Onceyour beauty lies restless behind those
hills, where you fought valiantly. and
the man you once were was brave and kind,
but now you are possessed by a passenger
of darkness, whispering words of your
the man you once were is forgotten, and
the man you are today, is only a ghost, a
shadow, of what you were before.
.they greet me like old friends,
ivory hands gripping my
shoulders a little too tight
to be forgiving
i tell them that i'm sorry,
and they know what i mean,
their smiles fade and the black
holes on their faces start to furrow
and i explain that it's not
quite time, not yet
i still haven't worked up the guts
to let them out
but they've heard this spiel before,
and it's getting harder to
silence the rattling, a myriad of
skulls and ribs that i can no longer
HatlessA hatless man bobbed up from the sea and asked the time
I replied that I didn't have it
The sky cracked open and a booming voice said
"It's time for your nap"
The man sunk back below the surface
I turned the paddle-boat around and headed for shore
It was too late to be out under the circumstances
Later, much later, a box was delivered to my door
In it was a beating heart
"This isn't mine" I said to the man with the box
"It was always yours, sir" he replied
Stamped on the box was "Consumable Goods"
"I'm afraid you're mistaken" I said
I have no heart, gulls picked it clean from my bones
Many a day's events have been swept under the rug since
I stopped answering the door
But the knocking never stops and the clock keeps ticking
I never wake up anymore, I just dream of winds
Blowing me from sea to shore to mountaintop
But I enjoy the music that it plays
What else can I do? I'm not here. I'm not anywhere.
An Escape from a Romantic TragedyI can only think of you -
when there's a thunder storm,
because like you, the rain makes
me want to scream until I'm ready
to forgive and forget.
But as the thunder steals my eyes -
Silence is kissing me under electric skies,
whispering against my listening lips that
I'll die if I let you return.
I'll kill myself with sarcastic
smiles along with my famous
misleading chuckles that makes
you think I'm really sane.
If only I didn't know you
were a vampire -
who fed off my misery
Too bad - -
my misery didn't want your company
to help finish what you wanted.
.when her love left, it left
the house empty
and she says
i hope one day it'll
come back to me,
cos i don't keep this shotgun
on my front porch for nothin'
Keep in Touch!
