Epiphanies In The Night





Epiphanies in the night
The music striking your brain
The darkness evaporates
Knowledge is a blinding pain
Never again to be the same
Altered from the inside out
Your soul enhancing
Growth is what life’s all about


Life Is Funny That Way




Life is funny that way
Exposed from the inside out
Natural rules in the darkness
Sullen secrets they’re willing to tout
But claw your way past the nonsense
Clear their voices out of your eyes
There’s a truth within your heart
Cling to it, before it withers & dies

Strapped Into A Mourning Gown






Strapped into a mourning gown
That might survive our winter garden
Rebasing all these dreams
This predicament has begun to harden;
I beg your pardon
Slowly peeling off your layers
Caught us in a lightning storm
Feeling excited electricity
Between our adrenalized forms
Standing naked before the darkness
Illuminated only by midnight flashes
Perfection within a moment
Emotion dripping from your eyelashes


Tonight We’re Going To Step On Out




Tonight we’re going to step on out
Letting the cool breeze touch our souls
Watching the darkness quietly creep in
Holding hands as we take gentle pulls
The whiskey settles into a familiar burn
Nothing remaining but what we are
Excluding the day’s negative traits
Naturally only wearing the glow from the stars


She Liked To Remain In The Shadows


She liked to remain in the shadows
To avoid casual glimpses of her features
But I loved her no matter what she thought
She was beautiful, one of God’s lovely creatures
I always knew it was her by the extravagant handbags
& the way she wore her coat over her shoulders
The darkness could never hide her from my soul
With each step, desire allowed my heart to grow bolder


We’re Dealing With Our Daily Struggles




We’re dealing with our daily struggles

Some are obviously much more dire

But no one can minimize your pain

There’s no sunshine when you’re in the mire

Facedown, it’s difficult to have any hope

But know darkness will eventually burn away

The fog will lift & you’ll see the light

The Lord will always bring you to another day


A Question Of Intents & Purpose


A question of intents & purpose
Where & why; the source of our confusion
Time swaying with each movement
Closing our eyes, believing the illusion
Do you remember or it is all a memory
Lost within the darkness of our souls
I’m not who I ever thought I could be
Dreams evaporating when the moon grows full


Dancing Through Where The Flowers Grow


Dancing through where the flowers grow
Exiting through the darkness to escape
Kissing secrets no one can ever know
Headphones on, listening to vibes on tape


Irrational Journeys Into The Darkness


Irrational journeys into the darkness
Feeling out your soul in the middle of the night
Still searching for that improbable trip
Recoiling into yourself at the tender slight
Trying to save all humanity
Sometimes you need to just save yourself
Taking time to mend your broken heart
Searching for the remedy for your soul’s health


Don’t Love Me Because I’m Beautiful


Don’t love me because I’m beautiful

Love me in spite of the darkness of my soul’s shade

I’m trying to outlast the setting sun

To still be relevant after your attention begins to fade
