Never Turn Your Back On The Dead

Widowed in mourning glow
The memories emblazoned
My raptured holds devoured
By toxic assassins 
My fleeting loves expired

Holding none
Vacant embrace
The pain never goes away
Enslavement to this place 

As I look behind dead eyes
In hindsight blue
In azure bloom
Reflections of the choice I made 
The painted hue of fresh built tombs

Holding none
Vacant embrace
The pain never goes away
Enslavement to this place 

Solace 
Has escaped my grasp
Unending
Descent into burden
Misery 
Consumes all thought
Cold river of despair
The proof that I’ll rot alone

Nothing but fear now remains where composure once stood
Once stood

(Never to return)

Cancerous breadth
The poison images
Of shadow rivals
Reborn from the dead
Haunted by error
The distance too great
Unable to traverse
The void, the hollow earth
(Into the void)

I can’t remember the warmth of their hearts
I’ve gone too far
Too far

I’ve traveled to depths untold
Felt each side take hold
Tempted the solemn glow
Of the eternal below
Lifetime of chaos I’ve reaped
Turned my back on all I’ve built
And all I’ve dreamed of
I must succumb

Dreaming dead
Voices from beyond
The chorus of venom
Eidolic storm of loss
