Monsters In The Dark

Now listen to what I have to say

For the wicked hide in the shadows of this day


You know nothing of what is of me

You may know the color of my eyes

But not of what they are capable to see


Now here, I've warned this upon you

For not every smile is ever true


Everything is not set in stone

You may say there is an answer

When nothing is completely known


Close your eyes, please understand

That what you may rely on is a blood-thirsty hand


Unknown of what they truly are

Watch think before you turn and talk

Someone so close to you can be so far


So remember before you go on and say

"But why would anyone do this to me anyway?"


Human nature can be full of evil and greed

Unwatched, A monster born within the shadows, full only of self pleasure and need.

I Have an Unknown Friend

I have an unknown friend, who lives in the sky

Why I question him, I do not know why

I should not go to look for him, they say

But I know he'll want to look for me someday

I wonder, I ponder, even as I sleep

I dare not awake, for I have gone too deep

But again, the sun calls to another abrupt wake

Alone again, to find an answer for my sake

I take another step foward, for this I will fight

Forever wrapped in this question, how it echoes through the burning light



You asked why I always run

Always keeping everyone at bay

Letting them love me so long

Then hollering “Whoa” and “Nay”


Do you not understand how I left

Pieces of myself everywhere I’ve been?

Every time I have ever dove feet first

I found pools of broken glass, so I swim


Can’t you see just by looking at me

I’ve been dependant for so long

I don’t know anything anymore

Just that I need to stand strong


I don’t know what the future holds

I have no clue where I’m going

Or any real idea what I’m doing

I just have this deep knowing


I just have to keep moving forward

Keep trying to make myself better

Hold true to my core self

And believe everything will be okay

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one was a conversation I had with someone explaining why I was the way I was.

Make It


Make a dove within
for raven is sin
Make a flower outside
for thorns are arrayed
Make a waterfall towards
for swamps awaits
Make things you want
for you are in grant.
