Beyond My Lips

Up came an epiphany of grandeur in the soliloquy of my demise

Short lived after the past of bad blood presented its compromise

It spoke so sweetly while bearing the bad news

Like the sting of pleasure from the alcoholic sipping the booze

The demons in my head once arrested during a traffic stop

But now loose and on the run back to the top

Blood boils cold with my head to some doomsday prophecy

Alone inside finding comfort there’s nothing left of me

No song to sing

No pain to bring

No yesterday

No come what may

Fallen short of glory, left to the penance of the plain

Gone the extra mile to reach a face with no name

Eluding is the chance to avoid the cataclysm riding in on the storm

Embracing the darkness left in the broken promise of its truest form

It’s the plundering of loneliness during the madness of this eclipse

Though I speak into the silence, not a word is heard beyond my lips

The Aftermath

talented tongues have kept me waiting on truth that was stuffed in a biodegradable farce

so many of us wading in time, keeping a distance, now that love is preciously sparse

changed my order just to keep up with time remembering the night that we laid

I am just starting to feel my heart again after the years of devastation that I paid

broken by reality and how you couldn’t love us enough to give me a tomorrow

inundated by being misunderstood and hated by so many while grasping sorrow

an epic love of such proportion it took every piece of all the puzzles I had on the table

there is no fairytale ending, a love so great and a burning passion merely a fable

it makes me laugh, while watching the demons dance in nightmares I knew all along

condemned, damned and without you were the lyrics you would write to our song

sanity stolen by the eaters of the dead, yes the chosen few that speak on the walls

watching time rape the best of me as the sacred land within my heart falls
