I Said

“Now!” Said I,

“No need to dream” Said I

“Aye aye” Yelled I

“No goodbye” Said I

“Now, or be condemned”, Said I

“Oh lord!” Said I

“Don’t let those dreams lie” Screamed I

“But dreams are a gift” Whispered I

“Yes—- a gift” Said I

Then I Said “Yes a gift”

“But those lie” Affirmed I

“Those dreams tell a lie” Asserted I

“But your eyes grow weak and weary” Said I

“Weak and weary?” Asked I?

“Yes”, Gently Said I

“Said I?” I Said

“Is this a dream?” Pondered I

“If so, let me rest without a lie” Said I

“Dreams are reality” Said I

“Dreams are truth?” Wondered I

“Truth are dreams?” Repeated I.

“All those lies with one goodbye” Said I

“All those lies with one goodbye” Repeated I

“And so whom is responsible?” Knew I

“Who is responsible? Said I with a Sigh

“Yes this is truth” Said those dreams that lie

“Yes this is fact” repeated those dreams that lie

“Now say your goodbye” Said those dreams without a lie 

“Drift off into the black sky” Said those dreams that never lie

“Give it a try” Commanded I

“Rest in peace in the star-speckled sky” Said I

“Listen to those dreams that never lie”

Said I

“Goodbye” thought I

“Goodbye”

The Love Death

Feelings feelings on the wall

Which emotion trumps them all?

Love, love, love is fake

Oh dear, dear please awake!

The man you know doesn’t exist

Perhaps in your dreams, may you kiss

Yet dreams dreams never stay

So darling darling stop the child’s play

When life’s lights finally blackout

You’ll finally see your love turnabout.

Gloom’s Shadow

Gloomy shadows, that most us transpire

Shower are souls with desperate desire.

Affecting our lives to a disastrous state

We believe to hold it our true fate.

But like a fire these mass shadows show myth

Only behind an unvarnished light will we then see through the monolith.

The World Is Ending Soon.

[I can feel it in my soul, someone colored the moon

As the clock’s binding rhythm reaches fine tune

The nameless fear, which does not permit 

For those who’ve met, cannot admit

The world is ending soon.

The sleepless and dreadful thoughts, of sin and not fitting in
fills my lungs and penetrates within.

God’s wrath should soon be upon us, so speak now, what have ye sinned?

The forbidden love with a hint of rejection, paves way to the unforgivable insurrection

From ages back to where the box was opened, laid an heirloom

To which gave us to are doom——because the world is ending soon.

The truth most of us choose to deny

Will quickly force are lives to fly by

When we realize what we’ve forsaken

Our souls will surely be overtaken
Because the world is ending soon]
