I thought about Killing You part 1
I cant lie I've thought about killing you,
There's nothing genuine or even remotely real in you,
Be honest there's some twisted excitement,
some sort of thrill in you,
I would fire every bullet from this gun,and walk over just to check if they...Read More

Unholy Persuasion

Always the weapon
and never the truth
the woeful prediction
of life's terrorism
shall always end in death

Ah such a bastion
for the ammunition of fear
to afford the devils consumption
of every soul living here
in tortuous redemption
those switchblade centuries have controlled

All for heaven
in martyrs agony
the suffering...Read More

Premium Member My Consuming Mania
Over you.
Thoughts are like knives
Stabbing at my brain,
Killing me; thought by thought,
My consuming mania!
I need to crawl out of my skin
To get away from the cutting edge
Before switchblade thoughts of you do me in.

with his umbilical cord in a knot,

his Dad was big, tough and burly,
while his new...Read More

Premium Member Workplace harassment
Workplace harassment is rife, alive and well, 
Occurring too often in this pseudo company.
Derogatory, condescending words roared, inches from your face, 
Sounding like a battlesque symphony.

People in charge making foolish demands,
Then usurping workers places, employing visible stealth.
Not being productive, effective...Read More

In A Perfect World
In a perfect world, no one would be depressed
hopeless, or opressed.
People could just be who they are,
without others thinking they are bizarre.
I could walk down the street without being afraid
of a man coming at me with a switchblade.
A person of...Read More

Devil is Mine

Especially when blood flows like wine

Nothing to hold, yet
Strained by light, becoming a shadow, hiding in that shell
Crawling in the dream a brief reality

Hell no I said
I laugh because it's funny, you know?
But for some reason unknown to me 
I'm emotionally stuck! Hahahaha

A nice ride in the evening I had arranged.

I want to get a guillotine
to cut off your head
I want to shoot you
while you are asleep in bed

I want to murder you 
and disappear into the night

I want to beat you

A heartless melody, baby hold that fermata

A Bad Shortcut
This season, the Easter Bunny was running late.
He made a bad decision that sealed his fate.
Nobody can say that his choice was good.
He took a shortcut through a low-income neighborhood.
Some young hood carrying a switchblade knife,
put an end to the...Read More

As I sit, staring out the window
'Bring back the sun' rings in my ear;
Constantly echoing in my mind,
destroying me like a switchblade;
Eating me from inside

To everything..
Turn, turn, turn
Standing upon this ledges edge
Uncovered as peering amid
The city lights below
Biopsies water colours..
Moments splashed about
This vestige of neons
Dissecting organisms hues called life ?
Time, seeking purlieu sorties
Reasons incised..
Lifted from the palette
Of brushed; their rhyme.

The cold digging in my grave
Your voice I hear in the mist
Carry me to your arms
Warm next to your bosom
Safe within thy womb

The crystal ship not sailing

Switchblade Tragedy
Instant friction
Lost in a fiction
A certain malnutrition
Of the world we live in
Can't stop this rejection
Familiarization is a complication
A mirrored reflection
Down to the core of perfection

These are my switchblade tragedies
Deal on a dime
Don't know what it means
Just a lost cause with...Read More

I miss you.
You were my homie I

You were there to cheer

You turned me friendly
whenever I was mad.

no other.

I found the power to turn beauty to a pig.

Do you expect me to jump?
I found the power to turn beauty to a pig

I only pushed you away cause I love you.
