Open my eyes to find this life has been a lie
I am no longer relevant
Cast aside this disguise that shields these deadly tides
Take me away with the current
I'll drift until I lift up from this massive mist
It's intentions were pure but sick
I cannot forget the waves and how they allure me

Disintegrating into an oblivion it seems
Bleed; the blackness envelops me
All along the seams it's dripping... beckoning.

Transform to death. (To death)
Becoming myth. (This myth)

I take form amidst the fire exempt from moisture a feral pyre
Singe my skin before the moment of flaying
Tainted disguise I remove this sickly beating hard prolonged and shrude
Insatiable my hourglass begins to tip
I scream a deafened shriek
I lay ever so weak
Crawl back
Falling back.
I loathe this horrid curse
I wait for my life to burn away
Another consuming climax

What is this wretched place?
An abomination of my once called fate?
Twist perverse into a diluted glass
Filled with the remnants of a tired past.
What is another chance?
Embraced by the end with somber hands
Carry me, hold me, lift me, center me...
These palms I despise thee.

Dropped off in a desert of desolation
No voices carry in the mist of the dead
Footsteps grow louder with every step that I walk
Shadows stream across the sand.
Unknown are those
They lie awry disposed
Reanimate to distinguish my life from death

Scorned; thine manic archetype reborn
An archaic will to be sodomized by the fleshy, yet ripe empty corpse
Thine pieces of hell streaking the floor.
Oh I perpetuate now ever more
Bloodletting from this vivid gore

Anathematized to a growth far beyond the trees
Bestowed unto me
I am assuring blasphemy
Rooted to the crust forever lining my plea
Curse me with your husk as I bleed
Veins fused and overwhelming
Simply I die in the thousandth design
Seeking life yet merely wasting time.

Praised as the myth.
Ominous bears the complacency of this void.
Screeching whiteness in a non-ending sense.
Spread eagle on the mirrored floor
Wondrous begets helplessness.
Ignorance yields the tired, straining mind.
An infectious voyage throughout life's own spine.
Leper; I heed at your call.
Sleeper; I watch your dead eyes as you dream.
