DARKNESS BREEDS

“Darkness Breeds” 

Darkness breeds

Endless needs

Hellfire breathes

As darkness breeds

Life stands still

Hopeless will

Voices shrill

As life stands still,  as life stands still

Chorus:

The night’s filled with the broken hearted

Lives spent with the days uncharted

Stuck in the emptiness and the hollow

Of the darkness and the sorrow

Don’t give a damn about tomorrow

Hell is your nightmare

Death will take you there

Hell is your nightmare

Let me take you there

Illness comes

Dying young

Life succumbs

As illness comes

Pain is real

Sharp as steel

Crying kneeled

Cuz pain is real, cuz pain is real

Repeat chorus

THE EYES OF A CHILD

“The Eyes of a Child”

An old wise man stopped

A little girl to say, 

“Be careful, little girlie,

Be careful what you say.”

The little girl replied, 

“Hush, old man, I speak to pray.”

“But who is listening on the other side

To a little girl who’s full of lies?”

“I pray to be forgiven.

My sins He has stricken, and

Therefore, do not lead to my demise.”

With rolling thunder and a strike of lightning,

The old wise man turned into something frightening.

Blood dripped from his jaws after he bit the neck

Of the little girl who was all dressed in red.

The old wise man laughed and laughed,

Until he realized the little girl was laughing too.

The old man asked the little girl,

“Why do you laugh before you die? 

Is it because you believe in heaven?”

The little girl stopped laughing long enough to reply,

“No, that’s not why After all, that heaven exists is just a lie. 

Isn’t that right?”

“Then, why may I ask are you laughing, too?”

“Because a demon with a bigger bite is standing right behind you.”

WHEN THAT TIME COMES

“When That Time Comes”

Going to cry

Sincerely, going to cry

Really wishing

I would die

Palms are sweaty

Eyes filled with tears

My whole body

Shaking from fear

I just don’t get it

Why me?

Why me?

My spirit’s bound

Longing to be free

Just pull the trigger

And I’m done

My hand firmly grips

The butt of the gun

The barrel sets

Between my lips

The gun comes to rest

At my hips

SEDUCTION

“Seduction”

I have a secret

Come fly with me

I’ll take you on a 

magical fantasy 

Ride

Don’t be shy

It’s only for 

Just one night

I’ll wrap you in a lover’s embrace

And of me you shall taste

I’ll be your ambrosia

And brighten your aura

You’ll feel an explosion 

Of raw emotion

You are my heartbeat now

I am your soul

Intertwined

We are made whole

Never more

Shall you survive

Without me

By your side

One night of love

Is now forever

For eternity

Joined together

SHACKLED AND CHAINED

“Shackled and Chained”

I’m shackled and chained

Feeling indescribable pain

Trying to escape

Yanking down on the drapes

They fall to the floor

As I hear you at the front door

I get to my knees

Just able to see the trees

I drop and I sigh

Nothing there but trees and sky

BROKEN

“Broken”

Emptiness

A deep hole

Hollowed out

By false promises

And shattered dreams

A hole where a heart 

Once filled with laughter and joy

Used to be

Now, nothing

Nothing but pain

From lies, deceit and manipulation

No need to even hear explanations

Loss that makes you grieve like someone passed

Only noone has

I have been hurt so much

That I feel my soul is bleeding

No healing touch from God can make this better

The pain is too deep for even prayers to reach and make me whole

I fall into a pit of despair

The hands of hell catch me as I fall

I am swallowed by the depths of anger, bitterness, and resentment

My heart explodes within me

I am too broken to heal

THE BATH

“The Bath”

lying here

eyes half-closed

listening to the whispering winds

that say I told you so

heart real heavy

mind unclear

soaking in a red bath

and recalling everything that set me on this path

the ripples in the water

each a reminder of a fatal mistake in my life

‘til I lie still

making them disappear at will

head leaning to the side

eyes fully closed

wishing I could turn back time

and say this fate ain’t so

FOREBODING

“Foreboding”

I slit my veins

Black blood drains

Licking my wrist with my tongue

Freed from chains

From which my body strains

A weakening of my lungs

Freed from pain

These bodily remains

Feeling only like I’ve been stung

Freed from an idle brain

My epitaph explains,

“Upon her every word, he hung.”

A GODLESS ACT

“A Godless Act”

Sweating profusely

One arm holding down her hands

My other hand covering her mouth

Lest someone hear

My sinful deeds I do aspire

With every second I perspire

Brushing my forehead across my arm

Her frantic struggle leading me on

Her bare teeth against my palm

But that sets off no alarms

I have her good and bound now

And right where I want her

There is no one to free her

There is no one to see her

Everything in my mind starts to blur

I take from her her innocence

For a sudden rush, an orgasmic sense

Nothing matches this feeling I have

As I remove myself from within her

With every lover the stronger I get

Ah, to be a god, my goal be met

THE AWAKENING

“The Awakening”

Eyes iced over

Flesh all frozen

Refrigeration for the dead

Darkness weakens

Counting sheep and

Trying to sleep but

Having no success

Ah, light by my head

Bright light shed

All over my head

Waking me up

Trying to move

Fingers following along a groove

Heartbeat stopped so abruptly

Head pops and snaps

Then neck just cracks

Awakening of a new soul

Hunger and thirst increase

Gnashing teeth and

Licking lips

As I break free from death’s grip

Someone’s here

Someone’s with me

Oh, how I love their scent

It’s so delicious

I long to lick him

So I get up

I creep up behind him

He turns and goes nuts

He runs from me

But I can’t let him go

I have to taste him

I bite off his nose

That is when

I lose all control

I fight with him

And pull him down

Hunger insatiable

In death, I’m unstable

Doomed to wander ‘til I’m free

Morgue door opened

My freedom chosen

Now, headed down these ravaged streets

I couldn’t stop biting him

Once he was on the ground

Back bone deep, I am bound

No heartbeat in me

Yet, I thrive

But it’s obvious

I’m not alive

When I’m done

I walk, I wander

I just feed

No time to slumber

Continuously moving forward

For whatever reason

To whatever end

Into the dark

I do descend

For forever, my eternity
