The Captured Spirit

Where are you leading me?
I can’t give you
Any satisfying advice-
When you won’t tell me
Who you really are
When you lose control

When you think you’ve had enough
Will you lead me to the real you?

When are you going to save me?
I can’t give you
Any more time-
When you won’t sit still
Who are you chasing
When you lose control

When you feel strong enough to survive-
Will you run when you realize the truth?

Where am I going to end up?
I can’t give you
Any peace of mind-
When you won’t change anything about
Who you once were
When you lost control

When did you listen to anyone else-
Will you even listen to yourself?

When is this going to finish?
I can’t give you
Any liberating clarity-
When you won’t open your eyes
Who were you believing
When you lost control

When you are nothing else but a thought-
Will your spirit smile when it realizes the truth?

TBT: The Captured Thought (2002)

I never thought this way before
This distraction, this compassion
Too slow for my mind
This thought is one of a kind

I never believed in this before
This realization, this fiction
Too small to find
This captured thought is mine

Surrender To Vanity

Thank you
For saving me a mistake
A lesson learned,
Maturity to bake-
Was stopping my vanity
But for the help
Of your sanity

There is no wonder
To be found
An empty home,
Family bound-
Was bending my rigidness
Maybe the hand
Of my innocence

TBT: The Captured Soul (2004)

My soul
Is energy-

It stands apart
From the world
It now lives
In my mind-
A home that it created

Yet, now all on its own
It is still keeping me connected

My soul
Is watching-

It is shaped
By the manner
I have lived
In my life-
A witness for the universe

Yet, in searching for its own
It is still keeping me collected

Very accomplished-
Can’t get his bones to relax
He believes in lasting logic
His sister has a brother that waits for gratification
With a name that makes him hungry

Always interrupted-
Can’t get his ashes resurrected
He envisions justice shouting
His father has a son that waits for patience
With a name that makes him angry

Challenge accepted-
Can’t get his power restored
He presumes his own infallibility
His god has a worshipper that waits for drama
With a name that makes him manly

Dedicated to "MegapiemanPHD"

TBT: The Captured Heart (2002)

Your hands
on my arms-
your kiss,

I've missed you
...so much...

My eyes close,
...this bliss.

Your comfort
in my heart-
you're sweet,

I've been through
...so much...

My breath slows,
...this heat.

Rocking Horse

             There were no bigger
to take
     Than the ones
painstakingly hate
                           My legs
cannot carry me over the mountain
                  My doubts created over lifetimes

             There were no bigger
to create
     Than the ones
painstakingly curate
                           My mind
cannot carry me over the false memories
                  My imagination created over lifetimes

TBT: The Captured Mind (1999)

Sitting at the top of the stairs
I thought I could see
Thought I could read
Seems I was lost
In these stairs to nowhere
In these lost stars

Bridge to my mind
It was looking after me
Running free, my legs took me
Seems I couldn't swim
In these stairs to nowhere
In these unknown oceans

Giving support to my soul
I thought I knew the truth
Thought I could breathe
Seems I couldn't walk
In these stairs to nowhere
In these captured minds

Move The Moon

The plan right now
Is to get out of here
And get as far away
As I can from my fears
Look at all the misery
You can surely avoid
There’s plenty of reasons
To always be annoyed
I’m not asking you
To move the moon
But I will need a favour
I’ll ask of you soon
