Patience


Patience
I have none
I need some
Sitting here waiting
For something to come out
Nothing comes out
I wait for hours
And nothing comes out
Finally something does
But it doesnít make sense
So I throw it away
And hope for more
I finally get inspired
And I write a few lines
Then the moment is ruined
And it all slips my mind
Then I give up
And tear it all to pieces
Iím tired of it
I need something to do
I hate being bored
This was supposed to help me
But it didnít work
-Ben Gaisford






October Rescue


I turn around, greet my old friend
With a new 20/20 vision called hindsight
I was blind to my own trembling hands stained with blood of a murdered desire
But I have no strength to serve the guilty with their sentence
I stood under my own timid heart trying to find the pieces of a peace I couldn't hold in any memories
It's like a desert in this soul, no rain for a thousand days
Seeing but never knowing the chapter of love, Corithians 13
Fate was written in the very few clouds I no longer believed in
Tomorrow was always today with a new name I could have lived had my inspiration not been trapped beneath the rubble of my fallen shelter
My only star had burned out long ago
I was on the outside looking in at a world that seemed so sure
The sun was relentless, leaving no secret of mine hidden
As the witch of time took her pleasure in teasing me
I waited
On a late October day a voice spoke to my core
I gave into this hypnosis with nothing left to lose
A blue-eyed hero came to me
Suddently I forgot pain and all its wicked games
As he wrapped me in his strength
Rain fell upon my dead soul The rain he sent
He is my beautiful October Rescue
Suddenly I'm inside that world
Because of him I can feel
Just as he promised to me that Sunday everning with simple words, his heart attached
Together we are one soul in two bodies
A revival in my spirit
I'll always stand by my love,
My October Rescue.

Bombs drop over Iraq
Smiling graces on pilots' faces
Flying through wide open spaces
A fighter's doom he will meet soon
Guns click, the planes they hit
Hit the ground with crashing sound
Flames burn, a badge he'll earn
This decree, he won't receive
His family cries, he lies inside
He's lowered down into the ground
He lies inside without a sound
Tears will fall like US bombs
His son will grow, he will not know
-Ben Gaisford






Untitled


You've never given up that Easy
So I'll close my hands around the time I love to hate
Trying to find a way to take back all my pain
All my worry
I've never been that strong
Never been that weak
So close your eyes I'll wake you when we get there
I wonder if you can feel the death angel of my own soul hovering over you
Dead inside a frozen life
Comfort has been destroyed by a curtain of black
. . .the blackness that won't lead me back to you
Days have never felt so long.
Nights have never been so alone.
The taste of life has never been so bitter
As I wait here, losing my patience and questioning everything.
No price could be placed upon this dream
This dream of you finally coming home
Beauty makes its bed in another day far away from me
The day you are home

Rest In Pieces


Look at me, my depth perception must be off again
Cause this hurts deeper than I thought it did
It has not healed with time
It just shot down my spine _ You look so
beautiful tonight
Remind me how you laid us down
And gently smiled before you destroyed my life
Would you find it in your heart
To make this go away
And let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make this go away
And let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make it go away
And let me rest in pieces
Look at me, my depth perception must be off again
You got much closer than I thought you did
I'm in your reach
You held me in your hands
But could you find it in your heart?
To make this go away
And let me rest in pieces
Would you find it in your heart?
To make it go away
And let me rest in pieces
-Saliva
