Dead & Gone... So Long!
In a decaying abyss.
With nothing but,
Eerieness and mist.
The lights and all its hallows.
For nothing brings the light,
When I am blinded by sight.
Murder and rape,
Something I don't wish to recreate.
But its all in eye view,
And it isn't just a few.
For the world as we know it,
We hide to not show it.
Is something quite grotesque,
Like an ugly mistress.
We know there is no hope,
So we gather the rope.
Noose our selves up,
Higher and higher up.
All our loved ones together,
Dying slowly forever.
Just to prove a point,
That this world is a burnt out joint.
Ashes and rubble,
Suffocated in a nearly bursted bubble.
Lost and never found,
Never to breath another sound.
