Wind-up ToyYou're wounded.Wind-up Toy in Free Verse More Like This
But you can't bandage your insides.
But we act like it's alright.
Finger on the hair trigger.
You keep trying.
I keep trying.
But we get nowhere.
We both end up face down.
And we don't say a sound.
I'm a lake,
And you're so shallow.
So you decide to swim in me.
I'm a toy,
And you're a boy.
Just wind me up and leave.
ForeverTrace infinity with your finger.Forever in Free Verse More Like This
Follow the contours of forever.
Feel the ebb and flow of a timeless state.
Dance on the edge of a tomorrow that never comes.
Around and around, with valleys and peaks.
Highs and lows.
Ever flowing forward, but not always flowing straight.
Sometimes crossing over yesterday, haunting us with the past,
Sometime passing over tomorrow, enchanting us with visions of a better morning.
Ever flowing, sometime furiously, like a hurricane of eons,
Sometimes slowly, with the forever of now.
Now is but a moment.
A moment is forever.
Mortality is the realm of no one.
Eternity is for all.
The BindMy mind is starting to dwell and wanderThe Bind in Free Verse More Like This
On things I should not ponder
My past, it haunts me in my dreams,
The nightmare starts and it won't leave.
Curl up in the cold and darkness
Blankets protect me, be my harness,
It begins with a shadow that comes for us all,
Someone catch me, for I will surely fall,
And I will wake from my slumber
And my head will spin and I will wonder
If when I woke, if you woke too,
If there's a bond between me and you,
If I cry, do you weep?
When I get weary, do you sleep?
If I am broken and come undone
Will you mend me and say I am "the one"
The one with whom you'll always stay
Your heart will always
