The Good The Bad And The Ugly

Prologue:

It takes a heart free of hate
to let go of a false ownership 
to step beyond your fears
provide strangers a helping hand

It should be a pre-requirement 
of possessing our largest organ
that which clothes a person’s frame

everyone should earn their coat of skin
defines them as humans
than we could easily separate and remove
the demons roam Earth disguised as people


they sat paralyzed 
as various notes brushed lightly against their senses
eventually accompanied by bare traces of rain 
stroked their faces with naked fingers
occupied their emptiness 
with the welcomed whispers of music
spread their lips 
leaving a lucent mark of bliss
on the bones of their cheeks
the melody
drew them into an imaginary reality
safe from the ugliness of their truth

“another day of hell on Earth”

(a hell willingly supplied by hollow frames reciting words from their Fiery Red God while hiding behind christian bibles)

temporarily frozen against the symmetry 
of an angels canvas  
they would breath the unabridged artistry
for a brief but satisfying moment
the musicians for the time being where their Gods
and they relished in the quenching fruits
filled their empty dreams
the simple beauty of song was undeniable 


Epilogue:

It takes a heart free of hate
to let go of a false ownership 
to step beyond your fears
provide strangers a helping hand

It should be a pre-requirement 
of possessing our largest organ
that which clothes a person’s frame

everyone should earn their coat of skin
defines them as humans
than we could easily separate and remove
the demons roam Earth disguised as people
