Deer MarkingsOnce upon a midnight dreary,More Like This
Had to much vodka,
and couldn't see clearly.
Ran over a deer, that poor poor buck.
For in my grill his antlers were stuck.
I tried to push out this big steer
But my hand did slip inside its rear.
The cops came and ambulance too.
But no one would come near
the creepy guy that smelled like poo.

Won't you lace your hand with mine?
I want to feel your warmth,
To be able to be close to you,
Skin to skin as heart to heart,
Won't you look into my eyes?
Stare down at only me,
So I can stare deeply into you,
Your deep eyes which I adore,
This, which brings desire,
Makes my heart race,
To be with you,
To be only yours,
Won't you lace your hand with mine?
It pains me when you look away,
It hurts to think of you,
This thing, which burdens my heart,
Won't you accept me?
To miss you so dearly,
When you could only be an illusion,
A trick of my own heart,
From an anonymous note,
A confession from the wind,
A heart's truth found,
A fickle question answered,
Your sign of acceptance,
Draw my lips in,
So won't you lace your hand with mine?
And seal this with a kiss?
UnrequitedHere I sit just lost in my mindMore Like This
wondering just what it would be like
To hold you, to touch you
to know you
You'd never see me in a crowded room
would never even catch your eye
But here I am
with a head full of dreams
and a heart full of emotion
That I'll just never understand
If I could only reach out
and brush this hand upon your flesh
Would you feel it?
would you even notice I'm alive?
Or would you simply feel a flutter
and nothing more?
Even if I could permeate a radiant glow
You wouldn't notice
I'd remain in these shadows
Solitaire in my mournful cries
My tears unnoticed
My heart a shameless relic
No, you'd never feel this love
You'd never know this tide of
I'll keep it in my bottle
I'll keep it hidden safe away
And in the shadows remain

It seems like everything I do
And every song I hear
Brings to my mind these thoughts of you
It's killing me, my dear.
Slowly my heart is dying of
This wound from unrequited love.
I've thought a lot of things lately
Seems none of them were right
I lie in bed with broken heart
No sleep will come tonight.
Because my heart is dying of
This wound from unrequited love.
I finally told you how I feel
With hopes that it was best.
And somewhere deep inside of me
Thought maybe you'd say yes.
But no, my heart is dying of
This would from unrequited love.
Thought that your rejection would
Hurt less than keeping in me
Feelings that ate me from within
And secret fantasies.
Thought wrong: My heart is dying of
This wound from unrequited love.
Thought secrets were harder than losses
Turns out that I was wrong.
For this rejection hurts far more
Never felt a pain so strong.
The pain my heart is dying of
This wound from unrequited love
WhereWhere are you when I need you mostMore Like This
I'm a reasonably strong man
no need for me to boast
but when i need your help
you never come
I would wait and wait all night long
I just wanted an answer
a simple hello
Answer the things I wanted to know
But years have gone by and no word from you
Not even a glint on the mornings dew.
I don't need you anymore
I've made up my mind
to hell with your answers
alone, I will be fine
But one last thing before i end this prayer
Call me collect if my answers you want to hear
listen close and hold you in suspense
just call just call just call...
Oh God, please call me
I want to hang up on you
Hang up on all the things I've been through
Hang up on life and living this way
hang up on you twice
to keep my anger at bay
I don't need you anymore I've made a new friend
the devil and I will dance till the end.
UnknownI shave my headMore Like This
to feel the cleansing.
and run my fingers over every crease
stare in the mirror
at the thing I've become
knowing this constant beckoning will never cease
sickened by the sight
of this "age" that I've become
and at these pills i take for relief
I feel in my bones
that my soul has always known
that this body of mine is on lease
I move through out the day
every minute I decay
but i do what i can beyond my belief
And Death keeps me company
and keeps from me Lucky
because he knows that i am a thief
But i take what i can
for i am just a man
that tries to go thru life to find peace
Ask thyselfAre the shadows creepingMore Like This
Is the darkness cold
Churning stomach icing
Cowardly, not bold?
Are your thoughts a torment
Is there doubt and fear
Do you dread tomorrow
Approaching ever near?
Are your fears now threatening
Is your courage weak
Do you doubt your reason
Is solace what you seek?
Are your hopes dissolving
Is resolve now truly spent
Perhaps threads of life now rotting
Wondering where life went?
Are you hoping now for pity
Is your life really that frail
Do you see your headstone
Carved in sorry tale?
Are your tears now starting
Is it time to weep
Is your mental journey backward
Is self-pity what you seek?
Then stop, I say, take hold of life,
You will not get one more.
It's time to start the fight,
Let the devil lose the war!
Love isCan love be measuredMore Like This
In a look
In a deed
Or in bounteous thoughts
Sprung fresh from a seed.
Can love be treasured
To banish all doubt
As joyous you weep.
Will love last forever
Throw open love's doors
In heart-glowing song.
Or is love an illusion
To shatter the dream
That you both did make.
Can love be saved
With a plea
Or live with the pain
Through endless bleak years.
Love is like life
Or to lose
Both tenuous and frail
These thoughts beg peruse.
Love is a river
Surging or peaceful
Will not bend to your will.
love like concrete.we were broken,More Like This
but we saw the cracks,
and filled them in
with love and roses and wallpaper paste.
we used glue
and still it would not stick.
so we made love.
we made love like concrete.
we fed the gaps with concrete,
we fed the gaps with our love.
we made it from all the lumps
and bumps of friendship,
from the anger of our child-hood
from the scars across our thighs.
we made love.
we made love like concrete,
thick and grey and
we made love for our own sake..
we made love to fix us up,
we made it hard like
and we fixed each other
['we made love like my daddy makes concrete. thick and fast and grey. we made love to heal ourselves. drip by bloody drip.']

maybe she made you feel special

each memory. each word. each fucking lie

i'm not a zombie, but i feel like one;
it's simply moving forward to get away.
every step i take is a step away from you,
and i know i need this. i need Him. i need something.
and it's the weight that pulls me down,
thoughts that can't stop bubbling up in
dreams, or maybe they're nightmares at this point.
i don't know. don't ask me why you matter,
you're nothing special, just a fool i used to know.

you were proud of me.
Even now, I can't imagine why.
Holding fast to reality,
from the bottom
we can only climb.
Perhaps it was pity
clouding your judgment;
guilt to keep expectations
Then you always did
though the burden was never yours to hold.
I was a troubled soul
for so many reasons,
none of which was from a lack of your grace.
So shine it down upon my face,
because I need it now
more than ever.
You were my angel in disguise,
the fairest I ever knew.
I loved you then
and I love now,
so rest in peace
Yellow Brick RoadWhen I think of all these eyes have seenMore Like This
I know they've seen too much
Tin boxes built on whiskey bottles
With little voices all sewn shut
Angry tempers flare inside
Domestic violence erupts
But step outside
Only to find
the city eagerly awaits
Where merciless streets of urban decay
Exploit and devour the weak
Even when there's nothing to give
There's always something to take
Falling victim to the environment
Less you find an escape
Ending up in working class America
(Where the ends don't always meet)
Discovering the one you love
Shows colors of deceit
Finding dark places of the mind
Where you collapse in defeat
Until the day you rise again
Ready for something more
For these are the trials of our lives
But who dictates what's in store?
We can't choose how we start
Or even where we go
All we can really do
is keep following that yellow brick road.
