On My Way

We all want somebody to love
Somebody to hold
Somebody to lie beside
Because the nights are cold

But will the degradation
To our baser instincts
Consume our souls
Confuse the common urge
For something we’ve never observed

Don’t let me go
Till I take my final breath
Then I swear I’ll set you free
Don’t leave me here without you
Though you can stay without me

I don’t want just
Another heartbeat beside me.
Familiar hope only your scent gives me
Just give me this life
Then I swear I’ll be on my way.

We all want somebody to love
Somebody to hold
Somebody to lie beside
Because our lives can be cold.

Rumination 15

     No one tells you how bright the darkest corners of your mind can be. How sweetly that voice whispers lies and doubts into your ear.
     If they were dark, you would never venture into them again. They're enticing, bright and warm, because they're drawing all of the light and warmth out of you.
     The colder and darker you feel, the more light and warmth you try to generate, until you just can't anymore.
     You need more for the same high.
     The universe may be infinite; you are not.
     But you are strong, you are loved, and you are not alone. So many of us are right there with you, making more light as it is taken. Maybe one day we'll make more than the imbalance can pull.

Stay good and keep transmitting.

Human Plight

I don't know where happiness lies
In this human plight
I just know there must be
Something better in this life

Have I earned the right to know
Earned the right to say
Or is this just another dream
Is this just another play

I'm sitting on the edge of today
But I haven't earned the right to stay
I'm not part of this
I never was

I'm just here to show
At least someone cared
That someone was holding on
To all of the moments shared

Do I take a humble leave
Or do I keep holding on
Hoping that I break through
To what potential we had when this began

My patience is waning
Though this is nothing new
How long can I keep waiting
Before I give up on you?

I will never know where happiness
Lies in this human life
I just know there must be
Something better for which we flight.
