Autumn approaching soon
Closer, whipping flash of chill
Summer disappointing no matter the experience
Seasonal change and the children stand still
Playground frosted, carefree laughter accosted
And adulthood follows suit
Suit, tie and opinion mute
Grindstone labour traditionally computes
Only centuries lost were aware of the vague root
Birthdays and Christmas
Counting down the hitlist
Unpopular adjustment angles to fuse its worth
The system says exercises in mob rule immediately succeeding birth
Muscles expand explosively
Negating forlorn threads of subsistence
Scattering from semi-universal equal measure
Erudite displeasure stands firm in its insistence
To sway the balance, to blur the line
To stubbornly retain control over the valance
To flood calamity on all else benign
Conveys with it a swarm
A hive in severe disrepute
Culling peculiar observation of intense speculation
A crowd holds enough potential to dispense doubt
No doubt that beckons intimidation
A single witness realises proof is self pity against the congregation
And the man slinks to shadows
Defeated and trying to pursue anything more than this
A rose, 20th century prose or one less sense to regard; take the nose
Skin those lips so as conversation is redundant
Keep those eyes because even pitch black,
With a mental capacity suggesting a bowery haunt, seems repugnant
Medicate to alleviate symptoms enduring
Dimly lit rooms will claim successful curing
Obessions and hypersensitivity
Have garnered enough experience to consider either Donald or Hillary
Tension crushes on an individual basis
And there is nowhere left to run
Wanting simply to legitimately imitate their smiling faces
Maybe even rest in rationality's good graces
The underlying cause
Producing peculiar effect
Five weeks and counting in anticipation
Adulthood childishly restrains a midnight defect
Sympathetic to the household insect
There is a reason for depravation
Above all else and detrimental to health
And yet the tone stalls
Then reaches the machine
A gentle reminder of the timespan since you were last seen
Stomach churning, crooked spleen
Sweating as though a nervous and lovestruck teen
The gravity of this situation
Will not be undermined
To ignore close relation
Adds pressure to the daily grimd
And all it takes is a reply in kind
Expressing results and so mend a devestated mind
Whatever the outcome
No matter the mistake
Of many I am certain
I will always, for one activity or another, have the deep and wide contrary lake
Aging decahedron
Centrepiece missing, assumed willingly gone
Equal parts in denial of the fact
Try as they might unaware the bitter pill fashions throats to an encased ton
Maturity balks at the notion of fun
Unless it relies on the closest one can get to a six shooter
Without the danger of coming undone
So malaise is commonplace
What ever happened to this jovial character on an unsuspecting face?
The same fate follows a strict route in which each side wil be replaced
Wasted fortune forbids a parting shot at one last taste

We go our separate ways
Leftovers of youth claim theft
Of something unclear we are bereft
The finest roses down over which we will occasionally graze

Drunken musketeers by a thread
Under the influence on a swollen bed
Took the risk and starvingly discarded sour bread
Beginning our singular investment on ankles of lead
A bloodbuzz of my very own
I prolonged necessary deeds until there was no one home
Through the glass i see continuance of habituated deceit
And wolves move swift before succumbing to a repeat

The jury is out, deliberation ceased
Straight paths are too late to stabilize the crease
Friendship, the niche sport
What triumph to declare after a fairweather retort

We go our separate ways
Leftovers of youth claim theft
Of something unclear we are bereft
The finest roses down over which we will occasionally graze
Flustered bluster caught unaware
Heroic dose shrinks
Stealing momentary lamplight pink
Left to questionable devices to reflect and stare

The hold it took wore away as expected
Psychadelic is the music overbearing insignificant responsibility
Tedious deeds are now more than ever palpable instrinsically
At least that is what fragile reasoning detected

Floors as puzzles irregardless of pavement cracks
Neutral balance rids the suspicious scent
The guts of consolation have been spent
Soon comes a family gathering, another underhanded obligation to conceal muddy tracks

I received correspondence from an old something
Refused a timid invitation
Ill timed on sanity probation
Stable enough to consider his pursuit in scandal hunting

Looking forward to the deadweight comprising tomorrow
Expecting reiteration as before
Trip to either local store, opening numerous doors
Given the choice I would trade the day rather than borrow

After dusk we will meet and try to discuss
Patiently listening
Stitched mask glistening
Underneath contempt and disgust

In my hands taped tight
Six slim and single edge
A route to anywhere I please
For a purpose that will forget the light

Together indulging in everything besides
Shared blood distances itself
Monetary savings, cigarettes and unread books on a shelf
All these things, and the people that were, disappeared when everything on the inside died
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.
