Siren

I once liked a girl
Who was beautiful
On the inside
And on the outside
And I could never understand her

We would go out on a mind trip
To lands unknown
To accompany Daniel and Luce
As they made their way back to heaven
And back down to Earth again

I would sit down and think
What would she like me to do
Should I take more initiative
Is she mad at me
I never knew

The nights would come
And I would turn into a monster
Against the world and against myself
And she would try to comfort me
And she would fail over and over

The scars grew daily
As I woke up with little recollection
And I would try to talk to her
Hope she would laugh
So that I could have a chance of laughing

And mistakes were made
I was a candle willing to be burnt out
At the whims of the people I loved and cared for
And I burnt myself out
Because she wanted me to start anew

Now that the flame is gone
And I have forgotten all feelings towards her
The memories reside in my mind
Everything that I want to remember
Locked away in silence

And so I say to you, siren
That one day you pine for another
And I will pine for another
And we will remember those days
And we will not regret that Thursday

Letters on the Wall

The first time I saw a word on that wall
Was when the plague came along
We all hid in our houses so we would be safe
But someone went out to write four letters
And all he wrote was “LIVE”

The second time I saw a word on that wall
Was when the army took over
We were told that they would protect us
But someone went out to erase a letter
And all that was left was “LIE”

The third time I saw a word on that wall
Was when I was getting ready to start anew
I was told to follow in someone’s footsteps to be safe
But someone went out to erase all but one letter
And all that was left was “I”

Today that wall was taken down
It stood in the way of the construction of a building
I was told that I would be taken care of inside
But someone went out to write four letters on the ground
And all he wrote was “LIVE”
