Somewhere the Moon goes to speak with a Star
That Star comes from a galaxy not like our own
To the Moon, says the Star, "I want to go that far"
To the Star says the Moon, "But there, I, all alone"
Then the Moon faced the Sun, and the planets all around
"I'm never alone here", says the Moon, "No matter where I go"
The Star shimmered, "That's why I'm here" he felt so proud
"Because now that I am here, with you, i have somebody i know"
The two giggled, and the Earth saw them together
"Hello North, hello Moon", the Earth said quietly
"Hello Earth", they both said joyfully
Together they glanced forward, "aeternum", Earth said somberly
And afar, the Black Hole said longingly, "Deus tecum est" gingerly


/The Sun burned brightly in a distance, droning an endless tone
Warm the heatless abyss around it for all to know, it, too, exists.

Withering Smoke Dream
EmperorMoth Jul 28
Such a pleasantry to go to town
Like a lullaby, it's going down
And all their sentences, six months of hell
Like taking a smoke trip with ringing bells
oh
a withering smoke dream
Can't know what it means
A lack of some clarity
Nothing's what it seems
so
Falling through a smoke cloud
The racing singing drowns out
A somber phased reality
An endless galaxy

A and B
EmperorMoth Jul 22
He's beautiful.
A cultural salad bowl.
As he saunters the halls lined with the eyes of public youth,
he finds himself directly in front of another boy.

A boy with the skin of snow, tinted with a pink blush.
Rugged, broken, a boy who has seen the world falter in front of him.
The boy of snow glares at the boy of culture.
He strikes him down, lacking hesitation.
A mysterious rage possessed the boy of snow...why was he so angry?

The boy of culture gazed up at the boy of snow,
aware of his own strength and weapons,
yet he took the choice to not entertain him.
He got up, and walked away, one piercing gaze, and vanished within the crowd of youth.

The boy of snow, caught by the glare of the boy of culture.
A piercing stop in time...exhilarating.
Why did he let him go?
He didn't seem afraid at all, if anything, he wanted him to follow.

This is the start of a twisted love story.

The Absence of Opium
EmperorMoth Jul 22
The addiction to a drug that helps you escape the gaping hells of reality; *****...
down into the tunnel of withdrawal
Desiring more
An endless cycle of want
Just like ***
Like virginity taunts
And as you suffer deeper into the tunnel
A pondering poet sinks deeper
Begging for mercy for his sins
And as he loses himself in the beast that sinks its teeth
He finds himself looking at life with a different lens

Bite me

were the words that i cast from my mouth, sinking the mental teeth of my rage within the ties that knot me and my enemy

I no longer will allow you to keep me captive
tortured
endlessly musing you

I hold my head, circling my temples

every single day
for months and months
why you
why must it be you

Pacing my minds pavement, tracking down my ever speeding train of thought

I want you gone, out of this becoming

Silenced from this world and banned from it's premises
A force of corruption in lust with my demise
Evil in choice but so meek in the human eye

I challenge your character
We are just beginning

Ponder with Mary II
EmperorMoth Jul 14
They come with gifts, but a blade is clenched behind their backs to stab ours.

These beings are of an absence of Good, corroded by the many great evils ruled by the right hand of humanity's ultimate end.
6 hot seasons 11 cool, the song of dissolution will echo across the eye of life. This will be the start of His rebecoming.

Peacemakers, disguised behind a faux mission statement will gain majority trust and "coexist" within the sixteen circles of humanity. Rewarded the trust of every tribe and every nation, these beings will bring about fates epilogue, casting the seven screams of chaos

1000 year order has been set into reality already and is near its finish. Our temporary existence will be amplified into the orbit of eternity.
Six signs, one divinity

Fire

Mass Chaos
Pollution

Ponderance with Mary
EmperorMoth Jul 14
Rested petals on the pondering pond, rippling many waves anew,
As the sun peels back the color of the pond, and the heat did a dance,
Within the pond, a new restoration calms the mind of mother nature.

Sending wind into the world, a breath of air branching all around, the flowers mingle and send away their children, time blesses the world with the golden hour.

In charge of the towering army of many, the stallion leads the family of lions. Zebras, elephants, they all came with fury, towards the platinum steed, the amplifier of the sun.

Human kind, constructs of complexity, an alien race formed of the gaping surplex within the eye of the universe, aligned along the seven suns and eleven moons, forming a path into the embodiment of sin, rejection of the Almigonium, Omni Imperium.

Path paved on the poor pervasion of pleasure, and now we exist, many horrors and miracles. Soon, solidified in the many signs of Almigo omni, inscribed in the all truth, the end

Into the f o r e s t, I shall go

To lose my m i n d and find my soul

A pattern for patter, rain k i s s e s the ground

A m u s i c a l around me of nature's sound

The d e e p e r I'm in, the more I shall find

A party of c o l o r s of all of the kind

A w o r l d without end, my mind I will send

Into the forest, where my s o u l has been

Contempt; Intrusive
EmperorMoth Jun 27
Painful is the feeling I experience when I hear the songs you left me with.

I heard someone laugh the same laugh that you did...and I felt my heart sink.

I often ponder you, wondering why I ponder you, but to no avail, I've yet to gain that answer.

It's the bite of bitter experience that I sink before; what did I do to need to go through such trivial...*******?

That's a repetitive thought that dances through my mind.

I sometimes wonder if I am blind, or if maybe I've gone crazy, but lately, I feel like I've been simply trying to decode this puzzle our scenario has placed on my heart.

I'm no longer looking for closure; it was never promised. I am looking for detachment, because I feel less human the more I'm reminded of your existence.

I hope, somehow, this is something I will laugh at in the future.

Grim Is the Burden
EmperorMoth Jun 27
In the silence, behind the darkened void, I still; alone.

Even the man with the least layers can be served the heaviest burden.
Willow may the tears stream, a puddle for every pound of pressure. The world is weakened by the seams that men produced and sewn it in.
A catalyst formed to start the war within the men who bore the fate, a fate formed from existing here, a tragic tale that crept to take.
A star-bound mind filled full of worlds, corrupted by the heart of I, the human soul; a dogged gift.
A will to live until complete.
The burden is a punishment, i'd never dare to wish nor seek.

Malum
EmperorMoth Jun 26
Imagine you've cut a cake five or six times, each slice having the same color, however, a different shade.

Now replace the cake with sides of oneself.
Now Replace oneself with Me; I am that cake.

The me that is of a higher mind, which I consider my conscious.
I have a side of me that only manifests when drunk.
A side of me that only manifests when high.
The me who is sober.
The me that represents my thinking.
And then there is him, Malum.

The darkest slice of the cake. He lurks, spectating, snickering...planning.
He's the voice in my head that wishes I were dead...so that he could swallow my vessel and turn it into his own.

He and I have a contract; I am to control and maintain my body, so long as I never been put into a full-on life-or-death position, or I am not mentally sacrificial.

I've witnessed potential realities in which he had control...and it's terrifying.

I hope he never gets out.
I am not afraid to fight, because I fear failure; I am afraid of Malum and what he will do. He is not human...and he definitely doesn't fight for humanity.

He is the me that wanted the world to burn...and he still does. He has no empathy, no sympathy, and he craves destruction. He's calculated, analytical, and he lacks love. He is pure evil...and he is waiting.

He is waiting for me to die.
So that he can swallow me alive, and turn the world upside down.
EmperorMoth Jun 2
Settle,
I want you to calm down
As there are things to provoke you

Still,
No need to turn blue
You're enough as is

my,
How passionate you are
What a beauty, a star

Soft-spoken,
To speak in a whisper
I hear your melodies

Heart,
Please don't fall into the temptations
They want to see you dead

Question, Butterfly;
How does it feel to be seen as better,
Because you are the prettier family member,
I'm pretty,
Because you're delicate,
I'm delicate,
Because you're a symbol,
I have meaning,
Tell me, how do you feel,
Looking down on me...

I will not be used as a symbol of the misunderstood,
Treated like a monster because I am from the hood,
When I, too, had a dream that the world changed,
Where the street was safe for everyone because we were together,
No one was hungry, because the food didn't go to waste,
And there was less stress because we slowed down our pace,
I dreamed of a world were we progress,
Hatred is called out, challenged, defeated, history wasn't repeated,
The future wasn't a dream, but the present,
Thankful for the day we have, the day we will have.
No longer feeling entitled to anything, but humble and grateful,
I accept the world for what it is, but it must progress,
For if it is to be a world I desire to live in, it must change,
It will change,
I will see to it that it does, so long as I live on it.
And my change is for progression.
We will move forward,
We will live,
In the name of love,
In the light of peace,
I am determined.

Year of The Fallen
EmperorMoth Jun 2
Stones; collected by the lonely,
Gripped, forgotten, until they're one with their bodies,
Held with regret, hoping that their actions reset time,
Rewind; a pause in time set into motion when they're blind,
Kindly following their fate, toward, in line,
No crime like living accordingly to what was given to you,
Lacking the resources to live, a limitation unacceptable,
Surging little fires everywhere, losing control,
Capsizing that within the power, how do you feel?
How does it feel to feel out of control,
Linking all wrongdoing to the under controlled,
Bold; making out the obvious in pain the villain,
Smoke rising, the war isn't over, because you've yet to see it,
This wasn't meant to be a war, nor an argument, but a call out,
We challenge the monsters that stand up when we've fallen;
We will sing till you repeat our words subconsciously,
And once you realize what you've done,
It'll only be a matter of time when the silly game you made,
It's a game that you lost, and it's a game that we have won.
We are undefeated. Determination inevitably makes us winners.

Confined
EmperorMoth May 22
They were opened,
Revealing a world in constant motion,
Colored and coated with this commotion,
Gripped and grabbed by the chosen,
Opened, but blinded,
Taken and tried, ignited,
A time before, I didn't mind it,
But now I mind it

I was better together and intact,
But now I wonder if I have even my own back,
Always feeling so stuck in this reality,
Confined, is this how it's supposed to be?

Feels like a day that lasts forever,
Losing time, guess erase the never,
Where did my mind go, lost my sanity,
Could I do anything to finally be free?

Could it be any better, I always ponder,
Maybe this is a test disguised as a taunter,
I feel it's getting harder to clearly even see,
Feelings confined in things that used to be normal to me...
Ever just feel stuck in reality, as if all options were thrown out of the window, leaving you trapped in your own mind...?

Curiosity
EmperorMoth May 21
Curiosity is an oddity
To desire to know
A gift and a curse
One may willingly bestow
And to touch the knowledge of death
May it's satisfaction bring about life
May no mind in love with knowledge
Be killed off, in the name of strife
Curiosity, a game to behold as true
Authentic in its nature
But to be sure, that's not entirely true
Like a tree, like love, it has many branches
As each branch forms a full tree
Curiosity could be built on fear
Or the lust to unravel the mystery
And not always the one who is curious satisfied
Maybe they come out taller than they once were
A gem in itself, a miracle
Allowed a story untold before to occur
EmperorMoth May 21
Quiet, he watches
And silently, he sings with the wind
As the sun kisses his face, sprawled over the comfort of a chair
What is it he's thinking
Not much crosses his mind these days
It may be my doing, but let him live
My familiar, protecting me softly
What a wonder, a creature you are
As I observe you, from a distance
I wonder, what is it that you see

Caged Raven
EmperorMoth May 21
Clipped by the cage you're confined in,
Dark and compliant, a conflicted life of air,
All faces remembered, those who are in debt to the raven's snare,
Inspired by shadows that lurk in the sun, the ones with many sins,
You have a story to tell, but one mustn't dwell,
You will sing your family's name, let it echo like a bell,

Caged raven...what is it you think?
EmperorMoth May 14
I've been thinking about you
Casually conversating about to-dos
Flashing images serenading me
You're a friend I wish I could see
But you only sing in my head
Out in the world, I'm never said
So I ponder alone, in a drugged-out dread
Laughing in a corner with my only friend
As the world falls over, and so does my bed
I'm in my head with my only begotten friend.

It's the journey within that cracks open the shell without
Splitting open a sealed perfection only meant to be an accessory
More than that, it now became living art, a walking melody
But little it knows the bigger it's meaning, it picks at it's every crack
So miserable, so blinded, hard to keep something so broken intact
Walking mayhem, it blames the world, a shattered ID running amok
How must it ever see its beauty if it destroys the witnesses that look
A classical tell of a an art piece that made its own price
When if it accepted it's flawed, it would have been that, but twice
Now It knows not what it should, but what it assumes the world is
Forever trapped in its head, a place for the dead, art corpse-fed
And until there's nothing to destroy, it'll continue but then
It will see what a beautiful catastrophe it's made In the end.
Art that made art, painted with the anger of a misunderstanding
Art can't see that it's art, so it made art until it saw what it tore apart...

Empath
EmperorMoth Apr 28
I feel the words you cast aloud
A shank you made, crafted from mind
How bitter the ailment of one's self-hatred
Duel-bladed this act, a sacrifice
I wish you felt this pain for you
The love I wish you reflected
But I can only see you bruise
Your soul once knew you respected
Now as I watch you maim yourself
I pray your wounds erased away
May you become the one who loves
Even when all says dissipate.

O
EmperorMoth Apr 28
O
I'm sorry.

You'd like to be evil...

You want to hurt people.

You think it's fun.

Evil people get to have all the fun...?

You want power.

You want control.




...You're broken. A record that can be read as clear as day.
You don't know true evil.
If you'd like an example, all you'd have to do is ask.


You're afraid to be simple...
But you're nothing but simple.
And that's ok.

Stop trying so hard to be alien for ***** sake.
You're destroying yourself...and that will only hurt you and those you love.


You need to be dismantled, so that you can be built back up...and stronger.

Your foundation is built on resentment. Destruction.
Bitterness.
You call the darkness your friend. But the darkness wants to eat you, and digest you. You're afraid of the light.

What would we see if it was shining on you?
Simple, a broken art piece.

But that's ok. That's enough. You are good enough as that. We all are broken art pieces. And we all are unique, but ironically not any better than anyone else

So accept yourself. I'm right here with you. Always have been, even if you can't see me. And I will be there with you, to build you up. You deserve a friend who will be there for the better you. We all do, when we're ready to accept them.

Now wake up, pat your knees, do a stretch. Let's do this adventure, but together.

I need a friend, and I believe you're more than enough.
To the ashen boy.
From a little insignificant peppered snow moth.

Haunted
EmperorMoth Apr 28
He never left my mind
Though I see a different light
Distorted this time
It's hard to pick out what's the sight
A person or a monster
Such a mystery he is
But I want him next to me
For regardless that's how he exists
Like a brother who has died
He somehow is dear to me
Even when he kind of tried
To rip my soul away from me
Such as he has lost his heart
He still isn't that apart
For he's here, I wonder if I'm there
Haunted me
But here I am rewriting thoughts
Though my mind is not the same
Less distraught and now I'm dead
At least now my heart is tamed
I just feel like he is here
yet I don't feel I am there
kind of feel a bit insane
but is that the trick of the game
Haunted soul, I feel I am
Rocking, shifting, am I ******
What did happen to little old me
Haunted soul hunted by grief

BAM
EmperorMoth Apr 28
BAM
Bee stings never feel sweet
To die to protect, what an unfortunate ending
So important, it's fragile little life
So feared, adored, but met with endless strife
Like an ant on the floor, left alone, like a chore
As a group, tortured wars, but important, although ignored
Then the moth, so restless, always flying so obsessed
Treated poorly, but has meaning, all of them with such a wish

Let them live,
Let them be,
Pollinate, we need three,
All are worthy,
We will see,
Let them be,
Let them free

Ever felt it?
That abomination in the back of your chest?
The warm, subtle, frenzy; a play on insanity?
Right there, touch it, right in the center.
Not the heart...but close.
Hidden behind the apocalypse animated in your mind.

Pressure, in the brain.
Feel a little insane.
Will it go away?
Can it even be tamed?

Lost in the dark,
Swimming with sharks,
Jabbed by enough,
Jagged and rough,

I'm just meshuga,
Worried by could'ves'
Explosive conceptions
Smoke choked by hookas

Tell me I'm ready
Flying to freedom
Afloat and steady
Reaching for kingdoms

I'm falling forward
Nose-diving toward
Pavement-made jungles
Vision is bordered

Raining disaster
Coming down faster
Searing with laughter
End is the capture

To resolve this cancer oh

Standing beside our room
I keep on seeing you
I feel like I'm high on a dream
A nightmare that's coming true
It's like it was all just a plan
A plan that I'm just drowning in oh
why won't
just won't you
come on just
become my

Plastic wrapped, silver fabricate,
Pretending i'm alright, but fearing
So much I can't take
Losing my oh my mind

I feel that I just might die
Isn't that l o v e l y...

Why won't you
Just will you
Come on i can't breathe

Oh lord why why I

To Those Who Ponder
EmperorMoth Feb 12
To those who ponder,

Tell me, is it for your own satisfaction?
Unraveling a neverending clip of thoughts and processing,
Revealing the clarity and full picture of a puzzle never-ceasing?
Or are you simply pretentious?

Locked behind this image,
Playing Solomon; I only wave my tongue to those I deem "deep",
Is this how you pay your attention?
Or do you simply catch on to those YOU relate to?

Sometimes it's easier to tell who is more deserving and who you would rather lend your voice to.

You see, I am not a poet. I don't consider myself such. I am a ponderer who expresses myself best through text, somehow.

So, to those who ponder,

What is your intention?
Do you care to mention?

Make Me Believe

I'll fall backward off of a cliff...
.
.

As I do it, the lucid light of the warm and welcoming sun will reach down to grab me,
It'll attempt to save me...
.
.
.
But it can only make me cry.
-
As I fall, as the wind surrounds my body, making way for my rest...
.
.
.
As I do this, within the ethereal plane, there is something that tries to push me back up,
It'll attempt to keep me up high...
.
.
.
But it can only make me smile.
-
As I flourish in my faith...that something will make me believe...that all of it was worth something
That I didn't waste my tears...
my smiles...
my care...
my hope...
That it wasn't all meaningless...
.
.
.
Something finally does it...
-
As I fell down waiting to hit the ground, I heard a sound that shook my soul and made me feel something truly profound.
-
A colossal energy more powerful than a witches fury sent the life around me in a hurry...and caused the world to save me.
-
A light knocked on my eyes and caused me to cry, because I couldn't figure out why the hell would anything try to bring me back to life...
-
When I was able to find my way to see, I couldn't believe everything I was able to see and I could finally breathe....
-
As though none of that ever happened
I was back on the cliff
I was brought back...
Alive.

Moon and Son
EmperorMoth Feb 10
I'm just a boy in a sea full of stars
Wishing that I could share what spans wide and so far
In this litten abyss going farther than mars
It's a wonder-lit-land that's where our spirits are

And you're just a boy, just like little ole me
Wanting something so close, full of love but believe
That this story will stream farther than we can see,
Cause it's you and it's me and my love, we're a team

That goes on and on
Like the universe
We go further, stronger when we are immersed
This is our union, united in love
We're ourselves with each other
Formed from two into one

Yes, I'm just a boy who was once one before
Who had no one to hold, I was me, just a bore
Then I found me my star still living in my heart
Came to life now you're here, caused a new beat to start

As I fill up again sharing life hand-in-hand with you
Holding me closely cause that is the plan
Where you build me on up and I same on to you
Come transformed and better, a journey for us two.

Sleep Paralysis
EmperorMoth Feb 9
If I held my breath every time I thought of you, I wonder if I'd die,
Set in pause, held there forever in my subconscious, lingering,
Parasite,
You're not what I fear.

I've lost my words to play the right song,
So instead I smile and I play along,
If for every time I wanted to scream, erasing you from my dreams...,
Would I drone in the background, neverending?

What's this that I cannot wipe away, ash and shadows, symbols of decay,
Ghosted by hope, I hope to one day forget all of you that lingers,

Because unless you come to me as a polar opposite of the one that broke me...
I'll never be able to remove the grip of your fingers.

I'm looking for a peace of mind, but you must go so that I find
And with your leave, it lifts a weight so I shall write something to

A tap of time stretched till this day
I pause your mind to live okay
I visit yours now taste the same
A kind of mad that leaves you gray
shake

Open doors til' they come off so I can walk through without a lost
These words I use encrypted too, please leave my mind, you just have to

For me and for you, you just have to...
Or make a move or I will have to.
Tap into yours and visit you and see your world so you will too, then you will know why I am here asking for you to care.

Potency pours into passion the moment one feels hope or threat.
The dead produces wisdom from the trails their lives left.
Even the wisest man must die, and all that die leave a trail to continue from.
To make a new trail is to open up opportunity, but to wander upon the same steps of the previous trail is to repeat history.

Story
EmperorMoth Jan 21
There's a story to be told
One with hidden treasure and gold
All you need as the keys to receive
Are some patience and humility...

There was a foundation set in motion to walk upon
Broken by the chains of a destructive bond
An insecure one and a soul as black as soot
Both broken and bruised by the world's cold heavy boot.

Once in a time, the two had met, a week in and war was set
They both saw it coming
But only one intended to leave it with something.

Fallen they were when the smoke finally fled
Soul shattered, the insecure, nearly dead
The darkened one made way with the fallen heart
For to ****** away hearts was how this dark being was fed.

Could it have been avoided, yes
But hope and desperation was what set this fight into motion
Many nights and many days have passed
But the insecure one's mind is frantic with commotion

One day the insecure grew into a new self,
One so much stronger and abundant in mental wealth
A heart that could forgive such a tragedy,
On a search to willingly promote that dark soul's better health.

Wherever this tale may venture to,
Hopefully, it's somewhere good and healthy too,
For if it prospers so too will a reason to hope,
As a heart with some form of hope, it is a soul, in any state, that can cope.

Sometimes i let the weight of the world crush me,
But i don't even have to hold it...



i've been in hell, have came back, and couldn't tell the difference,
but what i've learned, and what i've endured prepared me for the blessing i was going to inevitably have.

All I had to do was not give up.


So...don't give up. A blessing is on it's way.
Let's do this together.

Cerebrate
EmperorMoth Dec 2019
Open your eyes, love
Remove the debris from the corners
The sun is always up above
Get out of the fantasy
Erase those borders.


Be more selfless
More loving
More caring
More of what you wish was there when you felt your worse...

Because adding to fire won't save the forest.
And without the trees, we all suffocate.
Restrict the fire and even if we save one tree, we've won.
Just because you don't save as much as you would like
It doesn't mean that saving any less is pointless.


It's a matter of perspective.
Change the world,
But to do that, you'll have to open YOUR mind
One tree can bring many
And many trees can disappear by one flame


One will leave you empty
One will fill you with life

Pulling, gripping, 'til we're up, up, up, and on top,
Paused
Peering out at the world, gawking and gazing,
Vision reformed into the lens of a fishbowl,
Intensity
Sweat racing down our faces as our hearts patter more paces,
******
Yanked by the Earth, like lightning from the sky,
Why, oh, why, we yell with no tears to cry,
Falling
Exciting as it may be, terrifying, we fall, fall, fall,
Tantalizing
An ending to the torment, so close but so far from our fingertips,
Spun around and tossed, like a pinball to a jester, tricked, fooled,
Entertained
A little under the weather, we're getting kind of queasy,
Hoarse from all the screaming, some are kind of Weezy,
Calm
At the end of the rollercoaster, shock, pause, disheveled,
What a journey it is, what a wonder, fun, scary, hard, emotional,
End

It's a thrill
A rush
A feel
Down the tunnel
Touch the soul
Overdosing
Textured landslide
Coated novocaine
Crashing faster
falling
Wonderland
Pleasure
Living loosely
Chaos baby
Bold and tested
Here I come
Sweet
and
Ready
Make you numb

A Prince's Demise
EmperorMoth Dec 2019
Royalty, oh royalty, listen to my speech
Tell me how it feels to be so high up in your seat
Blessed with your beauty, though so empty from within
How'd you beat a game that only you would never win
Such a pretty prince placed so neatly on the board
A treasure piece, i hate to say, that I did once adore
So lost in your desire to control the perfect life
You'd break the other pawns, but to them, it was just the rife
I'd hate to have to tell you, but oh prince, woe, woe to you
Your reign of sorrow, so much demise, i am afraid, is due
Your soul has left you with a shell that won't have much to gain
Karma bites back, even you, my love, will drench under the rain.
You've taken a part of my heart...
And that means you can't truly lose...
But because I have heart left, it beats,
But i'll always know how I was used.

I can't get you out of my mind...
And yet I've already left yours...
I just want to be someone a good and mutual love could find
But i always get dropped like your unwanted chores...

Can't you see my smile, behind all of my bleeding
No wonder you find it wild, that it's tears that I am seeping
I've cause my own destruction, though I knew feelings were fatal

and now i'm here dying slowly
in a world so ******* hateful

I didn't ask to like you, no
I wanted to forget you, but instead, now i know

all these little unnecessities that I don't need to, so


here i am dying...alive...heart becoming hollow

Slowly withering, like a plant, gone by the tiniest winds blow
EmperorMoth Dec 2019
Ever since i met this world
I always found myself in trouble
stumbling over the bodies of the empty
and influenced by poison, seeing double
Someone wants to see my fall
And I find that some type of funny
Because I don't see that as a loss at all
Cause i'm the bee and I make the honey
See, I control what they can see
And I maneuver what they will not
I can play the game too
But I simply choose not to, no one's at fault

I can see myself winning
EmperorMoth Dec 2019
I haven't always been this lost
Playing cat and mouse in an amazon maze
Peeking through the leaves and all the moss
For a path outside of this confusion game
Holding gems and such to say i'm safe
From a broken heart and feeling disgraced
Cast a spell or two to mend my faith
Bending illusions to clean the waste
I can see myself winning tonight
And that kind of builds my confidence
No more smiles, i'm not a fool, alright,
Sudden transformation in an instance,
I can be victorious without a clue

Did someone crank up the gravity?
It's getting harder to smile...
Like my lips are being held down by weights.
Feeling as though I am being pressed into the Earth.
Crushed by this neverending game over...
It's becoming harder to smile.

Let alone, breathe.
EmperorMoth Nov 2019
Life began to feel like a game
the moment I realized the unending cycle
I'm born
I develop a passion
I adventure to fulfill it
I fail, no matter the path
I crumble
My heart dies
1UP
I'm revived
I'm reborn
I adventure to fulfill it...

there soon becomes a weight made of my record, losses piling up till i sink deep into the abyss...

A game in which you cannot win.

Hopefully, there is a twist.

A twist in which I learn that I don't win
That I am found, and fought for
That I am rescued and that a new adventure starts


A game in which my passion is to adventure not alone, but as a duo

Life
EmperorMoth Nov 2019
I've tripped on a pebble colored by the rain,
I've stumbled and fallen, but little there pain,
Continued my journey, not much thought I've gained,
Just caution is key, nothing really to blame,

Go walking and walking along the paved path,
Hope this time I won't trip and fall on my ***,
No trouble there was for me to form a laugh,
Sometimes a tumble can be more good than bad,

So Life, a game, where struggles will double through,
Though winning is simple, surprisingly true,
Just value the memories, let out your laughs,
Cause once the games over that will be your last,

Life, life, oh what a grand game,
Where knowing something and winning aren't the same,
Life, life, the tales it entrusts,
Be wary, or you might end up in the dust,

So now that you know a little about it,
I hope you have fun, or at least just a bit,
Cause no matter what, you are here, you must play,
And no one fully knows what's after either way.
what a year....it's been.

BonBon
EmperorMoth Nov 2019
When the sugar hits my mind
I lose the sense to make sense
Complicated caffeinated composure
Crafted by this new exposure
Is it me that I am seeing
Running so fast through the hour
Elevated so high up
On this rush-built tower
But then there is a crash
And when it crashes it crumbles
And I fall as fast as I flew
What a rollercoaster sugar is

Starborne
EmperorMoth Nov 2019
Brought from Heaven
Made from a spell
Summon an angel
Ring the honey-bell
Fall from the sky
Wish upon the star
Here I come, my love
I'm closer than I am far
See that shimmering
Reach out to grasp it
Cause it's me smiling
Something you won't resist
Bring out a miracle
Enjoy the fortune
Feel the serenity
Let me sing you a love tune

Switch
EmperorMoth Nov 2019
I'll put my heart in the freezer,
Turn my brain onto autopilot,
Go on a cruise starting this winter,
And finally, mingle solo where it's dark and quiet
I'll become so gray, that I look less like a human,
And I'll lose that life I was so full of,
Hollow out like a pumpkin,
Become one with this pitiful world lacking love.
I'll blend right in, no need to be me,
Close these eyes that let me see so well,
The ones that led me to feel so crazy,
And I'll finally have that switch to be who I'm fated to be,
I'll be just as dead on the outside as my heart feels from my inside,
No hope, color, and any of that stuff I used to have; no more glee.

Sometimes pain can be really funny,
Especially when you saw it coming,
You had the chance to dodge the gun, but stood like a deer, shot dead
But what's the funniest is that you never really die,
Stuck on an endless repeat of the same journey,
But it becomes less than surprising,
And you wonder if you can ever really beat it,
But that's why it's so funny,
You have the knowledge, but that's the theme of fate,
No matter how much you know, you'll never really win,
All you can do is accept that you're out of control,
And then maybe, maybe it'll end.
