Off The Tracks

Here we are Stranded on the train Running off the tracks But You promised me That this was the way To go So here we go Running off the tracks   Here I am, gasping  For air  Raindrops falling  From my cheeks When I realized How you really  Thought of me It hit me like...


In search For more… Longing For more… For what? I don’t know   All I know Is that There is a  Growing, Gaping, Darkening Hole Inside me   And it Longs And it Searches  To be Filled up But how? I don’t know  Thank you for reading,   Lianna Bond


I look around intensely Focused on the droplets, Minuscule, really, Of the crimson trails following Behind each poor soul That I encounter   I look back, bewildered At the massive wave, Colossal, really,  Of my own crimson tide  That was about To overtake me   There’s...

Be Still

Sounds, Mind, Distractions, Noise, Busyness, Hustle, Excuses Never any time Now I am drowning, I need to get out of my own way   So I can be still… But,  Why do I want to be still again? I seemed to have forgotten The truth   Anyways,  How do I be still In this world,...

Before the Miracle

Prayer, I have realized, Is not a wish-list, To air out my requests, For miracles I long for To come true   This is what prayer is: It is to seek You When You are near It is being committed  To listen and obey  Even when it’s not  What I want   Worship, I have...

Hold Me

Hold me close to You Hold me in my time of need I need You Embrace me I have nobody else but You Hold me close to You   I can’t look back in the past I can’t believe what I’ve done I did not know who I was I had been robbed  Of my sweet innocence I did not know who I...
