Permit Me

live-461731_960_720

The devil paid me a visit

Whispered I was beautiful 

Told me I was the one

Then he opened my heart

Swallowed my soul

He spit out my bones

That seed of self-doubt

Hangs on like a long, final note

That rancid shadow of misery

Permit me to tell you

That I’ve had enough

Permit me to introduce myself

I am raging glory

And I own this moment

Silhouette of Your Soul

nature-3108052_960_720

I laughed at the moon yesterday as it hid behind a cloud

And I stood on our mountain; broken by the wind

The silhouette of your soul

Slipped into my dreams

As I pondered painfully

What’s next

It was so much like you

Yet, it was nothing at all

The crow of my dimension

Led to my descent

Down that long lonely path

I searched for redemption

But all I found

Was a silhouette of your soul

The Dubious One

Dubious

A great way

My state of mind

Holes and hills decay

Travel down the line

Dubious

A system of splendor

Doubtful

A state of surrender

Question the answers

That sway

In the cobwebs of sanity

Forlorn

As I stretch the zenith

Dubious

No more

Dubious

Cloaked in Madness

Don’t believe for a moment

That you can show me goodbye

We are a formidable team

Like a wolf and the night

There is no peace

If there is no chaos

And there is no sanity

That isn’t cloaked in madness

So fashion your force

With my bittersweet words

And spew the venom

Of a million lines blurred

Don’t worry sweetheart

I’ll save you a spot

Your love and limbs in my grasp

Forsake me you will not

Deny the Outcome

There once was a woman

With a dark and lovely soul

Her eyes were like diamonds

That perfection was never shown

She cascaded her life

Like a million post-it notes

Denying her inkblot

With inspirational quotes

Her heart was a minefield

Of broken shattered dreams

Her lips the shrapnel

Of all that fell between

‘There is no saving me,’ she said

As she turned another page

And patched her thoughts with distance

While she got on with her day

Synchronize Yourself

Synchronize your mind

You can do it

Get it in order

Like flying birds and planes

Or bugs on the waves

Make everything happen

At exactly the same time

In exactly the same way

Determination

Strength

Tenacity

You can do it

Write that book

Sing that song

Build that house

Take that trip

Quit that job

Follow your heart

Follow that dream

The world is yours.
