And know how much I love you.

From my window I can see that frozen doorway
Purity surrounds
Rays of light shine down and I can almost taste its color
White
But this exit to the outside world for me is barred
And for once in these three years that I have been held here I am glad
Safe
Secure
Enclosure
This raisin moonshine follows the pipeline to my thirsty lips
Weak intoxicant
But the shit does the trick
Tag on my wrist
Shows who I am and where I lay my sick head tonight
Don’t worry child
By sun rise you shall come to see all is right
-
Take this as a warning
Take this as your gift of song and dance
Another day to show your maker that you’re worth a second chance
Its time you close that book of sorrow and write of love
Not of pain
You’ll soon dance in glory with your lover in the summer’s cool rain
These words you came to understand when dressed in nothing but blue
You know those feelings inside you were true
Don’t worry
Relax the storm is coming to its end
You are doing what’s right
With this action your taking, you shall make your holy amend
-
Find a love that makes you smile
One who’ll hold your spark
Throw to the soil the ones who play and cut your bleeding heart
Do you feel the magic upon you?
Can’t you taste its wonderment-?
To worry is to slowly sink in an ocean of the devil’s wet cement
Have a fine night my love
Fall into sweetened dreams
Where candy coats the landscapes pure and clouds are made with cream
-
So here we go again
Why must you drift so far away from me this way?
No!
The question should be
Why is it that you have to drift so far from me?
My crystal hearted angel
And now you are exactly where you belong
Gone!
Don’t forget
As your soul swells with anguish, fears and regret
You put yourself here no one else signed you in
As your blood mixes with bile and your mind begins to spin
Now look out into the cold
Bitter sunset
You knew it was your time to go
-
Black hats
Champaign
Blue jeans and dirty socks
Red folder
A shower with soap and a little brine
Now it’s finally sleeping time
Where are you going with this one?
How far should we really go…?
When dropping more than tears and rain
You’ll soon realize that you went too deep
You went insane
Remember what we talk about here
Books of Holy Scriptures and a chalice filled with the blood of Christ
Hold tight these words
As warped as they sometimes get
You shall soon see
That this pain that you hold deep inside you
Hurts others as well, not just me
-
But I’m finding it hard to find you through all this smoke
I do believe you’re gone
Do you hear that alarm?
Bells and chimes
Have you done wrong?
I know that you have and this is what is hurting me
Stoned to death against an old willow tree
-
Pink and white, with a hint of blue
To face your demons
To come to terms with what is true
Would you rather hear the slamming of a prisoner’s cell room door?
To right your wrongs here in your own mind is too settle the burning score
-
Oh how I have longed to work with you again
To speak to my heavenly father
My mentor and friend
If we walk through this together
Shall I see another bright day?
When demons fall into the fires of hell
And with angles I shall play
Sleep now my child
Find me in your dreams
To hear the soft whispers of hope that shall stifle out the screams
And know how much I love you.

And know how much I love you.
