I see a sky of white and magenta, violet and pink.

Lilac colors that sing for me the sweetest lullabies that set me deep into sleep.

On puffy clouds that sit up high, it makes me feel like I’m on top of the world.


I was given time and it was set all right.

It was always out of sight.

It was always out of mind but I had to lose a piece of my mind if I hadn’t lost it already to discover the colors that dance with my emotions. Hand in hand to the voice of the ocean. With the wind that blows too strong for the screeching seagulls to fly, too cold for people to be.

And all the waves that crash against rocks creating the sounds of thunder it makes wonder how do I forget all that I remember is all that I´ve learned it will stay with me forever. The universe is crashing and the world continues spinning. I can't pinpoint my focus on the souls swimming through the sea of colors.

And the water sits still reflecting the letters the stars have spilled.


I would dive right in if I hadn’t jumped off the deep end already.

I wouldn’t let the salt fill me.

I wouldn’t give in just to go under.

The burning sensation of the rage and impatience.

I know what is right and

I know what is wrong but I see colors on both ends now. Tell me how can I tell the difference.

I think I need another chance to think, I think I need another chance not that I deserve it. Not that I’m worthy. I’m thinking too much and feeling too little but I know that if tomorrow comes wouldn’t let fear get the best of me I wouldn’t. No I swear I wouldn’t...All the broken and imperfect find peace within the warmth of the harmonies.

I have a heart that aches but it still sings the melody.

I have been given more than I can take and I don't think that I can last another day.

But I demand for my heart to beat down like the rain, for it to keep me on my feet-keep me on my feet at least for another day...don't let me sway, beat down like the rain.

What I want is only what I'm needing the grasp of your hands, I don't want to leave.

I've left only to turn and face disappointment again.

Mixed and wet I'm dripping every shade all at once. Footprints of black and grey, brown like dirt.

All the mess I've made is nothing like the colors in the sky


White-Magenta-Violet-Pink.

Lilac colors that sing for me the sweetest lullabies that set me deep into sleep.

On puffy clouds that sit up high, make me feel like I’m on top of the world.
