Feel you wrapped within

I wouldn't want to be your coffee 
for fear I'd burn your lips
I wouldn't want to be the book you read
though you do gently stroke the pages
with your finger tips

I would want to be your sheets
if I had one wish...

I want to be the one who you take off all your clothes for
watch you crawl within me
excited, soft and exposed
feel you rolling around and take me 
within your tight grasp
feel you tangle up with me
see your smile so relaxed

I want to be the one who you tell all your friends
"I can not go out
I'm all wrapped up in"

to see you so peaceful
to watch you smile
to know it is I
who warms you
for awhile

to feel your lips brush against me
to feel your heart beat
to know you sleep so gently
because of me
Ya, I wanna be your sheets!




In the shadows


Do you know how it feels 
to be
embraced by the shadows?
You think the fun is in the light?
but in the darkness
we are invisible

You don't want to see
what hides out in here
Takes a man without fear
to look beyond the light
and feel what hides
within the night.

In here there are no eyes to see
in here no ears to hear
steps taken so lightly
sound swallowed
by silence
not wanting to be heard

You wouldn't want to venture in
for fear it would consume you
The shadows hide behind open doors
they sneak up behind you
Don't turn 
you wouldn't find them
Shadows move ~ to find you.



Free me



There's a wall around my heart 
its been there for awhile~
It keeps me strong!

My wall fights off the fears
My wall fends off the tears
My wall
 keeps me from wanting...

My heart beats
for no-one 
but to keep the breath
within my chest

The scars are what I have 
to show
I was once 
 a fighter

I've beaten so many monsters
~alone
I've accepted this situation
as my own
I've accepted 
how I got here.

My wall allows me to see
but no longer to feel
am I missing something?

No one stronger than I
has approached my wall
and if they ever had
they turned away too soon
they didn't fight or ask to see
what a wall so tall could be hiding

For no one has tried 
to break down my wall
to shine a light into the darkness
for if they had
they just might see...
 behind a broken heart
is the soul
of a hopeful girl











Whisper to you

I don't whisper to you
so others can't hear
I whisper so that my lips 
will bring you near

I whisper 
so once you're next to me
I may feel your desire
breathe in your lust
share a brief moment 
of 
passion between us

I whisper
so that I may see
that look in your eyes...
~eager
Yes, be eager
for you will see
just how eager 
our passion can be

I'll press my lips to you
~a whisper too close?
It's just what we need
our bodies to feel
~heat
It burns from me
do you feel it too?

Then close your eyes 
and
Let me whisper to you










All is not gone


I say I don't need you 
~When you forget to call
I say I didn't want you
~When you decided to end it all

I thought that I once loved you
~You told me I was wrong
You said,
"There's more to love 
than what we had going on"

I once believed I needed you
~You showed me that I didn't
I hoped you would come back to me
~Then remembered why you wouldn't

I couldn't forget about you for the longest time
~Then one day I realized
You hadn't been on my mind

A smile appeared
knowing you were gone
~How weird.
I didn't need you at all.
