Newest Deviations



Pain from which we should refrain
Cortex stain
Protective layer breach
Yet we feign
Withdraw from crowds and open spaces
Comply with antiquated rat races
Mimic all of the smiling faces
Beneath which are our concealed disgraces

Run routines of open secrets
Necessary deceit
Exit struggle only to repeat
Frozen articulation uncertain of minimal raise in heat
Convinced seconds are hours and so on
Ounces weigh a ton
Kind gestures are considered manipulative
No one communicates sincerity so as not to unintensionally stun

Anxiety ruffles the authentic core
Tears are a deep river
It seems a great deal to request a little more
Anything at all has the ability to trigger spinal shivers
Embers dashed by hopeful immaturity
Eased and guided toward contrition in medicated security
Synthetically stabilised to censor testimony
Of obtusely visceral signals of compatibility
As a jester I took to the stage
Read the impulsive passages from every page
Except for the last that stood between me and everything
Ardently passionate yet I was bound by my stringent cage

Jealousy appears as too tame a description
An example of inner corruption
Doubts have already flaunted condigned deductions
These perceptions of grandeur warrant interruption
Lest I defy better judgment
Attempt to respond in a manner unbecoming of my previous self
The foolish one acts without processing an aftermath so degrading
Embarassment may wait idle if I choose contact exhilirating
Choking on overdue sentiment
Misunderstood before
Everything I should say instead of dwelling on scenarios to follow
Hold them dearly but there will always be one to absolutely adore
The complications are immense
I introduced them disregarding sense
A mans heart is elastic to a certain point
Now these feelings are far too intense
Understudies dont't often commence

The next act waits to react
Insects rely on tact
My pride has been swallowed
Time is owed after being borrowed

Not mine
Never will be
Give me a split second of clarity and courage to speak free
In the arms of oppurtunistic swines
Who desperately cling for bragging rights
In darkened rooms so their wicked intention evades bright lights
For these circumstances I must grow accustomed to settle for
By my side then to the floor
Dancing and taking my irrational fears to new heights

When I think of home
I think of her
When I think of her
My reptilian blood stirs
When it stirs and my heart beats faster
I am flustered with anticipation
The anticipation amounts to consolation
That the only result is persistent intimidation
Reaction sways to the timid murmers
During the process of contronting daring lurkers
Acquaintences in name and nothing more
Offerings of adult reprieve could perceive me as a whore
Digest surroundings and what little there is to devour
The emotive gesture is numb, the taste is sour
For anything other than to gather respect
I would consider myself a despicable suspect
Relationships lay upon foundations of trust
Remove this necessity and we have ourselves chasing dust
Essentially insufficient
Mannerisms connected to their assumptions that I am malevolent
Poorly thought out theories swelling towards prevalence
Paranoia sews doubt to remove me from relevance
Accustomed to disingenous assembly of strange faces
Eye contact fixed on my own shoe laces
Civility on their behalf may guide me to good graces
My attention is set between rejection and rare empty spaces

Grievances are in the dozens
From liars, thieves and distant cousins
I swore to protect the few i care for
Still they turn away looking for more
Comedown machine owed to the score
I've put the wheels in motion to change my style of writing. The idea of writing something that resembles lyrics to a British Steel cover bands garbage output is beyond sickening and I like to think I'm better than that (Or maybe not, you be the judge). A little more introspective features and a little less reliance on classic buzz words for depression. Basically less Evile, more Interpol and Lanegan. My appreciation of Metal hasn't gone away thanks to hidden sub-genres but a change is necessary. For my health, creativity and pride.
