Love is stronger than fear in the end

Waiting in the anxious mind
Unkind demons
call me from the depths
audio hallucinations have crept
into my hearts beatings
and my breath is shallow
I have become a ghost pallid
and cold and old before my time
the only way to exorcise these demons
is a hug from a friend
and knowing love is stronger than fear in the end.

The promise

When the rain cries for me
would you follow my story?
It’s not ordinary.

I trap them in my fire, in my hell
I broke into her house just to tell her
I loved her soul to bones
I just can’t leave her alone
old Father Time was sleeping in his arm chair
but I found we had traded places
the woman with many faces
and many time lines
my crime is I wasn’t able
To put all my cards on the table
I am the life you never lived
the man you couldn’t forgive
for leaving you alone on your marble throne.

New Year’s Eve with friends

Holding hands and mumbling the words of auld lang syne.
life is having a great time
with great friends that are mine
talking chatting shit jokes and the blues
but remembering that this year is history and we can choose
to see the new year in
and this our new year to win
in the face of life’s chase
and we must grasp it with haste
