Along The Way

Along The Way

Have you ever needed a tomorrow
to be anything but today
A day when you found out that
all of the time that was borrowed
came with a price too high to pay
when the thoughts of
all thats worth fighting for
got lost along the way
The struggle left you reluctant
to wade back into the fray
Yes I saw you there and by the way
I'm glad you're going my way

As The Caged Heart Keeps Time-TheMinstrel



As The Caged Heart Keeps Time

Lost in the mist of a memory
And beyond bridges crossed I find
One looking for another
Blind bleeding the blind

Broken on the rocks of distant shores
Starving among the plenty
No peace was there to be found
And loving arms should not remain empty

In the distance I see birds flying
Above the lands I call home
Feet set upon the the trail inland
Back to familiar faces,familiar places where I'm known
                                 -TheMinstrel

Burn 

Was it so very easy
Getting over me
Did it take even a moment
Before you could breathe
Without feeling like each breath was your last

I waited on you to say
The words to make me stay
I languished in the silence
And was vanquished by the distance 
My presence 
Was not required 

So now as the alter smolders in air
Unfit to breathe
I say let it burn
Let it all burn
And be consumed in the cleansing fire 

As the embers die and the ashes cool
I offer up a prayer to the nameless, faceless
Gods of Destiny in thanks for the future ahead
And the road as yet untraveled-TheMinstrel

Facing The Wind

 

Facing The Wind

One unseen step from enlightenment
One careless gesture from destruction
Fate a cunning cabal of unjust tricksters
Invading mere mortal lives
With all the feelings of a Texas Tornado

Don't know what it is about me
But I guess i'll always be
Facing the storm in impotent defiance and wry glee
Rueful grin until the end
Facing the wind

The Beast


The Beast
Addiction is a slavering beast
Wearing doppelganger skin
Eyes shining with madness
It can be chained 
But not tamed 
Every day a battle
Nights another war
But we have come to an agreement
This cunning foe and I
After giving my pound 'o' flesh
(Weighed on the crooks scale)
I live with the foul fiend's breath
Hot upon my neck
Fangs dripping
Saliva running cold rivulets
Down my spine
Always there,watching,waiting
My chained demon
SIT!
Who's a good boy?
