Follow your North

___

I look at you, you look not at me
But at the same forbidden
Fruit of the tree

It’s funny how your eyes linger,
Steal those glances
Like we’re none the wiser

Follow your North
Stay out of the South
Fix your compass
Oh, don’t be uncouth

Ache

___

And I can’t even breathe
because I know how it feels to break

And it’s not fulfilling
to be on the whole side of the lake

Want so much to run,
but is that really something you can take?

Because right here, right now,
is a reality we can’t fake

Questions unanswered that even
a night’s sleep can not unshake

Fools are those who believe
that love is a piece of cake

Make It So

___

Heave high, heave low
No matter what
Make it so

That the line is cut not
As it reacheth
Around the bow

Heave high, heave low
No matter what
Make it so

That the curve will not
Rot into miserable
Low

___

Time’s so fast
Can’t have a blast

Where has the past
Gone, gone, gone

Stare at the wall
Let the rain fall
When will he call
Back, back, back

Stepped on a heart
Killed with a dart
Everything’s falling
Apart, part, part

___

___

Shadows lurking,
All poised for attack

You better get ready,
Watch your back

Calculated movements,
Watchful eyes

Wolf in sheep’s clothing,
Woven with lies

___

You have born unto me these feelings long forgotten
And somehow I’m grateful that thus I write often

You have evoked unto me the sleeping passion
You got me thinking which is the real version

You have unleased within me the darkness hidden
It’s making me laugh albeit it’s oh so forbidden

You have spurred me into running the race faster
Into a path that unfortunately you can never even enter

You have pushed me over the edge
But I won’t sink low, this I pledge.

Balance

___

When you brace yourself for something you dread,
Is it wisdom or pessimism that is being fed?
Are you building walls tall enough to protect,
Or are they ever so tall that none could intersect?

When you wear your heart proudly on your sleeve,
Is it passion or are you simply being too naive?
Are you so blinded that only you can’t see the cards?
Are you sure it’s not a game directed by a heartless bard?

Foreseen

___

“Don’t pursue.” That’s what they said
“I wont.” I say “I won’t be misled”
“This is what you’ll get” that’s what they warned
But I am above everything, rules be damned

As stubborn as stubborn fools could get
Who dug their traps, then jumped on their net
Who are you to know what can’t be done
Now, look at all that could not be undone

Living on precarious edges and tips
One swoosh and down, down you’ll slip
Two whoops and plop your innards will splat
You’re crushed before your eyelashes bat

Contingency

___

It’s because I care
That I will spare
This risky dare
To be laid bare

There’s nothing more
To be left in store
It hurts my core
That we’ll never soar

I hope you’ll forgive
I don’t want to leave
But it’s much to heave
With naught to receive

Bid one last Hi
But I’ll be by
It’s just.. It’s always I
Who is left to die

But not this time
I betcha ten dimes
Before the break chimes
I’d have cut all ties

___

Contingency (n.) – An event that may occur but that is not likely or intended

The Story of Fish

___

I’m feeding the wrong fishes
I’m tired of matching the rhymes
Set me free from the many leashes
Show me how to travel in time

The fish is growing bigger and wide
& so is the gap between me and I
Me, who needs to push you aside
& I, who wants to live in a lie

Next the fish devours me whole
I failed to notice I lost control

…But in truth I did
And I actually wished
That the fish would head
To a heart that’d mend
