::STARS::

This is state of the art/

The state of my art/

From the state of my heart/

Patronage of the art/

Straight from the heart…

I’m not paid for my art/

Just a place for this pain to be discard/

So they can’t say…

I didn’t make it this far/

From the words that’ve been taken apart/

For the souls taken at large/

They say you get what you give….

And that is labeled as charged/

They wonder If it was the pain…

That made you this hard/

Not realizing it was this fate that’s involved/ 

Faith that’s evolved/

They want to replace what you made great with their scars/

With no end in sight and can’t explain this part/

But I shine bright and remain in the stars. 

::EYES ON THE PRIZE::

They tried to defeat me and write me off/

But learning lessons aren’t like a loss/

For every reaction there’s a cause/

For every action no doubt there’s a cost…

I survived through the dark and the noise/

My heart even when broken kept me poised/

Taking chances… 

Falling down and getting up only takes advances/

Me and the hard times are like those hate&love romances/

I don’t live for the questions… 

I only find the answers/

Knowing difficulties are around the corner and won’t vanish/

I’ve done taken damage/

Been taken advantage/

But my roar is savage/

My will is isn’t average/

Still some wonder how I manage/

My character describes what this man is/

Those open hands is… Bad biz/

I can’t part for those not in my faction/

Not even a fraction/

Steady eyes on the prize with no distractions/

Can’t give up till I make it happen/

Haters laughing and doubt with an evil passion/

Reason I keep a smile on my face and keep passing/

On my way to the top of that mountain of my revival/

It’s been a key to my survival/

To push through and fight their denial. 

::SOULMATE::

  
So you’re soulmates/

Yea….That’s so great/

So we’re we… That’s no fate/

No faith… No taste… Wait… No wait/

Speeding things up and showed faith/

Hold up…time out… this is no race/

Screw things up now you won’t show face/

Holed up and heart held captive for no place/

No responsibility, it’s show you have no grace/

I hope they know how to go from being great to being replaced/

Free ride for love but your a heartbreak cheapskate/

Bad memories are worse when their a keep sake/

Arguments and name calling, now we need space/

But what I wished for couldn’t be erased/

Lesson learnt… And your the teachers name/

What’s love… Really what’s your love… You should be ashamed/

Soulmate. Sold faith. Soulmate. So great. Soulmate. Takes no blame. Soulmate. No remains. Soulmate. Oh wait. Soulmate. Two faced. Soulmate…Not to one but so many who don’t know until it’s too late.  

 

::LOVE FOR ANOTHER::

Love in touch then in sense
Quiver from heart rate tense
Slowly quickly falling harder
Nothing better evolved from
Hello hi bye to talk later
But good nights couldn’t be greater
Hard to stay arguments fights
Broken hearts want to take flight
Lost confused feeling used
Memories thoughts of us two
Erased placed hidden for others
Suffered pondered and always wondered…
How could it be love for another.

::MEET YOU:: 

Truth is, I can see your evil

Didn’t think it existed in people

But your kiss was toxic 

And your supposed love was lethal

And each innocent passing person 

Is a victim in a line of your sequels

Your soul is see through

Your heart black with no equal 

Do wrong but expect one to need you

And the only regret I have…

Is the day I left my house to meet you.

::STILL FINDING MY PEACE::

Streets are serene 
Filled with chatter 
Bumping around the crowds
Looking for what matters
I’m lost before I’m found
Searching for an old sound 

I want to feel at ease
Hearing your voice 
Still finding my peace 

And they say it isn’t love
Till your heart bleeds
They’ll say it never was
Till every ounce of it leaves 

Tell me before 
I close these doors
What was on your mind
I just need to know more
If you’ve held the truth in 
Why was it so easy to lie 

I want to feel at ease
Hearing your voice 
Still finding my peace 

And they say it isn’t love
Till your heart bleeds
They’ll say it never was
Till every ounce of it leaves

And

I refuse to break
Holding this fate
Knowing your face
Has to be replaced

And 

I refuse to take
Is it really too late
Knowing these mistakes
Have to be erased 

::TAKE US AWAY:: 

Remember skies bright 
Shining like lights 
Clouds came unannounced
And with heartbeat sounds
Confusing our ways 
Just like love songs gone astray

But…

Tomorrow is coming soon and I’m asking 
Can’t we just live for another day
Act like it never happened 
And let the memories take us away

Time to unpack thoughts make empty spaces
Beach waves to subway stations
Late nights filled with our ovations
The crowd starts to cheer us on 
The energy fills the room till its gone
Just one more time they want to hear our song

But…

Tomorrow is coming soon and I’m asking 
Can’t we just live for another day
Act like it never happened 
And let the memories take us away

First date
Kiss under the moon just wait 
For early morning walks 
And 3:30am long talks
Fighting through snow piles
It’s no wonder we haven’t found love in awhile
Favorite shows
Bus stops that go
On like forever…
Do you ever…
Dream of us together…
Just take us away.

::FIND WHATS RIGHT::

If you find yourself in these pages
Words matching up to these sayings
If you still find your heart beating
Those are the words and your soul meeting

But…

You’re so distracted from the good in life… The good in life
Why can’t you step back and look at life… Just look at life
To busy trying to find what’s wrong to find what’s right… Just find what’s right

Some day you’ll wake up from your dreams
And it won’t be what you always conceived it would be
You shouldn’t stand there questioning motives
In clouded thoughts making it hard to notice

But…

You’re so distracted from the good in life… The good in life
Why can’t you step back and look at life… Just look at life
To busy trying to find what’s wrong to find what’s right… Just find what’s right

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
One women’s loss is another women pleasure
It’s one life why should all our mistakes measure
And it’s no wonder they say never say never

::THE HEARTBREAK LAW::

Here’s the story…Here’s the story…

Here’s the story…
Ladies and gentlemen…

Grab a seat and sit back to this/

Maybe some of it will comes off as irrelevant/

A story about man and women…

And it was supposed to be so heaven sent/

But somewhere along the line… 

It got jumbled like how the letters get/

Pay attention to sentences and don’t lose your place/

Please allow me to trace the timetable like stars that grace our Space/

Indent and space paragraphs that won’t soon be replaced/

See this young man fell in love with a sweet face/

But he ain’t/

Or wasn’t…as I should say/

Prepared for the about face and all the craze/

But there he stood trying to chase…

Waterfalls/

And that’s when disorder calls/

It’s more like the laws of physics/

See he was physically and spiritually attracted to this misses/

Put big diamonds on her ring finger/

No doubt in his mind lingered/

Skin tone ginger/

Eyes that could tranquilize your inners/

Not for the faint of heart or beginners/

She went from hold to as cold as a New York winter/

Fastest than a New York minute and his ego was injured/

See the man had to remove all the splinters from his heart/

Vowed it would never again happen… His soul turned hard/

It wasn’t hard to see he was easily scar’d/

But he was a man no less so he was in charge/

Of his emotional and mental state that were held at large/

Looking into the sky he would tell the stars/

If I prayed for one day to have a love so endless/

How could you send this/

The stars replied…

Cause to understand love you must endure a pain so senseless/

Wait… Excuse me… Let’s just pretend this/

Never happened… But the star was relentless/

Cause the man had to learn from this lesson/

And it was…
Love never hurts and when it does it was real….

But it takes two to make it feel and give it that real appeal…

So some come and go and they might steal…

A piece of your heart and it will reveal…

A part of yourself you never saw…

And that’s called the heartbreak law.

::FAR TO GO::

I’ve been thinking lately…Maybe too much/

The truth is lady…

I can feel the love through us/

I’ll be right back baby…

But please don’t excuse us/

Where did I leave off maybe…

With words that would suit us/

I know you just…

Don’t understand where I’m coming from/

If your past is what your running from/

I got that slow down for you it ain’t nothing hun/

I been numerous things too except a number 1/

Yea I hear you…

That’s another one/

But you see the sun…

It’ll rise again/

We’ll feel alive inside again/

And in time again/

Your heart will feel the vibe again/

So let me nurture you like a vitamin/

Show you a side of the brighter men/

I know some ego’s derive from sin/

And you seen the worst of minds from men/

But I’m far more deep and you comprehend/

On end… It’s a new beginning/

Like news that’s so uplifting/

Like that new song i’m singing/

It’s a fine tune… We’re fine tuned/

And I’m loving it so much… 

I’m about to hit that rewind soon/

Be mine soon/

Flood my mind like a monsoon/

And erase all that I’ve gone through/

Yea I know this world is hostile/

But if you got me… I got you/

And that’s love plus props due/

I’m trying to meet mom and pops dukes/

Take time and see if you wanna rock too/

I got a lot to prove… Just so you know/

We here now… But still got so far to go.
