Two Hands

Every moment I would share

If you would let me in

Loving isn’t easy when

You feel the need to win

See a side you try to hide

I know you are afraid

Love is not a game of cards

But here my heart is laid

I don’t know the things you’ve seen

Or why you shy away

Know that if I earn your trust

You’ll pull me close one day

Lover be yourself and do

Not fear I am a friend

Hand in hand I’m here right now

And will be till the end

11:46

When sitting on a platform for the train that didn’t come

Alone as all the travellers abandoning their hope

I kept my faith in time and hoped the tables might yet turn

A safety net is nothing more than knotted bits of rope

Salvation came my way arrived 11:46

I climbed aboard not caring what the destination be

The journey worth the wait so unexpectedly arrived

I travelled into you a new exciting place to be

So catch the train or miss the bus but never lose the faith

The journey will be awesome if you just allow the ride

And everything will be if you allow yourself a breath

There really isn’t anything you can’t take in your stride

I’m sitting on a platform but no longer wait alone

For you are here and you is where I choose to make my home

Abhorrent

Eternal sunshine of your mind has petrified my heart

Mistook your heat for warmth but I am fifty in your shade

The kiln in which you fire the brick that builds the wall so high

Has dried my soul like leather and my edges have been frayed

Your optimism hits me like a hammer to the chest

I’m on my knees and praying the relentless can be stopped

Oblivious of who you are, you don’t know what you lack

You think that I have fallen but I feel like I’ve been dropped

The positivity you have is wielded like knife

And up against my chest incises cut so paper thin

You operate on me to change perception of my self

As if your brutal strength will force acceptance from within

Pragmatic in my nature, I’m a threat to be destroyed

Abhorrent of a vacuum yet your love would make me void

Same:Difference

Everyday is different

Everyday the same

Everyday my difference

Others seek to blame

One day I may falter

One day standing tall

One day this will alter

Barriers can fall

Everyone is special

Everyone unique

Everyone has questions

Answers that we seek

We can make a difference

We are much the same

We ensure that different

Isn’t cause for shame

Voice

There’s never any certainty; we’re always left unsure

But you might be tomorrow, so I’m opening the door.

The now that we are sharing feels so perfect at this time

And happy ever after would be reason for my rhyme.

But if we aren’t the everything and you decide to quit

I wanted you to know how much I’ve relished every bit.

You’ve taught me many things and I would hope you’ve learned from me

For when I said I love you I was saying you are free.

So if you stay forever I will know it was a choice

And if you say you love me back I’ll trust the words you voice

Duel

Was taken for a ride I knew I’d like it

Unspeakable the things that have been done

And if your mind was opened you could try it

I fear you’re not a liberated one

So highly strung I sense that you might snap it

Restrained and yet you’re not a bondage fan

I look into your eyes and I can see it

Depravity it permeates this man

Release yourself I don’t know why you fight it

The urge is just a part of who you are

Submit and you will be allowed to bite it

No taste that can’t be found in this bazaar

Desire and lust can be a heady mixture

You look like you can handle what’s to come

My gauntlet’s thrown and so we have a fixture

Your pistol’s cocked so I can draw my gun
