The Time Will Come.

Poem By David Lacey

When will the time come that there are no more parades,
No more celebrations, no more charades,
They'll swipe away the illusion so quick, no one will see it coming,
It seems no one will care, when the skies have fallen,
As they tunnel out the mountains to live beneath the ground,
What kind of life awaits them there?

Starving for light, crying only for echoes to drown them in sorrow, in solitude
Even when they no longer feel like crying,
Where do they turn, when do they run, will they be told?
Will they heed the warning of the sun as it glows red in the sky, as the moon dissappears, no one asks why, no one even notices that there's not a colour in the sky.
Out of bounds, lost out of reach, washed up upon some washed out beach
So far now from the rolling green valleys of our homeland.

A Fool In Love

A swollen heart of infected blues weeps un-sleeping throughout the nightmare,
I feel unworthy of affection, as though I walk without direction,
Always searching for an answer to the questions that lay forever undefined.
All around me is chaos spinning within a churn of emotion, yet I am stationary,

Adorn Death

Adorn death
Breathe breath
Know life anew.

A Droplets Ripple In The Ocean

Having chased Knowledge down and feasted upon her dissected corpse
They are left awaiting the flavour of Wisdoms flesh.
Never to know that they are wishing for tomorrows sorrow today
They are as cursing themselves with the words they say.

Sensation Penetration

Sensation penetration, a diversion at the best of times,
At worst a crime of violent colours, as shadows feed,
As shades parade, breeding upon the insomnia of the sun.
Hoping as they prayed his time was done, yet here he comes
