My Decay

By Deathkitten

Reminiscing with great sadness
Flashes of everlasting madness
Written words fill my wall
They tell a secret great & tall
Emotions raw
Connecting string to string
It's tug-o-war, you see?
Hollow caves & ocean waves
Drifting; Sifting
Limping shore to shore
Whispering thoughts into the breeze
Radiating energy
Bursting into flames it seems
Go & whip the sun's eyes
It gazes through me
It steals my light
It's hazy
I'm crazy
A lesson learned in time
Fold the boundless boundaries
Pack them with deceit
There's letters in the sand
Of truth & disbelief
Tides rise
With padded skies
And broken gates
A star's shining face
Sweet damnation
Get your hands off my scars
Silent shadows
Swollen wreckage
Melancholy records
Surrounded by a deepened black hole sea
My decay consuming me

    Your headspace needs room for operation. You can pick and fold as much as you like. The truth remains the same.

    A fantastic commentary of inner torment. I can relate to this on so many levels. Dark metaphor and internal discontent abound. Great read.
