DRY ICE

Updated on June 24, 2013

I keep most of my thoughts to myself, cause I'm the least offended - by the truth

I keep my feelings inside my heart, cause someone always wants proof

There's an iron candle inside my chest that's not always a flicker with flame

There's a smoking gun you call my fist and on its palm - is written a name.


My anger keeps me warm

My hatred keeps me warm

The constant droning quiets my storm as I shiver under the shadow of you


If you call me cruel then I've got you fooled, the problem is - I'm way too kind

If you call me names then you I can't blame since that's exactly what I had in mind

I've a rage inside me I once could not control, A lesson learned by loss

I've such hatred, unfocused, unbiased and deranged, warning - stay away from me at all cost


My anger keeps me warm

My hatred keeps me warm

The boom of thunder quiets my storm as I shiver under the shadow of you


I've a feeling no one loves me though I'm not sure why. Is it that they don't understand?

I've a coldness inside me no one wants to be near, unaffected - because that was my plan

A disdain for reality that I need not explain, entertain me - until I go blind

Try to comprehend what society has wrought, just maybe you'll see through my eyes


But my anger keeps me warm

My hatred keeps me warm

The beating of your heart quiets my storm as I shiver under the shadow of you



The Angel of Darkness walks alone
The Angel of Darkness walks alone

      Honestly I gave up in frustration two years ago. I may start looking again soon, if I can bring myself to. Traditional publishers only take established authors so the only options out there cost a couple thousand dollars at the least. Life isnt kind enough to me for to me to afford something like that.

      Feeling good resurrecting this one.

      Your Epilogue and Prologue should be done by now. Did you find a good publisher?

      A fork in the road, eh? I appreciate the luck then, I'll surely need it.

      You write with a stark and pure honesty. A fork in the road is coming for you, I think. Good luck on your journey.
