Pillage Hearts

You give me so much of false hope

The worst thing to give someone

Stop giving me the love you don’t receive

Your golden eyes make my heart asphyxiate

I see your waves from across the hall

But then I run away from such signs sights

Because deeper meanings have always ruined movies for me

You come in here and pillage everything you can

You take my help to ruin my sanity,

You take pleasure in watching me fear society,

You take my smiles and make them ethereal,

You take my heart,

My heart.


When the supernovas collide

Do you feel how much it burns?

That’s how much it hurts

When you’re not here.

You are my pilgrimage

My retreat.

Lightyears ahead of my path

You shine above to light the way

Over thousands of the bones of the dead.

I pray you’ll fall out of the sky

And onto my arms

So that I can touch you again

Because, honey, I’ve lost all feeling

I’m all bones and no skin.

I’ve been traveling in this lonely row boat

From terra to your abode in space

Through the cluster currents

And pushing through asteroids

Just so I can kiss you once more.

I want to give up on this journey

But you give me assurance that

Everything will be alright.

But how alright can I be when you’re a dead star?

doorstep blues

as I waste my hands on the piercing strings of this twenty year old guitar

i think of how much it hurts you and your father

that i play this broken body to it’s death

outside your doorstep

i live

with cigars and all this short lived satisfaction

yet i can only think of playing hide and seek with your lips

your mother tries to explain your early demise

but i won’t accept your cancer ridden corpse

in the mortuary of my mind

give me the love that i deserve

damn it

your father tries to explain but i wont have any of it

i’ll continue to be the only constant thing in your graveyard

singing songs that turn out to be my wailing

my sorrows echo through these white lily walls

promise me you’ll safeguard our heart’s tomb,

till the curtain of my life
