Tell me there's more than this
Because *** I feel so stuck now.
The stars are bright
Then they dim in the night
Gift me with those eyes
Eyes that seek a purpose.
Life shouldn't be being stuck
In the frames of decisions and consciousness.
This isn't it. This isn't what I wanted.
Let me choose my own heaven and ****.
Let me dig my own grave.
Because these ruts and paths to nowhere are all I got.
And is nothing all it's chalked up to be?
You got me wondering
These nights where I stay in the hidden place.
Or those days infinity found us.
Just remember those days you say.
The truth is I can't remember one particular thing about them.
Try to grasp onto any fleeting feelings.
I'm trying to catch a ghost.
Let these feelings wash over me.
Let me bask in my glory
Or frown in my unhappiness
And yet I silently scream.
Unable to express what I feel
Because the people who need to hear are deaf to me
And try as I might nothing can change a heart that's set in stone

Once upon a time
There lived a king and queen.
The king was lively and kind
The queen in all her beauty was gracious and refined
Yet were things perfect at the palace.
Beneath it's exterior unrest stirred
For under all his kind words was a scheming mind.
And his hospitality was hostility for those he deemed a threat
The queen was shallow
Her vivacity was corrupted by greed
Her **** for life itself knew no bounds
Was there ever a more perfect pair?

I thought we had wings;
Like a dangerous cocktail of angel and demon.
We were cast out of heaven
Fragile in our mortality
Now we are at the summit of our sorrows
Make haste!
Can we fly with no wings?
We're falling.

Maybe it's where my head's at
But I've been interpreting things weird.
Things are not as they seem.
The thoughts reappear and disappear
Not at will
Not at will
What does that mean?

My head's not where it's at
It's drowning in strange thoughts
Drowning drowning
Draining
then down the rabbit hole
We fall

***
You bruise my hips.
Lips tongue and skin collide.
Our skeletons dance together,
As the smoke of a cigarette
Clouds up the room.
Secrets between lovers
Shall never die.

You say you're a ***
an Adonis some might say
Why then do you lie in multicolor?
Kiss me, touch me, **** me,
All you ever did was hurt me
If you're a ***
Why then did you decide to curse this mortal?

You're my savior.
you never made any promises,
And yet I loved you.
Crazy, insane and maniacal,
The mad hatter has nothing on you.
Twisted lies and games you'd play,
And I'm the perfect liar.
Denying everything that felt wrong.
Everything feels right,
When you tempt me with dark desires beyond my wildest dreams.
But nothing ever is as it seems.
