Degradation instilled within the boundaries of purpose,
miraculous memorization of rapturous thoughts.
Collapsed under shards of fanciful perceptions,
perplexing deterioration vanquish inward foes.
Dreams prolonged reverberate indignation.
I unequivocally capitulate to the exultation of self.

ᴊᴰᴍ Jul 2013
You are hidden on one side I am on fallen on the other
we could work together but we are about to fall
Push through the static noise listen for the crying siren
it doesn't have to be like this
a lamb killing a lion
A melody over an angry voice
it doesn't have to be like this at all

Weep for me
so God can hear my honest suffering
Speak for me
when I am gone and just a memory
We are held
together by absolutely nothing
In the end
we break our souls in two

Broken by greed but I still mourn
a sigh of relief I'm honestly torn
Yet I still believe there's another life for me
Asleep on a one way street
even after my soul is broken
Even after they scorch my dreams
for now I still breathe

You are fallen on one side I am on hidden on the other
we could work together yet pride can be the final call
It doesn't have to be like this
it doesn't have to be like this at all

Weep for me
under a tree on a rainy day
Walk with me
and be thankful we live and breathe
Talk with me
and get lost in conversation
Until we fall asleep
until we sleep permanently
I will be waiting
I will be waiting for you

Hold my head under a beautiful ocean
watch me struggle with the glorious view
Sorrow brings tremendous emotion
with pure devotion I think of you
But I am done with this life
and this life is done with me
When I'm gone may you weep
when I’m gone may you weep for me

Weep for me
so God can hear my honest suffering
Speak for me
when I am gone and just a memory
We are held
together by absolutely nothing
In the end
I will be waiting
In the end
I will weep for you

ᴊᴰᴍ Jun 2013
Some crave to sever a vein
and aim a red stream in the bathroom stall
There's no shame in a ruthless squabble
actions speak louder in a ****** brawl
Practice makes perfect when you write your name
with crimson color on your best friends wall

What goes up must break down
we're all gonna die eventually
Do you want to live forever?
What goes up must look down
with eyes of sincere empathy
Love is a baby strangled and drowned
then covered in lies for society

Love oh love how deaf and dumb
you are to the fact most people lie
After all is said and the betrayal done
I stand my ground as you take my life
I keep this promise safe and sound
no more furious tears to pry
a life of death and romance
I leave my thoughts then die

To those who circle back around
and still I speak so honestly
Heavy is the humble crown
there's no time for arguing
I work best when feeling down
and in the end you're just like me
What goes up must come down
death and romance pound for pound
you made the cut I made the sound
love becomes the enemy

ᴊᴰᴍ Nov 2020
Gagged and bound inside my thoughts,
jagged shards of melancholy rage.
Frustration strangles pent-up chaos,
I plunge a dagger into my face.
Ripping fabric caught on thorns,
I drag across my paper waist.
I turn the key inside my flesh,
and puke out my creative angst.

ᴊᴰᴍ Oct 2020
Want not yet wonder
fragments of bewilderment.
Irreversibly vulnerable,
suffocate the heartstring noose.
Longing for a moment,
isolation ravages apathetic hope.
A story untouched yet blemished,
melancholy choking fallacious toil.
Alone in a crowded room,
each breath composed,
ephemeral.

ᴊᴰᴍ May 2020
Deep asleep my heart stops beating,
why am I here this is a mistake.
Lost in darkness my skin is freezing,
I fell asleep but did I wake?
I do remember a porcelain plate,
I held a cup I ate and drank,
Hemlock soup with a Death Cap steak,
Oleander tea with a Ricin cake,
poisonous dreams betrayal and scheming,
Was it dinner that sealed my fate?

Looking down I am not breathing
I feel no sorrow if it ends today.
I see her face but she's not speaking,
as I drift into the dark decay

ᴊᴰᴍ May 2020
Dark clouds crackle and shutter
a celestial throne splits the sky
Man cowers from the churning vortex
a monstrosity covered in a million eyes
Wheels spinning around a golden altar
crushing bone, crumbling stone
A symbol of justice begets a reckoning
eagle, ox, lion, man
prostrate before the ethereal King

Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely?
Do you know you are not the only one alone
as your blood flows down the drain.

You live your life the only life you are given
I understand this aching pain you are feeling
you are not alone as you face the darkening day
I am here to stay

Look in the mirror at the blade you are holding,
and what you chose as your goodbye clothing,
does the throbbing make the pain go away?
As you float away.

Down the drain, you will bleed
I will chase down your memories.

Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely?
Do you know you are not the only one alone
as your blood flows down the drain.
