Steadfast SanguineSuch craved elation imparts,Steadfast Sanguine by BobcatYahamanatano
In craven lonely hearts,
Of paying tolls with time
And praying there in kind
That Autumn tides do babble
in loudly whispered dreams
Of chosen brooks to ramble
That by no others means
By fleeting warmth of sunlight
Could Summer's ebb undo,
Or in those coldest hours
Could Winter's grip ensue
But granted in its stead
In Spring we raise our glasses,
For sprightly ghosts of youth outgrown
And healing wounds to wed;
And in that somber moment
Where desire dares to tread,
Undressing silent victims
Of time's incessant chant,
That Autumn tide has come
And ended like a dream
More rapid than was hoped,
More silent than it seemed
Therein by yearning stranded,
And daring to atone
That weary heart then branded
In faded ink: "Alone"
BelongHow old is old enoughBelong by BobcatYahamanatano
To decide that you're too young?
Do I call your bluff
Do I give you all my love;
Or is it here that you belong?
Is this your song?
Are you a coward,
Or are you strong?
When the battle's over
Will your smile be gone?
Or will it be tainted,
By all that you've done?
And how old is too young
To decide you've had enough?
Do I try to call your bluff,
Like a mission sent from above
Or is this where you belong?
Are you lost at sea?
Or are you drowning
In your misery?
Will in the morning,
you be free?
Or will your vessel haunt you
For room to breathe?
If I stole you from the noose
Would your heart still find no use?
And If I gave you all my love,
If I tried to call your bluff;
Or is this
Where you belong?
Second StepCome,Second Step by BobcatYahamanatano
My sinful Dove tell me
What you know of love,
No one gets out of here
leave your memories behind
They'll only slow you in time,
And no one gets out of here alive,
in this moment I confide,
By your loose lipped grin I abide;
If from the morning light
should we hide,
We won't make it alive,
MotiveA fire breath'd out by nightMotive by BobcatYahamanatano
Of breath by wicked candlelight
Thy knell, this knoll encompass thee
Thine tribulation, broken free
Mine soul does scathe this brittle wall
Pounding heard, and pounding hard
That heart-felt sounding, may alarm
That breath so cherished now aloft
And may my cancer pray thee this
That by no moonlight shall I miss
A finger doled on rotting flesh
And by thine message may refresh
Should healthy ire grant its boon
This wretched man, alive too soon
Long DistanceA thin screen is all that seems to divide us,Long Distance by plathfan910
But really there are so many more miles between us
It would take almost a month to walk.
And yet, all I want to do is be with him;
I would walk those miles if that's what it takes,
What it takes to be in the same town as he is.
What a lot of people don't know,
Is that thin screen is not enough to keep us together,
Though I am trying as hard as I can,
And I really want to be happy with him,
There are times when I wonder
If I can really handle being so far away from the one I love.
Still Waiting to Say I Love YouI watched you walk away,Still Waiting to Say I Love You by plathfan910
Your back turned away from me
No chance of you ever looking behind
To see what you might have left.
I wish I could make you turn around,
Maybe there's a way to make you see
That the one that you are leaving standing there in the cold
Far behind you,
Is the one that might want you more than anyone else.
Six months have passed since then,
And I am still standing here,
At this very spot
From which I watched you walk away,
Always walking away,
Never stopping to call out goodbye.
I will stand here until time stops,
Until there is no more rain.
I will stand here,
All the time,
Just waiting to tell you just how I feel:
Still waiting to say "I love you."
