Drowned with the Atlantis(Even Cupid cries)
Your skin on mine
Hold me like the mortals do
Sing me a lullaby
Darling,all I have is you.
Your hand in my hair
Your lips upon mine,
Even gods have a soul,
And I'm just one of them nine.
I'll dance my prayer,love.
Go forward and never turn
All this time,I thought,
This city will burn.
Who knew his arrow would break?
No one asked can gods cry.
His tears will drown us,
Give me your love,teach me to fly.
Cupid's tears touched my skin.
It made a red scar.
His wings are almost gone.
Did he,too,lose the one he loved?
I wanted to help
But you held me there
Don't become a mortal,
It's too great a burden to bear.

Not at this time.
In a sea of silence,
She's losing her mind.
The words are flowing
out of reach.
The ocean roars
and beats the rocks.
It plays a bass
that will not stop.
She bobs on the surface
then falls underneath.
Slowly she rises,
Finding her feet.
The pencil lifts
and finds its way to her lip.
She zones out
and chews at its tip.
A lightning bolt strikes,
Her pencil flies to the page.
It scribbles crazily,
Almost in a rage.
She can't speak,
Not at this time.
In a sea of words,
She's finding her mind.

I love this creature who dances for me
her radiant smile illuminates this dark place
this woman is a treat
a temptation that haunts my mind

my private dance is finished
tomorrow my lovely angel
I'll again be in front of the window
for you watch dance
you're my phantasm unreachable

Broken GlassesThe tale began with my trudge down the road.Broken Glasses8 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Hidden faces piercing me; were I some sort of a show?
But I was broken, broken within my heart.
And so I realized too late,
but even before I could have realized, my glasses broke.
If I were to wear them,
would appear the people,
who imitated my friends.
But sculptures too erode; they're nothing anymore,
through my broken glasses.
I once sensed the feel,
were I lost in lost spaces;
for them I wasn't even real.
Nothing more I'll be, they still jeer at me,
while I wear broken glasses.
She did love me once,
such long time ago,
when times were not tense.
But breaking a pledge

love is a delicious beverage
but which can also lead to our own destruction

Look at yourself!!Look!
You're the brightest star of them all.
See,darling,you're the most beautiful one,
But still,you chose to fall.
Your wings shattered,
And your soul went black,
Did you ever regret it,my dear?
You keep it silent,there's no way back.
You left heaven behind you,
Do you miss it? I know I do,
I miss the innocence and the glitter,
The sweetness of the clouds and the truth.
I miss my wings,
Yes,honey,I lost them too.
See,when you fell,
I jumped. I fell with you.
I just wish you'd take me in your embrace,
Hold me tight and never let me go
Your sinful lips on mine,
Send me the wind and I'll know.

Why do I keep hurting the ones I love?
And my heart is beating fast.

My thoughts are lost in the paths of their perfection.
I am a stranger there.
And I was still looking at the mirror.
Talking to myself.
Staring at my own bulimic reflection.

And how divine,

To be so astute, in aspect of appearance
and what lack of cerebral activity there is!
For my homily, may the correct allegory be chosen.
As heterodox to your methods are my own.
A metaphor to obliterate your way of life.
The tribal drums beat out the endless protests,
both boar and bug, whose words are but useless jest.
Fire up the mob, to run their way to the empty trough.
Where they find desolation to add to their famine.
Brittle, they scream in the agony the subltely anticipated.

I saw angels dance with devils
under winter's crystal sky.
Old men passed between them,
crying "Dead men never die!"
Then the oceans fell before us,
as the dead began to sing.
Heavens parted wider;
winds prickled at our skin.
Now Satan awakes slowly,
like shadows on the sands.
Together we beg forgiveness,
as he lacerates our hands.
The landscape lies broken,
as stones roll through the hills.
Stars are growing brighter,
fed by blood of untold kills.
Death bends his toxic breath,
exuding nameless streams.

Blacker than the darkest night
A specter weaving through the clouds
Majestic is his flight
Piercing eyes reach into my soul
From the netherworld he will come
When I am no longer whole
Spawned from the magick of old
In a lingering mist he waits
Cast in velvet shadows so cold
Roses fall upon my grave
Talons clasp my fading spirit
A fallen love will he save
Shrieks echo across a leaden sky
Life descends to the arms of death
Scarlet tears begin to fly
Memories my heart cannot sever
Broken dreams whisper —
real love is forever

Scared of the monsters
Lurking in my past.
With wicked eyes.
Who watch me,
Waiting for a chance,
To knock me off balance.

Of the monsterous things I have done
And who I have become;
As a result of the hatred,
And those terrible things
That are too unspeakable
To be said.
That the monsters,
Whose red gleaming eyes;
Red like the colour of blood,
Red like the roses collecting dust in the corner;
The monsters with such hideous eyes
Will make their presence known.

That all that I am

Who got left on the red caboose.
Waving the white flag of truce.
Your cracked plastic flute.
A sour rendition,
Of vice grips,
And broken suspensions.
Avoid the void,
Cut through the sauce,
Toss out your leftovers,
Don't get caught with the lost.
Shutters melting like butter,
Your heart flutters as the microphone sputters.
I lost my guts in the gutters,
While all the others stutter and mutter,
Crushed by the clutter.
Dripping sweat with regret,
Never let the those you met,
See your heart made of coal,
An empty black hole after your soul was sold shame

Lestat, Dragon Child Maria shivered from the winter chill in the Forgotten Realm. It was sleeting outside, and she was frozen. The place she'd chosen to take shelter was little more than an abandon shack. Her short blond hair and clothes were soaked. There was no wood for a fire, and the walls had so many cracks, the wind constantly swirled around her.Lestat, Dragon Child7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
