“Have you come here for forgiveness”…

~

Basking in the shadows…
Where the sunset meets the sea…

Watching fallen angels dancing…
That’s where you’ll find me…

My story was totally fictitious…
Laced with fragments of truth…

And you read all about me…
But forgot me in your youth…

When the wind whispered my name…
You turned and chose not to hear…

Instead you closed the door on me…
Let false words fill your ears…

When the lightning showed the way…
You followed the wrong path…

Didn’t care about consequence…
Or give thought to the aftermath…

Now I’m the freedom you long for…
Whilst you’re locked deep inside…

Knowing you can never escape…
No matter how hard you tried…

You thought I was a madman…
And didn’t believe a single word…

Seeking proof that can’t be found…
In this cold and desolate world…

I’m insane and quite irrational…
That riddle you could not solve…

An answer that was so profound…
It tested your faith and resolve…

Yet I’m mystical and magical…
Like the girl with stunning eyes…

Nothing on this Earth compares…
And that thought just terrifies…

I’m that hidden personality…
That feeds off your darker side…

I know everything about you…
There is nothing you can hide…

I’m the hate inside your fury…
But the only love that’s true…

When you’re feeling so deceptive…
I’m your secret rendezvous…

I’m the story with no ending…
The thief that stole from time…

I know all your dirty secrets…
Witnessed all your wicked crimes…

I’m the cold breeze in the summer…
The rose growing in the snow…

I defied conventional wisdom…
Was the only truth you know…

Now it’s much too late for you…
The chance has passed and gone…

You are looking for forgiveness…
Where there is absolutely none…

Now I’m hiding in the shadows…
The Master of all you can see…

One day this world will end…
And you will finally believe…

“You don’t fuck with Harry’s money, you don’t fuck Harry’s girls”…

You don’t know Harry…

Anything like I do…

Or what he’s capable of…

When hidden out of view…

The things he does…

His actions and deeds…

Things that he thinks…

The fear that feeds…

And drive him on…

With a need for control…

Which keeps him sane…

Motivating his soul…

For sinful distraction…

Of each and every kind…

He has no boundaries…

And no ties that bind…

He’s free to do anything…

Anytime that he wants…

Devoid of any conscience…

Or a little voice that haunts…

He is the ruler of his universe…

The commander of his ship…

If you dare to cross Harry…

He’ll swiftly lash the whip…

And leave you badly wounded…

But thankful you’re not dead…

As Harry could easily kill you…

Or have “THEM” crush your head…

Without batting an eyelid…

And without a moment’s thought…

It’s the way that Harry rolls…

It’s the way that he was taught…

So be under no illusion…

Be smart and work it out…

Harry is a fucking monster…

Of that there is no doubt…

Because you don’t know Harry…

Anything like I do…

Or what he’s capable of…

When Harry’s in the mood…

Reservation.

If I give you the
Love I would
want you to
Have,

Would you,
for me,
Do the same?

Across distances, let
Our love communicate,
Expressing all secrets
Of our hearts.

Like rivers of
water, my love
Flows for you.

Like warm rays of
Sunlight, my love
Shines for you.

Like lilies, reaching
For the day, my love
Grows for you.

Brighter than any
Star at night, my love
Glows for you.

Soon, this love
I will share with you,

Held close, with
Care, on reserve
For you.

“I don’t know much about praying, but I feel the need for a prayer”…

What on earth was happening…

His head revolved so fast…

At the mention of her name…

Or whenever she walked past…

The smell of her perfume…

Those eyes that just bewitched…

Took him to another place…

At the quick flick of a switch…

To a place outside reality…

Where nothing else exists…

Just a sense of longing…

For her arms and for her kiss…

And to hear her whisper softly…

Tell him everything’s alright…

As he battled all the demons…

That kept him awake at night…

Accepting all his faults…

That he was not perfect…

And he would make mistakes…

But it would all be worth it…

When the good times came…

At the end of the night…

And in her arms he’d lay…

Till the cold morning light…

Because he needed her so much…

More than he could ever say…

He wanted her so badly…

It had always been that way…

From the very first moment…

That she came into view…

She became his fantasy…

And destroyed all he held true…

All his long standing virtues…

The man he thought he was…

Fell quickly by the wayside…

And simply all because…

Of those eyes that glinted…

And the way she walked…

Plus a great intelligence…

Projected when she talked…

But she was a Devil…

How was he to know…

Hidden deep in disguise…

As she put on a show…

Hiding all her feelings…

Telling secret lies…

From behind her mask…

She had her reasons why…

But she kept them close…

And refused to reveal…

Hid behind her mirrors…

Distorted what was real…

Now she’s no longer listening…

To a single word that’s said…

She’s got him out of her mind…

Removed him from her head…

Extracted him from within…

Ejected him from her heart…

From where he didn’t belong…

Right from the very start…

Now he doesn’t know what’s hit him…

Things have moved so fast…

As he never saw it coming…

And feels like such an outcast…

“Confusion never stops, closing walls and ticking clocks”…

Time doesn’t heal,
it just helps us forget…

As our memories fade,
blurring our regrets…

Nature’s own sedative,
seeps into our veins…

On mission to destroy and
slowly send us insane…

Then leaves us looking,
at old eyes in a mirror…

The stranger staring back,
who can’t quite remember…

Who on earth are we,
what have we done…

The hearts we’ve broken,
in the midst of distractive fun…

Or the ones we loved,
who were then taken away…

Under the illusion given,
we’ll meet again someday…

As we progress on our journey,
from young through to old…

Always trying to understand,
seldom doing as we’re told…

Making so many mistakes,
hoping no one’s keeping score…

Learning the harsh lessons,
Whilst making more and more…

Counting all our evil sins,
carrying all of our scars…

As we stumble through life,
following a path to the stars…

Hoping time will heal us,
yet never becoming wise…

Still believing the fairy stories,
still falling for all the lies…

Until one day it’s over and
we come face to face with death…

And time just keeps on ticking,
long after we take our final breath…
