Demon Taunts

We all have demons that haunt us
An abuse
A mistake
A ripple effect
A risk you didn’t take
My demons are ones I can’t trust

Hiding in the darkest of shadows
In your eyes
Be unseen
A passive retreat
Hide what should not be seen
Love that still walks in the meadows

And then I questioned
The decision that I’d made
Though I knew the answer
Rode on the edge of a blade

The decision that I made
Rode on the edge of the blade

So I shrugged it off like it was a joke
And hid from it all behind blue smoke
And then I awoke
But It was too late
The loss was my fate
I let it slip away so easily
As if I meant nothing to me

We all have memories that taunt us
Cold chasm
In my heart
No looking back
Avoidance plays a part
For misguided precepts of trust

Slippery Slope

It’s a slippery slope to when you let your thoughts voice unbridled
There may be no turning back
No more given slack
For your many imperfections
On the attack
Invites an attack
There may well be no place left to retreat or to run and hide

You will never say you’re sorry

Did you want to open the can that’s so long been under pressure?
Is there ever really a good time
Admitting to a crime?
Staring back at your reflection
Repressing signs
Seen through the times
Questioning if there still remains an ability to endure

I will never say I’m sorry

You knew they could never love you but you knew they’d always try
Even though you said the same
Through with playing the game
Falling back to introspection
No one holds blame
With emotions lamed
The only hope is to still feel at least a little dignified

We’ll forever say we’re sorry

Temporary Fantasy

Sometimes I can’t help but thinking of the past
I try not to but it rears its head, time and time again

It’s lovely
It’s ugly
I’m regretful
I’m thankful

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder why life flies by so fast
Drifting out of sight like puddles absorbing the rain

I hesitate
I accelerate
It’s memorable
But I’m forgetful.

Sometimes my heart drifts away to scenes not meant to last
Floating on decisions from which I can never refrain.

Temporary fantasy?
Maybe a reality
Singing an age old song
Hope I don’t get it wrong

Flawed

Don’t for a minute think it would’ve been better
I’m flawed just as much as the rest of the world
I don’t want you to look into my eyes
I don’t want you to hear my bittersweet sighs
I don’t want you to think I’m anything more
Than someone who used to love you
And I can’t love you anymore

Don’t for a second wonder what it would be like
In a world where different decisions were made
I don’t want you to see behind the mask
I don’t want to hear the questions you would ask
I don’t want you to be able to see my flaws
And there are so many for you to see
But I want you to love me because

I dont know how to love you anymore
Not like I loved you before
I dont know how to love you anymore
But I still want you to love me
Just like you loved me before

Because I’m flawed
Just as much as the rest of the world

Waiting Anyway

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
Waiting anyway

In the dead of the night
I’m all alone with nothing but my thoughts
There’s no meaning to what’s left over
It’s gone forever and I know it
It’s gone forever
Move on
Easier said than done
I made my bed and now I lie in it
Find a tissue and cry in it
Then get over it
And move on
Easier said than done
When I’m waiting patiently
For the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
I’ll wait anyway

If there’s the slightest shred of hope
The smallest inkling of possibility
I have to wait and see
It could happen eventually
Throw a drowning man a rope

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Even though I know there’s no possibility
I still need to believe there’s a chance

Just the slightest chance

Maintain Radio Silence

Transmissions from another time
Conversations of the clandestine kind
Repercussions to bear in mind

Maintain radio silence

Actions always yield reactions
Destroying the states of satisfaction
Within the affected factions

Maintain Radio silence

For what’s ventured, nothing’s gained
Innocent bystanders feeling the pain
With trust and love turned to disdain

Maintain radio silence

Devotion must always be key
Differentiate between want and need
What is, is what was meant to be

Maintain radio silence

The Yesterday I Threw Away

I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away
I remember the friendship that grew into so much more
I remember how I felt when you opened the door
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember my deceit
I remember her emotional frailty
I remember your strength
I remember knowing you would carry on and survive
I remember thinking she would not
I remember the decision that had to be made
The yesterday I threw away
I remember turning left instead of right
I remember making love with you that night
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember the next morning
I remember saying goodbye to you
I remember how I felt when I closed the door
I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away
