With Rue And Fire

Walking alone with a tempting grin
to follow the voice that guides a small frown.
Sobs echo past these blinded eyes and deny me of my happiness.
Dismal shades of light brightens my path to solitude and sympathy.
In some sick way I enjoy my pain.
It always seems to indulge me.
Frozen walls of ice guard my every dream,
protecting me from what seems real.
With rue and fire, all demons are cast away.
With water and stone, the sadness drowns in vain.
On thorns and glass, I'm tortured with love.
In tears and blood, I forgive you once again.
This day, I remember the cloudy sky
In which I traveled high above.
But now my wings are broken and I am left alone.

The Jealous Sun

Awaken my soul and open my eyes
Show me the journey and feed my mind
Take me away to lands of green
Forever falling through Gods black veil
Darker spirits than this, have fallen past my eyes
Even through this twilight, my smile lies to me
I can smell the scent of dark and cold winters frost
Deeper in the void we look searching for a golden glance
The jealous Sun is burning for me
So many years my heaven has wept
25 winters of mourn
In darkness I reach out for light
Sighs from above
Rain down on me
Pitiful heart
Always alone
Face down I lay, I'm forced to lick the earth
Cold rain drops far, covering me, soothing my pain
Swelling eyes, fill with blood, blinding me, visions of red
Bitter sweet, taste of life, broken man, I spit on your gift

Suffer The Red Dream

I can see the twilight and twisted shadows it creates.
I can hear the heartbeat of lifes lost sorrow.
Never once can one man dream the absence of a holy shrine.
Eating dirt to fill this void that remains empty and dry.
Liquid from my tears that plummet for eternity,
help to drown the flowers and sprout yet another cry.
For all these fallen angels and the Gods in which they serve,
where will they go when it all comes crashing down?
Your smile doesn't help me and your laughter holds no joy.
I never asked for your pity, or your worthless love.
All of this means nothing to a heart that does not beat,
for this is no salvation and the darkness shrouds my face.
In between this granite frown and a smile made from blood,
the placement of my hands shall cover my eyes of black.
No words can leave my mouth for my throat is coarse and dry,
and my legs quake beneath me, falling before my pain.
Kneel before the suffering and cover your face with earth.
Smother yourself with elegance and dream the dream of red.

All The Beauty Twice Again

A moonlit breeze softly flows past the ancient night.
Always calling out to the saints who hear nothing.
Never to see the royality of age, and the beauty of life.
Fortune comes for all man, inside a fragile wish.
Forever sending guides of hope unto this very flame.
To burn away every dream. All the beauty, twice again.
To whisper in the wind.
Follow me to the edge of the sun,
where only the coldest of hearts can survive.
Laughing to mock me, in sadness we dwell.
Standing alone, all time stands still, for you.

Reaping Forest Calm

Cowards form the veil. Sampling of the salt.
Desire looking glass. In evening they shall come.
Pity stains our hands. Insects bite my eyes.
Forever calling home. Reaping forest calm.
Long painful hymns, a dirge of blackened day.
Falling to my knees to kiss the horses tongue.
Moonlight invades, cancerous lust.
Drawing a smile, bold men have tried.
With sugar we taste, through darkness we fall.
In memories lost hope, I seal my eyes.
Through vertigo's touch, and a northern winds breeze,
onward I search and forever I'm lost.
It feels like an eternity since I last saw the light on your face,
and if I recall, you left me the wind and taught me to fly.
I must have you for one last time and I will pay for my sins
with one thousand lashes from the roses
stem across the very chest that holds my beating heart.

For Every Leaf That Falls

Embrace the silence
And listen to me
Our time is short
And my words are pure
For every song the angels sing
And for every leaf that falls
I will be thinking of you
And I'll blow you a kiss
I used to dream of the blue in your eyes
Now my dreams are color blind
Clenching my fist to crush this pain
Its always the hate in my smile that devours me
Transcending down far beneath my means
A final breath of you to keep with me
Infantile tears are melting the morning snow
And shiver I will, for the heat in you is gone
Never forget to smile
As you look upon this world
somewhere I'll remain alone
thinking of the morning past

Serenity Forgotten

A feather falls and ripples cross the pond.
Reaching the end of nothing, turning stone to dust.
Careless are the children who fail to see the means.
Splash away the visions of serenity forgotten.

Forever With Unopened Eye

Enjoy the sunlight and ride the winds.
Forever warm, for I see now, happiness facades my sorrow.
This outer smile is torn by grief,
and my sunlight soon fades away, and I watch in silence.
Lost here in a poetic trance, my paradise pounds inside my chest.
I remember the days forever with unopened eye.
As quickly as it all began, the darkness overwhelms my joy.
How is this so?
How can it all be gone?
Is there no solution?
Welcome to my mind.
Is there no help for me?
Forever with unopened eye.

Dawn Breaks

Dawn Breaks
And here we walk eluding the night
Telling you tales of how I am lost
You know things now that I can't explain
And I must avoid your beg for words

I can see by the look in your eyes
The trust you once had is gone

I can't hide from what I am
Come with me and leave this behind
Close your eyes and dream of me
Waste not your time for now dawn breaks

Shield myself from the tears on your cheek
Open my arms to greet your embrace

Hold me closely and absorb my warmth
Let me go now and tremble alone

And here we walk eluding the night
Telling you tales of how I am lost
You know things now that I can't explain
And I must avoid your beg for words

I can't hide from what I am
Come with me and leave this behind
Close your eyes and dream of me
Waste not your time for now dawn breaks

Together we can hear
The screaming butterfly
United as one
Gods will fall to their knees
