I've lived and died a thousand times.
Said goodbye so many times.
I tried to see behind those eyes,
But there was only darkness full of guise.

I've tried to read between the lines,
But it's just a blur, I'm so colour blind.

Minutes, moments, signs and Omens,
For just a second you left it open.
So I wandered in to where you'd been,
Touched your heart and made it clean.

Then you shut the door...

And I couldn't see anymore...

So now I wander alone in my mind,
Waiting for a reply that I'll never find.
So if it's cruel to be kind,
You must be a fxxxing Saint in your mind!

And while I exist in a circle,
That goes round and round.
You're so silent,
You can't hear a sound.

I'm sick of this feeling,
This pointless day dreaming.
A movie reel that keeps spinning,
Towards the same ending, with the same beginning.

So if this is a song,
Then it's been playing too long.

And if it's a riddle,
Then I'll only get it wrong.

The Riddle

I'm gonna hold you, for just a little while,
Coz I told you just a little lie.

Yeah there's time to tell,
But that time's not now.
I wanna hold you, just a little while.

I could tell you, that it isn't true.
And that's probably, what I'm gonna do.
But I guess now, there's just no getting through.
I can't say it's love, if I don't tell the truth.

So I'm gonna hold you, just a little while.
Trace the dimples of that perfect smile.
Burn you ...in my brain a while,
Kiss those lips, before my world falls down...

Coz It's done now.
I can't undo now.
I'm undone now.
What do I do now?

It was fun then.
But I'm a fool now.
I can't undo now.
Wish I knew how.

So I'm gonna hold you, just a little while,
Coz I don't wanna,
wanna say goodbye.

I know I've got to...
I just don't know how...

So let me hold you...
Just a little while...

Hold You Just a Little While

Ether...
It's no matter...
I can't see you,
You're lost forever.

I can't feel you,
And like a Holy Ghost,
It's never,
That I see you most.

I miss you,
Yet you're not a boy.
You're just,
A vaporised decoy.

You're just a million,
Days before,
I opened up,
Then shut the door.

I'm not a puppet.
I'm not a toy.
But you're Pinocchio,
Just a wooden boy.

Bad things happen in this world
when Angels pay the price
to Devils dressed in white.

Some can tell their borrowed words,
that sound so very nice.
Others cannot tell,
and pay the stranger twice.

Feel the balance start to shift,
as Devils get their grip,
And tip us upside down.
Angels lost, not found.

And like Icarus to the sun,
It seemed like so much fun,
But now the deal is done,
We're left like smoking guns.

What point is there to run,
The compass' tip has spun,
And now we've settled in to steel,
Got used to how it feels.

Always cut in half,
We'll walk this stranger's path.
Not knowing how to feel,
Forgotten how to laugh.

For Angels cannot fly,
On broken wings and lies,
And broken wings can't fly,
When Angels will not try.

Devils Dressed in White

I'm a Shadow Girl
and you'll walk past me,
A Where's Wally
in this tapestry.

I'm a hidden door
and a forgotten key,
A curtain call,
but you won't see me.

I'm a boxing glove,
in this push and shove
And I'll win this round
before you can count to three.

I'm Angel dust
in this box of rust.
A shining star
in this bowl of dust.

I'm in between you
and where you've been.
I'm the ghost you cannot see.

The voice in your head
but you can't hear me.
So if it sounds like silence,
Then it sounds like me.

Shadow Girl

I just wanted something,
And I swear it's more than this.
Whatever came between us?
What made it come to this?

You're somewhere off and running
And I'm left holding bits.
Pieces of a picture,
A puzzle turned to shit.

I swear I'll let it rest
And I'm doing my broken best,
But somewhere in the Summer
I know I'll fail that test.

You've taken half of me,
And the other half has left.
It's hiding in the Winter
Of my sunken chest.

So if memories divide us,
Then I'll take down all the frames.
Stow away the pictures
And find some other face.

But this is not a contest,
This is simply pain.
I just wanted something,
And now that something's gone away.

The Broken Bits

I am Time
And I am black
And I'm the coat
Upon your back.

You'll wear me well
But never tell,
Just how it feels
to live in hell.

You'll take me off,
And hang me up
But leopards never
change their spots.

And never doubt
You'll wear me out.
But I'll be back,
just inside out.

Time

Of all things gone
And come again,
Of wisdom born
From time before.

Of shallow graves
And secrets torn,
From many times
That led to now.

Of shadows cast
And lives that passed,
And all the things
That will not last.

In empty chests
Of treasures rest,
That come to light,
Through second sight.

What was before
Will never be
And what is now,
Is yet to see.

In darkness lies
The brilliant light
And blinding be
The ones so bright.

That none can hold,
But hold us tight.
It is within,
We find our heart.

About Me

Bio

I am an alternate poet / lyricist and visual artist (displayed next to lyrics) My style is raw, edgy and from the heart. I live in Perth , Western Australia.
I have been writing since I was a child, some life experiences and overcoming adversity have given me a lot of subjects to write about.
My dream is to have a passionate artist bring my words to life and or to collaborate. Stories have the amazing power of universal healing.
I have recently sold a lyric on Songbay relatively shortly after joining, and I have ideas and songs streaming through my brain ready to get to the next level.
I have written my first piano score for my own song which feels amazing.
I Look forward to this next step in the journey of growth and personal empowerment . We are all in this together.
Love Emma
