Speak

Don’t speak to me now
In throes of fevered fervor
Like twisted DNA
Bound in spirals
Still zipped closed
If loosed
The story they would tell
Could burn us to cinders
I lay the bricks hastily
Damning the emotions
Into oceans of fire
So they never touch you
Were you always here
Before Time was born
Was it written
We would meet like this
In a present impossible
Unless we failed to love
Breaking all with evil

No…

Don’t speak to me now

Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing

Floating nowhere
Word
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing
What is your voice
Such a face
In sin
I must compare
None more beautiful
Rage and passion
Loyalty and love
There is no half of you …
Extreme soul
I will borrow your eyes
Stand with you sometimes
When you smile in the sun
Rare
Thee are Key
Unseen doors
Feet grow roots in land
Until you would be a part
Floating nowhere
Word
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing
Bursts of emotion unknown
Mask for the world
Duty a master for eternity’s reward
Yet you feel more
Than every saint and every dog
It screams from you in joy
In anger
In raw amazement
I love you
I can never prove it
I can never say it
You will never know
Word
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing
Float nowhere
You were born too late
Into a world you do not belong
You should have been
Vizier in the palace of a king
Hundreds of years ago
But you are here
Torn from Time
Misplaced
Do you know when I am near you
Can you see me
The ghostly image
Of long ago’s desire
Word
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing
May I borrow your hands
Climb rocks
May I borrow your heart
Feel all you feel In this world past imagination
Floating nowhere
I would give you a sea
Of love to drown in
If it were mine to give
Word
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing

1983 (Hell Maybe What They Say Is True)

Hell maybe what they say is true

I don’t fit in and I’M NOT LIKE YOU,

Something crazy drives my soul,

Headlong, insane Rock and roll,

You don’t see me,

You’re Blind to me,

I’m something you’re afraid to be,

Hell, maybe what they say is true,

I don’t fit in,

I’m not LIKE YOU!

If others did to you, what you do to them, you’d lose your start!

Seeking your revenges for the actions in which you played a part?

Maybe you don’t realize your eyes betray the HATRED in your heart!

You speak of Trust you never knew,

You talk of things you never do,

Hell, maybe what they say is true,

I don’t fit in I’m not like you!

(an old song I wrote when I was 19)
