    I Will Take A Shot At It

    Misery loves company. Company loves misery. Misery is in our souls. Misery is the dark water we drink. Misery is the hell we are all fear.

    He Is Me

    there is a creature that comes from a place where there is no hope or joy. The air itself is filled with misery. His heart is filled with a sadness that words really cannot depict. He walks among you but you would never noticed him. He is me.

    "My journey to hell" I thought I had friends,

    I really did, That was my mistake. I put a knife to my throat, A gun to my head, "Any objections?" "No?" "Ok" The knife slides like butter across my throat, The bullet tears through me, As I'm bleeding out, Do I see a helping hand? No of course not, I'm just am extra in...

    The depths of the stars in the sky could never

    hide, The pain, the shame, That I hide beneath the smile in my eyes, And the nightmares, They continue to wake me, Leaving a trail of tears along my face, Some escaping to my hands, Leaving invisible marks of the churning emotions below the smile in my eyes.

    Will we take one more look around. And see what we have become, Of this world we are the parasites and the scum. The sky has tuned black as slate, The soil is now ashen. Is this truly the worlds fate, To be suffocated by our hand without compassion. The birds are all gone...

    When Roses Are Known For Their Thorns
