Coated

Candy coated splatter on my heart
drinking before noon becomes an art
sitting in the backseat of some guy’s car
little edgy girls they fall apart
here they are again a different set
candy coated innocence well bred
drinking in the sun and driving far
little girls all divas in the stars
girlhood starts to die this time tonight
crying is romantic when your high

Out comes the knife

Into the veins
into the tear ducts
into your eyelids
outcomes the secrets
burnt from the lies
that paint up your tongue
burning with questions
what do you love
breathing the air
and burning from sun
lips haven’t healed
bleeding from gums
into the veins
these wounds won’t heal
trying to remember
what is not real
into the tear ducts
out with the lies
no one is crying
just keep getting by
outcomes the secrets
the pain that you hide
into the veins
out comes the knife

Walls

You say too much but not at all
the silence here is thicker than walls
it could keep a house so warm inside
wordless evenings damning rhymes
everything you never say
speak about our lives decay
nothing ever gets to good
the words don’t know what they’re worth
standing in the silent rain
watching this house build and fade
keeps you warm and rather dry
when the roof leaks the tears are mine
pouring words flooding rhymes
you say too much but not at all
the walls you built are rather nice
though the floor is soaking through
words like rain come seeping mute
sleeping without holding hands
these walls are still so rather grand

The unopened eye

One more head roll
eyes cold we know
everything is empty still
we do so much
just to pay the bills
one more stiff drink
the alcohol
it breaks the beat
I don’t know
much more to say
the starting of
the minds decay
one more tide
to call a stray
the symptoms of
the laughing rain
one more night to cry
the blood comes from
the unopened eye.

Playing house progressively

White bells and wedding cakes
don’t know how long it takes
everything comes to a close
where nothing dies
but everything grows
perfect skies and perfect weather
friends and family gathered together
nothing here but left behind
girls they dreamt now those dreams cry
nothing yet has come to pass
girls turn to women women at last
but all the gardens have grown cold
nothing left they are all alone.

Nightmares

I don’t know what I’m crying for
I just know I’m dying on the floor
moaning and sighing
this heart aches for more
but it’s gone now
it’s gone now
the feeling I was holding
it’s gone now
and I don’t have a cure for sobbing
it’s gone now I’m broken
but it’s not alright
no beauty here, no tragic light
no candle dinners this time tonight
I don’t know what I’m crying for
don’t know why my heart is sore
why every bone is breaking
or why my hands are shaking
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
another breakdown another bad dream
