“Complicated Avenue”

Staring at the path before me, undecided on which road to take,
I’m staring down your affinity, but somehow you say that I’m late.
I live on “INTRIGUING DRIVE”, the land of the free and outspoken,
for I once lived in the slums, of the beautifully jaded, heart broken…

I moved out.

I walked the interstate of love barefoot, cold, and alone.
My body survived the tornado, yet my mind was still blown..

I made a deal with the devil, to be aware of temptation,
he asks for my eyes in return, psychic demonstrations..
As I made my way to your road, the place in which you live,
not your body, but your mind, elusively lucid.

My eyes aware of all, without any ignorant bliss,
I saw your intention waterfall your mind, with your forehead kiss.

You want love, you want freedom, and you want to live on my street,
I crave you, and your affinity, and the depth in which you speak.

I walked the desert, with my heart dragging behind me,
I crawled dehydrated subconsciously hoping this would find me.

Of all the roads, I’ve ventured, and all the roads I’ve been,
Living a thousand lives, angels, and those of sin.

“Broken Hearted Road” to “Intriguing Drive”….
I’m walking towards your ocean, hoping you chose to dive,
in my water, and live your life out loud,
I’m receptive to teach you, don’t mind showing you how.

So follow me now, You don’t have to live on “Complicated Ave”,
you don’t have to be a permanent resident,
to what you can have…

Of all the roads I’ve ventured, and all the roads I’ve been,
Lived a thousands lives, danced with angels,
and I’ve dined with sin.

You want love, you want freedom, and you want to live on my street,
I crave you, and your affinity, and the depth in which you speak.
