“There is a girl I used to know”…

art

~

She was the exception…
She broke all your rules…

That tiny fallen angel…
With a tendency to bruise…

Who had unrivalled beauty…
With the brains to match…

You should have stayed away…
Should have only watched…

Keeping a safe distance…
Instead you grew too close…

And in the lingering shadows…
You were hit by Lust’s arrows…

As her smile lit up the darkness…
And her eyes just hypnotised…

You fell hook, line and sinker…
Bought into Lust’s sweet lies…

She cast a spell upon you…
Made you think it was all true…

And you fell so fucking deeply…
Into an ocean of neon blue…

That felt so warm and safe…
Where mermaids swam silently…

Your heart was bound and captured…
Your eyes too blind to see…

Becoming locked in limbo…
In between the dark and light…

A place you couldn’t escape from…
And it haunted you at night…

Where it all seemed so perfect…
And the beast was not a fool…

Where there was no need…
To act so fucking cool…

Like a poor man’s James Dean…
A rebel without a cause…

You ignored the true reality…
Overlooked all of your flaws…

And it always ends the same…
But even though it’s far behind…

Those moments that you shared…
Still weigh heavy on your mind…

“She’ll come slowly rising, on the air”…

She found the letter…
And read the words…

She fell to the ground…
Her cry scattered the birds…

She laid there in shock…
Just couldn’t take it all in…

She didn’t know what to do…
Didn’t know where to begin…

She was enveloped in sadness…
Became shrouded in black…

She couldn’t ever accept…
He was never coming back…

She became so isolated…
Felt so goddamned trapped…

She was blinded by the pain…
Knew she would never adapt…

She loved him so much…
But felt so empty inside…

She craved his smell…
Needed his hand to guide…

She felt so alone…
Like life had no meaning…

She became a shadow…
Only seen in the evening…

She could not see…
Knew the silence would last…

She couldn’t move on…
Was entombed in the past…

She had believed in forever…
And dreamt of growing old…

She could not cope…
As depression took hold…

She lost the will to live…
And decided to get out…

She swallowed the pills…
Without hesitation or doubt…

Then she found him again…
As he sat waiting for her…

The couple finally reunited…
In Death’s cold, hazy blur…

“It’s my soul that you shook”…

free

Smiling with his eyes,
quickly gaining her trust…

Too good to be true,
so gentle and yet… just…

Something about him,
something not quite right…

Like he had a dark aura,
that burned so bright…

And one day she saw it,
her heart nearly stopped…

Left her bruised and broken,
as the mask quickly dropped…

So she ran and she ran,
as fast as she could…

Getting far, far away,
leaving him for good…

Regaining some control,
beginning to live her life…

Away from his grasp and
his venomous spite…

Breaking those chains,
running wild and free…

Keeping it so real,
for everybody to see…

Always moving forward,
never daring to look back…

Where memories sit waiting,
to uncoil and to attack…

And unpick the scars,
that time has slowly healed…

Because on this journey,
her true voice was revealed…

And she found a space,
his anger couldn’t reach…

An independent haven,
on her own private beach…

Numbing all her pain,
with a soul filled language…

Revitalising her soul and
repairing all the damage…

“I’ll never find anyone to replace you”…

remember

They remember the time…
It was fresh, it was new…

When it was their secret…
And only they knew…

Remembering the feelings…
Those trembling words…

And subliminal messages…
That only they heard…

Remembering the moments…
Stolen from each other…

And the conversations…
That ended in the gutter…

Remembering the chills…
When their eyes first met…

The flash of electricity…
Moments they’ll never forget…

Remembering the kiss…
That sparked it all…

A single strike of lightning…
That became a fireball…

Remembering that night…
When everything twisted…

Reality became fantasy…
As inhibition was lifted…

Remembering the aftermath…
The confusion that followed…

A host of mixed messages…
And bitter pills swallowed…

Remembering those words…
Cutting like a knife…

Destroying each memory…
Made deep in the night…

Remembering the hurt…
All the tears and the pain…

That drove a wedge between…
And vowed never again…

Remembering the bond…
Lost with a roll of the dice…

And those starlight lovers…
Who paid the ultimate price

“Our heartbeats becoming slow”…

in_a_week_by_notes28-d8vac5f

~

The big city boy and
the small town girl…

Lust filled the senses,
as the whirlwind whirled…

Under star filled skies,
it was laced with mystery…

Playing in the darkness,
fulfilling fantasies…

Revealing to each other,
dark forbidden secrets…

Trying not to contemplate,
any morning after regrets…

That would surely follow,
in the cold light of day…

But until that moment,
in each other’s arms they lay…

Making a commitment,
to end it all together…

A simple suicide pact,
that would last forever…

And when the time came,
they would find a place…

To lay with each other and
hold each other’s gaze…

Leave behind the madness,
begin a new journey…

Which would be eternal,
one that would see…

Them together forever,
floating amongst the stars…

As light as a feather,
no baggage and no scars…

Just two souls colliding,
a pair of hearts in love…

Refusing to be chained,
finding freedom high above…

But until that sweet moment,
no one can ever know…

As this love is forbidden,
it belongs in the shadows…

“I began to lose control”…

angtr

~

It whispers through the trees…
Bringing the storm behind it…

It’s in the corner of your eye…
Hoping that you’ll submit…

Its voice is always talking…
On a mission to distract…

It takes pleasure in your pain…
And the way that you react…

You’ve tried to out run it…
But it’s always been there…

Hidden in the Moon’s soft glow…
And the Sun’s harsh glare…

It’s watching and it’s waiting…
But never letting you breathe…

As it twists and it distorts…
Begging you to receive…

And give in to its darkness…
Be consumed by it all…

It wants to enter inside you…
And bear witness as you fall…

With a morbid curiosity…
As it assumes full control…

No matter how hard you fight…
It will take over your soul…

You won’t be the first…
And you will not be the last…

It’s had so many victims…
From the present and the past…

You will become one of many…
Who’ve had their soul removed…

Don’t allow it to enter…
You don’t have anything to prove…

It will knock at your window…
And taunt you from afar…

It will tempt and persuade…
Till the door is open ajar…

Allowing it to attack…
Allowing it to consume…

Because it will begin your ending…
And it will bring your doom…

“Would you really want me in the light of day”…

they_hide_in_the_shadows_by_mbhenriksen-d7qwiud

She’ll never let you know…
And never let you see…

Hiding in the shadows…
An imperfect mystery…

Refusing to tell you…
As you’d never understand…

The dark, sinful cravings…
Ignited by your hand…

The raging fire it starts…
Deep within her soul…

It’s no longer a game…
It’s out of all control…

Leaving her breathless…
And floating in space…

Just one fleeting touch…
Pushes her into disgrace…

Painting vivid pictures…
Inside her sweet head…

In a parallel world…
As she lies in her bed…

One that only exists…
Outside of her reality…

A place she escapes to…
Amidst all the insanity…

Where time stands still…
And the rainbows shine…

Where nobody notices…
The severity of her crimes…

And each fallen angel…
Turns a blind eye…

Providing forgiveness…
Under a dark black sky…

And she keeps it covered…
Out of plain sight…

It’s her constant struggle…
And her daily fight…

To keep it all hidden…
Distracting what you see…

But shrouded in the shadows…
She’s alone and so empty…

“And we know there’s no need to forgive”…

The little bird glides…
Upon broken wings…

Burdened by pain…
And unable to sing…

Not able to focus…
On the world around…

Her ears are deaf…
Can’t hear a sound…

Consumed by the black…
That covers her eyes…

Distorts all her senses…
She’s blind as she flies…

Into the huge storm…
That rages ahead…

Battling her demons…
Who want her dead…

Struggling to find…
A sanctuary shelter…

A safe place to land…
Someone to help her…

To tend her wounds…
See her though the night…

Ease all her worries…
Listen to her plight…

Someone she can trust…
With her inner fears…

Hold her so very tight…
And dry all her tears…

Instead she is left…
So cold and all alone…

Far far away from…
Where she calls home…

And the one she left…
Who broke her heart…

Leaving her needing…
To make a fresh start…

Where she can begin…
To rebuild and live…

Never, ever intending…
To look back and forgive…

“Sunlight wouldn’t melt her, this is how I found her”…

kiss

~

Sugar coated lips,
spinning silver lies…

Flashing pure lust,
from honey trap eyes…

Playing her games and
drawing you in…

Truth became dare,
on a night of pure sin…

Speaking in Voodoo,
weaving a spell…

Exploiting your weakness,
she knew you too well…

Never saying anything,
but always just enough…

Designed to be intriguing,
in a simple double bluff…

Trapping your mind and
twisting your thoughts…

Promising maybes,
yet delivering nought…

Leaving you breathless,
full of frustration…

Filling your head with,
thoughts of temptation…

But left you hanging,
feeling like a fool…

Nothing was real,
in her fantasy whirlpool…

And now she’s gone,
without saying goodbye…

Her promises disappear,
on the winds gentle sigh…

As you try so hard,
to get her out of your head…

Remove the images and
words that she said…

Whilst you stand there dazed,
dazzled and confused…

It was fun whilst it lasted,
but you know you were used…

“Don’t you try, to bend him until he breaks”…

Eyes are burning…
Fired with anger…

The danger levels…
Now red, not amber…

Questioning sanity…
Running from it all…

When Karma strikes…
The mighty will fall…

In a game of chess…
Where winners lose…

And the taste of victory…
Simply lights the fuse…

Causing destruction…
Heartache and pain…

Where nothing survives…
Or will ever be the same…

And cruel words spoken…
Leave permanent scars…

Infecting with a poison…
Blacking out the stars…

Allowing the darkness…
To once again descend…

And open the void…
Where reality bends…

In a story that grows…
Into distorted fiction…

With a final chapter…
Laced with friction…

But deceiving the reader…
And hiding the truth…

It wasn’t always this way…
But there is no proof…

Only the present…
The here and the now…

Where lightning strikes…
And the characters row…

Always striving for…
The very last word…

Whilst the heart of the matter…
Remains twisted and blurred…
