The Fatal Mistake

Poem By Justin Mata

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

You stop for a second, and your mind begins racing
Your knees lock up, and your legs begin shaking
Frozen by fear your mistake becomes clear
You try to stay focused as you fight back your tears

But you know there's no turning back
Deep down you knew this is how it would end
With you on the edge looking down at your fate
Where darkness awaits your fatal mistake

The air’s growing colder, and the sky’s turning black
The rain begins pouring, beating down on your back
A cold gust of wind thrusts you over the edge
Pulls you into the darkness to sleep with the dead

Now watch as the dream melts in front of your eyes
You awake with a yawn and begin to realize
You’ve been given the chance, to escape your fate
To avoid the walk, of pain and hate
An important choice that you must make
For darkness still waits on your fatal mistake

Hypocrisy's An Addiction

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

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

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
