The Bounds Of My Perception

Poem By Liam Hughes

The bounds of my perception
Begins tightening its grip
My thoughts and their ejection
From my mind they only slip
The width of my vision
Seems to drift away
Confusion makes its incision
And keeps my sanity at bay

The echo of the muffled sound
Seeps its way into my ears
As it begins falling down
I give in to my biggest fears
The notions they escape from me
And are lost in empty space
I'm left wondering what they could be
As they disappear without a trace

Deciding where my eyes should look
Seems to take an hour
Grieving for the time it took
The time it did devour
Try to move my listless arms
The attempts are to no avail
Fortunately my body calms
As I accept my attempts that fail

It's A Hard Road

I jumped on the train
I left this old town
I escaped the rain
I'm no longer down

Shadows And Dust

All we may be is shadows and dust
At least we can flow along with the gust
We'll end up travelling further than we must
At least our soles aren't turning to rust

The Social Classes

As people hide their evil traits
The darkness in them lies in wait
As rebels aim towards the state
Venom reveals itself as hate

The Quest For Eden

For you to pass my mind I do desire
To soothe my head and quench my fire
As man grew from the dust
He began to suffer in his lust

Inside A Dream

Things are not always as they seem.
Especially when you’re inside a dream.
Time is like a river time is like a stream.
As it travels down on the moonbeam.

From Death To Life

Cruel destruction, is there any other kind
The loose screw still finds a way to wind
Around it your anguish has become entwined
As it turns you can hear it begin to grind
