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
I listen to the breeze whisper a curse.
The blackest of night’s shrouds covered it’s verse.
Insipid the words that worked their way in.
Dragging me down o’er dark vales of sin.
Oh how I needed a friend tonight.
A friend to guide me to the light.
And there you were my friend indeed.
There you were to bind wounds that bleed.
Shining as my beacon calling me back.
Your beauty, your love, made pain retract.
Thankyou my love I owe you my heart.
My light, my saviour, when all seemed too hard.
Can you look at how it feels?
Take a peek beneath…
Godless and graceless
A confirming wink
Down it breaks
Before the breakdown
The disorder of the mind
The tsunami of thought droppings
Snapping in half my toothpick cocktail umbrella
Like the opposite of a made bed
I’ve become less of a face
More of a disgrace

Death sits watching
Scythe to hand
Looking and waiting
For the weakest of men
He looks for battles
He watches the wars
He looks to the hospitals
His favourite wards
He watches the lonely
He waits for the weak
He’s watching you
He’s watching me
Death sits watching
Scythe sharpened bright
Looking and waiting
To end someone’s life
I will defy you in every word.
I will resist ’til the war has turned.
I will fight with every fibre of my being.
I will strain to wipe you off my scene.
I will never fall under your rule.
I will defend my heart, and soul too.
I will win and love will prevail.
And you, yes you! You will fail.
Moods swing from high to low,
The reasons are there, we both know.
The uncompromising fact of what is.
The compromises in life we have to give.
All we can do is hunker down, let the raids pass.
And pray to whoever is out there for a love that’ll last.
Fuck that! Let them drop bombs, fire shots our way.
I’ll still wear my heart on my sleeve and fucking wave!
I’ll still love you with passion, I won’t compromise.
And I’ll fight the demons til the day they die!
I’ll do everything, move mountains and more.
Cos I ain’t compromising our love, It will endure.

Over and again
Again and over
A tour en le’air
Held in the shadows
Of my doubts
A Cacophony with no rhyme
Pains me without any reason
Oh how vile…my hidden odile!
Her plumes of black
Seducing my sanity
As she pirouettes into my heart
Toe drilling for my poison
Releasing our ritual of reverence
