-Mr. Chris

And Down Went the Sun
Leave me your dreams, wrapped in a bow of violin strings that you keep silently stowed.
Let me believe the song is in tow, as the chamber plays tears and weeps as the piece is silently stowed.
And listening to children sing only controls the deepening role that the void has silently stowed.
The silence you hear is not that of God, but the pain of your soul listening to know if the silence will go or if the sun will shine music of gold. And down went the sun.

Lovers to Foes
Foes into fools,
Fooled into love.

Fall, winter, spring,
Spring into love,
Summer we fall. And the light is still keeping on. Hoping time will mend all the wrong...we belong...

Lovers as foes,
Frozen by love,
Melted in time.

The secondhand gives,
Time we had said...
Said our goodbyes. And the darkness is tending the flame. Though we say neither one is to blame...we remain.

Lovers and Foes,
Fools till the end,
Falling for love.

And in the end...
End of the day,
In love may we fall...fall into friends.
