Atrophy to Ashes

At first we could barely keep our hands off each other
But time is a slow venom
That causes romance to atrophy
Now we can barely stand to touch each other

I live a secret life
Like a fire chief
Who moonlights as an arsonist
Fiery desires replace complacent kisses

You burn in my selfish flames
But refuse to admit we’ve grown apart
Like Siamese twins
Who deny they’ve been separated

As I walk by the charred remains
Of a once vibrant romance
I see you desperately trying
To capture all the scattered ashes
As they blow in the wind

In a moment of clarity
I realize why love and reason
Are enemies

Occult of Personality

I take the path of excess
To the palace of wisdom
Redemption is worthless
Beauty and fulfillment of the senses are priceless

I explore every vice
And indulge in deadly sins
To awaken my senses
And escape the soul’s prison

Subconscious desires rise to the surface
Instinct replaces what I’ve been taught
Morality is relative
Ambition is blind

Chaos is strangely intriguing
Like the chance to sleep with an ex lover
One more time

I left you long ago
Because your kisses lost their flavor

Now I hear the serpent laughing
As I frantically stab my hideous portrait
My past sins punish me with age

Once I’m wretched and withered
The serpent smiles
And then slithers away

Faustian Pact

The reaper leaves us
A trail of common sense
That leads to the grave

Divorced from reason
I nail my soul, to the devil’s altar
In shadows and lust

Your lips on my skin
Are clever catalysts for chaos
Sweet ecstasy, until the sunrise betrays us

In the cold light of day
Happiness and pleasure
Are seldom synonymous

Denial is the architect of illusion
I can only look in the mirror
When I manipulate my reflection

Insomnia

Romance awakens the unconscious
And in heartbreak it never sleeps
An insomnia of revelations
Shattered promises, we swore to keep

Paper tigers and Icarus wings
Fly to the sun, when the siren sings
Oedipus eyes to navigate the maze
False bravado, caught in the minotaur’s gaze

Your Prometheus Kiss
Stole the fire from my heart
The eagle is my friend
But you tear me apart

Luscious lips and Freudian slips
Red herrings lead me between your legs
Denial is a warm bed, and a lustful lover
On a night of cold truth

Faithful

Honesty is a disgusting creature, that we decorate with lies
Desires become more destructive, when they’re locked up inside
We believed that fidelity was necessary, until we looked into strange eyes
But we ignored the jealous undertow, and the changing of the tides

Their lips on your skin
My hands on strange flesh
Suspicion slithered into our minds
Poisoned our trust, and caused us to question things
That we thought were set in stone
