Grain of Sand

On this page
I am
Without strings and words
My tongue racing through
A desert of emptiness
Here there is no wind.

There is no path
Weathered by your feet
Nor a tree
Seasoned by the sun

My friends, there is no time.

It is here I lie
Underneath the stars that burn
And it is here I will be
When my face becomes theirs.

Here they fall
Strangers dressed in silhouettes
This land of mirrors
Without a name.

And it is here that I lie
Like all that I have lost

All Her Names

Shall I call you a cloud
That brings the promise of rain?
Or a street that leads me astray?
Shall I name all the seasons
As day turns to night and your face appears
Or should I lose myself in the
Nameless sound when wings are drawn.

Shall I count the number of
Strangers we have met and all your questions?
Or rather, the things we forget and
Never mention.
Confusions, complications
Between detours and destinations
Multiplications and divisions, is
The way we have lived.

Shall I call you a book
Whose pages are yellowed with time?
And each whiff brings to mind
Secrets of yesterday.
Friends and foes that held you close
Made you their own
Within stories where you find yourself.

But no, I shall call you a tree
That is as free
As its roots
Which never pick and choose where
They want to go.
Whose branches are not boundaries
Marked territories
But something that makes it beautiful.
And now naked, as you sway
In the autumn wind
I lie in your shade and wait for spring.

Into The Night

(Verse 1)
Love, it’s been raining lights
All throughout the night
Won’t you hold my hand and fly…away
See, the stars are all aligned
In a purple sky
Won’t you hold my hand and fly…today

Hey don’t give up too fast
‘cuz the only thing that lasts
Are the things you wanna save…yeah
I once fell beneath the cracks
And there’s no turning back
But know it’s never (too) late…yeah

And I don’t know
What they mean
When they ask me
To believe
There’s no reason
There’s no rhyme
To lose our voice
Into the night

(Verse 2)
And words…they can bring you down
And you smile without a sound
When no one is around…now

And like the human touch
Sometimes words don’t mean too much
And silence too, is a sound…now

And I don’t know
What they mean
When they want me
To believe
There’s no reason
There’s no rhyme
To lose our voice
Into the night

When The Sun Goes Down incomplete song

Hope lies in uncertain things
No one knows what the future brings
So much horror when there’s no sound
And there is a light when the sun goes down.

So much is gone, we were lead astray
But not al is lost, let’s learn to live.
So much has died, it’s gone away
But not all is lost, we’ll find a way.
