“The Color Wheel”

to make me feel again
clutch the atmosphere with this distant voice
memories lost in a criminal world
a mind to out-sharp the distance
burning before desire breaks every inch like brittle determination
stare at all the colors lodging from your back
all the colors of the fortitude
I caught a glimpse of your footstep
to out-shadow… to distrust
the dust of your refusal
a distance they refuse to touch
only in my mind you set me free
locked away for a hundred years
I feel the shadows reach out from the lake
to burn my freedom apart
when time hopes like an epidemic to witness
God at my feet
when you use your device to control my multiplicity
to embrace all my fears at once
to break apart the feeling lost in my heart
to stare at the dust…
when we used to feel in the dark
holes in their memory
when we witness pride
in the mirror’s garden every dream came true
to withstand the beauty to control
to walk across the bridge in magnitude
to color your dreams with mine
to witness the future
more than an obsession
more than an observation
every hour spreading from your wings
when we push all the colors apart
to choose the distance
to lose you forever
I’d rather be alive alone with this memory than to never have known

the color wheel

lost against your heart
the damage to leave so suddenly
all the days paved away in Gold
every hour we have had against the light
every word written in Heaven
I see you in every word broken through glass
like the butterflies stand for freedom
blue the color of your dreams
green every depth of your heartbeat
silver like the words lost in the wind
the calamity of your fortune
to recreate your heart across the sky
everyday of brilliance
written upon the stars
to outshine
to redefine this urgency
apart of the freedom locked behind harbor’s door
to suspend the disbelief written across your eyes
If I could withstand your beauty
trust can only happen now
I hear the sense drifting from your eyes
I hear a million frequencies written across the stars
to make me feel alive
to strike the match into the shadow’s eye
I see all the days define the broken pieces
we stay in this world
every vice determined
you are my fortitude
my final guidepost
to pull apart every secluded dream
a neon circus
I see you break down illuminated doors
to dream away tomorrow
you haunt my every move

“I hear tomorrow in your eyes”

I hear tomorrow in your eyes

past this point of view

to rule the existence

We watch children march across these wires

lost in the day behind this window

sustain this look past many years

we start to connect the skies

hold on to me

hold on to me

I watch the voices cross the line

don’t abandon this love

hold this string against your heart

pin every emotion towards the sky

we hold onto every day

don’t lose these years

will time break through the line across photographic skies

I watch the colors in the distance

all the shapes running against my mind

I take the blame for your mistakes

to shelter the fuel against the window

to break a million pieces of glass through my heart…

to break a million stars to remember how…

I see the sun shine behind tomorrow

I start to remember the lost days between hospital wards

turn the page through time and lift regret away

when can we run skyscrapers towards the sun?

run through tomorrow

don’t let go

don’t let go

don’t abandon this love

“code them with stars”

weave the stars like every lost parallax

turn my secrets into the fight of my life

I hear you calling

every lost feeling of regret

I hear you catch up to this broken security

every face numbered by time

call out everyday of creation

I see you set them apart

words calling me from the distance

as we step away from this violence

turn every page to withstand the beauty in their eyes

is this the end in your hands?

spin through these photographs

hurry up to watch the distance

people ride across the sky through hospital wards

up & down we can choose our way out

with every glance & every footstep tomorrow comes alive

lost again in the dark

wake up to chain myself against the mirror

it’s not black & white

when they call out from this point of instability

It’s not black & white

when they call to withstand every insecurity

break the world into my heart

take the test to prove a fault for mankind

whisper through the dark

shattering the glass with the weight of a hundred men

run through the boulevards with a million red balloons

break the colors through your hands to break this puzzle apart

a second glance a second chance

code a million stars past every vision

code a million stars to hide the screams in the basement

code a million stars to build this peculiar determination

if we can withstand the days lost inside your head

I see the traces burn through the wind

every color preventing me from standing still

every voice burning from your hands

every sound spliced through your integrity

conversations overused locked inside my head

mark it all against the walls trespassed half-ingested

Did I lose it all to find you coded with stars?

photographs lost behind locker room doors

pages turn but they won’t listen

try to grasp control but I am falling

retreat into this world

where lies don’t stick to the wall

tune the radios where dreams can’t be discerned

into the depths fighting in the distance

analyze memories under broken microscopes

grasp the lenses past hidden instinct

weigh madness on uneven scales

half a reaction

half a burning dream

photographs lost behind locker room doors

if we find the key to stop it all

if we rinse away our tears

chain myself up inside this room

eyes that watch, but never speak

colors half mended, half inspected

the words lost inside your head

a secret code repeating through the halls
