The Space To Run

I don't think this blog format works very well for longer pieces, so here is The Space To Run on my dA account.

Trying Too Hard To Be Immortal

Another one from 2011 that I finished recently.

Trying Too Hard To Be Immortal

I whispered to the world
And said my secrets safe with you
Closed my eyes and turned
A golden key
Laid down to rest

But somehow
The earth had found
A way to be untrue
My secrets never mattered
To a mother cold as you

And no matter how I wished
Beneath stars or sinking moon
Not an answer
Just a promise
Of an ending coming soon

So I wandered through a thousand lives
And lived them one by one
Closed my eyes
They slipped away
I forgot where I'd begun

The Road Is Moving

Don't let life beat you into thinking there are rules you have to follow. You get one life - this is it. If you really want something, don't give up; fight for it, take it.

I turn around
But nothing's there
We're running so fast
We forget where

I've gone so far in this lifeline
I need a new life
But where to start from?
We've been here so long

After awhile
We forget the beauty
Of the moment, the unknown
It's burning right through me

I gave you time
Time didn't care
Now who's waiting
Who's around the corner?

We're so far past a dead end
Feels like a start to forever
Where am I going?
The road is moving

After awhile
We forget the beauty
Of the moment, the unknown
It's burning right through me

Going through the past 6 months of random stuff.


As the moon rose
As the trees spoke
Swaying smoothly as the heart
With a beat that is red
and delicious

With fire coursing
and melting
Its way through time
Our fire, we felt
We cried that it belonged to us

But time and fire
Never knew our names
Our precious youth
and hidden games
That vanish, untraced

Yet we lay, boldly
Beneath the stars
Surrounded by emptiness
and beauty
For a moment
