Things got tangled up

When you really think about it, how does crossing your heart and swearing to God ever sound like a good Idea?

I mean you can hope to die if you want to but it's not like it's not gonna happen soon enough on it's own.

How did it come to this?

When did it happen that I let you turn "Love" into a dirty word?
I spit it out to spite you, and it turns all my words to vinegar on my lips.

A new kind of praying

Your soul knows the right moves
as the earth turns
heavy beneath dancing feet
treading lightly, spreading deep
within this fire
beneath the sea
that started this ball rolling
and called it me
inside of us all
the tides call
rising out of your bones
of what you believed
thinking nothing is real
yet how you feel
And God knows your never alone with your fear
the skin that holds you here
sinks in
and life becomes you
now and forever made to go together

we are listening

Your thoughts wash over me like a stones in water
Your silence cushioning my fall
what use of feathers in the ocean?
This wetness
slowly wearing my soul away.

The more you think the less you know

You don't have to understand
what Love is,

in order to feel it.

look me in the I

Putting on my brave face
isn't about hiding from you.

It's protection for the skin and bones.

My make up
Is all about fooling myself.

The clock is always dancing

let the time take you,
Hold you safely in the arms of change.

The heart keeps pace
one and....
one and...

nowhere to go

Dear God Please
Let it be enough

loosing the shadow

Begin with the body you have right now
the one that wears your soul
in order to touch this earth
As she breathes you in.

Rocket Science

You walked upon the earth,
but did you feel the breath that drowns you in your own sweet life?

humans are weird

Whats so snug about bugs in Rugs? sounds kinda creepy to me
And whats so soothing about the song how the baby falls from the tree-top cradle?

They told me
"Be the change you want to see in the world",

But I've seen enough change.
Maybe it's time to see the one thing that stays the same

What is Life?

You think seeing is believing,
but you have to feel it too.
You think you know,
Try not thinking at all.

the lightness of doing

In your light I found the source of darkness,
And in the heart of that darkness,
I found only light.
