Stones

Hard to face an enemy with arrows
Eyes to ground, move back but still he follows
Try to make a list of the cons and pros
Every step sinking deeper into holes
Crying only reaches more lost souls
The devil whispers “this is the life you chose”
Picking every thorn off of your rose
But darling I warned you not to get close
This side of town contains mostly lows
This is where hope comes to decompose
He’s laughing now like it’s one of his jokes
Breaking me is always one of his goals
My sins always haunting my shadows
It’s so heavy these stones I carry alone on these roads

  1. Powerful thoughts’…. reminds me of the start to a Sean Rowe song, “A Lonely Maze”
    “Oh I’ll never get to the moon
    But I’ve seen the universe in a blade of grass
    Oh I’ve built my questions a raft
    And I send them floating there on a lake of glass
    And though this weight is like a stone
    It is hard to drop the things I’ve come to know’

  2. I was afraid to share this one, but then again, I kind of feel that way about sharing any of them. So I am grateful for your feedback. I will have to check out the song. 🙂
