“And they come and they go, in the blink of an eye”…

What’s the point of birthdays…

When they are dead…

When only ghosts remain…

Inside our head…

Echoes of someone…

We once knew

And we still love…

That much is true…

Remembering each day…

Without being reminded…

By an anniversary…

Fucking up the weak minded…

Opening locked boxes…

Forcing apart wounds…

That will never heal…

Forever feeling marooned…

And left asking questions…

Forever asking why…

Holding back the tears…

Because big boys don’t cry…

“I just want to be alone”…

~

Don’t talk to me…

Don’t say a word…

Don’t look at me…

I don’t belong in your world…

Don’t come too close…

Just keep away…

I want isolation…

Don’t want to play…

With the rest of you…

Just want some peace…

To be hidden away…

It’s my only release…

Lying in bed…

Hiding in the dark…

All on my own…

Solitude’s my spark…

It’s my craving…

You don’t understand…

Don’t need your company…

Or anyone’s hand…

Just me and myself…

Without any pressure…

No expectations…

I can do whatever…

Whenever I want…

And as I please…

Just leave me alone…

It’s not a disease…

I don’t need help…

Or any cure…

It’s my life choice…

Of this I am sure…

I’m not paranoid…

I just don’t like you…

I’m not schizophrenic…

Voices tell me that’s true…

But you don’t know me…

Looking in from out there…

You’ll never see my point…

Why do you even care…

So don’t talk to me…

Don’t say a word…

Don’t even look at me…

Keep the fuck out of my world…

“Just you, stood there, only in your underwear”…

Behind the locked door…
Room 2wo 8ight 4our…

The lamplight in the corner…
The gift laid out all for her…

The leather briefcase open…
The minibar seal broken…

The bed nicely made…
Music softly played…

She’s stood in the corner…
Before the one who adores her…

Wearing matching Red underwear…
Oblivious and totally unaware…

Of the feelings he hides…
The Flutterbys inside…

As he gazes upon her face…
And his fingers lightly trace…

Her body and Black hair…
Trying not to focus or to care…

About the world outside…
Pain that makes him cry…

And give himself over…
Not drunk, but not sober…

To the demons in his soul…
Who are in full control…

Whilst lost in her Green eyes…
In-between her slender thighs…

A moment he so craved…
But left him simply enslaved…

To the dark carnal desires…
The lust and the fires…

That infect his blood…
He knows he never should…

Succumb to this weakness…
For this girl’s uniqueness…

And the look she gives…
Makes him feel like she’s his…

But it’s simply not true…
She does what hookers do…

And makes them feel nice…
As they pay for their vice…

Like so many before him…
Who paid cash for their sin…

She made them feel special…
By releasing lust’s Devil…

And playing the part…
Whilst capturing his heart…

And just for a moment…
She provides atonement…

Before leaving the room…
Into her next costume…

As he counts the cost…
The money he has lost…

And a sad lament…
At her lingering scent…

Driving him insane…
Until he sees her again…

Behind a locked door…
It’s what he lives for…

“When the night has come and the land is dark”…

In the dead of the night…
No sign of any moon light…
Within a dream he awoke…
A different language he spoke…

To the beast with Red eyes…
Who’d peeled off his disguise…
And stood menacingly before him…
He couldn’t move, couldn’t win…

Paralysed and frozen…
This time he’d been chosen…
And was put on the spot…
Whilst all around became hot…

With flames reaching higher…
Was this to be his funeral pyre…
Was this the judgement day…
What final words should he say…

He’d got no prepared defence…
And knew nothing would make sense…
How could he begin to justify…
As the fallen angels wandered by…

Bound and chained, one by one…
Hiding their eyes from the sun…
Tears of blood on their face…
Guilty versions of the Human race…

What words could he find…
To excuse him for being unkind…
To pardon him from his crimes…
Dodge the Devil one more time…

And depart with his soul intact…
Ignoring all the damning facts…
That are laid out before him…
Full of lies and full of sin…

Anybody would find him guilty…
And with not a shred of any pity…
Condemn his broken soul…
Into Satan’s deep black hole…

Where he would never find…
Peace within his tortured mind…
Or any hope of redemption…
Much too late for an intervention…

Perhaps this was his final chance…
To understand the circumstance…
That had brought him here…
Full of remorse and full of fear…

But he failed to find the words…
And his reality got blurred…
There was nothing he could do or say…
Except close his eyes and fucking pray…

And as the verdict was delivered…
His twisted mind just shivered…
Because he would never again awake…
Condemned to Hell for his mistakes…

And in the dead of the night…
With no sign of any moon light…
He let out a blood curdling scream…
Never again to escape from this dream…

“Of everything that stands, the end”…

Some things are…
Beyond our control…
Scars are formed where…
Once was a bloody hole…
And pain is injected…
Deep within our souls…

Leaving us numb…
Wishing life had never begun…
And the Devil had won…

Taking over our actions…
Controlling our reactions…

To what gets said…
As words embed…
And roll around in our head…

Forcing us to lash out…
Some days we scream and we shout…
Anger filled, yet laced with doubt…

What have we become…
Where is our youthful Sun…

That we gazed upon…
Whilst singing songs…

When innocent and young…
When life was fun…

Playing in the park…
Hide and seek in the dark…
Embracing life’s spark…

Not knowing other ways…
Ignorant to darker days…

It seems so long ago…
From there to here, we know…

So much more…
We opened the door…

And it will never close…
This path we chose…
Our souls we expose…
On knees and elbows…

Waiting…
Hesitating…
Because this was all of our making…

Biting the apple…
Burning down the chapel…

Turning our backs…
Allowing the attacks…
As we fell through the cracks…

Out of all control…
With no chance of parole…
For our tainted soul…

Sucked into the abyss…
Where nobody will miss…

The beat of our heart…
As we slowly depart…
To navigate the star chart…

Seeking out lost friends…
One last appointment to attend…
At our journeys end…
