The Lost City
Wrapped in chains of foliage
And bathed in dull flashes of sun
A city that all of time forgot
Stands somewhere in the world
Hiding from us in plain sight
Waiting for someone to come along
And learn the secrets it holds
But no one ever shows up
Banished from civilization
The lost city always sleeps
Only a new life could break
This cruel spell of dormancy
Even then there's no guarantee
That the curse can be lifted
All the city's buildings
Sit cloaked in a veil of dust
Where echoes once rebounded
Now lives a deafening silence
The city is still alive
But if you looked at it
You could see it slowly dying
But the death day will never come
Banished from civilization
The lost city always sleeps
Only a new life could break
This cruel spell of dormancy
Even then there's no guarantee
That the curse can be lifted
The spell will never break
The curse will never lift
The spell will never lift
The curse will never break
If you ever find the city
Stay away, stay away

Special
Your words caused a rush of joy
To run through every inch of my body
It was a sensation I never experienced before
And instead of forcing myself to run away
I decided to stay and let happiness blossom
I knew there was a chance I'd get hurt
But I threw caution to the wind
And took a chance for you
No matter how this ends
I'm not gonna deny myself
The satisfaction that comes
From bonding with someone new
Or the delicate hope that appears
When you find something so right
And you want it to last
There's something special about you
That my invisible barriers can't block
There's something special about you
That shoots straight to the heart
And coaxes it open to receive love
There's something special about you
That makes me feel special, too
Days have passed and we still talk
Every opportunity that we get
And every time we do my hope grows
I've been hurt plenty of times
But you make me forget about that
I know full well that I'm not in the clear
Things can sour at any given second
But I'm goi

Still There
I was sitting by the lake one Sunday afternoon
Watching the stones I threw skip across the water
I was no more than ten, a kid blissfully unaware
Of what the future would have in store for me
An independent soul, I always preferred my own company
But then you came out of the blue and sat by my side
You picked up a stone and joined in my silly game
Then you turned to me with the biggest smile I'd ever seen
And deep down I could feel my whole world change
It's been years since that first meeting
But every detail feels fresh in my mind
Like it just happened, Like I was still there
Some moments leave a lasting impression
That can't be forgotten no matter what you do
And some people still walk alongside us
Even though they are no longer here
Someway, somehow they're still there
Lying on a blanket under the night sky
Watching the shooting stars fly by
We were in the prime of our happiness
Telling each other our shared stories
Time was passing at a rapid pace
But we were too preoccupied to ca

Moth
Before you came along and crossed my path
I believed love was too good for me
Little did I know I'd soon stray from the tracks
Of the destiny I thought was assigned to me
Life can drastically change in a mere second
But I never knew how true that was until now
I am a moth drawn to the flame of your desire
It would be in my best interest to keep myself away
Cause I'll be engulfed the second I get too close
But I want your fire to wash all over my skin
I want it to seep below the surface and set my heart alight
You gave me that look and it was all over
You had me pining and you clearly knew it
I tried my best to have some self control
But you refused to let me ignore how I felt
I wasn't going to be the one that got away
You made sure of that
I am a moth drawn to the flame of your desire
It would be in my best interest to keep myself away
Cause I'll be engulfed the second I get too close
But I want your fire to wash all over my skin
I want it to seep below the surface and set my heart ali

Citadel/The Hollow Forest
[I: Citadel]
When it all comes crashing down
When I've burnt the final bridge
I still have my safe space
Away from the enraged crowd
At the very top of the citadel
Where no one can touch me
But how long will it be
Before the citadel around me
Comes crashing down?
[II: The Hollow Forest]
I've walked a million steps
And I'll walk a million more
Until the city I once called home
Is nothing but a distant memory
Only then will I fully disappear
From the records they possess
And set myself free
All the pain I left in my wake
Is a burden they should not bare
So off I go to the fabled place
Where names and identities die
And the whiteness consumes all
In the hollow forest, time stands still
The cold emptiness wraps itself around
Those who enter like a massive cocoon
Once you're in, it will never let you go
You'll metamorphosize into a wraith
And explore the hollow forest forever
Even though there is nothing to see
Every image their minds had of me
Will transform into a blank tablet

Acquaintance
I went into this without expectations
So why do I wish something more developed?
I went into this knowing it would end
So why am I upset now that we're done?
I went into this wanting to avoid feelings
So why did I catch feelings for you?
What you want isn't always what you get
So make sure to expect the unexpected
If you want to avoid getting hurt
I thought that I had the upper hand on myself
I wasn't going to let you mess with my heart
Cause I knew the second I fell, it'd be game over
I was never in control, I never held the power
You made me think what we had was true romance
But I wasn't a lover, I was barely an acquaintance
I went from the lofty highs of cloud nine
To the cavernous lows of harsh reality
And now I'm lying on the cold, hard ground
Trying to find the strength to get up
But my body just wants to stay here
And deep down, so do I
I thought that I had the upper hand on myself
I wasn't going to let you mess with my heart
Cause I knew the second I fell, it'd be game over

Ophelia's Suicide
[Intro]
A young girl under the spell of love
Ready to marry her true soulmate
An ivory dress studded with gold
Fit for the most regal of queens
A white chapel with columns of marble
Draped in countless flower garlands
It was called the wedding of the century
Sadly it wasn't meant to happen
He told me he loved me like no other
I was the apple of his eye, his precious jewel
The only girl worth turning into a bride
I should have known it was an elaborate lie
I was nothing more than a challenge to conquer
As soon as he captured my heart, it was all over
Oh Ophelia, why'd you let this happen?
You let a thief trick you into thinking
He was different from all the others
Oh Ophelia, why'd you let this happen?
You fell for a thief's sweet talking
And let him steal your delicate flower
You made yourself believe that you saw
An upstanding gentleman and sincere lover
Whenever the two of you spent time together
It took him leaving for that pleasing image
Ingrained in your mind to finally die

(Don't get lost)
(Don't get lost)
(Don't get lost)
(Don't get lost)
A careless wanderer on the move
Unsure about my place in the world
Everyone else sees their surroundings
Through a dull pastel filter
While I see everything around me
As an explosion of electric neon colors
But they tell me I'm wrong
That I need correction, I need discipline
What I really need is a change of scenery
Some place where I can just be me
If only I could find an opening
A portal to a parallel universe
Alas that's merely a pipe dream
That's never going to come true

Wake up face down in a bed of flowers
Must have hit my head, nothing looks familiar
A white rabbit stops and stares me down
"Silly child, this is your home!" He bellows.
He runs off and I follow in hot pursuit
Before I know it I've lost him
I feel two pairs of arms grab me
And toss me onto a long, white linen table
I try to move but my body's frozen solid

Burned Your Letters
Sitting in the parlor
Waiting for a special someone
Who's never gonna show up
Trying my best to stay hopeful
Instead of coming undone
But I can feel myself sinking
Back into that depressed state
I really should get going
Before it gets late
I gave you everything I had
And got nothing in return
Time and again you promised
You'd change your ways
One of many promises
You couldn't bother to keep
I burned all your letters
Now there's nothing that remains
Of the past we once shared
I burned all your letters
Put a stop to the cruel mind games
I used to make myself play
Now I can finally crack a smile
And look forward to better days
After I started ignoring
Your recycled messages
You came knocking at my door
Begging me to take you back
The old me would have said yes
And welcomed you with open arms
But unfortunately for you
I did the one thing you never could
I changed my ways for the better
And got over you for good
I burned all your letters
Now there's nothing that remains

What The Light Reveals
Everyone is wearing me out
They run me into the ground so much
It's bound to swallow me whole
And I don't know if I can save myself
Or if I even want to escape the grave
They've been digging for me
But deep down I know I should
There's a light in the dark
That's calling out to me
There's a light in the dark
That's calling out to me
And I can't resist it
Somewhere inside my heart
The chains have begun to rust
The emotions I bottled up
Are all running amok
But I couldn't care less
Cause it feels so, so good
There's a light in the dark
That's calling out to me
There's a light in the dark
That's calling out to me
And I can't resist it
Said, I can't resist it
No, I can't resist it
I can't resist it
I can't resist it
I can't resist it
Anymore
So I look through the light
And a tear starts to fall
Cause what the light has revealed
Is the strength to press forward
After being torn down time and again
Turns out I had it in me all along
There's a light in the dark
That's calling out to me
There's

Conductor
My hands are cold to the touch
My palms are stiff and white
They're begging for warmth
But the blood won't flow through
I try to break through the numbness
But I feel nothing when I touch you
We used to revive and energize each other
After long days of dealing with the outside world
Now we just leave each other tired and empty
It's like we're dead but we're still breathing
We're two conductors that have lost the connection
But unlike before, this time I fear it's permanent
The bolt of lightning that flashed
Every time we came into contact
Has become a few stuttering sparks
The raging wildfire that once coursed
Through my veins to every inch of my body
Has weakened into the dullest of flames
We used to revive and energize each other
After long days of dealing with the outside world
Now we just leave each other tired and empty
It's like we're dead but we're still breathing
We're two conductors that have lost the connection

Doctor's Office
You took me for a walk down a street
I had seen a thousand times before
And on that street stands a building
That houses a certain doctor's office
Where people go to talk about issues
Plaguing their once clear minds
You knew I tried to go there
On a number of different occasions
But couldn't reach it on my own
So you offered to accompany me
And I gladly accepted your offer
Unaware of your real intentions
I thought you had my back
I thought we were friends
I bought the lie until the end
When I saw your true colors
And realized it was all pretend
Once we got inside the building
I filled out all of the forms
And waited for my name to be called
When the lady came out of the door
You turned to me and said I would be ok
So off I went to see the doctor
Not knowing that when I returned
My life would be changed forever
I thought you had my back
I thought we were friends
I bought the lie until the end
When I saw your true colors
And realized it was all pretend
After I answered all the doctor's q

Temporary
Finding someone just to lose them soon after
Has become a common occurrence in my life
And though I try my best to break the cycle
All my efforts seem to be in vain
It's enough to make you want to give up
Any hope for a different outcome
I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who is the polar opposite of all the others
But I still hold out hope that I'll find them
Even though all I've done is suffer
They're here one second and gone the next
It's almost like they don't even exist
Why can't these good things ever last?
Will my future always be a retread of the past?
This has all become too familiar for me
I want to break from the ordinary
I want a love that isn't temporary
Keeping a positive outlook is easier said than done
Just when all the storm clouds start to disappear
Someone goes and leaves my heart torn once again
Eliminating any chance for the skies to remain clear
I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who will be the opposite of all the others
But I still hold out

Lulled into the siren’s lair
I stole tongues from my past-
Trailing down sea scrolls
And round table family gatherings-
Sinking to the bottom of the bannister
Of a Fibonacci spiral
Where willow trees wept
oily music notes-
I found you in their song.
The layers of dreaming
tore your face open
in my years of forgetfulness-
I had built empires in my mind
where mere villages were before-
and I buried you alive
deep inside
my wrinkled hermit heart.

Vampire
“Are you going to jump?”
Her breath soothed the frostbite on his ear, but only for a moment. The white churn of the river drove white static up into the salt grimed air. Fishermen shrieked to ghosts of their fair prices, yet a void had risen up around them and silenced the city.
Mist clung to his undefended eyelashes. Slashing sideways.
“No. Are you?”
Drip. Drop.
He imagined his neck cracking the layer of ice as he turned. He wanted to see her eyes. All that was visible in the fog were tendrils of auburn hair and they hissed forlornly at him in the whiplash wind.
“Only if you draw my face first.” Red lips proposed.
“Do I know you?”
Red flags waved along snowmelt smiles. It was slippery stepping on the warm stuck rail- the anatomy of his pale throat exposed in the fog. Tilting red.
Drip.
Drop.

Sore feet

Dawdling damages
In glum gutted purples
Of too far too fast

Shifting through memories on replay
Winding brighter

And fingers like smoke breathe

Where even the little minnows
quench apocalyptic wishes in their dreams
...when the truth is a stagnate nightmare.

Guide Me - Beguile Me
Tasting dark symbols
She twists upon ribbons
Of swerving gazes
And unquiet minds
A superimposition of time-greyed lips
Gravel rolling in the agony of disuse
Blue eyes sear the ceiling
Soul strings expanding fingers
Towards center stage
Grasped in a gentle insolence
She lays her morals upon the tightrope
Of that patronizing smile
She fears is not her own
Fault lines linger in the ground’s reflection
Shadows and apparitions
The other side of the crimson velvet
Spirals her nerve endings
Towards contorted helixes
Of concave lenses
And scripted truths  
Sightless-
She smiles.

Wrapped in chains of foliage
And bathed in dull flashes of sun
A city that all of time forgot
Stands somewhere in the world
Hiding from us in plain sight
Waiting for someone to come along
And learn the secrets it holds
But no one ever shows up

Banished from civilization
The lost city always sleeps
Only a new life could break
This cruel spell of dormancy
Even then there's no guarantee
That the curse can be lifted

All the city's buildings
Sit cloaked in a veil of dust
Where echoes once rebounded
Now lives a deafening silence
The city is still alive
But if you looked at it
You could see it slowly dying
But the death day will never come

Banished from civilization
The lost city always sleeps
Only a new life could break
This cruel spell of dormancy
Even then there's no guarantee
That the curse can be lifted

The spell will never break
The curse will never lift
The spell will never lift
The curse will never break

If you ever find the city
Stay away, stay away
Your words caused a rush of joy
To run through every inch of my body
It was a sensation I never experienced before
And instead of forcing myself to run away
I decided to stay and let happiness blossom
I knew there was a chance I'd get hurt
But I threw caution to the wind
And took a chance for you

No matter how this ends
I'm not gonna deny myself
The satisfaction that comes
From bonding with someone new
Or the delicate hope that appears
When you find something so right
And you want it to last

There's something special about you
That my invisible barriers can't block
There's something special about you
That shoots straight to the heart
And coaxes it open to receive love
There's something special about you
That makes me feel special, too

Days have passed and we still talk
Every opportunity that we get
And every time we do my hope grows
I've been hurt plenty of times
But you make me forget about that
I know full well that I'm not in the clear
Things can sour at any given second
But I'm going to live moment to moment
And let this develop however it wants to

No matter how this ends
I'm not gonna deny myself
The satisfaction that comes
From bonding with someone new
Or the delicate hope that appears
When you find something so right
And you want it to last

There's something special about you
That my invisible barriers can't block
There's something special about you
That shoots straight to the heart
And coaxes it open so it can receive love
There's something special about you
That makes me feel special, too

Everything seems to be going so well
But out of nowhere your messages stop
And I start blaming myself
Did I do something wrong?
Was it something I said?
Then I start to regret my decision
To let someone win me over
I should have shut down that joy
You made me feel as soon as it appeared
But then I remember the promise I made to myself
No matters how this ends, don't deny yourself
Of the happiness that comes from finding someone new
Or just how special they make you feel

There was something special about you
That my invisible barriers couldn't block
Something special that shot straight to the heart
That made it eager to open up and receive love
There was something special about you
That made me feel special, too
But now I see the cold, hard truth
There was nothing special about you
You're just like all the others who've hurt me
But at the same time, I have to thank you
For making me realize that I am special
And now I can see that I've always been
And always will be special
Even without you here to remind me
Special
More so than any of the other "recent" pieces I've written, this is definitely the most personal. Some of the others ones have taken from how I was feeling at certain moments and warped that into something different. Some other ones were not about me at all. That is not the case here. Everything is taken directly from something that's happened in the past few days. It does have a sad twist but I like to think that the core message is still incredibly positive. Enjoy.

I was sitting by the lake one Sunday afternoon
Watching the stones I threw skip across the water
I was no more than ten, a kid blissfully unaware
Of what the future would have in store for me
An independent soul, I always preferred my own company
But then you came out of the blue and sat by my side
You picked up a stone and joined in my silly game
Then you turned to me with the biggest smile I'd ever seen
And deep down I could feel my whole world change

It's been years since that first meeting
But every detail feels fresh in my mind
Like it just happened, Like I was still there

Some moments leave a lasting impression
That can't be forgotten no matter what you do
And some people still walk alongside us
Even though they are no longer here
Someway, somehow they're still there

Lying on a blanket under the night sky
Watching the shooting stars fly by
We were in the prime of our happiness
Telling each other our shared stories
Time was passing at a rapid pace
But we were too preoccupied to care
Then all of a sudden you took my hand in yours
And flashed the biggest smile I've ever seen
It was real life but it felt like a dream

It's been years since that wonderful night
But every detail feels fresh in my mind
Like it just happened, Like I was still there

Some moments leave a lasting impression
That can't be forgotten no matter what you do
And some people still walk alongside us
Even though they are no longer here
Someway, somehow they're still there

It was Wednesday morning and I was home
Wrapping up a gift I bought for you
It was meant to be the first step towards
A brand new life that I wanted us to share
That's when I heard a knock at the door
I thought it was you so I hid any clues
But when I went and opened the door
It wasn't you that was standing there before me
All that was waiting for me was some unexpected news
I lost all composure the second I heard it
And fell to my knees faster than speeding bullet

It's been years since that fateful moment
When all I ever knew shattered right before me
But every detail feels fresh in my mind
Like it just happened, Like I was still there

Today is another warm spring day
But to me it feels like the harshest of winter nights
Everything's been upside down since you went away
And it doesn't help that I'm stuck sitting here
Listening to a man recount every moment we shared
It feels like they all happened yesterday
As if I was still there, right next to you
Each word he says feels like a blade slitting my heart
I'm trying my best to not let myself fall apart
But I can't stop questioning why it turned out like this
And as each and every memory flashes before my eyes
I can't help but think the same thing every time,
"I wish I was still there."

It's been years since it all went down
And though I tried to move on with life
The memories followed me wherever I went
Every detail still feels fresh in my mind
Like it just happened, Like I was still there

Some moments leave a lasting impression
That can't be forgotten no matter what you do
And the people who shared them with us
Remain a strong presence in our lives
Even though they are no longer here
Someway, somehow they're still there
Before you came along and crossed my path
I believed love was too good for me
Little did I know I'd soon stray from the tracks
Of the destiny I thought was assigned to me
Life can drastically change in a mere second
But I never knew how true that was until now

I am a moth drawn to the flame of your desire
It would be in my best interest to keep myself away
Cause I'll be engulfed the second I get too close
But I want your fire to wash all over my skin
I want it to seep below the surface and set my heart alight

You gave me that look and it was all over
You had me pining and you clearly knew it
I tried my best to have some self control
But you refused to let me ignore how I felt
I wasn't going to be the one that got away
You made sure of that

I am a moth drawn to the flame of your desire
It would be in my best interest to keep myself away
Cause I'll be engulfed the second I get too close
But I want your fire to wash all over my skin
I want it to seep below the surface and set my heart alight

I used to enjoy wandering this land all alone
With no intention of ever settling down
But there's some kind of magical force
That drives me into your open arms
And makes them feel like home

I am a moth drawn to the flame of your desire
It would be in my best interest to keep myself away
Cause I'll be engulfed the second I get too close
But I want your fire to wash all over my skin
I want it to seep below the surface and set my heart alight

If I burn, let me burn
The fire will make me pure
If I burn, let me burn
The fire will make me pure
If I burn, let me burn
If I burn, let me burn
If I burn, let me burn
I want to be pure

I once wandered this land all alone
But that was before I found you
Before I found home
[I: Citadel]

When it all comes crashing down
When I've burnt the final bridge
I still have my safe space
Away from the enraged crowd
At the very top of the citadel
Where no one can touch me
But how long will it be
Before the citadel around me
Comes crashing down?

[II: The Hollow Forest]

I've walked a million steps
And I'll walk a million more
Until the city I once called home
Is nothing but a distant memory
Only then will I fully disappear
From the records they possess
And set myself free

All the pain I left in my wake
Is a burden they should not bare
So off I go to the fabled place
Where names and identities die
And the whiteness consumes all

In the hollow forest, time stands still
The cold emptiness wraps itself around
Those who enter like a massive cocoon
Once you're in, it will never let you go
You'll metamorphosize into a wraith
And explore the hollow forest forever
Even though there is nothing to see

Every image their minds had of me
Will transform into a blank tablet
Before they can realize what's happened
Then those tablets will be filled
With new people and experiences
It'll be like I never existed

In the hollow forest, time stands still
The cold emptiness wraps itself around
Those who enter like a massive cocoon
Once you're in, it will never let you go
You'll metamorphosize into a wraith
And explore the hollow forest forever
Even though there is nothing to see

The entrance stands before me
It's time to take one final breath
And let the process begin
I reach out my hand to touch it
And see it vanish before my eyes
I walk in and let the whiteness
Wash all over me, wash all over me

I feel my exterior dissolve
And then quickly reassemble
As my mind starts to white out
My endless wandering
In the hollow forest
Will soon begin
