I lived to create,
Surely covering the disturbance of a darkening state,
Painting a world of jewels and ravishing tones,
The smoldering pain that turned my heart into stones.

Forgotten realm of hopes to which I was accustom
I seek the echo of a pale but cheerful phantom,
Floating in the meadow of glistening memories,
Chasing the clouds in the sanctum of your worries.

Letting me squeal and moan like one of your creatures
Ravaging angst, mother of all raptures,
You trapped me in your cristal cage,
Reviving the vivid flow of my flaming rage.

I now seek to rip, to claw, to destroy,
Yet I will embrace the mercy I will deploy
Restraining myself to burn it all to the ground
To entangle my being with this strenght that I found.

your stuff is so heartfelt and visceral. The pain and anguish is almost tangible in these words - it's not an easy read by any means but i'm sure you never intended it to be. Really compelling stuff...

Thank you very much :) Yes you're right it was not my intent I prefer when people have their own interpretation of my work. My poems are little secrets I share

I always tried to be kind of obscure in my songwriting although its difficult when you're referring to specific, real incidents. You want people to get the situation because only then can they properly relate to the emotional side of things. Poetry is different though - the harder you need to work the more you get from it... I love the concept of the poems being little secrets, but I think with the need for interpretation everyone (or noone) could feel they are in on the secret ! a good...or bad thing !

That's exactly my point, I don't want people to get the exact meaning of what I write, I want them to interpret it and get their own the emotions and feelings out of it
