Where is that car going ?
And why is it getting so cold
Im not sold on this thing called life just yet
Its a hate crime to be stuck here in this hell hole
Pain is digging deep in my soul
Lately ive been on cloud 9 waiting to rain back down
Get wiped off the windshield splattered on the ground
Oh put it in reverse run back around
Those tires aint nothing but the continous...

Broken sensations flood the brain,
attempting analysis would be in vain,
a relentless emotional maelstrom,
wreaking havoc in the mind’s kingdom.
The weather has settled,
a calm both before and after a storm,
stuck in a time loop,
ashen nimbi gather around with scorn.
A shattered refraction pierces the veil,
unveiling islands in various shades of gray,

When you left, you took a piece of my heart
When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark
You took with you my light
When you left, I learned to fight
I learned to navigate this world without you by my side
I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much
Now, you're the one ...

Kneel before the rich black mud
the minty plants smell when bruised
she sees the double backed burden
spouting eggs into the brown tea water
shame gathers with the loaches at the bottom
as the dragonfly larvae pounce
and eat those who have just been born
the shadows hold no magic to her yet
Hands fly, she captures a creature
pulling its leg to keep it safe

My darkness reaches new heights,
I let my demons loose and they begin to take flight.
Ascending -- the gravity of my sins engulfs me,
and I lose the part of myself which was once light.
The corruption then starts blackening my soul, forcing it to give up its unavailing fight.

My pain screams at the top of its lungs,
Remembering all the: “if you need me(s)” now with silent tongues.
Demons storm in and begin to cloud my heart,
The spell of darkness showers and leaves its unsolicited mark.
My mouth stays still as I’m left without words,
Yet my mind fills with suicidal thoughts flooding in herds.
I wonder how it was to live my past life?

Broken feeling all alone
The dark surrounds you and all is still
Time stops ticking
Your heart no longer wants to beat, it no longer wants to live
You hear a voice whisper
You hear a voice call your name
You fall on your knees close your eyes and pray
You feel his strength
You hear his voice say , "No more!"
God says , "Rise and grow!"
Have COURAGE to let go......

Don't ever let anyone convince you
to not share your soul songs.
The weaponized words
they hurl towards you,
are formed from
their own insecurities.
You get one shot,
in this time and space,
crabs in a bucket,
and a host of other cliches,
determined to control
your creative mind.
Give in to dark energy,
and you become it.
Rise above it.
