we were an unsinkable ship,
built to sustain any injury
thrown our way, or so we said.
cast into the dark,
yet illuminated with infinite possibilities.
suddenly slipping through our fingers
the bitter cold quickly rushed in,
and the music played on.
while the chaos surrounded us
and the children were tucked safely in their bed,
the music played on.
while prayers were whispered,

soft rolling waves
brushing the shoreline
come hurling. warmth
that used to make
your blood boil makes you
from all that you
have felt and long to
feel. digging deep
into the sand
to push it away,
this was not part of
the plan; moving
to the city
to be part of the
scene, only to
find you’re constantly

Every moment to fear,
Forever holding back internal tears.

Where did the love go?
how did you and I go from bein...

Sometimes it's hard to see the light whenever you're surrounded by darkness
Have you ever felt the type of pain from looking in the mirror and not being able to recognize yourself?
Looking into your own eyes and at your own face and you say "Who is this?"

One day this boat will be too heavy to float,
And the captain will say his goodbyes.
A song so sad will be sung on that night,
As the crew greets their friendly demise.
I've run out of ways to diminish the waves you violently push towards my shore.
On my hands and knees. I beg, I say "please".
But the water is climbing up more.
So for all of the people a...
