Dark waters

Before the was light

Darkness choked the heart

Creeping thoughts called doubt

Vines turned to steel chains

Sedate in their tyrannious rage

Below the surface nothing is calm

Still waters turning ill will deep

Drowning at the surface

The heartbeat of hell takes life

With open arms people dive in

The exhilaration better than life

Poison

Cursing through your veins

Black ooze breathed into the world

Your barbed tongue lashes outward

The game is hate in the name of love

Anything to make those points

Carnage, your lapel’s bloody rose

Appetite for destruction your persona

There is a ghost of humanity inside

I remember it’s face and profile

But lost it’s touch long ago

What poison do you feast upon

What dark clouds make your horizon

When will you look back to the dawn

Your soul split wide open to hell

Emptiness is your trophy

Just a kiss of that lovely poison

All that remains to be seen
