Hypocrisy's An Addiction

Poem By Justin Mata

Forgive me for my flaws out number my features
I've lost count of the times I've said 'it will be different this time'
A truth laced with lies spoken ever so insincerely
For sincerity is not without consequence of action

How long can I keep fooling the innocent
How far will this journey take me before I notice the dead end
A distinctive sign as brilliant as a stop light
Yet as insignificant as breathing

A constant search of approval leaves me empty and unsatisfied
Such a strong addiction, So impossible to break
I've lost all my desires, misplaced all of my morals
Accepting failure seems so much easier then admitting fault

I Loved You Once

I loved you once, or so I thought
But now it seems that I forgot
Just what love means and how love feels
Or what it is that makes love real

The Fatal Mistake

I'd be careful if I were you
You walk a more dangerous line than you know
Surrounded by cliffs that scream out your name
Where darkness awaits your fatal mistake

Somewhere Between Dreams And Nightmares

Her words carry over the silence of the freezing midnight air
And when they reach my ears I can hardly wait to hear them
Soft and soothing her voice brings an intoxicating joy
More incredible and more amazing then anything I’ve ever known

What Can I Say You Inspire Me...

You're like an artist with the way you paint me up to be the criminal
I'll be your mistake but not your masterpiece
I watch closely as you depict my character through your paintbrush
Then stare at the canvas as it transforms into a mirror

Life As A Lake

Sinking slowly on a boat filled with holes
The water creeps in with a terrifying chill
It submerges my feet and climbs past my ankles
Letting me know it will soon invade my lungs
