The Heart is an Ocean
Filled with deep and strong emotions

The deeper down within you dive
The longer you have to return.

No lens can provide
How we truly feel inside.

Like paint falling upon a piece of paper,
from a distance, unclear like some vague vapor,

Like a bright vibrant fire within us all
Able to burn a forest of delusion to see our true call.

Like the Smoke within us all, grey and dark
Rises out of the mouth and everyone knows you have the spark.

Like The Power of the Circle, the ring, the commitment of power
Face your problems, face them and tower.

Like what i did, and now I'm free.
Swimming in the water of freedom, swimming within the sea

Its a blessing and a curse to feel everything so very deeply.

******* your blood, I desire
It hurts more than fire
The haunting sounds you hear prior
I am a horrible flyer

Observing your every move while I stalk
Notifications arise when I knock
Children of the night I mock
However, I don’t acquire a clock

Once I bite, no turning back
You don’t even know if I attack
Death is upon me with one smack
Depressing, because you would have been a delightful snack.

inspiration from/ inspired by :/ Wrote this while with family - my brother & dad visiting for the season.

Just like a raindrop
I was born to fall
Just like a tough guy I am
I will try and show them all

Never knew love or hate
Only pain the past drugs create
hitting up like flint and steel
Cannot fathom if anything is real

Darkness creeps in, paranoia begins
When lights go out I face my demons
I hear the loud echoing screams
To this day I wish they would stop visiting my dreams

Evil is winning it’s wearing the crown
It’s all smoke and mirrors until they break down
But by then your already slaves
Just another toy with which he plays

Silent visions of past mistakes
Let us see what this new day makes
