I take my family photo albums And pin those ghosts down to the walls I keep running to my past trying my best to bring it back to life always thinking “there’s a real life haunting.” when I see myself any younger than 19 I take my family photo albums And try to pin down your love as if I’ll be able to see the warning signs if it’s been written on the walls I keep running back to my past like an old wives tale half told truths slipping through hands and passing from mouth to mouth Landing on my dinner plate filling it all the way up I take my family photo albums and wonder “why is it?” I do not recognize who is staring back I keep running back to my past trying to find out everything about who I am
- I've been trying to find clues about who hid me away
they dance on the edge of nearly unperceived breezes the sighs of dead men's final breath that follow me to the edge of the thickets many lay at the feet of those who wish to taste death but not know it brothers in arms who cross from the horrors often placed upon them by man into a swath of light that holds no measure of time or space or pain they are free to walk from the remnants that linger in living consciousness yet remain tied to the moment of their crossing the essence of their love for kindred souls
You’re haunting me Rattling my bones with such a sweet song The melody is setting my spine in a way that causes my teeth to ache It’s the first taste of devastating paired with final notes of irreparable
I have your memory Buried underneath my bed slipped between folded up t-***** and double knotted into the laces of my doc martins it skips out mid way through each replay I run through It’s gonna end up driving me mad if I let it
You’re haunting me Yet here I am trying to exorcize my past sinking my memories of you right back into your dusted bones I have you rolling over in your grave Assured in your afterlife this secret and I would go quietly into the night Only I came back screaming
(my knuckles are skinned to the bone) (but I will keep fighting. I will keep fighting)
I hear you singing in victory Can you hear me Answering back

Awaken me, take away my confusion and pain Shine a light through me Echoes of angels surrounding me in an ethereal world of never ending bliss Golden gates that behold behind them a bright and beautiful place which only those who truly know will see Souls of familiar beings I have loved and adored embracing me with a smile I return the same smile down to those I know who still remain on earth I will wait to see you again And I cannot wait to reunite with you, my friend
The elegance of an exquisite diamond, Is priceless for the one who fathoms the price of the afterlife. The ignorant will abandon everything except a thousand diamonds. The wise will forsake everything except the dignified path of Allah.
