God, U2 and a Moment

Hell is truly being alone. Unable to be honest. Limited by fear of judgement and consequences. Unable to ask. Unable to face. One of the hardest lessons of life is knowing when to set aside pride and prejudice and lean on others. It shouldn’t be that hard. But the world is not set up for us to take care of each other.

Moment of Surrender

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses roam free
Playing with the fire
Until the fire played with me

The stone was semi precious
We were barely conscious
Two souls too smart to be
In the realm of certainty
Even on our wedding day

We set ourselves on fire

Its not if I believe in love
(But) If love believes in me
Oh believe in me

At the moment of surrender
I folded to my knees
I did not notice the passers by
And they did not notice me

At the alter of the Dark star
My body’s now a begging bowl
That’s begging to get back
Begging to get back

To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my consciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was punching in the numbers at the ATM machine
I could see in the reflection
A face staring back at me
At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers by
And they did not notice me

I was speeding off the subway
Through the stations of the cross
Every eye looking every other way
Counting down till the pain will stop

At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers by
And they did not notice me Continue reading
