The First of Many

After my previous “avant-garde” poetic endeavour, I figured I’d share another one. This is, of course, dedicated to the person I wrote it for.


“I feel it only necessary to preface a work such as this with a quote.” – [Name Removed]

[Waves] [Close our eyes and count slow,] (Falling Up) (Falling Up)
[In this moment things are getting dangerous.
Oh no.
I can’t find my way.
All these things that left me in their waiting.
—I keep shaking], [feel the wounds (Falling Up)
Hold my hands cradling all the souls] (Falling Up)
But [your body’s empty now,
As I hold you—now gone I miss you,
But I TOLD you—
I remember the bad times,
More than the good.] (Megadeth)
There’s a short list
Of things “I should!”
[I loved you to Death…
I loved you to DETH!] (Megadeth)

[They’re {running} away,
Stirring up dust in the line,
{She} found a place with none of us.
But the words that she said sounded peculiar and strained
Like she couldn’t believe the words that] (Falling Up)
Came from her lips, She said,
“[You’re on you own now, dressed in armour.
If you run faster, you’ll forget.] (Falling Up)
[And now I owe,
I owe the voices in my head,
They said, “were these things miracles?”
Oh-Uaoh, my heart beats like a helicopter.] (Falling Up)
[*Electric noise*
So you want deliverance that {fif}teen years couldn’t bring,
Or you want to bury all the evidence so far down.
All your dreams are always coming true
Either way you still find you take a life
You TAKE A LIFE, OUA– –AOH!] (Falling up)

[Now my heart is shaking and terrified,
But some how you might rescue me.] (Falling Up)
[But you will break your back fighting,
Before you let them break your pride.] (Megadeth)
[Only yesterday
they told me you were gone.
All these normal people,
will I find another one?

I said I need you, does that make me wrong?
Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong?
My heart was blackened, it’s bloody red
A hole in my heart, a hole in my ––––!
I forgot you said,
— —
Who will help me up?
Where’s the helping hand?
Will you turn on me?
Is this my final stand?] (Megadeth)

[Turn the handle to the shadowlands,
Legs will break like shattering glass] (Falling Up)
Asking my
[First mistake—
last mistake.
Next mistake,
no more mistakes!] (Megadeth)
—My swollen bloodshot eyes!
I’ll do anything for peace – I keep waking up
a solemn oath I make
cross my heart please let me sleep…] (Megadeth)

My swollen, bloodlet eyes!
Sees visions in the skies
I have the map, the key and,
I [can see the future.] (Falling Up)
An outstretched hand,
Leave in my sutures.
I pray, if it Please you.

[No lost memories,
they’re just a dream, a fantasy;
in agony, lost family,
and lost for a dream.
Gone now! Yet I’m full of hate] (Fractal Cypher)

Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred] (Megadeth)

And this is where I fall.
I step up to the enemy
And rise from where I crawled.] (Halford)

[This could be all the heaven you need
Life can be wicked, mean and cold
Could this be the end of your living terror?
Come with me, and I’ll train your soul …
Just one thing that I want you to know] (Megadeth)
You can leave, am I a fallen fool?
Come with me, you’ll know what it’s for,
Soon enough—*chokes*

So far in debt, you’re struggling to survive—] (Megadeth)

[Upon my podium, as the / Know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement / Gavel’s bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader / Out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier- / than-thou-could-be-messenger of God!

Fever—You set my soul on fire,
Fever—You fill me with desire,] (Judas Priest)
Fever—[I’m more alive I’ve ever been] (Ellie Goulding)

Lost in this nightmare.] (Far From Reality)

You inspire me at my most terrific
And at my most degenerate.] (To be Continued)
[Now I know that I’m alive,
All the loneliness is filled
By you, inside] (Falling Up)
(Stay) Listen to
All my dreams, love that lasts, pain that heals
And take, take your time
But move so fast, ’cause hearts move on—

This ti-i-i-ime it means—

[Against your heart; don’t be afraid!] (Falling Up)
