We All Need Love

Love and fear
Tangled again
Love like a home
We want to live in


Faith and courage
Shadows I’ve been chasing
I’m getting older
No time, to be wasting


It’s a hard life
Lessons I’ve been learning
All my mistakes
Silently burning


No matter what anyone says
We all need love
To whatever god you’re praying
Be kind to one another—-is all I’m saying


Happy endings
Ashes and sin
What we wish for 
Isn’t always what we’re given


Every days a dream
I’m letting go
Of being somebody
I no longer know


Brush strokes on a canvas
Water colors bleeding
A thousand winding roads
Back to me, they’re all leading


No matter what anyone says
We all need love
To whatever god you’re praying
Be Good to one another—-is all I’m saying

A Freak Like Me

Around her neck, she wore a silver chain and a locket
Then laughed and showed me, a rainbow hidden in her pocket


She said such strange things, you see
Cause she’s a poet, dreamer, she’s a freak like me


Long walks conversations in the dark
All about those friends and lovers, who left thorns in our hearts


With you, I share my secrets and my shame
And for me, I know you did the same


There’s no more me, there’s no more you
Now there’s just one, where there once was two


Is this how friends, learn to trust
Is this what makes lovers, give into lust


Word warriors, spilling ink and blood
Troubadour singing sad songs, sad songs of love


Soul soldier, silent defender
Now all my prayers and letters, returned to sender


Whispered these things, to my mystic girl
And for a moment, we shared a hidden world


There’s no me, there’s no more you
Now there’s just one, where there once was two
