The Tide Will Come Out Of Your Mouth

SMASH!

Every time the glass of your skull

Crashes into the fist of another memory

To crush you where you stand

Because another memory has broken you

Because another memory has entered you

Like intruders, they force their way inside

They punch their way into your attention

They invade your heart

Until you must look at them

All so that they can violate you again

They...

The patient

"You have been here a few days now",

"Since Saturday", she replied

"And why did you come in here?"

"Because I attempted suicide"

 

She didn't have any worries,

She wasn't sad or happy,

It was blank, emotionless state,

Nothing to do, nothing got her interest,

Now been quite a few time living through this noiseless rhyme,

It was like a vegetative state, living in her mi...

Disesteem

Painful embers stab the dark

Of pain too rich to bear

Callous flames, beguile a heart

Left stained by acrid air

Dreams denied by rancid thoughts

On lips too vain to care

Lifetimes lost in frozen eyes

A soul beyond repair

Helter Skelter

Climb the steps, one by one

Feel the breeze refresh me

Hands can nearly touch the sun

Golden rays drip down around me 

 

Love and splendour encases my heart

With the world shining out all its glory

A brand new day, a glimmering start

New beginnings, new days, new story

 

Top of the slide, secure on the mat

Fluttering lungs fill up with excitement

The world whizz...

Ophelia

Days began and nights would turn

Through endless cycles of despair

The living dream, compelled by hope,

Carried away and lost in ethereal life. 

 

Shattered byways that led to want and love

Broken by lies and embittered deceit

With the emptiness rotting inside. 

 

Frustration abounded and sank In my heart

Fulfilment seemed to slip through fingers

As the quicksand o...

I Can See Her

I can see her running through the grass,

Holding her sisters hand,

I can see her.

No one else can.

I can hear her laughing at the wind,

Singing and dancing with her twin,

No one else can.

Each time I watch one,

I see her too.

When one walks into the room,

I see her come in too.

No one else can.

I know why I see her.

I know why I hear her.

What I don't know...

Sleep with me

Stay with me dont leave me in this dark valley 

Lay on my emotions pet them tell them it can all go away

Everytime im sleepless i have images of our times coming and going

Eventually youll walk in that fire and understand the burning 

Peoplw will walk in an ember from hell just to find out where your going

Will we fall to our senses and stumble down lonely park drive 

I see the s...
