By chance I stumble on destiny The ever morphing threads Woven by the hands of time A clock is but a rigid automaton Just an empty face with no soul Endless cogs and screws To a fluid existence Bound to eternity
By the ramblings of a madman I walk my highways and hallways And roads unmarked Lined with ghosts of all that was And whispers of things to come I hear the wind and see signs The compass of a wanderess Knows no north and south
it's like you're kissing someone else" That knife twisted in my stomach As my heart rolled to the floor. I held him weakly in my hands Aching to give myself away Wholly as before. But I left pieces of me on a dirt road In the arms of my best friend. A moment immortalized yet fleeting fast. God himself would have to strike me down If I ever found my way back to him. Because the thin veil between hell and heaven right now Is too much to bear.
If you only knew the depth of my need And the sheer pain of what cannot be. I crave the midnight air on my face And the rush of pure joy in my veins. My lips burn for the coolness of you That one kiss that took away my breath. I want more, love. Always more.
You bring me to my knees with words alone In your presence I melt into your hands Your lips taste like ambrosia and sunsets A burning love searing through my veins We're drifting around back roads searching for each other Silent screams in the night of your name My body is here but my heart is with you Aching for just one more taste
Hope is a lethal weapon With love as it's soulless brother in arms Chemical warfare clashing With dopamine and disappointment The smoke curls around my tongue Leaking out in wisps A ghost of the devil himself I breathe him in Desperate to fill this gaping hole That only grows bigger And deeper My throat is too raw to scream for help I've bombed every road home Every shelter lies in rubble Tears won't heal this monstrosity I've become I put faith in you And you let me down Over and over...
Where did you wander? You who twisted my insides With words alone Claws leaping from black marks Screaming to be heard
I felt you deep in my soul An ever shifting presence As you spiraled down Your winding pathway Never knowing from seas apart Where to or from you came
You've disappeared without a trace A year later and I still wonder Of such a fiery beautiful thing as you Your shell was tough But you are still just as beautiful As the poetry that lives on A stubborn spark in my...
Caught like a deer in headlights I'm frozen in the path of my own sins The terrors I've created shriek in the night Fight or flight, running has been my poison of choice Tonight I've run out of places to run Here I stand looking my wildest dreams in the eyes Suddenly I know nothing of my own soul I'm scattered to pieces on the road traveled behind me How you love something as incomplete as me?
I will follow you into the dark" Where are you when I'm screaming into the void Beating fists against the ground "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you" A slogan embedded in my bones Leaking into my eyes and my skin I don't even know who I hate anymore Where are you when my vicious cycle comes to a screeching halt When my demons are all that I have to my name Cold truths hovering over me like dark clouds Our childish promises and teenage angst down trodden Converse footsteps overlaid with the dirt of years gone by The dust is...
