Words Hidden – Promote Yourself

brightxxxxxxxxxx
The sky is lovely and the stars shine bright
A pen is with me – I think I should write
I sat on the grass and I tried not to think
But ideas came out in just one blink.

Oh words, why am I running out of you?
Transform my thoughts – use every hue
Come to me, for it is my heart that speaks,
Come to me, for it is my mind that seeks.

I do not have a lot; I do not have enough
Perhaps I should stop for it might be a bluff
The calm sky roared, it seemed to disagree
My mind is in pain, please set it free

I must look for the treasure that I have lost
For love is there and you don’t know its cost
Hope exists but the words remain hidden
And so do arguments that can’t be overridden.

The sun had risen and I was still wide-awake
Pain was there – I don’t know how much I can take
All I ever wanted was for my voice to be heard
But how, but how, for I am lost for words

Underground – Promote Yourself

firexxxxxxxxxxxxx

Perhaps, now is not the time I want to be unearthed.
Perhaps, I enjoy being underground.
Perhaps, I like the thrill of mystery;
Not everyone needs to know all the details.
Some words are best left unspoken,
And I like to guard my tongue; it is a very loose thing
Needing restraint against all its aims to destroy me.
Perhaps, you think I am too harsh a master,
But I need to be smart and mete out the weights.
That come in bearing my image to the world; my real self, unbridled
But quick to see the false face that arises underneath the masquerade.
Perhaps, you don’t understand it yet, or know what it means to live
In the light of reality.
So, perhaps, someday, you will learn to light the world on fire
And know the song of joy.
