Darkly

Fire burning dark
blazing up the sky
bursting into moonlight
getting in your eyes
shattering the atmosphere
breaking down your will
fire burning brightly
doesn’t pay the bills
burdens you for hours
taking all your milk
cannot think for nothing
your sight is shattered still
everything is patterned
patterned by the dark
the fire burning brightly
it’s the night that it has wrought

Come after

I don’t see into the dark
blinded by the night
turning from the shadows burn
into the breaking twilight
got myself in bleeding times
got myself alive
burning from the darkness
trying to find the light
I don’t see into the dark
I cannot read the shadows
turning from its ill regard
I begin to shatter
cannot look into the night
the light does not come after

Such a long time

I’ve been waiting such a long time
just to look into the mirror
to see my face again
to know that I’m still here
I’ve been waiting such a long time
a long time just to see
if my sins have changed me
or if I’m still clean
have I lost myself dear
to this bitterness
can I still repent if this is all there is
I’ve been waiting such a long time
but in the end it’s me
the face within the mirror
sins and eyes complete

How to read

Don’t want to see it
the writing on the wall
so defeated
the words don’t mean to fall
I just can’t read it
can’t hear the message in the air
I don’t believe it
I just hear it everywhere
and now it’s gone but
I never knew that it was near
don’t want to see it
now that it’s gone I cannot cheer
I never needed
anything but words you see
didn’t hear them
forgot that I know how to read

From afar

It looks so good from far away
I look so right no signs of grey
I take my time
just another dame
another girl who don’t look your way
it looks so good but then you get close
see the cracks and see the smoke
but you pretend it’s all okay
better with what the eyes don’t make
you see it all and it’s so broken
it looked so good but now I’ve spoken
everything not what you think
from afar don’t know its me
