    Calm Tranquility: The endless fields of grass

    (Chorus) Being on the road won't solve all

    your life's problems, But being on the road doesn't have to make them worse. All that time by yourself is an opportunity for thinking, Piece together the full story and maybe framing it as a verse. Then you can rehearse and sing the song about what's troubling you, And like with...

    I dreamt of: I dreamt of you

    but then I woke I still remember each word you spoke I dreamt the way I wanted things to be Here we stand just you and me I look to the sky, know that you are there Hope you know I’ll always care Looked at the pictures of you and me Thought that you and I would always be Now...

    Scarred: Sitting here with my scarred skin

    You just stand there with the widest grin For the life of me I can’t see why You’d hold my hand and let us fly From my lifeless times to melodic rimes you You’ve been by my side Hard times come and go but we’ll pull through Forever on this ride Those times my...

    Fly Away...

    So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...

    Illuminati . So much foolishness in the world

    A Mask Of Smiles

    Do you see my smile? The one that I wear everyday The one that says I'm okay But am I? Do you hear me laughing At your lamest jokes And silly antics But is it for real? Or is it fake? Is it a mask I wear To avoid the questions? Or a mask that I wear To hide my emotions? Do you...

    Numb

    Is numbness an emotion? How can it not be when, at times, It’s all I ever feel?   Sometimes I wonder if it has a mind of its own It’s very deceptive, Clever, And cunning. At first it seeps into yourheart, Makes you cold, Weak, Vulnerable. Then it envelopes your...

    Lost In Your Heart-beat

    Take a step back, Look at your life, Put it in perspective, See what it's worth. Through the good and bad times, You said you'd be there, But now you're gone, It just aint fair. And I'm the one that's been abandoned, Left behind on my own, Tangled in the mess you've made. But I...

    Weaving pictures in my mind, Of all the things I've left behind. A tapestry of memories, A portrait of how things used to be. A word, a thought, a laugh a smile, All beautifully etched in the image for a while. The colours fade, The feeling remains, Like a part of your soul has...
