My Job

Plunging into sheer darkness
A night that reigns victory
Presented itself unbidden yet brazen
Miles and miles within my eyes
Covered by nothing but black
Pages and pages of ebony word
Accounting for each and every misty fallen
Anyone would have waver at the very thought
Of a night that comes and inhibits their homes for a decade

Absence not felt nor seen
When the eyes gaze upon nothing
But rooms and rooms of solid dusk
Gleaming cold shivering through a century of evil
Fear overcoming every shred of warmth
Marking the end that couldn’t have come sooner
Devoured souls shrieking within dead shells
Let me vanish, evaporate in this glaring eternity
For I cease to exist in your presence

More Than One Way To Say Goodbye

There’s more than one way to say goodbye
Be it breaking or healing
Either taking along a beating heart
Or leaving a shattered one behind
To nurse its wound
Stitch by stitch, patch by patch
Fixating on a shadow that refuses to follow
A smile that shivers with insecurities
And a love that will just not stay

There’s more than one way to say goodbye
Be it an empty bed in the morning
Either leaving behind that familiar scent
Or giving that one short moment of joy
Just to realize that
Misunderstanding, misinterpretation
Is all that you’ve been lead to believe
A heart that wants to keep believing
Slowly weakens and losing faith

There’s more than one way to say goodbye
There’s more than one way to leave and go
There’s more than one way to loosen your grip
But there’s also many many ways
To not break my heart.
