Ancient Voices (2005r)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

My voice grows tired,
my mind hurts from overload.
I came here seeking,
maybe to find myself.

Now all I hear are egos,
arguments and disdain.
As the ancients pull rank,
and shut out the seekers.

Who the hell made you a god?
Who gave your opinion credance?
Who said I have nothing to offer?
No wonder this place grows dark and rank.

And you wonder why no one stays,
or maybe think you ran them out?
No, you sad close minded being,
we just decided its ok to be different.

Liquid Sky (2005r)

Give to me one more kiss.
Impart your spirit on my memory.
Chill my heart with a touch.
Ignite me with a glance.

House Of The Haunted (2005r)

Once again I've returned,
here I sit watching ghosts.
In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

Set Me Free (2005r)

Tie me down and set me free.
Peer into me and make me sting.
Flay my flesh, release my soul.
Make me cry, make me bleed.

The Room (2005r)

I've walked the streets of London.
Set sail for the shores of France.
Found tequila
on the beaches of mexico.

Son (For J.M.W. My Little One) (2005r)

The waves crash the shore,
like the thoughts in my mind.
And the storm swells
to the point of breaking.

Untitled (Ix) (1993)

Do you understand what you hear?
Can you afford to see the truth?
Look past your preconceptions,
forget the stories told from a thousand lips.
