Beast (1993r)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

I am locked in a battle,
and my soul is at stake.
Every waking moment
is a constant struggle.
For the Beast is within me
and it wants blood..

I can only rest
while Im asleep.
And even then
I can not trust myself.
For one slip in control,
and it will rise to rule.

Never will I be free
of this burden.
For it is a part of me
and can never be severed.
Forever must I strive
to maintain a balance,
For fear of awakening
The Beast.

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

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

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.

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.
