All your sins bleed through to the other side,
I read you and your stubborn face and cry,
Was my pain worth the lies?

It's the fear of "never" and not knowing what the heart wants,
The storm that brings you into the arms of forgiveness,
Worry in your blood it all comes from a dark place,

Told a stranger you were drowning when you knew I could swim,
How could you ever think that I wouldn't understand?
For some, forever could only mean a day,

Your body, your mind are one with my wants and needs and just out of my reach,
Even as I've made space for you and all that you are,
Worry is a wall and I can't get over it,

It's just too sweet and almost crippling are the reminders of failure to reciprocate,
I just want to be selfish today, to light a fire in your name,
Too valuable to keep,

Always there and you will come looking for me again,
Praying to God to find a way to keep you here,
As you've become a beacon on the night sea.

~Southern Cleanse & Clean~

Southern cleanse and clean,
Lays a destructive path like a hurricane,
He always knows better than to stay too long,

Prayers are comfort for the lonely,
Living in fear even as walking unknown,
Your backs to the wall keeping an eye on the room,

You hear a holler from downstairs,
Then a sweet voice to cut the bitterness,
Distant memories start feeling real again suddenly,

Waiting to greet him at the front door,
A fool for standing your ground to a tornado,
Facing dark clouds where all he ever knew was the sun,

"For good" is the only way he measures time, but
Where is home when you lose your way and you can't read a map?
He grew a heart over night and your finger has been on the pulse all day,

There is a face you don't see often enough,
He gives you back an inch for the mile he took,
Take with you all you manage to grasp and do not let go.

In the future I may write a story with this title in the same universe as this poem. If you have any thoughts, I implore you to share them and please also leave a :+fav: if you enjoyed, but no pressure. 
~Back To The Future~

Where we were, we'll be there again,
the winds of the change are bringing a storm,
the sands of time are always slipping through our fingers,

We hold on like we're afraid to lose it, when we were ahead, we went back,
when we went back, we wanted to go home,
freedom is what lies outside of space and time,

Beyond the dimensions we can see and feel,
if the present made you lonely, and the past made you afraid,
take the best of both of them with you to whenever you will be,

It will be worth it, to steal time,
to cheat death out of a few coins and rattle them as you walk away,
immortality becoming reality is not as painful as we thought it would be,

The future keeps coming along,
happiness in the palms of our hands,
and what you were looking for, time will let it catch up to you,

I used to be so angry at all the time that I wasted,
I brought the past with me to the present,
with the future in front of me, I'm always time traveling.

~Annie Jump Cannon~

Eternity begins when the Earth ends,
There is no heaven beyond the infinite sky,
In space, mortality can reach even the untouchable,
As time slows down the further you venture,

Betrayed by the night as it takes the sun,
Just when you think you are safe, an eclipse takes the moon,
Darkness does not care what lies within it,
Swear by the promise of tommorrow and the absence of the mind,

Backs turned to the apprehension and fear of the unknown,
Undertaking a daring journey through anguished misery and loneliness,
To those hidden self-seeking universes not so different from our own,
Man's exploitation of nature will be short-lived,

Get as far as the light atop the highest peak,
The fires will carry the news,
Fate's threads held to the flames,
Head for the center of the storm and take pleasure in the calm,

Teary-eyed and low spirits, overwhelming distress,
Imaginary spiritual worlds misused for dastardly deeds,
They feed on your fear,
As you emerge from the darkness and regard each other,

Feast upon the beauty of another human being,
Unable to rely on what exists of the intangible,
As far as the eye can see is all that is truly divine,
Daughter of the stars is mother nature.

:+fav: and leave a constructive comment if you enjoyed this poem, it was a labor of love based on Darkness by Lord Byron and paying tribute to Annie Jump Cannon the way I've been trying to do for quite some time. And here it is! Please let me know what you all think, and thanks for reading.
~Unruly Angels~

Love gives more than what old age takes away,
When you're born with skin too thick to crack,
Those are just generation gaps,

Gay as the first flower of spring,
Even after years of being away,
Looking for a reason to go back or stay here,

With a face that gets whatever it wants,
Youth outweighs wealth,
Can't sleep for fear of missing something,

Sinful heartthrobs who want to take over where the world is wilting,
Unruly angels wanting to move on to a tangible faith they can hold on to,
Each other,

Looking good but you're not dying,
We could all get away sometime,
Get far gone in our own minds,

Dying and leaving a revolution behind,
Where you scattered all your dreams,
All the young kids will go off and try to find them.

Inspired by Five to One by The Doors. Leave a comment, :+fav:, or a watch if you liked it. It all makes a difference. Thank you for reading.
All the people I feared in the beginning, turned out to be good, 
and all the people I thought I could trust, turned out to hurt me the most.
Everyone I have on that old friends list is a friend but most of the time when I'm down, they're not there.
I have a few people right here that I'm grateful for because everyone needs someone,
even the people who won't admit it.
