Repetition
Draws comfort
No matter
How destructive

A mission
Of sabotage
Aimed to provoke
And disrupt
What's left of conscience

The fixated need
To reach
The silence
But
The guilt of obtaining
Absolutely nothing
Of importance

The complete
Waste
Of
Something
Relevant

I try
To break loose
Free
Cut the thoughts
And forget
The dread

But the head
Attached
Stays to spine
As eyes
Turn bitter
And resent
The light

The warmth
I seek
I can never find

The loss
I need
The chase
Brings life

You told me
To breathe
While ever so
Gracefully
Smothering me
In cellophane

Blood rushing
To brain
The room spins
Greys
Dim
Into charcoal black

The attack
Premeditated
I even came
And sat
While knowing
All about
Your little plan

You see
Still and quiet
Wins the game

The race
Was never present

The prize
Is
The time
Spent
Feeling
The
Full
Of alive

And alive
Has only
Kisses my eyes
While
I'm convinced
That I'm in the midst
Of dying

I lost
The
Lines

But

I found
The
Meaning
Behind the gift
Of flight

Flash flood
Of pictures
Watering down
My mind

Everything
Is spreading
And taking root
Inside

This sickness
Leads to bleeding
Seeping
Through
The lines

And all hope
Ever handed
Was remind
The self
Of lies

The truth
Can be quite
Brutal

But the brutal
Brings
The true

The true can kill
The will
Of man
Can kill
The "I"
Of "you"

But when
You're finally broken

You can begin
To build
Anew

And once you drop
And hit the ground
You then learn
To make it through

The lessons
Taught
By loss
Are the ones
That bring the light

And although
It pains me to admit
I accomplish most
Restrained
By fright

The fear is flashing
Behind your eyes
You brave the pain
Words form
You smile
Wide

Blood
Bubbling
Reddened daze

I can't help
But lock my gaze

On your bruised
And bleeding
Lips

The pictures
Replay
In
Head

You remind
Me of
The bitter past

Of what it is
To face the end

I will never judge
Nor forget

Of the lessons taught
And the feelings
Felt

The sweetness
Of the breeze
Serenades
My weary
Frame

Gazing at
The trees
The rustling
Of the leaves
Speak
My name

I hear
Them
Call
For
Peace

To
Put
An end
To shame

To pick apart
Build anew
And
Start back up
Again

The draft
Was never kind

And the day
Was never friend

It's not until
I killed the noise
That I can hear
And stand
The wind

Angel
Angel
Please come
For me

Inject
Your light
Inside
My veins

Shield the night
And guide
The way

Take my sin
And lose
The shame

Angel angel
With
Skin
Of man

With eyes of glass
And hands of sand

With words
Of gold
And thoughts
Of steel

With a heart
Of dread
But
Touch
That heals

You were
Never
Safe
But
You were
Always
Real

Angel angel
I do confess
You take my mind
And I need you
Bad

Instill new life
In the form
Of death

Let us
Kill
The mind
To break
The binds
Of flesh

3 AM
Reminds me of hands
Held
In cold embraces
Of lines drawn
Across the glass

Of cold eyes
And pungent
Sorrow
And how hard
It was to stand

You always did
Restrain me
But I bloomed
Within
The vice

You always did
Persuade me
But I heard truth
Between
The lies

You might
Have been a user
But to me
That was okay
I might have been
A taker
And I confess
I fell in love
With what you bring

You brought a sense
Of nothing
Of freedom
In the skin
Of pain
For pain
Of death for life
You showed me
How to thrive
Within the stain

You made me
Feel disgusting
But you made me
Come undone
From which
I learned
To build again
And found myself
In
Up
