Walk on water

Walk on water,
Teach me to smile
And I will walk
A mile in your shoes.
Trust me when I say
I want to,
But I just can’t believe
In you.

Scars on my chest

The scars on my chest
Are not invisible.
Your eyes cannot see
What she did to me,
But that doesn’t mean
I never hurt.

The scars on my chest
Are deeper than I realized.
Even though I’ve moved on
The memory lingers on,
And a broken heart
Never fully heals.

The scars on my chest–
A bage of honor
I proudly wear,
Reminding me that under there
Is something that will
Never be hurt again.

The scars on my chest
Are a memory.
You helped me move ahead,
Proved that love is not dead.
A broken heart
Will never keep me down.

Smoke

In my lungs,
In the air,
This mirage
I call a life.
In my world,
I’ve no care.
In this dream,
Some other life.
In your head
I’ve been dead,
And perhaps
It’s for the best.
Smokey room,
I see you,
My last breath
Will slowly fade away.
In my lungs,
In the air,
The collapse
Of my old life.

This life

The smell of rotted meat,
Decaying flesh,
Tests the gag reflex.
The sight of millions
Of maggots all
Slowly squirming,
Lives insignificant
To me.

The sound of devil growls
Clawing, scratching,
Groaning, needing food.
The sight of an old friend,
Gone forever.
You wish you’d never known
This life.

The touch of tender love,
A long lost dream
Replaced by hunger.
The sight of mankind lost,
No direction
When the end of the world
Is born.

The taste of dread and fear,
Life on the run,
No such place called home.
The sights we once saw died;
Apocalypse.
You wish you’d never known
This life.

Strum

The dance of life
The light of day
The feeling in my head.
I could cry
One thousand times
I could live a dream.

One flick of the wrist
One sound is born
The blending of many notes.
I could live
And I could die
In this moment every day.

My life revolves
Around this movement
Repeated every day.
My heart dissolves,
My brain’s resolve
Is tested every day.

Music is what makes me
Wake up tomorrow,
Just as it was today.
Music will be
The death of me,
There is no better way.

The grind of life

Sometimes it takes years to realize,
Sometimes it can pass us by.
This is the end of everything.
This is the grind of life.

I wave goodbye, I say goodnight
I kiss you on the forehead.
My life’s a dream, you are a ghost,
The world, confined to my bed.

Insanity, reality,
It’s all really the same.
I drove you, and you drove me,
Who’s to say what is or not insane?

Sometimes it takes years to realize,
Sometimes it can pass us by.
This is the end of everything.
This is the grind of life.

Déjà vu

Memories of expectations
Lost inside your mind.
I’ve seen this song and dance,
I’ve lived this sad romance.

Memories of expectations
Slowly start to die.
I know where this road leads,
I live to be lonely.

The moment fades and comes again,
Repeat one million times.
Present and future seem so familiar,
But the past is just a dream.

Coming back to haunt me.
