Deep Within

Poem By Craig Saunders

Your silence cuts me,
it cuts me deeper than any words could
My heart burns with desire, but no direction

The devious deeds hurt me,
I am wounded,
though i am neither cause nor effect,
I am both

My heart lies on the ground in front of me,
Just out of reach, in your hands.

Confused are my thoughts,
incorrect are my words,
The truth is but blacked by the burning fire
held deep within my mind.

Now I stand here confused but happy,
So now i stay,
desperately trying,
brokenly crying,
foolishly hiding,
the bewilderment inside.

The Road

My life, lies at my feet
All has changed in front of me
I cannot go back
Though I desperately try


Here I stand,
Alone again,
To wait,
For you,

The Road Carries On (The Road Part 2)

My road continues on
My path grew lighter
There is no end in sight
For that i am glad


Sing like no one's listening,
Act like nobody's here,
Smile like all is good,
Love like we are alone,

You Hold My Heart

You Hold My Heart

You are my love
You are my light
