Never For Long

He has a transient heart

Never to stay in one place

He’ll leave you when you love him

For him that is time to move on

Never letting his guard down

Always keeping things light

But the minute he sees

Your love for him is real

He packs up and leaves

Ready for the next good time

Let Me Off Of This Ride

The feeling is dragging me down

Deeper and deeper into the darkness

Your silence

Chaos of life

And self-loathing

Rip me apart

But I know I will get through it

The rough days are only temporary

I will get to the other side

Like I have been before

If I can just hold on to the ride until then
