There was a Time

There was a time when you cherished me
When you held me high above everyone else
When you worshiped me

There was a time when we were best friends
When we could talk for hours and still have more to say
When you loved me.

There was a time when I was only your's
When I saw, no one else
When did this end?

There you were, standing in my life
When you left, it was empty
When you left, I was happy

There was a time when we both had passion
When colors looked brighter and love was real
When the moon was so far we couldn't believe people could reach it

There was a time when we were younger
When none of these shenanigans went on
When we were innocent and looked at the stars

There was time, in a parking lot I walked through last week
When we laid on the ground and looked up
When we fell in love

You Think You Know

You can't fill empty spaces
that lay within my heart.
Can you hear the tears
that are tearing us apart?
You think you know me,
it's hard for me to tell.

You've broken my fingers,
I can't extend my hand.
If you want me to save you,
I won't do it on command.
You think you know me,
but your words aren't mine.

Your voice is a stranger,
who did you used to be?
If you look in the mirror,
you won't see me.
You think you know me,
we're too different to tell.

You used to hold me,
now I stand alone.
You think you've saved me
from the world I'm not shown.
You think you know me?
I don't even know who I am.


Silence is deafening,
but it's your voice I hear.
Glass keeps shattering,
you've made it so clear.
I keep fading,
you're pulling me away.

My eyes are blind,
but it's you I see.
Yet there's no one here,
no one's guiding me.
If you were here,
I know you'd take my hand.

A heart that's stopped,
is still alive.
But there's only a moment
left to survive.
My heart's still beating,
I know it's because of you.

God’s kin,

Wings lined with gold and trumpet-tongued

Sang through shattering clouds

As those few descended.

Down, but not too deep:

Immortality seeping into Mortaldom,

Silent, ashamed of the turmoil

That they rained on the heavens.

Eyes wet with bloody tears, as skin concealed wings,

Their bodies convulsing

As eternal fires began to shake their bones.

They fell to their tomorrows,

Forever-exiled into indeterminacy.
