    Can I love you?
    Will it ever be possible to hold such a spirit to one thing?
    I feel you so far away yet always so close you are but inches from my grasp.
    Your dreams become mine as our thoughts weave together in a web of mystery and unison.
    Time has no holds, as eternity is what I ask for.
    The distance so trivial to the issues that lye ahead.
    Will love be a truth they can accept?
    Does my time here make difference to our happiness?
    Feel no more, no less, towards him of his years past.
    Will it lurk as a ghost of decisions past?
    Feel the breath of lovers forgotten and mothers breathe on my spine.
    Sweet innocent be unaffected, stay pure.
    Let the content of your keeper touch you not.
    Fly always to the arms of love and hear no lies spoken.
    Be safe child in the grasp of those who cast deceit.


    And what of those who wear but circles of promises?
    Shall you always feel pain at betrayal's knees?
    Is it just to disclose to you the time between us spent?
    Shall daggers of truth dig deeper that swords of shadowed lies?
    And what of the path the angel will fly?
    Shall it lead to the arms of those waiting?
    Fly free to the heavens sweet angel, peace be known at distance to those that surround you.
    Find a lost personality and reclaim it for your own.

    Hold me deeply tonight, silent angel.
    Let your voice be heard in due time.
    May it cry to the gods of your love for a lady.
    May it shatter the walls around you and free you to fly once again.
    Open your cage dear angel, the key is but within your fingers.
    Find wind beneath broken wings and sail to what you have longed many a nights for.
    Cry softly at the twinge of guilt and frustration.
    Blind eyes shall never see.
    When sight be lost, cry loudly to the ear, as understanding lurks deeply within a soul.
    Struggle fiercely against your bonds strong angel; the ropes grow weaker with every fight.
    Fly swiftly to the arms that welcome, hold and trust.
    Love will set us free.

    Very Nice... Love can be a truth. Truth can be a love. Either way you flip it. True.

    I see how deep truth cuts. But if the truth lay within. You can feel the penetration. On every level. Eyes will see.

    You.

    Look in the mirror. I see a reflection coming back at me. Reverse image. It doesn't appear that way. Going through once. Flip. Come thru twice. Things look right. I understand.

    If you were stronger than me. If I allowed my self to be taken by the hand. But my will is too strong for that. Words spoken cut like a knife. Holding false witness. To the truth. Call the witness in you. My word against the masses. Yet false eyes can't see.

    As I look into your eyes. I want that reflection only you can give. I mirror for you. Do the same for me. Without a word spoken. I can see the truth.
