Trying To Set The Mood

Trying to set the mood
Listening to the precarious notes
Candles willing themselves alight
Our hearts feel magically afloat

This Is Where Souls Need To Thaw Out

tropical-beach-1149937

This is where souls need to thaw out
Nothing cool about the damn boat
Sucking at my will to exist
Can’t think of jumping, I can’t float
Where are those precious islands
I’ve heard such enchanted tales
I need something to fill my mind
Clutching the rails through the gales

I Used To Be Young & Impulsive

I used to be young & impulsive
Idealistic – crying out for those mistreated
Arrogant, impervious to facts or wisdom
Ready for the status quo to be defeated

Now I’m old & impulsive
Stringing words together at will
Focusing on a more personal battle
Time has removed my desire to kill

I continue to pull within my own skin
Struggles no one can understand or see
Alone to fight these cruel thoughts
The sands fall & I merely wish to be free
