Ol’ No name

Sleeping. Dreaming. Screaming.
Thoughts run wild right out of my mind.

Teasing. Pleasing. Reasons.
Divine flower of my hour Can I. .

Climb your highest tower
Cascading showers of my

sweat blood and tears all dry
in the presence of your darkest fears.

Sleeping. Screaming. Dreaming
of a world that is much better than this.

Screaming. Dreaming. Sleeping.
In the eternally darkened  abyss.

Idle Mind

Sitting on clouds: Protecting the earth from solar rays. . 
. .What I mean now. .is I'm shielding the people I love from my selfish ways

Firing back at those who've done me wrong, but I'm doing it the right way.
Professional calls, social reform. In the night I hope they pray. 

Hoping they know what could have been. So easy for a lost soul to sin. 
These lives are too easy to end, but my level is set to difficult. 

I'm the boss. . I walk proud without any miracles.
No handicaps and no looking back. 

Just a man with idle time. Reflections of crimes done in his 
darker times. 



Darkness

I turned my back on the light
Submerged myself in the pain
 
I hate the feeling of hope
That shit drives me insane
 
They want us to pray it gets better
I still add fuel to the flames
 
Cause if this bitch gone burn
then who are we to complain?
 
You think I’m mad cause I failed?
Thinking I’m bitter from trying?
 
If so; Think again my friend.
I’m upset with the lying.
 
They told me I ‘could be more.’
They said one day I’ll ‘succeed. ‘
 
Now the only thing I believe
is that the darkness can breed
 
A stronger man than the light
I’m conditioned for worse.
 
No expectation of greatness
I’m just embracing this curse. 
 
And if you feel like all I do
is make the situation feel worse
 
Then listen to my story 
and with everything you are
Try not to burst
 
Into tears for my fellow peers
who cannot conjure the strength
To admit the right is ‘sometimes wrong.’
and wrong feels ‘better than right.’
 
All my friends are blinded by light
that promise more than the shade
 
Viewed differently because there 
are none I would save.
 
From the darkness.

Weakness in the Moment

Rueful intentions in your eyes
Awaken suddenly to your absence; a surprise
I used to sip upon your presence
then I would feast on your soul
To make you smile was my porpose
To lift you up was my goal
Needing you near; I have grown fond:
-Of your voice and of your touch
To say that I have no love for you
would be just a little ‘Too much~”
Wish I could have stopped time
to preserve those moments of bliss
But i have to be strong and overcome
sweet, tense, hot, scenes of momentary
weakness.
