"The Shadow That Looms O’er My Heart"

What is it lately?
I can’t get out of bed
Can’t stop saying
That everything good is dead
Where did you go
My blue-green arrow
My sweet singing sparrow
with your anti-lullaby
with your claws scraping off the shadow
the shadow that looms o’er my heart

Dear darkroom
I needed you in middle school
to build up the endless tetrises
to caress so many idle breasts
to get lost in your thoughts with my hands on your head, with your feet at my head, with your knees on my chest

and now I can’t see past it
an everlasting malaise
a darkness
unless I can flip
the lightswitch

let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let the light flood in
let it shine all in
let the bright sun in
let it blind me and
let the fight begin

Hey Everyone,

It’s looking likely that this short film I scored will win the YouTube audience award at Sundance this year. If you have any time today to watch at least part of it, please do (every view gets us a little closer to the honor and the glory). Ten minutes long, the sweetest kids acting in it, tons of friends involved in making it…

"Keep It Inside"

thought i’d be going on by now
with a love for you that’s true somehow
and you’d be screaming at me, screaming at me:
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop

now where did all those good looks go?
my effervescent charm and glow?
the poetry escapes me
and i can see you turning
i can see you turning

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside

your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside
cry, cry, no reason why
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
every lie, every last sigh
everything that’s denied, gotta keep it inside…

thought i’d be further along
doing something that i knew was wrong
and you’d be blowing on my neck
and i’d be running out of breath
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
don’t stop
and where did all those good times go?
the valley of tomorrow
I’ll keep waiting for you
i’ll keep waiting for you

in every little heaven
every last woman
every depression  
every last rejection
the good luck i’m missing
everything that i’m missing
(such a beautiful woman)
afraid of what i’m thinking
everything i’m dreaming
all of our children
all of our chil-

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside

your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside

all those feelings that you hide, that burn you alive
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
your throat goes dry and you’re buried alive
in your dreams when you die, gotta keep it inside
cry, cry, no reason why
ever since you were a child, gotta keep it inside
every lie, every last sigh
everything that’s denied, gotta keep it inside
