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
