What I'm Reaching For...I raise my face and let the ribbons come undone.
The mask I wear falls with the sun.
Night air is sweet and cool;
Far more pleasant than the porcelain so cruel.
Here where a gentle wind blows across my skin,
And the demons of my past are held within,
I am able to breathe for the first time in months.
When I open my eyes, my heart sees what it wants
All of those sparkling stars, so far out of my reach.
They remind me of your eyes, twice the distance, each.
April Showers and May FlowersDo you ever stop and wonder what is behind the laugh?
Have you ever noticed that my eyes are hollow?
Did you know that my pain is covered by my wrath?
Because the pain is hard to swallow.
The screams could not be contained.
And I had given up.
But then you walked away.
And the tears finally fell.
