Lighter Moments

Pardon me while I step out of my mind
While I still can, while its not yet a crime
As the world turns on holy wars
Waves crash strongly on all our shores
Images in my mind I wish were not stored

The tide comes in, the tide goes out
Time surely we know nothing about
Yet the man-made seconds tick on by
Yet the times remain precious in our eyes
Yes we look back from time to time

In our mind of hopes and dreams
Is a reason to live on it would seem
If you are reading this on some day cold
Be glad that you are not a flattened toad
For the good times never grow old...so I'm told

So be brave and have faith
Your soul is better off with no hate
Though these words may seem lame
At least you know that you're not to blame
They'll rhyme just right when it rains

Darker Moments

Another one from long ago...

I wish him pain
Deadly and endless, coursing through his veins
He is the child molester, the sex offender
And we all hate him

There he was door locked behind him
Drunk off of evil
Hell bent on sin
She didn’t have a chance
Too young to understand
Yet the fear beat in her heart
As he fed off her innocence

She tried to speak but no one believed her
They used to be close, but now they have betrayed her
Who can you trust when you are not trusted
When you have been blamed for being helpless

I respect these women for being so strong
For being alive, for standing up so tall
They will never forget what was done to them
And forever they will pray those men burn in hell

Wrote this long back...

Irritable I am
By every little thing
Like a crawling under my skin
I boil from deep within
Everything crashes to the floor
Dissolving into nothing
I wanna take everyone down with me
Almost enjoying the sin

Beasts inside my head
Clawing at each other…..peace now a memory
Beasts inside my head
Eating from within….peace now far away

Everything’s happening together
One thing after another
Change is coming fast
Fast at lightning speed
The beasts they are hungry
Hungry for more blood
I wanna hunt all that is around me
I am enjoying the sin

Breathing slow
Deeply waiting
Everything is clear now
It will soon come to an end
The beast is on a leash, holding ever tighter
I will control the madness….before it consumes me.
