Heroes Soon Forgotten

Disease beneath the skin, iron will can never win.
Death in the air, sorrow and misery the killing pair.
What's no longer in the mind, has left for no one to find.
The eery chill, just waiting for the kill.
Demons never cease, death will never release.
The cold dead fingers, kills sorrows singers.
The dead in the earth, doomed from birth.
Lightning streaks the sky, as angels begin to cry.
The mighty hell fire, will never tire.
The infected precense, causes all to wince.
Throughout seasons, death has no reasons.
Hours are days, as the darkness forever stays.
Knife carves through bone, as the end is shown.
Before the damned awake, this world will break.
No repents for the sinner, in this game there is no winner.
When will we see the light, for all sicken of this endless fight.
The heroes will soon be forgotten, for now the loving hearts are rotten.
In those crying eyes, the darkness continues to rise.
Death plays the tune, beckoning the wicked soon.
Will this never end, for all have not sinned.
Remembering the dead, as all watched as demons fed.
Can any make it through, as hearts break in two?
All that remains, is the haunting scars and pains.
Trembling before shadows lord, deafening as the reaper has roared.
The blade falls, without the slightest pause.
Who can rise above, and make true what we've dreamt of?
Who can we trust, to fight through greed and lust?
Shattered dreams, tore through the seams.
We fight this master, as our lives drain faster.
Death comes to all, as they hear the voiceless call.
Getting closer to the gates, who now controls our fates?
Laughter burning through our ears, consuming all fears.
Finally there is freedom, finally the light has come.

Drowned You In Red

As you suffocate the light, I'll fight with closed eyes.
As day turns to night, I consume the lies.
There's no guarantee, we will get out alive.
A chance for calamity, will not thrive.
Come get lost, inside my heart.
You know the cost, for now we're apart.
Our shattered dreams, haunt me no more.
Sorrow's tear gleams, as my heart tore.
Darkness consumes me whole, only in dreams of you.
Remember the love you stole, which caused us to be through.
You wanted blood, so I drowned you in red.
I drown in the flood, for you wished me dead.
Sweetheart you're mistaken, if you wish me to forgive.
I know you're only fakin, for you're so abusive.
Screaming through your ears, so I can be heard.
Fighting through my fears, your love so absurd.
Our diminished fire, still burns inside of me.
I hear the voiceless liar, through horrendous filigree.
Am I not your knight, in the shining suit?
Do I kill your fright, for it is hell I salute.
I am starting to wonder, about our memories.
Our love torn asunder, as I beg on my knees.
I'll never get my way, I'll never have you again.
What could I say, for I let sorrow win.
I close my eyes, and escape into a world of dreams.
The love dies, as I was torn at the seams.
Once upon a time, has no happy ending.
Look upon this rhyme, and consider death you're befriending.
I know you're scared, but so am I.
All the sorrow I've bared, let me finally die.
I thought our love, was the real deal.
What's this pain I've dreamnt of, what's this sorrow I feel?
Close your eyes and just leave, maybe you'll get away if I believe.

The Black Rose

I'm sitting here on my bed,
thinking of all the wonderful things you've said.
I can't wait to be with you,
theres nothing more I want to do.
I hate thinking of your pain,
When you cry it's like acid rain.
I'll always be by your side,
Thanks for staying on my hellish ride.
Sorry for all the times I've lied.
I will make your pain go away,
For here with you I will stay.
The rings on our fingers represent the love,
On it soars, higher and higher like a dove.
A couple of times you've talked me out of my sollution,
Everyone calling me names, is like pollution.
I'm glad we don't have to hide,
I swear I probably would have died.
You mean everything to me,
I wish they could see.
My love for you grows every second of every hour,
To you I give the thing, the black rose, my love flower.
Your hands are mine to hold,
To take away the cold.


This is another old one so if it bad sorry you had to suffer through it.

You Catch me

I cannot get to sleep, yet I dream.
Bond to forever weep, this life can't redeem.
Pictures of you, flood through my mind.
Helping me make it through, our end I will not find.
Living is a war, war is hell.
You have my heart forever more, I'd always tell.
So many rhymes, telling my story.
About all my crimes, and what little glory.
Only one true love, always you.
I've always dreamt of, us making it through.
A fire burns, within our eyes.
As the world turns, our love never dies.
So many roads, along the way.
Our goofy codes, bring us closer everyday.
All these things, all these memories.
Remembering brings, me falling to my knees.
When I fall, you catch me.
When you saw, I fought passionantly.
My broken fingers, point to the sky.
Your kiss lingers, helping us to fly.
You catch me, as my body drops.
I'm set free, when this depression stops.
I catch you, I'll always be there.
Oneday it will be just us two, for this love can't tear.

Blood I Swallow

With blood shot eyes, I heed my own cries.
The taste of her will remain, killing the pain.
So much blood I swallow, on death's road I follow.
My ash blows away, yet by her side I stay.
The end is so near, but she still fights my fear.
There is still love, to the stars and above.
I lie in our bed, while she kisses my head.
Your cries for power, leave me to cower.
She said she's mine, we keep love in line.
Your so misguiding, with the time you are biding.
I just want her in my arms, but you have so many alarms.
I want to feel her kiss, thats something i will always miss.
Now I'm suffocating, while everyone is hating.
I will save her, of that I am sure.
She will save me, that is definantly.
We save eachother, away from lifes smother.
It's words of sorrow, that decline me tomorrow.
So much blood I swallow, leaves my heart hollow.
All these things I hate, leaves you so great.
Torn apart by my seams, misery kills my dreams.
Our life was in the right direction, yet sorrow still hangs on.
She starts to cry, I start to die.
You start to lie, I say goodbye.
I love her, I dont care if it is the right thing to do, but I'm sure.

Love's Dream

I sit here and think, about me and you.
When my heart would sink, you'd pull me through.
All of this, is just love's dream.
Every single kiss, was as passionate as it would seem.
Every pain, Every penetrating sorrow.
Gave more to loves gain, for you helped me live for tomorrow.
When we were together, I felt so free.
It felt like forever, when I had misery.
But is it real, or just love's dream?
My heart you would steal, and my eyes would gleam.
We were meant to be, to forever hold eachother's hand.
Is it destiny, where we together stand?
Whatever it is, this love we cannot deny.
Because your own kiss, will be upon my lips until the day I die.
You should know I will never stop believen.
Before you go, turn to say, "I'll be back, I'm not leavin."
If you are reading this, and you start to cry.
Imagine my kiss, and hear me say, "This will never be goodbye."
So please my darling, wipe away those tears.
Don't worry about a thing, I'll fight your fears.
What we had was true, not love's lullaby.
All because of you, I didn't give up and die.
Life will never be through, In love's dream.
I always knew, things with us would turn out how they always would seem.

Moment by Moment

Yet I can't live my life by every moment.
An urge so strong, not as well spent.
I need the future tense,
I need the common sense.
A feeling I cannot pass,
Life's a splintering glass. 
Tell me how to shine,
Show me the life to find.
Your problems so unreal, 
Destroying a heart surreal.
I've spent ages unknown,
A life I've not shown.
The hours fall away,
I've not heard your voice today. 
Tell me where to go,
Show me who to know.
I heard a voice,
Breaking without a choice.
I've no life within,
You'll give a praise and sin. 
Now show me...
Now show me how to live. 
Now tell me...
Now tell me how to die.

The End Is Near...

When the blood runs free,
It strengthens me.
As I swim among the stars,
I can see my true scars.
I try to breathe,
but i have nothing to believe.
All hope for me, is lost,
was my heart the true cost?
Why cant i see,
That this life will end shamefully.
I gave you my heart,
But it fell apart.
you promised to keep,
yet i still weep.
This pain never...
This sorrow will last forever.
Why wait for tomorrow,
for all thats left is misery and sorrow.
As i drop the bloody knife,
I fall and end my life...

8-15-2012 Hotel 11

I've sat alone
For hours or days?
I do not know
Who goes or stays.
I've paid no mind
To the lost souls.
Strangely I've heard it all
Though no one surely knows.

I've been watching the streets
Watching the dying crowd.
I wish I'd joined
Yet I'll watch from my cloud.
The sun sets
While darkness closes in.
Another day passed
Again the night will win.

The night flickers
As she walks by.
How could I have missed
This woman so coy and shy?
I'm captivated
Those eyes a wonder.
Forever I've waited
To catch looks of splendor.

The lights die
As he skulks by.
I watch his face
Contort with confusion.
His thoughts poison
Venom without a reason. 
His hands flashed
His scowl gone.
Steps quicken
As he ran on.

My angel
Fallen below.
I've watched her fall
I'm the only one who will know!
I've watched her pain
In the quick flash of steel.
A heartless thought
Causing a hate so real.

I cannot escape
I cannot rescue her.
The broken thoughts
Kill all that was sure.
I'm stuck here
Away from the scene.
Every single fear
Chasing the horrors between.

I've been locked away for years
I've been dying forever.
I remember her screams
I remember the nights saviour.

It was I that night
Locked away from the world.
It was my fault
As I watched the dying girl.
It was my faith
That let her die.
The scowling wraith
Bled her dry.

No reason
Has ever been told.
No reason
For me to grow old.
I fell in love with the chase
And not the mystery.
Who erased her face
Who sent me into misery?

I'll find you
I'll kill you.
I'll meet you
I'll save you.
Someone had to die
By my hand.
She'll no longer cry
For its not as I planned.

Show me where the heart is.
I've travelled from the start.
I'm almost done.
I'm almost...

Heart You Stole

Love, the most beautiful torture.
I dreamnt of, the time when you were her.
I'll steal the diamonds, that sparkle in your eyes.
The haunting winds, see through her lies.
You're so blind, for it's my turn to sneak.
Too many times you've whined, now she's too weak.
Laughing at your despair, crying at her pain.
No longer do I care, as you leave your blood stain.
Can't you be quiet, your screams make things worse.
Her inner riot, inspires this verse.
Why the tears, weren't you so strong?
Those haunting years, relive in this song.
I tried so hard, to help you live.
I'm left so scarred, for you're so abusive.
So now I hope you see, that death is near.
You've messed with me, so welcome this fear.
She's not real, for she's a demon in disguise.
So much sorrow I feel, watch the horror in her eyes.
All the things you do, are killing me slowly.
Watch the death through, then you'll see.
We're all getting older, yet you refuse.
Your heart growing colder, for she's left to abuse.
This fire burns, no one can stop me now.
As the tide turns, the pain I can't allow
Two bullets, straight to her head.
No one forgets, for now you're dead.
I watch the crimson, flow from her body.
Now I'm done, with this animosity.
Why do you stoop so low, what have I done wrong?
Am I the last to know, why you've lived so long?
I have no control, time for you to leave.
The demon without a soul, bids you not to breathe.
Time to repay for the heart you stole, death'll help you believe.
