The Cellars Of Your Heart

I stayed put, you moved on

With not a backward glance,

Its cold and dark down here

Hearing your merry dance

 

I'm in limbo now, forgotten

My spirit unable to restart

Trapped and left for dead

In the cellars of your heart

 

This place has other ghosts

Chains clanking like mine

Brooding sadly about how

You must be doing so fine

 

We're so near yet so far ...

Sermons of A Turnip Farmer

Somewhere out there just before the horizon ends
Sits a turnip farmer all alone,

 


Talking about how the 7 deadly sins are stitched into every fabric, every Fibre of the universe
The worms stuffing their faces with greed and vegetable, stop to listen to him intently
As do the turnips, the soil, the nothingness and  even a prophet or two,


He talks and talks, that's all he does
Abou...

Long distance Love

Days pass way too fast

It's hard to invision, that we'll last

Running onwards, aimlessly

Without allowing our truths, to set us free

 

When will we gain control?

Stop plodding on too slow?

Not one of us really knows,

We just continue with the flow

 

I dream of the day, they set us free

Finally able to live the way, we want to be

Just me and you for eternity

Numb

I'm sitting here, trapped, frozen in time

Head imploding, finally losing my mind

Nowhere to run, bound and confined

To the prison within, my unconscious mind.

Free-Falling

I’m losing my mind.

Don’t you understand?

I’m desperately reaching out for your hand.

Don’t leave me hanging, slipping, falling…

down into the endless abyss of darkness,

Never destined to land.

 

You’ve saved me once before,

But this time there are no safety ropes.

I’m free-falling, plummeting, going down…

My only hope Is for you to save me now.

 

I’m losing my ...

limbo

Here I am again.

Lost in the same world of limbo that I always get trapped in,

Oceans of mystery below me,

Plants growing underneath me,

Stars shooting above me,

I have been stuck in this oblivion for what has seems like decades,

Ideas and thoughts looping around and around inside this tiny head of mine,

Nothing seems realistic anymore yet it does not feel like a fantasy eithe...

Unmoving

Changing seasons,
unstoppable ticking time,
none willing to stop, yet
I freeze in time it seems.

In Limbo

She’s lost here somewhere,
Lost in limbo,
In these dark woods
Where we dare not go.
But I must find her
And bring her home.
She doesn’t belong here
Amongst the ravenous crows.

The moonlight spears
Like shards of blue glass
Through the thick canopy,
Piercing the black grass.
The trees block me
But I have a promise to keep
And I’ll push on through;
Miles to go before...

OLD HAMMER DIVINE

 

Old Hammer Divine

My anxiety is like an ambush predator.

WHAM! I’m fucked...

...fight back!

 

It’s fucked.

 

Would you manage a year in my head?

Would you?

Could you?

Should you?

 

I think you should...

 

...if you’re man enough then inbox me.

Into my head you shall go...

 

A mirror image of my town.

Shame it’s not Be...

Gray Earth

Gray Earth and gray sky

Eternity in limbo

Lost souls in peril

 

 

 

 

My husband Scott once again recorded the audio version for me.
