Reality Twisty

In the dark hours of daylight

When the madman sings

The maniacal laughter

Of slaughter rings

Long into the bright night


As children cry

Men lie and women die

Mercy is not for thee

Goodwill and hope is not what you see

As the flag flies high


The battle lines drawn

The spoils taken in the early dawn

Where only the blood is warm

Has become the norm

Here in this heart gone black


Masochistic warlocks chant

Sadistic goddesses hear their prayers

Lies of webs add to the layers

As they enter the trance

A lonely soul


Looking for the toll

Paid in blood

On their knees in the mud

All for thee

All for you and me


Rhyme goes with reason

As the mind feels treason

Is the only goal this season

And all sins are pleasing

And you shall carry on


When I have gone you will carry on

You will grow strong

And you will know I am wrong

As the sun sets at dawn

And the moon goes high


Stutter Stop

Without reason or rhyme

It was only a matter of time

That will echo in minds

For what they will find


Without a whisper or a scream

Comes the end of the dream

It was not a nightmare, you see

Yet it was not fantasy


It simply was

And it simply wasn’t

The complications of expectations

Of something better

Feeling meant for something greater

Yet surviving instead as one does


A choice is made

A choice that has no true consequence

That leaves no voice to be heard

Only the melancholy of silence

For there is no word


That can truly explain all the pain

That dwells in the brain of one not quite yet insane

The heart grows lazy

As the soul goes crazy


The will to pump blood staggers and stutters

As the mouth only mutters

The last gasp of words that come to mind

It was only a ……….


The common brutality

Of a civilized society

It not lost upon me

It’s there for all to see

There for all to know

Yet all they do is enjoy the show


Feeding off the drama

Forgetting karma

Living in the agony

Glorifying the infamy


One or a thousand fall

The number matters little at all

Just another day

Just another story

Blazing across in its 1080 glory

A true testament to the God we pray


The god of violence

Who bestows the everlasting silence

The peace of the grave

To the old and the young

The weak and the the strong

Be they a coward or brave

The GOD of death

Whom we meet with our last breath


From the face of the Earth I dropped
Without nary a sound nor hope to be stopped
Gone was I
Quicker than you could blink an eye
Lost in the cracks between the space
Existing now without a face
No book to record my progress
Nor announce my disgrace
Nothing to proclaim the victories
Or leave my stories
I become the outsider
A technological divider
No longer looking inside
Only looking at the outside
Seeing the quiet calm of peace
And learning of the eternal feast
Held in the quiet of forgotten days
And older ways


Changing course
Leaving behind weight
Searching for that oasis
I know it’s on the horizon
Past the edge of the map
Past where monsters dwell
Over the rainbow
And beyond the gates of Eden
Into the land of Nod
Just north of the Styx
I’ll find my spot
Far away from all noise
Far from the memories
Far from the failure
I’ll find that paradise
And will live on in the whispers of shadows
