Womanizer

His words will always belie his truth
Underneath the charm a body uncouth
Notice how he’s always feeding on the youth?
Always with his nose sniffing like a sleuth
If you knew his heart you’d find he has no ruth

Bloodletting

Why we stress on the ones who will never take us notice
Adjusting our sights, but never finding focus
A socialogical wasteland where most are adulterous
Demoralizing women & society knows this
You think because you’re clean it doesn’t make you an accomplice
Watching others bleed while you eat is atrocious

Love ISN’T Real

Crossed the desert with the hand of a devil
Swore down the road I’d find something better
Pretended to lead when I wasn’t able
He knew we’d never be on the same level
Scolded me and gave me a deferral
4 years later we had to uncouple
For a moment I was lost in a fable
Said love is an illusion, not actual

Intermission

INTERMISSION by @poeeternal / delia ross

You don’t always have to start at the beginning
Not everything is always about winning
And even your soul needs special innings
There’s too much strife not enough grinning
Right about now you could be imprinting
I hope it’s good energy you’re giving
Bandaging those wounds you’ve been bleeding
There’s no loss severing what’s already ending

I mean it’s pretty bad when you can’t trust your own government
Everyone judges like we’re wrecking havoc
One foot in the grave with their bad habits
Staring at me as if on autopilot
Well I can’t be the only one whose tired of it
I’m not the one who needs a straightjacket
You lie as if honesty were a bullet
Karma is headed your way like a casket
Nothing will please me better than your death certificate
Thank God you never created any other degenerate
I bet your heart is racing now you piece of shit
You ain’t felt nothing yet

Apathy

I have but apathy to loan
Where once a heart of gold
Now all but shades of stone

The clouds a frown
The dirt my home

I am but a shadow more
The frost withered on the grass
A sound upon shattered glass
A wall without a door

Hell’s Bride

Status

Torn among the edges still you’re kind
Try to fill the Earth with lullabies
Past the rippled pages laden skies
Filled with tears the years you made her cry

She left behind a rope that you may climb
Above the callous heart disguised as kind
In the ashes his lies you will find
Broken hearts are his favorite kind

I bet he’ll die a hundred thousand times
Once for me will be life justified
Once he’s gone the pain will then reside
Maybe he can be the devil’s bride

Broken hearts employer

Status

Cacophonous sounds from my tv
Lies packaged and wrapped like greetings
Designed to give false readings
Make your heart stop beating
Taking tours in the wasteland
Never was a big fan
He made me cry in Dublin
A mistress as his right hand
Said he’d treat me like a royal
But none of you are loyal
Cause endless paranoia
Broken hearts employer

Don’t Want To Know

I don’t wanna know how many days it’s been
It still feels like day one
You and I cannot be friends
And the Earth no longer turns
We spiraled out & lost control again
Yet my heart it still burns
Always made me last instead-
should have been your number one

#amwriting #poeeternal #songwriting #music #lyrics #poetry #prose #healing #loss

Between cigarettes
There must be some regret
I can’t deal with you now

You bring loneliness
With empty promises
And the promise of child

It’s getting cold, she said
You never were impressed
There’s a lesson here somehow

Always late for bed
It’s the consequence
Of figuring you out

Always wrong, you plead
But it was you instead
Doing all of the wrong

 

 

 

Ophidian

I’ve stood his shoes,
I’ve watched him cry
I’ve heard him tell
A thousand lies
With broken hearts
his alibis
Ghostly spirits,
severed ties
All with smile
And charming eyes
The devil claimed
Another prize
Softly kneeling,
While he’s killing
Wrapped and bound
is so damn thrilling-
His trickery too.
But watch that snake
He has no feelings
While he’s smothering you
