My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. I am but a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. I have balanced on the edge caught the dark and lit it fought the demons off the ledge brought them down and faced them found the truth behind the door hanging from the doorway internalize the outer space reasons merely shadows Right here so far away all you hidden all you missed all you longed for so far away fragments of a memory fragments of a lie fragments of a soul Washed out faded stretched in time Event horizon you tried to hide Phased a rift in time For every step for every word you drifted closer so far away Closer, closer away from me Closer, closer, closer your private hell Point of no return And as you reach the other side no angles will await you eternal damnation the endless journey across the river Styx
Time goes in circles; inertia Nothingness' apathetic empathy Everything is geometry: The 11th Commandment The 6th Pillar The 9th Spoke The o in the middle all around it Do 10 jumping jacks on the spot, Imagine at the same time that the Earth follows your movements so that your feet at no time counteracts the gravitational field. Remember that you are a small blue glazed hollow ball of clay, meandering in the oceans' waves. Close your eyes and run to the nearest bus stop while maintaining the picture in your mind's eye. Jump on the first bus, and continue your journey into the night.
We wasted every word with unspeakable precision until nothing could be separated from the world The wound on your hand grows into your soul gates burst open to rooms with frayed wallpaper A red mass of light whispers adhesive filaments from fatherless infants tongues a lie is bleeding into itself Everything returns to sender Everything returns to center
A promise wasted promiscuous lies given away a forgetful longing forgiven for it's wastefulness in the oblivious moment revealed as a hollow memory of your shadows' fading love A truthful trusting fist two palms apprehensively clinched together an eternal applause cut in half stuck on repeat by your lips' betrayal waking up alone in nothingness' suburb Blue spring bloom the sweetest flower bitter withered in the dreary night of our loves' sudden winter the storm that choke the only witness still alive From yours truly: I warm my distress on the not quite yet died out embers of our unions pyre forever stuck as a flickering imprint in my minds' dark deserted ally
