Just some poems I made.  The songs are like song lyrics or something, as they would bode well for a song.  Only problem is they are missing music. 



 Poems

 Field of Weeds:

The hollow darkness.  Coldness surrounds.
Feel the nothing consume the thinking.
The Balance is undone.

Emotion guides your thought
Knowledge guides your action
And a balance kept will bring peace

But Emotion destroys the balance.  Unable to restore it.  There is no peace.

And yet, it is not sadness or happiness or anger or anything.  It is nothing.  And it's Dark.

The field of weeds becomes hidden in the ever consuming mist.

Mist hides weeds

A Star, brighter than all
The daylight breaks over the horizon

And with the day comes clarity.
Clouds of emotion disapear.

and comes Knowledge
Lo!  The weeds are flowers.

Sitting in the Swirling Mists

A dark gray mist consumes a path before it.
There are roads and branches
And some lead to black
Some lead to white
Some lead to gray
All lead to a place surrounded in fog

Unable to figure where they should go
And those who know have chosen bleak existences
Living until they die

Never knowing the reason, blindly they stumble.
Unsure of the very fabric of their existence
  unstable
  liable to lose their way in the fog
and give up at any moment
  and sit down and wait in the swirling mists
  waiting for the dawn to show the path

Vengeful Fire

Void


An empty state

An angry voice cries out
And fear grips

A path of destruction
Wrent by revenge
The state is filled with death

Incomeplete

There is a loss to balance

Death consumes the fire
And the burning eye grows dim
Fear lingers

Two Strings

The strings intertwined
a beat
flows along one
and flows in the other

A single string

A third string enters
tries to take the other
and fails
tries to become one with the other two
and fails
And leaves

A single string

A flaw
And tries to break a string
but fails
And tries again
and fails
but leaves a trail

A single string

A string divided
back into separate
cast apart by other strings
afraid of the flaw

Two strings

Separate and weaker
they degrade
but one feels beats before the other
And leaves the distant connection
To intertwine with other strings

Two strings

But one a weaker string
weak and dying
it flails
Attempts to find another string
and barely succeeds
by grasping onto other strings

A single string

Meets the other
to find the past unknown
Sees the other's strength
and finds a weakness unseen
doesn't say it
and they continue on their way

A single string

two separate strings
but now one vengeful of the other
betrayed
for the time to heal for the other
was so short
seemingly unsympathetic
a flaw to burn the other

A single string

Fire burning
eyes watching
Feeling anger towards the other
but echoed beats from the past
fueled by betrayal
and watered by ghosts
unable to decide

Crushing Depths

A rock sits
on the bottom

Liquid
A surrounding cold
And dark, invisible it lies
in the lightless world

Tiny lights flashing
slowly winking
on, off, on
Depth crushing the light

Vents of heat
the world provides lightless life
though they quickly grow dead
as the Earth shifts

A rock rising
pushed upwards by the shifting Earth
drifting on a bubble, then
falls to the ground
In the cold, gray ash

^ to the top ^

Clouded Sky

A smog sits
over the gloomy sky
with the powerful Sun
hidden behind the Clouds

A building
Churning out the daily tar
in Unison, blocking out the Sun

Dark clouds
Gathering overhead
Though unseen through the ungodly fog
A drop falls to Earth

the Heavens unleash their cleansing flood
to clear the Sky of Gray
and ebb in due time

and the Sun shines through
giving light to the inhabitants below
and they rejoice
by going back to work

Well in a Field

Sitting at the desk
pencils slowly scribbling
and pens rolling
a soft clatter
and thud
an object falls to the floor

a glance shows a pencil
fallen off the desk
slowly picked up
barely noticing
the fiery gaze
and then feels the heat

looking at the source
the eye meets the void
a black well
set against a green hay field
with a white sky

drawn to know
to feel
the sense that pulls
falling into black
guided, tumbling
down and down
into the well
falling
losing
sense

the eye moves
as a head turns back to paper
and the utensil writes
its black lines

^ to the top ^

Vacant Stare

photos framed on walls
though often more intriguing
leave much to be desired
when the photos are windows
into the soul

A gaze trapped behind
a framed glass
removed and set free
to only be restrained
by a plastic wrap
for preservation

Though easily seen
for all to stare
a glossy sheen
denies a probing light

Vacant it appears
because light reflects on both sides of plastic

Staring Contest

Staring into a circle
A sphere of a deep hue
Vibrant brown, like watching two colors
of water, swirling clouds
of one into the other

And a deeper black
a second circle
almost indistinguishable from the first
colored sphere
though entirely separate in color
the second provides much more insight
though black, it is as transparent as glass
 

An eye that is void
stares into the window
feeling thoughts
and seeing feelings
Finds itself swamped with thoughts
Kept inside the house

A smile at the stare
and the conscious exits
Nothing but a mere staring contest

Songs (Lyrics)


Barless Cage

Trapped inside a barless cage.
There I was.
Kept from seeing, yet always knowing
What was outside

Break these bars in my mind
Destroy that which keeps me from you
Holding the key
there you stand
Unlock it and set me free

Here I stand
Waiting for you
An empty and soulless void

All around me dark

Break these bars in my mind
Destroy that which keeps me from you
Holding the key
there you stand
Unlock it and set me free

Though I know
it's not you
I cannot see the way.
What should I do

Break these bars in my mind
Destroy that which keeps me from you
Holding the key
there you stand
Unlock it and set me free

And there you stand
Holding the key
And I waiting
Inside my barless cage
Unlock it and set us free

Blinded by the Darkness

Somewhere

There lies a place inside me
There sits an empty feeling
What do I do
For I cannot see

Fill me up
Fill me up
There is a darkness surrounding
Fill me up
Fill me up
And be right here standing
To help me see the way

Alone and in the darkness
There is no light to guide me
what do I see
I see nothing before me

And with my blindness
I see nothing
What can I do
For a circle it becomes

Fill me up
Fill me up
There is a darkness surrounding
Fill me up
Fill me up
And be right here standing
To help me see the way

Help the darkness leave
Just be right here understanding
Knowing that I cannot see
But helping to find my own way

Look and Reach Up 

 Alone you stand in dark
A quiet solitude
Where did we go
And leave you there alone


Look up
Look up
And see the shining light
Reach up
Reach up
And take what's yours

it is
night


How can you feel the cold
We can not feel your heart
Explain to us
Which escapes us
And drop your poison dart


Look up
Look up
And see the shining light
Reach up
Reach up
And take what's yours

it is
bright


Here we stand together
and yet you still fall
hidden from our view
a device of self infliction
Why did you have to do it too

Look up
Look up
And see the shining light
Reach up
Reach up
And take what's ours

it is
sight

from our view
where have you gone
