Dark Necessities

There is a certain kind of darkness,
enveloping our environment,
in the form of a government
empowered by the greed for progress,

Repressively religious policies,
leading to cultural atrophy,
for chaos has a new identity,
behind orange strands of white supremacy

The power of a choice,
between monsters and democratic mires,
countries being led by demagogues,
pathetic principals, proficient perjurers

It has been noted that their fallacies,
enforced, via overnight misery
promises by a white knight,
forsaking the plebeians plight

We are puppets on strings,
threading pompous plans and opulent things,
giving in to the grandeur of greed,
knowingly sowing corruption’s seed

We’ve succumbed to blasphemy
publicized by media-ocre gimmicks,
buckling to societal entropy
proving that we’re all just cynics

These dark necessities,
are what humans have embraced,
if only we all could see,
what humanity has erased.

Grief.

Inspired by the song Insurgentes by Steven Wilson


I used to be, irreplaceable
yet now you’re fading,
so irresistible,

You decay,
as I watch,
you obey,
my touch..

Every passing day,
you try to let go
I’ll find a way,
to surround you in sorrow,

I bring tears
laced across as facial veins,
like desolate railway tracks
contoured across barren planes

You decay,
on my watch,
in dismay,
as I touch..

Do not resist me,
i’m only hear to teach,
lessons you will learn
once I have breached

All these walls,
you built so you can hide,
all your flaws,
my shelter to reside,

You decay..
as I watch..
you obey..
as I touch..

I am grief,
I reside within your soul,
you stare at me in disbelief,
as I consume you whole
