They Can
Only Be Loved
They Can Never
Be Tamed

I know the powers in the silence
Between the earth and the sky
Between your breath and my thigh
We hear the call
We cannot deny
What do we know
What do we offer
I only wish
We could share an answer
In the echoes from the walls
In the drums in the forest
Calling me forth
Calling me out
Now is not the time to release
I would never hold you down for beasts
I would never let you fall to pieces
I only want to show you
Beasts run wild for freedom
For escapes
They can only be loved
They can never be tamed
Calling you forth
Calling out for me
Where will you go
Where do we run
I want to soar
I want to live under the moonlight’s eye
In the steaming hot fire of delight
Steaming water in the center of the flames
Floating up above mountain peaks
Above the crosses and sins buried deep
And secrets underneath
That created steep defeat on a heart
Now it rises you up
Rises beyond
The seasons they cycle
Life and death trials
Your very breath darling
Your very breath darling
Rises you up
Rises you beyond
Above those highest elevations
Exploring your fascinations
The seasons cycle
Life and death trials
Your very breath darling
Your very breath darling
Consumed of starlight and my new eyes see
Everything lost is everything new to me
To you
The burdens of fear
Losing all that you believe is
Is released
In losing me
Is found in me
A beauty burning for all of our flames
A beauty burning for all of our flames
They can only be loved
They can never be tamed

The Evaporation
Of Mud Puddles

Good morning freedom
I finally let you go
Good for me
Better for you, you know
Take me from the kiss
And cuddles
Codependent wishes
Mud puddles
Clean dreams
And new stepping stones
Appear seamlessly
As if the world has always known
This is how we longed to be
This is who we are
This is how the world is seen through my eyes
The evaporation of what once was
Creates space for what is to come

The Bear Will
Be Cared For
And So Will I

I knew before
before I knew I knew
what I needed to know
but I couldn’t let go
Let go of my bear
Release the claws in my hair
His sharp teeth in my chest
His tongue orbiting my skin
Now my heart is learning to heal
But it still hurts
Burnt burnt burnt
It is a crispy black hole
Turning me inside out
Some days I can stand
Most days I just melt
As my heart falls out
From under me
Taking my breath
Away with it
But I knew before I knew
I knew all along
When I wanted to be strong
While he cradled his paw
He stayed in the cave
And gave gave gave
Gave me his love
From the back of the cave
As he was hiding in the cave
So it passed right over me
I didn’t understand
Cause he roared roared roared
But I was scared
I wanted to soar soar soar
High above the caves
I wanted to love
But I was never enough
I could never get him to come out
I knew before I knew
What I needed to know
That I would fade away
If I stayed beside his cave
Never invited fully in
Unseen and unknown
For he would rather be alone
With his thoughts and beliefs
But its hard to let go
Even when I know it
I miss him
But time will heal all scars
Time will take my bear away
And he will be cared for
And so will I

You Can’t Run
From Circumstance

I cant change what I’ve said
I can’t take back what I’ve done
To see your eyes like birds in the sky
Blinking wings wondering where I’ve gone
What I’ve done
I can only move on

You wont believe it is true
But I do think of you
In every breath from his lips
In every sweaty raindrop of kisses
I always wonder if you know
If you’re watching from a window
Aware of the truth
That buries the dreams we once knew

I was always honest in your arms
Faithful till the end
I should not have pretended
To have no locks on my heart
I should have showed you the bruises
When I stretched my arms wide to rip them apart
And the pain that it caused after all those years
I could only melt away and slip under the chains I had heavy on my skin
As we pretended the tears in your bed
Were fed from the wine
Instead of my head

And further and further
The bricks went high
Built layer by layer
The truth was denied
The truth became lies
And we whispered in silence
Whispers fierce like fireballs
Burning our skin
Till we were so far away
Till the words of our hearts we could no longer say

The truth that prevails is the truth of this
I never pretended to love you
It was real
It was rare
It was unfair
The circumstances of when we began
And how I ran
And how I always returned
For your room closed around us
Our little home
A world of our own
Until forks and knives
Cut us in two
Took the wives away for good
Cause she was promised away
Before your grown up wishes
Requested the little girl stay

Pale Hopes
Filled With
Dimensions Of
Colors We
Never Knew

It’s so peculiar
To feel so torn
To feel so strong
To break apart
In your arms
In your thoughts
Your words
Surround me
Stay with me through the night
Keep me up
Racing memories
Flooding back and filling with days
The delight
The haze
The drinks didn’t help
The more we swallowed
The more we felt
Still I melt
Pale hopes filled with dimensions
Of colors we never knew
Not sure what this means
Not sure what I want
Not sure who we are
Who we were
Who we are meant to become
If we are done
If there is more to come

You Would Never
Understand If I
Told You

How do I say
How do you know
Too many times
My dedication flows
We ran up the wall
We circled only to fall
But is the seed still thriving
Life about to burst through?
I looked for an answer
A star flew across the sky
I looked at the time
I knew exactly why
But you would never understand if I told you
Hopelessly
We fall again
Honestly
I do not mind
Clear out our heads
Empty our hearts
Pull me together
Another night for us
I dream of flying back
I have no way to turn around
No reason to wear the regret
I can only move along
I asked what is the real defense
And I do not even know
I havent a clue
Except it is all of those
It is everything
And now it does not even matter
