A Dynasty and A Death

Falling apart I break,

Bursting at the seams,

Eternally haunting my own grave,

Longing and dying,

Too tired of trying,

I, in the pits of my despair,

Am forever a child,

Treated as both young and old,

All rolled into the one,

I am a dynasty and a death,

A dying and a dead,

Both under the same sun,

Oh dear God what have I become?

Unveiling Soul

Layer by layer I break,

And watching each piece flake,

I yield myself to an unsuspecting world,

Showing the truth that lies within my soul,

Allowing the pain to go becomes my only goal,

Tear after tear,

They fall and I once again, am whole,

For the shattering light has made me clean,

And thus has washed away all that was once unseen.

Afraid to love,

Afraid to be,

Afraid of you,

Afraid of me,

So many rhymes that make up it all,

So many lines, with so much to tell,

Scared to be broken,

Scared to be hurt,

Probably cause you’re not the first,

They say a heart only has one true love,

But if that’s true then they never met us.

Makeshift World

Crawling back into my makeshift cave,
Away from the world and it’s forbidden light
Into my dark pit I go
Where no one,
Not even you can find me,

I break into a million pieces before my time,
And let my world too shatter around me,
I die a thousand deaths in cursed hope that perfection shall be restored,

And I long ofor the final sweet release, Whenever that may be,
Of this deep pain that lies within me.
