The year is ending

The year is ending.
Slowly days replay and readjust their meaning
into shadows of better and worse self.
I try to reject the possibilities
of my own wrong doing,
and yet, know
I shall repeat them if I do.
.
(Chorus)
What to do?
Who shall I be?
Have I truly forgiven?
Have I been forgiven?
Is compassion real?
Does anyone hear… me?
Can I change?
Will I ?
And you…  You in the mirror.  You who the prayer is for.
You who I have struggled to give name to.
You who keeps me up at night.
You who has laughed at my weakness.
You who has grieved with the only tears I ee.
You who has tried to forget…
tried to forget.
Oh how I have tried to forget.
And in my forgetting, I cast shadows.
 
And now I sit with the rain tapping on the window of a broken life.
Bright pieces still cherished by those who know and believe.
Cellophane tape sticking out of corners and begging
in one way or another for forgiveness of sins
realized, intended and not intended. 
Suffering with clarity, the life I have made.
What is this life I have made?
(chorus)

Dream

Faces blur
motion ceases
moon grows
stars fall
and wishes turn
to dust
as you walk by
as you move through
the world

and they call you an unreachable
dream
unattainable
irresistible
impossible

but all it seems
to me
is an opportunity to follow
a chance to change my
direction
and a chance
to work out the fraction
of my broken hearts
into a moment
to great to be
yet
to be great

So faces go ahead an blur
motion stop on a dime
I got all the time
in the world
I got what no one else can see
I got what every one passes by
I
got
me
wait and see

::stomp my feet::
::get up feel a beat::
::put one foot forward::
::put the next one
forward::

I got this

a moment
fear holds
notions turn
doubt surfaces
and words fail
dried ink
as you walk by
as you move through
my world

and they call you an unreachable
dream
but… then…

I take your hand

I got this
So faces go ahead an blur
motion stop on a dime
I got all the time
in the world
I got what no one else can see
I got what every passer by
forgets
regrets
bleeds but
doesn’t give back

I
got you
and
a dream
has
me

 

 

 

Here it goes again

((have a melody, but not sure this is ready – wanted to post for your thoughts anyway))

.

Here it goes again

your voice echoes down the hall

lingering out of reach

and beyond the light of it all

.

I scream but no words

make a sound

scattering on the floor

like broken glass on the ground

.

my hand brushes shadow

like a ghost in the mist

smoke filtering

from between your lips

.

I can’t stand this

.

I must be invisible

I must be unseeable

I must be invisible

a ghost in the heart

of your world

.

So

I write your name in the stars

I tether the wind where you are

I gather tears to make it rain

I build castles out of daisy chins

but I am invisible

.

(aside)

This side

this side is difficult

this side is difficult to embrace

This side

This side is hard

this side is harder to chase

when all the things I dreamed

are less than what they seemed

still I  try…

But

Here it goes again…
