Devil In My Bones

I'm on a bad trip from the salty water rushing from my eyes.
While you drink to your wife and stare and the woman who's curves fill the space that I once lived in,
I lay in my bed at night, with eyes closed reminiscing of the heaven that was once your arms.
Where the gods smiled down and everything was beautiful.

Now, with every move your knife twists around deeper into my stomach.
They told me death was nothing to fear, yet now that I no longer live,
I realize death was something to be feared.
We were angels once, but you broke my wings.

The novacaine doesn't numb me.
The alcohol doesn't help erase your memory.
Am I in love?
Was it the thing you said?
No. For it was what you didn't say.
It murdered my heart, and pureed my soul.
I hope your weighted heart flies across the earth as Zeus flings you from his hand.
Oh karma's a bitch?
So am I.

Never Mind, Here Lies Deja Vu

The reason why you don’t believe in angels is because you’ve never looked into the mirror.
The reason why you’ve never seen God before is because you’ve never felt your soul.
The reason why you’ve felt the devil’s claws in your back was because your body was eaten alive by the earth.
The reason why the demons live in your eyes is because you thrive on their inspiration.

Never before could I say,
I’ve met an angel.
I’ve seen God.
For the inadequate expressions on my face say otherwise.
But now I know it to be true.

My skin flutters in the wind where the demons rent my flesh.
I know those demons,
For they lead my soul down this path.

Your beautiful wings spread open before me,
Your eyes sparkled like the rubies that the gods set in stone before your time.
Each of your fingers are tiny diamonds that fall on my chest.
Your heart is the furnace that warms my shivering limbs.

Do you captivate all humanity this way?
Or did Mother Earth pull you out of your ashes just to bring to me this joy?
My mouth can never speak the thoughts my heart feels the need to say.

Your spell encompasses me
As rainbow fairies dance around me.
All I hear is your breath as the rushing of wind.
Here I found my ablution,
Under your beating heart lies my peaceful requiem.
