Black Hole

I want to be dangerous, sexy, addictive
Thigh high on cherry bubblegum and red lipstick
Knee deep in my man’s soul
Knee deep in that black hole
Knee deep in that sweet coal
Burning like the seed of that night
When I planted my body, oh so tight
On the lap of my conscious
When I’d never looked so beautiful 

Said the part of me that wants to die

Flight

When I was five years old I knew I wanted you
I was a baby and I knew who you were
I just didn't know anything about you
So I stumbled my way through the ages
I stumbled my way through

When I was five years old I didn't know how to brush my hair
It was too much, always tangled, always too curly
Always in my face, always in the way
Funny how some things never change
Only now when I brush my hair you stare at me
And wonder how such a melancholy baby landed at your feet
Wonder how we both got here
And how my hair hasn't swallowed you up already

But little do you know, it already has
And that is why you live in my head with the rest of my dreams
Caressing my body at night while I sleep

August

It's funny to think you're somewhere out there in the world
Living a life without me
I'm somewhere out there too, I just don't know where
But I keep trying to find you
I don't know why but I just keep trying to find you
And it's raining and the only light I have
Is when other lovers decide to kiss
And lightning strikes
It's raining so loud I can't hear anything, I just keep going
I don't know where, I just keep going
Hoping that you will just keep going too
And we will find each other out there somewhere

Dreamcatcher

These days that I'm spending way out in the void
Are the most profound tastes of reality
For there is nothing out here but a silhouette of my body
That's clear like my skin
And memories of you that I made up
About how warm your chest would feel on my back
And how long your legs would wrap around me
For what seems like all of eternity, just keeping me safe

Underbelly

The most haunting thing you ever said to me was "come."
It drained out of your mouth, taking parts of your body with it
Planting itself inside of me
The idea as a whole fresh thought sits on my chest and waits
Waits for me to fall asleep, to keep haunting my dreams
To keep reminding me that it and all of my fears
Are closer to me than you are

In a Sea With a Dolphin

The skys would scream if they knew what I knew
That beauty this beautiful can't exist in two
I know a few things but only one is true
There is only one beauty and it is truly you

When I lay in my bed and pretend it's your room
The hallway's footsteps are from your shoes
And I hold my own chest as the lights start to loom
Another night I hope you'll be here soon

Angels

There are so many things I want to do in my lifetime
But none of them can ever amount
To how much love I want to make with you

I dream of you at night
To make time fly with me
I travel a thousand miles away
To watch you breath in and out
To watch you breath me into your chest
As we coexist in a dreamy state
Floating above your sleeping body

January

At some point you just became more important
Than the rest of the world
Everything seems so tiny compared to your smile
It's amazing how skyscrapers become blades of grass
When I'm looking up at you

There are no words for this
Just ships and ships coming back and forth
From heaven back down to earth
Slowly handing me more of you

Night

Your hands like ice pressed against your bedroom window
Frozen in time waiting for me
Breathing in my hair with the wind
Fantasizing about my lips, about my legs
Come back to reality with me, my sweet baby
I will come for you in this lifetime
As I will in my next, until time stops it is my dream to find you
I am just waiting for the blue light petals to bloom
To light my way across the moon
To bring my body closer to you

Hungry Ghosts

In a perfect setting someone would call to me from beyond the grave and tell me everything was ok, someone that knew me for me and not who I pretend to be. Someone ten thousand years older than me, who knew me before I was born, who knew the Earth before it knew how to count, when time didn't exist. There was only day and night, and hours between time when you would make love to your better half and mourn the death of yesterday.
