Its Funny...
Its funny how time slips like sand,
and lifes situations get out of hand.
The sands heat up and turn to glass,
and now the problems just wont pass.
And alone in the glass you'll find me,
And I'll pray you'll be the diamond to cut me free.
But I'll hold my breath because theres not much here,
I'll say my words as a whisper in your ear.
I cant say much before the air runs thin,
And Death picks up the Violin.
He plays Sad Romance as I decay,
We could've stopped this yesterday.
But we stayed petty and turned our backs,
And now the seal is stamped with wax.
I've signed my name and sealed my fate,
And anxiously awaited this very day.
I promised you the world and now it's yours,
Hopefully this will settle the score.
My eyes are faded and my dreams are dead,
And millions of words were left unsaid.
Isn't it funny how time slipped like sand,
And our undying love got dealt deaths hand...

I'm runnin out of time and words to say to make sure today will be the day,
When I can finally come out and say that I dont want anything more than Daisy.
And I know that it sounds absurd and strange and I know that I probably seem deranged,
But let me tell you I'm not insane and trust me I'm not crazy.
Its kinda like a code and a metaphor for something that I know I want more,
than the city air I long to breathe although it gets real Hazy.
And things aren't easy and flowing quick and sometimes It feels like Im a stick,
In the mud or in the sand but Its not my fault I get kinda shady.
Things weigh down in and on my mind and I think about it all the time,
And It sounds real weak but my heart always feels real shaky.
But let me tell you once and for all even though I try to be tough and strong,
Nothing in the world would be better than holding my Daisy.

Final Dreams
When We Hit that Final Night,
The Night When Our Head Hits the Pillow for the Final Time,
Who Knows What Happens After That?
Just Think,
The Next Morning,
Everyone Who We Lived For Wakes Up
-Possibly Without Their One True Love-
And What of Us?
Nothing Breaks My Heart more than knowing One Day,
I'll leave Everything I care about Behind me.
The Thought of Being Able to Have One Moment in Time Repeat and Replay,
It's all I want.
I want to be Able to Live in the Perfect Moment Without Thinking
-Hey, Im Growing up-
"This Night could Last Forever"
And I wish That was True.
The Thought of Growing Older and Loosing this all Haunts me Every Day.
Everything that Happened 5 minutes ago is a Memory,
Never to be Repeated.
Never to Be Relived...
Seconds to Minutes long,
Feel like Days.
Just Maybe,
On that Final Night,
When We Lay Our Heads Down for the Last Time,
Maybe Some Synapses Fire Up,
Maybe Some Triggers are Pulled,
And Maybe We Dream Our Fondest Memories.

Eternal Lovers
Your Beautiful Eyes,
Like Windows into My own Soul,
For when I Look at you,
I See all my hopes and dreams.
I See everything I aspire to be,
And I see the Person who can make me Reach those Goals.
And I Feel,
And I Feel so large yet,
So Small.
You Immerse me in Love that Ive never felt.
And I wonder,
But Ive learned to Live with it,
And Embrace it,
Because it makes me Get out of Bed each Morning.
I stay up Late to Hear your Voice as Much as Possible,
Before the Darkness Pervades my Dreams,
And my Fear of Loosing you is Played out Once more,
Like the Night Before,
And the Night Before,
And the Night Before,
And the Night Before,
And the Night Before....
But I ignore my Dreams,
For I know you Wont allow yourself to Leave like that.
You know exactly how to make me Smile,
-Not an Easy Task,
And know how to make me Feel Weak,
When all I want to be for you is Strong.
You can Disarm me with a single Glance,
Or Empower me with Just a touch.
Your voice is like a harmonic Melody,

Because Bonnie Loved Clyde
"I'll follow you," said Bonnie,
"Through fire, water, hell."
"I'll come with you," cried Bonnie,
"Through freedom and jail cell."
"I'll be with you," said Bonnie,
"Though by sunrise we'll both have died."
All this Bonnie said proudly,
Because Bonnie truly loved Clyde.
"The journey will be dangerous,"
Said Clyde to her one day.
"You are such a tiny woman,
You might not make it all the way."
But Bonnie loaded up her gun,
And hopped on for the ride.
All this Bonnie did surely,
Because Bonnie surely loved Clyde.
They were pursued through states,
Almost half the entire land,
And robbed quite a few banks.
Their work was skillfully planned.
Then one day as they were driving,
A cop pulled up from behind.
They took out their automatics,
And laughed as Bonnie cried.
She cried not for her own life,
But because her Clyde had died.
And soon she would follow him,
Because Bonnie always loved Clyde.
They weren't buried as they wanted,
Not buried side by side.
But wherever they are, they're together.

Jai - Jackalope Dreamweaver Sculpture by LuxDani Jai - Jackalope Dreamweaver Sculpture :iconluxdani:LuxDani 538 67
the bright scarlet egg of dawn
nests in my head.
when it is time, it will crack my
skull like a shell
and be born.
I have a witch's fingers and a
witch's eyes, rough pewter lenses
through which I see the world.
I have sabotaged their crops,
I have plagued their children,
I have eaten their livestock in the night
   (so they say)
and I hear the whispers in the streets.
they will be willing to kill
for their conviction, though
I am not willing to die for it.
I am no longer human.
I've been branded
with an ugly mark
of fear and desperation,
one terse syllable that cuts
like a switch.
a thin reddish line splits the horizon;
I set my ribs on hinges
so they can get to my heart.
a damp wooden platform,
a rough rope necklace—
I am not a Spartan
carried home on his shield.
this is not an honourable death.

This is how women walk away.
In broken heels
and secondhand jackets,
cigarette smoke in their hair
and no kiss goodbye.
Do not mock.
It is what it should be.
A girl in a car,
hanging a u-turn
on a glistening, empty street.
Her body is a road to be traveled.
A shipwreck to be plundered.
She does not know how she got here,
and she does not care.
And it does not matter.
This is how women smile.
Knowing, secretive,
though her cheeks are sore.
Though the wind
is blowing right through her clothes.
Though there is no good music
on the radio, and no food
in the refrigerator.
This is just an impression.
An idea of nirvana.
A slice of real, live ecstasy.
But do not give it a name.
Just show it, wear it like
designer jeans.
Tight against the skin.
She is ivory, she is easy,
and it is not love.
It is something better,
fermenting at the
backs of her knees.
Flooring her.
Bleeding from her fingerprints.
It is a devastation,
seven ways from Sunday,
but that is how she likes it.
It cannot hurt
