ParadiseI picture a place where we can run and hide, a paradise
a simple trick of the mind.
I realise deep inside, as these images subside
reality has a hold on me, no matter how hard i fight.
I take your hand in mine, our souls entwined
but our destiny declined,
fate will never let us be, together in this life.
As we lie awake, desolate tears stream from our eyes
our hearts beat softly together, tonight its just you and I
You put your arms around me, hold me tight
as i drift from your sight.
I watch you take your last breath, I realise
the end is nigh.
I pray to God 'take me quickly'
I just want to be by your side,
Then i see the light, it takes my life
We're in paradise.

The world entering my lungs.
I don't want this,
Why would I want the world inside me?
I just want to stop,
But I can't, I don't have the courage.
Besides, there's you.
You push air into my lungs,
you force a smile to my lips,
and you make my eyes go dry.
Honey, when I'm with you, the world stops.
And all the air I breathe in, is yours.
Not the world's, the world's air is cruel,
the world's air is filled with pain and fear.
But your air, your air is just fantastic.
It fills me with joy and hope, it makes me happy.
When I'm with you, I take all the air I can,
because when you go, the world turns again.
It spins so fast that it makes me sick,
and there's no more air to breathe in.

Once the day's light fades away
Time to leave the waking world
Transcend the wooden mountains
Looking back as the day perishes
There are no more hours today
I approach the polyester domain
Limp lifeless unwelcoming sheets
They lie cold crumpled and empty
Laden with discarded clothing
A cemetary of yesterdays atire
Restlessly lying in their grasp
Uncomfortably coating my shape
Forcing themselves away in disgust
Retreating to the bed's corner
Covering far away in the darkness
Sodium light pours into the room
Piercing the thin dull curtains
Intruding into my dark space
Banishing the accepting night
Forbidding any chance of sleep
I force closed my tired eyes
Light replaced by a wall of black
A perfect impenetrable canvas
Decorated by the mind's illusions
Painting their transfixing colours
The wistful shapes assume a form
Colours moulding in front of me
Subconscious details are building
A figure moves to the foreground
Your image fills my sleeping view
Here within this limitless kingd

That natural rush you get doing something outragiously
In the summer I'd do the scaryest things I could think of only to end up with a few cuts and the need to do it
I had to become
A primal urge told me I needed this to survive.
INSTINCT - my weakness .
Following my gut instinct because it felt right; others neglected they're own.
I remember everything, yet nothing-
And I still get by in what we call "life".
But it isn't really life, we aren't really living;
We're trapped -cagged- by our
...Or lack of.
We say we're free, but are we really?
Do we anymore freedom than a zoo animal?
They belong in the wild; they're WILD life.
A wild-life, yes that's what I want,
What I need.
I belong to them; they are part of my domain.
Where we all belong, the wild.

Soft black cotton
Your arms around me
And the pillow
That cleaned me up
When I spilled across your floorboards
I'd be content to lie beneath the kissing suns
Just to hold you in my arms
