Turtle

Empty words

Empty words echo off these eager ears,

forged from the lies being told for years.

Tears they tumble from a tattered mind,

and I almost believe the lies of time.

My heart stops and stutters for you,

loses it's beat just to gallop for you.

You fade to the shadows saying my name,

and become the mist to dissipate the shame.

Tongue tied and tattered these lies have shattered.

two hearts to pieces like it never mattered.

Yet still your echo sprays in the mist,

lost in the shade of the shadows that kiss.

Your loyalties died in the smoke of a lie,

yet you cry when you let them fly.

Why I ask? can you feel the pain,

watching the smoke as it falls like rain.

Not a drop of blame splashes your soul,

the toll of your lies have taken control.

Now falling stalling still calling my name,

my answer it feeds your cancerous game.

Though lame and weak my heart speaks out,

my mind says no so tangled with doubt.

I look in your eyes and they do not lie,

so vacant and blue like a cloudless sky.

Lost and alone so full of fear,

I'm here my dear the ground is near.

Take a step forward toward tomorrow,

we'll swim together  we'll weather this sorrow.

Step off the edge and fall with me,

let go of your fear and live you'll see.

Love has wings we are the breeze,

riding the zephyr with amazing eaze.

So fall with me into the abyss,

where the shadows dance and some how kiss.

I'm no longer hear I'm all ready gone,

waiting for you upon the dawn.
