The Fallen Angel

A fallen angel came to me, more nightmare than a dream,
But in her eyes I longed to see the good, so it would seem.

"Good can be subjective," she said.  "For good, you must be blind.
Ignore those voices in your head that make good so hard to find."

As always, my heart skipped a beat.  This time there was no doubt.
The truth, for once, was short and sweet...such 'good' I'll do without.

With Faith There is Tomorrow

While hope and dreams so often fade, with faith there is tomorrow -
A constant respite from the pain of life and all it's sorrow.

Favorite Sons (2008)

Same old tired rhetoric, empty promises abound.
Once again it's down to two, but no winners can be found.

History Channel Blues

While time is still a mystery to the mystics and the geeks,
Who then has shaped our history?  Why, the charlatans and freaks!

I really think you need a shrink the way you're acting now.
Each time I blink, you swear I wink and kiss me on the brow!

There may be heat, but we won't meet for even one night's play.
I know you're sweet, just not discreet, what would your husband say?

It's there each day inside of me, that overwhelming urge
To break from this reality in one last mental purge.

No longer in the here and now, perhaps I'll find my way.
At least, they'd know without a doubt I'm crazy anyway!

I'm desperate for an answer to the voices in my head.
All at once they speak to me, and I don't know what they said.

I've tried to pacify them, even tried to shut them out.
They seem so very bitter, but I don't know what about!
