On The Precipice (Collab with Nightspirit)

whimsical and unrelenting
are the voices in my head
speaking volumes of dreary idioms
demanding courtesy and respect

be it here or there or everywhere
but nowhere shall I be
to be forever confined in darkness
without a light to see

encased in arrant dismay  
to the misty-fogs delight      
my soul awoke today
with skin so cold and white

awaiting for an open door
as I walk from bed to ledge
dismissing the mysticism and lore
soon ill dance with nimble Death

to love ones of this world
i dare not say goodbye
knowing that if do
I will surely and sorely cry
 I just and must leave them be
as my will to die slowly creeps
for I long to say hello to the underworld
 and sleep in lifeless peace

be it here or there or anywhere
 but nowhere shall I be
so my spirit shall again be free
I end my lonesome world with true vivacity
my only life I leave behind
so lost without a clue
 for in death without a breath
from the world I only knew

so upon the edge
all alone in the dark night sky
awaiting here racked in fear
as I leap to my demise
 the misty-fog has cleared
shedding flesh of misery
  my demons forever released
on the precipice of yesteryear memories
