Dear Truly Beloved Customer Care
I have a small problem with one of your wares
I’m not after a new one or a replacement spare
Just wondered if this one is not beyond repair
In Ninety-One you gave me this heart
Which really was awfully sweet
I wasn’t too smart, broke it apart
How I’ve tried to make it complete
Yet now I fear, after 23 years, it appears
I have cocked up it...

I see you lurking about
making him say
to lure me out.
I am being smart,
my broken heart.
to paint the sky.
Let the world know
you are really
not a nice guy.
You are a trickster
who makes girls cry
with your stupid lies.
My schooled soul
knows the truth
is an illusion,

I panicked today.
The reality of my mortality hit me.
I believe in reincarnation, this manifestation isn’t the end.
But the finality of my current reality,
stirs a new uneasiness in my soul.
I Panicked today.
How could my soul ever survive
without you by my side,
The custodian of my heart,
in new life torn apart,
incomplete, unable to be one.

Let me move to a new place,
Where none knows my name,
And I know they will start judging,
As Everyone is just the same.
But till then ,
Let me find a new love,
New memories to let go my pain,
You can take my hand,
And please ask me to dance in the rain.
I know our love would break,
Just like all other affairs I had,
Some would say I had no brains,
And I am the reason you are sad,

You didn't say it back,
But I can't take it back.

Today I learnt to cry alone,
Soon I’ll learn to live alone too..
Walking through the grass
Running on the fields
Climbing the mountains
You were always a shield...
Never imagined a life without you,
Neither in dreams we were away,
In laughter in tears I was with you,
I was with you each night each day,
From feeling of hope to thought to love,

And all at once
We revisted the site
Where the wounded lie
We examined their injuries
Doing our best to determine
If they were fatal
It requires a detached rationale
It laughs in the face of pure emotion
For life is smarter than you think
Forever your opponent
Even when pretending
To be a friend
For life brought me you

Forever ago may seem
like 20 years of gray,
but I live forever every day.
There is no escape.
It's not the passion I miss,
I keep that memory sealed
in a concrete kiss.
It's the lyrical
that went on months
before our egos
got in the way.
In the forever between
tears and heartbreak,
to find ourselves
and our destiny, here
on this pag...

Hair elastic bangles around a wrist
Notches carved into a bedpost
One size down a leather belt
Bathroom stall in the back bar
Live a lie but love a kiss
Short lived bliss
Sun rise and sun run
A wrap dress undone
No, I don't mind
You should know I don't mind
I do this all the time
Please don't ask me if I'm fine
Because a warm sip of fire that rests in the chest,
Is better ...

He is the blue earth
But with oceans too deep to explore
I am his sun
But he needs the warmth of my core to survive
- To thrive
I chase him right round infinitely
For he will only let my light shine
Half of the time

A shot of water cannot quench the thirst
Of the vast Sahara
A drizzle cannot cease the heat
Of a family home gone up in flames
And 1000 pages of penned out "I'm sorry"
Cannot change the way your eyes look right through me

She didn't use you
But you did have a use
You didn't lose her
But you tightened her noose
Too cowardly to step off your stool;
Not a lion,
She is but a cub
It's your call
behind that curtain,

I do not resemble a garden rose:
But I resemble every thorn
And the crimson I drag out of you when you try to pick me
Rivals the crimson I've spilled onto the petals
I do not resemble a white flag;
For I am not the peace you seek
I am a pistol you put to your temple willingly
But I'll be the one to pull your trigger
I do not resemble a castle;
But I do share the same grey walls

Home is where the heart is
And my heart beats with a constant ache to be home
But when you have no place to call home
Where does the heart reside?
Is it just an empty space?
Until you find a place
To call your own
Until you find an embrace
That makes you feel less alone
Until you find a face
That will call you to come home
Heal my ache...
Call me home.

I feel my mind slipping,
almost dangling from a cliff.
Obsession and love are different,
Yet similar with a twist.
You left me in the cold,
And so I left you behind.
Although it breaks my heart
this is my time to shine.
To fend for myself,
That was the first lesson,
A scared little girl,
With no direction.
Which way do I turn?

There you are beaming
at everyone you meet
keeping it together.
But, I see your soul scars...
It's enough to turn
most souls to dust.
But not us.
Diamonds are made from
coal under pressure.
Show your scars,
keep the faith,
and shine on.
