Hubble bubble,
toil and trouble…

They hauled her from,
a pile of rubble…

Her broken body,
no longer breathing…

Covered in dust and
wounds still bleeding…

For the longest time,
she’d been missing…

Disappeared suddenly,
after reminiscing…

About a man she met,
at a party long ago…

An opportunity missed,
at least she thought so…

She knew his name and
where he came from…

He’d charmed and entranced,
forced her heart to succumb…

And branded his face,
in the forefront of her mind…

Before one day deciding,
that she’d try to find…

The one who wove a spell,
upon her imagination…

And accepting the risk,
of total deflation…

But when she saw him,
she instantly knew…

That she had been,
such an utter fool…

As he walked hand in hand,
with a stunning goddess…

And in her minds comparison,
she was such a mess…

So she fled the city,
in a lonely taxi tide…

With her heart aching,
she sat in the back and cried…

But as the bright city lights,
began to fade into darkness…

The driver stopped and
ignored all her tearful protests…

Hubble bubble,
toil and trouble…

They hauled her slaughtered body,
from a pile of rubble…

On My Own…

gqejg

~

There was no rhyme…
There was no reason…

The words you uttered…
Were simply treason…

Fired from your lips…
Embedding in my back…

From out of the blue…
Like some stealth attack…

That left me reeling…
Spinning out of control…

Slashing at my arteries…
And scaring my soul…

Pushing my fragile mind…
Into depths of despair…

Plunging me into darkness…
Yet you simply didn’t care….

As the world where you live…
Has quickly moved on…

With a brand new lover…
Who worships your sun…

Never looking behind you…
Only focused straight ahead…

And for all that you care…
I could be lifeless and dead…

But I stand in the wreckage…
Of loves broken dream…

With a heart so damaged…
And ripped at the seams…

Looking for something…
To break my free fall…

Clinging on to the hope…
That this isn’t it all…

And someday, sometime…
When the pain has distilled …

I can use this experience…
To try and slowly rebuild…

But until that moment…
The world is shrouded in black…

Where my mind is still shaking…
From your vicious attack…

Dancing…

As the beat immerses her soul…
She glides onto the dance floor…

It’s such a perfect disguise…
Like a drug, she craves more…

No one out there knows her…
She’s got total anonymity…

As the music infects her mind…
It’s the only place that she’s free…

It’s her space and her distraction…
When life gets too much to take…

And she needs to forget about them…
All the pain and all the heartache…

The trouble that they caused her…
And all that went before…

The way they gave her bruises…
Some mental and so much more…

They’ve left so many scars…
And such bitter memories…

She can’t escape the nightmares…
But whilst dancing, no one sees…

They only feast upon a sexual vision…
This goddess moving in the dark…

As her stunning body twists and turns…
They’re simply entranced by her spark…

But she chooses not see them…
Lost in a perfect moment of joy…

This is her total and utter escape…
A place no one on Earth can destroy…

It’s a place of pure isolation…
Like a desert island in the sea…

She will just keep on dancing…
Till sunrise brings stark reality…

It gives her space to focus…
Time to plot some form of revenge…

She swears one day they’ll suffer…
Her heart’s destruction she’ll avenge…

As the beat infects her soul…
She plots murder on the dance floor…

One day this picture of elegance…
Will become a Siren, calling ships to shore…

The Wall…

hsj

~

The wall that you built…
Can no longer protect you…

And hiding behind it…
Won’t add any value…

As the voices you hate…
The ones that you fear…

They have found you…
And now stab like spears…

Deep inside your mind…
Seeping into your soul…

Injecting their poison…
Filling that black hole…

The void you created…
In an attempt to outrun…

You thought it‘d ended…
But it’s only just begun…

As they sat and waited…
Quietly biding their time…

Until you were happy…
Starting to finally feel fine…

And the world that you live in…
Is just how you wanted it…

All those jigsaw pieces …
Finally did seem to fit…

This was the moment…
They chose to attack…

Knowing you’re vulnerable…
Dragging you back into black…

They began as a whisper…
Reigniting your paranoia…

Invading your waking hours…
Haunting like a dark destroyer…

Pulling out all the guilt…
Hid deep inside your dreams…

That you locked up in boxes…
Blocking out the screams…

Of those you have hurt…
The times that you lied…

Those late night distractions…
And secrets you tried to hide…

Sweet Dreams…

him

~

Erase his memory…
And wipe it clean…

Remove the faces…
That he has seen…

The ones he’s hurt…
And uttered his lies…

That stain his soul…
Making him despise…

Every bad thought…
Every wrong deed…

That was sown…
By the Devil’s seed…

And infected his head…
With Sinner’s thoughts…

Diverting him away…
From all he was taught…

About right and wrong…
The good and the bad…

Now he looks back…
And he feels so sad…

As the fun distraction…
That made him smile…

Will be held against him…
At the final trial…

Of his dirty soul…
As he meets his maker…

And stands in judgement…
Accused of being a faker…

Before being condemned…
To an afterlife in Hell…

Chained to his Master…
For being an infidel…

Because for every action…
He knew the high price…

Yet was still addicted…
To thrills in the night…

Now haunting his memory…
Making him silently scream…

As it comes flooding back…
When she whispers “Sweet dreams”

City of the Dead…

rainw

~

Walking through the rain…
In the city of the dead…

A thousand years of history…
A million tears shed…

Dreams that have crumbled…
Trampled under the feet…

Of a weary population…
Who no longer see it…

Passing by the tombstones…
And the inscribed names…

Never stopping to wonder…
Focused only on their shame…

The burden they each carry…
Inside their sinful hearts…

Struggling through the day…
As monotony once again starts…

Like automated robots…
With a program to follow…

Missing the point of life…
Hearts wooden and hollow…

In a world that’s become…
About the here and now…

Obsessed with consumerism…
And the latest cash cow…

It wasn’t always like this…
It used to mean much more…

A world filled with pride…
That only exists in folklore…

Now stories are passed down…
Laced with mild frustration…

Falling on the deaf ears…
Of this current generation…

About what was once a kingdom…
That’s forever buried and lost…

Whilst the beaten and damned…
Quietly sit and count the cost…

Under a dark rain cloud…
In the city of the dead…

Where no one hears the screaming…
Or a single word that’s said…

You sit there
In the corner of my mind
Open, relaxed
With that languid stare
Cruel mouth
That smiles knowingly
Holding court in that chair
Not moving
Haunting my memories
Always taking me back there

You lie there
In my mind’s eye
Naked, warm
With fist gripped in my hair
Soft lips
Bruised from kisses
The bedclothes falling bare
Not covering
Revealing my desire
Always taking me back there

You walk there
In my vivid dreams
Strong, dangerous
With an intent that scares
Eyes burning
Etching your ownership
Never breaking the stare
Not blinking
Holding me captive
Always taking me back there

You stand there
In my daily conscience
Close, far
With thoughts that dare
Feel real
Breathless fast heartbeat
Chanting my eternal prayer
Not stopping
Wishing me resurrection
Take me back there
