TBT: Enchanted (With Every Breath) (2005)

I fell from the sky the moment I looked into her eyes
Eyes that could make me believe in heaven
Her smile opened the door to my heart
And I found myself falling in love with every breath

I lost myself in love the moment I looked into her eyes
Eyes like flowers that never die, that never fade
Her voice opened the door to my soul
And I found myself thinking of her with every breath

I felt at peace the moment I looked into her eyes
Eyes that could ease the confusion of my mind
Her touch opened the door to my dreams
And I found myself enchanted with every breath

Anniversary

I forget things ever existed
Stuff I should miss
I was there, I know I was there

I saw it when it was new

A memory can suddenly hurt
Pain I should dismiss
I was healed, I know I was healed

I was bleeding too

I’m keeping it in existence
I shouldn’t be carrying this
I was fooled, I know I was fooled

I was protecting you

TBT: Borderline Case (1998)

She cast her shadow
The face of five snakes
A majestic impression of lace
Dreams of a musc candle tree
Through a garden of passion
Leaving a house of organized matches
I awaken to the march of golden stars
Fit with pipes of wood
Falling into the dust
That rises to my death
As the tiles of life decay
Without the light of my reflection
In a time when I fell in love

The care for hearts is slow
When my desire for you aches
Curling sponge of broken space
Lets me switch to safety
Like a water chain reaction
The one my spirit snatches
When knives have scars
It's not like the children would
Take green paths of lust
Like the riddles in my breath
Thinking they might fade
Now a time of dedication
Like peace in a glove

Psychological Warfare

Forever fighting to find a connection
I knew I had to stay awake
To find the one that would save me
I knew I had to find a way

Forever troubled by my salvation
I found myself in a nightmare
To understand the one that would save me
I found myself accepting despair

TBT: He Went Further (2001)

After all those years
I'm still the same
Yet I can't find myself
In my dreams
Strangers everywhere
But I know I'm there

After all this time
I'm looking for fame
Maybe they'll help me
Find my self
Strangers everywhere
But I know I'm here

Struggling Angel

I do it for them
A body searches
For better love

Let me be defeated
Don’t let me suffer
Unless I deserve it

Love me, praise me
Show me memories
Of a better me

Let me be sufferer
Do it for them
Take me instead

TBT: Feelings of Elevation (2001)

Intensified tenderness
A consciousness of influence
I'm here with my birthright
Willing to advance

Feelings of elevation
Make good of independance
I'm here with my obligation
Fighting with admiration

Avoiding

He likes money
More than politics
Someone give him a weapon
He’s not hurting enough people

Have to start easy
Have to start with me

She likes them brave
More than respectful
Someone give her a mission
She’s not saving enough people

Have to finish easy
Have to finish with me

TBT: Fabulation (1998)

The light behind the dark
Pushes me forward with strength
To a sea of swollen water

Take the path of broken lies
He said
And of the truth we alter

From the loser's stand
End of line
That takes me down

The shadows, I remain
Drag me further
As I take my crown

Rosette

There’s nothing I can do
That would make you
Understand-
I knew I had to try
To stay strong
And lend a hand

Nothing you can say
That would make me
Regret-
I know I have to survive
One more day
And never forget

(c) Marc Noël 2017

November 09, 2017

TBT: Vein (2007)

I close on myself, regressed
The pain you left me with
Left scares that impress
They could never tell
That I never regretted
Yes, I had submitted
But that never meant defeated
If I could have shown you
The pain you left me with
Maybe you would just have
Broken my heart
And given me a fresh start
But now it's done
I wasn't the one
I close on myself, possessed

Volute

I got lost in thought
With my desires
The truth of love
And blind wishes
Make me dream
And lead my compassion

I got lost in thought
With my nightmares
The knowledge of hate
And lost secrets
Make me scream
And free my passion

TBT: Fair, Thee, The One (1999)

Fair, thee, the one he hates
Whilst he conjures his soul
The seal of his legacy
Raging for choice of goals

Free, thee, the sunset, scold
Thunder haze, begging energy
The gatherer of his name
Storms forth of mortality

Fair, thee, the one he loves
Ever-changing, some of shame
The one he feels greatly
Whilst never being the same

(c) Marc Noël 1999

The Bite

Lived the night
To survive my fears
Heard the noise
Of my tears
They fell hard
On the bloody floor
But hurt my dying heart
Even more
Still feel the sting
From the fangs
They entered me
Like strangling hands
If that one moment
Had been a nightmare
I’d be screaming
Instead of saying a prayer

TBT: She Appeared (2006)

She appeared
To be wearing black cloth
Strange because it moved like a breeze
Undulated
Across the swells of her chest
A single piece of heaven
Trapped there
Not even a ghost
Would think to snare

She appeared
To be looking at me
Strange eyes as they moved like a whip
Unfeathered
Across the whole of my lips
A single piece of heaven
Laid there
Not even saints
Would think to share

(c) Marc Noël 2006

Slight Deline

I only see
Confusing spirals
When all I want
Are straight lines
There was a sign
When I was fine
But I feel like
I’ve run out of time

I only see
Lost shadows
When all I want
Is focused light
There was a night
When I felt fright
But I feel like
I’m ready to fight

TBT: Night Fire (1998)

Night fire
Brings down the town
Enrages my soul
Looks with a frown

Burning smile
Speaks of my death
Erases my flesh
Steals my breath

Night fire
Walk me to hell
Take me in deeper
With sins I tell

Burning faces
Stare at my fashion
Laughs at my child
Kills with passion

Demystify

A thousand bridges
To my heart
I never felt like you had
A good start
To find the one love
That holds you true
There were so many
That fell apart

A thousand excuses
To my mind
I never felt like I had
A chance to explain
To find the one reason
That holds true
There were so many
Chances to blame

TBT: Offer (2011)

There's this pressure in my head
In terms of relief
It has little to offer
It creates monsters and glory
But never both together

There's this emptiness in my heart
In terms of satisfaction
It has little to offer
It dictates what I do
But never why I bother

There's this endlessness in my soul
In terms of peace
It has little to offer
It sends advice and regret
But never told me remember

Shame (Was Never An Enemy Of My Mistakes)

Living with my shame for an eternity
Thankfully courage was my serenity
There was nothing to be scared of
Nothing to fear inside my home

Dealing with my mistakes takes forever
Thankfully forgiving was more clever
There was nothing to be angry for
Nothing to hate outside my home

The Falling Tree

The tree that is my life holds
so many branches I cannot lift
so many leaves I cannot count
so many scars I cannot heal

The tree that is my life endures
so many storms I cannot evade
so many dry roots I cannot nourish
so many winters I cannot bare

The tree that is my life survives
so many birds will find a home
so many sunsets I will enjoy
so many years I will live on

Lasting Impression

Whatever you want me to see
That can change mistakes of my past
I may not fully understand it all
But if I must only look, I can do that

Whatever you want me to feel
That can change decisions of my future
I may not fully accept it all
But if I must only believe, I can do that

TBT: Yield (2012)

The eyes recognize
All the fantasies
The heart
Never wants to realize
You can explain
In vain
What the mind
Tries to hide
It won't be convinced
Unless you touch it
With your tears
With your fears-
You can explain
In vain
What the soul
Tries to preach
The heart
Never wanted to believe
All the fantasies
The eyes conceived

Sink

As I start
To explore my downfall
I have no idea
What I did wrong
What I thought
What I felt
How come
I couldn’t be strong

As I feel
Like I’m crawling
While everyone else
Speeds around me
What if I’m lost
What if I’m stuck
How come
I can’t be free

TBT: Fleeting Guardian (2003)

As I saw you passing by
I felt you had great power over me
Yet, I was but a stranger to you
Your gaze never stopped to ponder
The effects your eyes had on my soul
And how close you were
To holding my life in your hands

As I saw you leaving
I felt I had a destiny I didn't fulfill
Yet, I was but a stranger to you
My gaze never stopped to wonder
The emptiness I now felt in my heart
And how close I was
To giving my life to your faith

Vow

She promised
She would never
Do that again-

Tearing me asunder
Piece by piece

Forget that again-
He is slowly
Repeating my blunders
One by one

TBT: So, Wait (2008)

So,
are you going to tell me
the rest of the story?
I've been waiting for you
to tell me a lie
I'm not exactly sure what happened
Or why you've decided
I'm not worthy of the truth
But I still want to listen to your story
Maybe I'll find something
I've been missing,
So?


Wait,
I should have said sorry
when you first spoke to me
I've been praying for you
to look me in the eye
I'm not exactly an angel
But why have you decided
I'm not worthy of your respect
Or you still want to believe I'm free
Maybe you'll leave me again
What do you want me to do,
Wait?

Each Turn

Alternate-
Yes
No
Leave me anywhere I don’t want to be
Tell me lies I cannot hear or see
I’ll use my soul as bate

Activate-
On
Off
Leave anywhere you can’t stand to exist
Tell me why you cannot stay or tolerate
I’ll laugh at how you can’t accommodate

Create-
Build
Destroy
Leave nowhere you can’t stand to resist
Tell me why you cannot keep a secret or desire
I’ll find a way to make you dominate

Debate-
Right
Wrong
Leave us nowhere we don’t want to be
Tell me I cannot understand or forget
I’ll leave my oblivious children to fate

TBT: Mourn (2007)

Alone in the darkness
I heard my prayer
A whisper
Escaping from my lips
I felt a shiver
Run down to my toes
But saw nothing
That was not darkness

Lost in the emptiness
I searched my soul
A cry
Escaping from my heart
I understood
My reasons for forgetting
But mourned nothing
That was not emptiness

Fall Down (The Blaze)

I want to touch
The Universe
(It starts at the end of my fingertips)
Present it with the gift and curse
It gave me without knowing-
(No one controls the blaze)

I want to hear
The Universe
(It cries at the start of my day)
Present it with the meaning and tedium
It gave me without warning-
(Everyone forgets the blaze)

I want to destroy
The Universe
(It hints at laziness in every detail)
Present it with the love and hopelessness
It gave me without consideration-
(Someone will start the blaze)

TBT: Don't Look (2003)

Don't look at me when I cry
When I cry you will feel my sorrow
You will see why I remember
So little of what I know

Don't look at me when I fall
When I fall you will see me weak
You will see why I hide
So much of what I know

Don't look at me when I smile
When I smile you will feel my wonder
You will see why I honor
So little of what I do

Don't look at me when I laugh
When I laugh you will find me cruel
You will see why I respect
So much of what I do

TBT: Verdandi (2011)

Pushed to the limit
I want to leave
Don't let me mess around
Don't tell me to die

If you misunderstood
What my heart is offering
That's not my problem
Find your own reckoning

I never told you to be mine
You never understood my dreams
My hatred is not what you think
My poison is in my grace

If you misunderstood
What my lips are saying
That's not my problem
Find your own awakening

Empathize with my resolve
You want to leave
Don't let me down
Don't tell me no

If you misunderstood
What my destiny is offering
That's not my problem
Find your own sanity

I never told you to be distant
Understand my retribution
My sin is not what you see
My fire is in my kiss

In My Palace

I feel waves of butterflies

I see waves of happiness
from heaven-
Take dreams
To the heart of my palace

TBT: Shades Of Love (1996)

Shades of love under my bed
Have either died or left
As I think my weakness is truth
Does it mean I’m not there
Or should I still dream
Without thinking I wonder why
Must I look atop the sun
Always I have been beneath
Still my heart beats
‘Til the end of light
Enormously loving you more
Resisting to the ever-growing tenderness…

Of empty feelings
The endless fight
To find my grace
Never to question

My powers grow, when I'm evil
No sorrow, just agony
Like a fall from my kingdom
My eyes, surrender

My quest for success

Aggravated

Don’t say goodbye before you’re ready
It takes a firm soul to keep it steady
There never was a better time to be passionate
But don’t let it get in the way of fate

Don’t say hello before I’m no longer a stranger
It takes a while to wonder if I’m trust or danger
There never was a better way to be exploited
But don’t let it get in the way of getting disappointed

TBT: An Open Door (2003)

Short of temper under delay
My impatience was surrounding me
Suddenly losing the power to act
Beyond my obligations or duty

I was asking for immunity from the fear
Of unbearable physical pain
Only my body can endure

In the habit of being practical
My resistance was free of artificiality
Suddenly losing the power to see
Beyond my beliefs or faith

I needed protection from the predictability
Of passing through the life
Only my soul could understand

Hostess

Follow the notes of music

Look for the rainbow of fears
That dissipate during the testament
Of our shared reality

I wish I knew why
People are
Always wondering
Why they do things
Why they forget
Why they neglect
It's always been
A passion
To find the roots
Of my past
But I forgot
To look ahead
To the eyes
Starring at me
The eyes of forgiveness

I wish I knew how
People are
Always wondering
How to do things
How to forget
How they reflect
IT's always been
Desperation
To find the shadows
Of the past
But they forget
To look inside
To the heart
They think is dead
The heart
Of forgiveness

Shipwrecked

I’m stuck between two worlds
My world is dying
I won’t let myself listen to panic
Let me take my last breath in peace
Everything, nothing, leave me alone
Let me see my world is dying

I cast away my heart
To be shipwrecked
Let it be lonely

You are stuck between two worlds
My world is thriving
Don’t let them listen to the lies
Two mothers, two fathers
Always, never, I won’t let you perish
Make me see why your world is dying

I cast away my soul
To be shipwrecked
Let it be empty

We’re stuck between two worlds
Neither of us can stop crying
I don’t want to feel this way anymore
What have you destined us to
Confused, bruised, let me heal
Set me free so I no longer feel

I cast away my mind
To be shipwrecked
Let it be thirsty

What love do you want from me
That you can't give to yourself
It's all in the way you imagine
The little sun in the sky
The little things that make you high
Take a moment and imagine

What kind of life do you need
That you can't live with others
It's all in the way you breathe
The big problems that you imply
The big things that make you cry
Take a moment and breathe

What kind of sins do you carry
That you can't forgive yourself
It's all in the way you pray
The small heart in your eye
The small things that make you try
Take a moment and pray

TBT: Crown (2011)

I've been charming a captivator
He counts my tears at night
Presents himself as innocent
He needs some sign of dignity
And I need a crown of authority

I never said I was a perfect creation
We all have a certain level of appreciation
Find the crack that drains my soul
And lessen my feelings of desperation

I've been teaching a failure
He haunts my dreams at night
Presents himself as a liar
He needs some sign of hope
And I need a cause to elope

I never said I had a perfect explanation
We all have a certain level of hesitation
Find the thorn that pains my heart
And lessen my yearning for gratification

Can We Move On

Can we think this one through
Apparently I am my own enemy
I just don’t know where I got lost
Or where I may find remedy

Can anyone rescue the forgotten
Apparently I can’t do it dependably
I just don’t know where to look
Or where I may find clarity

Can we move on to the distinguished
Apparently I disrespect accidentally
I just don’t know where I am
Or where I may find simplicity

And peace

For yet another rain

The Tempted

The never tempted find a lonely path
They find comfort in the solace-
There is no delay in finding peace,
Only wondering if there’s a meaning to serenity

The sometimes tempted see the message
They switch values as pain demands-
There is no doubt in planning for tomorrow,
Only wondering if there’s a limit to liberty

The always tempted question everything
They have as many answers as they find problems-
There is no puzzle they can’t solve,
Only wondering if there’s an end to curiosity

TBT: Never There (2012)

I have to leave now
I hear him coming through
The darkness
Feed on me through tomorrow
I have to leave regardless
In the darkness

I have to understand
I fear what's not seen
The mystery
You've never seen yesterday
You have to see beyond
The mystery

The Good Nurtured

Take my hand and hold strong
Believe in a chance for survival
The irony is not forgotten
That you were once my rival

Take a chance and hold your own
Believe in a vibrant tomorrow
The paradox is not lost
That you were once my hero

TBT: Capella (1998)

Running in my mind
Is a time I can find
I knew what it meant
To be free

The oversized universe
Used to tell me nothing
A kind of innocence
That let me be me

We always found it funny
How we thought that we knew
What people thought
Of our mortality

And now the sun is rising
Our minds are closing
But we influence everything
Like irregularity

Accumulation

The better half of the human character
Is always left with many doubts
It feels the tension in the decisions that fade
Never says hello, never says goodbye
Always tries to hide the mistakes it never made

The worse half of the human character
Is always asking too many questions
It needs the tension to find reasons to forgive
Always says sorry, always says don’t worry
Always tries to defend the mistakes it outlives

Somewhere between the two halves of darkness
Is always a place for too many choices
Feel the tension in the shame you never forget
Maybe say you were right, maybe say you were wrong
Always try to prevent the mistakes you regret

TBT: Formality (1999)

Footsteps, I cannot hear
A cold, I cannot feel
The sensitivity-
My mind cannot deal

Strain of white
A sorrow, I cannot mend
The functionality-
My kind cannot comprehend

Tears in time
A fear, I cannot control
The immortality-
My hands cannot hold

The Real Ambrosine

Follow your friend
To the beginning
I know it burns
To step into this direction
I will be honest
If you show me courage
And the true spirit
That brings revelation

Follow your heart
That delays comprehension
I know it aches
While love is reeling
I will be purest
If you don’t lie to me
And the real tears
That bring healing

TBT: Waiting For Freedom (2006)

I was patiently waiting for freedom
And all it would mean for me
There was never a time
I would sacrifice my beliefs
But maybe I'd wish to sing and dance
When I felt like it
(If I had the chance)

I was yearning for the meaning of life
So cleverly disguised for me
But I thought I knew
What it meant to be free
I was never wrong
(You were never wrong)

I always knew it had to be freedom
When I was pleased with me
If I had love
The meaning of trust
So cleverly mundane
And I never search
(I never wandered)

I was patiently waiting for freedom
(But maybe it was waiting for me)

Not Original

I’m not going to go there yet-
Granted how old I am I should start considering
I guess I’m just going to have to wait
Until I’m on the brink of dying

I’m not going to compare myself yet-
Seeing as I’m almost never right
I guess I should just start lying
Until I find motivations with more fight

I’m not going to finish just yet-
Every time my heart sings goodbye
I guess I should learn to appreciate it
Until my emotional moment passes by

TBT: Bye Love (2003)

I know how you feel
You wonder if
It's the only chance
You'll ever get
The only change
You'll always regret

I know how you feel
You wonder if
It's the only way
You'll ever love her
The only day
You'll always remember

Vessel

If likes and wishes
Were nothing but fishes
I’d say there’s plenty
To be found in the sea

But never should I wonder
If that looks like a flounder
Because I’ve found nothing
But busted boots from fishing!

TBT: My Human Affairs (The Ones We Forget) (1998)

The lessons have been broken
To useful pieces of wisdom
To be subject of acquired experience
We often call divine

One of them called me
Lest that I would miss
My chance for a better faith
I often leave behind

Missing Thoughts

Am I overthinking this?
I tried to think about escape
The freedom of my despair
How did I even get this far?

Am I misinterpreting this?
I tried to love just as much
The activation of my nightmare
How do I heal this scar?

TBT: NightBlood (2004)

Why can people be so innocent
To believe they are nothing more
Than the sum of their memories
They forget that a second in time
A little sunshine in the night
Will give them reason to fight
There's no reason to live in fright
Every time they have a chance to win
They take the path that leads them
To the darker side of faith
Believing it will make them stronger
That they'll never have to cry again
When they can’t speak, can’t think
And they wonder why they stink
They don’t understand it only takes
A second in time to realize
You can kill me forever
You can give me death
But I will never let you
Extinguish the light in my soul.

I can do that myself.

So Many Songs

I wonder why
That song
Brings back
So many emotions
A familiar song
That brings back
No specific memories
There were already
So many songs
Stuck in my head
But on this day
I just had to listen
To this one instead

TBT: I Believe I Can (2000)

I walk the path
To the secret life
I try to see
In my destiny

I see the wrath
To the sacred song
I try to sing
Inside of me

But to the eyes
But to the nothing
But for the blindness
I am free

Like this emotion
I believe I can
I believe I can win

Like this salvation
I believe I can
I believe I can win

Rioulette

Try to beat the odds
Forever be the winner in death
There will be many more audiences
With she that calls herself God!

Try to not get caught
Forever be waiting for a fresh chance
There will be many more accidents
With she that calls herself Moobot!

TBT: Thrill (2008)

Raise your eyes to the sky
See the light from up above
I saw your hand reach out for me
And felt a touch of love

Catch a trip around the world
And tell me what you see
I saw hands pray for answers
And felt a touch of pity

Find a word that means true
Watch as it creates a tear
I saw how it gave you chills
And felt a touch of fear

Feel The Strain

Watch as my hands burn
Fuel the pyre of my desires
Find a way to warm your soul
Feel the strain of your fire

Watch as my hopes fade
Envy the vacancy of my fears
Find a way to calm your heart
Feel the strain of your tears

TBT: Corner Shadows (2003)

My eyes
Have seen darkness
A darkness
Even the night
Never sees
And I might
Have missed it
Hadn't I seen
The light

My heart
Has heard love
A love
Even the gods
Never hear
And I might
Have missed it
Hadn't I heard
The screams

Never Enough Time

I wonder how long
It takes to be perfect
There is so much trying
Never arriving
Tell me how
I come to achieve a balance
Before I fall to my demise
Crying

I wonder how long
It takes to be happy
There is so much worrying
Never appreciating
Tell me how
I come to understand my self
Before I run out of time
Dying

TBT: Atlantis (1999)

I feel the water
I see the blue-
Atlantis

I kneel for you
My hand-
I see you're nearer

And when I speak your name
I feel free, I feel you-
Atlantis

I see the wildlife
My man-
I see us together

I feel the air
The air of truth-
Atlantis

Slumber

How many hours does it take
Until it feels like time stands still
I’ve waited far too long
For fate to bend my will

How many dreams does it take
Until it feels like I’m not sleeping
I’ve waited far too long
For slumber to bring me healing

TBT: Either Way (I Am) (2000)

A new fruit will blossom
With the life I can change
Ask about the gift
You can get from the ocean
Walk towards the altar
My mind brings to peace
Either way, I am
Entitled to question
The practice I am receiving

Say good-bye
Jungle of my heart
Ask about the kiss
You can get from the ocean
Walk towards the sea
My mind brings to peace
Either way, I am
Never going to dispel
The practice I am receiving

The Empty Fortress

Navigating changes in my life
I was confused with my choices
Never seen what I could see
Always criticism in others’ voices

Embracing challenges in my life
I was developing my fortitude
Never seen what I could do
Always doubt in others’ attitude

TBT: Unfallen (2010)

I felt like
The night before
My hand in shadow,
Untamed
I felt like
There was more
My thoughts in sorrow,
Retained

I left feeling like
The day never mended
My truth displayed,
Mistaken
I left feeling like
I had ended
My thoughts in emptiness,
Unfallen

Remorse

Compelled to follow
The path I never chose
I was observing
My dutiful remorse
I ensured
Complete satisfaction
And found weak beliefs
To discreetly enforce

Imposing to those
Who bully my cause
I was reassured
I could be persuading
I obtained permission
To change my mind
And found vulnerable emotions
Swiftly fading

(c) Marc Noël 2016
