ghost in the walls

Broken compass still moving forward
A constant north, the one I’ll never know
Like everything, I gravitate to what ends up killing me
We’re separated by a hell of a lot more than the sky…

~*~

i have not dwelt

simply to haunt the stubborn

nor to be wasted away

by tides of hubris.

i may be a mere spectre

but i am nary a ghost

nor another figment of your

mischievous imagination.

you may think me but

another flickering shadow

lingering past peripheral visions,

in the darker corners of your

tired, bleary, hallucinating eyes,

but i am not transient

and quiet mantras and disheartened

prayers will not be enough to

make me go away, vanish.

and my silhouette shall eclipse

your sunrise mind, until

persistence turns to paranoia

and mysticism turns to madness,

morphing your shallow dreams

into abysmal nightmares…

you deserve it,

for you are a murderer—

you have not killed my body,

but you have mercilessly mutilated

my spirit, leaving my heart

beating steady yet badly hollow,

making me vainly ache

for the former tragedy instead.

with what you have done,

it is only fair and just for me

to be the deathless past

billowing rather furiously

behind your closed curtains,

trapping you in my perpetual gale

as you have done to me.

for i have not dwelt simply

to be another superstitious legend

passed around in whispers,

nor will i stay in insignificant limbo

just to be entirely washed away

by the arrogant tides of

the fear you once called love.

~*~

Your wings might be broken but it’s not too late
You hide your emotions so you can escape
You can’t be afraid to make mistakes
And you can’t fake perfection…

UNIVERSAL HUBRIS

The height of man’s hubris

Is greater than the galaxy’s imminent scars

And far more self-destructive

Than the chasmic rage of a collapsing star.

~*~

SUBATOMIC PARTICLES

Self-sustaining energy particles moving in constant disposition

Flying restlessly and bumping, in a state of endless collision

Combined together, and we’re completely inseparable, ever entwirled

But try to split us apart, and we’ll blow up and annihilate this entire world.

~*~

TESLA COIL

Electrify my bland empty soul with your high voltage resonating

Light me up with your purple streaks of wild dangerous lightning

Serenade me with sonorous music from your silver metallic currents

Guide me to sheer phosphorescence and make my damaged circuits reconnect.

~*~

QUANTUM LOCKED

I always appear to be in a state of vivacity, cloud-nine jubilance

People take a single look at me and see a belle epoque of elegance

But no one will know the truth, and nobody else will ever see

Because I only enter the state of decay when there’s nobody gawking at me.

~*~

SINGULARITY

Approach with utmost caution the raging black hole that is my body

If you dare, pass through my dark event horizon’s melding singularity

The geodesic paths to witness and scalar invariant curvatures to see

And once you have survived this impossible ordeal, we’ll be together in sempiternity.
