Melancholy has taken grip of my soul,
Tears at my heart, my mind, my whole.
It’s lowered its black veil to block out light,
A blanket of gloom against which I cannot fight.
I tried to hide and let it pass unnoticed,
But it heard the tears upon which I was choking.
It claws at my pain carving wounds upon which it feeds.
It finds in me, all it could ever need.
Unhappiness, guilt, A forlorn lack of hope.
When the reality check hit like a rat that jumped boat.
I will look for it again I have to, to survive.
I need that hope or I might as well die.
A victim to reality as dreams are just that it seems.
And melancholy found me, a ripe banquet on which it feeds.
In the dark there can be no forgiveness
Not for me, not for you
Our whimpers have become a scream
Pains of the body where we hide
Confusing life, inside our life, inside our dream
It’s taking even more, more than we thought
And we are meant for beautiful things
So please, I need you to feel me tonight
With an open mind
In our dark there is only forgiveness
For me, and for you
Oh black veil of depression envelop me not.
Silence rewards her with sorrow moribund to rot.
A beast that hath scorned is a beast that will know pain.
For I am the beast that karma will burn in misery’s flames.
Purgatory will hold my soul for I cannot leave.
Truth be truth for there are no lies in this self deceit.
I will die wanting more than I ever deserved.
And I will live long stinking here like a putrid evil turd.
You’ve just dropped me
At the airport
Now I’m lost in this tacky sea
With its rocky wave
Ripping me apart
Oh! The ache in my heart…
Ignoring my plea to save
Depression my old friend
You’ve come to see me again
Reddening my vision
The cut, the incision
And so my tear dropped
Into my taco salad
Mixed with that hot salsa
And that man next to me
He watched me fork it into my mouth…
Tonight I’m headed down south
In more ways than one
My life’s purpose
My play, in several acts
I pray one day
That you will stand in ovation
