Running From a Savior

Day by day I feel you start to slip
I try to tighten my grip…
But it always remains just to loose
Then I realize that you’re fighting
The stranger holding your arm
When I never meant you any harm
In your eyes…
I’m no longer the same…
I try calling your name…
But my voice is an unfamiliar sound
You don’t turn around
I walk away with my head down
What we were is all I ever wanted to be
Now it’s just a memory
You don’t know me…
Not anymore…
I really deplore
The way things are now
I don’t know how
They ever got this way
I thought you would always stay
I hope everything will be alright
I hope I make it through the lonely nights
I hope I don’t shed too many tears
Wishing you were still here
Then I remember
That at the end of my rope
I had almost given up hope
Today…
I let my white horse run away
And I hang up my armor
Because I could no longer save the day
I wish I could go back in time
Back to when you where mine
Back to the time that I…
I felt alive

Speed Bump

She’s always been there to slow me down

My speed bump

When I was on a path that would destroy me

She showed up

I slowed down to get to know her

Until an unforeseen crossroad

Caused us to part

Open road lay before me again

And I mashed that gas pedal

All the way to the floor

I could barely make shapes

As objects zoomed by my windows

Gone was I again

But again she came to my aid

My speed bump

Always there in the nick of time

To save me from myself

When things start to go crazy

When things are moving to fast

My thoughts

My memories

I call her

And

Everything. Slows. Down.

Then it hits me

My moment of clarity

Saved again

By my spe3d bump
