To the stolen heart

Give love a chance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give love a chance, old heart of mine !
You need some peace to draw the line
To their rebirth, to the new dawn
To rise at last, no more alone !

Let go of fear, of your distress,
Open the door to happiness,
Pray for the day, pray for the rain
To set us free, away from pain !

This is the plan, the infinite,
Love and let love, that is the key,
Don’t ask for more and be careful
Don’t ask the score, don’t play the fool !

Doubt and faith

I wonder when I will go home,
Will I always be alone ?
Temptation is strong and bold,
While I feel so cold and old…

And the hurricane is coming,
So I have to strengthen up,
So I should believe in praying
When my heart is full of doubt,

Should I listen to everyone
When they say you’re not the one ?
When they say I’ve never loved you,
Who am I when it sounds true ?

I’m feeling like the worst person
Who has lived under the sun,
What if I’m the prodigal son…
When will I be forgiven ?

God is love, that is my faith,
I hope I will see His face,
Perhaps I already have,
But my death has made me cry.

A little hope

 

A little hope

On a day like today, saddened and grey,
The cloudy skies wouldn’t tell me a lie,
Death angel spoke to me all of the night,
I’d better say how I became insane…

I smoked too much with my friend Mary Jane,
I fell in love at my reflection’s sight,
On a day like today, saddened and grey
The cloudy skies wouldn’t tell me a lie.

Will I remain as a narcissus may ?
Will I wither ? Will I see paradise ?
Perhaps some wings will take me to the skies,
Perhaps I will fly away if I may
On a day like today, saddened and grey…

Dreams

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’re upside down like a dead bouquet
You have wilted though you are all wet
Ten years from now you have fallen down
So that you wander with a dark frown

You want to live but you can’t wake up
You want to leave but you can’t get up
Deep in the sea you will fill your cup
With all the dreams that you can’t give up !

He’s in your heart just like a black hole
But you’re apart and you can’t feel whole
The Day of Retribution’s everyday
For he’s repeating that you have to pay !

You want to live but you can’t wake up
You want to leave but you can’t get up
Deep in the sea you will fill your cup
With all the dreams that you can’t give up !

It gets much worse as you play with fire
Nothing is worth it when your soul’s on hire
You’re not over with dark adaptation
All that you need is a new Creation…

You want to live but you can’t wake up
You want to leave but you can’t get up
Deep in the sea you will fill your cup
With all the dreams that you can’t give up !

The trial

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was so crazy for you
That I have played the jester,
And I’ve been paying the price,
But I’ve never got over it !

And today I am begging you
To stop harassing me this way,
Even if you love me and pray
For me to finally live my life
So that I cease to be gone
In smoke !

Because I don’t know anymore
How to cope with such a despair,
I lost my way and I see now
That I have been sentenced to death…

If happiness exists on Earth,
May I touch it with my finger
While I fear so much what I must,
When I’m not straight in any way ?!

I dream of future in exile,
But the kingdom’s shadowing me
As a criminal on the run
Who’s playing dice with his own life…

I’m still looking for a witness
Who could clear me innocent
Or simply console me at least,
Someone who would lend me a hand.

Goodbye to fear

 

I’m saying goodbye to fear,

Goodbye to the wasted years,
I’ll learn to be clear
To cross all the new frontiers…

I’ll let go of all the pain
That has driven me insane,
I’ll remember that my dream
Is to be a sunbeam !

For we all are starlight,
We can shine through the night,
We can feel all our might
And enjoy this delight…

Brown butterfly

 

This afternoon, a butterfly
Caught my eye suddenly a while
It was trapped in a spiderweb
So I helped it to get away

The strangest thing happened just then
It was flying all around me
As if it couldn’t find his way
Or was it only greeting me ?

He went in and out the window
Coming and going round and round
Like he was searching high and low
As if to get lost he was bound

He even came back to the web
Was he looking for the spider
So that it could have its way ?
Perhaps he wouldn’t remember

I’m not sure he looked out for me
Though I tried to help him outside
But my heart felt so damn heavy
That I wondered what wasn’t right…

Should I kill him out of mercy ?
Or should I wait for the cool night ?
His feelers broken probably
He was flying around in fright…

The smoker’s blues

So many odd things I have done,
So many things I thought I knew,
But what do I know now ?

Not a thing’s like it used to be,
I thought I could be in control…
I’ve been put on parole !

Much much too long since that promise,
And not the slimmest glimpse of bliss,
Only an old disease.

So many things I thought I knew,
So many odd things I have done,
But what do I know now ?

Not a thing seems to be familiar,
Except I have been called a liar,
So what shall I do now ?

I shouldn’t be smoking at all,
I should be kind, I should stand tall,
But what good am I now ?

When I cling on my cigarette,
When I wish that I could forget,
I’m feeling remorse now.

Wonder where this night will take me,
Wonder when I’ll be truly free,
But the rain won’t stop now !

Somewhere there must be a rainbow,
A ray of sunshine, let me glow,
Or where will I go now ?

Summertime is a mistery,
And I must learn from history,
Roses are in bloom now !

So many odd things I have done,
So many things I knew would come,
But what do I know now ?

I know that I nearly can’t breathe,
This opportunity’s to seize,
I should know better now

Hello everyone

Hello everyone,

I’m a french guy writing poetry both in french and english (you’ll have to pardon my mistakes). I’m joining the wordpress community thanks to a dear friend (Chaytana) who’s also joined in the 20 lines or less community (which I recommend you). Perhaps I’m more a lyricist in english than a true poet, you’ll have to find out for yourself. Anyway, I intend to edit a new post everyblack and white dragonfly day if possible, and I hope you will come here often to read and comment while I will answer you every time…So welcome to the black and white dragonfly’s space, enjoy !

Antoine
