take me to church
Let the choir sing
You phony bastard
Never let me in
You taunted me
With your damn magic
Exotic creature
Walking disaster
And still you teased
Declaring your love
You said I mattered
That I was the one
Praise me in verse
Mighty the pulpit
I am your student
Fill me with righteous
The lights come down
Let us dance once more
In your arms I fall
No longer your whore
***

Weeping Tree

Sit beneath the weeping tree
Muddle through your destiny
Ponder why you feel sorrow
Feel the joy of tomorrow
Quiet the breeze it whispers
Her artful moan it brings us
Closer to home in my mind
Old memories i rewind
Second guessing means to doubt
Celebrate what life's about
Dare you ask for time to stop
Darling girl I'm all you've got
***

Words

Image may contain: one or more people

If we wear what we say
A coat of words worn loud
An outspoken prayer
Baring innermost thoughts 
Every word whispered 
Forever on display
Red for you my darling
Bled my heart inspired 
I meant every thought said

Imaginary People

Imaginary people
Living inside of me
Filling me with ugly
Like garbage men collecting
The best parts of me
Raging voices wanting more
Never will I be free
And through all this madness
They are consuming me
I can no longer hide
Knock-knock-knocking at my door
A prisoner trapped forever
These thieves of my tomorrow
***

Second Best

I wish no longer to be second best
For once if possible please put me first
Roar of the crowd as they shout out my name
Makes no difference to me, it’s you I crave
Pick of the litter, ignoring the runt
So many options for you to choose from
Who is the winner, could it be me?
I’m tired of second, second’s no fun
With bated breath and all fingers crossed
Like a lottery ball my fate is tossed
Fanfare or Dear John please which one is me
Am I forever or a used-to-be?
I wish no longer to be second best
My wish is simple, not asking for much
A love true and pure to last all of time
Kisses and moonlight and your hand in mine
A quiet romantic who knows she’s na├»ve
Patiently waiting for her prince to see
Will never stop wishing ‘til her dying day
A single red rose for her lonely grave

***

Nowhere Train

I am on a train going nowhere
Leading to my own magic place
Wishing you were coming with me
Freedom bound this life erased
Searching for that piece of perfect
Come let’s set the world on fire
Choosing only to move forward
Living golden every hour
I’m on a train heading skyward
Where heaven meets a sky of blue
Angel wings made to embrace us
My darling I will wait for you
Kisses sweet and everlasting
I want to be your only love
And will wait for you forever
An ever-after of our own
***

Letting Go of Me

I held your hand in mine
You fade into the night
Your light once shining bright
Dimmed when the angels came
I have known all along
How badly I failed you
If only I knew how
I would have reclaimed you
I hold your hand in mine
The girl inside of me
Wishing for something else
Forever is unseen
What changed to let you go?
Fiercely freed from my grasp
I never let you know
How dearly you mattered
I held your hand in mine
I wish I was stronger
A girl frozen in time
Needing you for longer
Your sad eyes remind me
Rise from your ashes strewn
Of who I used to be
A girl that I once knew
Shatter this hollow shell
See who I have become
Every trace of you
Vanquished but never done
I hold your hand in mine
Weary I let you rest
Forgive me for my sins
The voices in my head
I remember this girl
Her smile a gift to life
Tragically unloved
You once were my whole world
