“But half of me, deserves everything he gets”…

He’s found a way to live…
Devoid of all emotion…
A simple trick of the mind…
Sets the wheels in motion…
And locks it all away…
Preventing any tears…
That would flood his eyes…
If he remembered all the years…
 
The good times and the bad…
All his stupid mistakes…
On the road that he has travelled…
The decisions that he makes…
In the search of distraction…
Whilst hidden in plain sight…
But distorting his reality…
Under the cover of night…
 
Where he becomes another…
Assumes that personality…
The one that he keeps hidden…
So no one else can see…
Like Jekyll and Hyde…
At the flick of a switch…
A quick transformation…
Like a spell cast by a witch…

Turning to the dark side…
Tuning into evil thoughts…
Listening to the demons…
Forgetting all he was taught…
And living in the shadows…
Searching for like minds…
Who may understand him…
And not judge whatever they find…

But then he forgets it all…
In the light of the morning sun…
Pretends it never happened…
And moves on, starts to run…
Like a scared little child…
A boy just like Peter Pan…
Who never really grew up…
Or understood life’s plan…

Like he’s trapped in a prison…
His own private cell…
He can never escape it…
Some days it feels like Hell…
So he’s found a way to live…
Devoid of all emotion…
It’s how he now exists…
And the path that he has chosen…

“I close my eyes and a woman calls”…

Time is now ticking…
Hours slowly slipping…

Through his fingers…
As her scent lingers…

In the cold night air…
She was stood over there…
He honestly swears…

Those Devil eyes gleaming…
Her kiss left him screaming…

For more…
And an extended encore…

But quick as appearing…
She was disappearing…

In front of his eyes…
Requiring no disguise…
As it came as no surprise…

Because she’s done this before…
Thirty Six times or more…
Always leaving his heart on the floor…

And his mind a confused mess…
Even though it’s hard to confess…

That she’s in his head…
Always laid on his bed…
“You’re nothing special”, she said…

Words leaving him broken hearted…
As she walked off and departed…

Leaving his heart quickly beating…
At the thought of her cheating…

Elsewhere…
But why should he care…

Or even think about her…
In the heat of the summer…
Thinking they should be together…

And not apart…
It rips a hole in his heart…

Leaving him looking for a reason…
To be with her again soon…

And in her arms…
Safe from all harm…
Lost in her unearthly charms…

Because despite everything…
He’d still do anything…
And will continue carrying…

A torch…
With a flame so hot,
it would scorch…

His own soul…
The same one that she stole…

Stood outside the hotel…
Locking his heart in a cell…
Condemning him to Hell…

Until they next commit the crime…
And the clocks now ticking,
towards that time…
