Call Of The Wild

Poem By Timothy Lee Hollandsworth Jr.

'm not really sure where I'm going,
but I know where I've been.
I know I've been there before,
but I can't remember when.
It's the same old story,
just a different day.
The children hide,
as the animals come out to play.
The moon shines bright,
but only to reveal
that everything
the shadows conceal.
You all hide in your closet
with shivers.
I feel the excitement,
it makes me quiver.
Feel way deep down,
in the pit of your stomach, you know.
Don't turn around.
It's not your time to go.
Don't fear,
The call of the wild.
Ride out the storm.
Oh, fear not child.
Nothing has been torn.
Sometimes we must answer
The call of the wild.

I Loved You

I want to write the most beautiful words for you
There just don't seem enough to say what I feel
I want you to know just what is in my head
Before you lay tonight with someone else in your bed

Hope And Love

Chills run down my spine
When you call me yours.
Do they, when I call you mine?
Together, we can open any doors.

I'M So Far Away

Here I am where the ash climbs high
Where crimson and stormy is the sky
I hear my steps echo behind myself
I look in the water, I'm blind to myself

Don'T Wake The Children

Alone in his room a young boy weeps.
For outside his solitude rages a war.
Inside his heart a mighty beast continues his sleep.
Alas, what is a mere boy to do he himself can sleep no more.

Kill Her Cocaine

Yesterday her whole world changed.
Every thing's confused and rearranged.
She went and gave in to the pain.
It's gonna kill her cocaine.

Wasted Time

The clock keeps ticking,
The sound echoes in my ears.
The days keep coming,
But they can't drown out the years.
