Self Consumed Never Sated

Chained to your past isolated

Self consumed and never sated

Seeing your self, you still felt baited

But had to heal and no longer waited

Opening your eyes so I could see

How you break your chains and set you free

Seeing them drop we started to flee

Hugging, we shook away your anxiety

Finally Hearing The Song

Skipping over the unwritten words

Verses I never really heard

Heaving sobs beginning the purge

Loving still what’s passed on is my dirge

Colon Turd

Come over here let’s hear what you heard

Are you sure it was a little bird

Because what you just said sounds absurd

And smells like a decayed colon turd

After I Face It

Deny or accept ultimate blame

Breaking the mirrors can’t hide my shame

Reeling in my rage hoping to tame

Or could I look down counting who came

Slipped In Between

I can’t see the man I used to be
So now I’m chained and wished to be freed
Could memories be laughter’s conclusion
Or dark imaginings both consuming

Having read the lines I slipped between
Flailing in the deep not being seen
None stopped the crash and cries not heard
Is the phoenix an angel or firebird

Crystal Ball

The mention of her name still turns a tear
With sharp echoes stabbing my inner ear
Our fortunes together were never clear
As the crystal ball rolled away with the seer
