Burning Years

Unquenchable thirst; blazing desire
Burning in water; drowning in fire
Eminent joy; regressed depression
Enjoyable crush; stupid obsession
An old mind too slow, a new heart too fast
Finding the future; losing the past
Living by day; dying by night
Knowing when to lose; learning when to fight
Conservative heart; liberal mind
Imperfections lose; imperfections find
I’ve stalked my courage and witnessed my fears
I’ve felt your touch and seen your tears
Not as clear as black and white
Feeling wrong but knowing I’m right
Freezing in heat; flaming in ice
My heart the only sacrifice
Bitter to the taste; sweet to the heart
Amazing finish; challenging start
Unrivaled ecstasy; morbid disgust
Lying for fun; a person I can trust
Buried in the earth to touch the sky
Running from pain; not willing to cry
Feeling love trickle down your spine
Your heart is empty? So is mine
Irony will never cease
Giving your heart away piece by piece
The trees grow tall
I stumble and fall
You fly through my dreams
But that’s not enough it seems
Is apathy the greatest shade of gray?
Temples fall as I pray
If love isn’t real than neither are you
The land of the free but the brave are few
Does life bring death?
Or does the fear of death bring new breath?
Does love define success?
Does failure define loneliness?
Having conversations with myself
I placed my emotions upon the shelf
I cleared my mind and opened my soul
Closed my eyes and played my role
Is failure real or all in the mind?
Anger and avarice its all the same kind
Not failure but learning from mistakes
Changing your view that’s all it takes
Tasting tears knowing they are mine
Casting my pearls before the swine
Can I confide in a saint?
As faith’s heartbeat grows faint
