Into the water

Pieces and pounds

Flesh and soul

Some given and some sold

Some stolen truth be told

To chance and choice

As time wheels around

And all that I once knew

Turned into a sea of dark blue

To black for there was no coming back


Time and time again

10 seconds to change 

10 hours to think

10 days to break

Time is an enemy 

Upon which the strongest yield

Or find themselves broken on the field 

Life is not strange

It’s moments of clarity simply shrink

As time passes 

with an ebb and flow like molasses 

Cold Fire

Never letting it show

Trying to keep it all under control

Angels and Demons scratching at the cage of my soul

So far and still nowhere

A life without care

A life I don’t know


Go to sleep and wake up exhausted

From dreams of possibility

From nightmares of nothingness

Consumed by the sentimentality

Of the forgotten savage

And all that was said

In the pursuit of shiny golden happiness

Yet lost to memory ravaged


By the blurring of reality

With the feeling of deja vu

As dreams come true

With a nightmare’s sensibility

In the days that pass

As nothing lasts


In the existence of the temporary

Coupled with the necessary

Only manic laughter prevails

As the beasts escape their cells

And being careful for what you wished for

Never stops you from wanting more


Sharp words, Cutting deep

Wounded soul, bleeding heart

Left on the floor in tatters, torn apart 

Were I not a monster I would weep

Yet I have no time and promises to keep

As I make my way through the dark day 

Of absence sleep 

Yet dream of the love that slipped away 

Because a monster doesn’t know how to say you are it’s everything 

When it is nothing
