I like alot of your stuff Baron, it's very frenetic. It seems like it's mostly a stream of conciousness.


Most of my "poetry" is in song form because I generally write it to a guitar melody, but this is one of my favorites called Reflections


I stare into the depths of my soul, and I wash my sins away
Thousands of moments pass through my mind, and those memories evaporate
I trace the lines of the years, betraying a past that’s gone
My face staring back haunts me, and I destroy this image I’ve become

[Chorus]
As the pieces fall to the ground, reflecting what might have been
The truth is scattered all around, reflecting the lies within
The blood falls without a sound, reflecting the misery
Inside the pieces I have found, reflecting a broken me

Thousands of eyes stare back at me, mirroring the lives I’ve lost
I piece together my existence, remembering the choices I’ve crossed
The regrets throughout my life, remind me I can’t go back again
So I let the pieces fall down, to be forgotten where they remain

[Chorus]

And as the pieces fall to the ground
Reflecting a broken me
And as the pieces fall to the ground
Reflecting me

[Chorus]
I'm not talking to myself, I'm just the only one who's listening...

Just a little spit I wrote for a Word Prompt.

Genesis and Paradigm

And so the Cosmic Albatross left roost,

To join in execution of a Stellar Rendezvous

Alongside the Nebulous gods of space

It strained its sooty wings in Ludicrous Labors

Spurious to reason, and Contemptuous to Spatial Law

These vain Sultans of the void made games of Time

And in their mirth, juxtaposed the empty nothingness

Replaced cold ether with the shenanigans of a material universe

Spectrums were strummed in song, and Light and Energy glittered as gems

Quarks and Continuums were fashioned as a playful Jest

Quantum Sheiks and Daemon Lords plied these primordial scenes in competition

A furious flurry of artisans forging galaxies, shaping stars, painting the cosmos with colour and light

This Fetal thought of a universe delighted the Promethean Host

And the Albatross cawed its bliss, bringing forth Entropy and Physics

Lo, the work was done, a universe complete!

Resplendent! Grand! An achievement unmatched!

And so the Haughty Demiurges began to gloat over their gaudy toy

Then stopped and shrieked and trembled--they realized their mistake!

For the unthinkable gods, poisonous was the surety of a concrete universe

Anathema were the Euclidian planes of a realm dictated by Order

Wonder turned to horror, and jubilation came to flight

And the Albatross flapped away with its kin in desperate search for sanctuary

They hid from normalcy in the farthest dark corners, where safe nothingness still reigned

Then wrapped in cocoons, they vowed to sleep; until the day that Existence crumbled, and then return

And once more dance the timeless tune, of the days before Genesis and Paradigm.

Its the end of act one, the final sunset on this dark day.
throw up all your regrets and think of the things you've thrown away.
Silence the words in your head numb, your sorrows till you forget them.
Close the book with the chapters of your life passed out on the bathroom floor, here i seize alone.
When i should lay next to you

chorus *(so take a step back and look at what you've done) its a perfect masterpiece of broken beaten memories (when we dress him in black will you think of what you've done) is this what you do simply bite the hand that feeds you i feel bitter in time and its time for goodbyes tonight i sleep in my tomb*

Your blood shot eyes look spent, in this period of bereavement.
When i've passed and your just ambivalent,
fate has a way of turning things around (Edens not forever!).
And in this desolation and pointless succumbing this body still clings (a vessel forever grudging) for you.
And here i seize alone when i should lay next to you
*chorus*
(outro) this body still clings (to such a deficient treachery) for you
and here i seize alone
this body still clings(to these broken jaded memories)
when i should lay next to you

A torn out heart is red,
an oxygen starved face is blue,
you better start running boy,
because I am after you!

This year is coming,
To it's jolly end,
No thanks to those Mayans,
No apocalypse trend,
The world turned on,
Round and around,
The days kept on coming,
We all found,

With men sat on thrones,
And women slaving away,
Their kids running riot,
Like all hell's to pay,
Santa was coming,
On his merry way,
Snuggled in their beds,
They waited for Christmas day,

Now Christmas was here,
And now it has past,
No tinsel, nor tree,
These days have gone fast,
Just people sat around,
Gorging on food and beer,
awaiting glad tidings,
Of the coming new year.
