Slip beneath the waves,
One comes after the other.
There’s no time to
gasp
for air.

Oh listen while I sing to thee,
My song is meant for thee alone,
My thought imparts it's melody,
And gives the soft impassioned tone.

I sing of joy, and see thy smile
That to the swelling note replies,
I sing of love and feel the while
The gaze of thy love-beaming eyes.

If thou wert far, my voice would die
In murmurs faint and sorrowing
If thou wert fake - in agony
My heart would break, I could not sing.

Then listen while I sing to thee,
My song is meant for thee alone,
And now that thou art near me
I pour a full impassioned tone.

For someone extra special ....xxxx

I met a man once, his name was Joe,
And he knew just what to say,
Though hope was all I asked him for,
It was something he could not give.

And something in the way he spoke,
Or perhaps the daydreams he’d deny,
Made me realize that life,
Was nothing but a lie.

People play such tragic games,
They yearn for what they cannot give,
And when at last they reach their goals,
They want some other reason to live.

I met a child once,
Her name untold.
Her eyes were shades of grey.
But when I looked deep in those eyes,
I knew she’d never stay.

And something in the way she spoke,
Or perhaps the starlight in my eyes,
Made me realize that life,
was nothing but a lie.

I need to breathe..
Take a break, take a break..
Running away, time goes fast
Seconds, minutes, hours, days.
No time at all in an endless universe.

I feel you gaze into my darkness,
Searching for life, gasping
How could something like love
Hurt me. Thundering above

Running from you into deep forests...
Never expected ...
That much silence...
in a place of billion lifeforms.
Silence. Laid to rest


The cycle of silence
