Welcome to my MADNESS

Covered in skin

In the sun I eat the dirt
Congealing on my hands
From the spit spewed from my mouth
Torn at the edges 
Ragged from the talons that clawed my flesh
Dripping vermillion 
Dripping disease 

This heart cannot kiss a wind
This heart cannot save it's own soul
If left to ruminate on words
Uttered in haste
Spoken in the shadow of a closed hand
Whispered in the retched bile of a sin

I have lost you now
This I know
For I see not a shadow
But a forlorn empty space
Covered in an outline of tomorrow
Covered in your blood
As I cover you in my skin

Walk with me

Lived in the rain 
Hope scattered in the splash of a puddle
Reflected of the sky
Steady tattoo of sound
Pitter pat
Pitter pat
Heavy are the feet that walk the mud
Heavy is the heart that only sees ground
Afraid to lift their head
Afraid to see what I see
No beauty is seen in the dark
Eyes hide the glint of once that was
Eyes belie the truth of that will be
Pitter pat Pitter pat
In the palm of my hand I hold yours
Intertwined fingers clasp for anything
Allow me to be those eyes that see no more
Allow me to whisper a name in your ears
Unheard of since the rains began
I walk beside so you never walk alone
Pitter pat

Pitter pat

Tomorrow begins lonely

Silver trembles at thought of loneliness

Endured in the light of the new moon

Eyes cast to the heavens from lands away

Viewing the same stars in constellations unknown

And I kiss


Silken touches of skin electric

Tenderness devours eclectic rhythms born of sorrow

Words left unsaid feed the baying hounds

Confuse the jester now as a card is played

And I kiss


Layered in cashmere you hide to obscure

Kaleidoscopic distortions live the truth

Eyes give away reality to that left unsaid

Shrouded in protection giving way to seduction

And I kiss


In the realm of another place I see your reflection

As a single hand touches as words whisper unspoken

Reveal trust in the guise of forever

Reveal yesterdays torment as another scar of protection

And I kiss


Sail me through the wake in seas of a calm storm

Intolerable as the future guides nothingness 

Weening from the teet of a new day

Hidden in the illusion of self doubt

And I kiss


Dodging raindrops as they fall gold from the stars

Skin coloured alabaster glistening in the sun

I call nothing and whisper your name

A gypsy’s smile cast in a spell of love

And I kiss


In the last kiss goodbye

I linger a moment more

Holding your breath

Listening to the evermore

And I kiss
