Walls of Smeared Oudem

I couldnít brew a soft spot
even when the water touches the bag in the coffee pot
Never wet or soggy to loves regrets
I have no feelings
Frigid cold
weather proof
Fool proof
No fears
Spook proof
  But when the 31st comes
Around
I go and hide
From the Candyman
Flames in my eyes
Coming from the furnice in my heart
This sex is blood art
He wants my treats and will do anything to trick me
So I can lay up in the sheets
Backseat
Bench seat
Concrete
Heís a beast within a beast
Heíll even take it on my monthly
Under the twilight
Heíll suck the sin from my neck
I canít help but to scream
Candyman
Thatís twice
I hate this time of year
I tried to call for my soul to be saved
But no phone was near
A puddle full of lies Iím standing in
Sanguine brown tinged blood
Smeared across the path of escape
It was obscured by his shadow
There he was behind me
Stop!
I was tormented by red sin
Every Halloween I would let him in
Falling for his tricks in the light
He was charming
In the darkness he was the devil
I was his darling
My tongue spewed out his name Candyman
The fight couldnít be settled between
My mind and body
I hated Halloween my flesh was a commodity for him
After that night for 30 days I wasnít spook proof
I would contemplate emptying my mind off of the roof
For the next 331 days I would pretend my heart was a bulletproof vest and my mind iíd keep in a kennel for sanity
  † Because
Every time I sat down at my vanity
I would see the reflection of hell in my eyes
My mouth whispering
Ears,
Itís just a matter of time
Before you become a sacrifice again
Covered in Oudem

I think you just delete the original one or edit it to something else here or just wipe it out blank.

I

it is unnatural for me
to walk in the flesh
while feeling anything resembling affinity
with mankind collectively

My depravity
has molded me fiend
or perhaps I.... became
conversely

whatever the order of distasteful events
I Am
and that Sir, you should find terrifying

For a monster prowls your kind reality
with itchy tooth flexed for bite
feel heat and spittle pool the heels of your deficiency

As I dwell there...in your weakness
forever hungry
pacing the terror dome of mans heart

Blood Test

Imagine, that youíre waiting with a friend,
The room is warm with chairs and magazines.
You hear some footsteps then a sort of scream,
A name is called, you answer, itís not yours.
You stand, and walk a red line round a bend.

And suddenly youíre running down a hall,
Youíve passed the passage that you want to take
But cannot stop; Thereís something in your wake
That makes you turn, you turn and nothingís there,
Youíre running and thereís nothing there at all.

You turn again, this time you turn knowing,
It is still there behind you: as your chin
Turns back across your shoulder; as within
Your face starts to feel the fear it's showing.
You must go, but donít know where youíre going.

And still you run, but now you want to hide,
Youíre fast but never far enough away.
You want to stop, you want to stop and say
ďWhy me?Ē Then slow enough to understand
Youíre really being followed from inside,

And cannot turn the hand or eye within
To pick the vicious molecules apart,
Or separate your tortured heart from heart.
And still you run, and still your heart is raw.
You know because youíre running through your skin.

You know because youíre running down a vein.
You see the desperate massacre of blood,
You feel the brutal slaughter of the god
That fights vast battles for you every day.
You try to speak, you speak but youíre insane.

You try to think and then you try to scream.
Youíre lying in a coffin wrapped in wire,
The music ends and now you hear the fire.
It burns in chords which echo through the steam.
Youíre suddenly awake. Itís not a dream,

Because once more youíre waiting with a friend
In such a room with chairs and magazines,
You hear some footsteps then you hear a scream,
A name is called you answer, itís not yours.
With time, youíll know exactly how it ends.

Time will tell exactly how it ends.
