A blog about whatever randomosity my fevered mind conceives.

Faceoff

Surrounded by pandemonium…

Imprisoned by vampiric convictions that gnaw at the flesh –

That feed off the souls of the would be romantics

And dine on the pain of the suffering masses.

Dreaming a dream that is more of a nightmare,

Tasting a taste that is like loathing on the tongue.

Here we stand;

Facing you – you face me.

Facing me – I face you.

There is a standoff of moralities –

A dance to the tune of mutually assured destruction.

Without empathy

We are the losers

Left to drown in our own wreckage.

Without compassion

We are the anonymous warriors

Fighting only to haemorrhage.

Without vision

We are the breeders

Of a malfunctioning civilization.

All bound as one –

As two –

As an infinite sea of soiled faces.

Driven by a famine we can’t feed

And the whisper of a divinity we can’t feel,

We become vacant husks;

Simple shells without an understanding of purpose.

Locked in this cold embrace

We grapple.

Shackled to nothingness…

Tethered to the inner fiends that suckle at the teat of our terrors –

That lick the beads of anxiety from out brows

And ravage our innocence, sacrificed in vain.

Believing a truth that is more of a lie,

Feeling a caress that is like acid on the skin.

Here we stand;

Facing me – I face you.

Facing you – you face me.

There is a confrontation of wills –

A scrimmage to the death of our megalomaniacal methods

Without sympathy

We are the broken

Left to fall apart in our own hands.

Without affection

We are the demons

Blazing only to extinguish.

Without remorse

We are the murderers

Of every idyllic vision.

All fettered in cables of odium –

Just drifting

In an ocean of misunderstanding.

Captivated by false promises that won’t hold,

And the longing for things we don’t need

We become androids;

Programmed only to march without the concern of destination.

Eternally shackled to our perfunctory insecurities,

We fail.

We fail.
