I was alive once with you

I’m just a burned sun
You’re what you’ve done
I’m without love
For you
Redemption is gone

 
I’m still the one
You’re who you’ve become
I’m without fun
For you
Absolution is gone

 
No need for longing
It’s gone
No place for hoping
It was wrapped and sent away
To the unknown one

 
I’m just a scorched planet
You’re who saves only herself
I’m without resentment
For you
Eternity is lost unreported

 
I’m still saving the days
You’re wasting the nights
I’m bravering my mind
For my
Own worth matters too in life

 
I’m not your alchemist anymore
I couldn’t turn your lead to gold
You’re ain’t my Messiah either
You didn’t hold my tether
But I’ve found myself
In the desert
Where we’d burnt everything

 
I’ll miss your morning star that darkened the sky
I’ll miss all your failures that broke my heart
I’ll miss your imperfections that showed you complete
I’ll miss your body that made me feel
I was alive
Once
With you
I was alive
Once
With you

You never wanted me

You never wanted me

Just my illusion

A painted shade

On the wall of lovers

 

Our game was meant to be life

We took it too seriously

And went too far

By now separately

 

Words cannot be trusted

There is no more wisdom to earn

Mistaken patience paralyzed

And stopped us to grow

 

Togetherness is an ideal

Not meant to be reached

For those who are abandoned

And live in broken dreams

 

I’m relieving to take a breath

That’s all I have left

Enough to be a good man

And find a kind of happiness

Bird of Love

bird of love
where’s the bird of love
now
has it flown away
or
never been
here
at all

 
past is haunting
every day
living in
a bad daydream
nevermore
says the crow
I don’t wanna face
this facade show
because
you’re the Sun
in my life
you’re the magic
and despite all
what went wrong
I still love you
I still have hope
forevermore

remember the good times

remember the good times

remember the holy ground

where we stood and stayed

danced and kissed

through the night

 

remember the good times

but

all the years are gone now

remember the good times

but you

never said why you left

remember the good times

how we dreamt and yet survived

and

how we broke everything

what was nice and so dear

now we know every pain

 

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows, nobody knows

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows me, nobody knows me

Drifting

There is a black hole in me

Without singularity

Fragments of life

Say me goodbye

Unreliable memories

Drifting in space

Who could be

You

Wasted me

I can’t embrace

The dead

Any more

Where would you be

If I were still alive

For you

Where would you be

If I were still there

I cannot be

The scent of your garden

Is broken history

 
I’m lonely and lost

I have everything I don’t need

Now, I am free (Separate togetherness)

I’ve walked on a long, cold, muddy road
I’ve thought light is in your hand you hold
But there was only shades of the night
I became empty, ran out of life

 

You were my temple, religion
You were hope and future illusion
But just lies and grand dellusions
You won freaking, rigged game of yours

 

Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
eternity

 

I’m still on the cross, don’t get me wrong
I’m bleeding through all my bloody, deep holes
But I choose to be here, you see
I’m breaking the cycle of endless vanity

 

You can see the world as it goes
You can play your dreams in rabbit holes
You won’t be who you could be
If you don’t look farther than your pain

 

Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
eternity

 

We are different galaxies
We have whole different needs
We say and claim different truths
We shall see beyond or lose

 

Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
without you
eternity

(from the “Break-up Therapy”)

Where is the direction

Where is the direction

I feel I’m lost

What is the way

I’ve forgotten

 

I was supposed to win

Every battle

Now I’m drifting

Through the time

 

Sometimes I wish

I knew

How to undo all

I’ve misdone

 

It’s not like that

I’m crying

I’m too stubborn

To admit

 

Where is my game

Playing

To know is all

I’ve ever wanted

 

I wonder if the flowers

Will dry out again

 

 

Joshua Dragon

I know that you never loved me

I know that you never loved me

You never knew how to love

Truly

How could you give

What never been yours

 

Just and unconcious mind

And a sometimes shining heart

That’s what we were

To each other

 

We took more than we gave

Because we needed to

Survive

Since we never knew how to live

Just to be images

Of a shattered vision

 

Surrogates to our true selves

Which we were hiding

That’s what we were

Expected images

Of the life around

 

I know that you never loved me

You never knew how to love

Truly

I’m just praying these days

For you to recognize
