The switch proves itself insidious
Outcome feeds on lashing loved ones
Diagnosis: monstrous
A fitting anchor to match their increasing grief weighed in tons
Unaware the insipid musings concealed and traceless
Had a home, a corner to call its own
Side effects suspected are an infestation in offbeat rhythm
Excuse the verbal lull that has come to define me
Even I am playing dumb unless confronted by myopic symptoms
Rubble, mortar and defeat
Collapsed tenacity blankets feet
Intensity of craving tilts its head
Basking in manipulated smiles of the predictable repeat
Oblivious antagonist from whom I swore to salvage deceit
Expected as much cutting a hole through my heart in the mercy seat
The fundamental elements, besides monetary assets, swing slighly above the red
And money is worthless because I cherish a firm grip and its searing heat
This fever and its considerable expectations
Sweat from brow to palm
Passes by in hesitation
Anticipating a given damn
Observation ignored
Hindsight floored
Coasting through a nameless period
Bastard son of division widely adored

For all the promise
Mass suppression
When recollection resists resistance
And the pouring rain deflates deflection
It is what you have made it
An atheist will bow and pray for closer inspection
Yet wasted are evenings of tolerable brisk atmosphere
Forward by months when you will retrieve swirling incandescence in being right here
Clamouring to the middle
Intrigued by the shuffle
The mediocraty of it all
Drag me against my will to the centre field
Kicking and screaming against conditions of an unspoken deal
Lay me down in the banality of it all

The ignorance
Relative to apathetic animals
As long as we are fed
Bloated stomachs and repetition of the curious parables
Take solace in knowing
That I too am certain of the clouding discomfort
From the glaring quiver in her lips
The rigid manner of her hips
And the distance between of which we are both aware of what I mean
Sustains as a veil to the smokescreen
Behind which are the failures of a shrinking collective
And those of whom I am so protective

The ghost of youth stands in our way
Do you remember that one particular day?
How could you forget twenty-four hours excused by regret
Now its come to odds and placing happiness on bets
Rearding our juxtaposition wherein we can say whatever we want to say

I love you as I always have
But not as much as before
The hurt found its way to me first
My jealousy at anyone else by your side left a sour taste, an unquenchable thirst
And if only I could put a title to the lurking syndrome
The help i need in dire quantities and then some
You would have all my time
Deprived of clarity I may as well communicate in gestures and subtle signs

Of all the people I could spin a lie to and return to nothing
One embrace, no matter how cold, gives me something
Where we go from here is unclear
Currently, hanging fear renders me unable to steer
Vicariously Soaked In Melancholy
Not my best work. Ten minutes did the trick.
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.
