To dream My preoccupation One might think it’s a flaw I think it’s a gift To wander in dreaminess Creating wonder for one’s self. How can it be wrong? Capture one thought Simple, serene, tranquil Make it yours If only for a brief moment Wrap it around your soul Distract yourself from life’s stresses Embrace it, dance with it You have that right What will your abstraction be?

I’m ready to go home I’m tired I saw it coming Unfolding before my very eyes A toxic entity, That was you. Full of excuses Full of lies The blankest of stares Behind your dark eyes. Joint in one hand Knife in the other, You cornered me Your angel and lover. I submitted my body But not my soul That you can’t have You heart black as coal. I’m ready to go home now Swing your steel blade I’m taking my soul with me Into the fade. Run me right through Sanguine shade Drain me right out, It’s how you are made. Dance on my corpse Scream and shout. Your days, will be numbered without any doubt. That you can count on, I’ll settle all scores My soul soars as yours roars Payback over, there’s nothing more.
