“Hailstorms”

“Hailstorms” by HUGO [Hailstorms Music Video]

Hailstorms

Running out of time
Either get out or get in
Days are slipping by
Won’t wait to begin
Cause I’m losing
All my feathers in the wind

Digging out a memory
Of who I was before
And how I got involved
In this endless war
The ones who win
Don’t always need it more

I’m ready for release
I wait for the pain to come
I beg it to believe
Hailstorms coming
Baby bring it on

I’m waiting for the blow
I’m reaching out
To take what’s mine
Whichever way it rolls
I dance my way
Through hailstorms anytime

Staring in a mirror
Doesn’t get you very far
The people that I’m looking for
Out in the dark
Under city lights
You don’t see many stars

Crushing out a cigarette
Is all that I’ve done
Calling on my favors
Watch my bridges burn
I’m stepping out
Never to return

(repeat twice)
I’m ready for release
I wait for the pain to come
I beg it to believe
Hailstorms coming
Baby bring it on

I’m waiting for the blow
I’m reaching out
To take what’s mine
Whichever way it rolls
I dance my way
Through hailstorms anytime
Dance my way
Through hailstorms anytime
Dance my way
Through hailstorms anytime

Dance my way
Through hailstorms anytime

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge #55: “Five” & “Thrive”

“Universal Illumination”

REMEMBERING

The first words measured the time
The last words came with the rhyme
In between the words passing quickly
Circled the words of love
Fearing to be spoken
Scared they will be understood

No walking but forward
Further into your life
Walls faltering
Threatening to crash in
Just keep pushing toward the Light

The Light that brightens the Sun
Not the voice calling out
Notifying the end is done
Hold in your thoughts instead remembering
Near is as far as you want it to Be

“A person without…”

‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge #5
“A person without…”

'a' to 'z' writing prompt poster #5

A PERSON WITHOUT

A person without dreams
Belongs to nothing
Carrying light is heavy
Darkness is no stranger
Enter this world carefully
Fallen doorways broken forever
Great is the ruin left behind
Hatred brought it down
Identity matters too much
Jaded those lacking understanding
Killing has become too easy
Love is slipping away
Melting into quicksand
Never to be honored again
Opening one’s heart is forgotten
People want a line of words
Quickly delivered on devices
Rapping our way to Nothingness
Staying alone like lonely people
Thinking dreams appear in ads
Understanding absent brains
Victory to the corporations
Workers fastened again in chains
Xanthippe nags Socrates brain
Yanking his beard causing him pain
Zany the dream that war is a game
