Angel

You enter in where eagles fear

My agent truth or dare

A shaken stirred and bottles spun

And we are god knows where

I’m taking down the lines behind

For you are at the front

And what is fair in loving wars

When none is innocent

So leave me in the lurching sea

Deserted by your shore

For better is the worst of times

When wisdom wants for more

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

Wood

The leaf didn’t fall

It stayed

The branch didn’t let

It go

The tree didn’t die

It lived

And you seem to love

Me so

If you are the tree

Am I

The leaf that you don’t

Let go

If you are the love

I need

Then hold me till I

I know

I’ve fallen but not

This time

I’m held and it feels

So good

So sturdy and safe

From harm

Knew that one day

You would
