Hiding PlaceHiding Place by nevergetfooledagain
I'm sitting alone this morning
In the empty silence of this house,
Prodding wounds best left alone-
Trying to produce the pretty words I use
To describe the pain you left me.
I speak of acceptance,
And my friends all think I'm over you.
But truth be told, the dichotomy between
What I show the world and what I feel inside,
Grows by the day.
Every moment of joy in this life
Is tainted by your memory.
All those years of teaching myself not to feel
Were washed away by your voice-
I can't find my hiding place anymore.
Because every time I go there,
I find you waiting for me-
When I brought you there
To show you my secrets,
I didn't know you had left a trail behind you-
I didn't think you could find your way back.
Now, you grow there unattended,
A rampant vine choking all life,
You've rooted yourself in my heart
And I can't seem to dislodge you-
Every time I think I have,
I find another seed has sprouted.
So I wander aimlessly through this forest
Looking for a place to call mine,

Even Angels CryEven Angels Cry by nevergetfooledagain
You placed me so high upon your pedestal,
I forgot how to breathe
thin air making me light-headed;
I, who lived among the clouds,
who used to fly.
Angel, you called me,
radiant and perfect.
And angel I was, until I saw your face,
and knew I had mistaken Heaven
for the paradise in your embrace.
So I walked away from eternity,
to spend short days with you
and gave up my wings
to fly in your arms.
But it was an angel you wanted,
and wingless, I lost your love.
I had sacrificed all for you,
only to find that you longed for
what was unobtainable.
Now flightless and broken,
I wander through endless days
bearing the weight of stranger's stares
the ones who can see this fallen angel
with the tears on his face.
