The bird of truth comes calling
His wings are firm and strong
But his honesty keeps him from falling

His words flow out like a song
His loyalty in rhythm and rhyme
His wings are firm and strong

A sincerity that's been lost in time
Making us long for days of old
His loyalty in rhythm and rhyme

When tales and stories were told
And we hung on every word
Making us long for days of old

Now this gentle reminder from a bird
Forcing reality to the front
And we hung on every word

Today's hate and anger too blunt
The bird of truth comes calling
Forcing reality to the front
But his honesty keeps him from falling.    JD

I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you
Yes there's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you
I've seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too

I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you

No one understands me quite like you do
Through all of the shadowy corners of me

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop
I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you
Yes there's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you
I've seen the waters that make your eyes shine
Now I'm shining too

Because oh because
I've fallen quite hard over you

LET'S FALL IN LOVE

Cause you... Gave me something that I crave...

If I trace this further you get the same... Emotions... I'd change your mind.

When the sun goes down and lights go out...
I can hear your voice but there's no sound...

So I shut my mouth and drown you out...

I don't have a choice.
I can hear your voice, but there's no sound

"No Sound" - FABV & MINDEAM

And I don't have... any wishes
But when I kiss ya
Our lips fit well

And I don't have... expectations
But when I daydream
I fall asleep
And our hands melt

I'm done
I'm done with being played like a fiddle
I'm done with being played like a drum
I'm done with being played like a violin
I'm just done

I'm done with being played like a guitar
I'm done with being played like saxophone
I'm done with being played like a viola
I'm done with being played like an idiophone

I'm done with being played
That is all
I'm done
I'm not a hoop that's waiting for its ball

I'm just done
My heart has had enough of being played
My mind has had enough of being played
My body has had enough of being played
I'm. Just. Done.

I'm not someone you play with and get away with playing, at the end of the day
Like I said, I'm not an instrument of pleasure nor am I a sport

I run to escape

        The fire that burns inside

                   That rain can't put out.

JD


*Escape; No Escape*

A haiku (3 line poem with 5,7,5 syllable line structure)
#FireAndRain for the #Aug19WEchallenge #SongTitlePoetry

I heard this song on my very long ride home from Ohio a few weeks ago and it made me think of my mother because although I knew her 'time' was coming, I always thought that I'd see her one more time again - the pain and guilt ignites a fire that no run or any amount of rain will ever be able to put out

And yes, 'fire' is 2 syllables

The Late night music thought...
The energy is immeasurable...
Sometimes the whole bunch of people cant make you feel anything what one song from your memory lane can!

And no matter how moved on your life has turned but that song always and always will remind you of that particular person!

Music is my passion, its there when noone else is and alone in mind
Sometimes it's the lyrics or just the instrumentals that suits my kind
It's helps the sadness making it bearable to breathe
Running deep through my veins it silently weaves
So what my hero doesnt wear a cape or flies through the air
I think mines better playing his guitar and saving me through his lyrics and flair
So many songs have saved my life when I wanted nothing more than to die
Musicians are my true life hero and Now you see why

This song is for my favorite female artist - Adele (although I know she writes her own lyrics, and probably will never get a chance to read this, but still, this is for her...)

                       "Dream"

   Too many years have passed
    Since I saw your pretty face
             Bright as a dream,
           Took me to the place
      Where two worlds colllide.

          And yet slightly I slide
Down that rollercoaster of mine
       Hiding my feelings aside
in the darkest corner of my mind
          believing we'll be fine,
     By naming ourselves friends.

What is love?

    What Is Love?

Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me
No more
What is love?
Yeah
I don't know why you're not fair
I give you my love, but you don't care
So what is right and what is wrong?
Gimme a sign
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
Oh, I don't know, what can I do?
What else can I say, it's up to you
I know we're one, just me and you
I can't go on
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
What is love?
What is love?
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
No more
Don't hurt me

this song is for HRVY

Somebody-kashvi
every morning there's a crowd
to look at you
every girl dreams to be with you
and I can't keep the world
from loving you
but I want to be the one
who you'll love

and I might be anybody
but I'm not a nobody
and I can be somebody
I can be somebody to love you

every time I look at you
I can't calm me down
every step that I take
I want you to be around
and I can't keep the world
from loving you
but I wanna be the one
who'll you love

and I might be anybody
but I'm not a nobody
and I can be somebody
I can be somebody to love you

You sound like freedom
And racing with the wind blowing
Against my naked face
And take me to worlds I could not
See on a map

                     The Truth

Crave for freedom, pray for privacy.
This life is a, travesty. My life is flying away from my eyes and i just sit and do nothing.
Oh lord, give me strength, give me thy power. Why have we all become so sour, in our thoughts or the way we look at everything? Is it the way we were raised or the way we were tailored? Our mind is getting tapered, layered with hate, rage and
animosity.

For J. Cole.

He conocido un sinfín de desastres a lo largo de mi vida, cada uno con cualidades distintas.
* El desastre número tres, lloraba mucho, no lo niego, sufría bastante, sin embargo, a diferencia de los otros dos, encontró su escape a través de de una guitarra y unos versos líricos. Descrita como arte, pero uno de los más bonitos.
