There's an abyss in front of me A beautiful ocean, darker Than the vacancy of my misery I'm craving for that unknown But what's lurking on the other side? Don't know what I really want Though where in the darkness Can I flee? Is there a place to hide? Gravity pressure upon shoulders Lungs collapsing like boulders When there's an abyss swallowing me Another void to escape to If only in a nightmare that's left When in sleep all is as still Silent against the fears I know For the abyss ever lingers all around me.
We make poison look so pretty... Ignorance truly is abhorrent, Just a dead end car ride, As the flowers wilt From putrid vapors; And we are told To breathe... Rabid butterflies in my heart, Losing their scales, Wings crumbling to dust; Decaying... As tepid fingers Walk across ancient pages, Forever wandering; Alone in the gloom.
