lost in the memories of before
I dream of folly.
I knew it was not true
but I want to believe in those promises.
I wanted to believe that the hope you gave me
I wanted to believe in the mirage I held
sandcastles built in the sky
balanced on the clouds of my dreams.
Tears I have wept, tears I have cried
dejected with the loss of your heat.
lost in all those memories of before
and knowing it never meant a thing to you at all.
Laying upon the rocky altar
bloody and in chains
Demons cluster at my feet
rejoicing in my pain.
They feed upon my despair, the words woven
they suckle deep at the deceptions I weave
Gorging upon my flesh, my soul
until bloated they fall aside,
To be replaced by some more.
I stare blankly at the mountain above
knowing not the damage done
for the demons have once more come.
And I fall into their dreams, their blatant bullshit
while their claws dig deep, making me wince.
