Optical Hopes & Illusions

Excuse me I don’t mean to presume
But your eyes follow me wherever I go
If this warmth that I feel
When you look at me
Isn’t simply one sided
I thought you should know.

Pardon me babe I can’t take anymore
The touch of your hand is too much to bear
I might just lose control
Do something mad
It’s overwhelming this hope
When you smile at me dear.

Is it too late love, have you given up?
I’m sorry it took me so long to decide
This love is so new but
Our friendship so rare
And I fear losing you boy
So my heart I would hide.

Am I assuming too much?
Was I blind?
I’m torn in two directions;
What should I choose?
You’ve been my friend
And you’ve been my guide
Just tell me please
I am lost in the woods.

Could you give me a hint, give me a clue
There’s only so much waiting I can take
Do I dare kiss you?
What would you do?
Should I risk my everything
For my heart’s sake.
Night Calls

Come with me, fall into darkness
Come discover the beauty of night
The secret ways and shadows
The wonders seen without sight.

Come with me, sink into magic
Darkness and wonder we possess
Walk with me through dreams
While the world lays at rest.

Come with me, dwell within me
Until dawn brings the light
Hold me until we feel eternal
In the warm embrace of the night.

Come with me, feel passions song
Until night throbs in your blood
Let me feel you, skin to skin
In a moment my heart will ever hold.

Only come to me beloved
I have no place in the light
And would you have ever loved me
If I were not the Lady Night?
Love Thy Fellow Men

The joyous bells and blazing sun
And frosting of delicate lace upon green grass
A chill in the air when the day is done
And twinkling lights on roof and glass.

Sons in the darkness when the snow has yet to fall
Call to mind ancient cries of celestial host
Before man knew of the season or who we would call
Savior and sacrifice, carpenter and king, father or son or ghost.

Skies of grey and gold and blue
All the faithful scurrying below
In heart of hearts, honorable intentions true
To Celebrate the Birthday in the best way we know.

Let our names lead all the rest.
For if we love, we will love our best
And if we do not love Him best, then
We will be writ as those who love our fellow men.
Let Me Rest

Oh, lady, I am in sore need
My heart barely mended
I am broken and alone
       Let me rest, bring me home.

Lend me your strengthening arms
Guide my wandering path
So long its been since the moon has shone.
       Let me rest, bring me home.

My sword arm is weak and wounded
My soul is weary
My magics spent and flown.
       Let me rest, bring me home.

I am tired, still I journey
I will keep to the road You set me on.
Up ahead I see your light shining
Have I come, to the world beyond?
       Let me rest, bring me home.
       In your mercy
       Let me rest, oh I am weary
       Let me rest, bring, me  home.
The Mirror

The mirror tells me I’m alive and well
All of my friends can’t seem to tell
That the best part of my heart is gone
Since you left me to face my life alone.

Chorus:
I can’t breathe and I don’t eat
I can’t sleep and my heart doesn’t beat.
Every day and night takes an eternity of moments alone, so empty.
Now that I’m without you and me.
But I’m alive and well, the mirror tells me.

I was fine before I ever met you.
Work and play, now and then try something new
I looked in your eyes and I’d never felt that way before
And with you in my life, I wanted so much more.

Chorus:
I can’t breathe and I don’t eat
I can’t sleep and my heart doesn’t beat.
Every day and night takes an eternity of moments alone, so empty.
Now that I’m without you and me.
But I’m alive and well, the mirror tells me.

I miss who I was when you loved me.
The strength and sweetness only you could see.
I changed with you, became someone better and new.
But when I grew up, your love changed too.
And now…

Chorus:
I can’t breathe and I don’t eat
I can’t sleep and my heart doesn’t beat.
Every day and night takes an eternity of moments alone, so empty.
Now that I’m without you and me.
But I’m alive and well, the mirror tells me.

So the mirror tells me…

Basically I'm going to upload my writing, but that's about it.  Rather write my fics than journals.  So there we are.
