I am modest,
I am docile,
I am of those most meek.
I am not sure who
I am supposed to be,
You see, I was taught humility
At so young an age,
It was not even a lesson
I needed the most taught to me.
Now Shame is all I have ever know,
And She often walks hand in hand with Fear.
He was an even crueler Lover.,
And now I am with an unusual certainty
Afraid to be
All that I could, all that I am, inside.
Their shadows still follow me,
and so I have allowed my heart to dwell
No, to hide behind these walls
I built with quiet reserve
In my own silent determination,
Bent on saving what little of me is left.
Having never stepped outside
This Palace of Dreams...

For every line etched into stone,
For every spark giving way to fire,
For every sacred word uttered,
By souls marred by the darkness
A new light flickers,
A new candle burns.
The old gods dance,
And the new gods sing.
And every wicked soul,
Every pure heart,
Blends into the next,
Until against the night,
Here we stand.  
The moon,
The sun,
And the stars,
Here,
We've won again.

I know a lot
Feels like it falls on you,
But you're just one person
And you can't protect everyone.
And I certainly don't expect you
To blame yourself for all
That goes wrong in your loves' life.
There's only so much you can do,
And these people,
You're not responsible for them,
Though they may follow
In your footsteps.
Just, be careful the paths you take,
And for those that have followed you
Down the wrong roads,
The most you can do to help them now,
Is ask they follow you
Down your new way.
The rest is entirely up to them.

I'll love myself
When it slips your mind to do so.
And I'll love you too
When it seems you've forgotten how.
I'll take deep breaths,
And the dog for a walk.
I'll stand to the side,
When your one track mind
Takes you far from me.
And I'll wait here at home,
Building, growing, learning,
So that when you find your peace,
And start making your way back?
Everything will be ready
For us to lay down
And take a night off,
Together.

I try so often
To stray from love.
To stay so far
From the path that leads
To a stranger's heart.  
To avoid the emotional craze
At absolutely all costs,
For no headstone of mine,
Shall be adorned with roses
Perhaps maybe vine,
Though no tears do I want
Watering the ground  
Beneath which I lie.

Space is everywhere.   
Or so they say.   
But here on earth    
The stars have failed to reach me,  
I suppose though, it may be    
Through no fault of their own,  
For so often I find myself  
Forgetting simply     
To look up.

I find there is no trust to be had
In the Angels with pure wings,
For I hear they scrub clean
All the dirt from their feathers.
All their misdeeds, washed away
So easily with just soap and water.
But I trust the devil,
With all the black beneath his nails
And the smoke that stains his clothes,
For at least as he does wrong,
He will never lie of it.

No peace was ever kept by the tamest of monarchs, but rather by those more zoomorphic, those who ruled like Lions, and fought like Wolves, and loved as only Beasts do. Those were the ones who could wage wars, fall cities, and break treaties, and somehow remain the most Beloved of their Kingdoms, for sometimes in order to keep the Peace, you must show the method to your Madness, you must prove your Intelligence, and match it with you Insanity, your Wildness. Otherwise no longer will you be their Deity, but simply, just another king.

No dragon I fear,
Not those crimson eyes,
For I bleed the same colours
And have lived the same lives.
But of the flames I am afraid,
For in the dark forever I hide.
Perhaps these beasts,
Are braver than I.

In this place of worship you are no longer welcome,
For though these flames once flickered in your name,
There is a new god rising , and if you don't want him
To spin your silver plated throne into gold,
Then I suggest you make like a dog, and learn some new tricks.

If ever you see me
Driving down some country road,
Going eighty, playing my music way too loud,
Pull out in front of me.
Stop me.
I won’t hit you.
I promise.
My brakes are too good,
And I’ve been watching the road,
And chances are, I saw you before anyways.
So pull out.
Or around.
Whatever you do.
And then
Don’t move.
Even if we back up traffic.
Get out.
Or call me.
Or something.
Ask me what the hell I’m doing.
And why.
Tell me to go home, find a parking lot,
Or even just pull over.
Yell, scream.
Make me cry.
But please.
Just don’t let me drive.

Within my own Pandora’s box lies no gift.
But yet I beg it be guarded just the same, for a Star that has burned too bright, and is left to be buried in a bed of the ashes of all it loved, will rise again, this time in fear, and as they say, energy can not be created nor destroyed, and fear is as destructive as any supernova.

So far no blade
Has been able
To tell me my name.
No kiss of steel
Has revealed my future.
And no crimson blade
Has changed my past.
But I trust this knife
To guard my secrets,
For even if it spoke,
Its voice could still kill.

Tonight I shake hands with every

For in any time of crisis the only          
          comfort I have found,
      Has come to me in a bottle, a

     In the names of Gluttony and                            
                      Lust.
        Tonight I dance, with the

That hide under my bed, and the          
      skeletons that rattle in my     
                    closet
   Tonight I make deals even the

Nor strong enough,
To carry me just high enough
To scrape these skies.
Oh, but being under your gaze
Was always enough,
And your Love is always enough
And now no longer do I feel the need
To have more than just enough.

Who bares his teeth
And growls in the face

Who brought him home.

Could you possibly show,
Than to chew off the hand
That comforted you under the new moon.

“You’re not alone, I’m here.”
“I’m here.
“I’m here.”
You’re here.
But where? Where, on these moonless nights, are you, when she’s driving down yet another dirt road, in a town she’s unsure of, running from ghosts that just want her to come back, so they can cradle her in their arms, where at least, they say, she’ll never be on her own.  
Where are you, when she stands under the streetlights, and so recklessly bids these shadows to step into the light, so that at least she’ll know what it is she’s facing, so that at long last, she’ll know what all is wrong with her, why there’s so many chains weighing her down, so that maybe she can convince herself to finally let them go,
Where are yo...

In this place, let me tell you,
Subtlety does not exist. There is nothing,
But a million screaming voices,
An absolute cacophony of nonsense,
That is just enough to make your head
Wanna split wide open.
Let me ask you though, do you think
They truly have anything of substance to say,
Anything within their minds
That is truly relevant to the time being
To the moment being,
Or are they are just recklessly making noise,
In some vain attempt to be heard?

There is no peace here, My Love, no quiet.  
No genuine happiness, because in this place
No one is looking for it, and well,
Even if they were, and they found it,
It would be taken from them,
By someone exactly as they used to be...

You and I are not of Blood,
But oh, Brother,
Still, we are the same.

Too good for our own,
And to our own.
And within us we carry
This Rage of Ages
And the Pains of this Time.
If only we could come together.

How these kingdoms would fall and rise?
I swear it, this new Era would tremble,
If only you and I could get along,

Tell me, My King,
Must I bow before you
And plead my case in regards to my own freedom,
When before you even came into your kingdom
I sat here upon my own throne, and bade you stand by my side,
So that you too may live off the spoils of this rich land?
And now,  you have betrayed me, your own Queen?
And taken all I have worked so hard for,
And claimed it for your own.
Surely, My Lord, You will grant me this final wish.
Surely, you will not allow me to grovel in the dirt
In the very same position in which I found you,
Not even so long ago.

'Just a drink, a couple of beers.
That's it, I promise,
I'll call you in an hour,
So you can take me home.'
Well, now it's five past two and
In the morning I have to work,
But I know the second
I close my eyes you'll call me,
Probably drunk, maybe angry,
Or maybe, just giddy.
And you'll keep me up
For another hour or so,
Rambling about nothing and
Everything at the same time.
And I'll let you, because

How lost I'd be, if I no longer
Had anyone to take care of...

My favorite story, no matter how it is written, always ends on a rather intoxicated note,
when you call me stuttering, stumbling, and when I, for the very last time, or I so I always believe, bring you home.
You say goodbye, and I leave, the stars burning as bright as my teary eyes.
And though I know it would be foolish of me to accept one more hello from you, it is quiet nights such as these, when once more I find myself headed your way, that I fear once again this chapter might be revised.
