Circling The Drain

 
Starting from the top again
Till I've said what I must to suffice
A longing in my bones
To write my way to a makeshift paradise
 
A compulsion drives me to speak
But it's never enough
All remains to be shown
In the expressions of faith and love
 
Heart under construction
Demolish and rebuild to revise
Battlefield between heaven and hell
If sight is blindness, let faith be my eyes
 
Till death is the only way we can see
As we place our hope in something greater
I'm still waiting for truth to become reality
 
Contending to believe
When what I perceive is the lie
Accursed to partake of the consequence
Blessed to be reborn everyday that I die
 
Osculating between
What is illusion and what is real
Philosophical meanderings
Circling the drain, spiraling with what I feel
 
Giving myself the permission to be down
When tears are the only why I know how to move on
In silence and obscurity I drown
I know you exist in another place but right now your gone
 
Memories and the past speaks
Advice given to prepare
Forward minded to eternity
Appointed to be reunited with you there
 
Tell me what it's like on the other-side of this
No sting in death and yet I'm left in loneliness
 
When silence is my enemy
For the voice that takes our loved ones place
I've been found in the arms of a thousand lovers
But not one of them can ever replace
 
Despite the bonds of our common sorrows
The touch of a mother's embrace
Sore eyes seeking for the sight to behold
When I see you again, face to face
 
You are an expression I think of
When I sing of such amazing grace
For the example of who you were to me
You're part of the prize at the end of this race
Your heart is the mold of what mine aspires to be...
