Keep Pushing


I think I am getting ready to become unhinged
Sour notes struck across ill-tuned strings
This wound stuck deep
Enough to fester
Not enough to kill
Slowly bleeding out caustic anxiety
No words for they sting caustic on my flesh
Touch me and launch a thousand evils out of hell
Condescending your lack of faith
Do you see my gaze
It burns your effigy
Do you feel my tongue
Striking out a cord of razor and barb
This corner you’ve backed me in to
This dark place of directions set in flight
Walls made to contain a raging furnace
A crumbling foundation set to topple
How much longer
How much further
Push me off this ledge
Our fate rests in careless ways

All the love and all the promises

Today my love you are taking away the memories.
Today my love you pack a life we made together.
All those dreams and hopes.
All the love and promises.

Today my love marks the end of a dream.
Today my love our parting tears into my flesh.
All the fun and all the good times.
All the love and all the promises.

Today my love we split our lives.
Today my love we go our separate ways.
All the romance and all the intimacy.
All the tears and all the warmth.

Two lives bound together now pulled apart.
Two pieces in the whole.
A union of hearts ours no more.
All the love and all the promises.

My lover is gone.
Never again will we hold one another.
Never again will these to halves be together.
All the love and all the promises.

These tears are for you.
