The Sad Song of Angels
I am the fire that burned in your past
and the ice that took over within
Some things just don't seem to match;
they clash too hard to maintain any balance
Intensity is what motivates us to breathe
Ferocity is what drives us to fall to our knees,
or give up our souls, or surrender and plead
Tenderness and hatred, a fine line between
fire and ice and water and steam
This one was written last night for a friend of mine. Her friend killed herself the night before, and I could see how it affected so many people. I felt like writing this for all those who end their lives...
Somewhere along the way, the meaning was lost
between translation and despair, something whispered...
A lie was born, and the One below smiled, as yet another took their life.
The angels welcome them, with teary eyes, they sing a sad song for us.
This is the path we walk, and we can follow so many different ways.
This is the life and death we are gifted, and we choose just how to use them.
Lonesome and alone, distraught and done, weakened, weary, dying...
but I tell you now, the ones you leave behind will suffer oh so greatly.
I see it every day, the way that we surrender, the lies we allow to seep in.
Fight that feeling, I pray thee, take one more breath for us,
and if you choose to leave us, may thee rest in peace, while we pick up the pieces.
I dip my hand into the night sky
and feel the stars, like sand,
running off the tips of my fingers
and bringing galaxies to life
Don't you speak to me,
these rumors of defeat,
for victory is all I shall become
and time will rest within me
I saw your face today, I remember this,
but I already have forgotten every detail of it
I recall some sort of scent,
and ever lovely it was to me
I felt your aura next to mine,
and your walls gave way to mine
Maybe it was all just a dream
This one feels extremely close to my heart. I can't explain it, really. I just feel somehow like this is a large piece of my heart, in words.
More so, than knee deep,
becoming buried in that
which we fear and seek
to someday come to accept
drown me in your oceans,
steal my breath from me
engulf me in your fires,
burn my skin away
you left me speechless,
too alive to open my eyes
to the truth of it,
to the truth of everything
keep me blind tonight,
don't allow my eyes to see
in your arms, I'm free,
to free-fall from the sky
I feel it all too clearly
this body will soon leave me
