Let Me Weep

Let me weep.jpg

 

Let me weep

Let me weep that I may be satisfied

That I may flush out this pain deep within

Deep within my heart

This pain that causes me to…ohhhh!

This pain!

Birthed from betrayal, loss and grief

Let me weep!

Let me weep and rid myself of this filth

I don’t wish to choke

I just want to purge myself of this yoke

It’s heavy and it’s…it’s heavy!

It’s been five days now

And it’s been weighing me down

I feel twenty pounds heavier

Let me weep!

Let me get rid of this yoke!

It’s heavy!

Let the dam break

Let the tears pour

Oh, let them pour!

My heart weeps

My eyes leak

Let me weep until I can weep no more

Let me weep!

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE.jpg

The enemy at close range
Loyalty sold for a piece of meat, a coin or a good dose of gossip

 

The enemy at close range
A friend with evil intentions
Searching for loopholes

 

The enemy at close range
Embraces you with a smile
Helps you clean your gun
But pulls the trigger when you turn your back

 

The enemy at close range
Disguised as a sheep but as sly as a fox
Laughs with you at your table
But as soon as it’s dusk
He runs into the shadows to break bread with your mockers

 

The enemy at close range
Knows your every move
Hears your every word
Spills all your secrets

 

The enemy at close range
Breaks your heart without a warning
And gives you quinine in place of honey

 

The enemy at close range
Is a friend with evil intentions

WHO ARE YOU?

WHO ARE YOU..fw.png

 

Tell me

Who are you?

When you roll in the mud

And your white is soiled

Will you die in the mud?

Or will you look up to the Lord?

 

So who are you?

Tell me

Judas?

He knew sin

He did sin

He struggled with the guilt

And then it killed him

Thirty pieces of silver…the price of betrayal

He ended it at night

He gave up the fight

With no one in sight

He let the thread snap

 

So who are you?

Tell me

Peter?

Strong Peter slipped

He did sin

Three times he denied his King

The guilt enveloped his being

He wept so hard in repentance

But he didn’t give up at night

He waited for the morning

Cephas he was

He thrived

 

So tell me

Who are you?

When you roll in the mud

And your white is soiled

Will you die in the mud?

Or will you look up to the Lord?

IT’S ALL AN ACT

IT’S ALL AN ACT.jpg

I tell you I’ll be out of town

You wear a frown

But that’s all part of your plan

It’s all an act

You think I know not the fact

You try to fool me

You sob and plead

You beg me to stay home some more

To cancel my tour

You are such an actor

You hide the fact that you are a traitor

You carry my bags

You help me to the car

You tell me you love me

You cry…false tears

You hold my hands

You make endless promises

You cry some more

I kiss your teary cheeks

I feign sorrow

Your act I borrow

Knowing deep in my heart

Knowing you are a liar and a cheat

Knowing you are unfaithful

Knowing you mock our vows

Knowing your promises are empty

 Knowing all your secrets

Saying nothing

Acting innocent and dumb

Hoping our vows still mean something

You walk me to the car

You promise to stay away from the bar

But deep in my heart

I know you are a drunk

I know all your secrets

I know about your mistress

I’ve cried secrets tears in distress

But today it all ends

I’ve seen all the bends

Your secret routes and deeds

I would no longer play the fool

You’ve broken all the rules

But today it all ends

I won’t get into a fight

My future is so bright

I hold your hand so tight

I let a tear slip

I bid you goodbye
