Drifting along
In my journey with complacent
Of how life was forever to be
Why did you have to reach out
To me…

Turning a switch
That for so long
Had been turned off
Why did you have to reach out
To me…

Feeding my soul
With nothing but false hope
Of a connection that it thought was so real
Why did you have to reach out
To me…

Then through a sudden implosion it’s all over
The real purpose forever unknown
I’m now left to ponder these moments
Why did you have to reach out
To me…

I need you

Souldier Girl

i need you

I need you

To wash my body with your tears
I need you
To behold my vulnerability
As I deliver it and care for yours
so delicately
I need you to be a true friend
Let’s become a living definition
Of souls bonded in existence
I need you
To take this cigarette
And share it with me
While we stay up all night
With the moon at our feet
I need you
To walk this jagged edge with me
To revel openly
To love me silently
To trust intuitively
That fear is only a mockery
A jest to prevent your bravery
I won’t betray the secrecy
I’m offering my fragility
To a worth I see in your soliloquy
I am what you believe of me
Through shifting times
And changing skies
I offer this truth
I know you need me
Just as
I need you

i am tired

Words by Justin Case

i am tired

i’m in my autumn years
counting my regrets
making wishes
that time will not grant

i still have desires
the will is there
but my body
is broken

i have places to go
and people to see
but i’ll set them
all aside for now

as i wander i wonder
what will happen
to all my unfulfilled

will they vanish
as so many other
cherished memories
have done

but i cannot
shed any tears
for i am too tired
