Sweet Embrace

October 01, 2012

Listen to my words of sweet embrace
Embrace the light of saving grace
Grace I give to you, I lay down my life
Life of mine I'll give to you, I'll take the knife
Knife, thrown in unforgivable regret
Regret scraping my heart, words said never to forget
Forget the frozen truth of lies
Lies poisoning the beauty, everything dies
Dies...everything all just crumbles to dust
Dust blown away in the wind, following nothingness-lust
Lust cruel and deadly shading it's false glory in frosting
Frosting-sweet, but ultimately sickly chills the blood

forgive me what you can, what you will
Will to move on, but I am stuck in my spill
Spill my guts with nothing more to give-so you can see me bleed
Bleed your heart with me as I lie dying
Dying in an unchanging shame, sickly lying
lying, hiding, the actual pain
Pain no one really actually sees, their view obstructed by the rain
Rain will melt away the ashes of regret
Regret, but we'll all forget
Forget me, forget what I've become
Become what you were meant to be
Be free of my darkened shadow of ugly death
Death will follow where I go, I have always followed death
Death surprises not what has already died
Died I did long ago, when everything seemed to matter for naught
Not to give away in futile dreams of fantasy bought
Bought away I stumble into the pit of doom
Doom caresses the fate of arrogant ignorance
Ignorance flourishes in dead despair of faltered radiance
Radiance emanating from the asses of the lying bigots
Bigots riding freely, blinded by their own egos
Egos inflated to suffocate; egos, egos
Egos expanded until they crash
Crash against the waves against the rocks they bash
Bash the heads of the diseased rodents

Rodents running free
Take everything from me!
Free yourself from the chains of the devil
Leave me to feed his appetite of evil
And run from what you cannot see
Run away from me
And finally be free

    To die for love is an honorable cause, but an action leading to all pathways of hurt. Sorry for my random philosophical comments. I truly have been enjoying reading your work. Freedom shall reign! You express yourself without fear of being founded out. Awesome. Always, Laura
