Paint Me Black

Poem By Perfect Fool

What are you doing?
Don’t come any closer to me
Not again
My heart can't take this

Take everything I have
I don’t need it anymore
It means nothing to me now
Rape me of everything

Destroy my ties
Break me down
Take all I own
But you can't have my dreams

Just don’t paint my dreams black again

Rip up my soul
Right before my eyes
It’s not like there’s any feeling left
Left in it at all

Kill me again
Do it with hate
All the hate you have inside of you
Kill me again

Hold my heart
Until I feel again
Something ebbing away

Set me out alone again
With nothing
Nothing but my dreams
Resurrect my soul

Just don’t paint my dreams black again

Liquid Violence

That which gives me strength
As the stream runs red
Pouring like liquid violence
From a cut in my head

I Am Not Made

I am not made for this
I’m not strong enough
I’ve often wondered late at night
What it’s like to stop

Circles Round The Moon

Tonight I drew a circle round the moon
This night I drew a circle round the moon
Through a glazed up frosty window
I drew a circle round the moon

Be My Sanity

From a low to mania
Standing watching, observing
Twisting inside


Come on, walk towards that light you see
At the end of the tunnel wait for me
I’ll be there soon, when I break free
From this world that’s holding me

Looking Pretty On A Sunday

Early evening the world collapsed
And the ground fell from beneath the sky
The sea blew sideways and rolled away
And the hazy sunrays crowded the shoreline
