Random Quote

A dagger of roses plunged through my heart, let’s lick up the blood and gaze the stars.

I’m bound by a hellish glow of fire and ice
I’m freezing as I fall further to what’s not right
there takes a lot in me, to fight this being
the truth cannot hide, it’s always on my mind
fire in the way, I wish not to say:
“I’m breaking this gray light, deep within my soul
I’m pressured into growing cold, spitting vile words untold
don’t let my thoughts unfold.”

Alone I hide, what’s truly in me
secrets untold, I wish not to speak
stitch up my mouth and don’t let me bleed
just watch me gasp for the secrets sealed within me.

Murder me next to a full moon
watch as this red rose drips my blood
a touch of my thoughts on scrambled ink
this paper glows in the night,
telling my deepest secrets to statues of the dead
I only wish their voices would escape my head.

I’m branded by my own secrets
I’m scarred for my fate has yet to be sealed
dancing statues play a harp in this wooded field
I only hear my treasured soul screaming out fire and ice
my body weakening with this tomb I had built around me
I don’t belong in this sacred body.

    Great as always, my friend. I think that you´re so right when you say “I’m branded by my own secrets”. Those secrets are what make us unique. For real.

    Thank you for sharing!

      We’re all branded by our secrets, and while our secrets can make us unique, they can also haunt.

      You’re welcome, and thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts Luis!
