Dust & Innocence

Dust & Innocence (2010)

Standing waiting for a sign,
our whispered words
turn to hollow cries.
Love’s falling from our hands,
washing away with the sands.
It doesn’t matter-

Seething quietly inside,
all the wrongs,
replace the rights, hurting.
My tortured soul’s bleeding now,
this barren field needs no plow.
Only tenderness-

This life is too special
to leave without a sound.
Better turn these old boots around,
and start fighting-
Until the leaves cease to fall
and the rocks upon this wall, crumble-
(to dust and innocence)

The loss of love,
it weighs so heavy,
on this old heart now.
Spent the days counting lies,
chasing shadows in the night.
Will this be forever?

Feeling empty and so cold
a man without a soul.
Wandering lost and so alone,
only Distance–
A coronation without a crown,
got me thinking-

This life is too special
to leave without a sound.
Better turn these old boots around,
and start fighting-
Until the leaves cease to fall
and the rocks upon this wall, crumble-
(to dust and innocence)

This love’s not over,
This love’s not over,
This love’s not over-
