What Happened?

Always out there, always popular
Always had friends, always with a partner.
One marriage but what was love?
Another marriage and I had it for real
Then she went and found it with another.

My soul mate next but I couldn’t escape
The ravages of my childhood…Nor she
as we loved and lost and fell apart
time and time again.
For she was the one.
Now she’s gone too, and happy like all the rest.
After me they always do best.

Meeting new people, going out now.
Singles scene, not for me, but what else?
The process helps but can’t fill the hole within.
They care but I feel nothing.
What should I feel?
How do you feel?
Who to talk to?
Brother, Mother. They stuffed my head.
Father wonderful, but now he’s dead.

Now it’s just me and my new shadows.
Lurking, silent, unrelenting, cold and draining.
They follow me everywhere, They’re always there
I can no longer hide. When will they go?
But I have my kids, although they’ll never know.
So far so good, they haven’t seen through my faces
My smile manufactured when I take them places.

I’ve done my dash, I had my chances
Just never meant to be, for me.
I see now that the kind of happiness I’ve always dream of
was only meant for others.
And so many others
What happened to me?

Goodbye D
Goodbye J
Goodbye K
I envy your happiness.

All the time I face the walls
Looking for someone, looking for company
But all I got was careless souls
Shattered dreams have gone and passed
To leave me in my lonesome fast
No friend’s laughter to cheer me up
No sparkle in my face when I look it up.
Coldness and sorrow is all around
To give me the friend I never found.
But sometimes I wonder why
For all this time I never die
For I am alone
Comfortless and cold
To be in here in my lonesome hole.

 

 

Bleeding Skies

 

Shattered stars across the sky
like the pieces of a broken soul
remind me of days when I could fly
before I fell into the bottomless hole
I look up and cry tears of sorrow
my heart slowly freezing to ice
I wonder if I’ll wake up tomorrow
to a warmth that will feel oh so nice
Reality hits harder than ever before
God has forsaken me
I’m not to feel happy anymore
but my mind will not let it be
A dark time has set in
and i sit upon my throne
time to let the pain begin
no love to call my own
Lonely heart ever needing
I start to lower my head
the skies are bleeding
and I am dead.”

Nightshade

 

 

Black

It feels like the midnight breeze,
It looks like the holes in the sky;
it sounds like the sounds of silence,
it’s cold like a winter’s night.

You stand surrounded by it,
and you feel the coldness arise.
and you ask yourself in the process:
am I loosing my grip on the light?

You stand with your thoughts
between light and dark.
and what’s left of your sanity
implores you to reach for the light.

But you’ve found that this darkness
has come from your inner mind;
and if you look for a way to dissolve it,
you have to reach into your heart.

And as you peer into the sunlight,
the darkness gathers at your back;
you remember the things you’ve done,
all the secrets you’ve left behind.

And while this may rip your illusions,
the message I give you Is life.
never forget your own darkness
but always strive on for the light.

Loneliness rips me apart

It’s another black mark,
On a black paper so dark,
Things that happen around me,
They do not nothing but feed the loneliness inside me,
Make it grow,
From the gaping hole in the pit of my stomach,
To the growing cancer inside of my brain.
Its another wrinkle,
In my face so wrinkled.
Loneliness has been a constant companion,
This friend in need is a pest indeed!
Days become months,and months years,
But loneliness still reigns above all my fears,
The cruel king that it is;
With remorse his queen,
This is how its been.
For the years that have passed,
Ive been outrun outdone outclassed,
So what is it that i do now?
Do i try and find out.
