Some say I need a dose of reality
Sorry, I’m unavailable
Too lost and not looking for direction
I’m sliding off the map
Into imaginary adventures
Sailing into the unknown
Found focus reflected in dreams
Reality, don’t come looking for me

You’re right next to me
But I’m in solitude
My needs raw and nude
We’re so close
Yet so far apart
It tears at my heart
Can you feel me
Sense our separation
Our loves damnation
I’m slipping past
The invisible barrier
Into my chaotic mind
Going completely offline

Twilight is our time
Leave worries for dawn
At dusk our dreams
Spread and illuminate
You’re my stunning sunset
Become my sultry night
Fall into my darkness
I’ll catch your love and lust
His kisses promise
A tender, melting magic
It’s all an illusion
His hellos mean goodbye
It doesn’t matter
I urge him to show me
His teasing tricks

Deprived dark lullabies
Sing a nefarious sinful symphony
Behind her corseted shy smile
The foreign moody melody calls
To his private passions
Clearing cold cobwebs
From his hardened heart
In a crescendo of deep desire

The American Dream
Is losing steam
It’s time to apprise
Revise and realize
Forget anger and division
Seek a new vision
Skip the white picket fences
Let’s come to our senses
Remember the dove
It’s a symbol of love
Let’s heal not hate
So much is at stake

We are free but there is no freedom
When we live in fear
We crawl into the cage of our making
Pushed in by the hand of panic
And locked with terror
The bars are made of trembling dread
We wait for someone to let us out
Never realizing we hold the key
