A flying bird shit over me today
I was wearing a new shirt
It should have been a great sunny day
But that bird ruined it all
It felt that he intended to
The least was I expecting that something would ruin my day

Just like you did
When you went away
Just like you did
When you stabbed me
Out of the blue with no reason
Just like the bird did
You did with my life

Clouds showed up
As if I was missing something
To make me regret
To remind me what I did forget
Rain fell over me
And I was unprotected
Unaware of today’s surprise

Just like you
October came in may
Just like you
Summer walked away
Just like a flash
Everything crashed
Just like my day
Just like my life

Fly,
Fly on the wings of an owl
Ugly like you and your days
Run,
As fast as you can before
Before I get to you
Cause I’m lost
Should I hit you
Or should I kiss your lips
If I let you go a part of me
Will escape from me before
Before you walk out that door
If I let you in I would forget
Everything you might have said
And I will fall for you all over again
Like I’ve always did
Like a fool
Walk,
Walk away with your pride
With your bittersweet lies
I can’t take it anymore
I can’t stand you anymore
Walk away inside that door
Walk with all your shit
I can’t stand you away for another second
I can’t stand you anymore away from my arms
Cause I’m lost
Should I hit you
Or should I kiss your lips
If I let you go a part of me
Will escape from me before
Before you walk out that door
If I let you in I would forget
Everything you might have said
And I will fall for you all over again
Like I’ve always did
Like a fool

alone I’ve been walking
alone I’ve been talking
wondering you’re standing there
remembering what we did today
as if you were with me
right in front of me
as I’ve always hoped you,d be

How,
how could you dare to
how could you had the heart to
make the one two again
tear me down by a different name
why,
why someone would do what you did
why someone would sin like you sinned
who,
who is standing there if not you
who I’m a talking to if not you
who,
who is the one who’d take your place
who is the one who’d fill that space

another night has passed
another day will be elapsed
time is flying through the window
before my eyes
days are traveling by light speed
before my dreams
before our dreams would come to be true
I smoked another pack today
trying to make life shorter
maybe we were meant to be
in another life
I drank another bottle today
hoping tomorrow would come sooner
maybe that’s how it would be
in another life

how,
how could you dare to
how could you had the heart to
make the one two again
tear me down by a different name
why,
why someone would do what you did
why someone would sin like you sinned
who,
who is standing there if not you
who I’m a talking to if not you
who,
who is the one who’d take your place
who is the one who’d fill that space

The Reason I Bleed

The Reason I Bleed

Broken hearts once molded together
Never to separate under any weather
Sown together by love and compassion
But now betrayal is there latest fashion

Two shattered hearts made whole
Two black voids made full
Because once broken a heart can never be put together
With out another heart just as broken

Once two hearts make a whole
They cannot live without another
For with out a heart there is no soul
And they will die without each other

So I cry tears of blood
And from my wrists these tears do flood
She tore her heart from mine
So that I may reach the end of my time

And that is why I bleed
For the love that that came from a seed
The love that I lived for
The love that I shall die for

The Things I Never Had

The things I relearn, relearn
and relearn again
The lessons I could never
get in my head
come round every
so many years
hoping my brain
finally hears

For my mind is filled
with dreams and visions,
deep profound thoughts,
and spiritual inspirations
So many messages
on my blue wings
toss practical thoughts
and mundane things

The technical mechanics
the boggling unrest
the business as usual
the mainstream of life
I fear that I’ll never
have toughness or presence
The things that proletariats
live for in essence

I miss the daylight
of ordinary life
love, babies, cats, dogs,
white houses, green lawns
The things most people
cherish the most
the dinners, baseball
the great wedding toast

In my older years
will I finally get it
the basics of life
and how you
should live it
We’re all different
the therapists say
Will I finally reach
the edge of my dark days

Will I get intact
and rise to a steady life
earning money wherever,
have a family, red car,
and good friends
Getting all kinds of things
that I earn
to receive all the nice
parts of life that I yearn

This has been troublesome
I pray hard for all of this
The coming of age,
while my heart’s let down and torn
I want to have what
everyone should
Love and life
that is simple and good
