Keep the darkness outside, keep your thoughts close and clear.
Pick up on these words and follow these fears
When you’re armed with your ideas, they’ll all disappear
Pick up on these words and follow these fears.

Welcome. This is just a simple website where I pour all of my thoughts, failures, loves, losses and experiences into words. I hope you enjoy, or even become inspired.

Thanks.

“Keep At The Ending”

[Verse]
When this started we held it careful
I refused to believe this thing
You brought all of the signs of lasting
Longer than past northern flings
You remind me of better years now
When life was such smooth sailing
But I know which way this tide turns
The shore, it’s safe for me.

[Chorus]
Row, through a river of your tears to where you think I should be
I know it’s not the way you wanted me, the way you want to be
I felt the pull of attraction, I felt the reason strong.
It feels just like my past did, that’s why I’m moving along

[Verse]
I pulled back to watch you unravel
Spilling your heart on the floor
I never promised to gather your pieces
You always threw out more
This clutter,
This mess,
It’s way beyond my skill
Throwing all your knives at once won’t make a single kill.

[Chorus]
Row, through a river of your tears to where you think I should be
I know it’s not the way you wanted me, the way you want to be
I felt the pull of attraction, I felt the reason strong.
It feels just like my past did, that’s why I’m moving along.

[Bridge]
You never give in
Kept your boat just off the shore
Telling me jump, into the storm

You never give in
Outstretched arms, they do implore
That they reach out for your oar
But the waves have reached the shore
They’ll turn their backs to you once more.

“Jump; And Never Ascend”

“Jump; And Never Ascend”

[Verse 1]
She’s a perfect storm of smiles,
Of faces worth my while
But in the end she needs
Something that I can’t be
I’m holding onto moments
That always end in bed
I never wanted progress,
Didn’t care where this led

So follow me round, so follow me down…

[Chorus]
I felt the rush of hearts, as it became much more
I let the words walk in, I let them past this door.
My security is weakened, I’ve left my walls down low
I simply can’t provide, this love you’ll never know.

[Verse]
Smile brightly for me, tell me everything
Of how you know it’s ending, or just how we proceed
I feel the stop, these brakes are locked,
We’re skidding towards the wall
I’m taking blame for this one, I shouldn’t let you fall.

So, follow me round!
I’ve been down this road
So follow me down!
This trails gone cold.

[Chorus]
I felt the rush of hearts, as it became much more
I let the words walk in, I let them past this door.
My security is weakened, I’ve left my walls down low
I simply can’t provide, this love you’ll never know.

I felt the same damn feeling, a loving heart exposed.
But I could never, be the one who closed.
Just move along so easy, just treat it as your dream
I’ll fade away to nothing, a distant memory.

“From Asheville, To Sarasota: In Motion”
I’m falling faster than a comet
She knocked me out of orbit,
I was wandering around this system
Just waiting to be absorbed
I never had direction, just fuel and motivation
I never knew I was missing something so deep and interesting.

She said, “I like the way you roll through, pretending you’re unstoppable.
But I’ve seen the way you move, and you know that it’s improbable.
You’re gonna have to stop and enjoy the space around you.
So hover for a second baby, I’m the star that’s gonna shine on you.
I’ll illuminate your path, so you can find the destination
I’ll be the light for your life, so you’re never left guessing.
I’ll follow through and be with you until we’re both cold and gasping
I’ll make the galaxies pass by so fast you’ll never know we’re dying.
Cause in the end, you’re the one I chose to flow into infinity
We know that there’s a finite end to the lives that we are leading.

“Feathers”

“Feathers”

Disappear so slowly into everything I’m missing
Reminiscing of things that have passed me
And you know that I can’t let this go so easily.
Can you tell me you’re missing moments with ease?
If I spend a second on this could we appease the masses
Could we make this the classiest,
And take it past the feeling of dread
Creeping up when you’re alone in the bed.

This battle was lost the day I took off
No matter the cost, we looked better on paper

I’m looking to climb, disregarding the height
Propelled upward with featherweight flight
Never looking down, so the fall won’t surprise me
Enjoying descents, an untimely grounding
Oh, how did you fall, with spectacular landing
With your legs to the ground and your eyes to the sky
But the love that we found isn’t beaming tonight.

I feel the weight of tomorrow
The feeling that failures the sorrow
A reason to give in to all expectations
Separate lovers, and lives in a nation.

So look ahead to the brightness of being free
To the overwhelming ability to keep us afloat
To every heart, in every boat
To every lover, that lost one too
To the former loved, that left you
I’ve played each role to various degree
I’ve played with hearts, and you played me
So heavy, the ending, so much for the feather
So much for your love, this weightless endeavor.

“Where I’ve Roamed Pt I: Awkward”

“Where I’ve Roamed Pt I: Awkward”

 

She shot her eyes straight towards the ground, around the waves, across the bay
I thought I’d say another word, but she’d ignore it anyway.
I’ve got the time, cause I’m in line
For nothing interesting
My mind is fucking racing,
I’m losing interest quickly
She said, “I think you’re lying, it could never be this easy.”

I’m not the one you’ve seen before
No need to second guess me
No reason to mislead you
No need for you to test me

Figured you out in glances
But all my time you’re wasting
So take my words just as they are
No motive means no guessing
Wear your heart right on your sleeve

This time it’s something different, buzzed as the sound rose to a roar
Three drinks and first date dancing, I never thought she’d slur the words.
Inhibition down, she’s grabbing on
To any hand that keeps her form from hitting ground
She’s spinning round, I’ve lost my balance
But never fell, she’s up and running
“I’ve got to think you’ll leave me, so why are we still moving?
I can’t refuse the moments, and you just seek to use me.
I’m fucking fragile, I can’t rule my world this loosely.”

It’s not the way it’s always been
You’re thinking back to promises
No need to second guess me
No reason for you to test me

And in the end we found, that color was indeed inbound
Of purple waves, and emerald gaze to bring me back to ground
I’ll have to end this game, cause I’m way too overmatched now
I have to mend my ways cause you’ve opened up the hatch now
Just can’t avert the gaze that brings down all my fences
Just over a month to stay, you think you can convince this?

“Where I Roam Pt III. Fleur De Lis”

“Where I Roam Pt III. Fleur De Lis”

I lifted up from the ground, every hope, care and fear
Floating off from all the negatives, every reason in my ear
She said, “You’re gonna leave me fallen, cold and all alone”
With a smile that could’ve heated every day that I’d be gone.

I didn’t realize at the moment,
That all gravity had shifted
Every color palette flipped
My heart made it’s way back to my chest
I’d laid it out, and laid you down, you caught a case of feelings yet.
I said, “I’ll keep you warm long as you let me,
Bring heat with words and snaps and charm.

Hold Violet, Emerald,
Crimson, this beauty
Mix feelings, colors
Moments, stir gently.
Grant me serenity.

Rolling along at speeds above the posted, every silken word
You sing along to every rhythm, keep me hanging on their word
“Deep in my bones I can feel you, take me back to a time only we knew”
Let the day fade into obscurity while I take you back to our ending

I didn’t realize at the moment.
That the weather pattern lifted
Every leaf palette has shifted
Let your sleeve burn to your chest
You’d laid it all out on the line, though your words were uncertain
She said, “I’ve never thought that love was more than a choice that I made
I didn’t think I’d feel as if my heart could grow these legs.
You’ve let it loose to run, so lead me where you wish.
Just keep it safe from harm, cause I can’t take much more of this.”

Hold Violet, Emerald,
Crimson, this beauty
Mix feelings, colors
Moments, stir gently.
Grant me serenity.

“To Litchfield, All Of The Pieces ( feat. You Freestyle ’05)”

“To Litchfield, All Of The Pieces (You Freestyle ’05)”

I’ve never felt so wrong
Never felt so gone.
To you its funny,
But to them, I’m alone.
You get what you paid for
And I asked for change
But never so much for you to feel strange
The worst part is, its not you Im worried about
Its the best friend that left me
The day you set off.
No nothing,
No commune,
No phoning
No telling
She left me just feeling,
Like a first class blackmailing
A headline maker, a career killer
The cheat on your wife, got caught with her killer
In a mall, or a hotel, or somewhere too common
Common like how we’d end up arguing
I’m sure now whats gone now
Is not what I’m missing
Whats missing is two years of
faithful reminiscing
Of times of a smile not painted by pills
When walls put up could be mounted with hills
Though it always took time for me to build them
To make it, to scale it, to renew those feelings.
I don’t know if I can end this, I think it can go on,
Ill add as I live, we’ll call it my forever poem
The always, the always, the one that will always
Keep times spent with love, outside the dark hallways
Of my mind, of your mind, and anyone else
To hold you forever would only cause chances
To burn out or fade out, whichever’s your preference
Slow fade or quick burns, one shot regrets
In the meantime we’ll falter
We’ll keep them at bay
Til days when I’m leaving
And you’re there to stay
You’re falling, you’ve fallen and I’m gone away.
What is it exactly that makes you that way?
I know its redundant when I ask that question
Blame me the most, I’m the answer you’re missing
I said my goodbyes, if that’s what you’re wanting
I followed you down until you stopped to flaunt them
My problems
My failures
And every success
Reminding me always
I’m no longer the chest
[Excuse me, I meant the reason]

I meant the fucking season
I’m fall when you’re the springtime
Leaving faster, landing hard
I’m intending to beat these words into your heart
Remember December, you left me just breathing
The cold air so lonely while you were retreating
So close and so far, but just brought to light
Of the time that you spent here, though just out of sight
And it’s been years since we spoke
But I still get the feeling
That it’s all just the same
And nothings worth changing
And nothing ever changes
No fighting, no feelings
No loving, we’re reeling
It’s not like it once was,
We’ve reached our ceiling
The potential is long gone
Let’s coast to the ending.
