Skeletons, Demons and Ghosts

Recommended Posts

Just words at this point. No chorus or direction for chorus. I usually write hearing a melody but this time it hasn't come yet. Maybe its just a poem? Anyway-

 

My skeletons cant be justified

No dignity nor shame

If they had the chance to speak

They'd whisper just the same

 

Courage twisted up real tight

Pushed down deep inside

Lives beside two mortal sins

Jealousy and pride

 

I stand here just spinning

Staring up at the sky

Time keeps unwinding

I'm asking reasons why

There is no reason why

There is no reason why

 

 

My demons can't be pacified

With wickedness or tears

I try to run and hide away

They always smell the fear

 

Staring down the rabbit hole

Trying not to leap

Every time I close my eyes

Pray my soul to keep

 

I stand here just spinning

Staring up at the sky

Time keeps unwinding

I'm asking reasons why

There is no reason why

There is no reason why

 

 

 

The ghosts have now all vaporized

Lost to wind and time

All the rest were passers by

Faces undefined

 

Reflections of old memories

Stories of old wars

Scars that pass as better times

Truths that beg for more

 

I stand here just spinning

Staring up at the sky

Time keeps unwinding

I'm asking reasons why

There is no reason why

There is no reason why

So I have been sitting on this for awhile. Still no real melody yet. But yesterday a chorus that I really like came

from that magical place I can't explain. So here is what came up-

 

I stand here just spinning

Staring up at the sky

Time keeps unwinding

I'm asking reasons why

There is no reason why

There is no reason why
