Rose Casserley on no more the demanding sound of his snapping fingers (14 minutes ago)
"You aren't good enough"
"You're going to fail"
"You are useless"
"You are nothing"
"You're all alone"
Can't stand the murmurs
Inside my head
Twisting the words of others into cruilty
Only the hurtful messages make their way through
Struggling to find the light
Hands only grasp at emptiness
Darkness creaps in
My voice is fading
Only their wo...

Time changes everything
Time nurtures a sprout to grow into a magnificent tree
Time rips apart our flesh until the earth can reclaim it

Unable to tell if their eyes simply do not see me or if they choose not...

Close the door slowly
Be quiet as you’re leaving
And turn out the lights

Exotic colored clothes
metallic braced teeth
a refusal to be sex symbol
punk aura underneath
Living in a plastic bag

in '77 you proclaimed we where all going mad
Age, you're so afraid
of the silly billys
and been strangled by plastic popper beads
I know you're antiseptic
but your deodrant sme...
