Insomnia 04:37
Something in the veins, through my heart, lures me. I'm paralyzed. Choices are nonexistent. And I wish for release, for release, so release me. Take me away, take my hand and release me into your world. Take me away, take my hand and release me into your world. Enough time is enough. I'm yours, I surrender. Take me away, take my hand and release me into your world. Take me away, take my hand and release me into your world. written 05/25/2011

In the middle of the vast emptiness of space. where do I go to escape the questions? A riddle that has not been solved in time I must ask the question. Disappear, I disappear when the words just drain me out. I travel with no emotions. Just a frozen shell of my ways is what remains. Can't think of a reason no to be wanted anymore so I... Disappear, I disappear when the words just drain me out. Disappear, I disappear when the words just drain me out. No need for me here after all these years I'll let the words drain me out.

Witchcraft 04:16
Every day she looks upon her shelf. Within the frames she sees the face of her son. Just the one. Seven years of the same routine. All the money's gone to her saints and she prays for her end... With all the reasons, through all the seasons, for all the money in the world. Another story she reads during a stormy night. But the fire down below her won't ignite. Another candle should do the trick and now the ashes in a cloud of smoke and fire... he rises. "Mother dear" "What brings you here?" "Why do you fear to have a life to call your own?" "Not alone, with no excuses." "I will still be here when you return." "When you return in many years when you return." With all the reasons, through all the seasons, for all the money in the world.

Passage 03:15
5.
Realize that your rainbow lacks a pot full of dreams. And the search that is driving you mad let it go let it free. Let it fly, fly don't let it die. Out of touch with your sanity in a trance of reality. Don't go, don't go, don't go, don't let it die. As far as you can reach but your will is weak sickly and beat will is weak sickly and beated to the ground. Don't confuse the truth for the clues and refuse to open and see with your eyes. Realize that your rainbow lacks a pot full of dreams. Let it free let it fly don't let it die. Out of touch with your sanity in a trance of reality. Don't go, don't go, don't go, don't let it die. Don't go, don't go, don't go, don't let it die.

In Fragments 04:46
Do we share the same, same pain or instead share a smile? Or a touch? Just enough to feel like a king for a day, a long day. But instead I crumble. Pulling on the edge a tearing only causes more regrets. My reflection easily exposes this rain in a bottle with my sorrows and joy. A wish for a kiss, for desired lips of fire burning me. It's hard to see, hard to breathe but gasping for more. More love, more lies, and in the end I crumble. Only in fragments of me I escape, shut down, your hands you are pulling on the edge a tearing only causes more regrets. My reflection easily exposes this rain in a bottle with my sorrows and joy. Only in fragments of me I escape, shut down, your hands you are...

Not Expected 04:08
There's no food today I'm sorry. It was taken by the hooded ones from the other camp. I promised this would be the last time. Time to avenge what was done to mom and dad. With that look I see that you disagree with me but I must leave. With that look I see that you disagree and it kills me but this is for you and me. Now that a challenge has been accepted, fully rested, heading out in darkness I'm not expected. Swiftly the adrenaline that rushes in animalistically is taking over me. Kerosene, the last drop of Kerosene I ignite and face to face the final words I recite: With that look I see that you disagree with me but this fire will cleanse you and me. With that look I see that you disagree with me but my family deserves this...

Blooming from an orchid of the morning of first light, first life, first sight of innocence, innocence, a history now that's it's innocently aware of destiny. First steps taken a while to flow. Flow like water flows through it all. No experience, no serious goals. Just a snowflake caught in a storm. A new world trickles down a waterfall in motion crystals of youth. In motion, forming crystals of youth. Cloudy is a world where seeds begin to grow and the horizon no longer old. Running like a tempest, breaking through the divide in the horizon a new life opens up. Innocence, innocence, a history now that's it's innocently aware of destiny... ...now that's it's innocently aware of destiny.

Nocturnally 02:54

Every single day I watch the sunrise, hear the birds sing not a single note for me. It takes a special kind of patience for all the time I spend alone pondering upon the sun. I think about all the "can it be's," possibilities, and different outcomes; variations of "how come's." It takes special concentration to remain below it all, above it all. And I continue to rewind, reminisce on what I find, and the sun, it smiles at me so I smile back. All the do's and don'ts lie on a scale, the tipping point: an emotional betrayal. It takes special determination to decide a right or wrong when the choice comes along. I think about all the butterflies, and lullabies the fluttering performs. A symphony is born. It takes a special kind of force to erase this paradise. And I continue to rewind, reminisce on what I find, and the sun, it smiles at me so I smile back.
