Hiding In The Darkness…

Stood in the corner…
Sat facing the wall…

Hiding in the darkness…
Running away from it all…

Dodging flying bullets…
Of real life responsibility...

Looking for distraction…
And chances to feel free…

Disguising all her fears…
Disgusted by her thoughts…

Dealing with the Devil…
It’s so tense, it’s so fraught…

Ignoring all the signals…
Running in the wrong direction…

Orchestrating from the shadows…
She’s perfecting misdirection…

Whilst searching for something…
Sugercoated in sweet lies…

Desperate for that someone…
Who makes her feel alive…

But reflections in hotel mirrors…
Are fucking with her head…

And all she ever thinks about…
Could never ever be said…

Her guilty mind’s mentality…
Lays on the floor of the ocean…

Trapped beneath the rocks…
And concealed by dark emotion…

She sees no way out of here…
No chance of an escape…

She’s the sum of all her history…
One she could never reshape…

She can’t change her story…
Erase the twists and turns…

And what lies before her…
Are unscripted lines she learns…

Makes it up as she goes along…
Ignoring the rules of fate…

Points the finger of blame…
With each and every mistake…

Now she’s stood in the corner…
Resting her head against a wall…

Hiding out in the darkness…
Running away from it all…

Trapped by her situation…
The weight of responsibility…

So she seeks out dark distractions…
And the chance to distort reality…

cloude face

~
On top of the world…
Looking out, peering down…

Above the snow white clouds…
Like an eagle flying round…

In the crystal blue skies…
Where the Sun’s rays dance…

He’s hanging by a thread…
And his fate is left to chance…

It’s wrapped inside a whisper…
From so very long ago…

He’s not sure what even happened…
On the Earth spinning far below…

Underneath his tired feet…
As his eyes drift in and out…

His thoughts make little sense…
And his mind is full of doubt…

Should he just forget this…
Or take a leap of faith…

And dive into the clouds…
Falling further into disgrace…

Inside an echo of a memory…
Where the clouds reveal her face…

And eyes that mesmerise his soul…
How he yearns for her embrace…

Because words are being repeated…
And he’s heard them all before…

In this world where everything has been…
And everything has gone; It is the law…

The law of this Godforsaken planet…
Where we replay others’ mistakes…

Walking in someone else’s shoes…
Swimming in a dead man’s wake…

They aren’t his, they’re human…
He’s not the first or the last…

Simply one of the imperfect sinners…
Who never learned from histories past…

Now he’s on top of the world…
Looking out, floating down…

Falling through the cotton wool clouds…
Until he finally hits the ground…

What are we afraid of…
The dead will tell no lies…

Everything we’ve hidden…
All the things that we despise…

Like skeletons in the closet…
Locked away from view…

Each of us has them…
Every year we add a few…

Memories so painful…
Of all the things we did…

Darkest black and secret…
And all we were forbid…

We knew what we were doing…
Had the freedom of choice…

The fruit we ate was bittersweet…
Laced with Satan’s voice…

Now we keep them quiet…
And try hard to forget…

Moments where we came undone…
Actions we now regret…

But memories cannot hurt us…
Unless we let them out…

So keep them locked up tight…
Don’t succumb to inner doubt…

Accept we all have demons…
Not one is beyond reproach…

None of us are flawless…
As we ride in life’s stagecoach…

It’s part of the experience…
And all part of life’s plan…

Temptation comes in many forms…
For either women or a man…

But Eye know what you’re afraid of…

Eye see it in your eyes…

Everything you’ve hidden…

All those sins you can’t disguise…

“There’s a darkness in every sense”…

Welcome to the dark side…
On the edge of the abyss…

A place submerged in shadows…
Where the fallen angels kiss…

And whisper to each other…
Forbidden fantasies and lies…

All the secrets of this world…
Carried on the wings of flies…

Delivered like a message…
On an arrow tipped with fire…

Lighting up the blackness…
Where the ungodly do conspire…

The ones who roam silently…
Trapped within a falling tear…

Who no longer feel emotion…
No hate, no love, no fear…

The lost and the damned…
In a state of perpetual strife

Who never saw this coming…
Slept walked through their life…

But now pay for their sins…
And the path they chose…

As their moments of distraction…
Became the thorns of a rose…

Now embedded in their soul…
And tearing at their skin…

An everlasting reminder…
Of the eternal Hell they’re in…

A place where human kindness…
Never began to even exist…

And demons in your dreams…
Infect, distort and twist…

Whilst in the vivid nightmares…
Your mind is filled with doubt…

As suddenly it hits you…
There is really no way out…

And as memories begin to fade…
Numbness will replace any fear…

Now was it worth the price…
Your soul has paid to get here…

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…

“There’s nothing safe, about this life”…

Death’s cold hand,
reaches out again…

Leaving behind misery,
desolation and pain…

A stark reminder,
of how fragile we are…

Here for a moment,
on a journey to the stars…

As the mortal coil,
is forever unwinding…

This life is for living,
yet we are dying…

By day and by night,
we ignore and pretend…

Whilst we edge closer,
to the bittter end…

Knowing that Death,
is always inches away…

We could dodge for years,
or we could go today…

And at that moment,
when we stop breathing…

When we are shown,
the footage of our deceiving…

Those final flashbacks,
like the movie edits…

All of the sins and
all of our regrets…

We’ll finally understand,
just what was planted…

The gift of our life,
we took for granted…

As we arrogantly wandered,
persistently distracting…

With delusions of grandeur,
whilst seldom respecting…

The power of Death and
all that he brings…

Until it’s too late and
the Angel choir sings…
