When you are feeling weak
The voice of courage
And the quiet calm
That wraps around you like a balm
You are more than you think
You're the light in my dark
My walk in the park
You give me that spark
To carry on when all is lost
No matter what the cost
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
the people walk past
Below me the ground,
Above me the clouds
If only they spoke ...
.. Those walls .. If only they spoke ...
To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound ..
To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found ..
To tell how those lies...
Keith Kenniff - Portraits Pt.2
Waking up, cold frosty morning
Sun peaking beyond the lid of cloud,
Golden orange glow, breathe,
It’s so much harder today than before.
Coffee, motorway, cars all aligned in a row.
Coming up for air...
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
You are lost
In faded colours of Summer's smile
The world we had now locks me out
I tear and strain in desperate style
You drift away, I scream and shout
My blood dries in the vein
True love just means real pain.
You are lost
Until moonbeams send you from the skies
from my body
But people keep staring at me oddly
It seems that you are forever destined to be there
Does anyone even care?
Do you think back on that night?
When things reached their height
I tried so hard to fight
You kept on until it was light
The tears fell like rain
I have to...
Yet still I walk alone
My heart heavy like a stone
Though the scars are deep
My heart's still yours to keep
As each night I weep
There's always a price to pay
So I paint on a smile and pretend to be gay
As long as I'm here, he'll stay away
I protected you today
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
that I know your there
I see you in the morning, a little bird that knows your there
I see you in my mirror, a face I wish to kiss
I see you in my dreams, your always there
I see you in my heart, beating inside of here
I see you everywhere
that is how I know.... I love you
This one word holds power over you, yet you know nothing of how it's spelled or even what it may refer to. All you know is how it feels. It's something you can never know, yet something you already do. You live this way, always longing for something you know you cannot have. You...
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
Everything’s red, white and blue
People line the streets as far as the eye can see
Some are sharing a party,
Others hope to glimpse the carriage
While others just want to hear the music
From the biggest party of the century
It’s 60 years on the throne
and the darkness is within
The sadness brings to bear the emotions of things
The numbing isolation that lack of touch brings
The incomparable sadness, the cool
Calm quiet of dreams
Deceived within the Devils hands
Parting like sheep from the herd
The aching surging and the...
As I lay back down to sleep
to dream of nature's virtue, sweet
to dream of her within my mind,
to dream of once upon a time
to dream the dream of
happy ever afters
to dream once more
of nature's laughter
to know it teases,
and in it's recourse
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
The crab’s in
And the money rests in my pocket
The sun goes down on the end of an era
For next year I won’t be here
I’m going on to pastures new
I’ll be watching my boys as they do
The job I’ve done for many years
I hope that the advice I’ve given
To the depths of the sea,
It matters not what you say,
For I am, and only, me.
Their mouths shut yet by chance,
I know I cannot be free.
I see the blood on my hands,
And, oh, the rage it brings me!
As I lay down her head,
Pale and motionless on my knees,
For eternal in bed,
beckons outside my window
Tapping with a glimpse of sunlight.
Promising warming rays
...I remember when first my heart skipped
And I would race out the door
With renewed anticipation
Only to find
Wind burned heart
My best fake honesty gets me in trouble every time
She finds it sweet
But then it's too late.
She's buying me drapes and underwear
Telling me what's cute and what's disgusting
Giving me nick names
Naming my plants, my fish, it.
Scented candles show up in strange...
each and every day
I miss you when the sun rises
I miss you when the sun goes back down
I miss you in the evenings , wish you were here
I miss you in my bed, holding me close there
I miss you in between the hours and the minutes
I miss you so tenderly much , I miss you so.
let me know if I am..
She wore her day with a smile
It was nothing for her to stop
And help someone smell the roses
Finding peace in imperfection
Drops of help in small doses
She carried out daily duties
Drawing strength from above
Fought through the afflictions...
In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold
I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams
You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...
She lies easy in my arms
This dimly moonlit night
Her body supple to my charms
She moans with such delight
I brush her hair back, find her neck
And kiss her softly there
My lips they trace her gentle curves
They make her arch and swear
While fingers brush and pinch and...
The feelings we share I ride like a wave,
The ups the downs the direction they make,
On a magic carpet that we made,
From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid
the vessel counts as much as the map,
The carriage awaits for us to step up,
I admit Its scary as it might...
come along with us?
Don’t know where we will go
Don’t know yet where we will stay
Could be this layby or that parking bay
One thing that is certain is that the time will be gay
We could sit by the sea
Supping a cup of tea
Or by the motorway
Just passing time of day
remnants of what it used to be. Soaked in a puddle on the concrete. Becoming the collective soul of one. Rather than individuals. The teardrop shapes became one. Only to be recycled, to become those quick little sky tears once again.
And they're wailing a hurting song
They cry out in pain with each breath that I take
And my hips and my knees sing along
My fingers pick out the melody
Each one plays a note of its own
My shoulders and ankles bang out the bass
Sending vibrations to each of my bones...
Longing for release
Dancing beneath a winters moon
Words are meaningless
Tonight I see the truth
The holes in the hopes
The never audible yes
Only attracted to the ropes
Another of life's sick tests
Injustice, it settles
Just like mist from a rain on a hot muggy...
listening silently, restlessly, the echoes of her hear beat that made her capable of living again.
She sat against the hard wooden floor - her body stiffed against the concrete wall- she knew it wasn't the end yet.
Every emotions that went through her heart, she understood it...
feel the nick of you lingering cool as winter's solstice,
feel the nick of you like a dagger cold upon the intangible grace of my skin.
such a sin it was to love you.
And when I am at last ushered into the chambers of sleep,
when I am blanketed in that dark array of...
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
Mucking up all my practice
And by now I think you'd know
The danger in your words
Aimed at the wrong heart
What is it you want from me?
Or don't you even know?
I dumped every drop I had left
Spilling it on the ground
The daily wonders...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness
A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness
To live within the social parenthesis
I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus.
The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder
I'm due to see a professional Visceral...
Each and Every Night
So much do I miss you that
Each and every night as I close my eyes
My heart sees your sparkling eyes, and your smile.
So much do I want you that
Each and every night as I think of you
My heart hears your sweet whispers and your...
when I see you
you get me
I enjoy our friendship
I can't see my life with out you.
. your family
you make me happy
hearing your handsome voice
hugging you close
your lips so sweet
your touch on my back
makes me smile.
Waking up in the morning,
another day dawns,
I rush to my computer,
I flip the cold box on.
As it's familiar sounds start,
Time to pour a cup,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
The brilliance of my plumage, brilliant and loud.
My elegant crimson tail slightly swaying in my cage of gold.
Such elegance, such grace. Like the queens of old.
But then the heat spreads from my tail to my golden head.
Puff, I burst into the ashes I have been taught...
Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
