What Did You Expect?

beautiful-little-birds-tattoo-on-back-for-girls

What did you expect of me? You let me go and set me free
I wouldn’t fly or spread my wings? I wouldn’t do new things?
Like a dog that runs away, doesn’t heed when you say stay
Because a little child I’m not, doesn’t listen to you on the spot

So don’t ignore the change you see, I’m not who I use to be
I make new choices for myself, no one can put me on a shelf
Took control of who I am, and now I don’t give one damn
What do you expect of me? Well, no more, because I’m free©

Brave Enough

I wasn’t brave enough, the first time,  to let you go
So I stumbled in the darkness instead 
Looking for a light that I don’t  think existed 
Grasping at the air and reaching for something, anything
Not sure when I stopped caring about tomorrows
I just wasn’t brave enough, the first time, but now I know©

Just Another Love Song

hades_and_persephone_by_alexandravbach-d8c950o

A simple gesture, a hand on mine, skin to skin
Touches me deeper than one could imagine
Never realized how foreign it could feel
Until you reached in and warmed me

Were the gods looking down on this moment?
Did they see my brokeness and yours too?
Two lost souls destined to be haunted?
No, our pasts do not taint us here!

So, can there be something so true?
As a second chance come along
If I am to believe this, and I do
Then this is where I belong
Here I ascend into you©

No Fear

My knees buckle and I feel my skin begin to prickle

I know that fear has me in its cross-hairs again 

What shall I do? Just crumbel, let fear win?

No! I will not succumb, I will not give in!©

Nothing Remains

Magical bird takes flight.

Released my soul, I set it free, but it keeps coming back to me
I told it lies, called it names, but says it loves me all the same
So now I can’t feel a thing, but also no joy does anything bring
Emptied of all the bitter pain, but then nothing does remain©

Light Breaks In

tecza

Light breaks in as the day starts anew
I feel the warmth on me from you
The storm has passed and all is clean
No more darkness, all can be seen

Water glistens from the tall oak tree
High up above a bird soars free
Nature fought and the storm is done
Tattered and worn, yet we won

Lightning struck and thunder roared
Hale came down and rain poured
Still, around me I feel safe and sound
Feet firmly planted on the ground

Light breaks in as the day starts anew
I feel the warmth on me from you
You’re my strength, shining as the sun
Tattered and worn, yet we won©

All That Remains

97d0910d84541b393341dce8b164b125--dark-room-photography-dark-photography-depression


Had disappeared, you broke me free

Told me that I don’t have to be
The person others believe that I am
Don’t need to give one damn

Tow the line, be a ghost of myself
Put all my desires on a shelf
Dot all your “i’s” and cross every “t”
This is what they want of me

Don’t know how to live, but cannot die
Although I do not know why
Until one day you whispered in my ear
Reminded me, you’re still here

Escaped the chains that held me down
Almost too late, I nearly drown
Then you reached through, took me in
One more day they don’t win!

Thank you, hope, my dearest of friend
You remain true to the very end©
