Looking a stranger in the eye today
Whispers filled my head that moment
Sensation grasped me tightly
Grabbed my neck and twisted
Kissed me on the lips
and gently stripped
the skin away
from my
dead
body

Acquire

Some of us say
that the final day
is just a heartbeat away
But some of us are still standing
at the start

Some of us know
after the final show
it’s time for us to go
But some of us feel
they’re only just rehearsing the part

Some of us are fine
with reaching the finish line
and leaving everything behind
But some of us keep trying
to truly master the art

Sink

Swimming in a pool of pale stars
The coldest water touching my lips
turning into ice in my lungs
I wear the thick coat of common cold
so badly
Waiting for some kind of second nature
to nurture my soul
and make me comfortable in the dark

Indulge

There’s a moment I can’t quite point out
Hide and seek with the universe above my head
Not in a thousand years did I expect to be left here
Floating in a perfect bliss

To take a sip of rest in the afternoon shades of golden light
and drink the opportunities in life

Exasperate

Nameless is the stained glass
picture in red
A pleading whisper
on my bedroom floor

I am darker than life
Wilder than beauty
And I balance on the edge of safety
Any requests of pain shall be answered to

And in the centre of a numbing silence
I found my voice back

Nameless is the girl surrounded by a shattered window
Carpet stains and drapes with tears
The guilt is dripping from my fingertips
I never spared a moment’s thought
for how she’d been
or who she was.

Obscure

I’m known to jump into the gap between prayers
and wield the sting where it hurts the most
Seeing right through
the thin layer of coat
that is your modesty
And the tight layer of skin
that is your taste
You are the weak little girl
that holds her breath
And I’m the power over you
that sips
and takes.

Stir

Drag me right into
the corners of the unknown
and take my secrets
centre stage

Own up and dance now
Confess or forget

Walking bird masks
broke my leg
One of them
was you

Go on then,
feast on my illicit body

Then walk away, with your festering heart
in your hands
and the fragments of my bones
in deeper pockets

Forge

Twinkle dim light
Songs of the soul
An iron melody
Voice of machinery

Twinkle dim light
Songs of the soul
An iron melody
Voice of machinery

Twinkle dim light
Songs of the soul
An iron melody
Voice of machinery

Twinkle dim light
Songs of the soul
An iron melody
Voice of machinery

Twinkle dim light
Songs of the soul
An iron melody
Voice of machinery

Exist

Told you I was
telling lies
which is one word
further from the truth
Deception can be King
at times
And details can
dry out
We are whispering
as we speak
Inches from
our victims ears
Oh, how we dress the world
in empty words together
This is me
And this
is illusion
