Where not a soul was likely to dwell
Pinned against the green grasses, a young girl
Injecting her ruthlessly, a cruel hunk

I detest clumsy hands all over my body
Tainting what was...

Lies paint your tongue with acid
Burning me up 
Bringing me down
To fall like toxic plastic
Tainting every loving feeling... dirty brown

Now I desperately wish for eternal night.
Betrayed by Newton’s law: an unforgiving justice.

Rhapsody of colors spread sunshine of rays have bled
Falling leaves stir ahead blanketing onto grounds bed

Crimson skies sighing amidst flocking birds’ south flying

Coming down by the mountains,
Echoes the sirens of seas.
Teaming with all life
Were clouds of foul defilement
Shifting torrents to crimson...

Metal vessel floats,
Tainting with...

An arthritic flesh

Hesitant wipes off deteriorated lens

Every exhale,
Another tragic sulk unto morrow’s pit
Flaunting suicidal fallacies

Off-white flag motions
Signaling mercy under liar’s duress

Muted pride
Cracking dusty knuckles

Penetration’s decrepit...

Silent War
There is a cold war waging deep inside of me.
What is thought, what is read.
Within my heart, within my head.
Waiting, debating, the moment to flee.

Here lies the past,
Filled with regret and uncertainty.
We wonder how long the memories last;
we feel them sapping away sanity

Secretly shrouding indiscretions
Desperately dodging discovery
Sometimes slandering skulduggery
Distorting details is...
