Take the Reins MAG

August 27, 2013

Circling insanity.
Fireflies awake.
Martyr of my vanity.
Stars start to shake.
On the floor, drawing the outline of the rejected chances.
With the sound of broken hearts, I get trapped in the dances.

I know that I'm dead. Bury me away.
I've had enough of average. Enough of okay.
I turn around to breathe, but nothing comes out.
These words are nothing but pains.
Rising above the priests and clergy devout.
Take the reins, my Lord, take the reins.

I must admit this sounds more like a poetic ballad than a song lyric. I love the flow because I could follow and feel every rhyme.

You have such heart in your poetry. I can tell you feel what you write. There's sadness in your work, but hope deep down. I love it, as usual. Amazing job:)))
