High As A Kite, Unconditionally I once flew a kite that was gifted to me The first of nothing else ever did I see I know not how it came to be but he gave that kite to me A fathers gift or a barters deal I do not see Not for any other reason that it could be That means nothing to me I set that kite myself alone Step by step I tried to see The image That my gift would fly High as a kite In me I watched that kite dip and dive I yelled, dad look and see As if wings sprouted from my back It carried me I floated high to the sky Surely he must see A child wanting for nothing but love High as a kite, Unconditionally Ax

Dreams All the wants and desires never had Written and played in songs to have To hold those dreams that sting so bad Travel beyond the mind to inspire Release the past then let unwind Dreams like stars streak by on fire Names and legacy’s etched in stone Monuments put to honour the bold Died for freedom, our dreams atone Feeling, just the feeling of wanting in lust To fuck without limits but shed no blood In dreams that end, with a nut to bust Falling in love with the one, the one Made up in dreams as a hit and run Stunned with an ending left undone Sunshine smiles on a cloudless day Every day of the week, including Monday It never rains when happy dreams play Crying inside from a world filled violence Trapped in dreams of a insane asylum Left with scars, a melancholy silence Ax

Dream After Dreams The first time I saw her face I fell Fell into a feeling that petrified Petrified, holding me still Still my heart pounded, the echo swelled Swelled my head leaving me puzzled Puzzled by this charge surging through Through, every nerve now tingling limbs Limbs, begin to twitch, urging steps Steps, towards courage in this moment Moment to speak, to greet, to meet Meet, but for a second that would hold Hold for an eternity if I didn’t say Say, if I may, unless otherwise engaged Engaged to decline, to dine, if you will Will, this hearts beating wish to reset Reset my night, in the company of you You, caused me to stop Stop she said, tilting her head, wide eyes Eyes that dug deep into mine Mine fell in a gaze, careful to hear Hear, her voice as I crossed my fingers Fingers clench, tearing at the seams Seams of a pillow case, embracing a dream Dream after dreams, a reoccurring dream Ax

Nightly Fate Setting sun comes with a fiery glow Faster faster the horizon darkens slow How the pain grows as light fades to go Shades of blue, a line across the sky Turns darkest at a point most high Where evil lurks in wait to fly The hour comes, howls through the air White knuckle fisting, gloom and glare Sending shivers, echoes tingling hair Blowing wind, buzzing the ears The demon within appears A tornado, shadows, spinning fears Ghostly white, dressed in black Hooded and cloaked front to back Leading an army of ghouls on attack Call the Father, Son and Spirit to dance The good and meek do not have a chance Without sword, shield and lance Pulling and groping, sinking down Hands like branches, vines up from the ground Pinned and crushing, lungs begin to drown The anxiety flares, it starts to boil The ache inside strained from toil Left vs Right like vinegar and oil A battle that thrives in the heat of night Sleepless, left weak, pray to see the light East beyond peaks, breaches with delight Songs sung by birds awakening call Lifting souls from a beaten fall To honour a new days rise for all The demon within retreats in wait For the sun to set behind heavens gate And unleash the horrors nightly fate Ax
