The Best Kept Secret

Nothing left
Nothing left but beauty
All passed
All passed but still here
An illusion
An illusion you created
To bathe yourself in ever hot tears

The Cynic

Miles across the crust
Lands, seas and mountains
Trees, flowers and birds
The world, the Earth, the universe
So enormous
There’s no room for me
So immense
I have nowhere to be

The Mess

Do you understand why sometimes I don’t understand why you treat me this way
Do you understand why sometimes I just wanna hold you but also hide
From your loving eyes

The Passing Rain

Those teeth, veins, roars
That kind of burning glare
I know them all
I know them all
This shaking, chattering
This type of inaudible begging
What else can I do
What more can I ask for

The Casa

Finding home
I’m finding a home
Without odour
Without nuisance
Finding somewhere
To be my home
A few pairs of worn shoes
A whole backpack of melancholy
I hug myself
So cold, so warm
I dry my tears
Helpless then back to fearless
Finding home
Searching the world
Somewhere I’m cherished
Somewhere I’m the priority
Finding a place
To be my home
Volumes of heart-to-heart journals
An overwhelming number of snapshots
I searched the world
For years on my own
I’m my home
So I thought

The Evil Inside

It’s the evil inside
The little demon
Talking and talking and talking
Until it breaks your silence
It’s this little guy
His harder and harder pushes
Trying and trying and trying
Until it breaks you into pieces

The Hostess

Come inside
Welcome to my mess
Make yourself home
You know I never know best
Stroll across
Tiptoe through
Enter the core
Recover my soul
But don’t
If you can’t make it to the end
Don’t
Even
Knock
