ForEver

by

Alex Anonymity

Four years of nonsense
Four years of pain
Seems like
ForEveR.
But, now its in my blood
It's got a free ride to see the sites
To see the things I never will
Don't want to
Got it late one night
From who?
I don't remember
Now its with me,
ForEveR.
Something I'll never forget
Never forgive myself
ForEveR.
A face in the rain
A smile in pain
A night of heat
Between the sheets
Now I'm damned,
ForEveR.
I grow old quickly
A day is like three
And to think
It'll be this way
ForEveR.
Creeping around in the lonely spaces
That is me
That is it
We are the same
And will be
ForEveR.
We both are diseases
One more literal than the other
I am a new race
Of a different color
One of nothingness
We are creatures of destruction
People fear us both
And will,
ForEveR.
My influence is felt from one to another
Passed in the hope of a better tomorrow
A five minute smile
For a lifetime of pain
Remember, a lifetime is
ForEveR.
Your dreams of happiness: gone
Children are past
Born dead they would be
Not dead but nearly
And chained to their fate
ForEveR.
Not for a day
Not for a month
Not even a year
But,
ForEveR.
You are not the only one
Others have died
Others have lied
Said they were safe
Said they wanted you
ForEveR.
But then they found out
The tests were all true
They'd known it
ForEveR.
But they didn't let you in in on the joke
Locked you out in the darkness
To live and die
They way you should
In a chair
Tied to the floor
Electricity running through you
Standing up is your hair
That is how people view you
And they will
ForEveR.
Blame you for your actions
That's ridiculous
You've been under their control
ForEveR.
Why should you be steering now?
Without the training one needs to survive
Now you're traveling down a one way street
Brick on the pedal
Heading for doom
With no choice
Just want it to slow down
Or speed up
Either way it'll take
ForEveR.
Is a life with you a life at all
You are a post-it note on the wall
A reminder of the past for those to learn by
Had to happen to someone
Why me? Why not him?
Cause he wasn't so stupid
Didn't make the grades
But knew when to watch out
So he wouldn't be fucked up
ForEveR.
Why didn't your god save you?
Isn't that why you pray?
He's supposed to watch out for you
Keep you in reach
But its not like that
No helping hand
He did it himself
Now he's fucked
ForEveR.
Can't even get in on the action
Now that he's like that
ForEveR.
He finds no love in others
Good thing he's nearly dead
They mumble as they leave
The hospital door stands ajar
A solid tone fills the halls
No one goes near
They shut the door
And leave him be
ForEveR.


Chess

by

Alex Anonymity

the chess set was sitting there
no one was making a move
we knew the feelings were so strong
yet neither of us took the chance
kept out of others pants
in a hopeless meandering trail
moving at the pace of a sicken snail

love hungry and sick we moved on

i am a soldier
i am a fiend
im a hopeless lover left to dream
about the stories left untold
about the epic and controlled
you say my fingers are calloused
its from the emotions i try and express
from my movement over your concerns and frets
but the sounds they never come out right
i usually finish in anger
finish in haste
and throw down the instruments
because many a couple drift away
from the sounds they cant resist
from feelings theyd like to deny exist
but their voyage has just begun
and the touch is nothing of what i am
but without them you feel differently
about the progress in our game
about how the pieces are free from shame
about a child left unnamed
before they even move their hand
they examine all the repurcussions it may have
and if they see something they dont like
they might take a little longer to examine whats at stake
you learn from these men
with their calculating ways
and their ever churning brains
their life centers around decisions they make
and you musnt screw it up
because it might as well be a life down the drain
from a moment of extasy
breaths a very real image of mistake
but you dont have to have it that way
when posed with the question just remember what to say...


Her

by

Alex Anonymity

jumping and sreaming her angry fists flair
but he pushes her down, grabbing her hair
sounds escape the small, dark room
people wonder what happens inside
but hes in control
no loss of mind
he knows what hes doing
hell get the rush
doesnt want what he doesnt fight for
not worth the time to unzip his pants
he doesnt care what he gets
as long as its violent
blood flows from the lip that he opened up
with a blow from the belt of anger and pain
he laughs with his power
he wants to play
nothing more than a game
a pastime
a pleasure
one of those things
but now its more
he cant walk away
shes almost dead
you can feel her pain
she slips away slowly
slides to the floor
he yells at her corpse
no remorse
finishes the kill
plants his seed
to carry up above
a message of sin
to bar her from hell
she paid the price
she no longer cares
and to think that she loved
a man of such crime
is a sinister reminder
of the mindset of the time.


Gone by Morning

by

Alex Anonymity

A car screeches by
Her lonely heart screams
A tale of her anger and despair
Mind your own business
Have your affairs
But now she's gone
Her lovely brown hair
A love of the past
Gone in a flash
A victim of neglection
A shard of glass
Take me home she quivered in fear
Had to stay the night
Wait till daylight
Then open your eyes and see shes not there.
