The Bite

Lived the night
To survive my fears
Heard the noise
Of my tears
They fell hard
On the bloody floor
But hurt my dying heart
Even more
Still feel the sting
From the fangs
They entered me
Like strangling hands
If that one moment
Had been a nightmare
I’d be screaming
Instead of saying a prayer

TBT: She Appeared (2006)

She appeared
To be wearing black cloth
Strange because it moved like a breeze
Across the swells of her chest
A single piece of heaven
Trapped there
Not even a ghost
Would think to snare

She appeared
To be looking at me
Strange eyes as they moved like a whip
Across the whole of my lips
A single piece of heaven
Laid there
Not even saints
Would think to share

Slight Deline

I only see
Confusing spirals
When all I want
Are straight lines
There was a sign
When I was fine
But I feel like
I’ve run out of time

I only see
Lost shadows
When all I want
Is focused light
There was a night
When I felt fright
But I feel like
I’m ready to fight

TBT: Night Fire (1998)

Night fire
Brings down the town
Enrages my soul
Looks with a frown

Burning smile
Speaks of my death
Erases my flesh
Steals my breath

Night fire
Walk me to hell
Take me in deeper
With sins I tell

Burning faces
Stare at my fashion
Laughs at my child
Kills with passion

A thousand bridges
To my heart
I never felt like you had
A good start
To find the one love
That holds you true
There were so many
That fell apart

A thousand excuses
To my mind
I never felt like I had
A chance to explain
To find the one reason
That holds true
There were so many
Chances to blame

TBT: Offer (2011)

There's this pressure in my head
In terms of relief
It has little to offer
It creates monsters and glory
But never both together

There's this emptiness in my heart
In terms of satisfaction
It has little to offer
It dictates what I do
But never why I bother

There's this endlessness in my soul
In terms of peace
It has little to offer
It sends advice and regret
But never told me remember

Shame (Was Never An Enemy Of My Mistakes)

Living with my shame for an eternity
Thankfully courage was my serenity
There was nothing to be scared of
Nothing to fear inside my home

Dealing with my mistakes takes forever
Thankfully forgiving was more clever
There was nothing to be angry for
Nothing to hate outside my home

TBT: Curious Mood (2000)

The complete
Of my interior
Was as empty
As my hands

The removal
Of my inferior
Was as funny
As my fans
