You Are The Different Kind
So what, if they don’t understand
The way you think differently,
or the way your soul expands
so that you feel things deeply.
There’s those dreams, remember?
Grow them in soil, set them in stone.
Stand amongst the stars again
so that you never feel alone.
Don’t you dare collapse now.
I feel those trembling knees
as you inhale – the way the world
forgot how to breathe.
An Empire For You
Who will stop your castles from falling? When will you realise who I am? You push past me in the rush of life. Just stop for a moment. Stop and breathe. Listen to the sound in your battered lungs. I dare you to find your universe - in my eyes. All you ever wanted was a little beauty to call your own. To quench your thirst. But you're tired and want to go home. You're weeping now - because. You. Can't. Find. Home. I said I would build you an empire, didn't I? There may be thieves and there'll always be liars wearing the disguise of story-tellers and lovers - but it'll be worth it when you feel your heart ALIVE - like passionate fires. I COULD LOVE YOU like all of the lost skies that bowed down against the ground before they were allowed to rise.
Red Dressed Soul
You travel down the spiral staircase that
leads you into the depths of your soul.
Where there are no lanterns,
Why do you do this to yourself?
You’re slipping away
But you want to stay
And all your ghosts and shadows
Trail after you wherever you go.
Untouchable and fading,
where has your thunder gone?
The crashing lightning,
the explosions, the fights and
Your out-of-tune songs.
But I won’t forget you.
You were the red dressed soul
with a heart full of passion,
A belly full of laughter.
You kept your love in your pockets
and emotions in your heart.
Words were scribbles under your skin
and naturally flowed from your fingers
You were a traveller, a dreamer
A wanderer, barefoot and hair-free
stealing chimneys with yellow feelings
Searching for the green.
I will find you,
Wherever you go.
