So many words,
Yet no truth in them
So much truth
Not loud enough for a soul to hear
So many things I should have said
But I refrained
I opened my mouth to speak
But the truth choked me
And words were wedged in my throat

I shut my mouth to hold back words untrue
But in impulse they did tumble out
All the things I never mearnt to
Shrill and absolute have I said
All what I said was, is not in the least
All what I mentioned not, is and has been
In senseless defense I uttered words of vanity
With words of sham I charted my course
And made approved what was not

My heart laments the deceit in my words
and in repentance I make known
Truths that lay shrouded in the depths of my soul
By layer upon layer of secrets and lies
and hatchets concealed in intution
With the motive to shield
The truth that could wound those I cherish
Yet  it would set me free
Hence I will hold back no more

An undefined hole
A deep meaningless soul
I look at a stranger in this pool
This pool of an all too familiar dream
A dream of that Companion’s rule
Rule over me creature of eve
Torture me with that confusing whip
That scratches an itch a cant reach alone

My lonely heart sings
In black tones that the audience see
That causes stars to collide
Vision dissolves and evaporates in this sunshine
A heart in this desert without shade
I’m a hole though I know the one for whom I thirst
I dream for that creature of eve
Torture one with that pleasing whip
This deafening noise of the heart makes too much sense to me.
