Return

Closer they came;

One turned into ten, which suddenly became fifty

Teasing and mocking, slowly eroding;  stripping his mind

Apocalyptic evolution, played out over time

Too many now emerging, to fight

Run now he must; In search of his light

A friend from his youth, it shone as he grew

Those days long gone, when his soother was blue

Fading for years, darkness took hold

Making him doubt, reckless, and bold

Losing his way, blinded by demons

Innocence lost, and the devil, to pay

All that was good and all that was clear

Tainted by filth, surrendered to fear

Parasites chewed, deep into his brain

Swallowing logic, while planting a grain

The seed inside him, a poisoned vine

Grew strong with the help of, whiskey and wine

Survive though he did, with a blessing of grace

She waits for him, loyally

To remember his place.

His soul now aware of demonic intruders

He runs to his light, pleading for union

To join him in battle, and free him once more

Grace, smiles; with arms open

As she open the door.

Rise

Strip it down

Tear it up

Lose the rags

Wear your gown

 

Join the club

Relax and chill

It’s not too late

Smile to kill

 

What’s done is done

Just let it go

Self abuse

Enough

Please grow

 

Laugh at your fear

Untie the cord

Scratch and bite

Lift up your sword

 

Look for the sun

Behind every cloud

Never relent

Stand tall, be proud

 

Learn to dance

Slip on your new frock

Fuck them all

Let them mock

 

Be true to yourself

For that’s what they fear

Hate filled jealosy

Of you

My dear
