Dance Of The SwansDance Of The Swans
© Sharquelle
You approach; a display of grace, confidence and restraint
A presence with the power to break down my every resistance
Strength, enveloped in feathers that are so soft to the touch
Gliding through waters deep enough to drown reality itself
Waters that mirror an image of two swans,
a pair locked in a courtship dance of stare and look away
We are contestants in a battle of strength and willpower 
But as you muster yours, I use my last to take off        
Not knowing whether it is my flight that drains the last of my vigor,
or fighting the urge to turn around and crash-land in our beautiful reflection
Please, Come In!Come in! Yes, come in!
No worries, just come in!
Your desperate knock
and rain-soaked frock
are begging you, come in!
Ignore my growly tone,
its comfy in my home!
There's paper dolls
and woolly shawls
and chocolate ice cream cones!
But wait! There's so much more!
There's hop-scotch on my floor!
Come in and see
fun books to read.
For sure you'll not be bored!
I'll give the knob a turn,
but don't you be concerned!
Do not surmise
my reptile eyes
are menacing or stern!
And disregard that smell
I do not cook so well...
My pickled eggs
they grew some legs
and on the floor they fell!
I'm opening the door,
a crack and nothing more!
Helloooooo, my friend!
I'm... ! 
Wait!! Don't run away!! 
Carnival of Sorrow lyricsThin-lipped and silent,
let us walk through the valley.
Let makeup run, and let's
apply rouge to all of our scars.
Sheets of gauze draped o'er us.
Through the gnashing of teeth,
we can weep through the chorus.
It's the Carnival of Sorrow.
Put on your black robe
and your tragedy mask, it's the
Carnival of Sorrow.
I heard that they have a
strength-test, but it works on your
Doom and gloom forever.
That's what the festival's
all about, and
when we turn our pain to pleasure,
we will never hurt again.
Strait-laced and grim,
let's descend toward our tickets,
squirm through catatonic processions--
they've been there for all time.
Wait as long as we're are able.
Shuffle the dead to the back of the line.
It's for the
Carnival of Sorrow
They have a breaking wheel:
survive and win a goldfish at
the Carnival of Sorrow.
Their maze of mirrors, it can
double as a freak-show, it's
fine! Fine! Fine forever!
That's what the festival's
all about.
We will never, ever, ever
fix what's broken inside o

Cruel insomniaEvery night when I try to sleep,
I see your face, a mutant sheep.
Black is its coat, darker than night.
Drenched in mortal wrongs, twisted right.
Truly does your shimmer dim,
As a ghost, recurring grim.
Your memory is a mirror
Showing me my worst.
In it, I see invisible slashes clearer.
I believe its depth is cursed.
For judgement it naught forestall.
Woe the flaws, I behold all.
Those eyes, ones I'll never forget,
Worn now by a stranger, once almost a pet.
I know their reality,
Bleak, fickle of fealty.
Swear on your life, please.
Just more clutter on the breeze.
For in the depths of dement,
Only lies can ferment.
Love me, love me, please oh do.
Crush me, crush me, I'm counting on you.
Ruin me, ruin me, I'm begging now.
Tear me up for one more show.
I love your choice of knife.
Composed of meaning, free of life.
Your sadistic dagger
Breaks me down to a beggar.
See? I told you I've come so far.
Have I finally earned a gold star?
Three little wordsHead over heels, on the same wave length,
joined at the hip, going hand in hand,
in the same direction,
full of dreams and plans.
We are each other´s echo in the forest
a stronghold in the storm.
We are the cats who got the cream,
like two kids in a candy store.
Always a soft spot for one another
our love goes hand in glove
and sets the perfect picture,
is blessed from up above.
Three little words go without saying
we understand each other blind
with our love in seventh heaven,
true happiness, on cloud nine.

Bravery (Heavens Blessing)Light hearted
golden thoughts
romance is blooming
I brave a new course,
The Angels came down
and talked to me
of the next man that I see
would be the one to enchant me,
They were right,
it is true,
I've met the guy
and I will allow the love to consume,
My aura is sparkly
I have Gods blessing
'Go forth and love
these are new waters that need testing,
you are up to the challenge Young One
You have Heavens Divine Blessing'
I see outside,
the rain, it tumbles down
washing away old thoughts of desperation
and allowing the green grass of possibility’s to burst forth.
I must brave this new course,
of love and light and wholeness
I’ve been searching for this for a long time
and now that my heart is whole
I can finally call it mine.

Stop This Train - T16

No I'm not color blind

 I know the world is black and white

 Try to keep an open mind but...

 I just can't sleep on this tonight

 Stop this train I want to get off and go home again

 I can't take the speed it's moving in

 I know I can't,  but honestly, won't someone stop this train
 Don't know how else to say it, don't want to see my parents go

Ceaseless mist of time
Where nature reigns endlessly
Delightful vision
In heart's memory always
Enfolded by love, like dream.
