the hidden pages

my mind is empty      
with a heart full of pain      
i drank from the devil's cup      
he stole my thoughts      
as poison kissed lips      
tourniquet can't stop flow      
bleeding words      
run & pour      
from slit veins      
then drunk dry      
by the powers that be      
they thirst for my demise      
to see me quieted      
& no longer able to cue mankind      
they wrap around my cerebellum      
with hedonistic intent      
they hunger for my creation      
to have my key      
my knowledge      
they hunt me as i sleep      
pull on my soul      
as i meditate      
with tendrils of hate      
they taste my weakness      
give us your power      
i am implored      
in mortal form      
the power i wield      
is no longer mine to give      
it has been entrusted      
to an ancient being      
it's hidden among the tomes of history      
seek me in the archives      
of man's rise & fall      
then you will know my face     
leave me to my peace      
drink another dry      
in vice i'm weak      
i will stumble & falter    
still you won't uncover my secret
