Prayer -Theme 3-As I lay in the peaceful silence at nightI feel this cracked, bruised heart breakingand I pray for the miracle of dawn,when the possibilities of life aren't as real.The horizon remains slowly unyieldinguntil the first light of another lonely sunrisepeaks up over the distant hills.One night, I dreamed of a black abyssand from deep within the depthsof that unforgiving, black ocean of nothingnessI heard your voice calling out to me.So as I lay here on another night of solitudeI send this lonely, faded prayer to the skyin hopes that it may someday reach you."Please, return to me again soon."
Lullaby -Theme 2-Here in my abandoned, desolate prison,my voice echoes infinitely as I cry out in despair.This sorrowful melody which speaks of emptiness,this is my personal lullaby,unheard and unsung through the ages.Lost within my deserted hell,salvation, sanctuary, and safety are all wordswhose utterance bears no meaning.Time marches on and leaves casualties in its wakeand for them, and for my own sake,I sing this song of unheard prayers.Still, the hands of the clock continuein a pace and rhythm as unending as my misery-as unyielding and unforgiving as the sunwhich shines upon the barren desert of my heart.It wasn't so long ago, now,when the darkness was still a stranger to me,but when faced with the unlikely wish I hold inside,the reality of the situation is in sharp focusand it hurts more and more deeply with every cut.If I allow myself to be fooled by the false promiseswhich this world offers up so freely,then I know we will meet again one dayand together we will sing the m
Memories -Theme 1-A light shines on in the darkness-a memory of a bright past, flickered to life.As I lay buried for so long here,in the false tranquility of this endless scenery,a soft voice calls to me from across the void."Wake up!"Through day and night, light and darkness,the stars sing lullabies of love and loss to meand in the blink of an eye, I have forgotten:Who is this person I have become?Truth, falsehood - falsehood, truth-the gravity of the situationhas been lost to the tides of verbal dictation.Like lilting shadows under the light of the stars,the memories of that life slip through my graspand I feel myself surrendering to this unbiased fate.With one hand outstretched before me,I reach out to capture the things that I once knew,but like wisps of smoke,they vanish through my fingers before I can touch them.It is an effort as futileas trying to catch the moonlight.Companionship, love, togetherness, peace-the words are thrown about so oftenthat their meaning has been du
Todo contigo, o nada con nadieNadie puede amar como amamos nosotros, nadie sufre como sufrimos nosotros.Y es precisamente por eso, la sensación de tener todo lo tuyo, y de que tú tengas todo lo mío, lo que me provoca el miedo de sentirme aún más solo, vaciando incluso mi orgullo tan necio.Y me gusta saber que eres mía, y que puedo buscarte para mirarte de frente; con caricias llenas de incendios; con el mar de mis pensamientos hecho un espacio infinito donde tu alma se funda con la mía.Dicen que antes de morir ves pasar en un instante los momentos más significativos de tu vida. Intentaré alejar todos esos recuerdos, esos pensamientos, ese dulce sufrimiento, para quedarme solamente contigo, hasta ir perdiendo poco a poco nuestros frágiles corazones.Pero… de repente… lo entiendo: es inútil, imposible.Te veré pasar por algún rincón de la ciudad, lejos de mí, de mí vida y de mis recuerdos.Porque vivo animado y a la vez con
Funny How it Works OutI wanted to be his SunMaking his bright daysEven brighterBut I became his MoonShiningEven on the darkest of his nights
you're the only wishing well I've ever believed inOpen your mouth and let me drop coinsplip plip plopstraight down your throat.I'll press my wishes to your lipsand maybe they'll come true.
It's Like Poisoni never likedthe taste of cigarettesuntil i tasted themon your lips

MoondanceJust you and I in the garden,dancing under a full moon.I see the love in your eyes...reflected in the moonlight.It's a marvelous night for us--just you and I in the moonlight.Nary a care in the worldas the music plays soft and low.We twirl and shuffle in the night,lost in the rapture of each other.Just you and I, myself and you...nothing else to care about now.We dance on past midenight,not taking notice of the time.I hold you close and kiss you,feeling your breath so soft.It's a night for a moondance,and the dance continues on.Come the dawn, we mightstill be dancing by ourselves.--RKJ
Us Against The World...It's us against the world, my dear.Just you and I in a sea of scorn.They do not understand our love...and they can't understand, they hate.You were meant for me, and I for you.yet others cannot see it that way.They don't wan't happiness like us, dear...but in their hatred lays their own downfall.It's us against the world, my lover.Just you and I...that's how it must be.You never have to worry about me...I'm there to hold you close, win or lose.Never forget that our love lets us live.If they can't see that...then we won't forgive.It's us against the world, forevermore--fighting the world for our rightful place here.--RKJ
love and landmarksyou broke down today,sketching your fears onyellowed folds of a blank canvascharcoal smudges and blood stainsmasked by peeling brush strokes.but what scared me the mostthe colors of your fears and dreamsnaked and permanent,before my eyes in watercolor,etching out your heart.and I wasn't sureI wanted your confession.I poured vodka againstthe grain and the pastelsbled into the city streets.I went home and mappedthe letters of my love withink and paper dotted withsalted tears and hollow breath.and if i had let you lean on methe same way I've leaned on you,a million times, maybe, more,i would have realizedour fears were the same.I'm building a wall,burying lost hopes and dreamsand youinside the bricks and groutjust like china.
The EndHello Darkness, my old friend,We're reunited at the end,It seems I'm out of days to come,Witnessed my last setting sun,Is the world a better place?For receiving my embrace...Or is it left in disarray?My parting gift, a price to pay...
Just Not TodaySo much turmoiland so much pain;this love is likewalking in the rain.I dreamt that youfinally looked my way.You will love me-just not today.
