This pain will one day pass…
And your eyes will begin to see…

The world spinning around you…
Is still full of wonder & fantasy…

And the hurt you are now feeling…
Will heal in the fullness of time…

Becoming your heart’s scar tissue…
A lump that will always remind…

Of the time when you flew so high…
Stretched your wings amongst the birds…

Danced between thunder & lightning…
Allowed electricity to ignite your world…

Taking you to some places…
You never thought you’d go…

Tasting such experiences…
You never thought you’d know…

And emotions never felt before…
Due to a version of yourself unseen…

Someone who sat deep within you…
Yet you never had the chance to be…

But now she walks alongside you…
The two of you have become one…

Now you face the challenge…
Of keeping her out of the sun…

Making sure she’s quietly hidden…
Forcing her out of plain sight…

Because if reality ever sees her…
Your mind will lose this fight…

And then life won’t be worth living…
Because it won’t be worth the cost…

As everything you know & love…
Will be shattered & will be lost…

So don’t let her colour your world…
Prevent her from taking control…

Be strong try to fight her…
Because the prize is your very soul…

As I promise this pain will pass…
And your eyes will slowly see…

That what maybe seemed so exciting…
Was always just a vivid fantasy…

Walking Alone Through the Darkness

Walking alone through the darkened streets
No hand to hold mine for company
In the past my hand did not swing freely
It was always grasped by another

There have been many hands that I have held
At the time they made me feel less alone
But when they suddenly let go…
I felt more alone than before

I wished I had never touched them, caressed them
Allowed them to guide me into darker streets
But my hand swings freely tonight
In the dim illumination of a distant street light

I am walking on this particular street because
One of the hands guided me here
Into the darkened alley with no lamp posts
Promising they would not leave me

But I walk on my own with less fear
Than when the last hand was here
It seems like a backwards tale to tell
Of loving another who put you in Hell

Now I can touch and hold what I choose
My hand is not owned by any other
I can guide my own feet by the light in the distance
It gets a little brighter as I follow its guide

“Barely holding it all together”…

Fallen mixed messages…

From a perfect Queen Bee bitch…

His deaf ears refuse to listen…

To her blind sales pitch…

Working her out in circles…

Shaking her out of his mind…

As he basks in Yellow sunshine…

The cold Black snowflake kind…

Her words are dark and chilling…

But he doesn’t listen to what she says…

Simply remembering the innocent times…

It’s always easier that way…

Because her sword has a double edge…

With a blade that slides through skin…

And when she plays with cruel desire…

It’s impossible for him to win…

So as her world begins an ending…

He peers through broken glass…

Listening to her breathing…

Then searching through her trash…

But the beast with wings approaches…

And soon it will be time…

He will have no place for hiding…

She will destroy his state of mind…

Sanity…

At…

Risk…

“Maybe I can’t see, maybe it’s just me”…

Be strong and fucking fight her,

As I promise this pain will pass and
