The Mirror of Dreams…

He won’t be the first…
And will not be the last…

To have his heart broken…
Shattered just like glass…

Fooled by the lightning…
That flashed in her eyes…

The danger and excitement…
Yet deceived by her lies…

The words of seduction…
That nestled inside his ear…

And made him pine for her…
When she wasn’t near…

He will never undertand…
How he fell for her charms…

Leaving him so blinded…
Causing so much harm…

Ripping him into pieces…
As he fell deeper in love…

Thinking she was his Princess…
Fitting like hand in glove…

Caught up in the moment…
His heart franticly beating…

But she took him for granted…
And was already cheating…

Both on herself and on him…
As she kept looking for fun…

He was not enough for her…
He could never be the one…

Who would tie her down…
Make her heart surrender…

Becoming so soft and gentle…
So loving and so tender…

It was never her style…
And never on the cards…

As she craved his attention…
But then coldly discards…

When it got too much…
Or required any emotion…

And he won’t be the last…
To have his heart broken…

I see you out there staring at me…
With a curious mind full of inquiry…
So let me tell you my life’s story…
And you may start to understand…

This is my version of history…
Revealing some of the mystery…
Opening your eyes, so you may see…
The blood stains on my hand…

From the episodes of treachery…
To the pure underhand adultery…
That explain my downward trajectory…
As I walked across this land…

Living a life entombed in misery…
Yet with flashes of spine-chilling electricity…
And infused with such fucking intensity…
But built solely on quicksand…

Where dark forces used their trickery…
Where people I met were so slippery…
Filling me with the Devil’s mastery…
And I fell under his command…

So even Mermaids in the sea…
Swam though my wasted life’s debris…
Refusing to give respite or company…
As I somehow tried to stand…

But I’m not seeking your sympathy…
Even if that sounds contradictory…
As you watched events from the gallery…
And you know I will be hanged…

For my crimes and for my foolery…
During enlightenment and discovery…
That fucked with my psychology…
Where nothing went as planned…

Eroding my powers of recovery…
To bounce back from life’s savagery…
But the judgement made against me…
Means any future is now banned…

And I’ll pay for my skulduggery…
So no matter what you’ll think of me…
As you gaze at my hell bound body…
I know I’m beaten and I’m damned…

Tired, sore eyes…
A tear stained face…

A grieving body…
Feeling displaced…

Lost in a world…
That can’t understand…

Her spirit is broken…
She misses his hand…

Haunted by the ghost…
Memories of her man…

He was taken too soon…
This wasn’t the plan…

Now left all alone…
She’s failing to cope…

She’s losing the will…
She’s lost all hope…

Not able to sleep…
Feeling so depressed…

Leaving her floating…
In a state of distress…

Wishing that death…
Would visit again…

Reach out his cold hand…
Take away all her pain…

And be finally reunited…
With her soul mate…

High above the clouds…
At Heaven’s golden gates…

Where she knows he’ll wait…
Until the end of time…

For her to join him…
At the end of her climb…

Up the long stairway…
At her journeys end…

That peaceful moment…
When she will ascend…

But until that time…
Where she will be free…

Her life’s stuck in limbo…
Full of loneliness and misery…

What is the point….
What is the purpose…

Day after day…
This feels like a circus…

With minimal laughter…
But a host of clowns…

Life just drags on…
Little joy to be found…

Taking each small step…
In hopeless mental agony…

Beginning each tedious day…
Upon bended knee…

Feeling the pressure…
Buckling under the stain…

Where is the benefit…
Just what do we gain…

What is the mission…
And where is the plan…

Is this the result of Karma…
Or are we hit by the man…

Who sits upon high…
Carefully watching the world…

Spinning faster and faster…
Into a blue and green blur…

Enjoying our pain…
Smiling as we suffer…

As we cheat and we lie…
Try to kill one another…

With bombs and with knives…
A real and physical death…

Or with words and actions…
That mentally steal our breath…

Leaving us pleading…
Praying to versions of God…

That a saviour will come…
Jettison our escape pod…

But until that moment…
Life drags on and on…

And each distant sunset…
Initiates depression’s dark dawn…

There are things I never told you…
There are things I’d never say…

I kept them locked within me…
It has always been that way…

From the moment that I met you…
To the day that you walked out…

I built a wall around myself…
Constructed from self-doubt…

And that nagging little feeling…
That I was never good enough…

To match up to your expectations…
The standards set, so tough…

Which left me always wondering…
Why you accepted being with me…

And whenever I was close to you…
I always really struggled to see…

At the side of your true beauty…
What it was that caught your eye…

And forced you to stick by me…
As all those years went by…

From moments of high drama…
To flashes of pure ecstasy…

But even on the brighter days…
My inner demon would tease…

And that little voice inside me…
Would always strip away…

Any thoughts of true happiness…
Ruin any sunny and tranquil day…

And remind that your presence…
Was always more than I deserved…

Each moment that I treasured…
Weren’t really mine to be preserved…

And like a self-fulfilling prophecy…
Those cutting words became true…

Watching you walk out the door…
My soul simply withdrew…

Leaving me in a dark place…
Where I no longer really exist…

And words I now say to you…
Are so very easily dismissed…

The Killer…

dark-man

~

Lost within his life’s direction…
He took the wrong train connection…
His destination is unknown…

His eyes survey the gathered crowd…
A quiet coach, no noise allowed…
He sees her sat alone…

Keeping her eyes on the book…
He was bewitched by just one look…
She’s chilled to the bone…

She doesn’t even know his name…
His evil crimes or hidden shame…
Or his heart that’s made of stone…

He’s craving her undivided attention…
She’s floating in an air of tension…
Into confusion she is thrown…

Trying to avoid his charming stare…
It could be fun, if she’d only dare…
Common sense on hold…

A spark of innocent conversation…
Ignites thoughts of dark temptation…
Her confidence has grown…

She begins flirting with her hair…
In his trap, she’s now been snared…
She plays with her phone…

Fallen for his devilish smile…
His journey becoming more worthwhile…
But time has quickly flown…

He leans in for a stolen kiss…
Her company he’ll never miss…
She’s lost in a twilight zone…

She never felt the sharpened blade…
With her life, she’s sadly paid…
His hand stifled her moan…

Quietly slumped in her bloody chair…
No one around noticed or even cares…
He plants a kiss on her cheekbone…

Another added to his list…
This serial killer in our midst…
The man who angels disown…
