The Mirror's Verdict

Posted by Stephen on February 26, 2010 at 9:44 PM Comments comments (3)

I used to be a dreamer, but now it's quite clear
As I watch the dreams dissolve into walking nightmares
That the deceit is complete
No more reason to compete
Stripped bare left bereft of all beliefs
Just the shell of once upon a times former self
A derelict artifact on times dusty shelf
Then I take a long look in the mirror with sickened realization
The reflection is not me....
It can't be....
Or is it?
Is this the product of a deeply...

trial by fury

 

 

visions of apples served by upright serpent professionals

in uptight designer suits with printed jars of nude women burning

on starchy ties hung over golden harp voice boxes

Because Of You

Posted by Stephen on November 24, 2009 at 10:17 PM Comments comments (3)


The feelings you evoked, a glow so comforting
A warmth I've never known, a cleansing embrace
Your smile is the sun, a gentle afterthought
I was lost and so far gone....

Saved because of you....

Holding you for the first time was a moment of clarity
Framed forever within the banks of my memory
How were you able to bring back this tainted soul
From the brink of...

Should I Stay Or Go Away

SHOULD I LEAVE OR GO AWAY

 

 

 

 

Tell me, is it meant to be

 

Were you meant for me

 

Can we ignore the common adage

 

All things fall apart eventually...

 

 

Or are we living the moment

 

Without gving a moment

 

Maybe we should let it go

 

And start seeking atonement...

 

 

Is it a p...

IF.

IF.

 

 

If I could step back in time....

Know that I would not change a thing

I would keep that dagger buried in my back

Along with all the sad songs we sing.

 

And if I'd never had my heart crushed

Would I know what love truly means

Or would I simply take it all for granted

Keep tugging on the puppet strings.

 

Always portrayed a persona that I truly am heartless

I guess I spent too much t...

Self Reflection and Reflecting On You

Self Reflection and Reflecting On You......

 

 

I was young and hungry, an appetite for destruction

Wreckin' ball lyrics that demolish your construction

A revolutionist and a rebel without function

Talk compromise, then meet me at the junction

Recall all the times walkin' down the Vegas strip

In the middle of this basin where all the vagrants live

Blendin' with the crowd just another faceless kid

With plans of being famous ...
