I’m sure I have one,
Must have writ of it two or three times now.
Search through the pages,
It has to be here somehow.

Just click you heels three times,
And all of the tears go away.
The tornado did no damage,
And no one needs to pay.
I suppose we all will fall,
Assuming a fairytale.
As into an empty sunrise,
We all set sail.

It Will Never Dry


“It Will Never Dry”
I want you to remember,
The precious moments,
Without any of the,
Walk tall in the sun,
Slip past the shadows of before.
Like what you did,
Don’t matter anymore.
But I was there,
Held you safe in my arms.
Would have thrown down my life,
To keep you safe from harm.
But harm and hurt,
That is all you held when you held me.
So don’t believe you hide under any shadow,
Where I don’t see.
You got me,
Then strung me up, left me to bleed and die,
Blood like that I’m sorry,
It will never dry.

Cry Again


"Cry Again"
There are a great, great many,
Who’d think me meek.
Unable to stand even move,
After such a task that left me weak.
Ever a tiding of ill news,
I am neither, weak or meek.
There is only a sort of truth,
That I seek.
Not a form of absolution,
Just simply some recognition.
I mean I tossed my soul on the line,
For the simplest bit of recognition.
Yet I'm the foolish one,
Left out freezing to death in the cold,
When all I really sought was another heart,
To hold.
There are a great, great many,
Who’d think me meek.
Unable to stand even move,
After such a task that left me weak.
So many imagine me broken.
How surprised they’d be.
Shattered beyond belief.
Then only,
To shed tears with me in my relief.
The best stories,
Are always born to re-begin.
And these are eyes that will never,
Cry again.

A Silent Death


"A Silent Death"
~ ~ ~
I have led an average life
Never wanted much
Maybe once
Someone's touch
I have not held a child
While it was sick or dying
I have felt remorse
Spent many nights crying
There are many who could point
Point at me and say
You have never had loss
Not in that way
That so many experience loss
Lively-hood or limbs
For me it all comes back
To then
Something must have killed it
Like a zombie walking away
I remember a silent death
As he had nothing to say

Just Stone Now

"Just Stone Now"

So subtle
So pervasive
Slowly eternal
So invasive

Settling within
The soul of me
Too evasive
To be seen

It spreads, it shelters
Me in the stone
Cold and unfeeling
I am alone

As I move
Stone falls away
But there is no flesh left

Only the stone
Only the cold
Just stone now
Growing old

Rough and cracked
No beating heart
But certainly nothing
That can be torn apart

You took away,
My chance to forgive.
As I fell into you,
And you let me live.
Let me live in lies,
Inside unfathomable untruths.
Betraying everything,
I was taught in youth.
Still I wrapped you in my arms,
Surrendered my soul and heart.
All unknowing of how,
You’d rip my soul apart.

I suppose I should tip my hat to you.
You broke what couldn’t be broken.
I suppose you deserve some respect,
That at least must be true.
Danny Gunter


I pull the quill,
From the ink well,
For I do know,
That’s where memories dwell.

Press the tip against my chest,
Let my heart drip upon the page.
Be you twenty or fifty,
Sixty or seventy more,
Do you enjoy reading of before.

The past is writ in books,
Pages for the world to see.
High school and college give credit,
Learning the history.

But I’ve no pages,
Press the quill against my chest and I will bleed.
Just blood on the pages to blur the words.
While at the end there’s only greed.

I fell pray,
And so shall you.
After all forgive and forget.
That’s just what we do.

If I press the pen,
On the paper too hard.
I might speak to harshly,
Spatter blood on the crowd.

The pen might leak,
My voice might break.
And it might be a little bit more,
Than you can take.

My hopes blood,
Upon your skin.
I’d doubt your safely strapped,
For a trip back then.

But the rage fills my hand,
Courses my heart and arm.
With any careless phrase,
I’m far too happy to disarm.
If I just press the pen,
Or I scream too loud.
Speak so harshly,
I spatter blood on the crowd.

The stars themselves,
Are changing colors right before our eyes.
Look yourself you’ll know,
It isn’t lies.
Are we seeing the past?
Or beyond future events?
Are we meant to stay?
Or simply paying rent?
I know what I see.
The sky is different.
Should we offer some postage,
On this message that’s sent?

Tears Fall Hollow

"Tears Fall Hollow"

Tears fall hollow
Shatter like glass
Memories screaming anguish
Determined to last
Close your eyes
In search of peace
Dreams really nightmares
Refuse release
Stare at your reflection
Someone else is there
And the person looking in
Doesn't even care

Aside from all the pictures,
Our strongest recollections must be the voice.
Voice is like the fingerprint of a soul.
Specific and eternal recollections without choice.
You’ll never find another,
Who sounds exactly like.
There will never be another’s voice.
That makes this absence all right.
So we go on with echo’s in the corner.
Never quite sure if the voice is yours.
And between the silence,
Voice lets tears occur.
Never completely silent,
That voice just so strong.
Sailing salt water rivers.
Hoping to hear a voice that’s gone.

I love this song. When I am alone and I hear it, it makes me want to cry.

I would like to believe, that this is what a person who was so very significant that ex seems so harsh and shallow.
I would like to believe that this is what they would say to me if they actually looked into their heart.
But that is the romantic in me, because the truth is, I never mattered at all.
...this is hurt...
(I did not write any of this song or lyrics)
Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today
Ooh, ooh
I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done
Forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I wanna call you
But I know you won't be there
Ohh I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you
Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide 'cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye
When it comes to this, oooh
Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back
Ohh I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, ohh
If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I've missed you
Since you've been away
Ooh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line
To try and turn back time
I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you
"I'm so far passed hurt."
this lines mine...

Gone Now From Sight

"Gone Now From Sight"
The sun has faded
Gone now from sight
Eclipsed by a shadow
That put out it's light
Dark clouds have gathered
It seems they will stay
Even the stars are gone
They too have faded away
The clouds carry no wind
Even it too has died
Salty rains fall from the sky
Born of a dream that cried
The moon too has gone dark
Never again to shine
All lost with a love
That was never really mine

How can I float upon,
This spring of adornment?
Where out of obligation,
Sincere is ment?
Perhaps I say it wrong,
Or mayhap incorrectly write.
So hard to find the words,
I’m thinking of tonight.
I can rest upon the shoulders,
Of those who rightly should.
But never any rest,
In those who said they would.

Days have turned to months
Months have turned to years
I'm still so hollow
Still pouring tears
Tears have become rage
Rage has become fury
As if I were sentenced
With you judge and jury
Now imprisoned soulless
Deep in the ground
There is no light
There is no sound
Tired of silent screams
Too afraid of anyone near
Wasting my time
Wiping up tears
They just return
The tears always do
As my heart beats silently
Because of you
Danny Gunter
