Bellboy

My smile is a frown because I hang upside down. I am the very big bell of a very small town. I am flesh and not metal so you won’t get a ring. Pull my rope and I’ll sing for as long as I swing. I can’t hold a note and my songs are just screams. My nightmares are real as opposed to bad dreams. One day I will break and so will my face. My fake smile will no longer be frozen in place.

Red Milk

Every day is a battle. I cry and die with each bite. I hear no hiss or no rattle. Each day is dark like each night. I cannot see my own red. I feel it flow from each vein. I keep the leeches well fed. I must taste like sugar cane. They feed like I am their mother. My red is nourishing milk. The pain hurts like no other. I am trapped in spun silk. I am covered with leeches and every one is stuck on. They will feed off of me until their milk is all gone.

Fire

We are here due to the need. We have blood so we can bleed. Go ahead and have your fun. All I want is to be done. We are here to become pure. We are diseased and seek the cure. The truth is clear once it is learned. We want the warmth but will be burned. We wish to hold that fierce bright light. We grasp the fire with our sight. My soul found out fire could roast. I had to scrape it like burnt toast. We must leave fire alone. I feel the cold in every bone. I will freeze before I burn. You must decide when comes your turn.

The Running Man

I run for the future but flee from the past. My running is slow and the future is fast. I am a runner who seeks to be free. I chase the future and the past chases me. I am serving my sentence for a horrible crime. I was framed by my soul and I am doing the hard time. I am in debt but do not even owe. I beg for a pardon but my past keeps saying no. I doubt that the future will ever be mine. If my past had been kind then all would be fine. I run from the past because it has great pain. I run for the future for my chance to be sane. I will run for the future even with my last breath. I will never be stopped unless tripped up by death.

Killers Of Love

There are killers of love like there are killers of life. They carve loving hearts with a jagged edge knife. They slice up the heart and roast it with fire. The heat cooks the meat and all love does expire. Protecting your heart is as easy as pie. Never falling in love means that no love can die. It may be extreme but it makes perfect sense. A heart without love is your only defense. Listen to someone whose heart has been burned. Love is a risk for all parties concerned. There are killers out there for whom your love would be prey. Guard your heart from the start and stay out of their way.

My Camel’s Back

You wish to break my camel’s back. Just keep your straw and start a stack. You keep your love, it hurts my heart. That makes two stacks that you can start. I need to heal from all your gifts. My camel moans each time he lifts. I always took all you could dish. You always give but are selfish. I have had all I can take. This is the end of a bad mistake. Really, it is the end of two. The second one was made by you. Your gifts have caused the loss of love. This is a gift from up above. I say goodbye for goodness’ sake. My camel’s back, you shall not break.

Daymares

My daydreams are nightmares. I sleep as each eye stares. My day is still night. I sleepwalk in sunlight. Being awake is no break from bad dreams in my mind. Why must I be punished when my heart is so kind? It must be my soul for my person is good. I try to love all that lives just like everyone should. It must be my soul, but what could it have done? The burden I bear is for three and not one. I am breaking my back as I carry this pain. I have hate for my soul, but I feel it in vain. I am paying for its sins and it had to have known. It chose me for this but could have left me alone. My soul stole my peace so now I have none. No man should pay for what his soul has done.

Your Love Left Me For Dead

Your love almost destroyed me. If you should see me, avoid me. You robbed me of decades then left me for dead. My wounds will not heal, they stay open instead. Your love is toxic for sure but I mistook it for pure. You took away my condition but happiness needs no cure. You will leave me alone like you left me before. Your key works no more and I am locking my door. You are out of my life and this is how you will stay. If you should see me, avoid me. You threw me away.

The Love You Save May Be My Own

I love you. I do. Believe it. It’s true. If you love me too, I can stop feeling blue. After all I have been through, joy seems overdue. I have suffered so long that joy’s gift will seem new. My heart broke in two. Your love would be glue. Tell me how you feel or, at least, give me a clue. You may need some days, take a lot or a few. Go ahead, clear your head and then tell me your view. I love you. I do. Believe it. It’s true. I could be reborn if your love I knew.

Save Your Day

I am here to save your day. Everything will be okay. Trust these eyes you cannot see. I tell no lies and charge no fee. What I know, I learned from pain. Each wrinkle made has scarred my brain.

I must have it, I must I must. Believe me, all will be just fine. Let me save your day like another saved mine.
