Drawing hearts on windows in the long winter days,
writing love letters in the clouds with our fingertips.
Promises are like fingerprints, plans are like dust
he held onto her till she wept rainbows.
Footprints in the snow whispers, "I believe in you."
Cold hands, warm embraces and tired eyes,
handfuls of snow from snow covered cars.
Flying geese across frosted windows,
she held onto him till the stars fell away.
Falling snow cries, "I believe in you."
Frozen lakes and frosty roads,
i've been learning to try my whole life.
Caged birds sing about silhouettes of lovers
and dream of being swans.
I'd drag my heart across thin ice and sail ships
(to be by your side).
Holding onto each other
I will follow you into the dark as the stars fall away.
A heart like abandoned Christmas trees,
your love watches patiently the gardens changes.
All the trees are left broken and weeping.
Holding onto each other
following dreams as rainbows fall on shadows.
He held onto her memory till she wept rainbows,

Ghostly arms hold me;
when my tears take me back,
to where I used too play and hide alone.
Angelic hands come to me;
when the deathly shades of autumn,
bring back inner shades that I try my best to block out.
Ghostly fingers pull my hand back to blank paper,
you dont have to say it. I understand without words.
Whilst the sea sleeps
our eyes turn to the sky we share.
Just like before leaves brush;
two tears visibly invisible,
like the arms that were never there;
just like the hand that was never in mine,
and like the friend I never had before you appeared.
But always had in you. Whilst I played, hid and cried alone.
In the land of dreams where I was haunted,
I no longer fear to dream. Now that we have each other.
Tightrope of true loveTightrope of true love8 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Love is alive tonight in your distant sighs, giggles and cries.
I love her all the time and hate her the rest of the time.
Through the depths of life's and dreams loves and loses.
Heaven in the twilight of the sun, losing you against the light.
You're everything I am not.
True love is the noose that strangles the life out of your heart.
True love is the invisible blade that pokes the eyes out of your soul.
It took a long time but I dreamt that my true love was waiting for me,
at the other end of a tightrope. As I walked toward her tentatively trying
my hardest to not look down concentrating on keeping my balance.
Keeping my eye on the target trying to ignore the flames below
and the cries of the damned within them.
Trying to keep steady gripping onto my tightrope bar. Birds suddenly from out of nowhere flew around me. Struggling to keep balance as they swarm around me. Trying not to focus on their faces, the faces of all my ex's and love interests throughout my life. Some of the birds

The heart of a story is an ink stain
Stars fall into a dark well like coins,
My words run to you like inky tears.
Reflections remind us that although some wishes come true,
Not all things last and life can sometimes be rebuilt like houses of cards.
You made me dream I had wings,
Like a lone little white cloud in a clear blue sky,
I felt you always there and I chose to hide with you.
Skimming stones to re-explore the dreary universe's memory of endless days,
Unprepared flights on paper planes prepare us for credits, bills and paper hearts.
You made me love what I love
Like a lonely rainbow made of love after the rain,
You coloured in the blank canvas.
Climbing trees into escape hatches upon clouds puts me back together again,
Shedding my troubles like leaves upon an open armed cloud.
Throwing stars like coins in a fountain I caught a falling star,
Skimming stones replays the wishes that a heart full of stars no longer as to wish.
Reflections no longer cry alone, this cloud we're on allo

So sad our memory,
it's nothing to cry about.
Feeding the sky it's darkness till it consumes us,
how much can you take from me?
Watching you sleeping is pretty defeat,
you help me forget my dreams, making one of our own.
As brief as summer; hugging on our own,
memories are as natural as loneliness.
You make me too afraid to close my eyes.
Though you forget you're more asleep when awake,
we're so alike in our flaws. I struggle to sleep yet neither awake.
So ugly our memory,
you put on make up
to make believe your life pretty.
We make it up to share a piece of ugliness.
When you awoke you started walking,
falling out of the clouds and back into uneasy sleep.
Caressing a knife wrapping my arms around another life.
Nothing will stand in our way, turning ourselves inside out
trying to see things each others way.
Not knowing which way to turn, tried to see things your way.
Running into the emptiness where all roads meet,
wishing our roads had crossed sooner or never crossed at all.
