Do you see me?Look into my eyesWhere the stars are aligned,The planets collide--Destroying the veilBetween meAnd the beast insideThe demons come out to playTo mess with my mind;Throwing their wordsLike knivesCutting the flesh,Making me bleed(Why do I fight?)The ink,It drips from my veinsMy own poison Suffocating the air I breathThere's nowhere to hideIt's coming for meThis mirror has long been cracked,My reflection's hereStabbing me in the back.It's too late nowThe beast and I Need to settle the scoreOnce and for all...
Misguided MischiefIn the forestLeft to wander,Amongst the licorice trees And candy witches,There's no bread crumbs to followNor any ovens to hide in,I'm here all aloneThe rabbit hole long forgotten;My savior's running late, And the tea's all gone.I've no head to lose(But no heart to find either)Tricked once againBy the piper's sweet music,I'm drowningIn it's merry ecstasyMarching with my fellow fiendsStraight into catastrophe These fairytale fantasiesHave given me life,This straight jacket's too tight-I see a sign as I fly by"You're now leaving Reality"Hm, I really need to visit there sometime

Eternal SlumberThe night comes callingNocturnal demons beckonHowling, thrashingIridescent lightsRed and greenKeep the mind on edgeThe brain unsettledCowers in its cornerA plea for peace It's last dying wishA feverish attempt at flightEverything fades to staticElectricity surges the veinsThe body burns brightly A twisted piece of wreckage Slowly unfolding,Melting into a cold riverOf uncharted waters As the thoughts turn inwardTo bleak tragedies Insanity creeps outward Into frightening familiarity;The clock strikes 12It's better late than never"Hush your tired eyes,My poor forsaken child;I'll sleep with you tonight."Encased in arms of satinThe ghost of lost security Comforts the crying soulA shepardess of stars,Warm and invitingCalms the angriest of storms,Granting safe passageTo the wanderers of The waking world "It's time for our journey,Straight to sweet Oblivion.Just take my hand and Kiss the ground goodbye;A land of eternal slumberAwaits your sleeping eyes.

Existence?What is this existence of mine?A day to day tragedyMisery and monotony In a flavorless blendLife flies by in painful colorsThe clock moving too fast for comfortQuestions spring from my fingertipsOnly to fall on blind earsNothing breaks, nothing givesBut the confidence Of a washed up mistakeLeft to decompose it this light"Look to the future..."Seems to be the subject of the day,But life's little pleasuresSimply don't work that wayMisfortune strikes in multiplesLike a set of dominos in syncToppling over a tower of promiseThe remains too crumpled to speakAgain and again, it never failsHistory is stuck on REPEATA cyclical twist of lines and dashes Help no closer than before What is this existence of mine?A color coded book of greyA puzzle piece that doesn't fit Nothing but the ugly truth
