    SHY'S RAYS
    .............................................


    Oh my little bird,
    Come out of that cage,
    The sun longs for your wings
    To caress it's warm rays.
    Do you now shy from the cloud
    That creeps across the sky?
    You used to dance in the rain
    And I always wondered why.

    Oh my little bird,
    Give your burden away,
    Then again you could fly
    Without so much weight.
    Do you think the moon would tell
    The secrets you couldn't keep,
    When you cried out to Him
    While we were all sound asleep?

    Oh my little bird,
    No need to be scared,
    The trees long for your song
    That once blew through the soft air.
    Do you fear we could not listen
    To your mournful song,
    That you'd search for harmonies
    And no one would sing along?

    Oh my little bird,
    To us, you can weep.
    You were strong for us before,
    But now there's no need.
    Would you please come out now, bird
    And let us wipe your tired eyes?
    Fly up, and don't look down,
    The wind will carry your cries.

    I forgot myself again
    Please, put me back in my place
    You never break The Chain
    So give it to me straight

    Tell me
    Who am I again?
    Who am I again?
    Tell me darlin'

    Let me live in the day
    What I dream in the night
    The illusion will soon fade
    When your hugs become too tight
    Let me love the lie
    Say, "it's alright"
    The illusion will soon fade
    Into another goodbye

    Been gone for a while now
    But God, your always the same
    Like your character is kept on file
    Oh, I rely on you to keep me sane

    Tell me
    Who am I again?
    Who am I again?
    Tell me darlin'

    Let me live in the day
    What I dream in the night
    The illusion will soon fade
    When your hugs become too tight
    Let me love the lie
    Say, "it's alright"
    The illusion will soon fade
    Into another goodbye

    You get this look in your eye
    I'm a puzzle you've solved
    About a hundred times
    Convince me that I'm loved
    After the long goodbye
    Convince me that I'm loved
    The way you do in the night

    I've forgotten myself again
    Please put me back in my place
    You never break the chain
    You always say it to my face

    Been gone for a while
    But God you're always the same
    Like your character is kept on file
    That sureness keeps me sane
    I rely on you to keep me sane
    Who am I again?
    Who am I again?

    You get this look in your eye
    Like I'm a puzzle you've solved
    About a hundred times
    Once you've finally come back
    After a long goodbye
    And I ask wordlessly
    Who am I?
    Who am I?

    I know you'll inevitably go
    You always want your freedom
    We can't ever really let go
    Cause only we know
    Who are you?
    Do you know?

    Dont bloom, my darling
    Just wait, oh dear
    For if you flower too early
    You'll wither i fear

    Dont bloom, my darling
    For spring isnt here
    The warm sun is coming
    I'll wait for it here

    Dont bloom, my darling
    And don't shed a tear
    The harsh winter is long
    Would you wait for me dear?

    I've been holding a match in my hand
    And the strike box in the other
    It's been cold, it's been cold
    In this house here with you

    Behind the dusty window
    There's a river, steady streaming
    I could go, I could go
    There's nothing you could do

    When your arms are around me
    I forget about the rivers flow
    But when the silence grows
    I go back to the window

    Would you burn with this house?
    Suffocating in billowing smoke
    Please just go, please just go
    Leave our silent, cold home

    I strike the match with one hand
    And a picture in the other
    Up in smoke, up in smoke
    As I hold on to you

    Hypnotized by the ripples
    I sit, I breathe
    In the short grass
    Upon the maple leaves

    Winding my thin line
    Pull up, drag down
    Let em bite if they please
    In the cool dirt
    Under the reaching trees

    He fidgets beside me
    Afraid of the winds laughter
    I tell him it's only chatter
    Just sit, just breathe

    I look through his eyes
    And I'm disgusted by the sight
    Will he never truly see?
    Will he ever just be?

    Have I done it again? Created a fantasy that will eventually corrupt my reality?

    Soft long waves
    All down her back
    Steady winds sigh
    Caressing it back

    There's no fear here
    Or doubt, or angst
    In the green light through the leaves
    I'm washed, I'm a saint

    Tender grass stirs
    All freckled in dew
    The winds soft fingertips
    Soothe them too

    It's all fresh here
    And young and free
    On the sure ground, all outstretched
    I am safe, Im steady

    I will forget
    The peace, the power
    But whispers of the wind
    Call to me louder

    They will call to me louder

    Palm to Chest

    I press one palm to my chest
    The other on my stomach
    Breathing is a hard request
    I wonder, am I sick?

    My knees, my knees
    Split and skinned red
    I plead, "oh please
    End this life I've led"

    Don't guess or wonder why
    You'll only feel more empty
    Let it all out in a sigh
    No way to say it simply

    My head, your head
    Keep it in there
    Better left unsaid
    They promise they care

    No one will ever know
    If your poem doesn't rhyme
    If you keep it all inside
    Press your palm to your chest

    I do wonder about you, you know?
    No,
    You don't.
    Try as you might, my thoughts are mine.
    Throw me a penny, toss me a dime
    Touch my surface, try to stay afloat
    You won't.
    So,
    Will you still try time again, even so?
