Oh, how tears lovingly stain a page
like foreign lipstick on the collar of a shirt
The ink swirls, smudges words
And soothes heartbreak.

As the darkness closes in
creating goosebumps on my skin

Then I start to feel the fear
and let drop a single tear

I don't know what to think
It's a scary feeling
and I start to sink

Will anyone hear my helpless cries
Fearing the worst
I begin to close my eyes

Here is my heart
Dancing in your palm
Hold me like a breath
It won't last that long

I can smell the ocean
the saltiness in the air
carried by the breeze
rushing through my hair.

I can see the waves
running to meet the land
as I start to walk
with my toes squishing sand.

I can hear the birds
and every flying screech
as I enjoy
my day at the beach.

Once upon
a summer sun
A gruesome act
has begun

A father burdened
by the torment of life
sharpened the blade
of a kitchen knife

Stuck between
his morality

for his growing brutality

He led his children
straight to bed
with evil looming
right over his head

The little whispers
tingle in his ear
The growing dread
erupts into full blown fear

Fear for his children
and their small life
The whispers rising
along with the knife

His heart stained
By his destructive mind

His morals caught
in a thick bind

Not remembering
the right from the wrong

from room to room
as he soundlessly
moves along

His dark shadow
hovers overhead
right above
his children's bed

A shift in his mind
brings the knife down
The children now quiet
Their frozen faces
Lying on the ground

Wiping the dripping knife
Relieved for his children's life

And once he saw
what he had done

He buried them
the summer

She clasped death
tightly between her fingers
with soot in her lungs
and regret in her eyes

I seek revenge
of the deepest kind
It is the only thing
that consumes my mind
A wild feeling
overcomes all thought
Pouring out of the cracks
for the thing I sought
With a tight grip
losing control
drinking up revenge
sip after sip
the battle to fight
is taking its toll
Fury over mind
no time to make amends
I seek the deepest kind
