Adieu

AdieuAs useful as a rotten egg.A subservient verbal punching bag.Tonight we said goodbye for good.Dishonesty and fright withstood.No more tears during dazzling nights.No making up after epic fights.In the dark, I see just who I am:a clown, padding, a...

Bullet-in

Bullet-inLike a bird without its cage.Like a champ without its rage.All your dreams that won't come true.Little gods without a clue.Their passion might stop you.Their poison might drop you.An artificial source.Your eyes start endless wars.Waiting for...

Perfectly ImperfectYou tell me that you're no good.I tell you that you're perfect.We compromise,roll the dice,and live onbelow the fallboard,somewhere in the middle.Somewherewhere we can balanceon life's imperfection-chord.

Day-mares and Night-dreamsIf only my day-marescould be night-dreams.I could simply walk away,open my eyes,and the fear would fade away,but the day,unlike the night,always seems to have its way.Why must the sun make me blind?Why must I drown in the ra...

My StoryMy story always ends the same.In the end, I'm just a name.A player on the bench,a carcass's rotting stench.The angel on the ground.A scream without a sound.My life has always beenabout enemies from within.Grinafter grin,after grin.The day is...

LayerDon't judge a book by its cover.For example, happiness and anger are opposites.An outburst of anger or laughter won't tell you anything about a person.What happens in between?Knowing why and how these outbursts are activated is what makes people...

FlyWherever you are,if you're lost,be a wandering star.Hurl through galaxiesthat no one has yet flown across.Breakthrough alternate universes,door to door.Don't stop burning up life's fuel;that's what fuel is for.You are unstoppable;time is merely cr...
