The villain is my heart
And fear a shield of pain that does not deflect
The wounds it gives just from holding
Make it’s protection naught
I cannot give up in this great fight
But it has been so long
And as my heart and spirit fade
I lose that joyful song
Let the villain turn around
And let the time be now
Fear is not the answer hear
And life will soon abound.
You said that one thing
As the boat bobbed up and down
And the wind paused
But I just couldn’t bring myself to believe you
And yes I know how many problems there are with that last line
I know that’s not how belief mechanisms work
But we can’t talk philosophy all day everyday.
belief, a cruel whipped master
life has this meaning
dining on the old one’s bones
seeing through this lense
nothing comes so naked
the world dies slowly
waiting for it’s time to birth
and so we see what’s shown.
Belief, like a waterfall
Is hardly ever controlled
And gets everywhere.
Dearest of the dear I beg you for this chance
I never thought that I might last to ask you for this dance
The lights are low and candles burn
Please let me take you twist and turn.
The moon is out right over there
I can see it looking past your hair
I can see it looking past your dress
Perhaps I’ve simply made a mess.
But you look so amazing here
And though I trip and stutter dear
I hope that you will take the time to see
What’s inside that I may be.
I dream that you can see a thing
Inside of me that I cannot
And love me from the first bell ring
As I fight this awful lot.
So let me have this dance tonight
And let it be the way you dream
And maybe I can last the fight
And maybe more if you would deem.
