Fractals

Look through the world’s mirror –
There’s nothing that we ever view
outside the things we’ve always seen.
For, everything is just the same
as everything that’s ever been,
and everything is all that’s ever seen.

What I see is
everything I ever see
reflected through the mirror at me, and
what I see is
everything that you could be
reflected through this mirror I see here.

What you are is
everything that you could be,
but all of that is only me. And
what I am is
everything that I can be,
and all of that is what you see.

For, all of that which you can be
is everything. It’s all I see,
and everything that I can be
is everything. It’s all you see
reflected in the world’s mirror of me.

Look through the world’s mirror –
There’s nothing that we ever view
outside the things we’ve always seen.
For, everything is just the same
as everything that’s ever been,
and everything is all that’s ever seen.

Little Things

And the little things
I never thought
could ever get away;

they have just run straight
from my mind again
no matter what I say.

Could
it
be?

I never thought that this could happen to me.
I never thought my mind could ever fade.

Now, I must begin another way of doing everything,
and now I must begin another way of seeing everything,
and now I must begin another way of hearing everything,
and now I must begin another way of feeling everything,
but I am too old to begin this life that I must lead today.

And the little things
I never thought
could ever get away;

they have just run straight
from my mind again
no matter what I say.

I will never begin a new way of doing anything,
and I will never begin a new way of seeing anything,
and I will never begin a new way of hearing anything,
and I will never begin a new way of feeling anything
because I am far too old to ever begin doing anything at all.

Daynight

Color your love and gaze
silver to gold.
Moon set the sun ablaze;
daynight unfold.

Stars can’t shine through you,
burn the way you do.

Warm my hands for this…
Wrap your mind to this…
Shoot us through with a frozen light.

Filter through out of space
into my soul.
Empty eternal grace…
nothing is whole.

Stars shine out through you,
incinerating blue.

Warm my hands for this…
Wrap your mind to this…
Shoot us through with a frozen light.

Colors of love will take
time to expose.
Purple to silver breaks
daynight, a rose.

Shine stars through darkrooms,
chemicals of noon.

My hand warms to you…
Your mind turns my blue…
Shooting daynight through frozen light.

Song for the Night

You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.
So I’m leaving you this song
because our memories aren’t real.
They’re nothing solid to feel.

And all our lies and truths and joys and pains
will all seem beautiful once again.

You’re gonna wonder where I’ve gone,
crying to hope to come along.
But you can’t follow me here, my dear.
So when you close your eyes my words are near.

And though your world will forget about me
within this song I’ll still be seen.

You must forgive me;
I got carried away.
You must forget me
as you’re carried away.

I’m gonna miss you when you’re gone.
‘Cause nothing stays around here long.
And someday you will write
a song for someone else’s night.

And when you do, please let them know
there’s nowhere else for us to go.

 

The Kite

Don’t know how to keep you here:
strings and fingers disappear
in the sun where we’re one
as you fly up to the sky.

You taught me how to play,
how to laugh and how to say
that my fear disappeared
like a kite adrift at midnight.

And I did what you said to do,
tied a knot and away we flew.
And we never came down
to the shrieks from the ground.

Don’t know how to set you free
to fly away in a summer’s breeze…
Tied tight like some kites
to the ones we’ve become.

And I did what you said to do,
tied a knot and away we flew.
But you never did seem
to be more than just a dream…

Much more than just a dream…
Much more than just a dream…

 

Shine Our Smiles Away

Sunlight, shine our smiles away.
Your beams light storms inside my soul
today.

But rain’s my role.
These clouds make you whole.

The lightning is this song I rain.
It hides the thunder in its call
again.

But light’s so small.
It’s darkness, that’s all.

Our storm will sweep up everything
that’s buried by my rain.

Why shine today?
Why shine today?

I see you in the warm ahead.
I see you in the warm ahead.
I feel you in the warm ahead…

 

My Dark Garden

Sunbeams at break of day
might shine through the words I say,
but all that’s bright
can never light
these songs I sing for you.

Hide on my shadowed throne,
tending nightmares alone.
All my dark garden’s grown
is everything that you have ever feared.

And so when I sing my rhymes to you
do not pluck their bulbs so beautiful.
Do not smell scents shrouded in blues.
Do not taste their flavors of evil.

Everything I’ve ever said, I said it all for you,
to steal all that you have loved and feed the light in you.

Sunbeams at break of day
might shine through the words I say,
but all that’s bright
can never light
these songs I sing for you.

Here on my shadowed throne
where nightmares grow on their own
I sit, and I cry alone
for everything that you have ever…

Love is not what we’ve all been taught,
and truth is not something that’s forgot.
Pain is what we’ve been taught is love.
Truth can grow below to light above.

Everything I’ve ever said, I said it all for you,
to light the way that you must go with knowledge in these hues.

Sunbeams at break of day
might shine through the words I say,
but all that’s bright
can never light
these songs I sing for you.

Hide on my shadowed throne,
tending nightmares alone.
All my dark garden’s grown
is everything that you have ever feared.
