Turn this page over See what’s behind In-between the creases I cannot hide You’ll see my reality The truth that I face The depth of my desires I dare not taste Each sweeter than honey These visions I explore Yet locked in silence Behind forbidden’s door
I keep trying to forget the past. To leave all the hurts buried deep on that old, empty road. The place where I was deserted, left choking on remorse. But everybody wants answers, and nobody understands that I can’t breathe. And when I’m forced back on that road, I can’t heal or even catch my breath. The air over there is stifling. And so many broken dreams are still dangling in the wind. I can’t keep reaching out, grasping hopelessly at those lifeless strands. So please, I’m begging you, let’s just leave the past to live where it died. Or else this life won’t be worth living at all.
About to embark On a journey A new way of life I think this beginning Is just what I need I have nothing left here Nothing holding me back So I will chase my dreams The sky is the limit Look out world Here I come!
I want to live Where the waves crash upon the shore To hear those tumultuous waves Pounding like pistons Smoothing every jagged rock With timeless precision Ever reminding me Of the silver linings Found in my afflictions For with every persistent beating Comes polished perfection
In the still of the night he came to me. Kneeling beside me, I could feel his feathery touch. He was memorizing my features, hoping I wouldn’t wake. I was only pretending to be asleep, enjoying the feel of his hand. Desperately wanting to reach out, but not daring to ruin the moment. And I wondered about all he was thinking, as he traced every crease on my face. I wanted to open my eyes and smile, as he placed warm kisses on my cheeks. But I dared not even open one eye, for I knew he’d then be gone.
