Who Are You:

As a man no purse I’ll carry
No lipstick I’ll don
You’ll never have to guess
What side I sleep on

Yet with billfolds, men’s watches
And blue jeans that zip right
Will you be one of the guys
Or someday be a good wife

You walk around with your hair
Cut shorter than mine
And beat me at arm wrestling
Most of the time

If I just ask you right out
I’m a sexist to you
But if we marry will I get
A wife, or maybe two

Spinning, Spinning:

This world goes on spinning, spinning
Friends are made and together cling
Then one day they’ll drift apart
It’s not bad, that life keeps moving
For few souls will forever bond
Tho memories linger in our minds
We knew someday it’d come
Still we hoped this wouldn’t happen
But we must face what has to be
For this pain won’t linger long
This world goes on spinning, spinning
All we can do is hope to hold on

Preach On:

You think you’ll walk
On streets of gold
And in the fiery pit
I will walk below

No more will you
Feel the pain
But the truth is in hell
Your blood will rain

Those Demons teeth at
At your flesh will rip
And only screams will
Come from your lips

Fingers you pointed at us
The demons will devour
And you’ll burn forever
In that raging fire

Preach on that soapbox
With all your might
But your soul is still
As black as night

Tell me not how
To save my soul
For you lost yours
A long time ago

Go tell everyone
About you I have lied
Yet you know on
Your back a demon rides

Last Prayer

Death holds me in its grip
And will never let me go
Tho I walk with this death
It seems I've not walked slow
I ask you, is this the true
And why, must it be so
All that I have to give
Few will ever know
Give me the time I need
So people I can show
The words I wrote to them
Will not, burn with me below

Chose:

Flame or fame
Which will you seek
Hell on this earth
Or after you sleep
Your soul screams
For great power
Then it’ll scream
In that pit of fire
Fame or flame
Chose tonight
Then tell yourself
You’ve chosen right
Go walk this Earth
And feel no woes
Someday you will hear
For whom that bell tolls
To your death bed
You should cling
No matter your choice
Your soul, will scream

I Have No Wisdom



I have no wisdom to write
Upon this page for you
No light to shine within so
You can see my inner soul

Yet you think what you read
Gives you insight about me
So you can tell me how
I should live my meager life

Why do you try and tell me
How to march to my drum
Throw no rocks for your windows
Have long been broken

Ask me not to shine
My light into your soul
For this light of mine
Burned out long ago

They'll Know

Here I sit pen in hand
To write what’s in my head
On this page the words I’ve put
Are written in blood now brown

What I write you will read
You’ll tell me, we think alike
But you’ll say, what I wrote
Are dreams of things unreal

You say my words spoke to you
And someday you’d like to write
Truly you, know not what torture is
For if I could, I’d stop this night

Can’t you hear those demons scream
“Write what you want about us there
Those mortals will never believe
What waits for them down below

Yet after death they’ll understand
What you wrote was subline
As they burn to ashes they’ll know
What is running through your mind”

Is All Lost:

As I write upon this page
What is running through my head
I wonder will anyone understand
Will these words be lost or read

Like the sand on an oceans shore
That just washes out with the tied
Are my words here like that sand
Will man and God watch them die

Maybe someday, some poor soul
Will trip upon those grains of sand
If they read them with their heart
They will cry for their fellow man

What was long ago, is true today
To keep my soul from the pit I dread
I try to write and hope you’ll read
what is running through my head

Serve not Him:

Those that walk upon this earth
Who serve their God below
Think they will someday rule
Yet in truth they’ll burn slow

On this earth they walk with pride
They know not what they’ll find
In that fiery pit full of woe
They’ll be consumed over time

Fire will pour from their mouths
Their skin will smoke for evermore
Bones will turn to ashes white
Then they’ll be again restored

Tho the fire burns white hot
From it no light will they see
Both the outside and from within
Will fry in that lava sea

Screams uttered from their lips
Will blend in with those below
None of us will cry for them
Our tears have dried up long ago

Hidden:


As we walk in the light
Our souls cling to us like shadows
Always hiding from the sun
Like our shadows, they run free
In the dark of night where we
Think neither God nor man can see
What hides deep within our souls
Telling ourselves tomorrow we’ll
Again be purified by the light
Yet we hide our shadow behind us
So no light can touch it and others
Cannot see what lies within
As we creep into those crevices
Our blacked souls will
someday overpower us forever

The Last Laugh

You thought I was really dead
Because you made me put
A bullet through my head

You’re telling, in hell I now roam
And all that smoke and flame
Will forever be my home

Sweetheart do not whine
For I’ve been told by them
You’ll be here in due time

Next to me, you will stroll
As I get to watch demons
Ripping apart your soul

Cry Not:

Cry not for me
For no love did you show
No comforting words
Did I ever know

For years you told me
To suck it up, be a man
I don’t have time
To hold, your hand

Yet when it’s for you
I’m to do my job
Watch what I say
Don’t act a slob

Now that I’m dead
I finally understand
I never could have been
Your perfect man
