Read At Your Own Risk

Love my loss

Lungs expand

Hate to gain

Lungs collapse


Let us witness

The births of

a million suns

Or the deaths of

a million souls


My mind’s eye sees

A smile crossing

The face of a

Man who’s

Heart died

Sometime between

Now and forever


I want to show you

The way that reality

Manifests itself to me


I want you to know

Just for a moment

What my eyes interpret

What my mind believes


Reality has no form

Shapeless, it contorts

Into absolutely

Anything indeed






I’m here

Always was

And will be

Until you let me in


I watch you

From outside your window

From behind the mirror’s glass

From the other side

Looking into your reality

Do you see me?

Can you hear me?


Your pain is my fuel

Let me twist it quietly

Your anger I created

It will help you find me


Turn your head in the darkness

Gaze upon your silhouetted figure

Reflected in a dark mirror before you

If it’s truly me that you’re seeking

That is where you will find me


Embrace the things

You learned to fear

I’m always close

I’m always near


I wait through the ages

I scream from the portal

I watch with high hopes

I know that you’ll stumble








~~~~~~





Hello, little child

I brought you a rose

I brought you a present

We hope that you like it

We hope that you like us

We've only come to play

We don’t plan to leave

Not quietly, at least

Not till your soul bleeds

You’ll cry out to the priest

And your family will cringe

At the sound of your screams

Uninvited, but the door was open

We each have names

But together, just one

My name is forsaken

Unspoken for ages

My name is a part

Just a part of a whole

My name isn't important

But our name is Legion
