Masochism of The Soul

All alone

You and a conscience

What did you think it would come to

Don't you hear the raven's above

Black sky of infinite wings

Singing the dirge laying you to rest

The incubus in your soul

The past is what you create

Constant regret

Bound by chains of guilt

Desires thought to set you free

A slave to your own darkness

Sins wrought under the moon

Kept hidden from the sun

Secrets lie in silence but so long

Bear the scars on your heart

Keep this voice in mind


The gift laid to waste

This ephemeral existence

Eternity waits in forgiveness

Drifting in disbelief

Succumb to the coming tide

Drown a victim to your iniquity

Look again to the heavens

Know their unfathomable endlessness

To deny a realm greater than the cage you've been confined

The cosmos,sea,wind,the breath of life you take

The dawn,twilight,love,the certainty of death

Simple in their nature,beyond 'wisdom' of man

Take your petty pride of life,breathe your last

To die in ignorance,unknown beauty of truth

A fate even Hell shall pity
