Bestowed Upon Me

hand-1549399_960_720

You stood on the other side

Tucked behind your shadow

I was wicked

For you, for me, for life

Decrepit deceit runs

Long in my blood

Bestowed upon me

As the child of a demon

Bestowed upon me

As a soul of the damned

Where was my light, my splendor, my wonder

You reached out, dared to touch me

We stared and smiled

Silent and begging

Hopeless and wanting

We wanted to pull away

Instead, we burned

Turned to ashes

Together

We started anew

Branch Out

tree-3199003_960_720

Branch out into the dark

Don’t forget your bleeding heart

Blanket the past with deception

Beat back truths with despondent dejection

All that time you wasted then

Plastered inside your plastic grin

Today is tomorrow’s yesterday

What then will you beg to say?

If only, if when, if you, if why

How can you care when you didn’t try

Step back into your simple darkness

You’re gonna feel it regardless
