Comments

assasin

single minded destroyer
set on one goal.
odious lurker
going out of control.
fiendish flayer
who cares not the price
as the ignorant take chances
and roll out the dice.
self-important fools
taking their pleasure
at great cost to others
they have taken the measure.
flaunting their arrogance
as many will perish,
the ones who came before
they who should be cherished.
let this be a warning
in public, wear your mask
or let your conscience
take you to task.

When you fling poo, some of the stink sticks to you!

FLASHBACKS
A picture flashes through my mind
Of that sweet and lovely time
I was happy
That time i knew what joy was and had happiness in my eyes
But now they've turned to ice
Everyday is like a second or a minute passing by
I only stop to cry
And I know
I miss those days
I miss that life
When everything just felt so right and all I feel right now is wrong
My life now is like an old camera
Black and white photographs lay on the floor
They show those sweet and lovely times
when everything I loved in life was mine
I reach out to take hold
but a strong wind pulls me back
I feel a heart attack
and like a noose tied around my neck
it tightens at my throat
and no matter what I do it wont give way
I feel I won't last another day
And I know
yes I know
I miss those days
I miss that life
When everything just felt so right and all I feel right now is wrong
I feel as if i've been swept away by a hurricane
my body body lying motionless at the shore
its as if i've had a heart attack in my head
I feel cold
I feel numb
I feel dead
I bend down and pick up my broken heart
but no matter what I do it won't mend
Even if I call my friends this feeling doesn't seem to end
I want to yell
I want to scream
at this dangerous beckoning
I want to do anything to feel alive agin
even if it hurts instead
and I know
yeah I know
I miss those days
I miss that life
When everything just felt so right and all I feel right now is wrong
cause I see your faces in my head
as I lye awake in my bed
thinking of those better days
to get me out of this numbing haze
back to those normal days
