    The Beast and I The beast is quickly becoming

    part of me And as I slowly decay I become more and more okay With the beast having its way Don't worry young one, I'll get my way too Now that the beast is me

    Only when the last tree falls to the ground,

    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...

    "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...

    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.
