Surrounded by dead memories
watched the world decay
searching for remedies
while you played it your way
Crimson webs of hate
woven inside these veins
a desire to satiate
a life that you feign
a distant drummer plays on repeat
a tune only you can hear
she strikes a melody oh so sweet
how much more can you endure
Another day rises,
another night fades
enveloped in disguises
trapped inside your maze
And yet here you are,
crawling in my mind
The clown of fear
with memories that bind
He was a leper with a dream ,
Of whores and harlots ,
In a distant realm..
He had plans of the good life ,
Of bright lights and big cities,
The world at the edge of his knife..
He was queer , yet opiniated ,
Divided by his demons ,
A somber heretic..
He dreamt all day , of wants and needs ,
Never moved a muscle ,
An empty soul with nothing to feed ,
And he hopes for more ,
A stranger in a strange land..
Lost and washed ashore..
And nothing was left to hurt ,
A broken whisper ,
Building his empire of dirt..
From the shards of a dream ,
To the twist of his fantasy ,
God smoking a sunbeam ,
To him , was reality.
I saw her smile as I woke up today
She whispered in my ear “let’s run away”
I told her that we had no place to go..
She said “hold my hand while we run through the snow”..
I held her hand , as I closed in,
Her brown eyes , my rough skin..
She held her breath as our lips caressed..
Feelings that we could never suppress..
She had her demons , I had my hell..
She always had a story to tell..
On and on , her words mesmerized..
Her every syllable left me paralyzed..
As and when , then and now ,
The questions , the answers , the what and the how..
The castle of glass had begun to crack..
The blue skies were slowly turning black..
Her words spoke of love , her eyes of misery..
Her whispers faded , they weren’t meant for me..
Somewhere , somehow , we both knew..
the time had arrived , to bid adieu..
So for one last time , she told me a story..
She spoke of a boy she loved dearly..
She said he was like none other..
Her words spoke of love..her eyes..of another..
