Pint-sized power

I write secret songs
Lyrics longing to be learned.
I sing in a voice of silence,
Only wanting to be heard.
What is it about being seen
That makes me want to run
and hide?
I feel tiny trapped within
This mouse of an appearance,
With a whale sized heart inside.

Waiting for you

You started a fire
You forgot to put out,
Leaving me waiting
Flaming hot with desire.
Imagine a glimpse, a flicker
Of the flame you leave burning.
Like a candle,
Wax dripping hot beads…
My lust melts to sweat,
Fingers wet,
Soaking sheets.

Benign

I pace around like my brain’s lost,
Trying to find it, just killing time,
But at what cost?

Without my mind, without any aim,
I’m just getting careless,
But am I to blame?

Feeling crazy, or just stupid,
Hazy now or going faint,
Is this just another dream in lucid?

A lost soul, a silent art
Only sentenced to asylum…
Why do I need a brain,
When I have a good heart?

Aquarius

I turn to stone when you touch me,
Still, it’s not my truth,
I just don’t want you to see
That I’m soft and mushy…
How I’m always so blue,
That the night competes with me
Even more than you do.
I’m sorry if I seem heartless,
The way I run to hide,
Because I promise I’m not
Callous…
I just feel as though I’ve died.
Some say it’s cold hearted,
I say that’s another lie.
You see,
I just have the type of heart
That is safer kept inside.

a.l.c

Afire

I crave you,
All my wants have turned
To needs.
I burn with a flame
That is hot
Only for you,
Because only you
Have the power
To spread the fire
Or
Tame it.

Your secret blue

I know you like to change colors,
But I know you at your core,
You’re blue.
Please do not try to fake it with me,
Showing orange and reds
Beneath your yellows.
Yes, vibrant green is many things,
But I know it’s not true.

a.l.c
