The girl who wants to make you laugh,
or the child that makes you cry.
The words that come out thru’ your eyes,
the tears that make you smile.

Tell me - have you ever smiled on tears,
and emotions - that teach you nothing but lies..
have you ever tried to love?
Ever tried to fly??

Tell me ’cause I’m a lonely traveller,
In a land more beautiful than dreams.
Tell me - so that I take back the gift,
- a souvenir of dreams..

Always tried - tried..to be a human
-cried when the child cried,
-wanted always to be oh human,
-turned out to be a machine..

Have always wanted to share my love,
have always been too shy..
Always wanted to share with everyone,
But - failure makes me die..

Save me ”cause I am a lonely traveller,
In a land of barriers and screams.
Save me ’cause I have loved everyone,
In your land - stranger than dreams..

  5. You have not failed love, love has failed you. Take no flight on tears and smile with them no more. It is better to travel on feet than wings at times.

  6. wow. this is very beautiful. Looking for love does leave you open to being fooled by your emotions.

    very cool.. glad I found your blog

  7. My favourite verse yet - to me there is just something so primitive about it, something that speaks through the ages.

  8. Thank you all so much for your lovely comments.

    Mark,
    I can not walk
    I try
    But for some weird reason
    can only fly
    I don’t know why
    Maybe God gave me no feet
    But only a heart so
    I could feel
    And try
    Because its never
    Whats been done bad
    Yes,
    Its never what was done
    But what’s left undone
    That keeps me up nights
    even though broken
    I flap full speed ahead
    Towards the light
    Through this night
    I know the dawn is imminent
    - mine -

    (Hey do you think this answer could be my next post hmm :)

    Dear fiveloaf,
