Imagine a tall cup.
Now imagine that cup being empty.
Except for one thing, that is.
At the far bottom is a small black mass.
It writhes and moves.
Constantly trying to get out.
Stretching and grasping.
You feel it in your soul.
Trying to consume the now empty glass.
For you see, this cup used to be full.
Filled with emotions both good and bad.
Those emotions kept the blackness down.
Trapped at the bottom with no way out.
When the emotions were expelled,
It was supposed to keep you safe.
No one can hurt you if you simply don’t feel.
However, emptying your emotional cup,
Freed the blackness at the bottom.
It’s now able to breathe and grow.
Reaching for the edges.
Once the blackness is free,
You are doomed.
Once it is free,
There will be no more light.

It happened again,
I fell for your game.
When will I learn,
You don’t feel the same?

But you know my heart,
And which strings to pull.
You seem to enjoy,
Making me a fool.

Flashing that smile,
And well written emails.
My wavering resolve,
Is destined to fail.

You are the predator,
My heart the prey.
You always know,
Just what to say.

Who would’ve guessed,
You’d be the one.
To awaken my soul,
Tormenting it for fun.

So this is me,
Walking away.
Washing my hands,
No reason to stay.

Wanting to feel anger,
Only crying of heartache.
Dying to walk away,
But not a step you can take.

Every beat a crushing blow,
Every thought a knife to the chest.
Needing to scream out the pain,
Forcing him to confess.

This is what he’s done,
This is what he’s caused.
Awakening the soul,
Exposing the flaws.

Twisting the blade,
Till you can’t take anymore.
Only wrenching it again,
Pain like none before.

Something snaps inside,
Darkness takes control.
Protecting your heart,
Altering your soul.

Feels like being possessed,
But you don’t want to fight.
It’s so much better,
Then love’s painful bite.

Hope and Ice

When the ice has melted,
And emotions are raw.
They came into your life,
And broke down the wall.

You were safe for so long,
No chance of getting hurt.
Till you saw those eyes,
And your heart became alert.

Words of deep passion,
Kisses so intense.
Hope starts to rise,
You have no defense.

They took you to the clouds,
The scars start to mend.
And that’s when they say,
You can only be friends.

Now there’s tears in the pillow,
Where no one can see.
The pain is unbearable,
And you long to be free.

The walls must go back up,
Putting your heart back in ice.
But with every meeting,
You pay a deep price.

So for now you are friends,
But looking in those eyes,
You secretly hope,
They’ll take you back to the skies.

Professed to be different,
Gentle and kind.
Should have known,
You had lied.

It was my last chance,
To save my heart.
You promised light,
And delivered dark.

Warning bells sounded,
To my deafened ears.
I didn’t want to shed,
Any more tears.

But fall they did,
Filled with pain.
You broke my heart,
I’m back in chains.

Dooming my soul,
Why can’t you see?
Love was the hope,
For setting me free.

Pain and anger,
A warm embrace.
Taking me back,
To my darker place.

Hurt From Afar

I didn’t want to feel,
No, not again.
Walls torn down,
With no defense.

Sad part is,
You don’t even know.
The beating of my heart,
Is what you control.

Save me! Love me!
Show me how!
See me please,
Hold me now.

All kept inside,
Screaming from within.
That way you’ll be,
At least my friend.

Pain is nothing,
Bones will mend.
But this hurt from afar,
Will never end.

But when I think,
I’m cold as ice.
You say hello,
I lose the fight.

Thoughts of you,
Keep me in check.
But also cause me,
To do things I regret.

I’m down a dark path,
Out of control.
You’re the only one,
Who can save my soul.

But chasing the rabbit,
Leads far away.
Probably too far,
For even you to save.

In this pit,
Of pain and release.
You remain my flame,
An inner peace.

Save me! Love me!
Show me how!
Take my hand,
Please pull me out.

Morning Rush

The sky pushes away night’s blackness to allow the colors of morning to show.
Lonely runway strips sit waiting as early chilled air blows.

Rows of grey, four-engine giants slowly come to life.
One by one gaining speed to defy gravity and take flight.

Now gone, the deafening silence is broken by a distant train’s call.
Its cries devoured by the greatest predators of all.

Turbine engines roar in the distance, rolling out of the dark.
The sound resonates deep in the soul causing a beat to skip in every heart.

Sleek bodies prowl on the runway, forming perfect lines.
Beautifully aerodynamic wings impatiently tensed as the metal shines.

Engines increase power causing the solitary pulse watching to rise.
In an instantaneous movement the first shoots forward and flies high.

The others follow suit filling the morning sky with their glory.
And that’s the end of my story.
