Etching the Flesh
And in the turn of a momentary misunderstanding
We find ourselves, face to face ranting;
I can feel you’re broken – and me, it’s breaking!
I wish I could talk to you without shaking,
Tired of mistaking love for hate!
As I know I’m no longer the man you want to date;
But please let’s put aside all we have to debate;
And once again try to come together; relate!
We’ve made mistakes which has changed us
I know what we’ve been through has more than drained us!
We both question what the years have gained us,
Hoping they’ve done more than having pained us!

Carving the Flesh
It kills me to think I had to do this again,
Try to shove you away and say I end;
With you and say I can’t hold true
We are obviously not meant to be!
When you say you’ll never be with me
Again – and I sin with slits in my wrists ;
Now and how I could die for you and prove,
That I love you: Be the man for you, in all you want;
But your kisses and affections come as taunts!
You haunt my dreams and all seems unreal!
EXCEPT WHAT I FEEL!
You traverse your word, and whirl my world;
Confused and confounded nothing is sound;
In your proud state of hate and mind, that unbinds
Me and you – to think that was true – really isn’t
And again were prisms of reflections and ‘isms
Of prisons – of which you’ve hidden him’
From me and the truth that we could be together

Emended; Burned Into flesh
There I was in a parking lot,
Hugging my best friend,
Staring at the trees that were bending,
Blending dreams on horizon with reality;
Presenting the fragility that this could be
The time we hugged for the last time;
As if our world was ending!
I realized then; it was only the beginning.
Eventually we’d pull apart and began to walk;
Talk as we stare at the trees and finally feel the breeze!
Slowly then, when it all slowly makes sense;
We’ll have seen the forest grown dense;
Immense thoughts we fought surface and face us
against us again.
No more relapses of memories that have past us,
I can’t trust the moment, when it will bust?
I cannot deal with this! I wish I was an alien,
Seein’ everything from space’,
Dreaming to replace a shit world.
In which everything I love whirls in the opposite direction;
Like the erection of an Australian; stranded on an island;
Is how I’ll make you feel in the end; ‘cause I’ve dreamed our end
And I feel its time I put thought to rhyme and told you,
Were long overdue to be through!
I know one day you’ll regret losing me as you plummet
To the darkest depths with no precept;
Never ever again to be deeply received!
Too bad destiny finally reveals what shouldn’t be!
