Unnoticed his shadow moves across the sidewalk and fades into the night
Sweaty palms and shaky nerves
He clings to the fabric of his jacket
The only thing larger than his fears are the holes in the wall.
The thought made his fists sting
He sits down in the same seat every Saturday
His eyes stare across the counter
She never looks up
At least not at him
Everyone's talking but he doe...

She belongs to no one
Daughter of the night
Constellations fall upon her skin
Like tattoos across her chest
May the whole sky sink to the ground below
Engulf her in evening blues
Walking down a path of green she believes where trees grow there is peace
Her hands caress the lush scenery like a warm hello.
She doesn't mind the cold mud stuck beneath her feet as closes her eyes and than...

You brought back to life the passion inside me
That burning desire to live
That wild streak
My heart was meant to beat
Life is best when it's happening outside four walls
I haven't been myself in so long
Drained of all hope and then you found me
Now here we are
You drive a little faster
Music bounces through the speakers
I stretch out in the backseat
Feeling at home

Tangled in the branches
In awe of the view
My goal was to meet with the sky
Longing to be closer to where I find comfort
How much longer will I wander alone, remaining hidden from your sight?
I've strayed so far that my footprints have faded into the soil.
The light used to guide me
Now it's disappeared behind dark clouds
It seems like so long ago when I used to sit in anticipated s...

Know that all you feel will one day have purpose
Your tears will not go to waste
What is meant to happen will
Life is not a race but a journey
Do what you must in this moment to get through
Rehearse that song over and over again until you find the courage
Believe those words to be the truth
All is not as lost as ...

You're the baddest
Wrapped in leather
Real deal knock-off
Smokin' on my corner
Fingertips frozen to the bone
No money just a backup plan
That must be me
You're falling again
Lost in hopeless despair.
Once a Lover
Won't you come in?
Pick me up where you left off
Three years ago
You left without Goodbye.

Last night I was gifted with a beautiful dream.
I was barefoot, standing on loose boards and chipped paint looking out at a dead field from an old farmhouse.
My childhood home.
On most nights the main character in all my nightmares is me, running from several nameless demons
I'm wide awake when I close my eyes, yet disoriented enough to bury myself alive in the trenches.
I can still hea...

Most casualties occur in silence
Those moments when we are locked away inside ourselves, consumed by the sound of nothing at all.
We settle into a routine of constantly going, always busying ourselves.
We burry the things we don't want to see underneath it all, after so long we soon forget the sound of our own voice.
Take a look outside yourself and watch as each of us drowns in denial.

It's been forty eight hours
Apparently sleep is for the weak.
My chest aches
Heavy with anxiety.
In the darkness I lay still
Unable to find peace,
I let my mind wander.
I think of you.
Yes, I do know
I understand very well
Because I'm just some girl who's in love with the band.
I've got it bad.
I shared with you what I adored the most and somehow you managed to ma...

Forty miles south
Any sign of that town is well behind me
Hidden in a cloud of dirt
I hit the gas
I fade into the afternoon
A restless woman with a truck.
Gloomy skies and headlights
I realize there's no going back
All the pleading in the world wouldn't make me turn around
I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into
Maybe I'll race the moon and send up a prayer or two

In all her madness
She stood still.
The longing desire for wandering had paused as she found contentment where she was.
Even if that lasted only briefly it was something worth noting.
She called adventure by it's name, but this one time she silenced her voice and welcomed the quiet.
Envious of her own heartbeat she'd take on endless activities just to feel it pound through her ...
