Love met with no desire Chase the pulse as it expires Maybe then I'll feel the fire Still this corpse is cold to touch Looking now out for a savior One day I may never waiver Until then I'll have to tailor To a life that's just a crutch
What I sought to be was righteous Yet it ended in a crisis That is nothing more than lifeless And I've all but given up Now I wander with these morsels Of a life that's damning mortals How I long to know the morals Instead, I'm choking on the cup
For the drink I drank was soured And it churns and burns with power And the hand has struck the hour Of the time I had to spare Yet as I lift my hands they tremble And they no longer resemble The once valiant, mighty rebel That had longed to beat despair
Now from this crypt I rise a devil With an agony that revels If my heart could only settle Into life or into death So I hold my breath and swallow Wrapped in the blanket of this hollow And I pray this grave is shallow But I fear eternal depth
Shall I commit to reach the summit From the soils I have plummet May I once hear the mighty trumpet See the victories of grace But it's my mind that only bellows The damnation of these echoes Already drowning in the shadows The reflections of disgrace
Now my corpse has become brittle Lined and course, torn and riddled I am seeking an acquittal But I'm the only one, to judge And in this darkness there's no telling Time nor length which I've been dwelling And still internal constant yelling Is the heart that lies begrudged
It is hell I've come to linger Which I can only point the finger At myself, for living hindered If of a life I still possess For I have always been the culprit Built this prison from the pulpit And now remain here to convulse it In the afflictions of distress
I have become the apostle Of the grave that speaks to fossils It was never more a gospel Just the evil I have kept Now buried, forever silenced Knelt to intercede in violence For it is loss that's drawn alliance Within the worshiping of death
umorok@heartofbabel it's really my pleasure to read your work, looking forward to more such amazing creations from you...keep weaving the magic✨
heartofbabel@laveenapintoserrao - Thank you so much for the comment, I truly appreciate you taking the time to write it! I am very glad to read that you enjoyed it, it always means a lot to me to hear that from people. I am not sure I really know how to formulate how I allow myself to hone in on my imagination and bring it to life. It seems to simple to say I merely think of dark and depressing things, but it also seems sort of silly to say that I actually live it out (only in my head). I would almost draw a similarity to being an actor, through personal experiences and the experiences of others, actors/actresses simply adapt themselves to be the character (at least some of them), and so I think it is sort of similar in writing for me. Don’t know if that makes any sense of not?
treble_clef@heartofbabel The feelings are mutual. So kind of you to respond to the comment in such details. I haven't tried writing from someone else's POV.. at least not that effectively.. Hope someday I will
heartofbabel@laveenapintoserrao - It is my pleasure to respond to you, and you are welcome. I’ve no doubt that you’ll be able to put together something phenomenal in no time. Looking forward to see it!
Forgive me god , for I have sinned And asked not for your forgiveness Blatantly I have displayed no regard For your benevolence and your greatness Displaying streaks of an inflated And unrealistic self worth I am guilty of the first sin “Pride” And showing delight the station of my birth For feeling deserving of another’s successes I am guilty of the second sin “Envy” Due to my excessive eating and drinking I am guilty of the third sin “Gluttony” I am guilty of the fourth sin “Lust” For exuding elicit passions and desires I am guilty of the fifth sin “Sloth” Because to make an effort I never aspire I am guilty of the sixth sin “Anger” Due to an imprudent want to exact revenge I am guilty of the seventh sin “Greed” Because I fancy another’s possessions more than a tinge I have committed my soul to damnation Having made a rainbow out of the seven deadly sins Can you ever forgive my foolhardiness I ask As my walk towards Purgatory begins God in light of your graces I promise to display Temperance, patience and charity Coupled with the virtuous acts of Prudence, humility, diligence and chastity As infernal flames threaten to consume me Before I can ask for redemption I repent before you today in hopes Of saving my mortal soul from perdition
