Second-Hand Faith

She gives me her faded fantasies and second-hand faith Not full at all   We can never be this close again No matter how hard we try more hope more wishes more lies but no more sad, sick goodbyes…   and not another sharp corner not another surprise I won’t let it happen again Not […]

Morning Mist

Once upon a gentle tide I chanced upon a morning mist The only place I’ve ever known and my heart sleeps beneath the waves…   Something hides beneath the shore Something lost and something found Drowning deep in a watery grave.

Swimming Home

Trapped within my own Hollow skin My kind are calling Calling Calling Out to me To take me Slowly swimming home But I can’t go Caged beneath this flesh That isn’t my own   Trapped within Another’s skin Waiting to be me again Fly free again Swim between the waves Swimming slowly home…

Stillborn, moonshine Don’t look back Soft and silent Buried underground   Gentle, starlight Say goodnight   Lost and all alone…   Faeries gather all around Never a house but forever a home Deep within the faerie hill…

You whisper still forgotten memories lost in time   Silent promises never spoken   Impossible wishes Lost amidst the stars   …I wish you wouldn’t whisper anything at all Because it makes me forget Where I really am and how I got here and how I can’t go back and all those things I can’t […]

Garden of Children

There is a place where you can go a place where moonlight softly glows a place where love never dies a place where there are no goodbyes…   Welcome to the moonlit garden where child’s play never withers hearts never harden and innocence lasts forever   Welcome to the garden of children where souls never […]
