White... white light
Voices, which i don't recognize
Blood, red... red as roses
Worried glances... in their faces
Cold and dark is only what i feel...
I don't want to die...
It makes me sick, it makes me enrage
I always kept my part of the deal
You fooled me, then even dared to accuse me OF WHAT YOU DID
Trust, shattered trust
I called you a friend... my love
And you want to be friends afterwards...
Irony, sweet irony
If you ever cared... why lie?
If you ever cared...

In that same hour
Translated out of....Futility...
And they began to be sorrowful
Then cometh the wicked one
and said unto them
...must be attained
that it might be fulfilled
But I know, that even now
Charlatans composed.. Christ's Kingdom
For many baring false witness
whom they seek to kill
We have seen strange things this day
Twice lamentations... get thee hence
he demanded all repent...
In this.. year of their Lord
you shall be beaten..
Bedlam shal be thine
Babble, meditate... do these miracles
I know not whom this man ye speak

I slumbered in a peaceful grave
Just for you to find me and raise me
To be your slave.
To do your bidding as you pleased
Without consequences to anyone
Just to watch me bleed.
Toss me a treat here and there
A shiny penny or a green bill
Order after order with a smile so menacing
You say kill kill kill
I long for the sweet surrender of bliss
To be back in my slumber
That sweet release can only be given with a kiss
A kiss you have no intention of giving.
Slashing, ripping my dead flesh at your pleasure,
Abusing the privilege to force me to take orders from others in your name
Now I can’t recall a time of peace or joy
I cannot recall being free
I cannot even remember my name
What if you do come back?
What if I see you again?
What would you say?
What would I say?
They come so slow yet go so fast
Hope... Last thing lost?
What if we meet again?
The other side...
The other realm...
The memories won't fade ever...
Love comes slow and it goes so fast...
Till we meet again...
The days are long.
Longer still, are the nights.
Chasing evasive sleep;
Just beyond reach.
Hounds of madness at heel.
The howling intruding my ears.
Digging deep into my mind.
Thoughts running circles.
Bidding to be penned
But the ink well is dry.
Tearing up pages.
Motoric of a rabid rhino.
I can neither sleep
Nor can I release
The haunts keeping me awake.

Panhandled her heart
'Til she sold her hope.
Love was a vicious tool
Hammering 'til she couldn't cope.
Now she's on the edge;
Heaven in her sight.
Hell brought her to this ledge.
She wants to take flight.

dear insomnia, I am at your mercy,
laying here, spinning, so nervously
wishing you could be through with me,
uncontrollably frowning, downtrodden
buried, deep within my fluffy blankets,
watching all the shadow figures move
daydreaming, one should deliver their nightly
knuckle-sandwich, whereby I borrow slumber
Pills Like Placebos
By James Kenneth Blaylock
vulnerary, grant me some healing,
using herbal remedies, because
I'm sick and tired, ailing just ain't
for me, nor the birds, as they've
families to feed and nest to fix,
before their eggs roll right out
man, this illness has me fast,
these hallucinations give me
the worst vertigo ever, faint...
besides, my primary physician
has me at such a disadvantage,
handing out pills like placebos
Death (leave behind)
Seems like yesterday
All hopes, all dreams
Shattered into oblivion
Into dust and darkness
So cold, so cruel
A fate we all share
One set time
Leave behind all sadness
Leave behind all sorrow
Leave behind the loneliness
Leave behind love & peace
Leave behind your body
Leave behind your heart
Leave behind your family and friends
A big treasure for them
Dedicated to my friend/sister Rosalie, who passed away due to breast cancer last year and to :iconshinukoto-dei: who might have passed away too... i love you both, wherever you are please never forget it... <3
