lyrics

Standing at the edge of the precipice,
Planning the next steps to this
Demanding quest to give this man’s life he lives
The commanding balance amidst the pitfalls and challenges.
Try to resist slipping & falling upon the talons
Of this barbed wire tight rope,
Starting higher than the height of hope
In this dire heart dying in the night on his own.
Preparing to take another set of shaky first steps
Realizing it time to go the fight alone.
Scared, as I’m barely inhaling my worried breath—
Open eyes—
Trying to guide my blind sight to hone
Awareness to awake from this certain death
Where I bury the time to type songs & poems
Along with these strong bones
Of an old man unfolding—
Reforming—
As long as I don’t deny my life’s defining light and stop growing
& writing these ole omens.
Slowly eroding,
Unknowingly letting go and forgetting the potential I’m holding,
‘Til I collect what’s essential and get my ass going….

Try to resist slipping & falling upon the talons
Of this barbed wire tight rope,
Starting higher than the height of hope
In this dire heart dying in the night on his own.

Preparing to take another set of shaky first steps
Realizing it time to go the fight alone.
Scared, as I'm barely inhaling my worried breath—
Open eyes, trying to guide my hindsight to hone
AWARENESS...

As if You told me so,
Nobly growing in forward motion goes to show
The emotional commotion of the lonely road
Only requires what you need to soulfully inspire
The gullible child’s vulnerable mind,
To weed out the lowly liar in you,
Who’s so vile & crude,
Whose sole desire’s to control you’re whole entire view--
Skewing all you knew,
Misconstruing your Truth,
In your deepest Being
By conspiring to beat you till you bleed beneath your beliefs.
Seek the seeds that breed the branches and leaves
That wholly rewire your chances to succeed in catching your dreams. Fusing the roots with a higher frequency feed—
Releasing the fiery freak in me free,
As I’m seeking a peaceful seat wherever I please to be,
Resting my bleeding feet to eagerly read
The day’s fresh pages of these nameless fables
Under the ample shade of my ageless Maple tree.
Will you carve your initials with me together?
Don’t wanna carve your initials in me?
Whatever…
A.S.P. & A.S.P 4eva…

(It’s all I need…)

Try to resist slipping & falling upon the talons
Of this barbed wire tight rope,
Starting higher than the height of hope
In this dire heart designing the night on his own.

Preparing to take another set of shaky first steps
Realizing it time to go the fight alone.
Scared, as I"m barely inhaling my hurried breath—
Slowing down—
Rebuilding strength—
Aligning my guiding light to hone
AWARENESS...

(Will you carve your initials with me?)

(Will you carve your initials in me?)

(No more MaGiK. A.S.P. asking to let go of S.O.S.)

Grateful to be no longer meek or meager, indeed.
Stressed relieved
To receive the pieces of me not always easy or pleasing to see
In this deceiving reality.
Real is not what it always seems as we make it to be.
Mistakenly believing our forsaken feelings;
Un-awakened of the realness concealed in the dealings of healing our weakness.
As I’m reaching across these lost speeches
Full of fraught dawdling;
I’m foolishly caught crawling
On the breaking beams & cables of this shaky rickety bridge,
Suspended across lost opportunities along the ridges of our heart’s rigidness,
Swaying between the edges of our frigid river of tears’ rigorously twisting bend.
I’m clearly living in between the deepening distance
Of our blistering lips
Conveying the whispering winds,
Hearing unsent Love notes of me reminiscing & missing You again.

Steady your grip and gingerly step
To deliver this brilliant gift at the bridge we’re building
Starting just ahead,
Linking the rift from our heart and our head.
But first we must narrowly escape the fateful patterns
That become entangled when the Love that matters
Is fractured and left hanging by a marginal shred
of shattered memories,
Surviving from getting lost in an alarming, harrowing dream
Where I’ve been brazenly chasing a falling figment of me—
Gripped slipped from a vision of We,
Impatiently, wondering if this is a blunder I die in—
Or awake in the morning with a warning,
Realizing I’ve been trying to decide on an implausibility.
How will I define the probability for finding
(You)
An impossibility?

Try to resist slipping & falling upon the talons
Of this barbed wire tight rope,
Starting higher than the height of hope
In this dire heart reviving his life on his own.

Preparing to take another set of shaky first steps
Realizing it time to go the fight alone.
Cherishing, inhaling my first breath,
Open eyes, guiding my mindful sight tonight to hone
AWARENESS.

Restarting the will in me that wants to be free.
Pausing while watching autumn leaves
Gracefully fall with ease from these ancient Maple trees.
Feeling the nor-easterly breeze of your whispering tease.
Softening to release what’s seemingly stuck now,
But not completely out of reach.
Starting the healing to cut out
What I doubt I really need—
Stop expecting.
Start accepting,
While respecting
How the journey is yearning for me to learn that
The Purification is the Blessing in-action;
Endure with patience this Graceful test passing,
The curious wait to state the Question
This Answer has all-ways been asking.
