crooked path

been walking down this path
living life all the way
obstacles that come along
create this crooked path
crooked life to live
what i do on this path
is all my own
my own life to live
to figure out
where this crooked path leads
leading past the corrupt
leading past despair
into the turmoil
and tumultuous times
this crooked path does lead
where i don’t know
but i shall remain
walking this path
of life
this crooked path of life
down this path

where is this

the lights
the sounds
the stars
where is this
the center of everything
yet so far removed
who is that
oh, i don’t know

the pictures
the smells
the taste
where is this
center of it all
and i’m in the middle
who am i
just a face in the crowd

my escape

how i get away
to another world
my escape
my drug of choice
pure joy
pure happiness
although it’s hard to believe
hard to find
don’t lose them when you do
the feeling you love
when nothing else matters
when no one is around
pure and simple
this feeling can’t be beat
i have to get away
my escape
from the pain
the hurt
the trauma
the drama
no more
my escape

worst thing

meeting you is the worst thing for me
i could do without
i should do without
i don’t need someone to love
i have myself
that is all i need
i can make myself happy
i can feel joy
i can feel happiness
meeting you
makes me wonder
you seem so right
you so wrong
i love you so much
but i know you’re the worst thing for me
can’t get you out of my mind
thoughts always come back to you
to me
to us and what could be
what could be i sit and think
could i be happy
could you be the one
could i love you
could you love me
could it be
we’re meant to see
but i think you’re the worst thing for me
as much as i care and long
for you to be there
i can’t help but think
how it would be
without you in my life
what if i hadn’t met you
what if i didn’t see
that you’re the worst thing for me
i love you
to love me
to love you
and the future
what a view
it could be
even though
you’re the worst thing for me

i am

i am
such simple words
such profound meaning
i am simple
i am strong
i am loving
i am caring
i am alone
i am seeking
i am asking
i am
such simple words
so profound
i am me
i am happy
i am sad
i am joy
i am peace
i am love
i am alive
i am
so profoundly
simple words

i’m addicted

to taste
to touch
to feel
get addicted
to the good
to love
it feels so good
high above
to be loved
to feel loved
just to love
get addicted
in the joy
this ecstasy
pure and simple
i can’t believe
i’m addicted

no more

i’m done
no more
too much pain
too many tears
too much to deal
too many hurts
i don’t want
no more drama
the simple life
with simple things
simple friends
simple loves
no more
of the pain
of the tears
of the hurt
no more drama
not in my life
i’m done
put it all away
move on to better
no more drama
in my life

together again

soon we’ll be
together again
in this place
no separation
no pain
all will be well
when life stands still
together again
i see you high above
looking down on me
still caring
and loving
from somewhere greater
together again
soon we’ll be


i long for
i’ve searched for
i’m beginning to see
you make me happy
make me smile
when i think of you
you are everything

i’ve waited for so long
to find this
to be truly happy
with everything
to feel loved
and just to love
you came along
you are everything
