Long Time Gone
Standing on a sandy beach
littered with forgotten souls
within the chambers of my mind
I watch the murky water roll.
Acid tears begins to fall
searing down to flesh and soul.
Tomorrow's memories start to call
to yesterday's unwanted soul.
Companions made of hurt and pain
as exhaustion like the sunrise comes
to leave upon my heart a stain
and in my eyes a blackened sun.
For I have touched the sky it seems
the hollow world now holds me down
chains from shards of shattered dreams
that drag me daily to the ground.
I remember scents of flowers
upon the breeze of heartfelt song
but now I look around and see
that all of that's a long time gone...
Comfort In The Scarlet Thread
Life of pressures, toils and pain
like acid waves upon my shore
that e're so slowly melt way
the me I thought I was before...
Misconceptions all around
spectres of forgotten games
who's players now have turned to rust
from teardrops falling thick as rain...
My soul is bleeding from the wound
that no-one gave me yesterday
I hope I start my healing soon
and from my worries fade away...
Take the razor in my hand
squeeze it now when hope has fled
I feel the razor's kiss and find
the comfort in the scarlet thread.
Broken - 40
Optimism now recedes
into the mist from whence it came
I lay a broken, battered man
scourged by cynicism's bane
Bloody teardrops cloud my vision
muffled sobs of anguish fade
Into the ever present shadows
and thrust upon the rusty blade
Brittle bones of human feelings
broken now beyond belief
Seeking, now someplace to find
just a moment of relief
Slowly crawl away from torment
every step renews the pain
Tainted teardrops fall in rythm
to form a pounding beat of rain
Find a way, escape the prison
that you've built around my life
forsaking all your tainted wisdom
my battered body seeks a life
I pull myself up on my feet
I shake and tremble now with fear
you lash me fresh upon my back
and try to to keep me shackled near
Beating after beating now
has turned my soul from smooth to rough
I know that it will never change
and think that I have had enough
Slowly turn to walk away
ignore the angry parting lash
the shouts of anger fade away
from the present to the past
Every footstep brings me clo
