It’s a Wonderful Lie

Everybody liesAnd there are no exceptions You’re all by yourself in this abyssSo don’t ever take off that armour Don’t take any bullshitDon’t let people get away with things you think they shouldn’tDon’t let yourself be treated badlyDon’t stop fighting back And whatever you do,Don’t talk about it.

Uncomfortably Numb

It’s a place where you are no one   Where there is no shoulder you can lean on  No clouds to protect you from the angry gaze  Nobody to wipe your tears  Not one person who looks back  That might be what lies ahead.   That scares me to the bones. And leaves me feeling numb for hours.  I don’t want to reach here.

Wildfire

Sometimes cupid hovers around you, with an embellished arrow And you are too blind to notice Wrapped up in your little selfish world Unaware. Unconscious. Unaffected. Then, the jolt. A glass shatters into millions of shards. What did you see when you awoke from your coma? Did you find yourself in a dark corner? It truly is too late now  The wedding bells are ringing in the distance All you can do is drown your blood in alcohol And feel the world spin past you I know it burns, but you have no one to blame *** Just one question Can I call you tonight?

Delirium

An odd sense of delirium sweeps over me I close my eyes and see steaming sewer grates While violins are playing Viva La Vida in my head A quiet ache, with an unknown cause No known faces among the maddening crowd A familiar place, where you have little to discover A park bench that will be etched in your memory forever An odd sense of delirium. A maze of unconnected dots.
