“Silent Applause” by Slings & Arrows

This is my journey end
a start to finish my wish
a place where solitary is my carnival
a taste of purpose
all said is done
between the two
who rest on trust
to be still with ground uncommon to most
applause gift the few
silenced in beauty
I am your crowd
in single number
you
throw me to the lions
of self believe
what am I to do
with my silent applause

“Secrets & Forevers” by Slings & Arrows

A kiss to you my sweet
taste me your finest
dance my tongue on your appetite
you hold me in blue
against your heart of petal
song my bird in tune
in bloom I breathe so full of you

I hear you play with elegance
a women’s touch is my executioner
brave my heart to taste your mood
your temper will flame my will

This is my only hope
to brush against you
in secrets and forevers

“All Mine” by Slings & Arrows

 

 

It is the strength in me that lets me stand in front of you
not my money or my looks
though it helps to be rough around the edges
this I have learned from you
my mind counts your heartbeats
paints them into a picture
crafts them into a dream
I love waiting for you
you leave a hamper at my door
it’s wicker weave squeaks with hidden treats
one by one I build my smile
yes I do smile these days
not my favourite hobby
the invisible weight I carried was all mine
it’s pockets filled with trouble
fingered to a high polish
but now I smile when your wicker hamper
arrives for me

“One More Step” slings & arrows

 

 

I couldn’t ask for a better friend
you are my balance
my vision
my search engine
my song
I see your streets ahead of me

Just one more step
to hear your voice
link hands with mine
this choice I’ve made
may crush my tear
but now I want you near

I find you live in every pocket
where silent needle has thread and linked

just one more step

your name with mine
no one will notice you say my name
but yours I have to keep in time

just one more step
to hear your voice
link hands with mine.

“Dreams Of Black On White” by Slings & Arrows

 

 

 

when life blows in my face

I know to head that way

into the wind that you embrace

searching for the end that disappears

with my thoughts of black on white

if you care to touch the ink

that flows from the fear of joy

grip it tight with all your sight

with knowledge of black on white

cut me with a knife

to see how deep you are in

the smell of wood and stubbly chin

holds your plough straight

as you look in

we build our dreams of black on white

pull out my smile you find within

and open this page to where we begin

“Your Skies” by Slings & Arrows

palm reader

When I look at you
I dip my mind into answers
that will never be questioned
you touch the edge of my happiness
that I never knew I had
you touch me in the morning
so I can watch the making of my day
you touch me at night so I can choose my dreams
I tattoo my love to the wings of a blackbird
and send it to your skies
where I hope you will look up and see me
on the wings of a blackbird

I am learning with you
learning the value of you
I am learning with you
learning the way you must be
I am learning with you
learning how to love you
I am learning with you
learning we are one

Your skies are made of gold
mine of fools
your skies tell tales of happiness
mine of sorrow
your skies show the sun the way home
mine of loss
your skies teach birds how to sing
mine of silence

You steal my sight
you steal my thoughts
you steal my breath
I love my thief

you touch me in the morning
so I can watch the making of my day
you touch me at night so I can choose my dreams
I tattoo my love to the wings of a blackbird
and send it to your skies
where I hope you will look up and see me
on the wings of a blackbird

“I will wait” by Slings & Arrows

happy hour

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with the different arrows

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with no flowers

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with secret powers

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with words that need your hours

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with four buttons on my flower

I will wait in line for you

I’m the one with thoughts of rain and shower
