You

You bring 
joy to the morning 
a feeling of ease
in a dark storm 
You bleed 
into the mourning 
covering up 
my scarred arms
you turn 
pain into warning 
prodding and turning
my heart back home

Cascades

Don't be afraid 
Of cascades 
They'll come 
in Ribbons of color 
Shimmering, shuddering 
Small rivers running 
Blue In the veins 

Don't be afraid 
Of promenades 
Of glittering shame
It'll come
In skies and in wonder 
disguising and thundering 
Small storms tumbling
Red in the veins 

Don't be afraid
Of cascades
They'll come 
In currents of color
Crying and wondering
Small rivers running
Blue in the veins

Arrow

A quiver full of arrows
chosen for you
I was the sharpest,
I flew the fastest
Into your heart 
To join the rest of your wounds

46 stitches

46 stitches 
Is not enough 
to fix this heart 
grant me relief 
grant me restart 
hope and belief 
just torn apart 

it was trust in me 
it was all of my doing
what's built on me
becomes my undoing

I kicked 
I screamed 
I fought relentlessly 
And finally 
Finally 
You've broken me

Walking on Air

There are not enough words
To engage your attention
To measure and gauge 
This constant affliction 
All that I've done 
It plays in my head
Feeds in a loop
What I haven't said 
Turns into desire
Call it attraction
The bed of a man
Grants me distraction

So grant me relief 
I know something's wrong
Not that I feel it, 
All feelings gone
But I see it within me 
Internal bleeding 
Silent and subtle
All that I'm needing
So I hold my head up 
I hold it together
Take the edge off
Adapt to the weather
Breath and keep breathing
Try hard to care 
And going to work 


Is walking on air

Free Fall

Free fall 
Into the emptiness 
Respond 
to the brokenness 
Reach out 
And touch this 
Make my bed 
In the valley 
of pilgrims regress 

Steady, rushing river 
Ease my tangled mind
Smooth my restless wounds 
And would you wash me within?
No new road 
Could grant me restart
No amount of rain
Could cleanse this heart.

Trust

Come on 
Will you trust me? 
Let go of all doubting 
Jump off of that empty bridge 
Into my direction 

Come on 
Don't you know me? 
I know you completely 
Step off of that cliff 
Into my perfection

Come on
Don't you trust me? 
It hurts that you just don't 
Jump off of that lonely ledge 
Into my affection
